    That said I'm still gonna need to respring/valve the forks, shockingly CBR1000rr forks are sprung to heavy for a naked VFR.


    So my laundry list of things to do is:


    - New 330mm discs
    - Make a coolant overflow tank
    - RapidBike tune
    - Suspension setup
    - Paint/cf wrap the damn thing
    Does Cf means Carbon Fibre (imitation) wrap?

    I’m not a fan of anything that pretends to be carbon fibre eh

    Yeah CF means carbon fibre, real stuff though, not vinyl wrap.

    Looks like wheelied over backwards? Also, doesn't look unfixable!

    Given it was -1 pretty sure I hit some ice, lost the rear and accidentally grabbed a handful of throttle. Proceeded to loop the bitch haha.

    It's fixable but subframe is bent so will need to weld up a new one. Have yet to check the forks.

    Arr bugger dude.
    Ladies and Gentelmen, take my advise. "Pull down your pants and slide on the ice."

    Surveyed the damage more thoroughly














    So to summarise:


    - Snapped subframe mount
    - Busted seats
    - Bent subframe
    - Snapped undertray
    - Smashed rear cowl
    - Busted muffler
    - Bent right rearset (although Seb's adaptors held up just fine :thumbsup
    - Bent bars and headlight mounts
    - Cracked headlight
    - Smashed dash
    - Damaged YouTune module
    - Massively dented tank
    - Dented top triple clamp
    - Ignition snapped in half


    Pretty sure that about covers it, fingers crossed nothing else makes itself known.

    How about you? How'd you shape up?

  12. #132
    I'm fine, very gracefully ejected and landed on my ass

    Won't be leaving home for a few days while I heal but that'll just give me time to figure out what I'm gonna do with the bike.

    Same, can't exactly weld in my apartment car port so I've just used metal putty to get it back on for the moment. With any luck I'll be moving to a house in a month or two so will be able to pick up a welder and fix it properly.

    That said, allegedly the putty is rated up to 200kg/cm^2 of tensile force so might hold up alright.

    Created a new thread over on Custom Fighters but figure I'll keep it all in one here for posterity.

    This post marks the beginning of my VFR800 mark 2 (i.e. unfucking my shit)


    So here's the bike as she sits







    To get the ball rolling I whipped up some quick and dirty headlight mounts using some spare aluminium and what was left of the headlight bucket for sizing.








    And after some angle grinding and hand filing





    Finally got round to cutting off the fairing stay tabs which let me mount the headlight nice and tight to the frame.





    Just need to clean up the finish of the brackets with some sand paper but can't get over to the hardware store till my new helmet arrives #BikeOnlyLife


    Gonna be making a running gif of the build so at the end I'll have a nice time lapse of all the parts going on.





    And thanks for all the support fellas, you're a great bunch of blokes. Cheers!
