Bags

Thanks man!

Mine looks identical to your, sept your looks MUCH shinier, and by the looks of things, some tool in a cage didn't back in to the left side of the bike while it was parked and crack the fairing.

got the black tank bra and all. Was thinking of getting a tinted shield as well. Very nice rack and bags! Thanks for the insight and recommendation.

anyone interested in a set of GIVI side racks (also gives you a top rack) for a 4th gen before it goes to eBay?

I also have a 4th gen monorack for just a top case.

Don't have the bike anymore, never even mounted the monorack so it's still in the box.

Great looking bike SnoPro!
Paint your radiator black and it will tie in with your seat and wont clash with the silver of the bike as much.
Very nice example of a very nice bike

Here is a '04 I just picked up. 7000+ miles with ABS, I added the bags and bought a white seat cowl.
Painted the cowl with black plasti-dip to match. Now I might paint the radiator black, good idea rat110!!

I had to go check, it sure looked like it. Nope it has arrow pointing the right way.
It is a Shinko, I already have replacement ready to mount. Handle bars shake back and forth when I take my hands off the bars. If the new tire won't fix that I will look into a stabilizer.

The VFR doesn`t need a stabilizer ... So go ahead checking the tire and chassis adjustment ; -)

Where's that barn, exactly???

Hey, Dunkel- is that last pic near Moodesto? I think I may have been in that spot during the Amgen Tour of CA a few years ago.

All VFRs have adjustable rear preload...fully loaded cases better not be weighing more than a passenger, and the preload on my 95 adjusts for a 140lb pillion just fine.
