Description

Additional photos of this 1986 Honda VF1000R are available here for your perusal.

When it was released, the VF1000R was a bit of a revelation: it was Honda’s flagship, designed to showcase what the Japanese firm was capable of.

It was also a huge tease to US riders, because it was initially only released in Europe only – America got the VF1000F instead, which was designed to be more of a touring bike.

The R was Honda’s first road bike to benefit from gear-driven cams.

This example is VIN: JH2SC1618GM100301, Engine #: SC16E2200890.

The odometer shows 7,943 miles.

Maintenance: 
In preparation for the listing, the seller had us flush the coolant, flush the front and rear brake fluid, clean/sync the carbs (including replacement of one pilot jet), install a battery, send the windshield out for polishing, replace the turn signal relay, install a new chain, install EBC front brake pads, install YSS rear shocks, replace the fuel pump, and detail the bike. Alex did the work, he notes that brake pads are at 100%/80% front/rear. He also verified that the coolant, oil, lights, killswitch, and horn are OK.

We also installed new tires (Bridgestone BT46 and Michelin Pilot tires with date codes of 4320 and 1220.

Alex notes that one of the bolts for the rear seat cowl is stripped.

Modifications:
Yoshimura dual exhaust.
