    I don't know either. My vfr fighter is also smaller than my MT09, so it may look like I am riding a kids bike.
    Although the benefit, Nudie, is that you can flat foot anything.
    more titanium than my bike

    Changed my mind about the electrics layout, fits within the confines of the subframe this way.





    Also anyone know a local seller of triple clamps with handlebar risers? (ABM, LSL etc.)

    Realised that my triple clamp is hilariously bent when I took it off to put on new throttle cables. That was definitely the cause of my stiff steering.

    Could have helped you a year ago, but I'm not importing them any more. You could try your luck yourself with "Top Yokes" in the UK, but don't expect anything to happen quickly.

    Or speak to Ben at Extreme Creations or Trav at Hammond Engineering to see if they could make up a triple for you

    As much as I'd love a custom machined triple, I suspect it's a little beyond my financial reach at the moment haha

    What's the front end off? Can just try looking for a stock triple and drilling holes for the risers. That's what I have always done.

    CBR1000rr, yeah that' what I did originally but given how much it warped in the crash I'm thinking that's not such a good idea. I'll probably be running it with clip-ons 90% of the time, would just like the option to stick some high bars on it if I want to do a longer trip.

    That is a good point actually.

    No promises lol

    Project is going on the backburner for a while as I've had some life stuff come up which takes priority for now at least. I'll still update here, just much more slowly.

    Hey fellas, how have you been?

    I've had a busy few months, moved again and bought a new bike



    Then took it around Victoria with my Girlfriend and a tent on the back







    And I finally had a little time to work on the VFR. Got her running again, finished grinding up the subframe and fitted new LSL raised clipons which came with the R1.



    https://streamable.com/6udec

    Still need some welding done on the subframe, need to crimp a new postive battery terminal and get a new top triple clamp.

    I'm also putting together a hydraulic clutch conversion for my R1 cause the stock setup is rubbish.

    Anyway, thanks for reading and hope you all had a merry Christmas and have a great new year!

    Man that looks good. Thanks for sharing again mate.

    That fully loaded R1 set up (tent and missus) must have been hard to keep the front wheel down if you got a but handy with the throttle!

    What Si said, I had the same model R1 and with a bit of weight on the back the front end came up so easily

    I certainly wore the back tire significantly more than the front haha

    Picked up a new exhaust for 100 dollarydoos, even has 2yrs warranty



    Also bought a full VFR400 radiator setup which is otw. Should solve my cooling woes plus I think it looks boss with a set of Samco hoses. Reminds me of the Duc Monster S4R with the Testastretta.

    Finally got around to restoring one of the radiators and test fitting them. Looks good, just need to make some brackets as the engine casting are a bit different between the 400 and 800.



    Sadly it looks like I'll lose the oil cooler. Might switch to a water to oil setup like on my R1 if I can find space for it.

    Longer hoses and mount the oil cooler under the headlight.

    Bosozoku style would be sick, not sure I have enough clearance though. I'll definitely be looking into it.
