    VFR400R NC30 racebike - FAULTY

    I am done with this - lost interest. You should assume the motor will need a full rebuild. If I was doing it I would take it out to 444cc because they go quite well and are reliable at that.

    The chassis and running gear (even the tyres!) are good, its still a road bike with electric start (and Shorai battery...) but the motor is dorked. All four cylinders have low compression (round 50psi) - best case scenario is heads off and refresh, worst case is full motor rebuild. There has never been metal in the oil and even with low compression it did run so there's that.

    What you are buying is the RVF400 NC35 17 inch rear wheel, the Ohlins shock, and the beautifully rebuilt and resprung front forks. All the rest of that stuff is attached to it to make it easier to roll around. It also comes with some spares - no motor parts but some airbox and stuff like that. Just had the carbs ultrasonically cleaned and new carb kits installed and a new rear tyre. The front is not overly used but is quite old now

    Let me know what you want pictures of and I will add them. Edit: fucks sake: pay me $200k if you like but I would be easily swayed by $2000.

    It looks nicer in the photos - it is due a repaint but like I say, I've lost interest
