Yes, I believe so. Check out VF500 group on Yahoo Groups. There are a few experts there who can answer for certain, but do a search of the archives first.

The main differences on the fuel delivery were fuel pumps in '84 and none in '86 if I'm not mistaken.

vf500 gas tank

the gas tank is the same but the fuel valve isn't, 84-5 VF500F's all have a fuel pump, the 86 does not and therefore a larger diameter valve and the mounting bolts are different. I'd look for the right year, and if you do find 84-5's I can use 2 good ones.
