    Really? Do you just jam some in there and slide the needle in to get the correct shape?

    If this is a viable fix I might just have to give it a go.


    On another note, does anybody have a set of NC30 carbs with little to no wear on the needle jets that they'd be interested in selling?

    Might have a crack at reshaping the needle jets if I can find a replacement set of carbs to use while I tinker. Maybe drill them out and install a nylon sleeve.

    Last attempt before I turn to eBay: Anyone have a set of half decent carbs laying around they'd like to sell?

    Found a set of loose carb bodies locally, swapped out the two problematic ones in the assembly, and now she's running beautifully.

    Hooray!

    Time to tidy up the fairings now. Any leads on where to get a rattle can of Honda Ross White paint?

    Not sure about rattle can, but a decent paint shop might be able to colour match it and give you some. You would need your own paint gun though unless you got homies with one. Either that or they might not charge too much to blast it on some prepped fairings for ya

    Long time no chat, just bought me a bike after a 3 year hiatus (house/child/wedding/moving) got an '07 VTR1000 just a couple days ago. Dropped by previous owner (aren't they always?) So a few scratches and scuffs.

    Awesome! VTR's are such a great balance of comfort, touring ability, fun, and affordability!
    Might see you out and about if you're still around the Waikato.

    Greetings

    Greetings. New member here and just got a gen 8 VFR. I used to have a gen 5 for many years (love it!) before stopped riding for about 10 years. Looking forward to getting more mileage with it !

    Does anybody have a rubber chain slider for an NC30 laying about? The long black rubber bit that lays along the swingarm.

    Mine is half disintegrated and I really should replace it.

    Also interested in any old (non-running is fine) bikes, or bulk bins of NC30 parts that have been sitting around collecting dust.

    I am looking for a full engine rebuild gasket set for a VFR400R NC30 R3K (1989 though I think they're all the same). I have ordered one out of the UK but not sure on ETA. So if anyone in NZ has one, I'm keen to buy it.

    Delkevic muffler

    I have a 4th gen 97 with the stock muffler. I'm thinking of getting a 9 in high mount Delkevic muffler. Does anyone know if they produce a legal sound in NZ? Don't want to cough up for it and find I cant get a WoF!
    Cheers

    Just get a baffle insert for it. Plenty for sale on TardMe.
