  1. Sorenlaf, Is your 6 Gen an ABS version? If not a lot of people have fitted them in the left hand fairing area where it meets the nose cone. I have been wanting to fit one as well but that space is taken up by my Davis Craig electronic fan controller for the cooling system. As you say there is little room near the headers due to heat but also due to the front suspension movement.
  2. Jsteham I would suggest that your battery is either not holding its charge overnight or you have a sacrificial drain. You haven’t mentioned if you have changed the stator but I assume you have conducted the Drill and with a 14.03v charge rate at idle it doesn’t seem as if it is the culprit. The only other area that may be worth looking into is the starter switch and relay. If you are hitting the start button and it only cranks twice and then the dash goes blank and you then try again and it starts with no issues it may be high resistance across the switch/relay or conne
  3. I agree with Grum, your slave cylinder has been put together back to front. You need to disassemble and put the spring in first followed by the piston. Make sure you put the piston into the slave assembly seal first as well. From looking at your video the piston currently is round the wrong way hence having a large gap at the clutch plates. The spring will always try and push the piston out especially as you have removed the hydraulic supply from the clutch master cylinder. I would rebuild the slave cylinder correctly, refit on the bike and then rebuild your clutch pack ensuring the p
  4. MJH sorry for your woes. I don’t think a 50:1 fuel oil mix would cause any of this. Maybe a slightly oily exhaust and maybe fouled plugs. When you say No #04 cylinder intake chamber was full of fuel was it both ports or just one? If both then either both valves were closed when you looked or you have something wrong with your cam shaft assembly. Remove the plugs and turn the engine over to cycle the intake non Vtec valve. If it is just one then the one that’s full of fuel would be the Vtec valve which keeps closed until 6800 rpm. Now there shouldn’t be an
  5. Mine lights fitted fine and even though I have converted the housings to hold 2 x HID projectors I have had no issues. They are slightly lighter than OEM but they have identical mounting points, adjustment points and fit the bike with no gaps. I can take some video of them if you want to see them. As I originally stated in my first response, I can’t confirm if all China made lights would the same.
  6. I would suggest there is something wrong in your clutch pack rebuild as even when built correctly I have never seen that much space between the end plate and friction plate even with a squeezed in clutch lever. Strip the clutch pack again and check your work. Are there any missing plates both friction and solid metal? Are the slots aligned correctly on the spring seats and where the bolt screws in? Is the central release bearing mounted in the end plate seated correctly? Good luck and let us know how you get on.
  7. TT I bought new headlights off eBay from China a few years ago and they have stood up very well as the original ones were in a poor state with chips and scratches. I originally was just going to swap over the lenses to the original lights but when I saw how good they were I used them. I can’t confirm all lights out there on eBay are the same but the ones I purchased were good.
  8. This is a great story. I am really looking forward to the next episode. Thank you for being so descriptive and providing photos to tell the story. Love the Mod t-shirt. I only emigrated to Australia in 2006 and was born and lived in the UK so Mods and Rockers is part of my upbringing. Just born slightly too late to take on the full period to have owned a Lambretta with multiple side mirrors!
  9. Hi Matt Welcome back to riding and congratulations on owning a VFR. The normal place for installing a PC is under the seat. You then have an earthwire that bolts directly to the negative terminal of the battery and then two large multi plugs that break into the loom under neath the right hand side of the fuel tank and below the air filter by the throttle bodies. If you can’t see it under the seat I would be surprised if it was fitted anywhere else due to space. Mine is fitted on the opposite side to where the tool kit is housed under the big rubber band, almost under the passenger
  10. Dutchy, I haven’t heard cloggyland for ages. I served in Germany with the Brit Army for 10 years and loved going into Roermond for shopping as the Germans used to close their shops from 1200 Saturday until Monday morning. Great food and the Dutch seem to have the same sense of humour as the Brits!!😂😂😂
  11. Warnzie, Are your throttle cables adjusted so there is no slack in them? Obviously there needs to be a minor amount to allow full steering without an increase In the revs but there may be too much. If too much then this would give you a dead spot in your throttle twist range where it is not operating the butterflies.
  12. I think the low down bog at low rpm is a quirk of the Big Bang V4. You have to put on some revs, feeding in the clutch, to get her going. I find VFRs need to be in the 3000+ rpm range to be comfortable and not load the engine.
  13. Warnzie, I had this issue plague me for a period. Sometimes it would run sweet and then out of nowhere start dropping revs when you come to a stop, having to keep blipping the throttle. Similar to your situation. I changed coil packs, plugs, completed a Stater sync, fuel filter but it would show up every so often. Just when you think you have solved it, after a couple of weeks of riding, it would come back 😩😩 I then did a complete clean of all electrical connections and also removed the earth block that is located in the wiring loom around the Throttle body by soldering in
  14. Staintunes are great. Luckily they were already on the bike when I purchased it 6 years ago as they make a hell of a dent in your wallet!!! Fantastic quality and sound though. The only issue I have at the moment is a rattle in the exhaust on acceleration. From initial investigation I think the cat may be loose in the collector as I have traced the source to there whilst stationary and blipping the throttle. I have a spare exhaust so I might just go and get that ceramic coated and replace it. Apparently removing the cat doesn’t give any increase in BHP so I have only put in O2 eliminators and d
