First few miles, its a step up in every way (even the weight lol). Better suspension, braking, sound, wind protection, stability, much less vibrations, smoother gearbox.

And I must to say that gear whine is so cool :)

Wow, that VFR looks fabulous. Congrats, and so glad to hear you're not leaving us!
Lot of people say that. For 31 years it looks good, but its better on the pictures cuz there are many small cracks adn scratches on the fairing but its ok for that year. First I would complete service it mechanically next year, then if I have money and will, do the full professional repaint and fixing in the same color. Wont be cheap so I will think about it.

Just 26k in miles. Provided thats accurate, its a youngster, many more to go. Best o' luck with the planned future service & resto mods.

Starts/runs ok? Suggest to get a DVM on the RR leads to confirm sufficient charging and a looksee on its mid-connector for any electrical imperfections.... the achilleas heel of the VFR.

If thats the case, I have plenty of time on that engine which is doing easily 100.000k+ miles.

Yes, it starts and runs fine. Brakes fine etc... Previous owner done the carbs.

For this year, I will probably just change the rear brake pads and nothing else. For the next year Im planning to change the oil, filter, air filter, complete brake caliper rebuild with new seals and pads, clutch springs, brake fluid, spark plugs, maybe new tyres.

Depends on the finances but as the next season goes by, probably fork oil, seals, carb sync and valve check, wheel bearings check. I wanna be sure that everything is in perfect condition as it was on the my EX500.
