No good asking 'John' about that bike, Jake. I bought it about 2 years ago. Mint bike and only just turned over 10,000 miles.:grin2:John one of best bikes Honda ever made.Does that bike have gear driven cams? If it has a cam chain make sure its good condition as Honda V4s of that time had issues with bad timing chains .
Yes, it is the 'gear driven' cam model, in fact the second model (RF) of the V4 1000R. The first, the RE of 1984 was siad to have suffered oil feed problems to the heads and the bike consequently earnt the reputation of having 'chocolate camshafts'.
Pic of it after I removed the surplus 'decorator items'.:wink2:
