  1. Potential Re-release of Two Brothers Racing (TBR) 5th Gen Full Exhaust System!!! I requested information from TBR about the possibility of re-releasing the 5th gen headers. I received a response today from Greg at TBR forwarding information from the CEO... Sent: Tuesday, July 08, 2014 6:37 AM "We can re-produce the VFR800 headers 1998-2001 with 100 pre-paid orders. The 1998-2001 header has not been tested by us on the 02-09 or the new 2014 model. Each system will cost $899.98 for CF muffler and $799.98 for Aluminum. 12 weeks for delivery after all orders are complete. Thanks, Jeff Whitten Two Brothers Racing, Inc | CEO" I know 100 orders is a lot, but we have 26 already... As a company they haven't tested the headers on a 6th gen, but we know they work; using these headers on a 6th gen requires a custom mid-pipe that currently the buyer would be responsible for having fabricated. And we have reports of our European friends fitting 5th gen exhausts to the 2014 with zero modifications... I've also requested info on pricing and availability of just the headers instead of the full system EDIT: TBR response for the headers only: " Header & Midpipe & Hardware set cannot be split. They are $599.98 for that package" Note: The discharge from the header collector is not in the same location and angle as the stock header, this is a performance exhaust system. If you purchase the header and use your existing slip-on a custom mid-pipe will need to be fabricated. I'll commit, c'mon let's make this happen! Rush2112 - Full w/ CF muffler please!

  4. Stator for a 2002 model VFR800

    I’m having a lot of problems with my charging system on my 2002 VFR800 lately, and after running the diagnostics, (and replacing other parts) it looks like I need a new stator. Honda’s part catalogue, lists a stator with part number 31120-MCW-D01 for the 2002 VFR800. (I even used the VIN of my bike to find the correct part number). This stator has an external diameter of 114 mm, an internal diameter of 40 mm and the center of the stator (where it is screwed onto the engine cover) has a thickness of 20mm. However, if I measure the Stator that I have removed from my 2002 VFR800, I have a part with an external diameter of 108 mm. The internal diameter is the same with 40 mm, but the center of the stator has a thickness of 25mm. Does anyone here have any idea what kind of stator I might need? Are there any other part numbers for a 2002 Stator? Could it be that, even though I have a 2002 model, it is fitted with a 2001 Stator? Just guessing here…
  5. Guys, I recently bought a 5th gen RC46 VFR800. The bike's first registration was in 2000, but the bike was manufactured in 1999. How can I tell if it's a later or an earlier model? I'm asking, because frankly I prefer the earlier one - AFAIK the later one has a catalytic converter and oxygen sensors, stuff I can really do without.
  6. Michelin Pilot Power RS

    I recently had a set of Michelin Pilot Power RS installed on my '09 VFR. Since 2000 my preferred brand has been Michelin. Several sets of Pilot Sport and Pilot Powers, though the last set were Pilot Road 4. During this time I've also tried a few sets of Dunlop, Pirelli, or Bridgestone but none feel as good to me. The new PP RS might steer a little slower/heavier than the PP3, and the lack of tread is really striking. Hopefully, Michelin did their maths and they'll prove up to the challenge of wet pavement. So far I like them and am looking forward to see how they fare on my upcoming California trip this summer. Cycle World review Pilot Power RS
  7. Hi there, can anybody tell the what sort of bolt goes on plastic chain guard cover on the back side? i dont know if i have misplaced it or it wasn't there. in any case, the cover seems bit loose and this is the only one left. it is on the back side of the cover so bit hard to get to. i hope i have explained it properly. regards Vish
  8. Hi all, As per the title, is the 2017 VFR800F out in the USA yet? I nearly bought the revised model that came out in 2015 (is that the 8th gen?) but ended up with a BMW RnineT instead, which I've never regretted, but recently I've started to feel like I need a change (the R9T can be a handful!) and also a shift down to a smaller bike due to the outrageous costs in Australia of keeping a big bike (over 1000c) on the road. (We get stung for insurance twice plus registration and other costs are very high). So looking at new (or soon to be released) bikes I was happy to see there is a 2017 VFR800F model out but I'm trying to find out if it's changed much and if so, how? Also, is it out in the USA yet? If so, has anyone ridden one? My local Honda dealer (Sydney City M/Cycles for anyone that's in Sydney) told me they have no idea when it will arrive here and are trying to get me onto the new Kwakka Z900 instead (which I also like) but I really want to try and wait until the new model comes out here so I can ride it and decide. Anyway, just wondered if anyone has any thoughts on the new model - I see it comes in a beautiful looking silver/gold colour now which I think looks way better than the red. Discuss!!
  9. Review of Honda's 8th Gen (2014) VFR-800 from the point of view of someone who has owned and ridden '96/'97 VFRs just about since they came out. http://bytebrothers.org/vfr800.htm I don't have any pictures up yet but the text is pretty much all of what it will be. Commentary welcome. Enjoy! PS: Does anyone know if Honda has finally gone to MOSFET R/R units in the new VFR?

