  2. I would say it's a great price with the factory bags and low miles also the center stand and heated grips. I will buy the saddle bags if you want to sell them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. I had heard ti is a bit more prone to cracking. Not bend friendly lo, argh Jezz, if Gabe's going to offer a ti system even more praise to him with all the welds per system.
  5. Seat mod/recover

    I had my 6th gen Sargent re-worked locally, though I never liked it from the start. I had mine done by cutting down the Sargent foam to a thinner level and then had 2 layers of progressively softer foam put on top of that. They were able to do that whilst retaining the cover. That way it molds to me to eliminate pressure points but still offers support against bottoming out on the seat pan. They also shaved off the contour lines that run lengthwise along the saddle that would cut in to the thigh on long rides. My longest ride on it was 460 miles. My arse wasn't fresh as a daisy when I got off it, but it was doable. A 300 mile day on it is not a problem. Maybe the most important thing is to find someone that will work with you. Each person is built differently and has their own preference for firmness so be sure to get what you want.
  6. Buying advice - 8th gen

    Might be moving from Reno to the Seattle area soon. Probably consider selling my new (~780mile) '14 Deluxe to get a 2nd car for work. Also found out we have our 4th kiddo on the way sooo.... Lol. Let me know if you're interested we can talk.
  7. New Owner

    Thanks for all of the input. The seat may be OK for me, but the wife wants one with a backrest to feel a little more secure back there. I ride from Elgin, IL. to Missouri to get the bike in the same day to get it. Was over 1K total. That may have killed my backside for the ride back. Left a 3:30 AM and got home at 11:30 PM. That just may have been one of the dumbest things I've done lately. The stock tires do blow. They have a strange profile compared to the Q3 on my BKing and the S20 evos I had on the ZX. Has anyone tried the roadsmarts? I'll be doing a taller screen and the pegs first. Maybe the re-flash as well. Any good grip suggestions? My hands seem to take the worst beating from the bike. Bill

  9. Thinking of installing one on my 2014. I've installed 4 or 5 before on past bikes with no problem. Just wondering if it will be any more challenging for our 8th gen VFRs. Thanks. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk
  10. looking to buy some stock parts

    If you wind up needing a stock upper cowl, I put one in the Classifieds a few days ago.
  11. New leftover base 2014 price?

    If anyone wants a new pearl white deluxe they have one in St. Augustine for $8,999. Not sure what their fees are though: https://www.cycletrader.com/dealers/Powersports-St.-Augustine-2891092/listing/2014-Honda-Interceptor-DLX-114168379
  12. Hi there people, an image is worth a thousand words so here it goes two thousand words: This is what i came up with, now i'm thinking about taking it to a welding shop to accomodate a pair of tabs and cut this tubing to match a bigger one that is oriented properly to plug into each side rad. I feel like this could end with the cooling problems we have on traffic jams during summer (even if we all know that the hotter the viffer the better it runs) So i've come up with this and i'll try to keep you all updated about how it goes The rad came out of an scrapyard from an unknown KTM (presumably from a 50cc cross style one)
  13. Buell XBR lowering pegs

    I remember those same Buell pegs costing $15 a pair at my Harley dealer.. that was nearly a decade ago...
  14. Advice on moving VFR on 5.5ft truck bed

    I had no issues getting mine in the back of my short bed Ford and being able to close the tailgate, hope this helps.
  15. This one or that one ?

    Actually it's a work in progress from what I've gathered. I've only just got this from FB posts what he's up too. Now the trick is getting the word out in what he does. I've seen action photos were they've been re touched up. His version IMO seem to me a bit unique and edgy. Yea he says he'd love to be able to get is work out there being seen. Here's his web site https://actionillustrations.com/

  17. R&G Tank Pads

    Nice looking motorcycle. If you get tired of them, put some Tankslappers on the tank and they won't be visible at all and will work forever.

    Thanks. Glad to be reminded of that after some weeks without traveling. Must say there are many places on you're side of the pond I would ride to if I ever have the opportunity. Sounds like you've seen them too.

  22. project 86 750

    Good info, thanks. I am not splitting carbs yet, this is just to get it to idle on it own, was using carb clean to make it run b4. When it comes back in for the real project it will for sure get all new o-rings gaskets seals and what not.
  23. So I might have done a thing......

    I can't help myself, Is that man at honda now or is he missing
  24. Helmet in Factory Side Case?

    Well, what do you know? I just went out and tried it. Had to get it in just right and give an extra push to the door to get the latch to catch, but it worked! I really should hang out here more often.
  25. Very nice kit. I might get one Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
