  1. Interested if you could post up any tips from the process.. I have a 2002 as well at ~40k miles, I haven't opened the stator in the time I've owned it, so unkown status. I wasn't sure what exactly is required to change to the 'updated' (03+) stator, but at some point I'll have to get in there
  2. Its a fair point, but the same could be said when I purchased the bike with >40,000km on it...
  3. 1. I dont want to pay $800-1000 CAD... I can literally get a replacement engine for half that if need be, which I doubt will be necessary 2. I don't trust the Honda dealer to do it (the same old story, every time the bike goes in they forget fairing clips, or don't torque something to spec, etc... generally rushed/sloppy work) But when I finally have my garage built next year, I will attempt to do it myself over the winter for peace of mind. It sounds like an involved process, but I've done valves before on 'regular' (non-VTEC) engines, and with space and time I suspect I could do this. Going back to factors 1 & 2, and for those with no workshop (like myself currently), I absolutely get why so many aren't doing this.
  4. Scary stuff... outstanding job keeping it on two wheels after taking an impact and damage like that.
  5. Search craigslist / ebay / kijiji until you find good used at the right price. Got my Leo Vince in carbon fibre, in as-new condition, for $375 after maybe a year of regularly watching online...
  6. Glad you asked... i cleaned and spraypainted mine with high temp bbq paint, i guess i should have looked for chemical resistant or something I havent ridden since the paint peeled a bit into my oil, going to pull the plate and have it powdercoated - but now I'm curious if you think white pc can work? Think i should flush the oil for that bit of paint in it? Sigh...
  7. Measure your springs while you are in there... I also have an 02 with about 40k miles and 2 of the springs were below service limit. Replaced with Barnetts for ~$20
  8. Bam! Thanks to Seb for making these, and David (Switchblade) for sharing when he moved on from the VFR!
  9. I'm in - thank you for all of the time and effort you put into this site, the knowledge and contacts here are priceless.
  10. Hi rhoderage, Thank you for your donation of $25.00. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  11. This kind of stuff is a big part of why I'm so into my VFR - its a 15 y/o bike, and long after Honda moved on the enthusiasts are not only transplanting parts from other bikes on to ours, but actually engineering and creating new parts! Thanks for all the hard work, very awesome, and fun to follow the thread.
  12. I have one as well, and agree... 'set it and forget it'. Great option as it was somewhere around $50 cheaper than the Healtech unit.
