Introduced in 1990, the RC36 generation of the VFR was considered by many to be one of the greatest all-around motorcycles of its time. In fact, the RC36 was sold between 1990 and 1997, and it won a “Ten Best” award from Cycle World every single year.
From CW’s 1990 story: “The VFR isn’t the fastest in its displacement category, and it won’t set the quickest lap times around the nearest racecourse. What it will do, with its balance, poise and deftness, is give its rider the best all-around motorcycle in the business.”
This example is engine #: RC36E2406168. We acquired it off of eBay for a potential project that never happened and now we need as much room as we can get – we have containers coming in to build a second story at the shop!
We have no history on the motor, but for the listing we had our service department performed a cylinder leakage test. Their test came back with the following results:
#1 = 9% Rings
#2 = 5% Exhaust valves
#3 = 4% Rings
#4 = 3% Rings
