After year knowing this page I get aware of the included forum. I’ve owned ad VF1000R in 1991, but sold after one year. In 2018 I bought again a canandian modell VF1000RF. In the meanwhile I have modificated some things:
17" frontwheel from the PC25
17" rearwheel from the PC31
full service for the front fork an changed the spring to progressive
Rear shock replaced by a Hyperpro type VF1000F2 to get back the millimeters which I lost by using the PC31 rear wheel.
fueltank prepared with special coating to avoid oxidation
break line substituted
the next projects will be the brakes itself
Welcome to the forum!
Good work getting another R out on the road again.
Cheers from almost Austria
Bought a T-Shirt in Austria a few weeks ago while on vacation. It clearly states on a yellow road sign “There are no Kangaroos in Austria”. They obviously killed em all off when they removed the “al” from our name. We should send them some of ours. to keep them happy.
During my stay in Australia in 2022 I’ve learned the following:
Australia 7.688.287 square km, population 25,8 Mio
Austria 83.900 square km, population 9,03 Mio
Ergo: There is no room for Kangaroos in Austria.
