    6th Gen Refresh

    Just finished reading this thread from beginning to end. Great job and thanks for sharing your saga with the rest of us. Enjoy your (pretty much brand new, now) ride!

    Should I have buyers remorse?

    You've got a sharp, clean looking example there. You made a great choice. I actually prefer the manual fast idle because I can warm up the bike gently on cold days without having the automatic fast idle zoom the rpm up to 2k on a cold engine. Enjoy your new purchase!
  3. So the "break" lock "broke" ?
  4. What a fantastic looking bike. Thanks for showing it to us.

    Rearsets for 5th gen.?

    Sounds very reasonable. Count me in.

    Rearsets for 5th gen.?

    Thanks for the info. Of course the big question is price. Do you have a ballpark estimate for a pair of "raw" (no anodize, just bare metal) brackets?

    Rearsets for 5th gen.?

    Also interested but a bit bedazzled by all the bling in your earlier picture :) Could you clarify: am I correct that what you're talking about is a bolt on replacement for items 4/14 in the attached picture? Ie. a straight swap using existing cushion, bolts, etc.

    Lost the Love

    Funny you should mention the Miata. My wife has one and we sometimes pick a scenic destination and "meet for lunch". I take the viffer and she takes the Miata. But like you said, it's really more enjoyable when we both take the car together.

    "Drop" testing will definitely cause a battery failure.

    Left-hand turns are more difficult

    I have the reverse problem. Riding here in the mountains means entering right handers blind but left handers you can look across the lanes to get a bit more visibility. Ergo I'm better at lefties than righties. And have the tires to prove it :) To put it another way, I'd rather blow a left hander and be off in the ditch than blow a right hander and become a hood ornament.

    12Oclocklabs Speedodrd

    They may be counting the same revolutions, but the output is different due to the software involved. Ok, I get it now. The factory electronics take a single signal from the sprocket and calculate two different quantities: speed and mileage. The mileage is exact but the displayed speed is (say) 5% too high, presumably as a favor to the consumer to reduce speeding tickets (or whatever). So without modifying the electronics you can only correct one or the other, not both.

    12Oclocklabs Speedodrd

    I don't understand. How can the speedo accuracy change but not the odometer? They're both driven by counting revolutions of the output sprocket.

    1986 Vfr 750R Rebuild

    This was a great thread to read. Thanks for sharing a piece of history with us. Good review here: http://raresportbikesforsale.com/featured-listing-1986-honda-vfr750r-rc30/

    I've got one of these on my CBR. It's tiny and sits tucked away out of sight. The programming is a bit odd (just one button and one led) but not too hard to figure out. Set it once and forget about it.
