  1. Not able to like all posts . . .

    Damn, in my hurry to be witty I forgot the "likable" ! Sent from my phone. Please forgive brevity and spelling.
  2. Not able to like all posts . . .

    I guess that means we're the only people here!
  3. Not able to like all posts . . .

    I thought I was the only one! Just chalked it up to my browser though (Vivaldi) Perfect example is that I can "like" Cogswell's post but there is no option for Sweeper's post.
  4. I looked, but I cannot find the eliminator I have. Here is one that is similar: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Healtech-Electronics-Exhaust-Servo-Eliminator-for-VFR1200X-2012-2016-/282527637325?epid=655998343&hash=item41c7f59f4d:g:Q8UAAOSwPhdU66gh&vxp=mtr
  5. I don't think just removing the cable will eliminate the status light. Before I had the ECU flash I had to use a Servo Eliminator.
  6. The Ace Of Spades Baltics Tour 2016

    That bike is utterly stunning! You've always had my admiration, now you have my envy as well!
  7. R/R issue or worse?

    Fascinating mounting location. Let us know how it works out after a year or so. I think it is very clever!
  8. The Ace Of Spades Baltics Tour 2016

    Holy cow Dutchy! When did you get the RC-51?! That thing is gorgeous!
  9. Should Have Called it a Day

    I've taken a small bird to the chest while at speed and it hurt like hell, I cannot imagine what a bird of that size would have felt like. Really glad you are unscathed, sorry about the bike. But you realize it could have been worse and wisely called it a day. Smart man. Good luck on the repairs! Heck, maybe this is an opportunity to do some modifications?
  10. Chinese plastic

    I have never read a positive thread or review in regards to the Chinese fairings. At best they are "good enough" but more often than not they are brittle and ill fitting and people wish they had just bought OEM.
  11. What was your first bike

    Well, my first 2 wheeled conveyance was a scooter, 2004 Honda Reflex: That was originally bought for my wife since I had no interest in riding those damned death machines. But less than a year later I bought my first real motorcycle, the venerable 750 Nighthawk: After than I bought my 5th gen and I've been on this site ever since.
  12. R/R issue or worse?

    Now swap out that cam!
  13. Traction control, fuel gauge, fuel mapping, and LED tail lights. That is all that is different between the years. Traction control has never really got rave reviews that I have seen/heard. Most say that it is overly basic. LED tail lights you can convert yourself if it means that much to you. The fuel gauge would be "ncie", but honestly after a year I stopped looking at the fuel gauge and just went by the mileage. Fill up at 150 every time. 175 is the furthest I have ever pushed it. Fuel mapping, pfft! Don Guhl ECU flash regardless of what year you decide on. The REAL thing to focus on is whether you want DCT or manual. I wish there was a DCT within a 100 mile radius of me when I was looking. I still want to ride one.

    Honestly, I have always loved the Kawasaki Plasma blue. It really catches the light so that it looks like there is some depth to the paint.
  15. R/R issue or worse?

    You had to redo your R/R?! I thought you had that thing done years ago. Or did you just finally redo the wiring like you were talking about in my garage when we did my 5th gen?
