Side Markers

OK, let's be honest with each other, the round reflectors on the forks and mud flap, they came off your Huffy.  There is just no need for that, hey... hey, take those playing cards out of the spokes and listen up or you are getting a timeout.  Here is what you can to do.  On the back of the VFR's mud flap below the license plate, at the bottom, there is a reflector, which you need to order two.  Take a look at the red reflector, it has a post for the bolt and a second plastic post to hold the reflector in position and prevent spinning.  Now take off the round reflectors, put the new reflector's bolt post through the hole and move the reflector so the plastic "stop" post is against the top of the metal bracket and reuse the nut from the round reflector.  Now for the front, you need to order two yellow front reflectors off of a 2003 CBR1100XX, they are the same as the rear ones in every way, but yellow.  When you remove your front round reflectors you will notice that the reflector bracket has two holes, one for the bolt and one for the "stop" post.  The VFR's front reflector brackets were designed for these rectangular reflectors.  One last touch, when you take off the round reflectors on the mud flap you will expose two silver rivets for the reflector bracket.  Take some fine grit sandpaper and scuff them a bit, now use some paint or a permanent marker to black them out.  Now with the four new rectangular reflectors in place and the playing cards out of your spokes, you can ride with the big boys. 

Total Time:  30 Minutes
Total Cost:  $27.53 - Ordered the 4 New Reflectors from a Dealer
