    6th-gen Supercharger Kit

    Hi Igor, I have this file for the A&A SC kit. I remember actually getting a map in Turkey as well, but I can't be sure if this is that map. The one done in Turkey, was probably a little bit richer due to different gas. I'd imagine it could at least work temporarily, at least until you get it to a dyno shop which I'd recommend. I sold my SC kit to very kind gentleman in Australia, he was also a member here. I don't think he installed it though. Good luck with your build. Arrow A&A-VFR-SC.1.mpp

    "There goes the neighborhood......." The 2nd video shows the "milky oil sludge" on the clear clutch cover well. Disappears once the engine/oil is heated up.

    1999 VFR800 Clutch

    I can confirm the above. Having coached 100+ people through removing & replacing their clutch covers, none have had to do more than simply parking the bike on the side stand to avoid spilling more than a couple drops of oil. It helps to let the bike stand for a few hours after running, to allow residual oil fling to pool in the pan. Tipping Mr. RC45 over on a shop stool... that takes some balls Larry! Lol

    1999 VFR800 Clutch

    I forget to mention the option of laying the bike on its side for clutch maintenance... simply lay the bike at an angle to shift the oil level at an angle to remove the clutch cover without spillage...
  10. Keef, the originator of this mod used 1.5mm shim. Perhaps I should have ordered 2mm but 1.5 works for everyone else so should be fine for me too.

    1999 VFR800 Clutch

    On the master cylinder back the 3 bolts a few turns to see if your no play suspicions are the problem... you can even test hop it but be prepare for major clutch drag during shifting... If the Clutch is slipping I offer a way to save $240.00 in new clutch parts by investing in some sweat equity... deglazing clutch plates ain't nothing new... no sir... back in the 70s it use to be part of every savvy rider's maintenance plan... and for some reason that all change during the 90s... why fix what you can buy new is the what you hear now a days... but if your interested in making your clutch bite good as new then roll up your sleeves and read on... Inspect the friction plates for glazing... make sure you have plenty of material to work with... check the manual for clutch thickness range... First removed the contaminants with something like Acetone... then lay each plate over a 600 grit black dry emory paper and rotate in a circle... you're just busting the glaze... don't get carried away remove too much material... You should end up with a friction plate looks dull like a new one as opposed to a shinny glazed one... recheck thickness... Next check the pressure plates for bluing caused by localized heat... make sure they are not warped... the manual does not state a thickness range... now removed the contaminants with something like Acetone and wire wheeled them to erased the blue and also to generally scuff up the surface... you should end up with a dull surface free of Blue marks... All in all there are no reports of a new clutch slipping no matter what oil the owner selected... but around the 25K to 35K mile mark your clutch maybe glazed enough that oil choice affects their performance... deglazing brings back the plates to the new condition were the oil doesn't matter again... it's your choice...

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    it makes no sense, why wouldn't they just use the same 38od for the primary, we know 38 fits at the cylinder head. But I guess we'll just have to wait to see what those dyno figures say

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    while I believe that it does neck up to 36mm, is 29mm a match for the cyl head or is someone smoking crack at BW causing exhaust gas to rapidly slow down after it exits the cyl head?

    1999 VFR800 Clutch

    I don't think it's the clutch plates... First thing to check is the clutch push rod. If it is rusty at all polish it and put it back in. Seems to be a common problem with the 5th gen by looking at forums. A rusty push rod will make it stick to the oil seal which will hinder the return travel after using the clutch. Second thing to check is the very small return hole in the clutch master cylinder, if you like me forgot about it when rebuilding the master cylinder. You'll find it in the bottom of the master cylinder beneath a steel bracket, just remove that bracket with thin pliers and clean out the hole. A messy hole will keep the hydraulic pressure up (just like you thought). If that didn't help continue with the clutch springs, you check them by following these simple actions: Put the bike on the side stand. Remove right hand fairing. Remove right side engine cover. Remove clutch springs and measure them. Are they within spec? By how much? You could try to change them and test again. No need to change oil, and if you're lucky and you didn't break the oil seal for the engine cover you don't need to change that either for a quick test. If the springs are within spec by a fair margin you could continue your dissection by removing the clutch and steel plates and check them for wear. But I think the above steps are well worth to try before that, and a more probably source of your fault then the clutch itself. Edit: Another thing to check if you get that far into the clutch is notches in the clutch basket from the clutch plates. Those could also mess up the operation of your clutch. You could gently file them down and rebuild.

    1999 VFR800 Clutch

    Over the summer, I rebuilt my clutch master cylinder. Recently, the clutch has been slipping under high load, but only when the engine water temp is over 190 F. The clutch lever has zero play no matter how I adjust the thumbscrew on the handle. It makes me think the clutch plates are not fully engaging because the clutch slave cylinder still has hydraulic oil pressure on it. If this is the case, is there any way to adjust this condition? Possibly too much oil in the master cylinder? Maybe the clutch plates are shot and I just don't want to admit it? The bike just rolled past 20,000 miles, I bought it used with 16,000 on it. Any thoughts/advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Awesome! Thank you so much! I appreciate the warm welcome from everyone!! I was almost late to work this morning since I spent most of the night researching what I need for this bike.

    Welcome, I 100% agree on the SH847 kit from roadstercycle. It's the #1 thing I'd do on any VFR purchase prior to the 8th gen.

    Well the sellers remark about a known plague may be somewhat accurate. The electrical system has seen it's fair share of gremlins, so you may want to start with checking the wiring harness for overheated and/or melted connectors. There are thousands of posts about the subject but to cut a long story short, go to www.roadstercycle.com and take a look at the SH847 or FA020AA regulator rectifiers and perhaps their wiring kits as well, you'll thank yourself (and/or the forum) later. Like Marriedman said, anyone who restores bikes his alright in my book as well. With that, I'll say good luck and keep us posted as to your progress and of course, if you have any questions, post them up, plenty of knowledge here. PS. If you don't have the Honda factory service manual, go to the downloads section of the forum and grab it.

    I think you may find that the 5th gen VFR (98-01) to be a very different feeling bike compared to the 6th gen (02-09). I did not like my '07 either but I still miss my '99. Anyone who restores and rescues a machine is OK in my book! Welcome to the site and post some pictures of your progress once you start!
  26. Hello everyone!! I am a sucker for abused or neglected motorcycles, which leads to my most recent acquisition... A 1998 VFR800. The previous owner said it's fast as hell and will wheelie in first second AND third. Some of the things he said made me cringe and I couldn't help but save this poor bike. He kept telling me how fast this bike is and I didn't have the heart to tell him that I have a Blackbird at home in the garage. He jumped the bike off with his truck and had it there idling when I arrived. He tried to ride it down the street but it died, telling me it has the common electrical issues that seem to plague VFRs. The blown fork seals, the clip master-link red eBay chain, missing bar end, and rusty hardware begged me to save her. This is my 29th motorcycle, and I have a passion for giving motorcycles a better home. I also have in the garage- 1999 Blackbird 1985 GPZ900r 2006 KLX250s 2001 Harley Dyna Low Rider I've had a lot of random bikes over the years. 4 different Honda 919s, 3 Ninja 250s, a FJR1300, 1996 FZR600, ST1100, and to be honest I never really liked the VFRs. I test rode a 2004 model and hated it. The blackbird is still the best motorcycle I've ever owned. Second favorite motorcycle is the GPZ900r. I'll get the VFR going and probably use it as a commuter. If any of you are on Instagram, I'm on there as FilipinoAV8R and I have a boatload of motorcycle pics.
