Today marks the day I really got to experience my VFR for the first time. And I like it! Backstory: I was browsing for bikes a few weeks ago and did a search for VFR's, as I've always liked them after following billmaa's (RIP) Youtube channel many years ago. So, this nice looking 1992 VFR with a full set of panniers shows up for a good price. It was a three-hour drive away, but the ad said that the bike was in nice condition and never been dropped, so it seemed worth it to go check it out. I arrived to find a VFR that was in showroom condition. Totally unmolested. I was stunned, as I actually couldn't find any dings or scratches, and externally everything seemed perfect. It was hard to believe that this was a 27-year old bike. The seat had been reupholstered at some point and was in excellent shape. Mechanically it looked and sounded very good, too. It started up instantly and made all the right sounds but none of the wrong ones. Tires had lots of tread on them, but the Battlax on the front was from 09 and the Pilot Road 2 on the rear was from 07, so the bike had been likely tucked away in a garage for most of the past ten years. Test drive was a bit of a mixed bag. While the bike idled nicely, it sputtered and jerked at low revs, but then it cleaned out and pulled nicely to the redline at full throttle. I couldn't find anything else wrong with it, so I made an offer and ended up getting the bike. I changed the clutch fluid and started looking into the sputtering problem. The air filter was basically unused, so I turned my attention to the carbs. I put mixed some injector/carb cleaner in the fuel, but that didn't seem to make a difference. So today I decided to reset the pilot screws on the carbs before I pull them out for cleaning. The pilot screws seemed to be out a bit further than the 1-7/8 turns called for in the manual, and I suspected that the jerkiness was caused by too rich of a mixture, as it really didn't need choke to start, and the jerkiness grew worse as the bike warmed up. I went for a quick ride after resetting the pilot screws, and the jerkiness was gone. Bike now pulled cleanly from low revs, and I was ecstatic. Came back and planned to go for a longer stint, but I decided to check the tire pressures first, and they were way down, so I added air and took off for a ride. It was perfect. The bike is relaxed and docile in the midrange - just what I like. The handling sharpened up with the correct tire pressures. I still need to sync the carbs and do a proper carb tune, but I can already see that this is going to be a long-time keeper. I hope to get many more miles (or km's) out of her!
