  1. Hi Thumbs, Thank you for your donation of 25.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  2. All the petrol now contains 5-10% ethanol, you can get phase separation and water will precipitate at the bottom of the tank, there are numerous products that stabilise the fuel, so that’s a solution Probably no problem in a car but then the fuel tank isn’t a feature of the vehicle My ‘89 FK had E10 fuel in when I picked it up, the rusty crap that came out convinced me to never use ethanol again Esso Synergy 99 despite the E5 sticker on the pump actually contains zero ethanol, so if you can get it use that Since I’ve been using Synergy 99 in my 8th gen the bike feels smoother and starts quicker …or it appears so
  3. My neighbours new BMW hybrid car has developed a battery problem, it’s under warranty so he’s getting the battery replaced at no cost to him, just as well it’s £18,000 or $22,000 plus fitting cost
  4. For half the price you can get your seat reupholstered to your own requirements @ http://www.sussexmotorcycles.com/elite-comfort-motorcycle-seats.html I had my 2015 seat reshaped and memory foam inserts, transformed the ride Shipping shouldn’t be excessive from the Netherlands Even better there’s one on eBay that you could get sent directly to Sussex Motorcycles https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/115113161487?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item1acd47730f:g:Ll4AAOSwsgFhoL-7&amdata=enc%3AAQAGAAACkPYe5NmHp%2B2JMhMi7yxGiTJkPrKr5t53CooMSQt2orsSR84A%2FGMxXIqJzFmDq6lDLiFNVbxwpuU0l%2Ft%2Fes1ci6OjX2P3MtnNCavLBSJYbgpnHW5aV%2F66c4NojZKbSgQTeRrWThsPY8DGVNOvtiGQRqiKYV0GatERbXZJK7xKnu52Gml8eD4wO3M9y0UoJmxN1niRSTe6V7hSHTDREoMd3LXhqjKVJ5CdtCNSrS31SKEKgHRX70ykgpm192fdRWSIjscD9xXspujSc4zONAnCP%2Br9UtsWe52UEn49sCZhOFvIwy8iYSXBUea7UM7RXSm34CIH6%2F9nB8cyFdBctxkn4gwkmD8yOU9foBO6DgwX90dj%2BK7ZX7IUzTrEQ89Fs3cTuXXFb0UqUG0x4lZtdtJTX6KgKm4asy1soOk2fd1AhxMTm6rnGj9vd66A%2BcgIuv4wmfAGd%2BT8BhLmHhvSZStRw%2FJazCwU6sdkw25S5W1%2BSyylKcvEh8QJiGkawGOKFVYh6%2B97VsBQ7ZDXORdgUCDLahLWO5J%2FICixHmE4SwHDCjItF4jrclWHPM11krk2pnpapeDX8dtOkI67x%2BrxnSSOawZ98hoIJmj%2FTjZhGbsG%2FZ1PXuXTRIcdhG%2FmU2mziXfEgE6kHQSoCDb%2B6PWGdSwEk%2BeO8KFUhAF8%2Btnugq9ew1Xqt8DUKF9lB12OIv1awP6FNKiIiVYQ%2BvtBop7VKLd5WMxMCTLqJzSMm1NuBUU%2FKssg1pUqEtMKlQPqu1iOnXi%2FYF3fmCA7HabX8ReQVKf9p6zvgCcCf0Rbsxd0%2Bfant%2Bklqee4qPUHFY%2Bg9lsfcDISF9WS0CIOvixkmAzdtYD3ebZIVUtQLAeFgumkSjxfVLhz|clp%3A2334524|tkp%3ABFBMyIi8wrhf
  5. As a test I’d just put a piece of cable between the headlight earth and the frame
  6. Have you tried a separate earth wire to the chassis earth? That seems to be the only difference in the circuits
  7. Good ….he’s a whiny fucker like Redding….
  8. Glad to help …. I assume that’s brissle near the M4/5 …. I’m just outside Wotton
  9. Well it’s listed here as available https://www.diyspareparts.com/parts/honda/cover-lunh220r-64596-mbg-000zb/ Ive bought a few parts off them that are listed elsewhere as NLA, each time they’ve come through with genuine Honda parts, there’s usually a 5-6 weeks wait
  10. If you’re happy with the OEM shocks performance then getting it rebuilt should cost about £150-200 …
  11. How about a video across the wheel showing both fork legs as a comparison?
  12. Rather than buy another radiator I’d get that one recored, cost should be under £250 depending on what you need done Either way I’d call this company and see what they say https://www.aaronradiator.co.uk/motorcycle/ …their work is pressure tested and warranted for 12 months
  13. Allen Millyard had a similar problem with heat, his solution is in this V10 Viper motorcycle, it’ll cool the radiate hear down to some extent
  14. I’ve been using 151 Red, it gives a decent gloss too
  15. If you’re considering the Triumph 660 have you looked at the Aprilia 660?
  16. It’s listed as available but not in stock here https://www.diyspareparts.com/parts/honda/washer-conical-sp-90501-mn8-000/ They’ve got a few parts for me that are listed as NLA by everyone else, they’ve been genuine Honda parts too, not a quick delivery though (5-6 weeks)
  17. Airtech have all new fairing parts for your bike https://airtech-streamlining.com/honda-fairings-seats-fenders-parts/VFR7501990-93.htm
  18. Elite comfort seats at Sussex Motorcycles http://www.sussexmotorcycles.com/elite-comfort-motorcycle-seats.html Looks like you live close enough to ride there and they’ll do it while you wait
  19. You have nothing to loose by soaking the whole thing in a Wintergreen solution and see if that refreshes the seals, it did on mine
  20. No, that’s a casting defect As you’re getting quite a few items vapour blasted, it’s a timely matter to check for any cracks, should you choose to do so
  21. As you’re having a lot of stuff vapour blasted you might be interested in having a home test kit, this is a pretty good article https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/articles/testing-cracks-home-diy-dye-penetrants/ For £12.15 delivered https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/302312973984?hash=item466341e6a0:g:hY4AAOSwmxVdlzbl
  22. Autosol.com Exhaust blue remover http://www.autosol.com/Bluing_Remover_p/1290.htm
  23. The exhaust on the 8th gen is stainless steel, Autosol bluing remover is the stuff, it’s dilute phosphoric acid which only acts on the staining, wipe on, wipe off, done
  24. I worked on various Moto Guzzi motorcycles and they’re built like a brick shithouse A simple pushrod V twin with shaft drive I could strip a full dresser down to an engine on a block in just over an hour singlehanded so don’t worry about working on it
  25. I’ve just had a look at AliExpress and these look a good starting point for cannibalising for the price, a simple adapter plate between stock and the new ones £62.87 29% Off | Full CNC Aluminum Motorcycle Adjustable Rearsets Rear Sets Foot Pegs For HONDA CBR600RR NON-ABS 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013-2017 https://star.aliexpress.com/share/share.htm?image=U9ce99e7d1f004d8e8ac3383a58deb84ai.jpg&businessType=ProductDetail&title=£62.87 29% Off | Full CNC Aluminum Motorcycle Adjustable Rearsets Rear Sets Foot Pegs For HONDA CBR600RR NON-ABS 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013-2017&platform=AE&redirectUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.aliexpress.com%2Fitem%2F1005001597972999.html%3F%26srcSns%3Dsns_Copy%26tid%3Dwhite_backgroup_101%26mb%3D42zWXXe5q0KWYoO%26businessType%3DProductDetail%26spreadType%3DsocialShare
