  1. I’m really keen to see what Tyga come up with. Have seen a few custom left exit 5th gen systems so it’s doable. Some splayed 8th gen style front headers would be great for front mount radiators. Whats the progress report, please? Stray
  2. Is that the “baby blade” body kit? Don’t recall who makes it but have seen some stunning bikes wearing it.
  3. Gorgeous - no other words!

    Wow Seb - that’s AWESOME! Love the exhaust.
  5. This is SUCH a cool project!
  6. Very impressive! I think Mohawk built some sort of air dam to recreate a ram air effect. Trick is to seal the rear of the fuel tank to the airbox, trapping air in the pocket. I’ve been thinking about cutting up the airbox lid and making it bigger than stock so more air space inside. There’s a bit more room for a taller lid under the fuel tank, but it’s a tricky shape. Good thing about your design is you’re no longer going to be sucking super hot air from the oil cooler. You’ll be getting marginally colder air from behind the frame instead. Really cool work!
  7. Thanks for the pics and write up. Really cool roads, landscapes and locations. Your VFR is AWESOME too!
  8. Very, very cool! Why super-short stacks and not dual-stacks a la Mohawk? Does your airbox have a lid or are you running it open?
  9. Wow! New owner says says he’s only going to ride it around the occasional parade lap - very sad. That’s like marrying a nymphomaniac supermodel that’s eager to please and only having gentle sex every Valentine’s Day.
  10. Ha ha, good find! 5.1 gen with condom mirrors - classic!
  11. Very cool project and I like the overall look! Is the chain guard metal or plastic? Where did you get it? Really cleans up the rear. Try running the rear brake line through the hollow swingarm. Will clean up the rear even further. There are a few threads on here telling you how.
  12. I’m personally not a slave to OEM. What’s the point? Top trumps? No, if I were you I’d build the bike I want. The one I dream of. This is your chance to do just that. I can understand keeping original spec on a well-preserved vehicle but this one presents you with a blank slate. Race fairings on AirTech look really cool...
  13. VFRs hate weak batteries, as you’ve already discovered. Have you got a parasitic current draw that is killing your batteries? If it starts every time with a fresh battery then I think that’s your problem. Next time it goes dead try connecting a car battery (need to wait a while for a charge) and have another go.
  14. I really like that - awesome! The tail is where old old and new bikes differ most. Your VFR looks bang up to date now! I’d love to see the faces of folk trying to work out what bike this is at your local cafe!
