  1. in the thick of it

    Just an out and about checking out the roads during what seems to be an epic season so far
  2. I am having a problem with my VFR750. It has a problem revving up under load past 6000 rpm. I have been told that if I adjusted screws that are circled that it would fix the problem. Here is an explanation of what is happening. When I am riding it will do fine in the lower rpms up to about 5500-6000 rpms. After that when open up the throttle (from half throttle to full throttle) it surges a bit and the rpms will actually start falling slowly while losing acceleration/torque and it sounds as if it bogging. I worry messing with the carbs. I am hoping someone has had this issue and has a fix. Thanks. If anyone has any questions please let me know.
  3. Having dug out all those old brochures I might as well share the 1990, 1991, and 1992 VFR750 as they appeared in the Canadian brochures of the day. As before I have somewhat large jpg scans if any is interested.
  4. Whilst traipsing about my place organizing some new bookshelves I came upon this page from Honda Canada's 1993 brochure. That year we got the white colour scheme and doesn't it look fantastic - not at all like a refrigerator. Btw, it listed at $8,999 Not sure how big the file will be, but my original scan is ~5000 px wide.
  5. 4th Gen no charging while running

    So i thought I solved my electrical issues with the VFRNESS and new RR. Last RR was junk and caught on fire, replaced it with a RR from wiremybike.com. After I spliced in the new plug and put in the new RR my battery started dying on me. It would take a charge but wouldn't keep it, got it load tested and came up bad, so I replaced it. Now with the new battery I have zero volts coming back to the battery from the bike. Think it's the stator? How can I test it? Thanks, Miles
  6. Hello All, I just bought my first motorcycle and I am having an issue. It's a 1995 Honda VFR750F. I have been riding it for about a week no more then 30 minutes at a time around town. I just took it out to some country roads and the highway for little over an hour. I stopped to pick up a pack of smokes before I went home. I got on tried starting it and the lights dimmed and the starter barely turned. So I had to push start it to get it going. What could this possibly be? Also, the battery is about 1 ½ old. The previous owner bought new and rode the bike once then it sat for a year. So I don't believe it be bad already. Thanks for the help.
  7. With Ducati about to release a high-end V4 super-sports machine, is Honda with so much history with the V4 engine caught napping? So who is copying whom? Honda was accused of copying Ducati in the late 1990s producing the VTR series of bikes (sadly missed in their lineup today) and now that Ducati is producing a V4 does this vindicate Honda's belief of the perfect balanced bike? So why is Ducati abandoning is trademark 90 degree V-Twin engine? Has the Vee-Twin reached the economic limits of horsepower? Is the physical size of the engine now impeding handling? Are they losing their Vee-Twin capacity allowance in racing? Or are they getting a runaway problem with emissions? Your thoughts...?

  12. Should have got a VFR sooner!!

    Hello all. Just recently discovered VFR's. Got a great deal on a 6th gen. I've had many bikes but never a VFR. Really liking it so far. Perfect combo of sport and comfort. Sounds like a V8 sports car also. Awesome! Really hate that this forum has no classifieds? Thats got to be first.

  15. From the album my VFRs

    This totem is the Salish Bear pole at the summit of the Malahat highway near Victoria BC. It was carved in celebration of the 1966 centennary of the merger of colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia. The elevation is a modest 356 metres, or 1157 feet, above Saanich Inlet which can just be spied in the background.

