  2. Yes, this. My bike was running crazy hot last summer. It too was running lean.
  3. First off, very helpful post. Second, Ho Lee Phuk that bike is gorgeous!!!!!!
  4. I guess it doesn't like the cold...

    I've ordered 2 batteries from Chrome Battery and they have always worked, regardless of hot or cold. https://www.chromebattery.com/motorcycles/1999-honda-cbr1100xx+super+blackbird-ytx12+bs-battery.html $35 with an 18 month warranty.
  5. driving lights on 5th gen

    Someone here has clear front turn signals on his/her 5th gen with switchback led bulbs. They are white until the turn signal is used, then they flash amber. I don't know how much additional light they would provide, but I know it would make your bike a lot more noticeable. https://www.ebay.com/itm/172813211224?var=471595970864 https://www.google.com/search?q=led+switchback+bulbs
  6. From my post over at the other VFR Forum. I know you aren't looking for top end, but this is my experience with adding a map on my PCII: I have noticed a big increase in mid range too. Accelerating to pass someone on the freeway is a simple matter of twisting the throttle.
  7. Loads and loads

    Thanks Max, I was just thinking about that yesterday. On a 5th gen, which bulbs for the dash? I really need to put new bulbs there and I want leds
  8. Post Crash Vibration

    Thanks on both accounts. I'll definitely give autodip a look and I'll try the hammer suggestion.
  9. Hey all. First, let me say that my bike is running very well. Since the crash, I was able to upload a new map to the Power Commander 2 I have and what a difference it has made. I think before it was running very lean, which may have been a big factor in my high temps. I have a nice gurgle on over-run now that wasn't as noticeable before. I will b e pulling all the fairings off again to start my Plasti-Dip color experiments, so since my bike did take quite a wallop, I would like to loosen and re-torque all of the engine mounts. The engine is most definitely much more coarse in the vibes, noticeably so. Runs like race bike, but the mirrors are super fuzzy now, where they used to be very clear. I will also be sending my injectors in for cleaning just as soon as I can actually get the one screw out of my velocity stack. Even with a special Japanese screwdriver as recommended by Duc2V4, I can't get it out and I"m afraid it's near to being stripped. Also, while it's naked, I'll double check all electrical connections and grounds as well as change the plugs and balance the starter valves. So, please correct me if I have my generations wrong, but isn't there a engine mount bolt that is backwards, while all of the others are normal? If so, then which bolt is it? I sure as hell don't want to break it!!! If anyone could guide me in the service manual, I'd be grateful. I'll look right now, but first hand experience goes a long ways, even with the FSM. I looked at the FSM downloaded from here and there is nothing mentioned. Is that just a 6th gen thing? Thank you. P.S. the vibration is most definitely engine related, as it perfectly matches engine rpm.
  10. Hi all, To install the relay, so I need to unplug the stock relay under the instrument cluster, then replace it with the other or is there another solution for the switchback front indicator bulbs, besides the spliced in inline resistors? I only ask this because I literally just put my bike back together after a crash. I do at some point have to remove the fairings to repaint them, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to through all of that quite yet. Thanks
  11. Rearsets for 5th gen.?

    Reviving this thread because I can't find the one about the finished product. Anyone have a link?
  12. Thanks for the write up! Jamie is building his own shock now for the 5th gen. I don't a long time in the phone with him. He's been planning it fire about 4-5 years now, but what he's been doing had been so popular. He finally pulled the plug on the 929 shocks to concentrate on his own shock. Should be available pretty soon. He also is redoing his website, so be patient. He's also working on that too. Hopefully I'll get his new shock soon. I also want the drop in cartridges for the forks.

    The maps I downloaded from here.
  14. Power Commander 2

    I bought this cable based on a recommendation from a member here. After I installed the drivers on a Windows 7 laptop, I tried it. Thought it didn't work, them I had the thought to try holding all the buttons down while I switched the ignition to on. It didn't immediately work, but when I then tried it again and held the buttons down for about fifteen seconds (or so), and it connected! As long as I follow this protocol, it connects every time! Sabrent USB 2.0 to Serial (9-Pin) DB-9 RS-232 Converter Cable, Prolific Chipset, Hexnuts, [Windows 10/8.1/8/7/VISTA/XP, Mac OS X 10.6 and Above] 2.5 Feet (CB-DB9P) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IDSM6BW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_qAPFAbAGQNDCA I installed a map that uses 93 octane. I have a K&N air filter with Delkevic header and a Two Brothers Racing pipe. I'm wrapping up some fairing repairs and then I'll be riding again.
