1996 Honda RVF400R NC35 California Titled And Registered

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 full RC211 kit (front, belly pan, sides and tail)
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)
NC30 (VFR) carbs
520 sprockets and DID chain
Michelin Power Race and Power One tires (120 and 160)
’06 GSXR600 complete front suspension. This includes powerful dual-piston radial brakes. Fresh Oil and GP piston kit installed by Evolution Suspension.
’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.
Tyga-Peformance rear-sets
Drilled and safety-wired
Key-less ignition system

Extras include:
Single-sided Pitbull swingarm stand
VFR and RVF Haynes manual
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.

1995 Honda RVF400R NC35 Track/Race Bike

How about a RVF400R track bike?  Sure!  Located in Oakland, California is a 1995 Honda RVF400R sold on a bill of sale only.  This bike has been raced in the AFM from 2004 through 2005.  The bike comes fitted with a Penske twin clicker rear shock, HRC velocity stacks, and a Yamamoto Spec-A exhaust–a very sexy shotgun design.  List of work and spares:

Suspension work:
Mar ’04 at Buttonwillow, Racetech added Gold Valves; compression stack CH 34 with a .15 preload.
Oct ’04 – Aftershocks added Racetech .90 springs, seals and 450cc 5wt oil (120 ~ 125mm from the top).

Apr ’05 – Aftershocks serviced shock

GP Frame & Wheel digitized the frame; it needed very little work or straightening.

Motor was gone through – no wear found. All the same, we replaced the following:
New valve springs and stem seals, crankshaft bearings & con-rod bearings, rubber carb boots, all gaskets, piston rings, all engine seals, new oil pump, spark plugs. Less than six race weekends on this motor. OEM parts purchased through GForce – I did the work.

BRG slotted cams installed <sweeet >

Sept ’07 – BRG tuned to run on stock airbox, no air-filter, with Spec-A Yamamoto Racing exhaust.
Has Factory jets, RLR Motorsports (UK) emulsion tubes, HRC velocity stacks.

On BRG’s (unforgiving) MD750 EC dyno with Factory software, it showed 52.3 HP with 91 oct pump gas.
(For comparison, Patrick Ho stated on BARF that a Performance Concepts FZR400 (413 cc) in prod trim typically showed 59 ~ 61 HP on Werkstatt’s EC977 dyno, while BRG’s MD750, (twin roller dyno), would read 10 ~ 12 HP lower.)

Spare parts NEW:

Valve keepers (2)
Brake caliper seals (4 sets) 06451-KV3-406

And some quick history of this particular bike:

I purchased this bike in May 2009. I rode it 5 times before letting it sit in my garage for 6 months.

I recently brought my RVF to BRG Racing in Concord, Ca for service (11/11), being that it was stored for 6 months. The owner KC and mechanics cleaned the carbs, adjusted the valves and put in new spark plugs. The RVF ran better than when I first purchased it.

I have logged a total of 350 miles since my 04/09 purchase. My work consumes me, so I really have no time to ride.

History emailed by previous owner:

It went down at Laguna Seca 5 years ago. Computrak measured and
Straightened(Front forks only…No frame damage) it so it is as good as new (have the receipt from them).
Bodywork is brand new. Tank was replaced after the crash (dented tank
Included along with the track plastic) but over the last 5 years has a few
Marks on it and one small paint chip (which my wife touched up with Subaru
Touch-up paint). The plastic is immaculate (it was all replaced after the
Crash). For a 15 yr old bike I think it’s in fantastic shape.

The asking price is $5,700.  So, the bike has some history, but it does look to get in great condition now.  How does it’s history change it’s current value?  See the bike on Bay Area Riders Forum here.