    From the album my trips

    In 1998 I jumped back to the VFR fold with this brand new VFR800. Resprayed wheels improve visual and a Yoshimura RS3 helps unleash the aural. Unfortunately this bike met an untimely end when it was stolen less than a year, and 25K km later.

    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.

  12. Tyga Vfr800 Headers

    I heard from Tyga regarding building VFR800 headers to our agreed upon specs... Their response, "Yes, we are interested..." A quick update to those tuning in late... I've been working on getting new VFR800 performance headers made for about 3+ years. in June 2014 I requested information from Two Brothers Racing (TBR) about the possibility of re-releasing the 5th gen performance headers. I received a response from Greg at TBR in July 2014 forwarding information from the CEO stating, "We can re-produce the VFR800 headers 1998-2001 with 100 pre-paid orders...." $800 for a full system, $600 for headers only, 12 weeks lead time after the 100 orders are paid. Not very promising. I contacted many manufacturers over the course of the next year and a half documented in this thread: http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/forum/index.php/topic/78592-potential-re-release-of-two-brothers-racing-vfr800-headers/page-1 I gave them the following information, e.g. this letter to Staintune: My fellow VFR800 enthusiasts and I are trying to find a place to get performance exhaust headers made for our beloved VFR800s. The earlier VFR800s engines are direct descendants of the cutting edge RC45 homologated race machine of the 90's and the 800's are capable of so much more performance. We contacted DimSport in Italy and they agreed to make plug & play wiring harnesses and develop ignition/fueling maps for our bikes to run the RapidBike EVO & Race modules and only required a minimum of 10 orders to start the work... we are up to 20 purchases and still counting! We are looking to interest your company to (produce) performance exhaust system headers... catless race use only;). Granted, Motad & Delkavic produce stainless steel headers but they have the stock tubing diameters and don't offer the opportunity for performance increases. Here's our key point... headers for any VFR800 will fit ALL the VFR800s! If someone will make these headers there are hundreds of thousands of bikes spanning 16 years of VFR800s that it will fit!!! People are interested; we have 26 people signed up and committed to buy and over 63,000 views on our group buy thread. if you made the performance headers for the new 2015 VFR800 it would be for a current model not an older model... and it would fit all the VFR800s from 1998 to 2009 (2010 in some parts of the world!) + the new model years. You would already have 26 orders right off the start! That should more than cover the tooling costs. And headers with a stock discharge location would fit current slip on models so you would have a full system with parts already on the shelf!!! Add a center stand stop and O2 bungs to the headers and you would have a versatile system that would fit hundreds of thousands of bikes around the world. Word would spread... the new 2014-15 VFR800 owners are already modifying their bikes and exhausts as we write... Don Guhl has developed ECU re-flashes for the VFR1200 and the 2006-2009 VFR800s, the new model will be next... adding 10-15 hp to this new bike will really wake it up and keep the people talking about it but it needs a proper exhaust to do that... " It amazes us that no one makes performance headers for our VFR800s. I have the tubing specs and I could likely have a VFR800 brought to (you) for designing a jig or I could send a set of headers for your use. Using 304 stainless steel the easiest and least expensive materials on my side of the pond is 18 gauge 1.5 (1 1/2) inch primary tubing leading into 18 gauge 1.63 (1 5/8) inch secondary that flows into 18 gauge 2.0 inch final collector. This gives a close ID (Inner Diameter) to the stock RC45 exhaust headers. Primaries (ID) = 35 mm Secondaries (ID) = 39 mm Final Collector (ID) = 49 mm If you can fabricate the headers with two oxygen sensor bungs and include a center stand stop like the later VFR800 headers and have a stock location for the discharge of the final collector then the headers will fit the widest number of model years with minimal modifications and would allow the use of auto-tuning fuel injection management. Headers with this configuration will fit VFR800s from 1998 to the current model year and bolt up to existing slip-ons (NOTE: additional research & work is needed, it appears 8th gen front primaries are routed different due to the front mount rads). These are the requested configuration details of the 25+ VFR800 owners I have lined up for these headers. I'm sure you already know from a performance perspective, small convergent angle collectors (<15 degrees if possible) will provide the best flow and performance and would be desired if possible. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the project. Please let me know if you need any additional details. Thank you for your consideration and time... No one was as enthusiastic about performance headers for the VFR800 as we were and there were no takers for building our headers... Next, I offered to put up $6000 USD to Tyga and Staintune for 10 headers and they realized I am serious. During my conversations with Paul at Tyga he told me they wanted to wait until they expanded their exhaust manufacturing capabilities. My offer was well timed and they just received their new tubing bender. They wish to fine tune their process and get used to the new equipment before starting our complex headers. The Christmas holidays are approaching and they will start next year on the VFR800 header project!!! Here is the email from Tyga: Great to hear from you again. Yes, we are interested, especially if you are willing to help us carry some of the investment costs. It will definitely be a big factor in getting this project underway. Not only does it help with the investment but it hints that there must be a solid market if you are willing to invest so much in it. We just got a new tube bender with all the bells and whistles and want to do a couple of less challenging jobs on it. After that, I think it would be a good project to do the VFR800 exhaust. I’ll source a bike locally, one way or the other. Frankly though, with Christmas just round the corner, it is going to be early next year at the earliest before we see any progress. Anyway, let’s keep in touch. Paul Below are the first members in bold from our initial list that have re-committed personally to me for the first ten headers. Pricing currently will be $600 plus shipping; I'm not making a cent on this activity and this is all for the VFR800 community. Please confirm or remove your commitment by replying to this thread. I may be able to increase the size of the initial order.Please reply with your commitment/removal and let me know if you will be able to have the funds available early next year to pull the trigger.

