  1. I did it a long time ago to my old VF500 stock exhaust and it held up well. I don't see why you can't do it with a 5th gen if you prep it properly.
  2. Congratz on the bike! It looks great! How is the front tire writing painted on? About the ticking, I'm not sure what you mean. Does the ticking increase with the revs?

    VFR History

    Great read. Thanks for sharing. ....I do have a few gripes with the article though: -They lump the 3rd gen and the 4th gen into the same category. So many great things about these 2 gen VFR's that they should be separated and talked about individually. -It says the 5th gen was the gutsiest of them all with tons of torque, but the 750's had more torque. -"...the VFR also gained the RC45’s fuel injection system and a whole heap more midrange." 750's had more midrange too. -Not one RWB model pictured in the entire article -Not even one ment
  4. Was it one of the unicorn K&N filters like I've got? Also, anyone know why my Pipercross filter is different colors than all of the others I always see?
  5. Ah! I see. Thanks man 👍
  6. That DSH95 matches the red paint? Can't seem to find it online anywhere but down under 😥
  7. Here is the finished product. Seb really does quality work. 😍
  8. So I finally had a free day and got crackin on the clutch cover. Removing the
  9. ooooooh yeeeeeah! I didn't even think about that, 😲 The large O-Ring for the window is reusable?
  10. Sorry for the late reply. Been busy. Lots of great replies and helpful info. Thank you so much.😉 Good to hear that some of the clutch issues that were mentioned on here were much higher KM's than what I currently got. I'll take a gander at the plates when I'm in there and see if they look glazed 👍
  11. You're right that it's not really "in there" but I will be "there" if you know what I mean. I'll already have the clutch cover off. I'll already have the 5 bolts and clutch springs out to install the nicer looking clutch plate and bolts. Changing the clutch plates and/or springs at that point is just easier. But is it a waste of money at this point
  12. So I have been sitting on one of Sebs clear clutch covers for awhile now (not literally sitting on it of course) Now, before I install it I have been really huming and hawing over whether I should replace some, if not all, of the clutch bits while I am in there. For the record my 2000 VFR has about 66,000kms (41,000miles) on her. My ownership has been about 20k kms (13k miles) of happy life. It has had a few previous owners. I have an inkling that the bike may have been tinkered with in the past. Looks like it may have had a Power Commander on it previously. I think the o2's are
  13. Really? Interesting. I haven't heard of any horror stories related to not changing brake fluid. It is a good idea though. I agree with ya there. They are what stop us afterall
  14. Really? Oh. Hmmmm....just my opinion but I feel like 24k miles is a bit early to replace the coolant. Does the Brake fluid look dark?
  15. What exactly does the 24,000 mile service entail? I find most dealerships, both cars and bikes, like to charge for them to "inspect" things, which some techs just do a cursory glance.
