  2. @MooseMoose I enjoyed reading through that. Angry octopus LOL 😂 I'm up for a fairly major refurb on my '99 later this year (although I'm also swaping in a lower km engine at the same time, hence "major" refurb.) In short, I'll be bolting in a Y2K engine, with '99 throttle bodies, and doing the following: 1) All coolant hoses/o-rings/thermostat replaced. I already have this kit (AS3 silicon hoses/clamps, and new OEM thermostat/o-rings). 2) All throttle body hoses replaced in silicon - possibly with the exception of the two "elbowed" hoses. Between the '99 and Y2K throttle bodies I have, I suspect I'll be able to source two still-pliable hoses... 3) I've previously thrown MAP sensor codes, travelling from Canberra (640M elevation), to the coast (0M elevation), so may need to replace that at the same time. 4) While I'm there, I may as well do the FPR as well, which leads me to the question I have...Will a Blackbird FPR bolt into the VFR throttle body assembly? I ask not because the BB FPR supposedly operates at higher pressure, but because they are cheaper... Happy to grab the VFR one, but if I can save a few bucks along the refurb path, I'm always happy to... Edit: And can someone tell me why the VFR MAP sensor is listed at ~3 times the price of the Blackbird one? (Or if the Blackbird one will fit the VFR wiring harness 😉 )

  4. Here's a clearer picture. Bolt ripped in half. Pretty sure that's not supposed to happen.

    Gas mileage on a 98 5th gen

    As said, it seems that every '98 owner in Italy gets bad mileage, regardless of the injectors conditions or the speed. Y2K catalyzed models are known for having a MUCH lower fuel consumption. The bike runs great anyway.

    Cam reinstall - timing help needed

    It IS a concern, though I don't know how much. And the corroding is a concern. Somewhere in the Honda manual it says to NOT use carb cleaner on the throttlebody as the bores are coated in a molybdenum something or other to prevent corrosion. I didn't mention it because you're well past that stage, but yeah. Make sure to do anti corrosion. Also very smart to do the o rings. Mine were a crusty mess. It's a 5th gen, and 20 years takes its toll on rubber, regardless. They're a cheap, easy change if you have the throttlebody off anyway.

    Replace bulbs on a 5th gen

    If you switch to LED signal lights, you'll need 1156 and 1157 LED's... You can also get a simple replacement relay to fix the fast flashing issue. Google the relay, superbrightleds.com sells them. It's a simple relay with only two wires and it works Great! https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/flashers-load-resistors/electronic-led-flasher-relays-for-motorcycle/787/842/ I just upgraded to LED lights all around on my 3rd Gen. I also bought yellow LED lights and Red LED lights for the tail lights. It looks Great!

    Video "History of the VFR"

    Overall, the video was a pretty good effort. He got most of it right! But if you're doing a history of Honda V4s, or even VFRs, you really have to differentiate better between Honda production bikes and HRC race bikes. The production bikes are easy: From the VFR750RH RC30 in 1987 to the VFR750FL RC36 in 1990, there were only five other 650-899cc Honda production models: NT650J-M (Hawk GT/Bros) RC31, VT800CJ (Shadow) RC32, NTV650J-L (Revere) RC33, PC800K-L/R-W (Pacific Coast 800) RC34 and VFR750PK-R/P2K-R (Police) RC35. HRC has manufactured all of Honda's works racing motorcycles since about 1982, but has also modified Honda's homologation models (e.g., VFR750R RC30) for various production-based racing series. The "VFR750K" is a case in point. This was not a production model, so calling this RC24-based HRC special the "VFR750RK" is a bit of a nonsense. There was already a VFR750RK RC30 in 1989. Maybe the HRC racer should have been called the VFR750FKR or something? Ciao, JZH
  10. SP's have one gremlin....... If the sun is shining from behind while parked up, the screen's inside will act like a parabolic mirror and melt the cockpit... Mine came with that mark and I camouflaged it with a wee sticker. But, jolo and all that....

    eliminating VTEC on 6th Gen

    I am sure I have read about this being tried before and the bike ran miserably. Wish I could remember where.

  13. Thanks highside, yep just using Mohawk's pic to visually check the posi of MTB o2 sensor. OP header will have two O2 sensor bosses at 2000-2009 OEM header's O2 sensor locations: one O2 sensor boss on secondary tube after left front/left rear primary merge, one O2 sensor boss on secondary tube after right front/right rear primary merge Cheers
  14. Thanks I really appreciate your input, yes I’m hoping for best but preparing for worst... This helps me with things to check... I’ll post when I get it sorted.

    New guy- vf750f rebuild

    if you haven't heard the engine run, i'd suggest that you make a compression test before anything else. you'll also need to remove cam covers and check for damage to cam lobes or bearings. if compression numbers aren't good enough, your project will get alot more complex and expensive. good luck !

    5th Gen Engine Modifications

    Anything new going on?
  27. Good point you raise FJ12Ryder. It did appear that I might have been getting some air via the threads, but that didn't concern me, I had a reasonable flow of fluid without opening the bleeder too much. End result was no spongy feel just as you'd expect for a good bleed process. Any air drawn through via the bleeder threads is probably not going to cause an issue IMO.

    serious run off

    I honestly think the 4th Gen VFR in Italian Red is the nicest looking mass produced bike ever made. Sure I'm biased, but still I never get tired looking at them. Great pic!

    1984 Miniceptor Refresh

    While I'd normally agree with you, in this application it's called for and the sealed grip ends will help keep the bar clean. Grease is called for in the FSM for this one and with regular maintenance will not be an issue. Maybe if the bar were refinished in the future to remove the rust and create a new smooth surface, we could skip the grease.
