  1. Sounds like it would. That’s a big reason why many track riders like the 250/300cc bikes on the track. I’d just be concerned with total amounts of grip with a 170. I tend to ride a little harder than I should on the road and some of that time is with a pillion (I’ve scraped peg with her in the back). Not so sure a 170 would take the weight and speed at those angles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Looking to get a new set of shoes for the bike. Can’t decide on sticking with 180/55s or bumping up to the 180/60s for the rear. The 60s should handle quicker in the corners based on the taller profile but I haven’t seen anyone say anything about going to 60s on a VFR. Has anyone done this and can add their 2¢ to this. Btw pretty sure I’m going with the Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3s. I commute occasionally and have found myself to avoid wet weather when possible. Thanks
  3. Checked it. Ran 13.5-13.7 All clean and no corrosion. Looks like it came from the factory. I’m genuinely stumped by this Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. It’s a 5g that has the issue. I was just stating that I used a battery from my 6g as a test of the battery. You know where the common ground is on the 5g? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks I’ll check it out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Might just be Tapatalk but all those posts say the content is unavailable and that everything was posted on 12/31/1969 lol
  7. Also, it’s not a first post without a picture of the bike. Well that’s both, and they’re both in pieces there, but it’s a picture nonetheless. Don’t mind that jack wagon in the back
  8. I’ve been working to get my brother’s 99 up to par since we purchased it a few months ago. When the bike idles, the headlight works relatively well. Once the bike raises above idle, the light dims. Alright, so let’s check the battery. Battery is meh but not bad. Throw it on the charger for a few hours, let it sit a few hours after that and recheck. Battery still isn’t the greatest but it’s not to the point of replacement. Okay, I’ll swap my battery (from a 6th gen) with his and check. Same thing. Maybe my battery is shot too? Reinstall in my bike, twist throttle, light brightens. Okay so not the battery. Check the stator (stock), stator checks out and has ample and equal output across the three wires. Alright. Now I’m scratching my head and clutching at straws. I wire wheel the terminals and connections with my dremel and wire wheel the bolts. Nope, wasn’t a bad connection. I’m lost. Bike runs like a champ, maybe a little toasty, but it’s a vfr. Anyone have any idea?
