  1. +1 on the Sena. Extra key, Paper map of area In case you lose power or cell signal. Credit card should take care of any emergency. I also like to put ICE [in case of emergency] info in my phone and paper copy in my tank bag and jacket pocket with contact info, blood type, name and address. I would also do the same for your wife. Not a nice thought but seconds count if anything happens. Other than that just enjoy the ride.
  2. Trim clips recommendation, please?

    Wurth fastener has them in all sizes. You can buy online. You have to buy in quantity 10-25, average about $2 U.S. apiece. I work in auto repair and we have a selection of assorted sizes to choose from. If you don't want to buy a large quantity you may want to try a local auto parts store or independent repair shop ask for "push type retainer" or bring along one of yours for size comparison. Good luck!
  3. 97 vfr750

    Welcome! Nice looking bike, like the blue. For the lack of power I would check the air filter for a "mouse house" or just clogged. Second I would check clean the carbs look for holes in slide diaphragms. I have a '97 same bike as yours and it runs best on ethanol free gas. If it is available in your area I would use it. Did you have to repair any cracks in your fairings? If so what did you use?
  4. TMAC 2018 - INFO

    I'm in!! just got my work calendar for 2018 and I'm clear for the ride. Putting in vacation request tomorrow and making hotel reservations. On a side note, how do I get the 2017 ride logo in my page? **Oh yea, Thanks Ben and Bob, Where do I send my $50 to? I also have some door prizes If you could PM me as to where to ship them and if they would be appropriate. Thanks
  5. I'm glad to know it's not just me having this issue. Your the 1st person to acknowledge there are problems with the update. I called Sena today the person I talked to had not heard of this before. He told me he would pass the information on to the engineers so they could start working on a fix. I asked how I would Know when a fix was available and he took my E-Mail and would send a message. I did the latest update before I started this adventure. Thank you for the reassurance fix can't come to soon.
  6. Could not tell you. That is how it worked when I set it up the first time. I hit the thumb button 1 time wait for a tone and say call "a name on my contact list. I have a newer Sansung 7. Don't know if that makes a difference.
  7. OK so I went through and did a factory reset on the Sena, removed my Google account from my phone and set up everything again. Much better now only has feedback noise for about 1 second and operates normally. I still can't make a call with out Google assistant 1st asking me what I want or "How can I help you" . I guess the other options Google assistant offers is worth the 1 second noise but I wish It worked like it did originally. I guess I'm old and set in my ways. If anyone Knows how to return to just hit the button and say "call *****" Would be great. If not I guess I'll just have to live with this.
  8. Have not used my Sena 10 sense I updated my android phone. When I used it today to make a call I hit the switch to make a call and loud feedback noise {ouch on the ears} and after a moment Google assistant came on and said"how can I help". Could not make call. Came home and and tried to remove Google assistant could only turn it off. Could not make call with Google assistant turned off. If I can last through the 5 seconds of feed back I can ask Google to call whoever. Anybody know how to bypass/stop this noise?

  10. Intro and Wheel Question

    Some MX pants and boots are better than jeans also strap on Knee and shin guards are inexpensive. I use then to commute in my work cloths.
  11. I need help removing a screw

    If you can get a flat punch on the screw and tap it to flatten the top to tighten the bite. Then a little valve lapping compound on the tip of your screw driver will give extra grip to keep it from walking out. Place the screwdriver into the screw Give a tap to drive it in tight. Also I like Snapon Type screwdrivers with the wrench grip at the top so you can push down on the screwdriver while turning with the wrench for extra leverage. Good luck cause Drilling and taping SUCKS!!
  12. After my trip to Barber motor sports vintage festival added another thousand So I'm well over 50K on my '97. Does not seem like much compared to others here.
  13. I've run the Pilot road 4's and have the Angel GT's now. I'm in Florida and wet grip about same for both. I got 8k miles out of the Michelin's worn in center most of my riding is commuting. I have all most 2k on the GT's not much wear. Have to say personally I like the way the GT"s turn in very smooth, the PR4's seemed to fall in but I'm no corner carver! Had Contimotion tires when I bought it. Wore out in about 4k and the last miles on them were very unpredictable a lot of moving around in turns. Oh congrats on a great looking bike I also have a 97 and just love it.
