  1. My 2c is 190/55 on a 6 inch every time A 180/55 stretched over a 6inch rim will flatten out and be less sharp. Harder to transition from the centre of the tyre to the edge. When I was converting to a 1098s rear wheel, i needed a tyre. I went with a 190/50 as it would fit the stock 5.5 and 1098s 6" It was "OK" on the 5.5, It felt horrible on the 6". This is what i imagine a stretched 180/55 would feel like. Changed to a 190/55 as soon as i could afford it. And gratuitous tyre pic to join in
  2. on my 5th gen i attached them to the air box, and then went to a COP conversion.
  3. its not just vfrs, its modified bikes generally. Also with covid 19, it is any discretionary spending. I had a 2014 model 09 before, so looking forward to tweaking it. it will still look like an 09, but i am going to make it punch above its weight.
  4. yeah mate i know. Sold it to a seth african guy who sold his speed triple before he left SA to move to aus. He looked at it for 2 minutes before he said sold. He sent me a text after he had taken it for a proper ride and said he was thoroughly impressed. Its gone to a good home, and didnt need to get stripped and sold for parts.
  5. After i sold the cb500 super commuter and bought an MT09 i started trying to figure out how to get more power out of the vfr and realised I couldn't justify the bang for my buck. So, after about 9 years, I sold the VFR. I will definitely miss it. Nothing will match the sound of the V4 and GDC, On the plus side, I can afford suspension and a woolich race tune for the MT09. I sold a whole lotta bike for not much money, but these are interesting times. I wont be dropping in as much, but this is one of the great places on the internet.
  6. Oooh, left high mount would show off my lurid green 1098s rear wheel nicely...
  7. I connected my OEM brake light switch with a simple L bracket. And i love your choice of wheel.

    Old Truck Stop Putty Rd

    Ive never ridden the putty. We should go for a ride sometime.
  9. For even more performance, you could remove the centre stand? Yes, a little jelous i dont have a set.
  10. There's my something new for the day. Id never thought of that. Explains why, when i rotated the oem symmetrical clamps to be forward on my old ktm 640SM it suddenly felt like i was holding the axle in my hands it was so responsive.
  11. comfortable bars will vary person to person, and bike to bike, because your feet/hips/hands all have to work together to be comfortable, so pegs/seat/bars all need to work together. If the pegs say sit upright because they are low, the seat says lean forward (say, if you have a longer shock so the rear is higher), and the bars say sit upright, it will feel slightly off, as well.
  12. Like highside NZ, since ive got a front mount rad, and low mounted oil cooler, the 8th gen splayed pipes would come in handy for me and my 5th gen too. Nice work, we are almost up and running.
