We have seen a few RVF400Rs recently but here is another one in Mountain View, California. This RVF400R is a track bike conversion having been returned to street use. The seller states:

Tyga-Performance carbon fiber HRC style air box lid
Translogic digital speedometer (speedo, lap timer, temp gauge, gear indicator, oil indicator, fuel gauge, RPM read out etc)

’06 GSXR600 rear shock. Re-sprung (1100# spring) and re-valved by Evolution Suspension.
All suspension set for a ~180# rider and massaged by Dave Moss.

Extra misc parts such as extra set of Tyga-Performance race body (front, belly pan, sides and stock RVF solo seat), VFR and RVF carbs, RVF headlights,
misc body panels and lights, and other RVF400 hardware
Important information regarding operation status:
Currently registered and insured.
The seller also states that the major issue with the bike is that the tank is heavily damaged, it still functions perfectly without leads but is still heavily damaged.
This isn’t an original RVF400R but, it has good accessories and good modifications. If properly set up, the modifications undoubtedly make this an excellent performing RVF. The seller states that this listing is only a feeler and with an asking price of $7,000; it appears a bit high even with the extensive modifications. However, it would be a pleasure to ride this bike around California and if you’re in the market, you just need to put a value on that pleasure. See the bike on Craigslist here.
