  1. Twice the price, half the rides. The rich continue as usual, only growing fatter faster these days..
  2. Wires from/to pulse coils, come thru cover gasket surface in a sorta grommet type rubber “plug”, not unheard of for oil to escape there. Sealer around the cut-out in cover can help...
  3. Picture of an ngk cr9eh-9 will clarify any possible confusion here..the heads are missing quite a few threads from factory for some reason
  4. There’s a sensor for ign that takes its pulses from the start clutch, if it fails pretty likely to be only when hot. PIA to track/“diagnose”. Guess the cam sensor might do the same but have only seen the lower one quit intermittently so far. However, my failure was a much older bike’(86). Miserable experience!
  5. Any ideas on how much clearance remained? Most of the spec or hardly any...
  6. Only thing I do to stop the wiggle is touch the grips lightly, hoping Honda is right as I’m too lazy for the brg change, works fine & not dangerous...
  7. Wearing a set on my ‘96, no cupping yet but can’t stop an irritating deceleration shake. Doesn’t hurt anything, just driving me to distraction. Tried everything short of changing to a different tire, nothing I’ve done even affects it!
  8. Use a preservative, full tank, mine lasts for months easily, occasionally years, even the low octane type that “may contain” up to 10% ethanol. However, all my bikes are carb’d, fuel injected types could be a different story. Theoretically should be OK tho, as there’s less chance of fuel evaporating into varnish/gum the way it can in carb passages...
  9. How much “smaller”? I doubt the magnets in the rotor will work very well if they’re not close enough to the stator coils/windings. Better do more research, some of the earlier gen 6 reportedly had different sized stators which required a rotor change ...
  10. If you don’t have one attach/mount a digital volt meter, monitor actual readings @ battery while running or even shut off. Running shouldn’t exceed 14.5-14.9, also some less $”aftermarket” bulbs don’t last worth a damn. Honda parts are way more durable, even though they’re shockingly costly...
  11. Hi airwalk, Thank you for your donation of 25.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  12. “Roadster”, may save those stators if series type is chosen instead of shunt style. If it works it’ll be worthwhile...
  13. I had similar symptoms (with starter clutch) on a couple of my vfr years ago. Checked for worn/cracked components, etc. Even replaced parts(plunger springs, rollers) to no avail. Turned out the synthetic oil in them was apparently too “slippery”, changed to Dino diesel(Rotella 15-40) & problem vanished instantly. Could be a straw worth grasping if all else fails...
  14. ‘08 V-tec, if my research is correct( he specifies A-6 model/ version)
  15. Late response but maybe pertinent. Have looked pretty far&wide(e-bay, etc.), these are becoming scarce, as in NLA new. Just struggled thru a testing, grasping straws session with one of mine, turned out that sensor works but screws on back of speedo weren’t making good enough elec. contact with printed circuit. What a PIA, getting to back of instruments is beyond tedious!
