  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,

  9. 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.

  14. 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.

    Seeking Paint Removal Advice

    I spent 40 years of my life as a professional auto painter,specialising in bikes. ive done many jobs like the OPs. Most of them weren't stolen, they were simply crap jobs by a weekend warrior with a rattle can. Most of them needed repainting,some were recoverable. I've given the best advice I can based on a lifetime of professional experience.
  16. after see this happen to quite a few bikes... with all due respect to BLS. drain the oil.. remove the clutch plates.. soak them in new oil.. gas in the oil literally cleans the hell out off the bottom end of the motor and the frictions plates. inspect and lube up the starter clutch. look on the inner (part #5) and see if its CRACKED.. DONT loose the 3 small spring,or the 3 caps..or the 3 rollers!! yes, the roller in the pic are facing the wrong way.. they are just there to show proper location..
  17. $60 off a set of T31 eh? That's very nice! Thanks for sharing

  21. Thanks for the advice guys - I mean it. Terry, I’m not sure you can hire a rattle gun in the UK? Not that I know of anyway. I could just pull the swingarm and take it to the local garage as a last resort. JZH, very clever what you did to that loose swingarm. And yes, I did unstake the nut. I REALLY unstaked it with a big @ss chisel and may have ruined it. VFROZ, you’re right about that bar being a bit weak but it’s a solid steel bar. Took all my weight jumping on it to bend like that. Scaffold tube is definitely stronger so I might grab one when family obligations allow. Thanks gents. Stray

    Tapered Head Bearing Help

    Yes yes I dont think the bottom the cup has fully seated, so dam hard to get too will check, if not... I also have another theory, will get back. 🙃
  23. I imagine that it would cost quite a bit to ship a gas tank to Canada. Thanks for offering to help though. I dont think the picture conveys the concaveness of the tank very well. There is at least a couple liters less fuel space available, but if you guys think it would give it a "unique" battle-scared look I might just smooth it out and respray the whole bike. Can anyone confirm or deny whether the 750 tank will fit? Ive got my eyes on a parts bike for cheap @Dutchy @Zeta

    Gear Indicator

    Thanks all for the thoughts! I'm not particularly bothered by it, but for the fact that it just seems to have started happening in the last few weeks. And that makes me think "something" has changed between 0 miles and 7000 miles. And it's not my technique, so I'm puzzled. It clears with a quick on and off of the key, so it's not a huge deal, but if there's a fix, I'm going to try to get it done while the warranty is still live.

    87 700 fuel pump relay intermittent failure?

    You know, I haven't checked the stator (ohms) since I swapped the plug. One of the issues I'm having is finding out if the stator supplies spark to the plugs (as I understand some of them do) or if it just provides a charge for the battery. The battery is still charging fine so it can't be completely fried (if it's possible for it to be partially fried). The issue for me has finally come down to: I have no confidence that the bike is reliable. I love riding it, but as a primary commuter bike I need that reliability. It may be the stator, but there may be something else. Hopefully, I can find out everything that is wrong.

    Anyone installed the delkevic headers?

    I did install them. My original headers got heavily corroded, previous owner rode bike in winter time and salts unfortunately eat them and other parts. So i had to replace all exhaust system, restored radiators and replaced rear thermal guards. For thing to be done right way, I installed Power Commander and autotune. Unfortunately O2 sensor on autotune was faulty (bought it second hand), so i wait for replacement to arrive next week. After that ill take a ride to nearest Dynojet center and will polish things up. After that ill gladly share any power gains (or loss) and impressions if you like. Now bike sounds like nothing before, beefy base not to loud, but all who listened do appreciate. I forgot to mention that bike is equipped with Akropovic can from factory. Did quite big work with bike, made full suspension service at company who has suspension testing stand. After that bike feels amazing and i can compare, did arround 6k km last season around Europe. Fitted with Micheling pilot power tires that also adds to the great feeling.
  28. No worries, lets know how you go with the hardware removal. Cheers
