Hi trabbart..

The vf750f and the cbx750fe used the same fuel filler cap as the vf1000...  There is one tatty cbx750fe cap on eBay at the moment.. you can also get an aftermarket one from Japan/ China brand new for about £15, it doesn't look exactly the same but may do untill an original turns up..
Sales and Wants / Carbs for Sale, First Post!

Hello forum members! First post here for me, but I've been lurking for a while now. I ended up selling my 84VF1000F around Christmas time, and I have leftover parts.

Complete set of carbs for the 84 vf1000F, cleaned, has a DynoJet kit with tapered needles, jetted, and shortened springs. These were used on a bike with stock airbox and aftermarket Cobra F1 slip ons so the jetting is not too radical. The bike actually ran well with bone stock carbs so I left these off of it.

Only one small flaw with them, one of the mixture screw heads had been stripped by the previous owner. I center drilled it and lightly tapped a torx bit into it. That allowed for removal and adjustment of the screw. Nothing is seized or broken, just might want to get a new mix screw if it suits your needs.

Let me know if you're interested, and if not I'll post them up on ebay in a couple weeks and see if they sell there.

I don't know of another fuel cap that fits the VF,If you have a spare on another tank is it unlocked?
If not a good locksmith should be able to help,just remember to press the cap down as it's being unlocked
If your spare is open,unscrew from the tank and the key number is on the underside of the fixing bracket

In the Shed / gascap lock broken, alternative for vf1000
« Last post by trabbart on February 07, 2018, 07:54:51 am »
i have had to drill the lock out, it was getting harder and harder to get it open with the key untill it didnt go at all.
i wonder wat the alternative would be,
i cant find a gas cap for a decent price. vf1000 parts aren't easy to find local or expensive.
does anybody have the part number or knows wat other honda used the same gas cap.
most of them sell all the locks together witch make it more expensive, a gas cap without a key lock would be fine to.
aftermarket part mabye ??
i have another one, sits on a spare tank, but unfortunatly i have no key for that one,  unknown history also. any solution for that?

That is a fair amount of work!

Well done, it looks a cracker now.

Question though, where did you gett he new stator? I suspect mine to be weak on my FF.

I just finished bringing an '86 VF1000R back from the dead. Had been sitting for a few years and was given to me for my birthday. Nice gift! By the next evening it was setting on jack stands and parts spread across the bench. Sent the body work out for total rehab and paintwork. Rebuilt carbs with DynaJet kit, adjusted valves, replaced all cover gaskets & seals. Rebuilt forks, brake calipers and master cylinders, clutch slave and master. New tires, chain and sprockets. New stator and voltage reg and Barnett clutch. Since the Yoshi exhaust was what was on it and nice OEMs are rare, I rebuilt the Yoshi mufflers with new outer cans ordered from an online metal company. Shortened the cans 1" as I thought the originals were a bit long. Converted all lights to LEDs as it definitely saves the charging system. This was a six month process and not counting all the labor I put into it, I have invested nearly 5k into this project. But I enjoy this bike more than any of the others that I own. I'd be happy to help if you need advice or part source info.

Thank you both for your input,I will set up as per the instructions using the 122 jets and fitting a KN filter.
I will let the boys at Dynobike in Malton do the fine tuning.
