    What octane fuel are u using on your VFR?

    Spend money saved in the difference in price from the 87 to 91 and get non ethanol fuel if possible. Running Non ethanol fuel provided the only advantage that I have ever seen in performance and fuel mileage on the VFRs, from my '00 to my '07.

    Hawks

    Good call. I have come close to getting one of those before. Always liked those and the Bandit 400. The Bandit wasn't as trick as the CB1 but was a sexy bike. Someday I am hoping to get a CBR 400 Baby Blade in the garage, which were a close relative of the CB1 (both had gear driven cams as well... :)

    Hawks

    Well thanks for all the SH talk guys. I just happened to see a very neglected '05 at a dealership with low miles that needed a home. Can't believe what I bought it for. Those bikes sure aren't respected like they should be. I always have liked them and enjoyed riding them. The graphite silver was a one year color which I thought was slick. The PO removed the Superhawk 996 sticker which is still available from Honda, but to be honest I almost like it better without it. It has a set of TBR carbon cans which sound incredible and it looks like the PO also installed an aftermarket front fender. Other than that it is pretty stock. And so it begins lol 12000 miles Needs tires- putting my Michelin Road 5s on here to try. Needs a new chain and sprocket Needs a new battery and might as well replace the reg/ rectifier while I am at it. Needs a carb clean and possibly re-jet the carbs Needs all the fluids changed so I might as well swap out the old rubber brake lines for SS while I am at it Jamie is just up the road from me and a SH suspension guru owning one himself so I might as well have him dial her in suspension wise. I am not digging the giant stock turn signals in the front and probably need a bit more turn signal in the rear for safety. Looking forward to getting this poor girl back on the road!

    It is actually not that bad. We have moved since the picture was taken so I am more out in the country now. The first exhaust that I had on there was so loud that I could not even stand to ride it. But with that Exil fitted the bike is not all that loud unless you are really accelerating hard or decelerating in a lower gear. It certainly does not sound like a little 700 anymore.

    Probably the most fun bike that I have to rip around town. We don't have many curves in Indianapolis, other than round abouts. Hawks could be the most fun per hp bikes ever. Some before and after pics. Slo1 I am jealous of that wheel- very HRC. nice looking and rare grey tempest.

    Tires again !!

    Correct. I asked the Pirelli USA rep that exact question years ago and he confirmed that the GT A spec would not help on a 5th or 6th gen for mileage. It would be better suited for the 1200, in much the same way that the Michelin designs their Road 4/ GT.

    Michelin Road 5

    Excellent ride review, way to put them through their paces. The Michelin US 2 wheel market manager that I was talking to said that these would actually be pretty good "wets" to use for track days, since they have some of the Power RS DNA in them as well.

    Chinese silicone hose sets?

    Thanks for the update Duc. I sent Ben a note asking why they were not part of the kit. They really should be, I was under the assumption that I was purchasing a complete radiator hose refurb kit. That doesn't seem to be the case now. I will need that hose for my '07 as well, although I am sure i can still get an OEM Honda. But for the price of these silicone hoses it should come with everything...

    Chinese silicone hose sets?

    Hi Erik, You will receive the exact hoses in the picture but if you're missing anything when you receive them just let let me know. Thanks Ben Knowing how things usually go for these projects, I am going to guess that the hoses that go to the wax unit are not in there, but if you see otherwise let me know. I don't want to get into this project and realize that AS3 did not give me all of the hoses.

    Chinese silicone hose sets?

    Just bought a blue silicone hose kit for my RWB '07 and a red kit for my '01 from AS3 performance. great to work with so far, eager to get them installed soon.

    Oh no - not another scenery stop in this forsaken place...

    Loving the gold wheels with the red. Makes me reconsider powdercoating my 8 spoker black sometimes!

    07 RWB Luggage Still Available & Where to Buy?

    Yep, there was. Also rare and if you can find one they can be stupid expensive. In the end I just painted a red one. Personally I like the aftermarket Givi top boxes better anyways for alot less money. The Blade series looks better and you can get the backrest pad, inner bag and integrated brake light options as well for a lot less money than an OEM case... which coincidentally was also made by Givi... go figure!

    Hello from the frigid Midwest

    I fit Honda ST1300 heated grips to my 6th gen. Not easy to find, found a couple pairs of them a few years back from the UK. Work well but very stiff.

    07 RWB Luggage Still Available & Where to Buy?

    There was a dealer selling the side bags on ebay, they were not cheap by any means. I think they were almost $1000. I had a pair of red bags painted to match. They turned out pretty well. And then I stumbled on a guy selling some brand new ones cheap and bought a spare set. Just in case...
