  1. Past hour
  2. Installed a new rear tire and exhaust since it’s easy to do both at the same time.
  3. Tires!

    Here is the T30 Evo next to the original.
  4. Exhaust

    It is finished

    Oh fuck don’t start that conversation again. Please
  6. 2000 VFR800i throttle and idle nightmare

    My synch tool has the adapters, my single gauge pod does not. Good point. I'll clear the codes and start over. Thank you! Dammit if I can rebuild an nv4500 and decide to swap the entire front end in my truck on a whim I can get a motorcycle to run.

    I still need that exhaust. Drool. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. 2000 VFR800i throttle and idle nightmare

    Last time I did a valve sync I used a 4 gauge instrument with each vac hose having a small plastic screw valve to eliminate that "bounce". For a 98-99 it's a fairly straight-forward procedure. Someone with a 00-01 could tell you more about doing this with the "wax unit". To clear the codes:
  10. Front brakes seized

    No idea on linked brakes cos my bikes donot have that. But also have a look inside the brake fluid MC (careful with spillage). Note that the little screws are JIS (Japan Industry Standard) size and made from what appears to be metal sourced from shit-hole countries , so use a well fitting screwdriver. Check the download section here on VFRD for a the workshop manual
  11. VFR 800 F - Development story

    Exhaust system is the same but only one o2 sensor vs two for the VFR 800 VTEC.(so basically you can swap it and plug a screw in the hole) Water pump case is the same but the propeller have a different design.(i broke the water pump case and replace it with a VFR 800 Fi case because the part was not available until three months) Intake funnel have a different design Camshaft intake is different, Camshaft exhaust is the same. Cylinder head have a different design.(More static compression) Apparently the alternaltor and the RR have been changed. Don't know more. He is now on the front of the bike. You can saw it behind the headlight(not on the photo) The piston, liner have been changed. Most of the parts are plug and play with the VTEC.
  12. Front brakes seized

    Thank you. It has linked abs, will that cause a problem with bleeding the system ?
  13. VFR 800 F - Development story

    I wonder if anyone has compared the header design of the 8 gen vs 6 to look for any differences?

    he had me at $50/hr
  15. Front brakes seized

    I would take the calipers from the rotors one at the time and carefully pull the brake till you see the pistons cone out till you see "clean" metal. This tells you how dirty they are. Whip out brake cleaner, cloth and toothbrush and see if you can get them cleaned. If that does the trick, fine If not and or heavily pitted, break your piggy bank as new piston are not cheap. Donot forget to clean/flush the MC.
  16. Help me get naked

    it's a real cheap generic bucket. the lense is plastic, but it'll do for now. while i was plugging the headlight harness onto the bulb, the damn bulb popped out. i was able to fix it without damaging or touching the bulb https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M3Q5L3U/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 the fork ears are a lot nicer than i had expected, and cheap, too! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01ERY83VM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 using these turn signals. they feel pretty high quality for only $18 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N2JYA7M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 i just dropped it off at a guy's home shop in college station. i should hear something by monday, on if the cheap gauges will work or not.
  17. Hi all. My vfr 800 vtec 2005 has been standing for a few months due to work commitments and twins being born. Went to take her for run today and could not get the bike off the side stand, the front wheel was locked solid ! I managed to free it a bit with a screwdriver prying the pads from the discs but as soon as I pulled the front brake it seized again .... what’s the likely damage ? Just strip down and clean or complete rebuild ? Thanks

    How do I clear the faults? Tried the age old 'disconnect the battery and tough the cables together to drain the system power", but it didn't work.
  19. VFR 800 F - Development story

    I see 141 mph GPS from a motorcycle magazine. Honda claims top speed is (150 mph)242 km/h for the 8 Gen. 138 mph = 222 km/h, 141 mph = 227 km/h. I push mine at 145 mph(gps) = 233 km/h. Not much difference here. The VFR 800 F they tested seems to be very conservative(93 hp) Höchstgeschwindigkeit = top speed
  20. Lowering front end

    In the rear Im going with this 😍
  21. VFR 800 F - Development story

    No shit Sherolock! My 1986 VF500F2 does 123MPH (on GPS)....... But, the 8th gen is classy looking bike....
  22. VFR 800 F - Development story

    I'm yet to see stock 8 gen dynos with hp near high nineties. 6th gen has plenty of those dynos online. Also: from Cycle World: "The revised engine tuning has slightly softened output up near peak revs, though, causing the new Interceptor’s 138-mph top speed to be several clicks slower than its predecessor’s." https://www.cycleworld.com/2014/07/16/2014-honda-vfr800f-interceptor-sportbike-motorcycle-review-photos-specifications-performance-numbers#page-3

    That´s very generous Skids but not logistically feasible. The gesture is much appreciated though!! The more I think about it the more I lean towards the 01:10h bus and just being jet-lagged and red-eyed the following few days... and probably scoring less on the exam I´m travelling there for due to poor quality sleep, but the exam is Saturday so I´ll just have to turn the fiesta-dial down a few notches Friday night. 20 years ago I would have biked it.
  24. 5th Gen seat on a 6th Gen?

    Absolutely not.

    I've left my 08 VFR at Luton for a long weekend twice thanks to the free bike parking (but this was just outside the terminal, I think they've changed that recently) with no issues. We live 30 mins the other side of Luton (near J10 of the A1). There's a bed here if you want one, depending upon the date. Still an early start but much less time on the road, albeit the roads on our estate are not gritted so if there is ice, it's 1/2 mile to the main road which is.

    Kwee....can you change the colour of your font, it's almost impossible to read. Likewise with the quotes that come out in white.
