Default I0seb's VFR800 Mark 2

Here we go again

SO what's going to be different this time around? First off I want to use consistent bolts across the whole bike as I'm completely sick of switching between hex and allen head.

Secondly, I'm gonna go with keyless ignition purely because the lock mount on my top triple is buggered and I don't want to buy a new one.

Finally I'm gonna try to keep track of $$$ spent, mostly out of interest and to try to keep costs down.

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.



Finally thanks for all the support fellas, it's a seriously great community here

Being stuck at home for a few days with nothing to do has defs boosted my productivity. Gonna be butchering the triple clamp next then getting the powdercoat blasted off for a nice bare alu finish.

I've also been having a think about new seats, I really like the look of the one off the Buell XB12, although the duc monster is also nice. What do you guys think? What's you're fav seat/tail?

Chopped the ignition bracket and went to whack the triple back on the bike at which point I noticed it was massively skewed, one side was easily 5-10mm out of alignment with the other.

But about half an hour with a hammer and mallet later:



Went on alright

My current plan is to mount the dash right between the upper triple and the headlight and mount an anti-vandal switch in one of the bar riser holes to control the keyless ignition circuit.



Also my clutch MC is completely rooted so I'll need to source one of those. Anyone got a spare?

if it's broken, you built it up to be stronger and cooler.

Tank has arrived







Cost me $50 + $40 for shipping and $30 for a locksmith to cut a key for the new cap. It's got a couple minor dings but is in great condition overall and came with a fuel pump which is a nice bonus. Most tanks in Aus are listed for ~ $350 without a pump.

I've ordered a new headlight and all the parts for the keyless ignition, hopefully they will arrive in the next week or so.

Here's the new progress gif:



And the running cost total:
  1. Tank - $120
Total: $120
