I have a Canon sx40hs, which is a 10 meg.  I have tried another picture. Can't believe it, it has worked. I will now try some more

For some reason, no matter how I try, no pictures will upload, just end up with a white screen.

Well after having the bike half dismantled for 4 years, it is having a good going over. One of the fork seals was leaking very badly and the float bowls was leak now and then. I come across a very low mileage (13.000) silver VTR1000 just up the road from me 4 years ago, so that was the toy for a will. Made my own exhaust for it and a brought a new Pyramid belly pan and looks a treat. I than come a cross a 12,500 mileage VFR800 vtec. And as I had a VF750 for 9 years I just had to have it for the V4 sound. I did quit a lot of work on it including make my own exhaust from the cat on. I have managed to get 28 pound of the bike, and is a sweat ride. In the process of making the modification, I have made parts to sell on eBay, which sell very well. Back to the CBR750. I have not had good health for 30 years, so getting on with it was slow to say the least. Well I had an operation in late January, and now am a new man ( though I am sure it will only lass a few months). I did manage the get the fork seals done last year. But in the lass 3 weeks it has been taken down that just a rolling chassis. Rear sub frame resprayed, exhaust welded were there was a couple of pin holes, and now repainted. The hole bike has has a tooth brush clean. All the Ally foot pegs polished along with the exhaust can. Most of the plastic is not on yet and still in the loft, but I though I would upload some pictures of the bike. I was hoping to have it on the road in a few weeks, but thing are looking very bleak in the would and in the UK, and not permitted to go out riding. The only thing I need is  left hand mirror. I did buy one in 2001 one for it, but broke it the day after fitting it. smile1004mad It is the only mirror I have ever broken.

Hi, sorry, I did not notice your reply last year. Been have health  problems, which is much better after having a opp in Jan this year.. They have all been sorted and the drawings are incorrect in that they show the floating valve the wrong way round. Al I know is that the forks work better that they have ever done in the past. Have been working on it for that last 3 weeks in-between decorating the house and digging the vegetable garden. Pictures soon on a fresh topic. :tanzen002:

Thanks for all your hard work in keeping the site working and for it in the 1st place. Not many of us left with the bike. Mine is going through an overhaul, and should be finished in a few weeks.  Got a couple of pin holes in the exhaust collector, but not being able to freely travel about, that will have to wait. Will put new pick of it once done. smile1004up

Hi, my friend is going to sell his soon due to medical reasons. It is low mileage, and there is a picture on here somewhere along with my bike-which I have no intention of selling and has even less mileage on it.

Welcome :dance: Bit of work to do with the plastic, but you have a good exhaust.

Thanks for the picture on the parts.  smile1004yesh Sorted now with forks back together.  It's been standing with no forks, exhaust or any plastic. So thought I would see if it would start ( not been started for about 10 months),  and just a few second on the button see fired up nice a sweat (loud), and that is with 3 year old petrol ( Shell V). So see will have a tooth brash clean, then be put back to gather. Will upload pictures once she's done. smilebikebigrace

Thanks for your scan robvangulik. With it I new what should be in there and were. All sorted now. It was the this flat washer that was missing which sit's in between the spring washers.

The 1000 legs are a little different, but now I know that I have all the parts apart from 1 thin washer, which might or might not of been there from new. The Ally cone piece it part of the oil restriction and can be bored to different sizes depending on what bike it is in. It is so the other parts can be standard to many bike. The spring washers are there to make sure it is seated to the bottom on the leg. So sorted and all is well.

Thanks for that.  I did check the 1000 as well on Ling Honda. Mine is the 199 modal so should be the same as this one
Number 19 is the wrong way up, so I am happy with that leg. I have stripped down the anti dive leg and will try to work it out from there.  Sham I can't ask my mate as he has had 5 of the bikes and don loads of seals on them. The springs ( number 12 in the link) are inside the legs and are in there, so I have sussed that out. So I think I have 1 flat washer missing as I have the 2 shaped spring washers.  Thanks for you help. :25:

An update. the 1987 and 1988 VFR internals are different to each other, which does not help. So 10, 9 & 6 are different in my legs. I have no number 12 in either leg (springs). Number 19 is shown the wrong way up.

Thanks for that, the same as the VFR750. Problems: item number 15 and 28 are incorrect in the drawing as they are the wrong way up as it would be imposable for them to be thet way round as in the picture as the bolts would not reach.  N0 5 and 6 (3 parts) I only have 2 parts. I don't have number 8 in any of the legs and I am the only one that has ever taken them apart. So I am very lost now. :headbang:

Hi, thanks. I am on to many forums to keep track. Can I ask you a question please.  I have been thinking through the night that I might of mist or lost a part of one of the fork legs, so should there be a spring at the bottom of the leg with the floating valve? I can't find a picture, though I am sure I have seen one on here before. I would ask my friend that has a Hurricane, but 2 1/2 weeks ago he fell of a shed roof and was in a coma for a day and has coup contrecoup injuries. I have not put the oil in them yet.  Any help would be appreciated.
