  1. hope I'm as successful. Have no clue who to take it to. Also the headers are on the bike so can't take them with.
  2. I have the opposite problem-I need the pipe from the Two Brothers can I got 2nd hand expanded to fit the outlet of the new headers, as they are the exact same diameter. I'm worried that will split and I know I can't get another one of those...
  3. True-who would pay $120,000+ for a motorcycle that old?
  4. Actually #1. https://www.hotcars.com/valuable-vintage-japanese-sport-bikes/
  5. I remember reading a story about Freddy Spencer riding a '98 VFR just after they were released around Laguna Seca and posting a respectable lap time. I bought one right after reading that story.
  6. I believe my set (never used btw) are somewhere in my shed. Let me look for them.
  7. 20230708_083305.mp4 Sound quality is not great and the sound will depend on pipe used-this is a Vance & Hines Ti pipe. Mine is a '98.
  8. I've always wondered what one of those would be like to ride. Let us know how you like it.
  9. My '98 also pulls smoothly from down low to redline. I wonder if clogged injectors could cause this behavior? Is this condition constant? Never varies? You mention it's worse in warm weather. Air filter new/clean? Also wonder if you adjusted the starter valves properly. I remember one member being surprised that he had adjusted them opposite of what he thought the manual indicated.
  10. So sorry to hear about his demise. Although I never met him I did correspond w/ him a few times here re: the header build/buy and such an easy guy to chat with. I'll think of him next time I open the VFR up and listen to those headers howl.
  11. Let me just say Grum is an invaluable resource here-taking his time and effort to help others troubleshoot their VFR woes. Kudos to Grum.
  12. I mean, who doesn't need to light their ciggies while riding down the road?
  13. Wow-that is a great write-up. Thanks for that. A buddy of ours bought bike when I bought my '98 new and loved it but sold it soon thereafter because he was scared he was going to get hurt or killed. He wasn't accustomed to fast bikes so it was sad for him to sell it. I wish I had to skills to do what you did to yours. Maybe when I retire I can delve into the specifics of some of those tasks you completed.
  14. confused. I guess it depends on the diameter of the slip on pipe. Are you asking about new headers to fit the slip on?
  15. Oops. I do believe I know how to post YT videos or they wouldn't be on YT. However I may have screwed up copying the link to the playlist. Thanks for the helpful comment.
  16. Multiple videos in a playlist. Started out beautiful and ended in a rainstorm. https://studio.youtube.com/playlist/PLLqaMZFKuPcca5Ef-fR0rwLp2BLdprgWL/edit
  17. https://studio.youtube.com/playlist/PLLqaMZFKuPccEEf4EzwKIp0B-UNA4r7z-/edit Beautiful ride around middle Tennessee.
  18. I watched several of the videos he produced-very fine work but he unfortunately dropped the bike he finished in the parking lot photographing it.
  19. Perhaps safer. https://youtu.be/mA_cGfDFuK8
  20. Also I believe the GoPro lens distorts distance quite a bit. I can see farther ahead than it appears on the video. The only things I've had to emergency stop for lately are turkeys and the odd squirrel.
