    Grinding gears

    That sounds terrible, should never be any grinding. The 8gen has one of the smoothest gearboxes ever. Have you tried unplugging the quick shifter and see what normal shifting is like. Almost sounds like the ECM is not managing the shift throttling/ignition as it should, make sure the Quickshifter microswitch is working properly. The Quickshifter is only for up shifts - sorry if I'm stating the obvious!

    Soooo my question about any version of the power commanders is will it make a 100% stock 6th gen have a less snatchy on and off throttle response and generally make the bike smoother. I’ve done nothing to the engine on mine except routine maintenance and after 9 years I’m thinking about trying one if it actually makes the bike smoother. Anyone out there actually run one on a stock 6th gen i.e. no exhaust or intake mods?
  4. there is a billet aluminum filler plug available from a guy on the VFR1200F facebook page

    Program extra HISS keys

    They do not have the HISS key. You can just get a fresh cut key made.

    Grinding gears

    First off check that you are using it correctly. You need to hold the throttle open while you give the shifter a firm and quick push into gear. Quick shifters work better at higher revs, if you are changing gears at 3000rpm you are better off using clutch. If this is the way you do it and it's grinding, than there is a problem.
  7. It should be. The heat needed to discolor the old fuse holder would probably have burned skin or at least been painful. Once the Oxgard is on hand, I would go over each connector, ground and fuse with it. A tooth pick will do to apply it, though I use a dental tool with a flat blade that works well.

    Grinding gears

    I installed the Honda quickshifter about 300 miles ago and now I've had a few instances where the shift from 2nd to 3rd grinds, and I mean grinds.. Either I don't know how to use this thing or there's an issue. Any idea what's going on?
  9. Yesterday
  10. OK I switched the battery harness out and have the bike running right now. The fuse B holder is warm. I can hold it all day without it getting uncomfortable. Is this OK?
  11. On my harness I first checked the voltage at the ECU, there was a specific pin to check according to the manual. After that worked my way back through the connectors and specifically found corrosion at the red connector which is the one that feeds power to/from the right bar pod (starter, kills switch). With this cleaned I had full battery voltage at the ECU and the misfire was gone. This happened any time the revs were up over 4k whether hot or cold.
  12. Straight bolt on.

    Program extra HISS keys

    So am I correct in my reading comprehension that the USA Version of the 6th Gen VFRs do not have a HISS Key? Having trouble locating the Key right now and looking at options in case I have to replace it.

    Staintune re-release

    I bought my 6th gen brand new just so I could install Staintunes. And because 2005 Winning Red is the best color ever put on a VFR. :)

    I'm still on the original tensioners at 66k miles. You may want to pick up a spare stator, as they tend to go out at around 50k. I've had to replace mine twice already.

    Welcome to the asylum. You obviously have great taste in mc's. You've come to the best place for Honda V4 inspiration, motorcycle-riding-story lies, bovine droppings and other assorted kool stuff.

    Neato. Welcome to the club. My tensioners were fine at 42k miles, but YMMV.

    Hello all, New vfr owner here. I picked up my black 2006 abs model a couple weeks ago and I've been enjoying it. I wanted a vfr for a long time and since getting mine I've been trying to gain as much knowledge as possible. So far I removed the pc3 usb that the bike came with in favor of a pc5 with autotune. I have previously installed this setup on my vtwin cruiser and it made me a fan. Bike is approaching the 32k mark, so I plan to remove and refurbish the chain tensioners, which doesn't look too difficult based on my YouTube viewing. Also was a little curious if anyone's just opted to just install a manual tensioner so they don't have to mess with it again?? My cruiser is a Kawasaki mean streak.

    VARIABLE9’s V4 VFR VICTORY

    I thought it was some crazy MadMax horn arrangement! Got it now. As as for the electrics, what most people don’t understand is that most settings on pressure washers are for taking graffiti off concrete and removing paint from battleships. Not cleaning vehicles. Check out above, it’s for his adapted auto unit cruise control.

    VARIABLE9’s V4 VFR VICTORY

    What is this witchcraft? What is the purpose of that mod? What was wrong with OEM? Am I correct in understanding that vacuum doesn't CONTROL our throttle, but is a byproduct of twisting the throttle as the butterfly valves open, sucking in more air, venturi effect, etc.???

    Added a 2008 VFR 800 to the stable

    LOL. There was a lad who went by "Skidz" on the SV Portal so I had to ask. Cheers!
  23. Hello, I have been doing a bit of preliminary research into the top box carriers for the 2014 VFR800 and have been told that the 1200 OEM carrier will fit (only considering this because I really like the look of the 1200 carrier) but I was wondering if anyone can confirm or deny this, thanks in advance (also if this has been discussed previously feel free to remove this)

    knock on rev

    Nice, this is exactly what I was hoping for. I'll look at this next, still getting my head round working on a bike, it's my first and whilst I've done loads to cars the confined space is something new to me.

    PCV Base Setting

    Simple fix 😛. But with how often I’m in there it would be nice to block off for the space when working on the engine.

    knock on rev

    Just remove the entire PAIR system and use a set of Mello Dude's block off plates to seal up the valve chamber. My 08 VFR800 had this mod, along with O2 eliminators, flapper & snorkel (yes, I liked the increase in intake noise when I opened the throttle ) removal and ran much, much better at low revs/low throttle settings than when standard. You could ride in on the throttle at 1500rpm, manoeuvring/turning without the use of the clutch.