    Hello to all! This year we will be returning to the Microtel in Franklin NC for the 1st Spring Memorial Ride. (Formerly known as the Texasmac Memorial Ride) The dates are May 18-21 2017. Rates are as follows Thursday 75$, Friday and Saturday 85$, and Sunday 69$. Please note that unlike previous years, the hotel will not be holding a set number of rooms. As of this week there were 41 available. In order to get the special rate please make sure you identify yourself as a VFRD member! THE CUT OFF IS APRIL 19th! All I've worked out so far is the hotel. Please keep checking back as I do intend to set up an Eventbrite registration in order to allow folks to register and pay for shirts, food, and beer. Hope to see you all there!! -PRB
  18. I decided it was time to share my work in progress, a '92 VFR build - codename: "Vianca". This is my first foray into modifying/building a motorcycle and it has been quite the learning experience thus far. Without the help of communities like this one, DIY'ers like myself would surely be lost. Background I bought the bike from a guy off Craigslist for $1000 along with another project bike - a Honda Magna VF500c (my next project after this one). Two running bikes for under $2k - I was pumped!!! The VFR was done up as a streetfigher with some CBR parts (subframe, 929rr front-end) and overall ran pretty well, but needed some work. It was involved in slow low-side and it was suffering from the results of that lay down. It would have some trouble starting every now and then (starter clutch) and had a really loud knocking sound (heres a Youtube video of the sound), so those would have to be addressed. In addition to that, I wasn't a huge of the styling, color choice and especially the exhaust sound - way too ratty for my taste. After viewing some Youtube videos of what these bikes can really sound like, I knew immediately I wanted a deeper tone, but more on that later. Here is how she sat when I bought her: Planning & Inspiration Before setting off into the build I wanted to have some semblance of plan so I wouldn't spend a fortune trying to decide on a design direction. My overall goal for the bike was to simply swap out a few things here and there to have a roadworthy machine that looked decent and was reliable for the next season. That plan lasted maybe a whole two days - thanks internet. After seeing what some of you guys have done here on these forums and finding inspiration builds like @SEBSPEED and @apexandy I knew I wasn't going to be happy with a little tweaking - I needed...the full monty...within reason, of course. Ultimately, I found myself gravitating towards the speed triple and ducati monster look, so I decided that my best bet was to mock something up in Photoshop. I am familiar with the application (web designer by trade) so it was going to be the easiest way to see what I really liked. About 20 minutes later I had a rough idea thrown together: I am 100% sure this will change as the project evolves and if I can achieve even 50% of what is pictured above I will be beyond happy for my first build. Juggling work and a young family eats up the majority of my time, so the build gets my attention only after the kiddos are down and obligations are met. With a basic idea and mock up it was time to begin tearing her down. The Teardown (WARNING: Lots of Pics) With a Honda manual in one hand and wrench in the other, the teardown began! Seat off and checking things out Bye bye CBR subframe Poor frame was hacked up to bits Feeling naked now! Mmmmm...Carbs Carbs removed The source of that sound we all love! Crankcase cover removed...hmmm whats that? Upon closer inspection, you can see the cracks on the outer rim of the starter clutch. Additionally, those gold bolts were so loose when I took the cover off that they were about ready to fall out. Glad I caught this before something really bad happened. Houston we have a problem. Remember that "clackity-clack-clack" noise? Yeah, I found it. Blowing out lighters all day long. Also, check out that other bolt...WTF!? Hahaha Front cylinder head removed. Gonna need a bigger bench! Score! Picked up a Harbor Freight lift for super cheap and threw on a beefier wheel chock. Much easier to work on the bike this way. Removing the shock and Two Bros left-exit exhaust system. These pipes have seen better days. Trying to clean them up a bit. Its no sand or vapor blaster, but its helping. Hey, not too bad! Nice to have some helpers around the shop! Scored a Ducati Monster 696 seat on the cheap. Thanks Ebay! Was so excited I had to mock it up real quick. I like the way this is looking. Time to tackle the swingarm Current State That pretty much brings us up to speed on where the project is at this point. I am waiting the specialized tool to remove the castellated swingarm nut (another Ebay special), but I may get tired of waiting and just fab one up from an old socket and use the special tool tighten everything up properly. After that its on to cleaning things up and addressing the front end. Lots to do! I will try to update this thread as often as I can for those that may be interested, but feel free to follow along on via my Instagram account here - its easier to post quick updates with my phone then to rummage back through photos. Happy building!
  19. I am hoping to see if anyone can give me some advice in regards to the loud engine ticking/knocking sound that my '92 is making. I know some ticking is normal, but it sounds a little too loud IMO, but this is my first VFR so I'm not sure. I know that the bike is need of a header gasket replacement, so maybe that is it? I have also read that it could be the valves or starter clutch. If anyone can help me as to where I should begin to diagnose that would be greatly appreciated! Here is the video of the bike running: https://www.youtube.com/embed/983AMz2vlTU
  20. Hello all and thank you for having this site available.I did some searching through the boards but didn't see a solution to my problems.I picked up a 83 750 that runs and is in pretty good shape. My intentions were to fix it up and resell in the spring, but as I learn about the bikes history I may keep it.The last guy disconnected the fuel lines and ran it off a separate tank due to rust in gas tank.I cleaned out the rust and sealed the tank. From what I can tell the gas flows from the rear of the tank, to the fuel filter, to the fuel pump.. Up and across to a nipple on the left carburetor... Is that correct?My throttle side handlebar isn't locked in. By that I mean the throttle tube and switch housing moves freely along the handlebar.I've taken apart the switch housing but don't see any studs or places where the switch housing would secure into the handlebars.
