Yes it will wear the engine more but were talking taking the engine life down form 150,000 miles down to 130,000 miles .... so in all honesty , no it dont matter
Just 750's but there was some 11'sThe 11 was a big barge anyway.the 400 and 500 are nice littlw bikes, a bit complex but small and neat handling and go good.Kev
You have first hand experience of 14k redline bike engines lasting 150,000 miles do you???

there were 5 displacements of VFs, the rest are VFRs I thinkVF500 (Magna and Interceptor models)
weve had the Honda VF debate loads of times.Basically all 750's should be used as shipping anchors, the 400 and 500 are nice little bikes with a good turn of speed, nippy handling, but a bit of a pig to work on. The 1100/1000 are big barges and pretty irelevent when CBR's and big Kaws are cheaper and better, theres nothing really wrong with em and Some people even like em.Kev
The 500s aren't that bad to work on. The clutch is brutal if you fuck up a downshift though. We never got the 400.You see tons of 750s around with 60k+ KM. Complete shiteMe an my dad can get the carbs on a VF500 in about 10 minutes. Took us longer to get them back onto a fucking GS550.
KTM 2 stroke stuff / XR650R stuff. Stiffy's house of bling
The 500s did NOT have camshaft problems. A few early ones had crankshaft problems which was repaired free by Honda.The 750 had camshaft problems. There is a company in the US that markets a kit which supplies more oil to the cams than the stocker did.
