  1. Hi TheLimey, Thank you for your donation of --. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  2. Still getting my bike back in one piece after the winter refresh, but I'd be up for a run up Squaw Pass or something once it's up and running.
  3. I'm rarely a fan of race rep paint jobs on VFRs, but that looks well. Nicely done on both the bike and forum handle.
  4. I'm a fan of the ABBA centre stands, myself. I bought one when I had my NC30 back in the UK, and then simply purchased an adapter kit when I acquired the RC46 in the states. It'll also mount to the rearset threads to facilitate swingarm removal and, with the use of another kit, allow you to remove the forks. https://abbastandsusa.com I removed the centre stand from my bike, along with the PAIR system and stock exhaust, within a month of owning my VFR and have never looked back.
  5. It's the same frame. I don't see why it wouldn't just bolt straight in.
  6. Citric acid is easily obtainable from any supermarket and will do wonders for a rusty steel part left overnight to soak in it.
  7. He's definitely still in business, I think he's just swamped since launching his own line of custom shocks. Give him a few days and he'll normally reply.
  8. I guess I'll cross those off the list of future purchases. Sorry it had to happen to you, though, mate. That sucks a fat one.
  9. I thought it had non-linked brakes? It always looked to me like F4i forks and brakes.
  10. Race Tech do TNK-branded ones at a mere US$191 each. I'm with Eggs on Leggs, though, if your stanctions are straight it has to be more cost effective to have them re-plated than replace them outright.
  11. I was trying to avoid going the custom route since I figured an off-the-shelf kit for another bike would probably work out cheaper, but it looks like it might just be the easiest way to get exactly what I need.
  12. Hey guys, I'm slowly gathering the parts to de-link my brakes and run the lowers from an F4i with some 954 calipers. I'm going to bastardise my existing VFR forks and will be stealing the stanchions and cartridge tubes to ensure the travel and overall length stays the same. I would like to run some braided hoses from the CBR600RR master cylinder I have in a race format (double banjo bolt with a separate line to each caliper) and wondered if anybody knew of an existing kit that would be an appropriate length? I was thinking of something else with a comparable fork length like a ZX-14R. Any ideas? Cheers, Luke
  13. ^what he said. Mine started behaving very erratically and I found it wasn't actually worn out, it had just been pushed on to the flat shaft a little too far and was slipping on the front sprocket bolt head that it drives off. Simply wiggling it down the shaft a little so it engaged with the sprocket bolt properly and normal service was resumed.
  14. One of these makes life a lot easier: https://www.cyclegear.com/accessories/stockton-compact-spanner-wrench
