  1. Patience is truly a virtue! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks Rusty. I messaged V & H but haven't heard back.
  3. I hit an enormous series of potholes a couple days ago and noticed my exhaust sounded louder so pulled over and noticed the bracket securing the Vance & Hines ti pipe had broken off, resulting in the pipe hanging down and swinging out to the side- thankfully it didn't fall off but now I need to know if this bracket can be welded. Pretty sure I won't be able to find a new bracket. There appear to be some small rivets that were used to hold it together.

  5. Yes, I was surprised by the 5th gen omission as well. Wish I'd never sold my RC51... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. Guess how many VFR's made the cut. https://www.motorcyclistonline.com/story/news/top-10-classic-honda-motorcycles/
  7. Welcome! I too have a very screwed up low back- riding actually decreases my pain. I gave up my centerstand when I installed new headers but remember how difficult it was to get the bike on the stand. Now i have a Pitbull rear stand but it is actually more difficult to use than the centerstand. I agree with the above- wear sturdy soled shoes, have a helper, level concrete and I pulled on the handlebars which worked for me. Good luck! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. Where did you buy your Digisync? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks. I did a redneck install and used the one hole that lined up. Hasn't fallen off....yet. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. Do you make one for the 5th gen? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. Thank you- that sounds doable! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. Good to know- thanks! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. I have a battery tender that has settings for normal and AGM but have no idea what type of battery is in there. Does it matter what setting the tender is on? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. Agree- those polished wheels look great. And what a wonderful road that must be to ride at speed! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. You won't be disappointed. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  16. I didn't realize AGM batteries existed. If choosing between an AGM and lithium for the 5th gen what would you guys choose? Based on price vs longevity. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  17. Beautiful bike! Welcome! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  18. Damn that's a pretty paint scheme Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  19. How difficult is it to adjust the starter valves? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  20. Thanks. I use the same caps as well. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  21. Speaking of angled valve stems, are there any drawbacks to having those on the back wheel?
  22. I had the same problem several years ago. The top of the cover was hitting the caliper every rotation and the air pressure slowly dropped until I figured it out. I think next time I get tires on gonna ask for angle valve stems. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  23. I've tried several brands but mostly halogens. That said, the brightest bulbs tend to not last very long-don't know if it's the higher heat generated in the headlight housing or if the electrical system doesn't mesh well with them. I bought a very expensive pair of Sylvania bulbs and they lasted maybe 1 month. I'd go rather pedestrian Sylvania halogens-they seem to have a brighter output and moderate lifespan.
  24. You're making me want an 8th gen now. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  25. Btw there is a separate thread discussing PC III vs PCV and a patch that has been released to allow the map to work on a PCV. As I understand it the map was developed for the 5th gen on a PCIII. The problem is they are nonexistent now so I believe people have been forced to use the PCV and try the patch. Of course I could be wrong about all that....
