Question about 2000 Honda VFR 800

1 Answer

Can an 02 or Later VFR Interceptor be Upgraded to ABS?

There is a nice VFR for sale locally, 2002... but she is not an ABS machine... I have been looking for awhile for an ABS model, but they are usually over my price range. This VFR I can afford, and my idea is to shop for parts on ebay and elsewhere and to an ABS upgrade. Does the ABS model have different wheels which enable the ABS sensor/laser to read them? Is there a seperate computer unit that drives the ABS system? Does the ABS equipt version have an extra (or different) master cylinders? Anyone know of anyone that has upgraded an a non ABS VFR to an ABS who might share experiences? Thanks, integrity19 at gmail dot com.

Under hood parts, electrical harness and the control module wiring most likely is not present in the non ABS model

SOURCE: Does the 2000 Honda Interceptor VFR 800F1 have an ABS option?

No ABS option for the 2000. Honda started offering ABS on the 02 interceptor. I have heard of peeps retrofitting ABS onto non ABS models (buying parts on ebay, etc), but only 2002 and later models. It is theoretically possible to put ABS on any bike, but if the mfg did not set up the bike for it, it would be prohibitively expensive, technically challenging and possibly unsafe. Get yourself an 02 or later interceptor and you will be happy. Note that in addition to ABS, the later model VFRs have linked braking systems, which cross spread the brake load 80/20... It takes some getting used to, but once you do the combination of ABS and linked is the best stopping on any motorcycle ever made, thanks to the genious of Honda. Good luck... If you got more questions, shoot me an email integrity19 at gmail dot com. BTW, the 919 is a blast of a bike. Yes, forks on the 02-04 models where of the mushy non-adjustable showa type and NO ABS option (why not honda?), but she is a beauty to look at and a pleasure to ride hard or soft. This 919 is my 20th motorcycle in 30+ years, my next one will be a VFR, hopefully with ABS.

How can I take a toothpick that i dropped inside my motorcycle engine, how can i get it out? i have a 2003 750 honda shadow.


If you dropped it into the combustion chamber, then the next time that you start the engine, the spark-plug will light the fuel in the cylinder, and harmlessly burn-up that small sliver of wood.
