  1. Hello Katie You are keen! Whereabouts are you in the UK. Oxford here. No bike currently as sold my 6th gen. Thinking AT or 7th gen. Cheers Brad
  2. So try a known-to-be-good bank angle sensor. Hold on a minute, are you referring to the main fuse? I thought that WAS a 30A fuse.
  3. I'm the same, completely stripped down two 6th gens to make one bike and just put all the bolts in one box (per bike). I remembered where they all went. Maybe twice had to think for a minute. I was already very familiar with the 6th gen though. Then I can never remember if my sister's birthday is the 6th or the 8th of January.
  4. Cage? You mean crash bars like those on say an Africa Twin?
  5. Unbolt it?
  6. You mean how young are we/they?
  7. Just copying and pasting this private message here for posterity. If it gets left in my pm inbox it defeats the purpose of this being a forum. I would have answered here eventually. Can't be everywhere at once.
  8. I used a PC FLO billet aluminum reusable/washable oil filter. Never let me down. Never caused any issues. Bike ran a smidgen cooler. Paid for itself over long run. http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/73708-reusable-oil-filter/
  9. I did the whole cut-the-end-off-the-adjuster-bolt thing and ditched the lock nut to be able to adjust even lower and still was never happy with the brake pedal height. Then I found a second hand set of Thurn adaptors (unicorn poo stuff). If you're committed to BLS lowering blocks you could have a metal smith bend the pedal for you to a custom height. That's the only way to really get a comfortable height on that rear brake pedal.
  10. Stealth brick on wheels
  11. Read this about the fuel pump... http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/topic/85475-Anyone-changed-a-Sixth-Gen-Fuel-Pump?
  12. Does that come with a siren and advanced life support?
  13. So with 3 litres left he still had up to 50-60 Km up his sleeve. In Europe not usually a problem. In the USA or Australia it could very well be.
  14. Yet the o.p. is referring to previous gens. Doubt the 5th gen exhausts swap in. Maybe I am delusional. Has been known to happen.
  15. How many litres does the 8th gen tank hold? If you got 18.4 litres in that means you had how much left? On my old 6th gen I could swear if not stuck in traffic or hammering it on a hot day I could probably stretch the reserve out anywhere from 60-70 km. It's a 22 litre tank, officially 3 litres left when reserve starts flashing and the only time I was ever worried was somewhere in a desert landscape in Spain, the petrol station we planned to use was closed... and we made it to the next and I still had a litre left. The bowser my mate used to fill his 4th gen actually marked 21.2 litres served. 4th gens have a 21 litre tank.
