  1. For some reason, this has been a point of confusion with most dealers. I asked the same when I bought my base model 2014 (in 2016) because the last remaining model on the floor had the rear seat and grab handles installed. It took him a while, but he did eventually find the rear seat cowl in his stock room. He told me when I picked up the bike that he learned all 2014+ VFRs come standard with the rear cowl (Base and Deluxe). It seems that the problem is with some of the VFRs being left over for 2 or 3 years, they lose track of the uninstalled bits, and would rather tell you they were not included, than to try to find them.

  3. Yes, the engine stop relay (if that's what its called). I was told by the guy I'm riding in WV (behind his white 2015) that not much works if that relay goes south. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  4. ...while you're at it, also test the main relay! Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  5. Seems that most tire manufacturers make a series of cheap tires to compete to win the bid to be an OEM supplier - it's a great contract to get. But I don't think they're usually a good representation of the manufacturer's better tires. I was a Bridgestone guy for years and used them on my track bikes, but the Bidgestones that came as OEMs on my 2014 VFR were terrible - single compound front and dual compound rear. The front squared off after 3500 miles. I replaced them with Dunlop Roadsmart IIIs (dual compound front and rear) and couldn't be happier. Just did 260 miles today on West Virginia twisties - amazing grip. I have Dunlop Q3+ on my Ducati Monster S4R and also an outstanding tire - even for an occasional track day.

  7. Installed a radiator guard on my '14 - was able to do it without removing the fairings (barely). Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  8. ...not to mention, how do you hang-off in a corner without your outside knee firmly gripped on the tank? Remember, you should never use the bars for support to hang-off, just your legs... Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  9. ? Not sure I understand. The inside of my knees/thighs are always against the sides of the tank. I ride with my butt towards the back of the seat and my legs squeezing the tank slightly - this helps take your weight off the bars. I can't imagine hard braking without the side grips - I'd slide forward and slam my nuts on the back of the tank [emoji51] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  10. I have a carbon fiber HRC center tank pad from ebay, and black Stomp Grip (made for 8th gen VFRs) on the sides. Personally, I don't know how anyone rides without some sort of grip pads on the sides. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  11. C'mon you can reveal your speed! Just say it was a story you heard someone tell [emoji16] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  12. Did you need to tighten that bolt in your tire? [emoji16] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  13. From my tour in the Catskills a couple weeks ago. Great roads - perfect for the V4 Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  14. Not exactly today, but two weekends ago did a nice 3 day tour in the Catskill Mountains. Two 2014 VFRs and a Panigale 959. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  15. Sounds like your thermostat isn't opening all the way so you're not getting full coolant flow. That or your water pump isn't working properly. There's no reason it should go that high if your fan is working. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
