  1. Really cool to watch how this is unfolding.
  2. I'd go with 3M Scotchguard or XPEL film to cover the lenses. The XPEL is easier to apply and tends to yellow less. It does a remarkable job of protection as well. Unless you're constantly on gravel roads with your VFR it's unlikely you'll ever break the polycarbonate lenses on the bike. We have lots of spring gravel left over from the winter and I can't think of anyone I know that has had a broken lens. You could film over the whole bike (I've done that on my Africa Twin). https://thetankslapper.biz/film/ https://thetankslapper.biz/vfr800f-total-protection-kit/
  3. Give the chain a thorough clean - it's really rusty and dirty looking. See if it turns better and rolls evenly through the sprockets. Could just be gunk and crap stuck in the links. My guess is that chain (and sprocket set) is done - it sounds like you have links that are not flexing and rolling as the chain rotates around the sprocket. I doubt it would be brakes or bearings - those really last a long time but maybe pull out the rear pads and have a look. If the previous owner let the chain get to that state you may have some maintenance to do on the bike.
  4. Check out Admore Lighting. I had one on my 2005 VFR OEM top case. Made a big difference for visibility. Excellent company to deal with and good quality lights. https://admorelighting.com/product/honda-45l-top-case-led-kit-ts-ry/
  5. When I sold my 2005 it had 90,000 kilometres on it. Clutch was still fine but if I'd kept the bike I probably would have changed it soon just to be sure. Unless your clutch is acting up, I'm not sure I'd bother. Especially as it sounds like you (and me) are not riding 12 o'clock wheelies and doing 50 burnouts a day.
  6. Use the correct amount of the force ( on your oil filter). 😝
  7. This is an easy mistake to make if your last filter got the seal stuck on the motor. If you're not paying attention it's really easy to miss the old seal stuck on their and put on a new filter.
  8. I didn't have to do mine until about 50,000 kilometres. That's when they started to weep but only out of one side. Changed the seals and bushings and rode it until 90,000 kilometres when I sold mine.
  9. Good pics! Ride while you can. Days are numbered here, too.
  10. Carb cleaner will dissolve it with very little effort. You may use quite a bit to clean things up but it works.
  11. This is a rider with their priorities in order. 🙂
  12. Hi superfunkomatic, Thank you for your donation of 25.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  13. Indeed. Really enjoyed your company at the meet last summer, too. Our paths will cross again. :)
  14. Well, as luck would have it, my original statement holds true. I wasn't sure if I'd be going in spite of already booking the hotel room, and, I won't be attending after all. That will free up one room at the hotel if someone is still interested. I'll contact the hotel today and let them know. I hope everyone has a great ride and time. Mike
  15. Booked. I'm not sure if I can actually make it yet but I've booked a room just in case.
