  1. I modified the hand controls on my 2014 VFR because I am missing my left hand. I used steel braided lines almost throughout the line (from hand control to caliper), but I have an issue with the fluid getting dark pretty quickly. It gets dark within 500 miles. The steel line goes from my hand control to the rear caliper except for the final 10-12 inches, then its the factory rubber hose. Would the rubber hose be a factor? Does the dirty fluid effect performance? TIA
  2. Wow, I am impressed. I have a 1997 VFR and its getting very tired. I don't think I need the fork modifications, but I'd like to replace the rear shock. I am going to look into your ideas. Thanks Bobby
  3. Pipe & chip?

    I'm thinking about a slip on pipe for better sound, but do I need to chip the motor to accommodate?

  5. Dunlop Roadsmart 3's

    I know I'm late to the party, but any recommendations of where to buy Dunlop Roadmaster 3 tires? And yes, I'm looking for the cheapest price.
  6. Where did you buy this tank bag?
  7. Where did you buy this tank bag?
  8. Wow, I didn't know there were so many options. The Givi tank lock system looks odd, like its perched on top of the tank instead of hugging it. I like the Bagster cover, mainly because my high strength steel claw chipped the hell out of my 1997 VFR. That Bagster cover would be perfect. Thanks guys!
  9. I would like to treat my new Viffer better than my 1997, so I'm looking for any recommendations on a tank bag. Brand? Magnetic type or standard tank bag version with straps? thanks
