  1. Hi to everyone I always wanted to own a vfr800 6gen i leave in Cyprus and there are only few left on the island and is difficult to choose and buy.Any way 6 months ago i buy my honda vfr 800 that was a UK import.The rust on metal frame and and the bad cleaning of UK salt was enough to start crying for what i was looking especially when was without fairing. So after a lot of work by me i finally make it like new with a replica desing of MotoGP repsol winter test. For all of you that you want to comment good or bad your are welcome to do.Any suggestions are welcome too.

  2. Watching the temp rise from a 'normal' of 77-78C to 95+ sitting in traffic in summer is a bit of a anxiety builder, but never has seemed to cause any issues.

  5. I remember in the day when the 5th gen came out, Honda had commentary about how great relocating the rads to the sides was - allowed to shorten up the wheelbase, improve handling and centralized weight distribution - blah, blah, blah. Then on the 8th gen the commentary switched to how great it was to relocate the rads to the front (didn't think we were watching, did 'ya, Honda??) Anyway - it seems that the side rad set up has caused a lot of owner anxiety about temps - but in my time here I can recall just one post where the owner actually had the temp hit the number (250F?) where the ECU

  9. Interesting read. Some points worth to mention, higher running temperature for combustion engine the better from efficiency point of view. Overheating problem or rather current temperature limits are due to material limitation. Similarly from heat transfer point of view, higher delta T, temperature difference b/w ambient and op temperature more heat transfer. Turbulent flow is better for heat transfer than laminate flow. Pumps dead head occur with blocked discharge, there is no such situation in small loop with thermostat closed. Without small loop will be very difficult for engine to re
