  1. 6th vs 8th Header mockup pictures

    I told Paul to let me know if the VFR community could help them build a bigger header in the future should they consider the project. we'll see.
  2. 6th vs 8th Header mockup pictures

    This was, respectfully sent to me from Paul Dyer at Delkevic Exhaust..... Hi Michael, Thank you for your email of a few days ago and sorry for the delay in responding to you. For a number of years now, we have considered further dev work for the Honda VFR800, especially when you consider the size of the market and how successful our current exhaust have been. However, we have so many projects going through R and D at any one time, it is very difficult to allocate a very expensive recourse to an already very successful product for an unknow commercial result. In terms of engineering dynamics, I would agree that there is more power to be had from the VFR and increased exhaust volume could certainly assist in that area. The idea of a “race” inspired exhaust certainly isn’t dead in the water, but equally isn’t super high on the agenda. Never say never! As for the later generation of VFR800 pipes, we have that covered with number of projects now: PR2873 VFR800F 2014 Front downpipes. PR2872 VFR800 2011-2017 COLLECTOR AND REAR DOWNPIPES These were signed off Mid August 2017 and should be commercially available very, very soon. I very much appreciate your comments and you never know what may happen in the not too distant future! All the best Paul

    I know this is crazy, but it might be time to appeal to Delkevic. as their header will fit a 2014-18 VFR with changes to the front pipes only. I'm gonna try re-pitching the 36mm ID primaries to them. I had their product development guy considering the whole option 3 years ago to anyone who wants to see the email chain between us. 36mm primaries into delkevics 4-1 collector to exhaust tapered deal would still yield considerable gains vs any other non RVFR custom built stepped race header :) and I'm guessing would be only a few bucks more in materials than the header they're currently pushing out.

    I think the front two are bow legged like that though to improve air through that bottom rad.... not merely really as a space issue. Possibly? But if that was the case why would they put an ENORMOUS big ass plastic duct that isn't even very breathable in the way of it?

    looks like it'd be in the way of that little radiator drain there, but honestly! might just go in
  6. 6th vs 8th Header mockup pictures

    this is the proof shot, and I think it might be close, but it might even make it....
  7. The frontend pipes don't look like they're at differing angles really at all. I get the feeling this "new" 8th gen header isn't different enough to keep a 5th or 6th off the bike if need be....... DISCUSS!
  8. -1/+2 520 conversion considerations

    There are some things to consider here! The '14 VFR peaks at 10,000 RPMS even, and holds that output til 10,500 or so before it drops off. Looking up the trusty gear commander, and the specs on the '14 's drivetrain at 16 and 43 the VFR800's reported top speed of 138 mph happens pretty much at the top of Fifth gear leaving 6th gear about 10% down on peak power @ around it's reported top speed. If the bike was making 115-120 HP that myself, and all the other guys scrounging for a real header, intake, and tuner setup This would be awesome because you might just see the 150MPH 10500rpm's in 6th gear. However at bone stock tune That's 9500 RPM's or so in 6th. Good for highway mileage, Not so sure about acceleration or top speed characteristics though. at -1T front we see a big shift and the 10500 6th gear comes down to about 144-145 mph. which might be a better tune for the basic bolt on crowd, PCV, some mufflers, flappers gone, ect. But from a motorsport standpoint, 1 down and 2 up is the usual, and for the '14 on paper seems to be a knockout upgrade. 10500 in 6th gear, 138 mph. I'm betting the accelleration would be vicious compared with stock gearing. To combat the idea of this being a no brainer upgrade though: The math says you will hit Vtec in 6th, also known as THE DEATH OF ALL GAS MILEAGE HOPES, at least 550 rpms sooner. I'm seriously considering going 1 down and 2 up on my 14. but we'll just see. Has anyone else done this yet?
  9. Do you wheelie your viffer?

    It's definately hindering you. the TCS is a very effective "don't be a bad boy" system, but for going quick it's worse than worthless. it's a complete liability.
  10. Does anyone in the san diego area change their own tires?

    should I run in on the 5 or the 15?

    You're on, son!! gimmie an address already made an LA run today, why not
  12. I've got an advanced rider course I've gotta do for the navy and it's at 645 tomorrow morning. I've been trying since saturday to get them changed to no avail.....Is there anyone here with the tools that we can do these tires ourselves today? heh
  13. Thank you guys, to kick a dead horse. the tap tap tap got all the air out of my clutch line after I bled out all the old crap. wasn't paying attention when I was opening my DOT4 and it siphoned out the top tank and started sucking air down the line. I heard it and went "Oh for f@&# sakes!" and dumped some more fluid in the resevoir but it was too late. spongy and not there. spent an hour going squeeze squeeze squeeze tap tap tap squeeze squeeze squeeze and it finally worked itself out. whew!
  14. Pipe & chip?

    You can bet your ass I do. and my mini delkevic makes the front wheel noticiably lighter in first gear. I'll believe the 3 hp up top. it definately doesn't feel any different anywhere else though.
  15. Build your silencer... VFR800F 2014

    Since you own an RC79 I'd love you to try a V4 header with larger and smoother built primaries, no catalyst, and we'll see if it fits the 5th/6th gen? it could be a relatively hot seller given the potencial market? :)
