  1. I think all but one asked for no pasivation, maybe 2... The passivation is more for "curing" the welds than for protecting the actual whole headers. I believe that sfdownhill had posted what the actual process entails somewhere here on this thread.
  2. Just to give an update. We currently have a new list going and are at the minimum number we need, just waiting on confirmation of the deposits. Most likely we will be there to move forward within the next week or so. If you are thinking about getting a set, now would be the time to chime in. Send me (Duc2V4) and sfdownhill a PM and we can get you sorted out. Cheers, D I thought I'd add pricing here just to make it easy. Headers: $830.00 Passivation: $90.00 Gaskets: $20.00 (set of 4) PC Map: $50.00 Shipping: TBD (Based on your location) Prices range from $50-$90 within the lower 48.
  3. Yes, we are taking orders now and have at least 3 confirmed on the list. You can add your name to it if you like. I will be sending you a PM shortly with ordering details.
  4. Thanks for the replies folks, since I already have a 2003+ stator, I went and found a 2003+flywheel on eBay and have that on it's way. Seems the easier and more practical thing to do.
  5. Ironically I have a rewound stator from my 2009 done by Custom Rewind and a new 2003+ stator but that is the dilemma these parts are a plenty, hence my question of needing the flywheel to go along with it. Otherwise, we’d have to pull his stator, get it sent in, wait for it to return and then install it. Since he’s moving from California to Colorado he doesn’t have the time to do that while he comes to California to pack up and go back to Colorado.
  6. So going to look into helping change out a stator for fellow member Duccman's 2002 VFR800. In looking at the parts fiche, it appears that the 2002 uses a different stator and flywheel than the 2003-2009 models. It appears that the 2002 parts are no longer available and when I look up the alternative part #31100-MCW-315 I cannot seem to be able to locate this one either. My recollection is that in order to use the later model stator, the flywheel would have to be updated as well. Does anyone recall if that is true or what the differences between 2002 stator #31120-MCW-D01 and the 2003+ stator #31120-MCW-D03.
  7. I love this band (Primal Scream), seen them pretty much every tour they've come to the states to tour. This live version is probably my all time favorite song by them at the moment. Musically and lyrically it just centers me...
  8. Not to flog a dead horse but I did find a picture of the aluminum one after it gave up the ghost...
  9. As mentioned, the CCS on the 5 Gen is typically located on the mid-pipe. However, if the mid-pipe does not have the stop, then the Sebspeed alternative would be desired.
  10. If it helps, put me down for one 5 Gen and one 6 Gen.
  11. My Knox Zero3 have full leather on all fingers and the touch material over the top of the tips, probably for waterproof integrity. I wish my Nexos were made the same way. I like them but can't wear them with holes in the finger tips. I'm going to attempt to repair them, we'll see how that works out. The other aspects of these gloves have proven to be great. Palm sliders, Boa lacing system, knuckle and wrist protection, all worth the price of admission. Thanks for the reply.
  12. I have these but the index finger tips wore out. Not sure if they changed the design but are yours full leather with a touch screen capable material on top or is it the thin touch screen material as the finger tip? I'm a Knox glove wearer and they have been my go to glove for some time now but my Nexos didn't hold up like my previous pair, Biomech. If I knew those would no longer be produced, I would have bought a dozen pairs! They were/are my favorite glove I've owned. I thought the Nexos would be a good replacement but alas I am a little disappointed in how they designed the index finger tip. 😞
  13. So I spoke with SF today. He said if people want in for another batch, please feel free to PM the both of us and let us know, we’ll put you on the list...
  14. Oh yeah, in regards to the K&N air filter recommendation, it was selected as the one used for the Dyno tuned bike, so we have a known working sample. No other airbox or intake mods were done on any of the bikes as far as I recall. Note however that K&N has two models of the air filter BUT both have the same part number (Go figure?!). One of them however has a much larger square inch coverage with the filter material. Not sure how to order and get the latter one other than possibly call K&N directly.
  15. All 8 Gen headers have been sold and I believe all but maybe 1 of the 5/6 Gen headers. SF has more details on the 8 Gen fitment, as he was working with the builder and had use of fellow member samuel’s bike. That being said, most of the aftermarket cans link pipe may have to be expanded to a 51mm ID , depending on what bike you have I.e. 6/8 Gen vs. 5 Gen. There’s also some brake line routing and heat shield fussing you’ll have to deal with on the 8 Gen. I thought SF posted the little caveats and idiosyncrasies of the 8 Gen setup but he’ll have to answer that. Not sure how this pandemic will affect any immediate future builds but I can say the the builder was open to a smaller number in order to start the next batch. I haven’t spoken with SF in a while in regards to even entertaining another batch but at the time we did speak, we were both open to doing it again.
  16. I found the pictures I took of my friends CCS on his 2001. He said he got this from the manufacturer of his exhaust. They supplied the mid-pipe, can and the CCS. It appears to use the CC mounting bolt, I hope these are useful...
  17. Let me reach out to my friend Robert. He as a 5 Gen and his had that left side center stand stop. I thought I had taken pictures and posted them up in a different thread. If I can find the photos I'll post them here, if not I'll see if Robert can get new photos for me.
  18. My verdict is that it didn't seem to last any longer than the plastic ones. I already replaced mine, probably should have written down the mileage but alas I don't think I did, sorry. I did think that I could use a bolt the same size as the one that holds the sprocket, to act as a mould and use some JB weld to rebuild the inner part of it but kind of gave up on that idea. I also thought of doing the same thing with the plastic ones using some plastic epoxy but again, probably more work than it's worth. TLDR: Didn't last any longer than the plastic OEM one for me.
  19. If it’ll help get these going put me on the list. I’m sure one day someone will be looking for one and viola, I may just have one I can offer up. D
  20. Are you looking to part it out or part with it whole?
  21. Did you do a rebuild kit on the SMC? When I worked on my friends bike, we did rebuild kits for all the master cylinders and all new piston seals as well. Looking at your SMC, it does appear to be in the "activated" mode, so perhaps it is stuck in that position and not allowing the fluid to return. Can you easily move the piston in and out or is it difficult? All I can tell you is that for my friends issue, it was definitely in the SMC. Hope you get it resolved.
  22. Last one. I hope these help explain the system, whether they help with the actual resolution of the issue, let me know.
