  6. Hi everyone, 2007 RWB VFR800, 33,000 miles, completely stock, no modifications I will add my experience to this thread. I just tuned the starter jets on the four throttle bodies this past weekend. The bike was surging terribly, idle went from @ 1,500 - 1,000.. I bought the Carbtune equipment, printed the manual and dug into this problem. After preparing everything and finally getting the Carbtune PRO tool hooked up, I started the bike. Well, looking at the Carbtune PRO tool, it was an OMG moment. No wonder this bike doesn't run right. Let's just say they were not in alignment. After about 30 or so minutes, finally got all throttle bodies to within .5 cmHG of each other. (Had fan blowing on engine ) The bike idles smoothly and twisting the throttle is very responsive. I am thrilled.. 🙂 I also noticed that my bike had two short stacks up front and two long stacks in the rear. (Bought new, this is how it came from factory). Others had commented that this was not correct and indeed the manual shows a short, long up front and a long, short in rear. I changed them accordingly. I am thinking the worker doing the assembly just put short in front and long in rear. Thanks for all previous comments and help, Bill Mersch aka MisterBill 20200824_192318[1].mp4

  8. Hi everyone, Just wanted to say that my son and I bled all the brake lines and clutch line this past weekend on my 2007 VFR 800 RWB. We used this EXCELLENT guide from jay-d with no issues at all. All the lines were bled in proper sequence and everything worked as stated. We did it the old school way (no speed bleeders). Be patient, don't skip any bleeder screws as this will only keep old fluid in that section. It does take several hours to do this with two people. The one bolt that took the longest to remove was the forward bolt on the rear brake caliper backing plate. A straight wrench worked okay, just took several minutes to finally get it out. A short socket could not fit and a deep well socket was too long. I saw in the thread that someone bought a socket with a length in between the short and deep well. Good idea. Alternatively, we considered removing the rear sprocket. This looked like it would give a straight shot to the rear bolt with an extension and socket. Once again, thanks to jay-d for this excellent procedure and instructions. Bill Mersch aka MisterBill

  10. I was so inspired after TexasMac, I came home and performed the following modification. Added a windscreen from Twisted Throttle, applied my personal touch. I also took inspiration from my favorite T-shirt, note the autograph. Enjoy.

    Hey, I thought I was looking at my bike for a second. Same setup. Beautiful bike.
  14. I went from 43T to 45T on rear and did not have to add any chain links. '07 VFR. Made the bike more rideable for me. Before the switch, I was stalling or slow to take off from start. I felt the stock gearing was too tall. You will never know unless you change it.
