Check the cams also the steering bearing. Both is difficult to check
but that were the things I heard. It also has problems with overheating
at the rear cylinders.
Keep in mind that is 15 years old, very very heavy and you will
it while driving. I'm satisfied with Metzeler tires on it. You won't
get any newer tires fitting to the 16" front wheel.
If it runs, it runs great, but very difficult for maintenence.

Bike was starting fine but after about 30 minutes it just sounds like the starter is spinning but not turning the bike over plz help.... 2005 suzuki katana 750

Most starters have a plastic gear on them. You may have some broken gear teeth. This would allow the starter to spin yet not engage the engine flywheel.

Fuel coming bottom exhaust pipe

Check you fuel pipes in between the V. Your bike wouldn't run at all if there was that much fuel going through the exhaust pipe( not for very long anyway!)

Can you bypass the fuel relay and run the fuel pump without it on a honda vf 1ooo f

No, the relay is being used to invert the input signal, so you can not bypass it

I have a VF 1000 R in Australia and wish to ship it to the US, does it meet US EPA regulations and how can I get proof of this

If you look on the exhaust you will see stamped in the muffler information on the noise and emission.
By the way a 1984 bike did not have any EPA issues to adhere to other than noise, which was not enforced very often if at all.

Cam chain tensioners vf 1000

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.
I checked and both tensioners are in stock, $41 and $30. Item #5 and #8
