    HELLO FROM SOUTHRN CALIFORNIA

    On the highway my riot pipe is just barely audible to me over wind. It's a lot more outstanding than you think it is. What it does make is for very easy speed sense and control. The on-off button that is the low end of the throttle is especially so if you roll on, then back off, and let the engine brake to your new throttle position, you will literally feel the bike die all the way down to the rpm, then go "uhh, shit ok!" and jerk you forward even though your throttle position hasn't changed at all. can be unnerving in bends and corners most of all. the Evo, and the Racing modules both actively tune on the O2 sensors in the header of the VFR. I haven't had a throttle surge or anything but buttery awesome confidence in throttle position ever since. If you think it's smooth now, with an Evo it'll be throttle by telepathy almost.

    HELLO FROM SOUTHRN CALIFORNIA

    I highly recommend a louder exhaust, the quick shifter, and rapid bike evo. then go looking for a used OEM centerstand, and heated grips setup. Can't tell you how many cold rides have been A-OK because I switch the grips on, and get in a half-tuck on the highway. And I can tell you exactly how useful a center stand is. the oil drains better. it's sturdy when you ahve to muscle the oil filter out of the fairing brackets ect, and you can remove the rear wheel with bike on the center, and take it and a new tire to ANY car tire fitter to get it mounted and balanced. it's 4x100 after all. If you plan to work on your bike at all, it's an outstanding bit to have. up on the center, then a pitbull for the frontend, and it's ready for whatever. (hah, 5x100 now. still used to my 6th)

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    Update: I poked them with a stick like I said I would, And BW has indicated their racebred header for the VFR will be a next year release now. 🙁 far cry from "Just a few months now!" back in july.
  4. on the other hand, now I'm looking up 17x5.5 wheels, there have been some 12 lb forged pieces, and I'm like 😏
  5. While I don't have issues with stocker bars I'd say heli bars are your best bet here. They're adjustable in a few different ways and I can bet you'll find something suitable when using them. On another note this guy has had 129 bikes and his vfr12 has what I think is a Delk pipe on it. 🙂

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/VFR800-VFR-800-02-13-V-TEC-RC46-SILENCERS-CI23R-CARBON-TITANIUM-END-SILENCERS/152650127825?epid=624854342&hash=item238aa819d1:g:0lUAAOSwIclZhGJp&vxp=mtr So that must be the race inspired can setup for the 6th. Is that globby looking thing of a header the header? Or is that the old stuff? I have no idea.

    Blue 8th gen

    So as it turns out, either it was wrecked and put back to stock, or someone bought it, put a few mods on it and promptly wrecked it.... but that's the blue bike... for sure. https://poctra.com/2014-HONDA-VFR800-F/id-AykhMOfncyHiO8pe/CHARLOTTE-NC <snip> now that I'm looking at it. that's not the same bike.. and it's a much nicer bike. and it breaks my heart. 😞 a moment of silence for a sebspeed clutch cover at a wrecking yard, everyone.

    Braided Stainless Lines for 8th Gen?

    I picked up a set and they wouldn't seal. they're going back.

    Front rotor damaged

    Ebay has some gently sets of disks off an 8th gen for around 200 bucks if you can't get them straight enough to not be risky to run. "vfr 800 2014 front rotors" cycle reapers put theirs on sale.

    Delkevic catless headers

    stay tuned to the 5 gen header thread, and keep your eye on Black Widow Exhaust on facebook as they're going to be the first points of discovery as to when the (good) header is coming out!

    Delkevic catless headers

    You will have a near-zero chance of making those headers fit your bike cheaply or effectively. They are designed for a front radiator and that being so, the front two primaries are going to smash the radiator hose between the two side rads on a 6th gen. it won't work without modification on your part and in reality it might not work at all. What's worse than that is this is a horrible header design that is soon to be superceded and outdone in every way by black widow's header. at probably about the same sort of price. As a responsible go-fast parts buyer I can't stress enough that you should try to get your money back from Delkevic for the header, even if you take a restock fee hit and wait a month or two on the 5-th/6-th header that is coming out.

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    fantacizing is exactly what a good third of the forums has been accusing us of when we wanted a legitimate race header for our bikes. "just buy a faster bike" Never say never.

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    we'll certainly see, won't we. my poking and prodding and emails I think might have finally paid off. ...it only took 5 years. 😐

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2141146822830310&amp;id=1574792279465770&amp;comment_id=2141602119451447&amp;notif_t=feed_comment&amp;notif_id=1530396895659930&amp;ref=m_notif So! In case you can't get that to open: "Good Morning Black Widow Exhausts, I was advised a number of months ago to inquire about a race-spec VFR exhaust? I've been deployed to the middle of the pacific and this is the first I have been able to inquire about this. Any progress to report on this? inquiring VFR owners want to know!" "Hi Michael, the VFR 98-01 header race specification header is nearly past our R&D stages of development. A few minor changes, and the last test set will be bent and laid next week. Some more testing and we will hopefully get our anticipated results we are expecting. If approved in the next 2-3 weeks we will have headers to market in 2-3 months time. We apologise for the wait, but these will be the best VFR headers ever made." Here. We. Go. I like being persistant. I really do.😎

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    So I touched base with BlackWidow on their FB page to see where they're at with production of the 5th/6th race header. Waiting on an answer, but scrolling back a month or so I have seen a LOT of race quality stuff coming out. K7 GSXR, ZX6R 2010, SV650, ZRX11/12, others as well.on the way. It seems like a real possibility that the VFR header is at least developing along with the steady new releases coming out. I'm keeping my fingers crossed boys. Not sure if this is their bike or whose this is, but it was Also featured on their webpage. Could be their test and jig mule for the header though. time will tell considering I'm pretty sure from the tone of the steel, it's a 6th gen header on that 5er.
