    My 399 lb VFR848

    Speed sensors are simple electronic clickers that send the output shaft rotation speed as pulses. This signal is used by the speedo to calculate speed. Swapping sensors won’t change the output pulses. Get a Speedo healer if you want to correct your speedo. It fits between the speed sensor and the speedo and adjusts the number of pulses to correct the speedo display.

    Thank you, Terry! That was very kind... I read your PM, I think you have me confused with GloryRacer in regards to who changed your tire at Hog Tie... Unless I was reeeeally drunk... lol

    Pro evo shift kit?

    No one is razzing you my friend... we are just trying to help. I totally get wrenching as therapy... it works for me too.

    Pro evo shift kit?

    Dude, if you have 7500 miles on the bike I doubt there is anything wrong with your clutch... leave it alone to you figure the other stuff out. Have you been trying to do wheelies? High rpm launches? Quarter mile runs?

    Pro evo shift kit?

    I can shift without a clutch on lazy Sunday rides all day no problem... my bike had false neutrals and I felt the shifts on hard acceleration could be improved and the Factiry Pro Shift Kit delivered that improvement. I’m not the original owner so I don’t know if the shifting deficiencies were inherent to the bike or developed over time. +1 on Oz’s recommendation for clutch maintenance... while you’re there, throw in a shift kit 😉 An abnormally heavy clunk entering first means you clutch is likely dragging, bleed with fresh fluid and clean; also, your plates could be glazed and sticking
  6. Dutchy, that is SWEEEEEET!!! I buddy of mine won a KTM supermoto on a magazine contest along with a year end invite to the finals in Las Vegas... but I would take a MotoGP Assen weekend over that! Good on you!!! We expect nothing less than full on umbrella girls and GP bikes pics!!! Congrats!!!

    I'm out... work and weather conspired against me. I started a new position on Monday and the VP handed me a load to handle before the weekend. Have fun and stay safe! ... and dry if possible

    Pro evo shift kit?

    I was doing other work so I don't remember how long this particular install took... I agree with others, it was definitely worth it! Not hard, just be patient and careful. I actually bought two and have the other sitting in a box on my work bench waiting to go into my project bike. Factory Pro shifter and the clutch are on opposite sides of the engine so its not like a "while you in there change the clutch" kinda job... if you find a slipper clutch for a VFR let me know

    Recommended front wheel upgrade?

    According to Keef the cast 848 is only 1.6 oz lighter than the plug and play F4i... now if you go forged your dropping 2 more pounds of unsprung rotating mass

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    +1 ... and on the 8th gen headers pictured they have the rear down pipe slip fit connections backwards; the upstream pipe should fit inside the downstream pipe for optimum exhaust flow. In addition, with this configuration you are more likely to have leaks and blow by past the slip fit connection. It looks pretty the way they have it but for exhaust gas flow performance it is backwards.
  11. I wasn’t asking about a stock VFR engine. I was asking to find out what he has found works for a bored and stroked engine... some of us are working on increased displacement 5th gen engines. ... but yes, you are correct. What works on a bored and stroked engine wouldn’t work as well on a stock engine.

    IIRC... it isn’t the stud spacing but clock orientation of the exhuast studs; the 6th gen studs are clocked different to the 5th gen, that’s why spinning flanges solves the issue.
  13. What have you found to be the “ideal” sizes for you primary and secondary exhaust piping dimensions? I know you haven’t been on the site in a few months... I hope it is because you are racing please let us know when you get a chance. Thanks!
