Hi all, Through an unusual set of circumstances, a 1993 VFR750 has made itself available to me through a deceased estate. What's really unusual is the fact that it has done less than 12,000km and is damn near immaculate. I had intended to run the wheels off the K100RS (expecting another 3-4 years more use), and then spoil myself with something nice. However, this VFR is one of the lowest mileage VFRs I have ever seen and seriously has me tempted. Whatever I have, it will always be a commuter / tourer / weekend bike - work for which both are ideal. I rode it yesterday and found it tight as a drum. It has the original tyres on it (stuffed), and has been looked after by a "gentleman" rider. The ONLY mechanical thing that has me concerned is that the gearbox felt very stiff and clunky. The K box has its vices, but I was staggered by how stiff and wooden the VFR felt to shift. Is this something other VFR owners have experienced? I don't know how long it's been since an oil change, so that could well have a fair bit to do with it. Is it likely that it still has not really had enough use? I've been digging through the reviews I can find online, and there are plenty of reports of stiff Honda boxes on early '90s road bikes. In terms of ride position, it's less roomy than the K, and the handling at low speed is less confident. It's near 50kg lighter, and feels considerably smaller. But even at my height (198cm) I think I'd be happy in the longer rides. How do VFRs go in terms of carrying large amounts of gear? Thanks in advance. Got some serious thinking to do!
