    VFR750 -- CSI ... What do I have on my "frankenViffer"

    Well as I am doing a refit. I know find that my forks are not 37mm but 41mm. Which explains why it has ridden well without forkbrace mentioned in other posts.

    But I need seals ... and I would like to know what front-end I have. So I can procure seals and know fork oil volume, brake pads ...etc.

    It has antidive on left fork.
    a SHOWA P/N (sticker) MM5-003
    Black Nissin brakes

    Help me sleuth the characteristics of my crossbred VFR.
    Are All Showa 41mm Forks the same??

    :unsure:

    Some more info and a pic would deffenly help in the CSI prosess.
    Info like front wheel and tire size, has it a speedo pickup or not and a pic and we will give you a better anwser...

    My guess thro is a CBR1000F "hurricane" fork, as it has a antidive, and the 88-89 VFR was not sold in US as it also had a 41mm fork whit antidive.
