  1. My 01 definitely didn't have SS headers before I replaced them. I've seen this stated many times before, but have yet to see an 01 with stainless.
  2. That's sort of right. There is only one fan on the gear shift side, it doesn't shut down until fluid temp gets below 98*C, it starts at 112*C from memory. If fan is running, once you get to certain speed, the airflow overcomes the fan and it will flow through the fairing vents, but the fan doesn't actually shut down. They run hot in traffic due to poor airflow through radiators at anything below 60kmh. I've installed a fan override switch so I can run it before it gets too hot, this helps stopping it getting to above 100*C. But in hot days in traffic, it will run very hot, it's how they are.
  3. So I'm guessing you use the 1098 disk and caliper as well?
  4. I've been looking at this Keef, after the amazing difference to the front suspension after taking 1.5kg of unsprung weight with the delink, I'm working on the rear including getting rid of the overweight VFR rear caliper. Do you have a parts list needed for this rear swap? I think you are near me in the hills district, if so and you don't mind PM me your number and I can pick your brain.
  5. There is actually not much in common between a VTR and an SP1 . SP1 has shorter stroke, fuel injection, gear driven cams, UD forks, different swing arm and rear suspension, different frame, much better brakes, and the list goes on.
  6. Catless Delkevic, with open Staintune.
  7. No, I got it made to the size I wanted.
  8. No, decided to ditch the original ones that I never really liked that much and keep it simple.
  9. For all the nothern winter sufferers, hang tight, summer will come again. No problem here, late afternoon Sunday ride and 28*C.
  10. Yep, they brought out a brand that cannibalised their other own brand.
  11. Or something that looked good. Most of my friends refer to them as pirate ships. And let's face it, there is only so many pirates to buy them. Here in Oz they don't have a very good reputation for relibility, service or spare parts availability. Shame still that another brand goes under. My friend who owns a BB has always wanted one, so he finally took one out for a test ride last weekend. He was very disapointed by weight, poor performance and vibration. Indian also share the showroom, so he sat on a 2016 Scout and fell in love. Very light by comparison, and better looking. They let him take it away for the weekend (they are very agressive at selling them here), so I got a ride on it when out for the day. First corner I came to I scraped the pipes, footpeg and took a chunk out of my right boot. I was't even going hard. I just don't get them.
  12. Sorry, what I meant to say was that they number the cylinders differently, but I could just be having a blond moment.
  13. I'm not sure you will be able to use a 6th gen ECU on a 5th gen motor. All the fuel/ignition mapping will revolve around the VTEC, going from 2 valves to 4 valves. They also have a different firing order. A 5th gen ECU with PCIII would be much simpler.
  14. A bit low at idle with lights on, check your idle speed. I raised mine to 1300rpm for that reason. If you did lots of stop start traffic riding with that voltage you will drain battery. Did you replace your main fuse holder from R&R to battery? That could be your bottle neck.
