  1. Which ones are LifePo4? Ciao, JZH
  2. FWIW, Honda's OEM lithium batteries are explicitly identified as "Lithium Ion", according to the press release I linked to above. Ciao, JZH
  3. I've waited until the OEMs adopted the technology, and Honda now has at least three models with Li-Ion batteries as standard. Their OEM supplier is ELIIY Power, a Japanese company I'd never heard of, and their largest OEM battery is the HY110: https://www.eliiypower.co.jp/english/vc-files/pdf/pdf_eng/20180308_Release.pdf So that means the technology is probably good enough for me, but they're still quite pricey... Ciao, JZH
  4. At least we know it will work with the PAIR valves! Ciao, JZH
  5. Well, it's an RC30 rear hugger from Durbahn in Germany, so only an option if you've got an RC30 swing arm--or an RC30! Ciao, JZH
  6. Yes, they're from the 900RR. The VFR's more protruding versions are commonly called "Frankenbolts" around here... Ciao, JZH
  7. I feel your pain! I wanted a little bit of control over the appearance of the rear sprocket on my Yellow Peril (5th gen), and I ended up getting a very simple, very expensive (and very late) custom sprocket from Sidewinder Sprockets... Based on internet reports, I got lucky/unlucky to have actually received a sprocket from Sidewinder Sprockets (Krause Racing). I doubt it is made from any kind of titanium alloy as was claimed. At least it looks good! You can buy sprocket "blanks", and get a friendly machinist to machine holes in it. I did this for my RC36's custom rear sprocket, but you'd have to find someone local to you (my guy doesn't even have an email address--I had to call him!) However, he talked me into giving him the blank and selling me a laser cut stainless steel sprocket he had sourced from somewhere else: OEM is probably your best bet if you can't buy in person. Good luck. Ciao, JZH
  8. That is the OEM reg/rec, and yes, it it worth changing now--even if it is functioning properly. Honda now sells an upgraded version, but you can replace it with other options, such as a MOSFET or a series reg/rec. Ciao, JZH
  9. Well done everybody. Nearly there, as I write. Ciao, JZH
  10. A left-exit 5th/8th gen exhaust system would certainly be unique. It's probably the best way to show off the SSSA--but I'm not sure there's enough room for the link pipe to pass under the beefy swing arm. I believe HRC had to deform the link pipe and bevel the swing arm on the RC30 to get enough clearance. Ciao, JZH
  11. Hi JZH, Thank you for your donation of 50.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  12. It's not plug'n play, no. The Triumph harness gives you the correct Furukawa connectors to plug into the MOSFET reg/rec, but you will still need to cut off the plugs on other end of the Triumph harness and splice those wires into your existing wiring on the bike. Be sure to make good connections, so if you crimp, also solder and use adhesive-lined heatshrink tubing to environmentally seal the splices. That can be a bit challenging if you're not familiar with modifying automotive wiring or don't have the proper tools. Ciao, JZH
  13. That is not true. Someone just didn't want to help. Legal proceedings/crime are exceptions to both the UK's Data Protection Act 2018 as well as to the GDPR. Given that HareBrain has a third party witness to the theft, there is no rational need to "prove" that the key was not left in the bike by producing both original keys (nor does it preclude the possibility that a copy was left in the ignition!); if the insurer refused/reduced coverage on that basis they would risk being penalised/slapped down by the Insurance regulator. Ciao, JZH
