  1. Honda requires the caliper bolts to be replaced every time you take them off. The only visual sign these bolts are different is a little dry thread locker compound on the threads. Well I’ve read the arguments and I’ve never replaced mine. I’ve had my calipers off 30 times already and yesterday I was replacing my bolts after redoing my fork seals and fresh oil. I was using a torque wrench set to 23ft/lbs. first bolt tightened and clicked. Second bolt never clicked but went until it pulled apart. I had reached the useful life cycle of the bolt apparently. I do usually apply a bit of thread lock
  2. Be very careful to reinstall the spacer behind the bottom bolt every time you reinstall the slider. Don’t ask me how I know! 😳
  3. I don’t know if it’ll be a direct replacement fit. I’m going to guess not, but with enough determination you’ll figure out how to overcome the hurdles and make it work with a little modification and ingenuity. Go for it.
  4. I went with the Ebc hh’s. They’re similar to the stock pads. The stock pads are very good in my opinion. I think I actually like the feel of less bite better, easier to control the nuanced way I use the brakes lightly.
  5. 2006’s and up are less problematic. 2014’s (8th)are even better than the 6th generation. I’m led to believe. It’s basically the same motor. For the 6th generation VFR all you have to do is replace the rectifier with a 847A Shindengen rectifier from roadstercycle.com and your good to go.
  6. I tried these, they work quite well. I did however decide not to use the rubber boots with them. They’re aimed well and very much brighter than the halogens. BEAMTECH H4 LED Headlight Bulb, 50W 6500K 8000Lumens Extremely Brigh (9003 Hi/Lo) CSP Chips Conversion Kit
  7. Hello, I bought Jamie’s fork cartridge kit and BD-40 shock for my 2006 Abs. I just installed the shock. Scratching my head over how to mount the remote canister. Anyone have any good ideas and pictures? I found one solution by someone, I guess this is my best bet?

  9. Let’s get this old thread restarted! So Jaime has a new shock he’s touting as his flagship line of shocks. The BD40 line of shocks. Has anyone tried the new shock yet? I’m also confused as to which fork upgrade the Vtec has available from DMR Suspensions. Do you select cartridge forks or damping rod forks? I guess I’ll have to call Jamie to find out. I’ll let you guys know.
