    Tires again !!

    Of course I run different pressures on my rear dually, sometime even left to right and of course load, but till you mentioned it, I’ve never thought about my bike tires. I’ll try your 37psi as a baseline. Mahalo.
  2. Has just about the right amount of black😎

    Tires again !!

    My usual ride is 15 miles on Oahu’s crater sized pothole roadways where I doubt I see 60 mph for more than a few seconds, but have never thought but to inflate 36F/42R. Any suggestions?

    Broken mirror

    Ditto. My right side broke on a tip over. I thought by now someone would have discovered a good replacement for a great price.

    High sight glass oil

    Thanks for the inputs. Coolant is good. Same level. I checked the sight glass at the same place.
  6. On the last two oil changes I noticed a higher oil level than when I changed it last ( every 3k Miles). I let the old oil drain and changed the filter, then carefully measured the correct amount. It’s been about 2 weeks (short trips totalling about 300 Miles) and the oil level seems higher than when I checked the day after the change.

    New Exhaust

    Great looker😎.
  8. Without the resources of 129 bikes, I make do with Helibars, the easiest to install and less costly improvement over the stock ones, but several other types, some requiring new longer cables and hoses would probably be better suited. My “gold” standard was my ‘76 GL-1000 w/ a Vetter Windjamer.

    Veefalo turned 60!

    Hoping mine will look as good at 60!
  10. Look here or u-tube for fairing removal. It’s a bit tricky if you don’t know how the invisible clips work. I have a 2012 and was interested in the Guhl reflash till I flipped the throttle half open and nearly fell off. Yeah, I’m old and weak. I believe the traction control will cut the power if the front wheel comes off the ground. Hope you enjoy your 1200 as much as I have. Welcome.

    Engine heat

    Just read a write up about the new Indian V-twin that has rear cylinder deactivation to prevent rider heat discomfort. The article points out the VFR 1200F has this feature too. If indeed it has this feature, it’s seamless to me and I’ve not been bothered by any excessive heat,
  12. Just read a write up on the new Indian V-twin that says it has rear cylinder deactivation “like the VFR-1200F.” The article points out that this feature prevents heat build up and may contribute to better fuel mileage. I don’t know if my ‘12 VFR12 has this feature, but could this be contributing to your vibration? Others have mention heat at the right foot. I’ve not experienced either the heat nor the vibration, but if my bike that’s this feature, it’s probably not working because I average about 39 mpg.

    Selling my 2012 VFR1200F

    You’ll be sorry. VFR1200 are destine to be a cult bike worth thousands in the distant future 🤑!
  14. No anticipated snow here, but I’ll ride till Hurricane Lane arrives on Friday.

    Engine oil recommendations

    Just cause it’s a wet clutch oil gets circulated throughout the engine, I like changing the oil and filter every 3k Miles. wonder was Dae’s maintenance schedule is?
