  1. I checked the manual and it only says "Honda Hypoid Gear oil SAE 80". It doesn't mention anything about GL-4 or GL-5. So any gear oil that is sae 80 will work? also these are the only gear oil I can find where I'm from: Will any of these work for the VFR 1200 Final Drive?
  2. OBD on 2010 VFR 1200?

    Is there any OBD or OBD2 socket/plug inside or under the tank for the PGM-FI? or is it only the Red DLC plug near the battery?
  3. Anybody here know the pinout location on the ecu to let the gauge cluster know that the bike is on Sportmode(S)? Kind of like that pinout which turns on the yellow ABS light but only for the Sportsmode's "S". Planning to add a relay switch to turn on some electronics while on Sportsmode if this is possible. Service Manual didn't give any info. Thanks in advance. EDIT: By the way my bike is a 2010 DCT model EDIT2: Scratch this I just chatted with Don Guhl and the signal sent by the ECU to the gauge cluster is inside a CAN Bus line. It would be hard to interpret that signal. If anyone has any ideas on how to get a signal from a different connection it would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Hi Skids, I think the site I did the conversion on was US mpg. But I'll take note about the mpg figures when. Thanks. Regarding the mapping, yeah the fuel map from the site isn't doing any good on normal mode. Maybe I'll add a map switch to toggle between maps depending on the mode I'm on. I'm planning on getting AutoTune and slightly increasing AFR mixture for fuel economy. Anyone done this for better fuel consumption?
  5. Hello fellow VFR owners. I bought a VFR 1200 DCT a week ago I think the bike is fantastic for touring. Before the VFR I had a 600cc bike so I'm hoping to gather and compare fuel consumption numbers. I understand the bike has a 1200cc engine so with it comes lower fuel consumption numbers but I'm interested on hearing your fuel consumption averages. Right now I'm at around 14.5km per liter or about 34.1 mpg since I got the bike. ----------------------------- Also, the VFR I bought came with a power commander 5 but it still had a stock map. I downloaded a map from PCV5 site to match the specs of my bike and flashed the PC5. When I was riding alone on Sportmode(S), my fuel consumption jumped to about 16.5km per liter or 38.8 mpg. But when I was riding with my partner on Normal(D) mode it was down to 13km per liter or 30 mpg. It seems the fuel consumption I had was better when I was on Sportsmode than when I was cruising around on Normal mode.
