I agree there is alot of bs, however I wouldnt start a new thread until testing is finished and production is ready to commence so that the company manufacturing it can be shielded from external interferences

Good call, Seb. We're just now starting the new thread to get a little separation from the history.

boOZZIE, we're going ahead with the new thread so folks interested in this project won't shy away from the 500+ posts and 22 pages of this existing thread. Because there's a ton of data from past efforts here, in the new thread, we will reference this existing thread.

I have been waiting for something to eventuate for a long time, it has been a long time, With regards to headers and getting rid of the cat, I have an RC 46 gen 6.My first road bike was a VF750 FD then some years later a VF1000R then I bought the Gen 6 then I saved for years and got the ultimate an RC 30 and had it painted in Rothmans colours and unfortunately had to sell it... I would personally like to see the exhaust on the Left hand side.as per RC 30 and RVF for tradition. But understand it has to come out out on the right. I cant wait to get rid of the weight of the twin pipes from under the seat and fit a single pipe.

Somebody should link the new page to the VFRD FB page. There are folks there who may not be here.

Good idea Sweeper. Posting a link/info about these headers on FB is on our to do list. I'm a member of FB VFR Owner's group, but didn't know VFRD had it's own FB page. Does VFRD have a dedicated FB page? If so, I'll check w Duc2V4 and see about getting us up there, too.

 

Here's a link to the VFRD "New headers' thread. Just pointing folks toward it in hopes of lightening thread-tending duties a bit. Thanks!

I think one of the things that has slowed the chatter here is that a lot happens on VFRD FB. It is obviously more on the social side of things VFR.

I really hope he did. Jeff didn’t give me too many details on Friday. Was more focused on the new grandchild, understandably. 

 

Let’s see what next week brings. 

 

Sorry i can’t offer any more details guys. I know this is nerve wracking.

Happy New Year Stray!

 

Any word on the dyno results from Jeff? Even though the other new header has caught most of the buzz, I am still very interested in the dyno results of the Lextek header. If the Lextek header can post results at least as good as the stock non-cat 5th gen header I think it is still a good option for those that don't want to pay the premium price for the other 'small batch' header. It would be nice to have info on both options and I don't think the work you and Jeff have put in is in vain.

I am with adkfinn - Stray, the perseverance you’ve demonstrated deserves to bear fruit. I was literally this close (thumb and index finger 1/4” apart) to purchasing a Lextek when the other project swung into action. I still may get a Lextek for a second 5th gen.

Hello All, 

 

Spoke to Jeff yesterday and he apologised for the delay. 

 

Unfortunately the grandson situation has got quite setious for Keith who has gone to ground since the lad was born. Very ominous. 

 

Jeff’s VFR is in Keith’s workshop with the Lextek fitted. They got as far as running it (not under load) and Jeff says it sounded awesome! No more progress since then. 

 

Dyno testing will have to wait until the grandson situation resolves. 

 

Sorry to be a wet blanket folks. I’m afraid there’s no working around this one. 

 

There will be a dyno pull but I can’t say when. Sorry again for the delay! 

 

Stray
