I didn't have to remove the engine to put on an aftermarket exhaust on my Magna. I do agree that it is a ***** to do simple maintenance on though.

The Sabre was an '84. As I recall I had to take off the radiator, tank, seat, coils and airbox to get to the valves. It was more work than my R and K100's but not too bad.

I did the valves on the Bandit which are screw and locknut, but I paid for the VFR and so far I've paid for the Triumph because it's in warrenty, I checked the readings between the 600, 10k and 20k valve checks and they've stayed close enough to be negligable so I'll probably just check them myself for the 30k and so on.

Did you find another trans. for the Magna, or are you going to use it for target practice?

You could get a fake uniform and ticket book and pull over hot chicks and tell them if they unbutton their blouse you'll let them off.



Honda could sell a million of 'em!

There are a lot of nice standards out there that have decent ergos and good performance. I am in the same situatiion as you (+ short legs) and I got a 1200 Bandit and added some Holeshot eng. Corbin, progressive stuff. Now I have a pretty peppy comfortable ride.

So when will Honda bring the VFR and the CBR 1100 (do they still make them?) into the current century? Both of these bikes need a displacement infusion.

...What, those things put out around 55 hp, right? Around 250 lbs wet.



Successor to the mighty CR500R?

What I can't figure out is why someone would buy a 919 when a new FZ1 can be bought where I live for only about two hundred bucks more.

It's a 5Kdollar plus 250 c.c. scooter which according to Honda weighs 363 pounds. No need to flip the passenger seat up to be able to bring home the bacon because it evidently already IS the bacon.

Honda is becoming the Buick of motorcycling.
