  1. Well, if you do end up heading to the Pacific, I would definitely be up to meet up and travel along. I’ll be sure to keep an eye on the post. Oh yeah, congratulations on your retirement, hope it is full of Moto adventures!
  2. Send him and CC me on a PM with your quantity along with your shipping info. We'll get you a total and get the ball rolling.
  3. I have for sale a pair of TCX X-Square WP boots. These are low cut boots that look more like a driving shoe than a typical motorcycle boot. I've had these for a while but they are still in decent shape, although the tips of the underside of the boot are showing a little wear through, they still feel solid and are pretty comfortable when walking around off bike. As for their "WP" (Waterproof) capabilities, I can say that they held up a few times I wore them in the rain but it's been a while since they've see any rain/wet weather. Possibly a reconditioning with some Nikwax might be worth doing. I typically wore these when riding to job sites, as they are rather "stealthy" and didn't make it look like I was heading to the moon or getting ready for combat. As for fitment, TCX seem to run true to size and for me, they fit spot on! Size 41 EU is the equivalent to size 8 US and so far all of my TCX boots seem to fit perfectly. I can say that boots of these type are more for looks than protection, I do feel that these boots have good protection in the areas that they are intended to cover. I had no reservation wearing them any time I rode and was not doing any real "spirited" riding. i.e. When commuting. One small gripe about these is the Velcro strap that covers the laces. The strap seems a bit short to me and sometimes it getting it secured was a bit of a nuisance. Other than that these boots were my go to boots for a while. I ended up repairing another set of TXC boots (Jupiter 2) which are Gore-Tex and went back to wearing those instead. The original price for these boots was from $99-$129 depending when you bought them. I'm asking $45 and will include shipping to the lower 48 states. AK & HI or outside the US, buyer pays for shipping.
  4. Sorry, the closest I could come to a Red 2014 with White wheels is my Red 2001 with White wheels. Regardless of year, I think the Red and White combo looks great.
  5. I have a pair of Dainese X-Travel Goretex gloves for sale. I bought these with the intention of using them with some heated glove liners, so they are one size larger than I would normally wear. I recently found a set of heated gloves that essentially ticked all the boxes of what I want in a heated glove so I'm selling these. I'm asking $125.00 (Plus shipping). Original price was closer to $249 but I bought them earlier this year on close out for $149. I have only wore them a couple of times on the bike just to see how they would work and other than being a little more bulky with the heated liners in, they actually felt really good. They also worked well without the liners but they were slightly loose due to being one size up. Had they been my exact size, I'd definitely keep them. These are essentially brand new gloves, hence my asking price. Two features that stood out for me are the touch tech finger tips, which allows you to use a touch screen without having to remove the gloves. The other is the dual cuff system. Where an inner cuff goes under the jacket sleeve and the outer cuff goes on top of the jacket sleeve. If you ever ridden in the rain, you know how important having the glove under the jacket sleeve can be for keeping your hands dry. Here is a video review from Revzilla for more info.
  6. I have a pair of Rev'it Summt2 H2O gloves for sale. I've had them for about 1.5 years and they are in great shape. I recently purchased a set of replacement gloves so these are up for sale. I'm asking $40 for them and can say the last time I used them they did get a little water logged but it was coming down pretty hard and it was a 2 hour ride to San Diego that day. I did a Nikwax treatment on them a few months ago just to refresh their water shedding abilities but have not ridden in the rain with them since that was done. For the most part they are a good glove but they are not a true winter glove but do work fine for So Cal "winters", at least they have been for me. Buyer pays for shipping. Here's a link to a review done by Revzilla.
  7. I have a size 52 Dainese D-Dry Jacket, I believe it is the Avro model but not 100% sure. It is a few years old but is still in good condition. The only issue I have had with it is the zipper pull broke. The zipper is fine otherwise but I improvised and used a safety wire safety pin to replace the broken/missing pull. The jacket is water proof, it's been a while since I wore it in the rain but when I did, it kept me dry. I did do a Nikwax treatment a few months ago but have not ridden in the rain yet. I bought a replacement jacket so I no longer need this one so it's up for sale. I'm asking $60 for it and it even has a removable quilted liner and is very warm with it installed and is comfortable without it up to 75*F with the shoulder and back vents open. (At least for me it is) The jacket has a few outer pockets and a rear pocket for a back protector, but only the internal pocket of the quilted liner would be waterproof. There is shoulder and elbow/arm armor, I believe it's CE Level 1. Buyer pays for shipping.
  8. Welcome Abaord Rayzerman! There’s loads of information to be found here that’s for sure, also one of the best web forums you’ll find.
  9. Sorry for the lack of response, both sfdownhill and I were busy all weekend. That being said, the cut off was a little while back but it's possible that there could be another run, all depends on how the builder feels after this one.
  10. I bought Blue for my Red 5 Gen and Red for my Black 6 Gen. The latter has a red and black theme going.
  11. Here's their Honda VFR800 page. https://www.as3performance.co.uk/silicone-radiator-hoses/road/honda/vfr-800/ For anyone looking to order, if you have a 98-99, the 5 Gen kit will be complete, at least mine had all the hoses for those two model years. If ordering for an 00-01, I would suggest an email or phone call to ensure the two wax unit hoses not part of the "original" 98-99 kit get included. I'm not sure if they are items thrown in on all 5 Gen kits now that they have them made or that you have to ask for them, so the latter would be the path I would take, just to be sure. BTW, I also recommend getting their hose clamp kit. FYI, SF and I had been corresponding with Ben and I think he is in charge of customer service so he would be the one in the know in regards to the two wax unit hoses. You can let him know it was the hoses that Darryl and Lance had worked with him on getting made if he needs clarification.
