VF forum newcomer

Hi all,
I have an 85 VF1000R that I acquired about a year ago. It was bit of a barn find that I have brought back to life.


Managed to get 500 miles ridden over summer… I’ve noticed that the front end is a bit wobbly at low speeds 25/35 mph this smooths out at higher speed? I did replace the top steering race and fitted new tyres. Has anyone else had similar on their VF?
Also, the inside of the tank was in terrible condition and I would be very keen to pick up a replacement if anyone out there has or knows of spare…

Looking forward to reading threads and learning more about these awesome bikes!

All the best

Hola, el problema que tienes a bajas velocidades se debe a mal estado de los rodamientos de direccion, saludos ¡¡
