I thought I should introduce myself here, since I’ve been browsing the site and found lots of good information here, along with a knowledgeable community.
I have just bought two VF1000Rs from ebay here in the UK, I’ve always wanted one and the chance for a “buy one, get one free” was too good to miss!
I am also into Honda CB900-1100s, having a modified CB900 (single-sider, etc.), a CB1100Rb being restored, a CB1100Rc as a long-term project (5 years with my work rate), and now the two VF1000Rs.
One of them is a runner (although it’s clearly not original, as it is on cast wheels (16 and 18 inchers), and I’ll tidy that up a little and run it, the other needs a full restore.
I’ve been browsing and searching the web, trying to find the key identification features for the various models, so that I can be sure which ones I can use for reference, versus which ones are just for interest. I am certain that my two are REs, although one is clearly an import from somewhere they use Kilometers. Their frame and engine numbers fall in the right range.
I’m looking for an RE parts list so that I can start work (I tend to read these …), I keep finding VF1000R lists for 85 and 86 models which I’m assuming are RF and RG, is that correct?
If that is the case, where do you get an RE parts list from, even CMSNL only has a US 86 list?