  17. Saturday was the last day of a five day warm weather streak. Got up early and made the tour of my local roads, Rockland County, West Milford, NJ, Greenwood Lake, Warwick and back to Fort Montgomery for coffee with the crew at Rockwells Cycle. After about 100+ miles I visited a long lost cousin for a couple of hours. We had a great time catching up on Chris & Marks porch. The day was made complete with a great ride through Harriman State Park, Perkins Drive and Seven Lakes Drive. This may be the last ride of the season as it snowed today.

  20. Its been over a month since I bought the 8th gen VFR800 and I haven't turned a wheel yet. My mission is to modify the bike so I can ride it with one hand. This is my 10-11 bike so i know what i'm doing. Because I'm trying to do it a little differently, its taking much longer than I expected. The 8th gen comes with ABS on the USA deluxe model so the brake lines are both rubber and hard lines. This is great in modifying the brakes as I can tie into the junction blocks that connect the rubber & hard lines. The challenge is where to find the adapters that will makes this happen. Since my usual method was to remove all the lines and make my own steel braided lines, this area of expertise is new to me. This new approach saves me from ripping the new bike apart and the $$ to make the lines. I am using Goodridge prefitted lines and they did have an adapter that fit the rear brake junction block (see pic). My dilemma is finding an adapter that will join the front OEM hard line and the Goodridge line. I've already wasted $65 and two weeks waiting for the wrong parts from the UK. Now I'm looking at auto brake parts catalogs like www.jegs.com for help. Three units are on there way, but that's another 7 days down the tubes. A side plan is to machine an existing OEM brake line junction block. That part is on its way too.

  22. Greetings from Russia, from Far East! I want to share my restore vfr 750f rc36 1991, to Your. My VFR was bought by the guy from the far,far away Russian village Planned manufacturing streetfighter , but inspiration has ended . Came the idea conversion to VFR800 VTEC 2003 . I did not see VFR750F in VFR800 body...so I decided to try to let everyone know that this is possible . Plastic was purchased with injuries after an accident . Hastily rebuilt , for the draft . At the moment, that's such a result . In the future, it will be installed: VFR800VTEC head light, new fairing, new front subframe. P.S the fuel tank in the photo, removed for repair P.S.S. Thx to Google Translate ^_^
  23. Hi everyone! I recently switched to a VFR and I'm loving every minute of it. One day I was a bit too eager to get going and... forgot the disc lock. The "inside" part of the disc got a bit bent so I replaced the disc. I did however have to ride the bike with a bent disc for a bit, maybe 30 miles or so. Now with the new disc in place I can feel a knock in the handlebars when I either brake decently hard or go over a bump. Going over a bump only gets one knock but braking makes a rhythmic knocking. Initial reading suggested steering head bearings so I lifted the front up and turned left and right slowly without feeling anything different. I also jiggled everything I could but there it doesn't seem anything is loose. Could it be that I screwed up the brake pads by riding with a messed up disc? Right side (old disc) has even pad wear while the right side, the one I replaced, has one pad a lot more worn than the other. I have new ones on the way anyway but I'm not sure this is the issue. Do you know of any other possibility, or some other test I can do? In short: Started with disc lock in Replaced rotor Knocking sound while braking (rhythmic) and over bumps (single knock) No odd feeling while turning handle Any thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated as I'm stumped and not even sure if it's safe riding :(
  24. Hi all! Would like to paint my VFR800 '98 with fluorescent paint. There are some questions I can't answer: 1)what's the optimal ration between fluorescent powder and base (2 component acryl varnish) ? 2)what can help in homogenization of powder's particles inside the varnish? I mean something except good mixing/shaking..=) 3)should I apply a white paint before using fluorescent paint or I can use only white primer instead? thanks!