  12. To follow up on the 5 Gen wax idle hoses, I made a post on my installation. The hoses are now available...
  13. A while back I had purchased a set of AS3 silicone coolant hoses for my 5 Gen and for the most part the kit was complete, well if you had a 98-99 5 Gen the kit would have been complete. However, for the 00-01 models, which have the wax idle unit, there were two hoses that were not part of the kit. Well after a few phone calls and quite few emails from myself and sfdownhill, we were able to get AS3 to make the two hoses that were not available a few months ago. So for any 00-01 owners who are looking at silicone coolant hoses, they cab be assured that the kit will be complete for the 00-01 5 Gen. That being said, there's always a price to pay right? Of course there is. On the one hand, the hoses are now available but on the other, since the new hoses are quite a bit larger in diameter than the OEM hoses, fitment without modification to a mounting bracket may make installation a bit difficult. I received the two hoses from AS3 a while ago but was only able to get to the installation this past weekend. With that, here is what I found... For starters, both hoses are pretty close to the OEM hoses, with one slight issue, the hose that comes from the left side of the bike to the wax unit appears to be a little too long as-is. We'll have to let AS3 know but being that it's longer, actually makes it not that big of a deal, as a razor knife can take care of the length pretty easily. Here are the hoses compared to the OEM... This is the hose that Honda doesn't make anymore and was one that SF and I were able to acquire from eBay and send to to AS3 to build theirs from. This hose is actually still available from Honda and is the one that was a bit longer than the OEM hose. I ended up cutting mine down to size. - Now that I had the two "missing" hoses, I proceeded to install them and this is where I found a slight issue with the larger outer diameter of the hoses. The OEM bracket that the wax unit bolts onto has an adequate opening for the OEM hoses but would be too small for these two hoses. (Fitting the cut down hose) (Attempting to fit the other hose) You'll notice the markings I made on the bracket with a sharpie, this was to get an approximate area to cut out for the hoses to fit. Once I removed the bracket, I then measure about 5mm in from the edges of the bracket and cut out the metal. Not quite as clean as I was hoping for but it was the best I could do with my Dremel. I probably didn't need to take so much off but I wanted to do one cut and since the bracket is pretty sturdy, I went for my previous measurements. As one might expect with all the different hoses and clamps that are needed, the hose clamps created another issue. I was able to get the lower hoses clamp from underneath as if I had it setup to tighten from above, the clamp screw would have gotten in the way of the curved black hose that is above it. even then, it was a little tricky trying to tighten the clamp from below but tilting the TB assembly sideways, I was able to get it. Well that's what I got for you. Hope this will be helpful to those looking for an AS3 hose kit for their 00-01 5 Gen.
  14. I believe that Wade was given the quantity and may have ordered the material but I’ll have to defer to Sfdownhill, as he’s the one that handles that side of things.
  15. If they replaced the SMC and the PCV, but not the rear MC, then I would rebuild it just to eliminate it from the equation. If you want to rebuild the front MC just for good measure, it wouldn’t hurt but the front MC shouldn’t be affecting the rear system. That being said, I would also check the brake pad clip and make sure that is installed the correct way. Although it fits in either way, it is designed to go in a specific way. The part that moves in and out should have the larger part of the clip on that side. If this doesn’t make sense, if you pull the clip out, you’ll see what I am talking about.
  16. I'd gladly give up the center stand for a left exit on my 5 Gen. In fact, I removed my center stand anyway and +1 on the ABBA stand.

    Love Ride 33

    Haven't been on one of these types of rides in decades! Seems I'll be missing this one too, I have family obligations on Sunday. Have a good ride!
  18. I can't image what 26 years without riding would be like, let alone be paraplegic for that long as well, he definitely has a lot of spirit. I heard from a few people that he's down in So Cal quite a bit as the Moto America HQ office is in Costa Mesa. My friend Steve ran into him and his family on Father's Day at a Red Robin right around the corner from where I live.
  19. Yes they can but you need to terminate the leads. Power Commander sells terminators for use with their tuning modules and they come with the mating connectors. You can also build your own using some electronic resisters but I don’t recall the ohm rating of them off hand. I’m sure someone here can chime in on what and how to do it yourself.
  20. I did and oil and coolant change today. Mileage is getting up there, 90,263 on the ODO Also helped a friend do the same for his bike with 119,557 miles. We also changed the spark plugs and fixed the seat latch release. Couldn’t get the seat off to lift the tank until we took off the rear cowl, which isn’t very easy when the seat is still on! It was a stuck cable, we were able to free up the cable and used some Teflon to lube it. Works great now.
  21. If I recall correctly, the 5/6 Gens will have 3 bungs, 2 in the OEM locations and 1 after the collector. The builder decided it would be easier and more effective time wise just to build them all the same. SF will have to chime to confirm but I believe the 8 Gen will have 1 in the OEM location with the same bung size (12mm) and 1 18mm located post collector.
