    And still some venture out... .
  6. 5th gen "coil on plug" setup.

    Suzuki also use Denso COPs (like Honda), but there are a lot of different versions. 129700-3440, 3630, 3881, 3960, 4150, 4400, 4420, 4800, 5100, 5140, 5230 and 5330. Those are just the ones I know of! I was just about to suggest that someone post the Denso part numbers of the "GSXR" COPs they've found to work... Cheers,
  7. 5th gen "coil on plug" setup.

    x2 Can someone positively ID the part # or specific donor bike model and year for the GSXR coils that have the "tophat" over the top style seal/boot? Thank you in advance. My ebay search for "gxsr coils" brings up quite a few variations (especially considering the volume of non-factory options) and Partzilla doesn't show specific part images for these.
  8. Pc2 parameters ???

    Might want to keep the PC2, newer ones don't allow ignition mapping

    I've fitted Cheapie handguards to my Vtec. it's made a difference as it has cut out the wind chill factor. Not had a chance to try them at sub zero conditions but my get my wish later this week.

    BLIMEY DUTCHY... you don't half get big cats over there !
  11. Seat mod/recover

    Not to hijack the thread, but where did you get the work done, Cogswell? I'm not far away, so if you were happy with your service, maybe I'll give them a try... I've thought about trying to rework the stocker myself, but I've got enough projects! I've got the stock seat (horrrible) and a Sargent that is better, but not great. I agree on those lines on the Sargent... It's perfectly comfortable when you first sit down, but after a few hours that piping feels like a razor blade!

    Snows are getting heavy now over here......
  13. 8th gen upgrades to your 6th gen

    868 miles... man, that's like crib death! Poor thing never had a chance!
  14. Interesting Fuel Stats.

    Haha, yeah my point is that they don't just say the "recommended octane is 86, period - end of discussion". They say "86 or higher". Therefore, I tend to read it as "recommended octane is greater than or equal to 86, with 86 being the absolute bare minimum to achieve acceptable engine performance"
  15. There is... http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/86525-3rd4th-gen-brembo-upgrade/ Not too expensive and a night and day difference
  16. Buy it Back??

    I think if you can get them down to $4K and a new set of tires, you will have a great story of how a dealership paid you to store your bike!

    Which ones did you end up using Robbie?
  18. London calling...

    What takes 45mins on the bike took 1hr 25mins last week, due to the volume of traffic plus the 40mph average speed stretch around the A14 upgrades. Drove this morning too....snow all over the roads and freezing conditions. Have already been told by work to delay going in tomorrow as the -12 deg C forecast temperatures on top of the rain/remaining snow today will make the roads an ice rink and not worth the risk to life.
  19. London calling...

    Me too... didn't fancy the M25 on the bike. took me twice as long but got here safe.
  20. Bought from an eBay seller called “drysuits”. Item number 332464160976 Link here: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F332464160976 Samuelex, I commend you for repairing what most would have just discarded. I’m a big fan of “mend and make do” and don’t approve of this throwaway culture we have developed. It may not be pretty but it is clever and works.
  21. London calling...

    Enjoy your toasty warmth indoors Leon. I must at least go out to get to work and back. Coming from a Mediterranean climate the last half of my life and a tropical one the first half... I just had to make one of these... Starting to think I might have to winterize the bike. I thought Oxfordshire was milder. No snow last year.

    that's why I stuff and shove. I had to lengthen some, shorten some, and reroute some others. I would love to pay someone to make me a nice, clean, custom harness.
  23. Interesting Fuel Stats.

    +1 with one exception.... I once pulled over at a gas station in Germany, running on fumes... Close to Luxemburg, the home of cheap gas, on offer was E85, so I thought is was 85 octane... (we normally have 95, 98, 102 octane) Euuuhh no. it was 85% ethanol which I found out soon enough, stuttering and spluttering..... So no, RC36's donot enjoy ALL fuels....
  24. 5th Gen Engine Modifications

    Recalling my start-up issues some years ago: are your injectors sticking? Ciao,
  25. What can you tell me about my VF500?

    To repent, post some new pictures of your bike.....
  26. Interesting Fuel Stats.

    In my experience, my 4th gen didn't care at all what fuel I put in there, including crap grade tractor gas once while I was stuck way out in the middle of nowhere. But my 8th gen seems to be much more discriminating. At hooligan RPMs most folks probably would never notice but cheap gas grades really hurt low RPM performance. It was a difference I could both hear and feel.
