  1. I have to admit that it was more of a quick look over and nothing looked obviously wrong. Sounds like I need to investigate closer!
  2. If you could find out some more at some stage, that would be appreciated, thanks!
  3. Thanks for the suggestions and advice- at least if I can't get the LCD working I know I can at least ride the thing!
  4. Hi Everyone It's been a long time since I've been on here, which unfortunately also mirrors how long it's since I've used my bike! 😞 Anyway, wheeled my bike out of the shed to take it out for a quick ride to blow the cobwebs out. It had sat for a looong time hooked up to a battery charger / tender. Started fine, run fine, warmed up, then I looked and noticed the LCD display was totally blank. Doh! I checked (and swapped out) the display fuse, which was fine. Checked there was power to the fuse - yep. Uttered some more swear words, spat my dummy and wheeled it back into the shed. That was several weeks ago. Finally got some time this weekend to investigate further. Got the fairings off, took the dash off. Unplugged it, wiggled wires, looked it over, and guess what? No difference (no surprise really!) Nothing seems obviously wrong / burnt corroded. I'm guessing others would have come across this issue or know about it. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have tried searching the forum but have not come across anything. Is it ok to still ride my bike, or is it a symptom of a greater issue? Thanks!
  5. But when I get an idea in my head I want to do something about it NOW! ... and then have the parts sit in my shed for 6-12 months until I get a chance to do anything and then another 6-12 months until I finish it! ;-)
  6. Sigh... that's one problem with living so far away from anywhere - the cheapest set I found (4 plugs + harness) was at least $100 more than that. And that is from the UK. One 'local' (other side of the country) ebay seller is asking for $220 for the same thing!
  7. Do the later 6th gen, 8th gen, or even 7th gen have COP setups that would fit the 5th gen engine?
  8. Hi shaynus, Thank you for your donation of --. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  9. Any tips how to get to the website? (I'm not on facebook) I was on it a week or two ago (was surprised someone posted in the Technical section, but about a VFR800X, so I was of no help) but now the same link comes up with a message saying the site has gone... And yes, I realise it may be poor form asking about another forum, but it i only a small 'local' one and that's why I was trying to be discreet in the downunder section (shhhhh!) ;-)
  10. Hi all. Is it just me or does it seem like the OZvfr website has finally died :-(
  11. http://www.extremecreations.com.au From your neck of the woods keef. They do a range of extensions for Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, etc, forks. I originally ordered a set to suit the '99 R1 forks I was going to use, then came across the FZ1 forks (which look nicer to my eyes, being all black). Had to get a new lower (small) extension piece made as the R1 have a different size thread in the bottom of them 10mm vs 12mm or something like that). They are only available in a black finish.
  12. While not exactly entirely R1, the front end on my 5th gen is a combination of R1 yokes, FZ1 forks / brakes /wheel and 50mm fork extensions to enable me to use VFR1200 clip ons. I'm happy with the result! :-)
  13. Ahh, just makes for a different topic to chat about instead of the weather or how bad Perth drivers are at merging! ;-)
  14. G'day Karbunkle. Are you north or south of the river?
