  1. Huh. I dunno, then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Maybe Ti doesn't bend well? Seems like a lot, if not all, of the Ti systems I see, including GP bikes, are made that way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I remember these coming out around the time I started riding and I wanted to trade my 599 for one with a half fairing. Sweet bikes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Tires!

    I did not like BT016s and said I'd never go back to Bridgestone, but I'm pretty happy with T30 Evos. They feel good, plenty of grip, inspire confidence. I'd feel comfortable doing a track day on them. I've been to the edges of the rear at over 90 MPH. I feel like they might let go a little more easily in the wet than I expected, but my expectations might not have been realistic as, other than OEM Dunlops, I haven't used any other tire in five years.

  5. Two VFR's in One Day?

    I really want to get a track bike, then, people post RWB '86s for sale and I just don't know. The white 3rd gen is almost as sexy as my 8th. I might need one of those, too.
  6. A second bike?

    I was going to get the 821 (white is sexy) before I got the VFR. Having owned the VFR for a year and a half, I feel like I would want a second bike to have more power, so I'd probably be more inclined to get the 1200 or a Tuono. If they're not in the price range, though, the lighter weight and more compact feeling of a naked will still be be a pretty big change from the VFR for days when you're feeling a little more spirited.

  7. Gear indicator error

    Usually, it's because I haven't shifted decisively enough, once or twice it's happened. One other time, it just messed up out of nowhere and took several minutes to regain its bearing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Advice needed on second bike

    I've seen clean 2nd gen SV650s for $2-$3k just about every time I looked. Decent power (could pretty much keep up with my 599 in straights), narrow, light weight, and parts everywhere you look. The Honda single doesn't really interest me, but all of the other current 300-500cc sport bikes, naked, and mini-ADVs look like a lot of fun and I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. Or how avout a WR250x? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. New VFR Owner - Hi and a few Questions

    I just ordered the speed bleeders recommended in the email, but forgot about the bag. Is it really worth picking up or can I do the same job with something easily rigged up? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Bikini Bike Wash at Ace Cafe Orlando

    My bike was similarly decorated after parking under a lamppost once. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Ensuring you re-torque every bolt

    What I do at work, and what appears to be done when the bike is assembled, is a paint pen mark. I've never taken anything on the bike apart far enough to need it, but that's one way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Notice anything new on my VFR?

    We're in a bit of a dark place over here. It's been a long time since things looked this bad for us. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Synthetic Diesel Oil for Motorcycle?

    Didn't really pay attention to the picture, but for everything I consider, except Motul, I make sure it's JASO MA rated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Synthetic Diesel Oil for Motorcycle?

    I probably never even looked at that as I figured the only Mobile One I could use was 4T. If 5W-40 will work, I'm good with it. The manual seems dumbed down compared to older bikes, though, and doesn't give me the weights I can use in various temperature ranges, just says plainly "10W-30." Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Super Charger Kit - 8th Generation

    ^^^^Chuckles, look at posts #526 and #530 in that link for the high mount I was talking about. I was wrong on what he used, but it looks great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
