  1. That looks as if the thread has been ripped out. Eek. Not good 😪

    Fireblade to get vvt.

    Saw this on another forum. https://motoridersuniverse.com/news/1254050-rumors-honda-fireblade-might-feature-v-tec.html So the folks wanting 1000cc and a bit more power may be getting their wish at the sacrifice of touring capability.

    Another one gone

    Sorry to hear of another leaving. Great choice as a replacement tho. Lovely bikes.

    She's gone.

    Just imagine how many vids you could have if you had ever ridden it anywhere. An average of 25 miles per week. Scary. I know I don’t use mine much and have use of another bike for commuting to work, but in the same period of time I’ve added 20,000 miles more than you to mine.

    She's gone.

    I see they have cocked up the advert, showing it as a 1200. That’s not a very high mileage.

    She's gone.

    So what mileage was on it when you sold it?

    RC 79 emblem

    Nice indeed, but need to be bigger the RC79 bit looks like AC TI to me on your pic
  10. Just ignore me I was thinking Cbr F3 and not product no F3. Too many night shifts lol
  11. Have you looked at the pdf you also attached in your post? Read what the label on the box says. Now go to the pdf and look for the bike listed on the label, note part no. Then look down at the vfr listing.
  12. Sorry being a bit thick here. Picture says CRF 345 -SR F3 Sports series yet in brochure it says CRF310 (Honda part no 53178 KV 3000) and fit the following bikes. https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/parts/view/53178KV3000 The bikes in the list ALL have cable clutches However the part no CRF 345 shows totally different bikes on the PDF (Honda Part no 53180 MEJ 016 ) is the OE part and fits the following bikes. https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/parts/view/53180MEJ016. Bikes in this list all have Hydraulic clutches. So maybe not so thick after all. It seems to be an error at the manufacture/printing stage

    Exhaust

    Also great for getting rid of those sunbaked on bugs, tar spots, in fact almost everything. Spray on and leave for 10 mins. Been using it for years.
  14. Try with Oe clutch first to see what happens

    Rear wheel too tight

    Agreed. Best tool for the job is a fingertip. Just make sure the disc isn't too hot. I confess, I did the finger test one day at a Donnington park, Track day chasing big bikes on my F3, came in and looked at the discs thinking they looked a bit blue. I wonder how hot that is? The brain made the calculation in a nano second, but the body said fuck it lets test. Que standing with finger in cold water for 20 mins and a big blister. EEJIT...……………. A hand close to the disc to start will tell. Then a finger wet with spit. Its amazing how many folk can butt Dyno a 2-5 Hp gain, but not a loss from a dragging brake system. 😂
