  2. Ahem, you Dutchy guys are confusing. BUT, you have EXCELLENT taste in bikes! 😁 Someday - God willing and the creek don't rise - we're all going to tip a beer together. Sold! Happy to say she's going to a very nice fellow who loves V4's AND VFR's. 🍻 Glenn

    Great shot, my back yard. PCH to Tomales to Dillon a great ride whether from the north or south. Love those pipes!

  7. I get a similar issue from time-to-time. I 'fix' it by turning the bike off, gear to neutral, kill switch to off, bike on, kill switch to on. Usually works first time.

    Tires!

    Considering that I got around 18000 out of a BT-020 rear (or was it an 021, I forget), and in light of that fact that many riders on various forums were surprised I got more than eight or ten thou, I think it's entirely possible I could squeeze 7500 out of a Q3. YMMV. Literally!

    Tires!

    Regularly used to kill sports tyres on my t595 in around 2.5k miles. Bt016 & pilot powers.

    Tires!

    I suppose, at 12 MPH, on well-worn shiny asphalt. one could possibly go 7500 miles on a Q3 rear. Otherwise, not so much. I once killed a rear in under 2500 miles on my 6th gen (front lasted twice as long).

    Or they are riding very conservatively.

    Tires!

    No, Roadsmart 2 rear, Q3 front. (Anyone telling you they can get 7500 miles on a Q3 REAR on a VFR is lying to you.) I've never gotten more than 3500 miles on a Q3 rear on any of my bikes, but I am a little hard on tires, with lots of time in canyons.
  13. yeah thats my fear...but you're probably right
  14. Hello all. Bike's almost done, but I've noticed that I might have some form of electrical issue. So what's happening is that the fuel pump doesn't seem to whirr anymore when the ignition is on run. I went to put the battery back on, there was a spark coming out of the negative end when I reconnected it. Main fuse went, changed for a new 30A one, the other fuses looked okay.Starter motor engages but no fuel going into the engine, hence no start. HISS LED indicator doesn't seem to illuminate either so I'm guessing there's a bad connection somewhere. Anyone got any ideas on what could be an issue? Connectors on the fuel pump looked okay, went to clean the connectors. Maybe I haven't cleaned the right one yet?
  15. Wife and I will be there. Looking forward to seeing you all again
  16. If you meant battery cables, then that is probably your culprit. Blown fuse, burnt wires, fried ECU, list goes on. Or since it was put away for the winter, mice/squires/angry wife. Either way, it's probably electrical.
  17. Good troubleshooting, Kev. That dang BAS had to be from the dark side, to lurk in functionality for two years before haunting you. I followed Duc2V4's lead and ordered a set of AS3 hoses along with their clamp set for my 5th gen. Seb probably paid McMaster-Carr 15% of what AS3 charges for their clamp set. The AS3 parts look good, but I have not installed them yet.

    It just needs a little love.

    Very interesting project, Halfrider. I don't think I've ever seen a bare metal clutch cover before - looks good. Your 5th gens are cool. Which front end did you use for the naked bike?

    Them some fun roads, be safe!
  20. Thanks Marsman! I'll bet its not. So can I assume I want it in position 1?
  21. I whipped out a set of exhaust guards for my soft bags. Something easily put on and taken off. Still need to paint them.... or make another set where the welds aren't so embarrassing! Started with flat stock and some small tubing. Using map gas, hammer, vice, cutting wheel and a sharpie, I was surprised on how well they came out for the first try. First bent the tabs that go on the Givi mounting bolt towards the front. Then bent the tubing to follow the lines of the exhaust. Bent the upper/rear tab to "lock" into the Givi mount, keeping the entire piece from rocking inward. the one forward nut is all that is needed to remove/replace to take the guard on and off.
  22. Now's the time to throw in some internals from Daugherty Motorsports!

    Well, sure is nice to know that a business rated top notch 11 yrs ago ... is still top notch . Don't see that too often. ACE
  24. Check that you aligned the EGCA pulley properly after you removed the cables. Not 100% sure this would cause an issue with the ECU, but easy to correct and try.
  25. Wow! You guys know each other. I get this question all the time when I'm out of the country - "Hey, I know John Doe from Canada. Do you know him?" It looks like you were walking redslut home. Glenn

    Hard to beleive that this was once a pristine motorcycle off the showroom floor . I compression tested with a squirt of oil and it bumped up readings to @200psi on all cylinders, is that of any significance? Hey MarroonC, thanks for the offer, how familiar are you with these engines?, I am just past Hornsby. Black paint on the chain! Removed the exhaust, rear fat ass subframe and linked brakes, the bracketry for the link brakes was Honda at there over engineering best. Considered putting a Triumph 675 rear with undertail exhaust but then came up with this. Original seat, raised, diy subframe , fibreglass undertailand and 5gen staintune. I have a thing for 5 gens, clothed and naked.
