    VFR800F OEM Quick Shifter video

    Great video - thanks for sharing! How does it work for down-shifting - ok when fully off throttle? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  2. Ducati motorcycle makers have even far more mythical maintenance intervals compared to Honda [emoji16] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  3. Awesome - thanks!!! Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks - of course it's British, you guys get all the good motorcycle mags. Would be awesome if you're willing to scan the article and post it for those of us across the pond...[emoji16] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  5. Interesting, which magazine, and does it indicate which models and years? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  6. Installed a steering damper. Got off eBay $90. Brand is "Savage", made in China. Putting all biases aside, I'm impressed with the quality. Will follow up after a few hundred miles with a review. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Steering issue?

    I love the Q3+, I just put them on my Ducati S4R. Dunlop just came out with the Q4, which is even better. But I'm planning to do a lot more touring with the VFR, so I need the extra miles I'll get between tire changes that the Roadsmart III will offer. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Agreed, Bridgetone makes some good tires, but these aren't one of them. I'll be switching to Dunlop Sportmax Roadsmart III. Great dual compound tires - very soft, grippy compound on the sides for great lean angles, and the center compound gives great mileage. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Steering issue?

    Just checked my front tire - the middle 1" is pretty worn and "flat", and I can definitely feel an abrupt transition to the still rounded portion of the tire. I'm pretty certain this is what is causing my steering issue - thanks everyone for the help. I guess it's time to take the VFR to a track day to get the tire wear evened out [emoji16]. Also, will be replacing them with dual compound tires at the end of the season. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    ...not to mention the tires are brand new last month on the Ducati, so creating even more of a contrast to the VFR's partially squared off tires. This is beginning to make sense. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Steering issue?

    Ah, that is quite possible. Sadly, do not have a lot of curvy roads nearby, so lots of upright riding. And that would help explain why its something I didn't experience in the first couple thousand miles. Thanks! Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    I have not - mine is the base model, so not much to adjust. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Steering issue?

    I've been riding my other bike (Ducati Monster S4R) a lot the past month without riding my VFR. When riding the VFR last weekend, I immediately noticed what felt like the steering wanting to "fall-in" once I started to turn - meaning it wanted to turn the wheel more on it's own without my input. Its more pronounced at lower speeds, but still noticable up to around 50mph. The only other time I experienced this was when the front tire was low on pressure. I checked it, and it's fine - 35 psi. So I figured it's because I've been riding the Ducati which has a very neutral steering feel, and I just forgot how the VFR steering felt. But wondering why I didn't notice this before. I'm wondering if there is an adjustment to the steering stem that came loose. I checked the Owners Manual and found nothing. I guess I should check the steering stem nut for tightness, but not sure that should even matter. Has anyone else noticed this as a normal characteristic of the 8th generation steering? Assuming the answer is yes, I think a steering damper may be a worthwhile investment. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
