  1. I've used bike-parts-honda.com before. Good guys to deal with. They found me a NOS front fender for my CBR900RR when even CSMNL.com didnt have one. Fast shipping to and responds quickly to emails. Can't go wrong with them...

    No one has ever installed 5000K bulbs in the high beams before??

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    RVFR... I'm def interested in a set for my 6th gen. A few things I would need to know before committing. Would there be bungs for the )2 sensors (I'm running a Rapidbike module and want to keep the auto tune), How much of an issue would it be to adapt the outlet to the 06 Staintune pipe setup? and would it have the brkt for bumper placement for the center stand. Thanks, Nick

    H7 5000K 55w High Beams for 6th gen

    Dash, I double checked the parts fiche and the 6th gen VFR uses a socket adatper on 33130-MAT-611 on the hi beams to adapt the bulb to the harness. My RC51 has the same part and I know H7 builds installed without any problems. I put a set of 4000K bulbs in it and they installed easy peasy. If you bike doesn't have those then someone may have been playing around with it previously?
  5. My 07 RWB has one of Tightwad's HID kits installed on it from the original owner. Love the kit. Question I have is since the hi beams are the original H7 bulbs they almost show up "amber" in relation to the bright white of the HID's. Has anyone installed 5000K 55w H7 bulbs in the high beam without any issues. I as not sure about additional heat since to produce the brighter bulbs the lamps burn hotter. I want to get the high beam color to match the HID's. Thanks, Nick

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    When I installed my Staintune system (purchased used) I removed the stock gasket since it wouldn't allow the Staintune pipe to slip over it.. Just slipped the Staintune mid over the Honda outlet and clamped it down. No issues and no leaks.

    RVFR - I'll try to get you a shot in the next day or so. My exhaust collector that the pipe connects to is under the bike so I'm not sure what mid pipe you're talking about. The Staintune has a mid pipe that goes up to the underseat mufflers. I'll get you shot of the connection of that pipe to the factory exhaust.

    Def. interested but would need to have final info on the 02 bungs and outlet pipe dia for a workaround for the 6th gen. I too have Staintunes and I'm not getting rid of them on my 07 RWB.
  10. Glad you bough a 51 Dutchy... You won't reget it. I got 2 along with 2 VFR's. Love them all...

    Multiple Bike Disorder (MBD)

    My wife says I'm done. If Honda comes out with the V4 Homologation bike I may have to thin the herd a little bit.

    Rapidbike Evo And Racing Related Questions !

    I looked at the honda catalog and it looks like the only difference I can find on the rearsets (quickshifter vs non quickshifter) is nothing. The shifter is optional but the kit for that only includes the lever/quickshifter module assy. I was hoping someone has used a 900RR or something set of rearsets to make it work. I do have an older set laying around and if I could make that work I'd be happy. Sato's are nice and expensive but I don't like having to go to a pressure switch for the rear brakes. A little leery about cracking open my linked brake system for bleeding but that's just me. Thanks for the info Rush... 8th gen rearsets for the optional quickshifter should work for Honda stuff... Sato rearsets for aftermarket.
