NO FRICKIN' WAY! When a project hits a couple of the 'just one more week' cycles, it raises one's eyebrow a bit. But here is physical molecular evidence of the cause of giant ____-eating grins on the

A pre-production prototype header assembly with specifications nearly identical to the Two Brothers Racing [TBR] 5th gen VFR 800 header is now being constructed in southern California.   Th

Took my first 100 mile ride today on the Honda 8thGen Interceptor after the VFRD performance upgrades. Flawless. Zero issues. Magnificent. I'm just blown away about how much better this bike is now. I

Does anyone have a Power Commander map appropriate for these headers? 

 

PC3 - header, micron exhaust, k&n filter

So what’s the official name of this exhaust system being built ?

I’m partial to W.i.L.D. Headers

Well they should copyright it and call it that if that’s gonna be the official brand name 

that way when someone asks me what brand is that sick ass exhaust I’ve got a name to throw at them .

so I’ve been talking to lance and Darly I just don’t want just the header system , I also want the link pipe to be a direct fit to the header and possibly fitted to a pair of Graves exhaust for an R1 . 
should look and sound sick on the gen 6

Can anyone point me to the right page where the Dyno graphs were done after the installation of the headers on the 5th gen?

It would be really cool if we can get WiLD or VFRD stamped into the headers from you guys.
Gotta represent the forum squad that made this all possible!
(yes I'd pay a few bucks to make it happen)

Any thoughts? Is it feasible?

So help me understand, it sounds like you asking someone else to scroll back and find the page with the information your looking for then send you the thread page number?

No, actually I have the skill level to do that. I thought perhaps someone might remember where in this voluminous thread it was located or had that page bookmarked.

They're on page 26, along with the info on how to purchase the files, which is why I wanted to locate the post... and it only took me 90 minutes.

got nothin' better to do... and it was interesting reading the evolution of the header build.  Btw I wasn't the 1st member to ask that question and he didn't get as much flack as I did so I think it only fair for those who commented to my post go back through the thousand pages of posts to find the 1st post and retroactively give him some of what I got.

No flack mate.

 

Now going back thru the thread for yourself you found 'this' story and its history and feel good about yourself for doing so, yes?

And I commend you for doing so

Didn't find the story-I was reading it as it evolved and bought a set.  Feel good about myself?  I guess but that was 90 min of my life I'll never get back>

Finally got the VFRD Header installed. Just finished full pair valve removal with plates, evap canister removal, DNA High Flow Air filter, Hel Performance SS brake lines with carbon fiber finish, VFRDiscussion Custom Header-ceramic coated, Dynojet with Autotuner and Attack Performance mapping, and center stand eliminator. 😉

That is one good- looking, clean and sexy VFR. Good work. Love those coated headers too.

I had never read this end-to-end but you inspired me, 3 or 4 hours later...was time well spent.

 

SF and Duc, I don't think I realized the effort and time you had put in to this, thank you. I can't imagine how many hours you and all the other bike donors and contributors have put in the last couple of years.

 

It's probably going to cost me more now that I'm considering a RB or PC with autotune, I currently have an older PC2.

 

I don't have much to add that hasn't been covered already. There was a note from SF about centerstand bolts mounting from the center of the bike out on the RH side. I had done just that, to remove the c-stand if needed without dropping the header.

 

I had a question on PC5 and the 5G patch but I see you've already got a whole thread addressing just that. 

 

Thanks again guys! :fing02:

Worth checking into!

There will be NO critique coming from me about struggling to find info on this thread - I’ve been trying for the past two weeks to find the prices Wade quoted for 5 gen midpipe mufflers - they’re here somewhere...I KNOW they are, because I flippin’ posted ‘em!

NICE Flya! Worth the wait. It really shows how careful and thorough you’ve been. Let us know how the ride is!

You da man, capn! I’ll ping you to learn more about center stand bolting from the middle outward. I’m sitting here right now with a set of headers to go onto my 5 gen and the angst is palpable whether to install center stand or opt out. I look forward to learning how to make it an option instead of a major commitment.

 

capn, check in w Duc2V4 on RB w autotune - he’s loving it on both his 5 gen (w WiLD headers) and his 6 gen (w WiLD headers standing by, about to be installed)

I thought mid pipes came with the aftermarket muffler(s) 5g or 6g and then it came down to what the diameter of said m.p. is.

 

50mm o.d. needs expanding (good luck with that, high risk of splitting) or a 50•x i.d. sleeve welded over the top of m.p.
