Assessment occasion motorcycle: VFR 800 VTEC

Initials VFR evoke for motorcyclists a label of reference of the sport-GT. Honda VFR preceded segment and still occupies it to its versatility and its reliability. As many which deserve to be delayed on the 800 on occasion!

Really Reliable

A long time one of the rare motorcycles motorized by V4, the Honda VFR 800 remains still today the reference for many motorcyclists. recent the VFR 1200 did not put at evil statute, because qualities of and reliability of that which for all the “very short” VFR remain

Even recent the VFR 1200 did not put at this state of affairs, qualities of versatility and reliability of which remains for most the “very short” VFR remain

Other motorcycles, at Honda or brands are shown more others still are more GT, but the subtle balance which the extraordinary versatility of the VFR since the class except for production year of exit of the first the Honda VFR750F.

After 14 years of reign in cubic capacity and two principal of V4 750 (RC24 in 1986, RC24II in RC36 in 1990 and finally in 1994), Honda presents at the end of the Honda VFR 800 FI (RC46). At the end of 2001 then the version 800 VTEC (RC46II). In 2010, the world leaves V4 1200 on the VFR 1200 and one year Crossrunner later, by V4 800 re-examined and corrected for a program trail.

Finally in 2012, takes again the motorization V4.

But let us return to our “anti-sheep”! Because a sheep stupidly follows the the VFR is an initiator of a kind which very difficult to imitate, speaking of equalizing it.

Today to take the handlebar of a Honda VFR 800 2002 – quasi unchanged! – is to fully, and very a long thanks to an almost irreproachable of a motorcycle which joins qualities of sportsmanship and facility of that no other machine to date.

Points to control on Honda VFR 800

The VFR wins unanimous support on its Not touched by the tuning or the stunt, it a justified dimension!


The by Honda of the indestructible distribution by of pinions – the trademark of the VFR since – on the VTEC caused some moreover partially justified. the only flat to be poured in the of VFR VTEC is a weakness of the tension of distribution, but only during a town use including low frequent

The adjustment of the game to the valves Euros the revision of the 24,000 180 Euros that of the 18,000, the being due to this famous is thus a requirement to be respected, in for the townsmen. One of deduced that the rustles mechanical must a mistrust particular to the purchase, like the least suspect And without rational explanation on of the salesman, only one solution: another!


One listed only one concern on the level transmission: the of the shoe which protects it monograms chain. From km, this shoe can prove too to make its office and one then to file will monograms it on the of his axis, side pinion. that it would be damage: if piece!

Part cycles

The loop was the object of a recall on the a 2002, but if not great deal to be except the general state of the Note that it is hardly put U (specific) under the saddle, often.

The bearings are prone to a wear, which they are of direction like those of Check that the direction is free: motorcycle on the central take along of a finger the on one side to the other. No resistance be felt.

Side bearings of wheel, it is for the back but more delicate to for before: it is necessary to check the of side game while play the raised wheel two hands, one in top, and one in bottom. It is necessary to check the absence of point or slapping, while gently turn the wheel having left the clamps


The regulator, even if it changed for the VTEC, remains It proves particularly sensitive to therefore especially of town use and in hot

Indeed, the motorcycle with mode does not take its on the alternator but on the battery, which requests the regulator: no the miracle if you roll downtown much, for maintaining your battery in top with a standard charger

Another problem which nothing but amplify the potential for regulator via an insufficient refill of the the alternator misses a little over the years of before in particular.

Body and completions

side body, whose and varnish always were of on the VFR. As on all the motorcycles equipped an integral careen-age, check its parts which can suffer rise-descents of pavements.

For the very large “anglers”, the can end up rubbing: to check, but it is unusual at the weights (very) heavy. only one solution if prestressing not enough to solve the problem: to compound-shock absorber!

The nut of side can tend to be loosened: to check because the rebound of the crutch in a – or worse, a leg – can cause large A replacement of the nut of origin by a Nylstop be welcome…

As often, the passages of are to be checked: they can cause a wear, especially if they badly replaced after

In short

The main part of the problems comes from a town use. On the VFR, the and the load circuit do not appreciate this program of use. The VFR is a whole road motorcycle!
