  1. I asked the mechanic at the Honda dealer and he said they will not do the reflash. In fact, he seemed insulted that I would ask like I was spitting on a De Vinci painting. I wonder if it is possible to find a mechanic (None-Honda) that would do this kind of work.
  2. I'm not a mechanic. So if I want to this, how can it be accomplished by someone who is all thumbs? Also, it's probably posted here, but I can't find it, how much hp increase is there?
  3. I found the reason Honda limits first gear power: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CB4QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportrider.com%2Fbikes%2F2010-honda-vfr1200f-dct-change-we-can-believe&ei=Ju3LVOjhLIalyQTvlICwBg&usg=AFQjCNE8nwOAdhNGDTvgwz6RPKJsH-LZ0g&sig2=MAiGJSI-QnA8c1Gol1j25Q "The differences between the standard transmission and the DCT model are even more pronounced when pushing the limits of what the bike is meant for. Because the "dual" in dual clutch transmission is really two halves of a single clutch (which is explained further in the accompanying sidebar), their overall strength is reduced. In order to quell the 142 horsepower and 81.4 ft-lb of torque during hard launches, the ECU will pull back power so as to not destroy the clutch. Full power is then restored once road and engine speed are deemed to be at a level the clutch can handle." So it sounds like a bad idea to remove this restriction.
  4. I expect to be riding rain or shine, so I do want safe grip in either conditions. I also want a comfortable ride. I still have the original OEM Bridgestones with 3500 miles on them, but they are five years old. I don't know if it would be worth switching out for something else. I keep hearing about the Michelin P3 and P4's. How do they rate on a VFR?
  5. This was something hidden in the pictures. If you look at the middle piece of the bike between the transmission and tank cover, there is a cheesy black cover with a fake wield point. All on a $17,000 bike. What was Honda thinking? I don't know what it looks like underneath. I assume there is an undressed frame. I wonder what can be done. Can this plastic be removed or made to look less cheesy?
