    What did you do to your VFR Today?

    I did not have to do that, no. The suction on the tool seems to do a good enough job. I always do a few final quick crack open 'bleeds' while the other person is holding down the brake or clutch lever. Pushes that last bit of air out.

    I got mine cheaply at Harbor Freight.

    VFR Motor in Refurbished 72 Honda N600 Auto

    I can see the appeal. An early Miata has all of 120-130hp and weighs 2200lb. It's more than enough grunt to get a small car around. Then add the amazing sound of the VFR800 engine.. totally a crowd pleaser.

    Battery: YTZ14s vs YTZ12s?

    I'd be going for the 14S myself. See no reason not to get the bigger battery.

    Those things make bleeding brakes a breeze. Even my 5th gen took me no time at all a few weekends ago. Amazing tool!

    Tires on sale??

    Yeah I may just shelve plans to getting the 98 back on the road until the next tire sale. The gift card usually offsets the cost to shoe them on.

    Really need a pair of shoes for my 98 so I can get her back on the road for her 21st year! Her PR3s are dated 2012 and that's a no-go for me. Anyone find anything?
  8. Yes, you will need a plate (or) use a single bolt to affix.

    She's gone.

    Some people rub others the wrong way, and it's apparent I wasn't the only one. I'm not gonna reply trying to backtrack and claim I was kidding, either. Being said, still happy to give him, or anyone for that matter, technical advice for anything VFR related though.

    The videos spoke for themselves re:skill level; he is why people cringe when you say "I'm going to buy a motorcycle." I'm just glad he didn't stick around long enough to be a statistic. Good riddance if you ask me.

    Gas mileage on a 98 5th gen

    I second everything you posted. Seafoam direct into the TB and a smoke show should help clean them up. Always impresses the neighbors when your vehicle becomes a smoke machine /s
  12. 6.5G failures start to occur between 30-40kmi usually. I'd always suggest a series regulator like the SH847 on any VFR800 prior to gen 8, and to bypass the stock wiring when installing it. It may lengthen stator life.
  13. 1) Re: Note c - can we have Wade perform the expansion of our midpipe connector for an additional fee? (applies to local members only I'd imagine) 1a) Re: Note c- Possible to pay extra to have the 49mm midpipe connection as modifying a Staintune may be out of the question for me.

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    Color me surprised, someone actually did it. Once they start shipping I'll pickup a high mileage 5th gen to beat on and grab a set for it. I have an old trusty Power Commander 2 ready to go 😄

    Gas mileage on a 98 5th gen

    Mine has had ~32-38mpg since 1199 miles on the ODO. I manage 44mpg on the 8th gen. Wife gets 48mpg on her 8th gen, softer on the throttle and weighs less. Rider weight and luggage also factor in. Heck, so does tire pressure. Rolling resistance goes up a ton even if psi is down by 5-10.
