  1. Hi Everyone Not today, but last Saturday I had a blast with our beloved VFR at Estoril Circuit πŸ˜ƒ Below link for the videos if you would like to "take a ride with me" 😈 Can't wait to go back with the new headers, and win a bit more time on the straights πŸ˜ƒ
  2. Many Thanks to you both. I ended up removing the metal bracket, screwing the bolt through the chain guard to the metal bracket, and hammer it down as it looks like it was loose, at least now it's staying there πŸ˜ƒ
  3. Well last days we had on the menu πŸ˜… -new oil and filter and K&N air filter maintenance -removed CBS -assembled new Hel braided brake lines as well as stock VFR brake calipers drilled so to have all three pistons working at the same time and now I will deliver her Monday at the mechanic, so to have the used CBR 600 f4 front M/C I have bought rebuilt, as well as brake lines bleed, as I don't mess with that πŸ˜… I can't seem to bolt back the screw highlighted in green, it's like if the screw thread which I believed existed inside the swing arm has vanished... or how does the screw holds to the swing arm so to keep the chain guard in place... many thanks for your help
  4. Hi Squirrelbrains I confess I got used to it nearly instantaneously, and I have no issues at all ridding smooth. Just sharing my experience, which doesn't mean others have to also love it like I do πŸ˜ƒ Please note this is stock Yamaha R6 inner throttle tube, 1/6 turn, stock VFR is 1/9. I guess that could be the case if one buys an aftermarket quick throttle specifically design for track / race only, which are much more aggressive having 1/4 turn, as per example Domino KRR03 on the link below https://www.motorcyclepartsstore.co.uk/product/domino-krr03-krr-03-quick-action-throttle-assy-track-race-bikes/ That and keeping stock look, were the reasons why I went with R6 instead πŸ˜‰ just adding my two cents, as for me this was so far my second favorite mod, being Jamie's DMr Performance front and rear suspensions upgrade the number one πŸ˜ƒ
  5. @TheDutchy Hi There I have also owned a 98 bike which I crashed RIP, and now have a 2k, and couldn't agree more that the 2k just feels more refined. Congrats on the White VFR, she is beautiful 😍 I would like to share with you that I have a nearly similar high mount exhaust set up (apart from you having a Fancy Yoshi RS3 πŸ₯° and I, well, just an $100 Delkevic πŸ˜…), and that I was forced to add a protection on the link pipe, as while fast cornering to the right, the link pipe was melting my shoes πŸ˜… might be just me and the way I place my feet πŸ˜… Again Congrats she is Beautiful πŸ˜ƒ as it was melting my shoes while fast cornering to the right as it is now and I must also share, that while doing a custom map on my PCIII, I had a small problem on my undertray, as it melted a bit =( pics below, not noticeable at all πŸ˜ƒ unless you are under the bike πŸ˜ƒ If I ever manage to buy the TBR replica (almost almost happened last month) or Tyga headers, which will most definitely eventually happen one day, and which means I will have to do another custom map, I will be having an extra fan or throwing water to cool down the undertray so to avoid it from melting again while bike is on the dyno
  6. @Africord Hi Many Thanks for your reply Just got my Hel kit yesterday πŸ˜ƒ I was finally able to buy one πŸ˜ƒ plus all new pads brake fluid etc etc going to replace the Fren Tube, as I fear I might run out of luck, and life, if this happened a third time πŸ˜…
  7. Hi The Limey Please mind below picture, you will notice the part where the cables work was left untouched, meaning the cables only touch the inner throttle tube where you see highlighted in green. It was the bottom side which had to be milled, however throttle cables do not touch there. One will notice immediately the difference, full throttle is now comfortable to the wrist, for as long as one wants to 😈 I hope I was able to clarify 😌 just adding below pic, where one can easily see the size difference on the working side of both inner throttle tubes, the reason why VFR is 1/9 and R6 1/6 πŸ˜ƒ
  8. Hi Everyone I would like to share that it's almost β€œpretty simple" to do the R6 inner throttle tube mod on our VFRs, leaving stock looks but making life for our wrist much easier, I'm loving it!!!!!!! I went to my mechanic fearing damaging throttle cables or not being able to properly adjust the cables, but I guess many can do this themselves. However it's not as simple as on the CBR, as per below link, as milling the actual R6 inner throttle tube is needed to fit our VFR "shell" - I apologize for not knowing the proper name. https://www.1000rr.net/threads/r6-1-6-turn-throttle-tube-install-lots-of-pics.70442/ So here you can see both inner throttle tubes, being the white one the R6 I've started to dremell the VFR "shell", as per CBR forum, however I believe that is actually useless on our VFR, as with stock R6 inner throttle tube it's impossible to bolt the "shell" back again. After trying to figure out why, we've reached conclusion that R6 inner throttle tube would have to be milled, as per below pic. Just put one against each other, and draw VFR "bottom" diameter with a marker Afterwards installing was a breeze=) I must highlight while installing, the whole piece which secures the brake and throttle etc which is on top of the right front suspension was disassembled, so to give more room to work the cables At the end, after everything being bolted back in place, the cable was too stretched therefore throttle not working properly, however after some fine tuning here, it’s PERFECTTTTT πŸ˜ƒ it really is!!!!! 😍😈😍😈
  9. #throwback Today I just stumbled across this picture, back from August 2018 at Estoril Circuit πŸ˜ƒ Still far from the Pilot (me πŸ˜…) being able to take the most of our beloved VFR, we did a 2:07 high as a best lap. Can't wait to be there again 🏍️ 🏍️ 🏍️
  10. Hi Everyone I just realized that this mighty be the correct forum to ask if there will be another group buy, or how can one buy the "TBR" headers for the 5th gen? either from TYGA or I don't know, but I'm now finally in the position to try to buy performance hearders. I currently have the stock 98 catless headers, with a high mounted 450mm delkevic silencer, and I would like to unleash a couple more HP πŸ˜ƒ Thanks for your help
  11. Hi Everyone Will there be another group buy for the "TBR headers"? or can anyone let me know how can I order ones? I currently have stock 98 catless headers, with a high mounted 450mm delkevic silencer with custom corners. Many Thanks for your help πŸ˜ƒ
  12. Hi There Just saw your original post, quote They do not list a tank adapter ring for the 5th gen bikes but since the filler has the same bolt pattern as the 6th gen I just bought that which they do list. 6th gen it's the BF03, Many Many Thanks for sharing this!!!!
  13. Hi Again Can you please confirm which part have you ordered? Was it BF03 (for 6th gen) or BF20 (for 8th gen) Thanks in advance for your help
  14. Hi Many Thanks for sharing, glad to know tanklock system also fits on our 5th gen I'm ordering as we speak Take Care πŸ˜ƒ
