  1. Thanks guys, however is it possible to use the VFR cartridge with F4i lower cases only? The part numbers for the cases are 51420-mbw and 51520-mbw. I've managed to find some lower cases for a good price but obviously they don't come with any cartridges... My main objective is to replace the linked brakes with brakes from a F4i. I would like to use as much of the vfr fork internals as possible initially to keep costs down.... The ultimate goal is to upgrade to a DMr BD20 fork cartridge but in the short term was hoping to get up and running with brake upgrade only... Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  2. I'm considering using 6th Gen fork tubes and F4i lowers on my 6th Gen. Looking at part numbers (90126) it looks like the lower cartridge retaining bolts are different diameters and lengths ( 8x27mm vs 10x35mm.) How did you overcome this issue? Did you use the 6th cartridge or install a custom one? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  3. My 6th Gen has 14 stamped on the master cylinder and the 8th Gen also has 14 stamped on it but the part number is different. Not sure if there are any other differences but I'm also interested in fitting a radial master cylinder. The Brembo stuff looks nice but £££... Which Nissin radial master cylinder did you use? Was it a used part of another bike? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  4. Hi Minicarver Thanks a lot for the invaluablefor info - shame about the wheels being incompatible but as it happens I do prefer the Lok of 8th gen wheels. I would probably want a matching set I think I read somewhere that you can just change part of the rear hub rather than the entire swingarm. The parts required keep growing! Yes mudguard is English English for fender... Lol. So far I've just got hold of a set of 8th gen front calipers. I can see why you went with the brembos as the tokico calipers look pretty basic and I've read about lots of issues with their aluminium pistons not servivng British winters.

  5. Looking at ditching the combined brakes on my 2003 and I like the look and simplicity of the 8th setup. Anyone know if 8th Gen forks or even just the fork lowers will work on a 6th gen? Would like to retain the 6th front wheel and brake rotors for the time being (to keep cost and barriers to this going ahead) so hoping it will still fit with 8th gen forks and front brakes. Anyone know for sure? What about mudguard??? Also, the 8th Gen forks look like this hey have more adjustability... Are they much of an upgrade of 6th gen? I'm hoping the 6th master cylinder will work with the 8rh radial brakes. Anyone know for sure? Rear brake wise, I'm thinking of either only using outer pistons or using a different size master cylinder. Is there much of a difference performance wise? Thanks!

  6. Iiking the 8th gen forks and brakes...can you do a build thread for us? Interested in doing the same for my 6th gen and keen to know if the 6th gen fork uppers and brake master cylinders can be used... Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  7. Hi Urbanenginner Where do you live? I'm from the UK and Honda don't know anything about a harness recall. I solved my electrical problems using the blue connector fix but would prefer a replacement harness if it's improved... Sent from my HTC One_M8 using Tapatalk

  9. The thread is hidden away in a members only part of the site. There is something like 320 odd posts so it might be worth becoming a sponsor just to read that thread! I got the impression mark would not attempt it again... http://www.bikersoracle.com/vfr/forum/showthread.php?t=80779
