    I am thinking about pulling a trailer...

    Apparently there are hitches designed for the VFR (https://www.classicind.com.au/Shop/). They appear to attach to the sub frame and have "descending" arms/rods on which the hitch is mounted. I think the primary issue with lane splitting would be auto drivers not seeing the low trailer, changing lanes and colliding with it. Some combination of antenna/flag array could make it more conspicuous. But it does seem dicey. The one wheel trailer would be the way to go.

    I am thinking about pulling a trailer...

    Africord, Super helpful, Thank!
  3. Hello All, I am curious about something that I don't ever remember being addressed on here. A pull behind trailer for the 6th Gen. I know it may seem absurd, but, I have started doing a new line of work,. I have a Kit / Package of gear that I need to transport to my jobs. I have used the VFR as my commutation / predicability machine here in Greater Los Angeles for the last 10 years or so and am really missing the time saving / lane splitting ability while using my SUV. I don't need much payload but more than I can rack and luggage. I have a large-ish Pelican case and some Misc. light but too big for onboard items. It totals Maybe 100 pounds, Max. I am looking for Advice, Ideas, Experiences related to a pull behind the bike trailer. How to hitch, etc... Thanks in advance everyone. PACIFICMAN

    A nice pic I saw of the 07 RWB on the track

    I must say that while I do have a 25th Anv. version. I probably would not have ordered this paint scheme, having said that, it has grown on me. And the track pictures do look marvelous...
  5. Hello All, I wanted to say Thank You to Jay-D! I used this guide and was able to Easily flush and bleed the entire braking system on my '07 ABS. I printed this article and used it as my guide in conjunction with the Honda Manual. My 14 year old Daughter was my helper, working carefully we did the job in roughly an hour. I DID change all the valves to Speed Bleeders(from Wire My Bike) before hand. Super clean and simple in both phases.

    What Spark Plug TYPE you are running on ?

    I just purchased 4 NGK IMR9B-9H's for $50 shipped on Amazon, if anyone is looking. This seemed like a Very good price.

    Oil change 6th gen

    I have come round on the plastic clips. When you know how to release them they do the job beautifully. I did not know how to release them at first and broke a couple learning. Now, all good. My bitch about them is the price. I found some at NAPA that fit the holes but use a phillips head style core to open and close, but, they are drag to get out. How do Zip ties work as substitutes?

    5th GEN Tach face(white) for 6th GEN, will it fit?

    Kaldek, I did not know that.... I am reaching out to Throttlepimp after talking to Ryan. I like the way his looks.
  10. I would love to have a white Tach face on my 6th GEN. Does anyone if it would be a straight swap or major deal to change? They appear to be similar.

    Replacement for the Honda plastic clippy things

    I don't recall seeing the NAPA #665-2111 "push type rivets" listed here. I got some today, they work Great. The outer flange is a little larger but other than that.... They came in a bag of 5 around a buck each. Made by Balkamp.

    Oil Fiter Options For The Honda.

    Reboot on this thread. I have been using a Hi-Flo filter on my 2002. It seems to be doing a fine job, any thoughts?
