Nice I like it. Whats that to the front of the seat on the side of the tank? Petcock?This '86 VF500F was a literal basket case when I got it. Rebuilt almost everything but the engine and tranny. Turned out nicely. The VF engine is much smoother, handles similarly but feels lighter and turns in quicker (sold it to a guy in the neighborhood and rode it recently). The VF has less torque and is massively more difficult to work on and worst of all some parts are unobtanium now. The EX is a worthy replacement and in it's own way has just as much engine character.
