    Hmmm...do they know something I don't?

    Great country, great folk, great roads. What more do you want?

    The new(ish) VFR in town..

    Was that in the recent heatwave? At 30mph there's very little cooling so it sounds quite normal to me. The V4 doesn't run particularly cool. Have you tried going faster? 😆😉

    back protector

    There's loads of dealers over here that can supply D30 and other standards of armour, to fit. I'd be very surprised if there weren't a lot more over there.
  5. So do you (OP) leave the key in the ignition when you walk away from the bike?

    New (to me) 2010 1200f

    Could a European member purchase a pair of rubber thingys and post them? That would be cheaper. Either way, welcome. Glad yr enjoying the 1200, mine's a keeper.

    And the best (and fastest) colour too.
  8. Did this mod on my 08 800. Also put O2 eliminators on. Initially just blocked the PAIR but then removed the hoses etc completely and block off the PAIR valves with Mello Dudes plates and all together they smoothed out the low revs beautifully. Has anyone done the full monty mod on an 8th Gen yet? I'm still getting some low rev hesitation and wonder whether this engine respond to the mods as well as the old one did. 
  9. How did that end up in this thread??? Something weird going on here.....or too much red wine!

  11. Are you using it for Sat Nav? If so, then someone will be along soon. I don't use it for Sat Nav and if I'm away touring or even away for the day, I carry a small recharging battery which gives me at least 2 full charges before needing recharging itself.

    I fitted Thurn Motorsports crash bungs, front wheel spindle & rear hub crash protection the other week - see link in my sig. Always great quality from Thurn!

    Wiring diagram 2012 XRunner?

    Haha, maybe you are correct, but the original CrossRUNNER!!! was based around the 6th Gen VFR800 so the electrics are likely to be very similar, even identical as it had nothing new that that the 6th Gen didn't have. Anyway, email sent with the 2017 wiring diagram so hopefully someone who understands this evil electrickery magic can spot the difference.

    Wiring diagram 2012 XRunner?

    I know nothing of this electrickery you mention, but hopefully someone who does will be able to tell you if that is very similar to a 6th Gen wiring diagram or more closely fits an 8th Gen one.

    Wiring diagram 2012 XRunner?

    M8, I posted a reply on the Crossrunner forum but I think the 2012 should be the same or almost identical to the 6th Gen wiring diagram as the 2012 Crossrunner is a derivative of the 6th Gen VFR. HTH.
