  1. The only thing to look for is if the recall for the drive shaft has been done. Get the VIN and you can check with any Honda Powersports dealer.
  2. It was no beauty queen when I got her, I'll give you that. But she was a looker when I sold her! The only I really wanted to replace at that stage was the headers. lol, nope! The 6th gen & I just never clicked. I am however happy to know it ended up with such an illustrious rider though!
  3. Thanks for that link Cogswell. Looks like the guy I sold my bike still had it in 2014. Nothing past that though. Odd that it doesn't list the mileage from when I sold it to him though. Really wish I could find that bike again. Lot of good memories riding it. Heck, I learned a lot about how to work on a bike with that one. Also got to hang out in the garage with @mello dude because of that bike. Yeah, I miss it dearly.
  4. I tried to find my old 5th gen just a little while back. I sold it to a fellow forum member from my Nighthawk days. I tried his old phone number and email address, but they no longer worked. I found him on Facebook, but it was extremely out of date. I sure hope nothing happened to the guy. Anyways, best of luck in your search!
  5. I swear that looks like my cousins old house! Is this south of Dayton? It was pretty miserable around here the week of the 4th, hope your trip was great nevertheless!
  6. Wow! That could just as easily be me & my bike in that picture! Well, except for the great lean angle. And the high gloss shine. And the rider being trim and in shape. But besides that, we're exactly the same!

    Day out after a wash

    Damn... that is one beautiful bike! The forks, rearsets and Staintune? You've got it all!
  8. I didn't re-read the entire thread, but I am pretty sure that Larry's bike is a RC45 and not a 5th gen. So the swingarms would not be swappable. Just my best guess.
  9. That was a big concern of mine in the beginning. The whole reason I started looking at other bikes years ago was because of the inherent buzziness of the inline 4. I sure as heck didn't want that on my VFR, so I went with the BLS blocks. The V4 design is inherently smoother so it wasn't really an issue but I wanted to be sure. After I bought my 6th gen and it had the MRA version of the adjustables with a teeny tiny thin strip of rubber I realized it made very little difference whether I rode with my boots or just regular shoes. On my 7th gen, I just went with the Buells since they were cheap and gave me the clearance. The i The knurling on the Buell footbegs is not very aggressive: I would bet the the toe of the shoe would receive more wear from shifting than the sole from the pegs.
  10. Just to clarify or expand on my previous post, I bought the BLS blocks for my 5th gen and loved them! My 6th gen came with the adjustable pegs. I would have bought a pair of blocks for my 7th gen, but no one ever visited BLS for him to make some. That left the Buel footpegs. *edited once I made it to a computer to be more descriptive.
  11. I had the MRA version of those footpegs on my 6th gen. Hated them. While the ability to adjust them was nice, the fact is that they moved your foot out away from center. So when shifting gears or braking, you would have to point your toes towards the inside. Several missed shifts occurred because of that. I have the Buell footpegs on my 7th gen and love them. Here is the original post about the Buell footpegs I used: I think $45 is about what I spent too. <edit> Found them online: https://shop.newcastlehd.com/part/n05201ad - left https://shop.newcastlehd.com/part/n05211ad - right

    It's like a V4orgy!
  14. I think it is an totally fair price. The only reason I haven't bought one yet is because of the kids school expense. I can't see the pictures you posted, but I saw nothing wrong with the most recent design.

    had a puncture

    Well thank goodness the flat happened in such a serene spot and not on a major highway!
