  1. Danno, thanks for the info. Did not know about 775's and the false information regarding them. Cogswell's question and Grum's answer now has me thinking, should I add a fuse and possibly remove the C/B? Felt odd during install there was no fuse. Here's some more info with pictures on how I mounted the 847. I used the following stainless hardware. The narrow base weld nuts came from mcmaster, other hardware from local hardware store. M6 button head 40 mm length (2) M6 fender washer (2) M6 standard washer (2) M6 narrow-base weld nut (2) https://www.mc

  3. @sfdownhill is your contact person. From Nov 2019, page 26 of this thread: https://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/88463-new-5th6th8th-gen-performance-header-now-in-production-in-usa/page/26/&tab=comments#comment-1102353 I'm using the map but plan on having one custom made.
  4. Removed Heat Shield Thanks, compared to my old 2000.5 Aprilia Mille R, this set up does not bother me. I have some titanium wrap that Gig suggested just in case. I'm a safe lane splitter so I'm always moving and that helps. Once in a while in heavy city traffic when the engine is running at 220 I can feel some heat, though not enough to do anything about it. Loading Maps to PC3 Model 111-410 I could not get a map to load without the 9v adaptor. Like you, I was able to wake the PC3 with the bike turned on (not running), but would get an error message. I tried to with th
  5. Do you have the PC5 installed? In case your '98 does not like PC5 like my '99 did, here's how you update your PC5 firmware. https://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/91204-power-commander-v-fix-for-2000-2001-vfrs/&tab=comments#comment-1104439 Our bikes are snowflakes, they're all different. What works one one bike may not yield the same performance metrics on another. Lots of variables involved. Thought there are some PC maps on VFRD's download section that may help: https://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/files/category/1-power-commander-maps/
  6. I have a '99 with WiLD headers, Staintune, PC3 Model 111-410, Attack map and it works fine. I bought this 9V battery adapter for PC3, I used it to load the map. https://www.ebay.com/itm/253484941321
  7. Not sure which gen VFR you're interested in converting and don't have detailed instructions on conversion but here's some info that could help. Here's a nice article on the '99 RC45 Castrol version with double sided swingarms. http://www.simonevans.co.uk/v-four/rc45-99.htm And here's a video of the '98 RC45 Lucky Stripe Suzuka winner in the Honda Museum. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-F1JxSpZxuY I included a few pictures of the Lucky Stripe bike. I'm sure someone out there can make you a vinyl wrap to fit your Repsol needs. At o
  8. Nice work! Really like that blue with white wheels. Where did you get the new oil pipes??
  9. The website is not up-to-date. Contact Gerhard directly. (Thurn Motorsport <info@thurn-motorsport.de>) Last April, I reached out to him regarding parts for my 5th gen. He was quick to respond with his current delivery program.
  10. The SP is sweet, nice scoot. In 20/30 years someone will be working on their SP conversion. There's someone on Instagram (@rc30replica) making slow progress on his RC36-2 to RC30 conversion. He claims to have a source for reproduced RC30 tanks and fairings in Spain. How's your Spanish? Maybe this contact in Spain will lead to a tank and fairing that will work with your RC24. In my limited RC24 knowledge I've not come across a RC24 to RC30 conversion. It would be fun to see one completed. Best of luck if you move forward. With a RC24 perhaps a Flyin Fred Mer

  12. Another vote for RC: https://www.rcfuelinjection.com/Store/c/fuel-injector-cleaning They return your injectors with a before and after flow rate report. I've attached a copy of my Feb '21 report for my Super Tenere. They were "Dripping" at 257 and 369 cc per minute. After cleaning, flow rate improved to "Excellent" at 419 and 420 cc per minute. In the past 5 years, I've shipped sets for my VFR, Tenere and Volvo turbo wagon, they've always come back with a balanced flow rate. You can ship your 4 injectors using USPS Priority Mail Small Flat Rat
