What did you do to your VFR Today?

Recommended Posts

I tinkered and ran through the “drill” checking out a possible R/R issue. Otherwise that was it...... No time to ride today.

You can get a lid in the side case.

Is this screen the same shape as the stock screen?

Same as the original, just dark. I considered the double bubble but as I don't care for it's appearance and don't mind the airflow, stuck with the same shape. Bought it from PowerBronze thru eBay. Saw it, liked it so I watched it. A day later got a eBay offer from PowerBronze for $50 and free shipping. Done!

Yeah, I don't hop up from the garage floor too quick any more either! After removing the bottom fairing fasteners one time I thought oh hell no...and broke out the credit card.

It Mounts to the swingarm pivots and has a strap on the rear axle bolt to hold it level. It will also lift it in wheelie or stoppie mode. I'm highly impressed with the quality in addition to the design. It's $800 but I don't regret a penny!

Thank you Billv45. I'm reaching for my wallet as I type. This would be a perfect self-gift with my COVID money. 

 

edit: I ordered my own yesterday. I can't wait to get my butt up off the garage floor. Thank you Billv45 for the inspiration.

(technically yesterday). Picked it up from the shop. They did every bit of maintenance that a 38,000mile bike needs and it rides like a new machine.

Got rid of loud delkevic and installed stock muffler.   Mebbe I'll find something else I like better,  but I like what's left of my hearing more...

Which Delk did you remove?  I just bought a 2015 that the PO had cut the stock can in half and I'm considering a change.  Also just up the road in Arvada.  I was considering the 14" DL10.

I love my 14" Delkevic - makes the V4 sound glorious! Not too loud, especially when compared to the Arrow slip-ons installed on my Ducati S4R. I would not go shorter than the 14" version15cea9b87e53469a732f57c11c5accd4.jpg

It was the shorty chromed one. 

Sold it to a guy on the CO Vfr FB messenger group chat...

THat's almost as far as the lid will close with my Shoei RF1200 in it.  What make and model helmet are you showing in this photo?

Are there any CO-specific VFR groups around and/or groups that get together to ride?

 Well last days we had on the menu 😅

-new oil and filter and K&N air filter maintenance

-removed CBS

-assembled new Hel braided brake lines as well as stock VFR brake calipers drilled so to have all three pistons working at the same time

 

and now I will deliver her Monday at the mechanic, so to have the used CBR 600 f4 front M/C I have bought rebuilt, as well as brake lines bleed, as I don't mess with that 😅

I can't seem to bolt back the screw highlighted in green, it's like if the screw thread which I believed existed inside the swing arm has vanished... or how does the screw holds to the swing arm so to keep the chain guard in place... many thanks for your help

I think there is a short metal backing piece under the chain guard, nearly impossible to see or reach into which the screw goes. I'll have to go out and have another look but I remember having a heck of a time getting that attached in the past. I'll update later.

Mounted new tires. My PR5s that I mounted in September and rode all fall/winter/spring on were shot (6100miles). Burned out the center of course, but that's what happens when you live in a valley and have to ride straight roads to get to the fun roads.

Hi everybody, new to this forum but what I did today is get my 2000 VFR800Fi back on the road🙌
 

I purchased the bike 3years ago, always wanted to try a V4 engine but it needed some tlc so it’s done very little roadwork recently, but hopefully that’ll now change and my trusty Transalp can now have some much needed R&R for its 65000miles of diligent service.

 

since getting the VFR, it’s needed tyres, new rear shock (Hagon), front forks service and EBC front rota’s. Time to stop spending and start riding.

 

i hope to get lots of info on how to make the VFR better (read lighter!!) from this forum and will post bits and pieces I do if people are interested.

 

Pete
