  1. I'm looking to grab a "spare" rear caliper, to strip/rebuild and paint while off the bike (leaving the existing one there). Can't seem to find many reasonably priced 5th gen ones local to me, but can find some 6th gen ones. I'm assuming the 6th gen rear caliper would be a direct bolt on to the 5th gen? (Brakes are de-linked, so that side of it is not an issue).
  2. Decals "can" be custom made (as a last resort).
  3. Just wanted to touch on one comment you made above: What I am keen to try is the LCD "reversal" mod. Is there a howto around for that?
  4. Damn straight...I'd have been tempted, despite prohibitive all-up costs.
  5. Mine is at ~136,000kms or so. so around 85,000 miles...
  6. That's one hell of a comprehensive reply. Thanks! I really appreciate the throttle body comments and pics. I've been thinking about COPS (despite the fact that I have two full sets of spare OEM coils). Pair valve block off was done long before I bought the bike. I will have to have another look at the T/Stat, as I assumed (perhaps wrongly) that they would include the replacement O-ring in the pack. Your post is a great example of why I (much) prefer forums like this to Facebook...The information is easily accessible (for me and others following), and won't "disappear in
  7. Soon, I'll be moving my 5th Gen from the garage to the shed, and after that will begin the "20-year" refurb work, as done by a few others on here in recent times. For the train spotters, yes, it is technically a year late, but still. I'd have started the work last year, but we moved into our (new to us) house in August, and I've since been doing - or having done - various things around the place to get it to a standard we're happy with. Not there yet, but have plenty of time, or so it would seem. One of the things I was doing was attempting to insulate and line the shed
  8. Geez...look at you go. I received mine last September, and still haven't even opened the box! To be fair, though, we'd just moved into our new home, and aside from general unpacking, I've been making my shed "project ready", before i start working on the VFR...won't be long now!
  9. No worries. Just got a bit of a surprise when I received an email from MyUS about a second headers. I had something of a "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" moment when reading it... *Internal dialogue" "Hey, I might get a second set of the you beaut VFRD Headers...Excellent!" "But they actually belong to someone else, who's paid good money for them, so you need to the right thing and let them know...Bogus!" 😆 All turned out in the end, though, so all is good.
  10. If there is a member here by the name of Beau Sampson, can her please send me a PM? It seems that your headers have mistakenly sent to my MyUS account, and they are querying it (as the ultimate destination address isn't recognised). Naturally, I'm happy to receive a second set, but thought I'd "do the right thing" by letting you know where they are. Let me know if you no longer require them... 😉
  11. You do have to wonder why they say this ("planned obsolescence, perhaps?) I have a PC2 on my bike, and will be installing the Group buy headers later this year (along with the "20 year refurb" stuff - thermostat, hoses etc.) I've already spoken to a local dealer here about having the PC2 tuned. He's at least willing to give it a try. I know for a fact that I can run up the old PC software on a Win10 tablet, and connect to the PC2 via USB-serial cable. It will monitor the PC2, displaying revs etc. in real time and so on. And all the other crap is accessible from the inte
  12. Lance, given the deadline for deposits on the first run is the 18th, can you please keep an eye out for the cheque I sent you. I also sent through tracking details via PM. Once the cheque is received, we'll need to discuss shipment options, as we are moving out of our place at the end of March, so if shipping is a 6-week proposition, I may have to provide an alternate address for shipment. On the passivation side of things, I might have to wear the PayPal ripoff (on exchange rate) to have that done.
  13. What's the go with retaining the VTEC solenoid? To "fool" the existing ECU into believing it's still "driving" a 6th-Gen engine?

    VFRC-750 SP-1

    I'm liking that! Is that an SP1 Duck tail on it? Is there a write-up on what's been modified on the bike? (Presumably lots).
