My '99 VFR 800
UPDATE: March, '01

Over the past few weeks, in anticipation of the beginning of riding season, I have been keeping
busy working on the 800. I wanted to do a few cosmetic mods to set it apart from all the other
plain red 800s out there. To that end, I had the front fender painted metallic black, and then
painted the side mounted radiators black. The rear wheel was replaced with a 90-93 vfr rear
wheel which has a much nicer 8-spoke pattern. The wheels were also powdercoated Silver.
The front wheel bearings and seals were replaced just because. At around 30 bucks for the
whole shot, I figured it was cheap insurance. The evil enemy rust was creeping in on
my exhaust heat shield, so I had it nickel plated in a satin finish to add some sparkle.
Helibars were installed to add to the already stellar comfort of the vfr.
A Sargent seat and an MCcruise electronic cruise control unit have
also found their way onto the "GL800RR".
And after the wheel treatment.
Big improvement, no?

And after. Also note the nickel
plated heat shield and black rads.

Front fender detail. I think the fender
and the rads tie together the seat and
bra into one continuous swath of
black, thereby breaking up the vast
expanse of the red fairing lowers.
Closeup of wheel/pipe. I think the
8-spoke looks much more elegant
than the original 5-spoke design.
And the silver is to die for.

windscreen and Ventura sport rack.

Won't stay clean for long!
To your left are a couple of shots
that show the bigger oil cooler
I installed. It has helped to reduce operating temps to a certain degree.

This one is a pretty good
illustration of my custom tag and
the "fenderectomy" I performed.
Hacking off that enormous rear
fender did wonders to clean up
the lines of the bike.
Total cost-Zero!
