Nice bike, had one for a good few years. Not the most fun machine on 2 wheels, but a good solid all rounder. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that model is fuel injected. I have the older 750 (carbed) model and they are a bullet proof machine, apart from usual honda reg/ rectifier issues. Keep this one for a while, it will grow on ya...

Great bikes. I had a older 750 and apart from regulator rectifier it was most reliable bike i ever had.
Yes they are bit heavy and lack power by today's standard but that V4 engine is just great.
Im sure that Ill buy one again one day....

They do what they are designed to do exceptionally. I had one a few years back and wish I had it now. A boring bike in some regards but they can move in the right hands, nicely sprung for Irish roads, no vtec or cam chain bolloxoligy....alot to like about them

i have to say, honda really have put thoughts in there bikes like this when it comes to diy servicing, only saying as taking the wheel off is a 2 second job and the 1 pad pin 2 swap your pads in under 5mins

Even changing the plugs is quick on the vfr compared to a 929 blade for example, there a good reliable bike

You're on the money, the 800 models are fuel injected, seller told me it's a carburated bike "half choke when starting on cold mornings etc" and all that jazz I'm guessing what he's referring to as a "choke" is probably an idle controller like the K2 Gixxers?

Only did a quick hours blast before work yesterday the V4 is such a soulful engine, characteristics of a Vtwin and IL4 combined very linear power delivery. Redline is not all that exciting it feels fairly out of breath but the midrange is a delight
