1982 Honda VF750S V45 Sabre


Have not seen a later model that I would swap


Fusible link blew.

Stator failed, shorted out.

Front fork oil seal failed, leaked oil.

Drive spline in rear wheel chewed out.

Ignition switch had to be replaced.

General Comments:

I had a sheepskin seat cover made to fit, and long distant comfort is very good.

Highway pegs on the engine bar make a real difference.

The engine seems to like to cruise around 130kph when loaded with camping gear.

I have fitted new cam chains and tensioners, along with normal oil and filter changes every 5000k.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi, I am looking at a Sabre with 46xxx miles on it, which seems like a lot for a bike, and I noticed you have high mileage on yours. I was wondering if you ever had to rebuild the motor or anything?
