  1. A great day to be out, and yes, whitey and me became good friends. Bike handles great. I did hve a 1998 version, but this 2K version is different.. Not on the chassis, but engine wise, everything is much smoother.. At low rpms throughout the middle towards redline, there are no hickups or flat spots.. I guess the updated version nailed it for me.. She's welcome to stay..
  2. Yes. There is enough clearance to keep the exhaust in place.
  3. And.. I want it high uo and following the lines of the rear cowl.. That\s c;lose enough...
  4. Well today was rainy.. So lets spend the day to get the exhaust update to a high mount.. That needs some tubing from the bottom end upwards..
  5. If it doesn't rain tomorrow, it will be playtime..
  6. Not sure on VFR1200 series, I never did any work on them. But you did say you swapped the throttle bodies. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the VFR1200 has a TPS sensor.. TPS- thottle position sensor. Has that been set according to your engine ?
  7. That bad looking came from whitey.. The good looking engine came with the donor.. Don't get me wrong.. My 1000R mill looked worse, and in fact was seized after two years neglecting/non running.. But it came out nice after a full resto.. Full engine resto means another 200 hrs.. The donor saved me a lot of time..
  8. She got the manual back again.. The throttle housing on the 2000 model looked like a nightmare to revive. Everything is corroded. Also it requires the coolant recirculation, so different waterpipes and thermostat housing.. For know I installed the throttle housiing of the donor bike. So the cable is back.. I saved all the parts to install that back in the near future, but for now it is working.. IIRC the cable isn't realy a choke, it is a fast idle function.. Thanks for your input, it is well received..
  9. Today she breathed air for the first time since the rebuild.. Next.. take care of all the tupperware..
  10. Thanks, The reason why I got puzzled, was that the 2000 onward model has a different top mount and handlebars. The locking bolts are in a different position. The handlebars between the pre 2000 model without HISS and the 2000 onward models with HISS are different, and not exchangeable.
  11. Thanks,RC36B my manual wasn't as clear as your pic.. I did install them behind the legs, so I am assured it is good.. Also the bands on the cluster / frame stay wiring make sense now.. They are welded upward, like (to me) Honda installed them wrong way around.. You have to fold them down against it's welding position to hold the wiring.. Weird..
  12. The exhaust headers and gave them a new coating, worked on misc. bits and finished the day with the bike looking like this:
  13. The trick with the lcd swap withen the cluster did the trick. Allthough the donor bikes cluster was trashed, the lcd was still in good condition. Swapped the LCD's out en presto, the mileage went down from 106,000 kilometers to 29,000 kilometers. I never owned a bike with that a low odo reading.
