  2. Hello, In my search for a gear shifter/pedal for my '91 VFR, I came upon this: bike-parts-honda.com Has anyone had any dealings with them? If so, good or bad feedback? Thanks, Mike
  3. Motorenzo, Thanks. I'll see if I need to resort to that. I'm currently trying to track down a new unit. I've fired off details to bike-parts-honda.com Has anyone dealt with this online organization?? Thanks again Motorenzo.

    High resistance caused by corrosion will overheat and kill the thing. you can see the corrosion starting here on the top left terminal.....greenish.
  5. Yes and no--respectively! It was a Hondaline accessory in the USA, and I bought one for my FL ca.1990. Sadly, the 4th gen centerstands are incompatible with the 3rd gens. Ciao,

  7. Heres a trick I have done a few times in my 61 years of working on and riding these 2 wheeled machines. Remove the shifter from the shaft, remove the pinch bolt, put the shifter in a good vise with the slot of the shifter where the bolt goes thru in a position where you can get a thin cut off wheel or a thin file into the slot. Remove a few thousands of the inside material so the pinch bolt can squeeze it to the shaft tighter than before. Good idea to replace the bolt with a new one as well. I have done this mainly on dirt bikes back thru the years. They get beat on really bad in desert racing and endures, not so much with street bikes unless they have been run and used in a loose condition. The price is right!!!!!!!!!! Good Luck, Renzo

    That red wire feeding your headlight and fuel pump fuses goes back to your main Fuse B 30amp and straight off the R/R. Have a good look at the single joiner of this wire somewhere near the main Fuse B. From memory this join can suffer badly from a hi resistance joint causing issues. See your wiring diagram. Is your bike wiring stock standard? Have either of the 20a fuses for the headlight or fuel pump blown?
  10. Thanks Cogswell. The part has been discontinued by Honda. I've been checking classifieds and such. Keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks again, Mike

    2018 VFRD SUMSUM 4

    I'm just an analog guy in a digital world, so could somebody tell me where I find the directions to do this? I'm a PC guy at work and am on the wife's MAC at home, which I'm sure is part of my issue. Thanks.
  14. PCV 2002-2005 catless map. 46-48mpg highway View File This map is for the 2002-2005 VFR800. mods are K&N filter snorkel mod, 1999 catless headers, stock mufflers completely gutted, and the 02 delete or optimizers. Runs very smooth and gets around 48mpg on the highway. I'm going to be checking the WOT fueling when my wideband gets here. The current 100% fuel setting is from a dyno tuner in wisconsin but I want to check it for myself. I also have the acc pump activated sensitivity 65.9 30 revs and 15% fuel.. Took it to the 1/8 mile strip with this and ran a 7.40 at 101 and that was my first time running it at the track. I will update the WOT fueling after I get the wideband.

    I just came in from the shed and the wires that feed those two line to the fuse box are smoked. How it made it home I'll never know.Thank you Gentle Men for your input.

    That could be because Dan invented a mechanical device that can actually bend space and time. At least it seems like it can . . .
  17. Sounds like it's possible that at some point in its life the lever was replaced with one that's not correct. Whatever the reason - wear, incorrect part, etc, it will be far cheaper and easier to replace it than deal with the shaft if the splines round off. Placing foil around the shaft is just a band aid that in the long run will probably cause more problems than it solves. YMMV

    The 2018 SumSum4 Ride icon (should) be in the ride icon gallery. For ease of use, attached here too. When placing in your signature, dbl click to edit it down to 85 x 85 pixels.

    The ignition switch itself may be worn out.

    I got to checking voltages and there is .10 of a volt at both the fuse for injection and headlights, all others have 12 volts. Where would the voltage be lost. Battery voltage is present at the ignition switch.
  25. Hey gang, I've a '91 VFR. The gear selector has been slipping on the spline. The pinch bolt is at maximum tightness and I don't want to strip it. I've removed the selector, cleaned both the selector and the spline for best contact. Replaced and tightened yet the selector still slips. Aside from buying a new selector, any suggestions to ensure the pinch bolt does it's job? One suggestion I did get was foil tape on the spline to increase the diameter of the spline. Any other ideas / solutions are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mike

  27. With or without bearings and seals? I have the one that came off of my 5 Gen but I believe the bearings and seals have been removed. I won’t be home until tomorrow morning so I couldn’t weigh it until then.
