  1. No, just happened again today. In 4th gear, moderately heavy on the gas after a freeway transition, jerked me forward into the bars. Unpleasant and does not inspire confidence in the bike. I have not taken it into the dealer yet.
  2. I ended up buying from lings Honda in the UK. They use different part numbers but the cases are available. This is for the 45l in white
  3. I checked the oil and level is right between the lines. The power loss is severe enough to jerk me forward when it happens,
  4. Throttle is being applied, but this does not happen when the throttle is first applied, it happens exactly when the vtec transition occurs, and only when the vtec transition occurs, so I'm fairly certain that it is tied to that system somehow
  5. Last time it happened I had been riding for over 10 minutes, in 5th gear accelerating on the freeway, at the transition, brief loss of power (bike jerks/hesitates for half a second) and then more power as the revs climb.
  6. Thanks everybody, looks like it'll have to go into the shop. Any idea what could cause the hesitation? EDIT: I'll check the oil level tonight to see if that is good, seems like it could cause the issue
  7. Does anybody else experience a brief loss of power when transitioning to VTEC? It does not happen all the time, and does not seem to be related to which gear or what speed, but when going past the VTEC threshold I seem to sometimes have a very brief reduction in power before picking up sharply as the RPMs rise. It is very jarring when it happens, and does not inspire confidence while riding.
  8. Thanks, I did check there and they have it for $440 shipped, that's a bit steep. although the image looks like the black carrier (08L42-MGE-800) Lings got back to me with the alternate number (I think this is the same as 1200 carrier) which is a bit more affordable (about $300, which matches the US price). Total for the whole rear luggage set came in under $800 shipped. I'm also getting the quick shifter which should be fun
  9. Well for anyone looking in the future, Honda UK uses a different rear carrier (its black instead of the tan/bronze? look of the US one) 08L71-MJM-D10 Superseded from 08L42-MGE-800 https://www.honda.co.uk/content/dam/local/uk/brochures/motorcycles/Accessories/VFR800F.pdf
  10. Well I can't find the rear carrier anywhere in the US or UK, I placed an order with partshark, but that was cancelled this morning as not available. I did email Lings and am waiting on a response regarding fitment of the crosstour carrier I also found the carrier on webike, but very expensive, and I'm not sure if they would be able to get it anyways https://japan.webike.net/products/22985794.html Honda released a 2019 VFR in Japan so I would expect that they keep making the accessories. Does anyone know if the motech rear carrier can accept the factory luggage mount?
  11. Also, the picture that CMD has and the one in the Honda accessory catalog are the same. I checked with the dealer I bought the bike from and they're not able to get the rear carrier anymore either.
  12. That part comes up as unavailable, which is weird if Honda is still showing it in the 2019 catalog https://www.lingshondaparts.com/part-search?partnumber=08L73-MJM-A10 https://www.coxmotorcyclesdirect.com/search?s=08L73-MJM-A10
  13. Hi All, I am looking to purchase the rear carrier and 45l box (looks like the 45l is europe only, and even the rear carrier is no longer available in the US). Is it the same parts for the VFR800FD (US) and the euro VFR800X? Using lings and CMD from the UK I got these parts (labelled VFR800X) Honda VFR800X Crossrunner 45L Top box - NH-B53P Pearl Glare White 08L74-MJN-01ZG SKU: 08L74-MJN-D01ZG Honda VFR800X Crossrunner Rear Carrier 08L70-MJM-D60ZA SKU: 08L70-MJM-D60ZA Genuine Honda Top Box Bracket VFR800X 08L73-MJM-D10 SKU: 08L73-MJM-D10 Genuine Honda 1 Key Components Cylinder Inner Kit 08M70-MJE-D01 SKU: 08M70-MJE-D01 Genuine Honda 1 Key Luggage Cylinder Body Kit 08M71-MJE-D01 SKU: 08M71-MJE-D01
