        @6 : Forging is an expensive manufacturing process that makes parts using high quality dies and heat and 1000s of lbs of pressure to form them. It makes parts very strong -- much stronger than casting, for example.

        Forged parts (almost) always say "FORGED" right on/in them.

        BUT forged also means to be copied fraudulently.

        The bitterness of low quality lingers long after the thrill of a low price has gone. - RacerX450

            Can't tell if that is a genuine CRG mirror. But, why would it be?
            One telltale sign of the knock-off mirrors; glass glued in; not replaceable.
            Can't see that side; mount doesn't look right.
            The fake levers are funny,flip the adjusters and see where it masked the paint.
            I got ASV for my NSR but decided to not use them as they aren't period correct.

              Why do people streetfighter VFR's? Particularly the VTEC's... They're not bikes that look good naked
              Look out, a beer!

                yep...some don't. They are begging for cover; modest and aware that they look better with their clothes on.

                  These are the only ones I have seen that look well done but most streetfighters are trash. I don't know who inspired who or if it was convergent evolution. I don't really care for modern bike styling but they are clean.





                  The 800s are very poorly suited to going nude. The rads and hoses just aren't things people need to see. Maybe someone out there has done an underseat mod like have been done with VTRs,that would help. I still have a cheap VTR for someone who might want to try the build that I won't -lol

                    I believe the street fighter thing comes from stunters taking the bodywork off to mount crash cages and such, sometimes just crashing it off and mounting a headlight. That is where I first saw the "streetfighter" style.

                      They were a thing in Europe well before stunting was popular. The idea of stunting a VFR amuses me though.

                            There was a dude in sav ith a yellow goldwing. He would hang out with the stunters by the airport an hang wheelies on that thing...

                            Maybe you can start a trend... V4Stuntin' sounds like a crew .

                                Looks like he kept it smog legal. Looks like the canister is hanging there and I think I see the pair pipes coming off the front. Maybe environmentalist bike.
