  1. Past hour
  2. Looks like weather will be okay at least for the majority of the day. I'll be at the hotel around 8:30 and look for the other bikes.

    Hypothetical Question

    I would never allow a test ride unless it was someone I knew personally. I’ve never had anyone ask either. Probably sold a dozen bikes that way.

    Bein dropped in US

    When they dropped BeIN, I dropped DirecTV and went with Dish Network. I had been with DirecTV for almost 10 years, and they gave us no notification, no "please bear with us, and have a month of free HBO", nothing. I just happened to notice that BeIN wasn't listed on my guide anymore. I called to cancel the next morning. I had a Dish Network pay-as-you go account in my RV, so now I have them at the house too.

    I tend to agree with you on drop-in LED bulbs, but for my money, most projectors (even OEM) have the opposite problem. That nice sharp line looks cool, but I'd rather have a more gradual cut-off. I've been thinking about a quad beam setup: a set of drop in LED H4's to fill in paired with a set of LED projectors for the depth, all with a slightly below stock current load. Another less than useful trend I've noticed in vehicular lighting is the love everyone has for the "cold" hue. They seem brighter because the glare is more irritating to our eyes, but if you actually look at what they illuminate on the road, the only thing that is more visible is reflectors, road signs and the lines on the pavement. The further into the spectrum you go, the more it gets like a black-light: you can really see something white, but that black lab that just ran out in the road is entirely invisible. Just my own opinion with no data to back it up, but I'm fairly confident scientific testing would support me. Edit: Oh, and I haven't done crap with my VFR today... this was a guitar project day instead. Gotta juggle the hobbies!

    Down for the count...R/R is the suspect

    What Rectifier did you order? If it's that Rick's one I see on the site, cancel the order. Abort. Abort. Abort. The best bet is a SH847, or at the very least a FH020AA. With a kit from roadstercycle you bypass the stock wiring harness entirely, negating a need for a VFRness as well.
  8. Yesterday
  9. It's a MAP sensor. I went in there to clean everything and, on a whim, rerean the diagnostic. Blink blink. So, it was probably on the way out when I did this test before but still tested ok. That was more than 5000 miles ago. Now it definitely tests bad. I have one on the way. Good call @GreginDenver

    NC30 Hub on my 99 VFR800?

    My 99 VFR800 was modified with an NC30 rear single lug nut hub. The chain needs to bee replaced. Wondered if anyone can advise me on the rear sprocket. I am trying to source a new rear sprocket of same quality. 520 pitxh 43t hard anodized aluminum. I guess 40t is the common size.

    Rear brake rotor replacement

    Thanks for all the help ( Big thanks to JHZ) everything whent mostly alright, though the axel assembly was a bit of prick to get out (lots of hammering was involved), but the new rotor and pads are in and nothing was broken in the process, so I would call that a win.
  16. Thank you, amazingly I was not able to find any thing before this , but today it came up right away. I bought also the knights with rubber for some thing like 190$ , I hope they work fine for me. I am also from southern cal, if there is a riding announcement count me in. Ride safe/Ride long.
  17. In the American VFR, the low beam light is on all the time. The rocker switch is only for the high beam. But the lights automatically cut out when you hit the starter. Near as I can tell by actually um, looking at the lights, they both run all the time, low beam and high beam, like in a car. Low beam: High beam: And if I'm reading the wiring diagram right, then it says the same thing (or not). It looks like both the Bu/Bl leads and the W/Bl leads are joined before any switches. So, I am thinking I should probably replace the lamps as a matching pair, not separately as I'd been planning. BTW Dutchy, are you parked on like, the railroad tracks? Is that a good idea in those parts?

    Michelin Road 5

    I have a few hundred miles on mine now, after replacing the factory tires on my 8th gen. The Road 5s have been very confidence-inspiring, especially in the wet. I had to make a freeway run in the pouring rain immediately after they were mounted, and I was astonished by how much better they felt than the factory tires.

    What type of riding do you use your VFR for?

    That is a sweet bike I test rode one and loved it. But it’s out of my price range unfortunately.
  21. I am selling a 1985 VF1000R First and foremost, I want it to be clear, this bike needs additional work to finish. I've had this bike for 6 or 7 years and need to realize I'm not going to give it the time it deserves. Bike starts and runs, goes turns and stops. It is wearing a fair-condition set of rattle can painted fairings, and comes with a complete set of spare fairings and a spare tank. All stock except the regulator/rectified (Yamaha unit I believe) and period-correct Yoshimura pipes. I would really like to get this bike into the hands of an owner who will appreciate it and get it back on the road. It is an occasion to ride, sounds amazing, rare as hen's teeth. I don't need to tell anyone on here, this is a piece of superbike history. Bike is in southern Maine. $1,250 firm. Note: Those photos are from last season. I managed to misplace one of the mesh side panels, I expect to find it before the bike sells though.
  22. Last week
  23. Time to let her go. She needs to run free, not live cooped up in my garage. https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/mcy/d/yellow-2000-honda-vfrmiles/6697140100.html
  24. Time for this lovely to find a new home. Details with pics in CL ad. https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/mcy/d/yellow-2000-honda-vfrmiles/6697140100.html
  25. AFAIK, they are not the same. These pistons are only used in the 4th gen VFR. That is by going off of part numbers in the parts catalog. He might have one that fits. that might be the same as the VF700C, which he has listed. K-68. Send an email, pictures, and dimensions, and he should be able to let you know. http://jbmindustries.com/Dimensions.html

    Any News of a 2019 new model???

    Since Honda positioned the new Goldwing to pick up old ST1300 customers, we appear to be without a new mid-weight sport tourer, especially in the US. I would love to see a Honda alternative to the new R1250RT. No, that's not a typo. The 2019s will be a 1250 model.

    No Electrical Power

    A dirty kill switch took out my 6th gen, but I had a lot of warning before it got ugly. I'm suspecting a wiring failure if a new battery wouldn't start it. The ignition switch could be the issue.

    Bad battery cell or someting worse?

    Need to have it load tested for sure. Pretty much all the chain auto parts store will do it free.
