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.

2002 Honda VFR 800 need an owners manual


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

2002 Honda VFR 800 ABS runs rough


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Carburetor vacuum diaphragm torn, cracked, not seated or installed improperly.
14. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
15. Fuel filter clogged.
16. Old or contaminated fuel.
17. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
18. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
19. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
20. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
21. Incorrect valve timing.
22. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.
23. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
24. Incompatible performance parts.
25. Control module may be in "LIMP" mode
26. Check for engine trouble codes.
