  1. Unless I'm mistaken, wouldn't -1/+2 make for a 15/45 gear ratio? Stock is 16/43 (at least on a 6th gen).
  2. https://www.partzilla.com/product/honda/64515-MCW-D00 I believe it's #10 you're looking for.
  3. You sure I can't tempt you? I mean, it melted your little plastic doofer and everything. Five bucks and a packet of Cheetos, that's my final offer.
  4. Yeah, you're probably right; those headers are rubbish. I'll give you five bucks for them.
  5. That's invaluable information, Duc2V4. I guess I'll leave the two hoses on the shelf for now. I should have known something was up when they listed the kit for 2002-2014 VFR800s.
  6. Thanks, Mohawk. I'd previously downloaded the service manual and have been working largely from that very diagram. I've already got the two hoses you mentioned in place, so I know they're not them. I really appreciate the help, though.
  7. I've been putting my bike back together after a winter rebuild, and thought I'd treat the old girl to a set of AS3 silicone hoses. It's been a complete tear-down and so I haven't had the luxury of removing one hose at a time and replacing like for like. I've managed to find homes for all but two of the new hoses. For anybody familiar with the AS3 kit, or the 6th gen cooling system in general; could you please help me identify the remaining two? It looks like the shorter of the two is a good match for the return line from the FPR to the petrol tank, but something doesn't seem right about using silicone for a fuel hose and I'm sure it's just coincidence the length and bends are near identical.
  8. Aiming for the chest? You'd shoot a man for trying to steal your bike?
  9. Hi TheLimey, Thank you for your donation of --. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. It's the same frame. I don't see why it wouldn't just bolt straight in.
  14. Citric acid is easily obtainable from any supermarket and will do wonders for a rusty steel part left overnight to soak in it.
  15. 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.
