    Yellow VFR
  1. Speedo error

    same here. I found speedo reading about 7% high. i think it works for mph too :P install was clean and quick.
  2. Hi All, I've been unable to find this information. I have a friend who wants to start riding, and I want to get her this book... but she's a native Russian speaker. Does anyone know if there are russian tranlations of this book available? I've been unable to find anything...
  3. How old are VFR owners?

    quick dumb question, where can I find the results of the poll?
  4. overheating in traffic

    my first thought was air in the system as others have mentioned - is there a burping process described in the manual?
  5. Linked Braking

    (since 5th and 6th gen linked brakes are similar in behavior...) parking lot speeds aren't enough for me to notice if the rear brake pedal affects the front at all, to me it all works fine and is super stable. the _only_ thing that I don't like about linked brakes is that you can't "test" traction on different surfaces by seeing how quick the rear locks, because it won't.
  6. Denali split sound bomb

    aah i see, yes, it looks the same. FWIW (I just learned what that stands for!!), mine has lasted about 7 years and seems fine. different manufacturer, but if the quality is similar, you shouldn't have any problems.
  7. Denali split sound bomb

    I have a stebel nautilus compact tucked in my front fairing ... spilled coffee, dropped cell phones. it's a great addition and helps those driving cars to suddenly become aware of their surroundings. @Samuelx, you're running this off of a relay, right? don't know about the 8th, but 5th runs the horn and brake/turn/running lights off a 10amp fuse which I (and others who have installed it) don't think is enough for the draw of the horn.
  8. Mint 2000 Model. Picking up tomorrow !

    It's like times new roman vs arial. not much, but for me tough to look at. 1998/9: http://www.ebay.com/itm/TACHOMETER-TACH-honda-VFR-800-VFR800-INTERCEPTOR-intercepter1998-1999-/222361895560?hash=item33c5cd4288:g:3cEAAOSwnHZYZnnn&vxp=mtr 2000/01 http://www.ebay.com/itm/98-99-00-01-HONDA-VFR800-VFR-800-Cluster-Speedometer-Tach-Gauges-67K-/142267387533?fits=Year%3A2000|Make%3AHonda&hash=item211fcc0e8d:g:2MMAAOSwUKxYlR8k&vxp=mtr&autorefresh=true
  9. helmet speaker mounting...

    got the helmet, rode in to work today with it. it's amazing. i had no idea how soft an interior should be! the cheek pads aren't specifically cut for speakers - but it's pretty clear that for those with the cut outs, what they did was trace an outline in the outer layer of foam (towards the ear) and not glue it down. It's a little noisier than I expected. The longer I left it on at home the more I realized i'm not as "long oval", but the interior is so customizable, it was just a matter of peeling out a couple layers of the foam on the sides of the upper insert, not it fits like it grew to my head. i can wear my sunglasses without smashing my temples. the new (to me..) shield style is great. it's very stiff by comparison, both in it self and how it pivots with the helmet in the hinges, and has the recess for the pinlock insert - there are no questions about where it goes. and the optics are cleaner, there's less distortion. I like that the visor doesn't really open that far, just enough to get it out of the way. I always had to set my x-11 visor in the middle of the range so that it was out of the way but also didn't catch the wind. weeeeeeeeeee!
  10. Let's talk tyres!

    I have Angel GTs on now, going to try the T30s next. The rear is ok, but the front feel is terrible with about 30% left, but i've possibly been hard on it recently. my suspension is stock, fresh forks (seals, bushings, oil) except with a 929 shock. always stock pressures.
  11. N + 1

    what carburetor do you have on it? I put mine back to stock to sell and gained back all the low end torque. If you ever see a purple '96 1200c with dual front disks, it was probably mine :p I do miss the belt drive..
  12. Replacing Front Brake/Clutch Levers HELP!!!!

    for reference, here's what the end should look like. nice choice of levers ;) WELCOME, by the way!
  13. Intro new 2000 vfr owner

    yes, also the paint code sticker on the tray under the seat - yellow is Y124 something. regardless, super clean bike!!
  14. Intro new 2000 vfr owner

    BusyLittleShop can handle this - he has peg lowering blocks for sale that fit a few generations. I've had them for about 20 thousand miles and they're great. Curious, was your bike repainted red?
  15. Strange rear end

    looks like there are paint runs in the tail, noticeable just below the cowl. I'd say it's "one-off". I think the tank and seat cowl may be original paint, but the rest of the tupperware appears to be a different shade, lighter/redder.
