Vtr sorted

Post by jasonbrownett » Fri May 11, 2018 10:22 pm

Well my vtr is pretty much sorted, new penske rear shock matches the the blade forks perfectly it's like a different bike the handling is fantastic. Also fitted lightened flywheel and that's made a pretty big difference to feels like a all out sports bike nowImage have a blade six spoke rear wheel and vfr six spoke front coming so will fit them once funds allow for wheels to be resprayed thinking similar blue to the aprillia factory wheels? Having more fun on this bike than any other I've had, love itImageImageImageImageImageImage

Nice to see you on the forum jason instead of just Facef8ck

Nice bike.

VFR front? Bit of messing with that. I know fabio (rob) sorted your flywheel so nice you are happy with it. The man makes no money at it but loves it. I make money providing the flywheels 😂
What are we at now Rob 6 from me?

Nice front end mate. Have the same myself. Just need to get renthal bars on as my back is f@@$ed

Nice clean looking bike that with some trick bits. What cans are they? Those Fabbri screens are good too. One of the best fitting screens them. The mirror studs line up perfectly with the holes and the screen sits pefeclty inline with the headlight surround. I like what's been done to the standard rearsets there too.

Yeh makes a change from bookface mate, the first vfr front wheel which had floating discs is a straight fit on my 96 blade forks as fireblade riders use them to replace 16inch front. Rob is a great bloke very knowledgeable and helpful Image
