  1. Version 7


    This is a 6 speed map. This map has been evolving over the last few weeks. Speed Calibration was done via GPS and gear speeds were set @ 5k rpm. Temps range from 50* to 70* but mostly in the mid 60's. Evevation was from Sea level to 4000 feet. Average around 1500 ft. The trims are now at a max +/-1~3. In mixed riding the MPG are @ 41. Tearing it up in the hill will get as bad as 36 mpg. Straight freeway speeds can get 43 mpg. Most of the map is running 13.2 afr, But at 0~20% throttle in the 4250~6250 RPM range in 5&6 gears the AFR is 13.7.(I tried leaner, but the bike got back the mid range buzz, so 13.7 it is). Y2K with gutted airbox, PiperCross filter, Staintune and no o2/Pair. Enjoy.

    Hi all, here's a map for the PC5 on a 5th gen VFR. As you can see from the pic, the air box has been hacked up pretty good. Using a PiperCross filter, Staintune hi mount, Pair's disabled and o2 sensors disabled. Runs like a batt out of Hell. Enjoy.
  3. Let's not let this thread die! I just changed the oil to RedLine Motorcycle 10/40. First thing I noticed was the oil pressure light now shuts off just before the bike starts. With the old oil(mobil1 4t with 3700.miles)the light would flicker a couple of times than go out, but after the engine started( did the same thing with Rotella Syn). 2nd thing I've noticed, is the bike shifts like a hot knife thru butter. Shifting is better than with mobil1 and as good as Rotella(but the Rotella went to crap in less than 2000 miles). Will see how long the RedLine last. Update! Just got home from a 100 mile ride. I've noticed a couple of more things! the bike is now running 200 rpm higher at idle. I'll need to adjust down to 1300 in the morning. Also, the bikes temp is running at 172~173f*(lower than I've ever seen at crusing speed. Before the RedLine it was running around 177~180f* I'd say that So far this RedLine oil is worth the money(if it holds up for 10k).

    I see you've got your priorities in order!
  5. You two married? if so, would you like to trade for a hot latino wife that does not care for motorcycles?
  6. All is good, but the accelerator cables get tight at full right turn. The difference from stock to these is only a little over 1 inch at the riser. THE advantage is in the angle, as the stock has a down angle and the vf1000 is at 90*. So at the ends, where talking over a two inch. And there's no interferance issues, as these bars are further back, they don't contact the fairing. and there higher on the ends and don't hit the tank.
  7. Last week I rode a 99 vfr with Helibars, I was not blown away by the big buzz about them! they were a little better than stock, but did not take it far enough(IMO). Also last week I found a member selling a set of bars for a VF1000f. I looked hard at them and thought, those look like they may work on my vfr. So I bought them and the difference over stock is fantastic! The bike is now so comfy. I did need to drill holes for the control stops. And the bars are hollow, so vibs are felt more. But this is what Honda should have offered in a touring version of the VFR.:blink:
  8. Same glare, just yellow! 4300K is best. It looks very close to a hot halogen. As far as glare go's, All HID systems glare! We are looking at an arc lamp. Take a look at the oem systems from high end cars, you'll see glare. Well setup HID on a clear lens reflector(vfr) is no worse than bikers running high beams. If you adjust the cut off, you wont bug anyone. Most bikes I've seen with HID, have them all screwed up with a bad install/adjustment.
  9. HyperPro fork springs and a Penske shock will run you about $1100. This will transform your bike to a very good handling machine.
