    4th gen silencer

    I got one of these gathering dust in the garage. I'm watching in case I ever put bags on my bike. Might consider shortening it a bit while you're at it. And they do make a stainless steel silencer packing material, much longer life than the glass. Tim

    Front end conversion - was yours worth it ??

    I got to sit on Mini-Carvers 5th/6th Gen at the last Summer Summit in South Dakota. (Yeah, he offered to let me ride it but he's about a foot taller and the bike is definitely set up for him). Super well thought out and executed. He showed me the cast-in boss on the Fifth Gen engine that he bolted the VTEC solenoid to-like Honda knew someone was going to do this swap. A RWB 6th Gen WITH cam gear whine AND dual Staintunes!? Outstanding. If I win the lottery... Oh, his dad rides a 6th Gen WITH a TORO Charger, yes quite the team.

    What kind of Oil/Filter do y'all use?

    Which is why I use M1 5W-30 in my 4th GEN (see above) As a side note, I've been working on cars/bikes for 55 years (my dad started me on cleaning parts when I was less than 10) and RAT540's info pretty much is in line with my limited experience. Others may vary, which is why there is more than one brand/type/'weight' of oil. Keep it clean.
  5. Yoshi, add me to the list for 1 set. Many thanks.

    Pardon The Nudity...

    I got "laid off" after 17.5 years. I was in the burst radius of a politics and money ka-boom. P.O.d for about 10 minutes and then-"What am I going to do now?" Sent out a few resumes at the beginning of the overseas contractor 'happy time'. Got one phone call-no follow up. Came home to find a FED EX envelope with a contract and a ticket to Pakistan. Got to do some cool stuff in some interesting places. One door closes-another opens. With your skills you won't have any trouble making a go of it-drive on, and best of luck-but it doesn't look like you'll need it.

    2018 VFRD SUMSUM 4

    I'm just an analog guy in a digital world, so could somebody tell me where I find the directions to do this? I'm a PC guy at work and am on the wife's MAC at home, which I'm sure is part of my issue. Thanks.

    2018 VFRD SUMSUM 4

    Rangemaster made it home Saturday to Albuquerque just before the afternoon monsoon. Did another 100 miles after COS_VFR (many thanks) and I part ways in Limon Co. Great to have a riding partner thru some of the most desolate country I've ever seen. Great time, nice to see everybody and meet some new great people. Many thanks to Tony for a fun few days.

    Leaking fuel pump

    Thanks guys. And yes it's leaking from where the two-part body comes together, under the rubber mount. I've ordered a new one, didn't feel comfortable going on a long trip taking a chance I'd be riding a potential road flare.
  13. Well, getting ready for SUMSUM 4 and had the plastics off today and found that the fuel pump is leaking from the seam were the two part body is put together. Can this be fixed or is my only option a new fuel pump?

    VFR 750 F - Radiator Upgrades (RC30\RC45 sytle)

    In Albuquerque it's routine to ride in summer temps in the high 90s to low 100s F. On my 97 the fan only comes on in stop and go traffic and once you can get moving it shuts right off and the temp comes right back down. I can't imagine you'd need anymore cooling than what the stock system can do. If anything, a oil cooler with another row or two would probably be time better spent (and easier to do).
