  1. Leo Vince SBK Carbon fiber look. Got them used for about half price of new. Even then , I debated long and hard over whether or not it was worth hundreds of dollars... in the end I went for it, I love the VFR and intend to keep it as long as it runs. I'm still undecided if they were worth the money... but they do look good and sound excellent. Tried the silencers, they work...but I ride without 😀
  2. I'm just going to drop this picture and continue on my way...
  3. They are stainless... my 02 had a bit of a rougher life before i got it, but even with surface corrosion on the pipes i was able to get it mostly off the front downpipes with some good scrubbing... used a green scotch brite pad and alternating brake cleaner and wd 40. I didnt worry about the rest of the system as its less obvious to see. Some day... or replace with the TBR replica system....
  4. Sparkie's making a fair point but I've not seen any '14/15's in Canada approaching 5500.... people still want that kind of coin for their 6gen VFR's. I'd say based on prices i see around the country, if you can get into the low 7k range you are doing well. Sub-$7k i'd buy for sure.
  5. If it looks good and runs well, and the fairings are all attached securely and line up nicely, I would still consider buying. The feedback above is valid and I would suspect fairings are aftermarket (or at least repainted which seems less likely), and the bike may have sustained tip-over or gentle crash damage (is that a scuff on the leading edge of clutch case on the middle 'fin'/'ridge'?) Just use those points to work down the price a bit and ride away happy! Nothing I can see in the pics that says run for the hills... if the engine pulls strong, brakes are smooth, bike tracks
  6. That'll work! I like the black remote canister, looks sleek At some point I removed the front zip tie showing in my old pic above.... the other two are relatively 'straight' and are not noticeable No issues in the 4 years or so that I've had the shock
  7. Agreed with danll... i just dealt with this problem on my 02; PO had torqued the bolts and when i went to remove the CCT, as soon as i put the ratchet on the first bolt the head sheared clean off. D'oh!
  8. 11 years later, the truth lives. Quick backstory - bought my 02 VFR used in 2012. When I installed a K&N, I noticed the airbox velocity stack bolts were all stripped... odd, what did the PO do under the airbox? A year later I installed a PC 5, had to go under the airbox - first extract the stripped screws [one was so bad I actually dremel'ed off the velocity stack for better access] no sign of damage or any other ham-fisted repairs/'upgrades', so who knows... forget about it. To present - front CCT has been clacking off and on for a couple of years, seems to be ge
  9. Yep that was my solution and still holding strong years later. THe only reason i had to chop into the battery tray was that with a passenger on the bike, i found the reservoir [mounted in same location but prior to cutting the battery tray] was pushing on the brake lines. This solved it. Yeah i should really invest in some nicer clamps instead of zip ties but when you are standing looking at the bike you barely notice it. pic from a couple weeks ago
  10. Great work, thanks for sharing and please keep the updates coming
  11. Installed mine yesterday as my voltmeter & USB arrived via slow China post... great part made by TT. Install of everything was super easy, spent more time on the wire routing than anything else. (I have since cleaned up the jumble of red/blue on the lower left)
  12. I sent Jamie my forks for him to install his kit and also got one of his rebuilt CBR shocks... worth every penny, and he was great to deal with and for any support after the fact. Also no issues shipping from Canada to him and back. I'd do it again and I'd have full confidence in buying his new product.
  13. Good solution, but any reason not to just dremel out the sides of both openings ("speed holes") a little wider to allow the clearance and have a visual match? Seems to me it may look better than bent plastic. Trying to save up the $ myself for a set for my 6g...
  14. 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...
