Hi.

You don't have to call me sir my parents weren't married when I was born.

Yes the bike is stock except for pipes windshield and jetting, I just got it as an early b-day present so maybe a half dozen rides in so far. The pipes are loud enough to irk HD riders.. highly recommended.

Sounds fun... Enjoy the bike for a bit, observe what you like and want to leave as is or improve, what you dislike and want to change and then consider the few reliability mods done commonly and see if they feel right for you.

Bit of googling VTR1000F regulator failure should bring up some info to help you decide.
Likewise VTR1000F CCT failure

And then you can have some fun and do stuff no one needs, but many want...click the links in my signature

Thanks all, I did peruse the forum before buying the bike so I understand that CCT and RR replacement are good ideas. I have also made it through all 56 pages of your performance mods section. My VTR needs suspension and brake upgrades so they will come after CCT/RR replacement and some Avon Azaros as my tires are old. Good times.

I have sources for all that is needed for the RR mod if your going to do it your self...All good US places to order from.

If you dont have the special cable terminal tools needed or the bulk supplies, I have offered a kit pre terminated, customized to the VTR https://www.superhawkforum.com/forums/classifieds-32/ vice the once size fits none kits out there

No skinnier, cuz after the POS diode based OEM RR one fails you will be pushing your bike everywhere,, great work out, but kind of hard to pick up chicks that way.

Ok kids I have a thoughtful Mosfet RR kit and a fine Sargent seat on the way thanks to E.Marquez and CaryDG. Also ordered a set of APE MCCT's with gaskets. It will be nice not having to wear the ruby slippers to ward off evil, I miss my Diadoras.

Hello gentle reader. I have ridden the bike and found it to be too soft and too fat so the goal of a wholesale front end suspension and brake swap from an F4i is a VTR with a stronger, more planted front end that has the brakes and suspension to complement the VTRs engine and frame. I have been riding for about 47 years, started out on the street with a 1983 CB1100F, also had a 1993 and a 1994 CBR1000F a 1986 VF1000R and a 1986 BMW R65 monoshock monolever. This VTR is my last sportbike, when I cannot ride it any more I will hang up my boots but until then I and the bike are going to have some fun. If it makes you feel any better I am also spending another G on a new FIELDSHEER suit and gloves to go with my new helmet and boots. Have a picture.

The wheels, by the way, are ASAHI TEC not ENKEI. Me likey and they should drop a few pounds...the goal was to drop 35 pounds total and make the bike dance as if life were just a KC and the Sunshine Band soundtrack. Have another picture, and some KC and the Sunshine Band.... https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...8&&FORM=VRDGAR My older brother on his 1984 FJ1100 and my CB1100F, we rode to Mt Baker that day. Long time ago, must do it again. These days he rides a 2009 Kawasaki ZX10R so I am still last.
