  1. Charging issues. 99 vfr800

    A couple of must reads for the electrical system http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/29975-tips-tricks-to-help-your-charging-system/&page=1 http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/66045-urethra-i-found-it/&
  2. Craigslist 5th gens

    Yes it is, I figure closer to $3500, not enough extras to justify the cash he is asking
  3. Craigslist 5th gens

    Rare green one, Aug 12, 2017 https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/bnc/mcy/d/vfr800/6228704552.html
  4. Hypers are a lot more money, not worth it to me. The displacement also puts it into a higher insurance bracket.
  5. Blue VFR

    Here in Canada we got all the colours, Red, Yellow, Silver, Blue and Green, which is the least common of all Myself I have the blue with silver wheels.
  6. That is where the ABS plumbing lives, it also acts to shield the starter motor.
  7. Talking to Myself

    Damn, I had to get the divorce for a second bike. Well worth it!
  8. What was your first bike

    Kawasaki 2 stroke triple, it lasted 2 months before I high sided and landed in the oncoming lane. Luckily no cars.
  9. Well I bought a second bike, why not? I figure everyone should have 3 at least in a perfect world. I bought the Dorsoduro 750 90 degree V Twin. Modded it out some, luggage, screen, fender extension, rear hugger, Wilbers shock -1 inch, spools, sliders, rad protector, Arrow cans, lowered forks 2 inches, front sprocket -1, and heated grips. I find the motors have some similarities with the Viffer as far as power and revs. Right now the Viffer waits.
  10. Lower bearing stuck in head-stock

    As mentioned above welding a stainless steel bead around the center of the race (stick or tig weld). Make sure it is stainless as stainless shrinks more when cooling (coefficient of expansion/contraction)
  11. Hello from England

    You will love the V4! Besides the essentials, Tires, brakes, bearings, battery, the only thing you really need to do at the start is make sure your charging system is in order as it is the achilles heel of the bike. This includes checking all electrical plugs, grounds etc. as it really is the achilles heel of the bike. Check charging output and then look to upgrade at http://www.wiremybike.com/vfr-specific-parts-c-1.html?osCsid=a829dd005948043555c6f7420c87fe62 Poor grounding via the ground block can manifest itself in many ways that can start off annoying and progress to a no start situation. http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/66045-urethra-i-found-it/#comment-773553 I went even farther with the grounds upgrading them all including the ECU Have fun!
  12. Have you entertained the idea of taking the cables out the throttle grip end and pulling them out that way?
  13. Build a better mouse trap - easy 5th gen hp

    ^ thats funny!
  14. Noob Electrical question

    Here is another common problem with G5 electricals discussed http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/66045-urethra-i-found-it/& If you search you will find more electrical suggestions....I have done most or all and have a very reliable viffer now.
  15. Once the Vif has reared the electrical gremlins you should do the typical mods to the system to make it the reliable Honda you know it should be. Stator inspection and replacement if needed upgrade rr to moffset Vfrness install Fuse the wiring harness ground block 2 grounds from EGU to frame Inspect electrical plug connections for corrosion and fit
