  1. I have a new in-box fork cartridge kit from Daugherty Motorsports. I bought it from the original purchaser last year who said he bought it for his '99. I never got around to installing it and now I need the cash. Includes instruction manual. Will be shipped in original box. $425 (includes shipping to US only). Item located in San Francisco Bay Area.

  3. When performing a bleed test on a first generation BMW Integral ABS system you have to keep the brake pressure within a certain range for a couple of seconds. That's 7-10 MPa for the front and 4-6MPa for the rear. With the VFR having a smaller diameter front brake MC the pressure will easily reach those figures. Hydraulic brake pressure test equipment is rated up to about 20MPa/3000 PSI

  4. Cool pipes - the curly-cues on the rear primaries are indeed interesting. I think our headers merge left-front-to-left-rear and right front-to-right-rear like the ones in the photo. It looks like the headers in the photo might be missing the last curves to get the front pipes to meet the cylinders...not sure. PM received and responded. Your question is a good one. Maybe someone who is going to have their bike dyno tuned [Tirso? Other owner of WiLD headers?] can have a baseline dyno run done with the Attack map before tuning their own custom map? That would be an effective apples-to-apples comparison.

  5. @sfdownhill is your contact person. From Nov 2019, page 26 of this thread: https://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/88463-new-5th6th8th-gen-performance-header-now-in-production-in-usa/page/26/&tab=comments#comment-1102353 I'm using the map but plan on having one custom made.

  6. Check your subharness connection that goes from the main harness to the throttle body harness. I had severe corrosion in my connector that led to somewhat similar symptoms. Cleaned the throttle body sub harness connector out with a bunch of contact cleaner and it immediately fixed my problems. Easy to check!

  8. Slightly off topic, but I saw this interesting VFR750 header on eBay and thought I’d share: Note how it merges front and rear whilst giving the rear pipes a bit more length. I wonder if those loops interfere with the rider’s feet. Clever, me thinks!

  9. 1956 MGA moved in with my beloved 5th gen today. A little grumpy about it, but I think she'll get over it.

  10. hey good job troubleshooting! Seems you've narrowed it down to a few possible culprits: 1. power to injector #2. Key ON, measure voltage going to each injector. 2. trigger signal going to injector #2. Use 'noid light to verify each injector is being fired by ECU 3. ECU may be suspect if it's not firing only #2 injector. Test trigger signal at ECU itself. If present at ECU connector but not injector connextor, then wiring in between is suspect. 4. I still suspect spark issue. Test with actual plugs. Insert plug into wire and ground case to engine and crank. What colour is spark? Do test for ALL cylinders 5. do compression-test with warmed up engine.

  11. I would also replace the small copper washers that seal the damper bolt under the forklegs.
