    hooligans vfr 800

    It's been a while since i've had a build thread. I had a speed triple, which was awesome, but not quite perfect to commute on, and also nothing i wanted to modify on it. my wonderful wife suggested i sell it and get a project.I bought a supermoto to commute on, and, when no one wanted to buy the triple, I traded it at a dealer for a 2000 model vfr 800 in seemingly good condition (all original body work with only a few scratches)and 150000ks. they got the triple, and i got the vfr and a big cheque. And about 3 months worth of headaches as i had to force the dealer to replace the reg rec, stator and throttle position sensor until the vfr was working right.
    Anyway, this is whats now in the shed. Please ignore the dodgy as fuck headlight setup, ii took off the fairing, but didn't have time to sort the acewell, and needed the speedo to work so i can ride it to the welder's to get the subframe on.









    so far I've got a headlight (mofo) an 05 gsxr 600 front end and acewell (watto), delkevic stainless headers (internet), pc3 usb (birthday), ninja 250 seat and subframe (large)and a ducati 848 cast marchesini front wheel (which means i can use the rotors exben made for my carro's), and a forged 1098s rear wheel (rockhard).
    I've also got a scorpion can for a gladius fitted, which makes the vfr sound fucking cool.

    I'm hoping to have something resembling a fighter for nfr, and i'm pretty excited to be getting stuck in again.

    Wow, those tail lines seem to work great with the tank mate. Looks like you'll be needing a custom VCM seat to fill the gaps between the tank and tail hey?

    no actually. When i bought the seat and subframe, Large gave me the plastic infill panels that come stock with the baby ninja, which means i can cut them down and it will look factory. kinda. The 250 seat gives a lot of air between the wheel and the seat which looks good, and is about 150mm shorter than the stock vfr seat (also a massive plus), and sits about 25mm higher than the stock seat, so it'll give me a bit more leg room.

    so, the back end is on.
    I had Harley from RB racing cut the tabs off the original subframe and weld them on the ninja 250 seat. The bottom rail lines up nicely, and the top one is a bit higher than the original mount. The black side panels from the ninja cover the gap between the seat/frame and tank nicely.

    Front end is on, too. Again, i had Harley fit it. When i was surfing the net to find out what front ends would fit, it all centred around the 929/954/sp1 triples and then whatever forks. With the 04 gsxr 600 front end, the bottom bearings are the same, and Harley used a yamaha srx 400 top bearing, but had to take 1mm off the inner race to make it fit, but it meant that he didn't have to press the steel vfr stem into the aluminium gsxr bottom yoke. He also made the spaces needed to fit the 848 wheel with the ex creations front discs.

    With all the welding and machining done, it's on to wiring the acewell, and moving a shitload (about 500mm) of extra wiring under the tank and into the new seat.





    And this is where the acewell should sit when I'm done.



    I pulled unravelled the front half of the harness this afternoon, and with my brother's help, managed to figure out the best way to route the mess, and fingers crossed, i don't fuck it up too much.
