  2. Hi Guys, I don't know if I have to go somewhere else to say HI, as I'm new to this forum. I have problems with my VFR since I bought it (used) 3 years ago (or four, who would count ;p). But most currently problem is about not working fuel pump (no starting noise after turn on ignition) and vfr doesn't start. Where should I start working on that problem? I had enough of mechanics as they take money and still there are problems with my bike on and on... Here photo of mine bike taken by me:

    Center Stand vs Pitbull Stand

    Have the Pit Bull. I never had a bike with a center stand so why start now. To me it's like adding a boat anchor on the bike.

    4th gen fuel leak - fuel link pipe

    had mine replaced last year but used genuine parts probably payed way too much though
  8. Pulled my 4th gen Aussie spec VFR750 out of storage after 5 years and working through the issues - last started about 3 years ago before battery died. Carbs were ok with resin or stuck floats etc so Got her running but fuel leaking from one of the fuel link pipe o-rings. Anyone know what size these are and where I can get a set? Thanks heaps Flying Deck Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Selling my beautiful 2014 VFR. Super condition, only 5900 miles. Sargent custom seat, DAM SS exhaust, forks and shock upgraded by Daugherty. Lots of little extras. Honda heated grips. Matching Honda handbags, tank bag. All in perfect working order. Fast, handles great. Decent PR4’s. Ready to ride away for $6500. I’m in Beaverton (Portland) Oregon. PM me here if you’d like info.

    Factory Pro EVO Shift Star kit

    I had a 3rd gen for 80-90K miles and shifting on the 5th is rougher. Not a problem, just not as good. I was able to pop down gears without the throttle and it was smooth and consistent, and upshifts were super consistent and quick. I shift the way Jason Pridmore taught me and he could do clutchless downsifts on a 4th gen, on a stand with the rear wheel in the air, that are so smooth you can't even see any chain lash. I rode on the back with him at Laguna Seca and you only knew he downshifted because you could hear it, there wasn't the slightest bit of roughness you could feel regardless of how hard or gentle his braking, and I actively practiced for years to try and achieve that level of smoothness. I can still do OK on the current bike, but the downshifts are just not as easy to do. This isn't lazy, it's me actively practicing my shifting and noticing a difference. So, yeah, if you're fine, good on ya. Enjoy your bike. But don't discount our perceptions. I also have a busted bolt (one of the LONG ones on the clutch actuator that the previous owner overtorqued), so I have to pull all that crap off anyway to drill it out. So the decision is easier for me. If I'm doing that work imma fuck with the shift star while I'm at it.

    Factory Pro EVO Shift Star kit

    Hmm... Can't say I ever felt the shifting was a problem at any time in the 10 years I've owned a VFR. Stock setup always seems smooth to me. Very very few false neutrals over that time. I do agree that lazy shifting habits could be a cause of perceived problems. Fresh high quality oil and purposeful shifting technique should be SOP (standard operating procedure). The kit looks to be high quality though. I would like to think if there is/was a problem, Honda would have updated it over the life of the bike. Anyway I think i'll spend the money on a MOSFET Rectifier/Regulator. To each his own I say.
  13. If there is an engine that is running with no issues, why take a chance on an engine that sitting gathering dust and spiderwebs just because the km number is theoretically lower. Unless you are going to strip it fully and go big bore with ported heads and different cams, etc. I don’t see that a few thousand kms is a significant difference when they are known to go 100,000+ miles(!). At 103,000 miles on mine I wouldn’t think of swapping out a full engine. It for sure needed replacing of rubber coolant hoses and gaskets. I’ve got one that’s missing the clutch cover and is rusted all to heck. I’ve got another I fully disassembled that had something corrode the front left cylinder lining. Probably had water sitting in it for years.
  14. Good question boOZZIE - I followed up w K&N 3 times after emailing them the photos of both of their HA-8098 filters and got the run around each time. Their last position statement was that ‘it’s been pushed up to a product manager”, and I haven’t contacted them since before the dyno testing Jan 26. I’ll give it another go.

    Group Buy: Factory Pro Shift Evo Kits

    Does anyone know how much shipping would be to LA?
  16. Looks like a left exit TBR setup. The short link pipe is always stainless, the rest could be regular steel. I would consider buying it if I was close enough. I bet the starter clutch is cracked. I could only expect a $400 return on it.
  17. Hey sfdownhill, Any reply from K&N tech support about the big mouth airfilter, was there a solution for 6g center stand stop and what was Wade's view on 3 bungs? Cheers

    Multiple Bike Disorder (MBD)

    I was thinking in terms of range on a single tank, personally. Tank bag is probably nice for the third or fourth hour on the road. Just that much more to lean against if you have to make a stretch of straight road. When I rode one the first time I found the seating instantly comfortable. Very much a familiar Honda seating position, but it definitely more on your toes, leaned forward some as a track bike should be. Wasn't long before I was comfortable resting with just a little weight on the tank, nestled in there like a monkey humping a football, and totally didn't feel cramped or stretched out.

    2019 VFRD Memorial Spring Ride

    I am hosting an FZ1 event here at home that weekend. Shame we can't be at two places at one time. Well probably not as I couldn't afford the tire expense anyway. Y'all behave, have fun and ride smart.

    Hello MiniCarver, would you like me to ask Marc about just the detent arm and spring thing for you seeing you’ve already got a star? That might save you a few bob. Nice one Lance - got you on the list! Got you in the list adkfinn! Great minds think alike alike on the extra discount - it never hurts to ask for more. We are already nearing 10 kits so by next Friday there will be a great deal of bargaining power on our end. Do me a favour and send contact details by PM (unless you want to deal directly with FP after the order - that’s also cool). Thanks Knute - you’re on the list! Thanks for this, Terry. Exactly this sort of review prompted me to do this.

    Multiple Bike Disorder (MBD)

    Yeah, great buy. Enjoy!. If I had space and saw an RC51 that clean, I'd have it too. They're aggressive compared to VFRs, definitely not a tourer, but one of those bikes that just work wonderfully for what they're meant to do.

    5th Gen Aux Fuel Cell

    Yep. I was pre HID and LED days. Had a set of 910's mounted up front. Later converted those and stocks all into HIDs. It was brilliant!
  25. If I chuck the spare engine in, that may well be something I do with the original one, over some time...
  26. It's a good question. Primarily, as it's a shitload easier to do refurb work with the engine out of the bike. Pick a stack of things to "refurb", purchase them (already started that process). Chuck the engine to be refurbed on a bench, and go to town (so to speak). Meanwhile, the original - working - engine is sitting in the intact bike, able to be ridden around, until the time comes to strip the old one out and replace. That at least was/is the theory.

    5th Gen Aux Fuel Cell

    That would be you, I suppose! I remember following your IB progress all those years ago. I think you had mounted some PIAA 910s or something like that? Pre-HID days... I'm a former Compuserve Ride Forum member...not sure if you were there or (more likely) on the Big List? Ciao, JZH
