  1. I've owned three different 5th gens, one 4th gen, and countless other bikes over the years. As far as "regular" maintenance goes, it's no more complex than anything else. Some things are easier, some aren't. Just the way it goes. Like those push pins. PITA at first, but do yourself a favor and have a bunch on hand. New ones work much easier. Also, those well nuts.. just replace them. Hell, my local hardware store carries em. After time, they get all mushroomed from overtightening and the threads get all cockeyed. Now you're digging around with the screw trying to get it started. Change out th
  2. These were taken off my 2000 with 2800 miles on the odometer. The seat is flawless. $150 plus shipping Edit: I also have the stock exhaust that's mint as well if anyone is interested.
  3. The front is bolted down in the rear? Unless I missed something, it looks like the rear just has tabs that fit under the crossbar. I gotta look again
  4. This is my 4th VFR, but my first Sargent for one. It looks great, but am I missing something? What keeps the front seat in place when not using the rear? It fits perfectly, but seems it can slide back fairly easily. I never installed the cowl. Does that hold it somehow? Thanks..
  5. Yes, the clamp is not part of the canister, and gives you some wiggle room. Fitting that IXIL might be dicey, but who knows.
  6. So yeah, I finally got around to test fitting the Two Bros exhaust on my bike. Just to recap..I purchased a Two Bros high mount exhaust for a 8th gen VFR. I wanted to see if it would fit my 5th gen. Opinions were all over the place. Some say it would work, some say it wouldn't. Well guess what.. Fits perfectly! No modifications at all. The only thing I can see is the center stand rubber stop is slightly off. But it's totally fine. It still sits almost level. I have to say that I like the old version a little better. The one where the mid pipe bolts to the canister. This one has spr
  7. You are right. It is AUD. (I confirmed with the sales guy). So just under $700 at the current exchange rate. That's not bad, but here's the story.. So i was gonna wait till later, but I'll give a quick update. I had a Two Bros carbon fiber can on my 2001. Loved the way it sounded, and looked, I opened it up after 10 years to repack it, and it still looked new. Quality stuff. So i decided the other day to be the guinea pig. I ordered one for a 8th gen to see if it would work. Like most, i can't get a definitive answer on whether it will fit or not. So, F it. It came in last night, so I'll
  8. Not a chance of being over 60 ft\lbs. I'll go with. 98hp, 54ft\lbs. Every dyno is different. So +\- a few
  9. Just got a reply from Staintune. They still make high and low mount exhausts "to order". They want $800 plus $150 shipping from AU. Definitely a lot of steam for it, but they are 100% available.
  10. I've heard all the rumors about that. Read multiple posts as well. Doesn't seem like there is a clear answer as to whether it fits or not. Sucks man. Never thought it would be this difficult to pick out an exhaust.
  11. Some of you may have read how I finally found an almost showroom 2000, with no miles on it. My intention was to leave it all stock... The way Honda intended it. After having run it a few times now, I've realized that I just can't have that stock exhaust on there. I don't care about the weight or size, but I just have to let this thing sing. It's one of the very few bikes that sounds really good with an aftermarket can. I've always had quality exhausts on all my bikes. Two Bros, Akrapovic, Yoshimura and the like. Unfortunately, finding any of these for a 5th gen is impossible. The only ones tha
  12. Ha. I think that's the reflection of my hi-viz yellow shirt. Usally wrench on it a few hours every day after work.
  13. Haven't been around in a while. Sold my mint 2001 years ago and bought a Diavel. Lately, I've been searching for a perfect 2000. Something to could just cruise on. The Ducati is awesome, but sometimes I just want to take it easy. Getting older I guess. Ive passed on multiple "clean" ones. It's amazing what people think "mint" is. After a year or so of searching, I finally found one. No shit, 2800 original miles. Everything, and I mean everything is there. The only thing that I could find missing was the rubber frame plug for the idle adjustment. Tires, brakes, oil, coolant, brake fluid, all o
