    Throttle lock?

    Another vote for the Crampbuster. I have had Throttlemeisters on a couple bikes, and removed 'em since I rarely used 'em. I have a lever type lock on one of my bikes that was installed by the PO, and I've only used it a handful of times. That's gonna come off eventually too though I'll need to replace the grip/throttle tube since it was shortened for the install. Crampbuster is easy on/off no mods required.
  2. Thanks for the update. Appreciate the attention to detail you guys are performing. I'm not in a big hurry, and really need center stand compatibility for my '99 commuter/touring bike. Great job so far!
  3. Yeah that was an interesting read especially given the fact that we recently broke an apex seal on our rotary race car due to failure of a nearly 30 year old injector that was serviced, and given a clean bill of health. Not going there again. Fresh injectors with every build now. Of course piston engines like the VFR are more tolerant of lean detonation, but it still gives one pause.

    I am still in for two systems provided they perform as well as or better than the TBR, and come in around the $1K mark. I would gladly provide a test bike, but as I am in SoCal shipping is likely a deal breaker on that given recent developments. Hoping this finally comes to fruition.

    Mystery fork caps

    My 94 had those same risers on it when I bought it. Those caps are strictly cosmetic. The original fork caps are underneath. Simply remove the black caps, and you will see.

    RC51 forks on a 5G questions

    Dude I literally LOL'd that's so true! Been watching this one as I'm thinking of doing a fork swap/CBS delete on my second 5th gen. Carry on....

    Shorter than OEM windshield

    I have a cut down ZG double bubble on one of my bikes. It works well for me (6’). I have a ZG touring screen on the other. Both have less noise/buffeting than stock. The double bubble was really bad before I cut it down even with the bodywork. I’m a Shoei guy, and they like to be in clean airflow.
  10. Been running standard H4s for years with no issues. You don't trim the lower tabs just bend 'em back slightly so the base fits tight in the mount. If you want the full potential of the lights you'll need to upgrade the wiring. Eastern Beaver sells a good kit for this with options for accessory wiring.

    Help! Drive chain won't stay adjusted

    It's normal for the chain to rub the upper buffer when the bike is on the center stand. You should be able to push the lower run up, and touch it to the lower buffer. If not it's too tight, and you'll damage the countershaft bearing.

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    So only $560 in the GoFundMe. A big chunk of that is mine. Time for peeps to put their money where their mouth is. Money is not the issue for me, but I want to be sure I get the goods. Is Gabe prepared to give us a timeline for delivery once we have ten orders confirmed? Still in for two sets if we can get this figured out.

    I thought the whole sensor/outlet issue had already been settled i.e. bungs included stock outlet location.

    Sweet! Still in for 2, but could do 1 now 1 later so others don't have to wait as long. Track/play bike is waiting right now since the Ducati is hogging the lift.
