    VFR SF 7

    Love it! Hope she sounds as good as she looks.
  3. Kickstarter price was $999 for a first run unit.
  4. http://www.tested.com/tech/3d-printing/458406-meet-othermill-desktop-cnc-milling-machine/ Interesting stuff - not for huge parts but for things like block off plates it would be great.
  5. Nice work fellas. So did the info we shared via PM help with picking a direction or was I just coming across as the crazy Aussie?
  6. Good to know my videos are still out there helping folks even though I've moved onto BMWs... Anyway, the engine braking was one of my FAVOURITE things about my VFR. I used to love slamming it down a gear from high revs and just letting the bike slow me down while roaring its head off. *Especially* in traffic! The sound of a VFR with aftermarket pipes on the overrun is something I will miss forever. Even after ten years, my 2002 VFR800 still turned heads with its fat baby-eight exhaust note. If only the fuel injection wasn't so wonky... Also worth pointing out that I believe Ducati controls engine braking in the new Panigale motor by keeping the valves open on the overrun (I think it was exhaust valves). Doesn't help with the VFR of course, but people have solutions to the problem out there.
  7. No wax huh? Well whaddya know. They must just call it that for historical purposes.
  8. Man when was the last time anyone saw a VFR with a chewed up crankshaft, eh? A rare thing indeed, and it looks like Honda really did have some machining issues with some early bikes. Glad I didn't buy one of the leftover 2010 VFR1200s - if the 2012 model was here I could have easily bought one of those over the K1300R at the time.

    VFR Offroad1

    Looks like that ECU I sent you is letting the motor dish out plenty of power!
  10. Fully converted into a BMW fan. :-/

    Pair Valve

    Yep that will work fine.
  12. I need to update my status more often!

  13. Hey I have fork tubes. Do you need the lower or upper? Did you also say you needed a starter motor?
  14. Hi mate, I have a BUCKETLOAD of parts you may want. Specifically here, I have all the calipers (2002 model however) and a *complete* caliper rebuild kit - all seals. Note that the 2006+ front calipers are very different to the 2002-2005 calipers. The 2006+ models are much stronger, however they will both bolt to the forks of any 2002 and onwards bike. The front left caliper for an '06+ bike also needs specific '06+ hoses. Is there anything you need because I have two complete bikes in my garage, one completely torn down. I literally have everything.
