  1. IShark yeah dachshunds are quite the character. Personality and loving little family wolf pack members. Pic is not my little guy but it's a good laugh.
  2. Thanks RhINO. Down by my water pump there is a bleeder hole to bleed air out. I took the bike for a 45 minute ride today and when I came back let the bike cool down my filler neck and reserve were fine. I remember when I drained the old fluid out the level it showed on a gallon jug. I'm going to take a empty quart and fill it with 3 quarts and compare the levels and see if it matches up. Yeah good you changed your t- stat it's important. Ride safe.
  3. Oh yeah. A little prairie dog. Yeah pet or family member. My little mini dachshund is a son to me.
  4. Whoa crazy looking build up. From looking at the service records the last owner never flushed coolant since 2013 so I did a proper cleaning and flush. Was actually pretty clean just green coolant was a bit dark. Yeah I flushed about 3 times. One time with 50/50 mixture of distilled water and distilled white vinegar. Then 2 other times with distilled water. Filled up the radiator and reserve tank with about 3 quarts and 0.42 ounces for reserve tank from a 4th quart. I'm going to give the bike a good run let it cool and check one more time. If the coolant is topped off then should be good to go. Hey what is your little pet called again? Type of animal?
  5. Hey all. I recently just flushed my coolant system for the first time and I noticed when I was filling back up the bike only took 3 quarts and a little from.a 4th quart for the reserve tank. From the service manual it says about a 4.16 quarts and some for the reserve 0.42. See photo for FD bike. I ran the bike till the fans kicked on and let coolant circulate through bike. Do i need to run the bike for a certain amount of times or minutes? I wanted to know if I'm missing something? The filler neck and reserve tank are topped off properly. Does some coolant stay behind when doing a flush? It says radiator and engine in picture so maybe some stays behind. I upgraded to the newer Honda blue pro coolant and want to make sure my bike is topped off with enough coolant.
  6. My bike came with a Corbin seat with passenger back rest. Really friggin comfy for me and passenger. Rear backrest donut is removable via Allen key screw from underneath If you want it to look more sporty hardcore as to wife on back donut hole look! Lol. Wife doesn't ride with me much so I have it off but can always slap that baby on when needed 😁

    2006 is awesome looking and performing I bet. Those duel exhausts are killer!
  8. A collage of my old 2010 vfr I had to sell in 2013. Now have a 2012 and enjoying it to the fullest.
  9. Thanks. I love my bike dearly. Therapeutic riding is believe me. I got the windscreen off of eBay. Here is the screen shots. Type in Honda vfr 1200f windscreen. I chose the smoke. They have clear and dark limo black also. As for the Corbin seat it came with the bike when I purchased. I believe you can go on Corbins website and order one. It's a separate seat from the oem one. They don't need you to send them the oem seat. I have the Corbin and the oem seat. Really comfy I must say. A seller has one on eBay but it does not have the back rest for passenger. Check it out.

  11. My Honda Vfr 1200FD ready for a ride.
  12. Installed my center stand today also with a GPR exhaust. The hardest part to me was working on the ground with no lift and installing the springs. With some muscle and strength I managed. Cotter pin was no problem. I used a long angled tip needle nose and bent it properly. Then fully flattened with a thin flat head screw driver. I was sweating my rump off in the Florida heat burning calories but under the shade. Anyways great oem center stand. Will be able to do maintenance easier now. The exhaust is a growler but not overly loud and looks amazing. I did not install the top and inner baffles and sounds just right. Light as as a feather in weight as well from the clunky heavy oem exhaust. GPR's quality and craftsmanship is awesome. Attention to detail was great. My exhaust came with a tag with the build birth date and my name on it. A certificate of authenticity. They take much pride and dedicated work in their exhausts and i highly recommend them. After I clean up my bike I will post some photos later. Thank you HispanicSlammer for making this photo instructional. Ride safe y'all.
