  1. Oh sure Maxswell, bring that scientific approach into the argument about the fastest color!!!! Who ya gonna believe, some nerd or the seat of your own pants??? Heres Collin Edwards from a few years back... Yeller all over the place.....and fast!!!!! No gas mileage however...
  2. A Big Aloha to all, and a Happy 2019. Gas Mileage question on the VFR's!!!!! I have 6 VFR's, had 7 but sold my 2002 last year. Starting with my 86 RWB 750cc and then my 87 White 700cc up thru the generations to my 2003 Silver. All of them get regularly 45 to 50 MPG depending on the Loud Handle Positioning. Some have the air box mods, some do not, doesn't make any MPG difference. I did an Iron Butt a few years ago by myself from San Antonio to west of Phoenix in 15 hours. 1050 miles. Here is my point to this Viffer MPG question, its all about the LOUD HANDLE!!!! On that day of my Iron Butt I was running pretty much 100 to 110 MPH all day and into the night. Had to stop a lot for gas!!! Was getting 30 MPG at that sustained speed so had to stop def before 150 miles on the trip odo. One stretch thru Texas I pushed it too far, didn't see any gas stations coming up, finally pulled into a gas station, the Viffer to took exactly 5.5 gallons. It was completely empty!!!! The only reason I made it to that station was due to easing off on the LOUD HANDLE, slowing down to 45 MPH for about the last 20 miles. Normally 45 to 50 MPG for my scooters and all my friends that also ride VFR's. By the way, the Yellow models are the fastest, everyone knows Yellow is a fast color. Have a safe and enjoyable 2019.

  3. Heres a trick I have done a few times in my 61 years of working on and riding these 2 wheeled machines. Remove the shifter from the shaft, remove the pinch bolt, put the shifter in a good vise with the slot of the shifter where the bolt goes thru in a position where you can get a thin cut off wheel or a thin file into the slot. Remove a few thousands of the inside material so the pinch bolt can squeeze it to the shaft tighter than before. Good idea to replace the bolt with a new one as well. I have done this mainly on dirt bikes back thru the years. They get beat on really bad in desert racing and endures, not so much with street bikes unless they have been run and used in a loose condition. The price is right!!!!!!!!!! Good Luck, Renzo
  4. I have a 86 and a 87. The 86 is RWB with only 12K miles, the 87 is White with 45K... Also have a 97, a98, a99 and a 2003. Keep us posted on the Hindle. Would like one for my 86. I'll get a 2nd. mortgage!!! Thanks for the heads up, Renzo
