  1. Interesting. I am having the exact same issue at the moment. I replaced a bunch of brake lines with Galfer stainless-steel lines. I have successfully used @jay-d's awesome guide (which you linked to) in the past, but this time I can't seem to resolve the rear brake. When I began, I had to pump the rear brake four times before pressure developed. Then I realized I was working from memory and not actually following the guide process correctly. Now the rear brake will pressurize after one pump, which is progress but of course not satisfactory. I'm not sure where the remaining air is. Maybe between the pedal and the secondary master cylinder on the left front brake? My next step is probably to pressurize from the pedal, then zip-tie a weight to it so that it remains steadfastly engaged in the hopes that pressuring it overnight will float the elusive bubbles that remain. I've had luck with this technique in the past, but have already tried it in this case once or twice with mixed results.
  2. Hmmm... not sure why that came through as from "Guest", but I wouldn't want you to think I wasn't good on my word. Anyway, happy new year to all. May your 2021 be filled with joy and prosperity and open roads. Be a hero be the guy who puts VFRD into the black for the year.
  3. Alright, boys. It's the end of the year and I'm filled with wine and good cheer. Let's put VFRD over the top. I'm good for another $25. Anyone care to join me?

    California Coast

    I get that this was taken in California, but I saw this photo and immediately recognized the Oregon coast vibe (rocky, overcast, and cold looking). Also, I knew it was the Pacific Northwest rather than Maine because the ocean was on the left.

  8. I have a 2005 that I purchased used. I suspect that it probably spent at least a few years garaged and unridden. The notion that old fuel thickens and clogs the perforations or that the old seals fail just makes sense to me, so I'm inclined to pull the injectors and have them serviced. At the same time, I've also read that having the fuel injectors serviced is a form of performance voodoo. To my mind, the strongest argument in favor of the "voodoo" analysis is that inspecting the fuel injectors is not mentioned anywhere in the Honda maintenance schedule. Why would having the injectors inspected and/or serviced be omitted from the maintenance schedule?

    The bike and the road are competing for top billing in this photo. I think I might have to give the nod to the road. It's like some Hollywood fantasy version of a road: swooping bends, immaculate surface, bold white lines left right and center, and everything landscaped in rolling hills of lush grass. Where are the pot-holes, gravel, tar lines, discarded syringes, and crumbling shoulders? I don't think I've ever seen a road like that in my life, except maybe the driveway at some yuppy golf-course or winery. I need to find out where this place is and move there.
