  1. When you said tasteless tank pad I envisioned something a little more appealing for my junk to run into. [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. 2003 Interceptor

    Welcome to VFRD. I've had Stock, Corbin, and Sargent seats. Corbin seats are nicely shaped but hard. Sargent seats are better but not really that much unless you put in long days. Helibars are great if you are over six foot tall. Again, not that important until you get to long days. DM will take care of the suspension for sure. I've had an 02, 03, and 07. The 03 with PCIII was the smoothest running. If you have any fueling issues after exhaust mod, look into a Power Commander or RapidBIke.

  6. If the brake and clutch fluid are dark and they don't have a receipt for service in the last three years, walk. Plenty of good examples in that range with history. Brakes, clutch, and fork fluid service gets expensive if you don't do your own. Of course this is any bike, not unique to VFR's. I've had 02, 03, and now an 07. The 03 with a power commander was the smoothest bike I've ever owned. Good luck with the search. Tons of good info on here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    There were at least two yellow 5th gens this year at the Spring Ride as it is now called. Several members in Greenville. Find a bike and catch a ride. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. HELP - need stator and rectifier!

    Duc2V4 offer up some help in this thread. He's in CA. There is also a followup on how the OP got his bike home. Good luck Joe!
  10. Father in law bought a CB500X

    The CB500x is a great bike! I bought one for my daughter and I love it. Way more fun around town than the VFR. The stock tires and suspension are not too great but both easily fixed. There is tons of stuff about the GSXR rear shock swap. None of them mention the x but it works and is many times the $25 I spent on it. On the other hand, if he has been riding a 59 model anything, this new bike will blow is skirt up in stock form. Be aware, if you ride it, you'll want one.
  11. Twitchy while maintaining speed

    These bikes are known for this issue. A couple of things to check that would change with miles: Chain slack ( I can always tell mine is getting loose because it feels like the throttle is getting touchy.) Throttle cable slack Starter valve sync (shouldn't have really changed)
  12. Help... 6g losing power

    A weak spark or other electrical issues? Check all of your grounds. The only thing that I noticed in the video was that your cam chain tensioner sounds like mine. I put a new one on mine and it lasted about a thousand miles. Look up the rebuild threads or check the tube for a video. That's where I'll be headed next.
  13. Assen 2017

    I see a lot of disc locks. Is bike theft that common over there? Hardly ever see one over here and like never at a bike related event.
  14. please. No.

    Does everybody else see Timmy written all over this?
  15. Thanks for the tip. I solved this the throttle issue on my 03 with a PCIII and map. Butter smooth. My current 07 has been a pig. We did a starter valve sync at the spring ride and it made huge improvement but it still has a slight lag. It makes it hard to pick up the throttle coming out of corners. Makes me feel clumsy(er). I'll be checking my boots next.
