how many of you have had this happen??? I bought my second hand 2001 model VFR800 from Peter Stevens in Melbourne about two weeks ago - great bike, price and service. I then went eBay hunting for bits and found a rear seat cowl and grab rail set - great - as my bike had neither due to a Givi frme and top box plate. I won the gear and arranged postage from the seller, and asked whether he still had an owners manual floating around. So today I get a call from the eBay seller saying 'I think you bought my old bike'. Turns out I did and also turns out that not only does he have the oringinal manual for the bike BUT a spare key as well which he is posting to me. And it turns out my bike is on the Madaz.com.au website under VFR800 wiyh photos of its trick hi rise exhaust. So there you go - the biking world is a small one. How may other stories are there about finding your bike bits from previous owners? Cheers - the maduncle. Never trust a handy gadget whose instrucion manual is heavier than the gadget.
