  1. What is the weight difference between this wheel and the original? Also is it 5 direct swap? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  2. Those headers look great on your white VFR. Sure wish I had some of those cool wheels on my '98. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. Moose I want to thank you for this step by step instruction- my nephew and I installed mine and it wasn't a lot of fun but without your instructions it would have been a disaster. They look good and I believe it bumped the hp and torque above around 5k rpm. Plus they're not covered in rust like my original ones. Again, thank you! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  4. I installed the new headers and I just want to thank the two fine gentlemen who generously donated their valuable time and not insignificant effort to get these headers fabricated, built and shipped. I cannot stress how much better the bike pulls now, especially after around 5k rpm. I hope everyone who ordered the 1st batch of 5G headers chips in to not only help defray the extra costs not anticipated but to reward these 2 guys who did all the hard work. And man these new headers look great! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. Btw I have 3 cooper gaskets left over if anyone wants them. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. One other issue I experienced was the right fairing melting onto one of the pipes due to how far to the right one of the header pipe protrudes. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  7. Not yet- Just got the new headers on this weekend. I'm gonna try that next. Thanks for the advice. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. Thank everyone for all the good advice and troubleshooting tips-I will just learn to live with it and go about my merry way. I'd there any method for deleting posts?
  9. Thanks for your offer but that's a bit far-appx 240 miles.
  10. Finally got around to installing the new headers on my 5th generation yesterday. My nephew helped me and it was still a pain in the ass. Is anyone else experiencing this pipe melting into the fairing? Also, knowing others had trouble aligning the fronts to the bolts my nephew just stretched those apart using brute force- they then lined up fairly well.
  11. Wow-snark central. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. Chain and both sprockets replaced last summer.
  13. I believe my bike did "the shimmy" when new. I noticed today (over 85 to 90 mph) that when looking down the right fork I can see the axle begin to oscillate anterior <> posteriorly-this oscillation appears to be the cause of the vibration. But why is this happening? ? I do wonder how carefully the Honda shop balances the tires.
  14. How difficult is the bearing replacement? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  15. Not sure if the local Honda shop has ever done that. They have done all the maintenance on the bike and I bought it new. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
