      That's how we did it.

        No, the bore in the center of the VFR wheels is not the same as the bore of the spindle on the cush side.

          An added benefit of the Ducati spindle, especially if you no longer have access to your center stand because of an aftermarket exhaust. But I think swapping rear sprockets and checking/replacing cush drive rubbers are the only things you can do with the bike lifted from the wheel side that you can't do with it lifted from the sprocket side. So unless you track, that's not needed too often.

            Either 4 lbs or 3lbs 12 oz, according to this thread:

              I just use a light hand/finger on the handlebar to balance the bike once I get it on there and I just weigh one end of the bike at a time. I used to have a buddy that had an in ground freight scale and I would just ride up and push the bike in and weigh it real quick but until I break down and get a second bathroom scale I just stick to weighing one end of the bike at a time and its usually pretty accurate.

                Somewhere around 1700 grams on my scale (from my notes), including drive pins (which weigh about 60 grams for the 4 pins/bolts). A spindle slotted for 100mm/85mm pins comes out to about 1660 grams. In this photo there is still a few grams of protective tape/rubber on the spindle...I can get final weights later.

                    Nice! I've seen brake rotors trimmed for weight and it seems like a fairly straight forward approach. Safer than the Swiss Cheese method, at least for an amateur such as myself.

                        Started too late on this ... past 2 weeks have been hardwood floors and carpeting .... here it is ... the last day before HOTM deadline! Santa brought an aluminum radiator ... already had the hoses & clamps ... old rubber showed cracking at the clamps ... hope this gets done to shoot some pretty pics for JAS to post ...

                        Dropping the horn to be hidden by the chin spoiler ... replacing hoses are the problem, actually, its getting at the clamps all pointed in the wrong directions.

                              Looks great. I need to get my new hoses on also...along with about 100 other things. Need to figure out a carb problem first though (I think) when I can find the time. Been too darn busy and its been too darn cold to even work on the bike this winter.
