    What is the device you have mounted between the handlebars?

    Bump Starting

    Hi All, A quick search doesn't show up anything. Bike wouldn't start this morning, I'm assuming a dead battery, crank was weak, and the display would shut off if the starter was pushed. Is is possible to bump start these bikes if the computer comes on (dash lights up)? I think I'll jump it with the car this evening and go from there, but would be nice to know for future reference.
  3. Thats where I hung mine. The denali might be a little fatter than the stebel though, and mine was already a tight fit.

    Yea first for me too. I was going off the service manual which calls for panel removal.

    What kind of Oil/Filter do y'all use?

    Sidenote, has anyone experienced idle changes after an oil change? After my recent oil change my idle jumped to 2000 cold and 2100 when warm. It looks like getting to the idle adjustment requires removal of the lower fairing which is a bit annoying...

    I find this website very useful, our bikes use a type [5] filter https://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/FilterXRef.html I personally run a Bosch 3300 with Amsoil 10w30 in my bike. On my old bike I used to run a Bosch 3323 but I am not sure I could get it to fit on the VFR. Same filter as the 3300 just a little bit bigger.
  8. The lights don't have enough clearance where they are mounted. I am going to put 2 white Feniex T3s there, or something similar if I can find it from China, although so far I haven't seen anything that i like. Edit: I'm liking the look of these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/5-Colors-High-Power-12V-24V-3-LED-Waterproof-Car-Truck-Emergency-Strobe-Flash-Warning-Light/32679778452.html?spm=2114.10010108.0.0.7dc1017efzamwe&traffic_analysisId=recommend_2049_4_83259_iswiall&scm=1007.12908.83259.0&pvid=d9e20b85-bc28-45a1-99aa-444e1a714b90&tpp=1 or these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/DC12V-24V-3-LED-Waterproof-Amber-Red-Blue-White-Green-Embedded-Car-Truck-side-LED-Emergency/32807923644.html?spm=2114.10010108.1000014.38.1453990duMXLaK&traffic_analysisId=recommend_3035_null_null_null&scm=1007.13338.80878.000000000000000&pvid=62d69e85-cb7a-4813-be6a-86822a05f759&tpp=1

    Auxiliary Fender Lights

    Check my other thread where I mounted mine under the headlight. I'm going to have to get rid of them because they dont provide enough clearance to the front fender. I think I am going to put 2 white feniex T3's instead. https://www.amazon.com/Feniex-T3-Perimeter-Mount-White/dp/B00SZL3MDI
  10. Shoot those pictures were supposed to be in the text. I'm on mobile. Ill try to fix it on a desktop soon. All fixed.
  11. Its been a while but I'm finally all done. Well almost, I still need add the sliders and tank pads. Here is the horn. It fit on the right side, I added a bracket to what looks like a coolant sensor right on the frame. The plastics were tight but fit back on. The horn instructions say to mount vertically, this is horizontal but well see how it goes. The lights hang lower than I expected. I am worried about clearance. I'll use a couple of ratchet straps to test it out. Does anyone know max front wheel travel? video of the flashing lights, we'll see if the relay lasts. Half way through the video I switch it from low to high. 20171123_124054.mp4 I mounted the control panel. All the buttons are working and voltage output is good. Usb is working. This has horn on or off, lights flash or no flash and lights low or high. The right side has the harness coming from the rear and the relay for the horn. The left has 2 relays for high or low. I also have the camera and recorder mounted. I put the camera under the mirror and ran the cable into the fairings by the windshield. The recorder is in the tail. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!
  12. I built a small board to hold the switches. The two on the right light up with a red ring. I have pigtails for the plugs but I dont think they will fit in the area behind the headlight so Ill probably solder all this stuff together. I plan on painting the board black to hide the wiring behind it. I made some revisions to my planned wiring. The toggle on the top left will be aux light on and off, the toggle on the bottom left will be stebel horn on off. The switch on the top right will be aux light high/low and the switch on the bottom right will be aux light flashing/not flashing. I plan on using the fairing screws on the back of the piece underneath the headlight to mount the aux lights, this tucks them back and keeps the bikes lines clean. Ill probably have to add one screw into the bottom of that trim piece to hold each of the lights.
  13. Haha next time! I have extra connectors, let me know if you want me to make you one... That is an aliexpress tidy. It is very firm, you can push the plate back and forth but I dont think it will move on its own but there is an allen bolt through the hinge. The light and bracket line up almost perfectly. I put 2 bolts with the little reflectors on them to stay legal (california requires the red rear facing reflector).
  14. Its like this stuff https://www.amazon.com/TapeCase-TC790-Vinyl-100ft-Black/dp/B00823GUP6/ref=pd_sbs_328_1?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00823GUP6&pd_rd_r=08WAFRX056TZ8W9GK430&pd_rd_w=N5Cqc&pd_rd_wg=AkCsf&psc=1&refRID=08WAFRX056TZ8W9GK430 This weekend got a bit more work done, the power module for the dashcam is in. I also pulled off the fender and put a feniex t3 in brakelight mode on. The brakelight mode is only 70% brightness, i might get a separate flashing unit and run it at 100%. The brakelight flashers are cheap. The feniex runs off a short bit of harness that plugs inbetween the stock harness and light. I had the wiring diagram open but still got the brake and tailight wires crossed. Its all good now. Theres a link to the video of the brakelight at the bottom. Brakelight video: 20171021_193324.mp4
  15. Thanks! The wires are wrapped with dry vinyl tape, it doesnt have any adhesive. I use a little bit of electric tape to seal the end of a wrap to keep it from unraveling. Dry vinyl tape sticks to itself when you stretch it. I use split loom to protect the wire from abrasion or heat at key points and cloth tape to protect bodywork and keep noise down. The cloth tape doesnt stick well so I use a zip tie to hold the end of a wrap.
