  1. Hi Grum - too much beer last night ... you photographed 2 new sprockets...! Visible wear could easily be lens distortion... And I thought everything get "blasted" with all the sand you have out there... Do you use link or rivet?
  2. Yes, he really did! He says he always forget if the rear wheel sensor is for ABS or speedo... It does not appear as getting the facts right (from the shop manual) is something he is concerned about... I'm surprised he get so much good feedback...
  3. At 9:30 in the morning!!! Your system gotta be covered in stainless steel sheets on the inside πŸ™‚ I'm not sure I consider that a reward this early in the morning
  4. A new and revolutionary concept... you know the asphalt gripping trail-tire for trail braking a sportsbike into corners using the rear... 🀣 It's so new only this dude knows about it...
  5. I'm not sure I would want to ride anything this dude put together... Good one! I left you a like on YouTube for your thoughtfulness πŸ™‚ But you need to pick up the pace if you want to save this guy... my imagination does not leave me with any good feeling for the bigger changes coming up...
  6. Not by choice - by necessity! When the old bike have let you down and left you on the shoulder for a couple of times, you retreat to the study and get wiser πŸ™‚ Shout if you want a couple of links / information about 1) mechanical rectifying, 2) electromechanical voltage regulation / alternatives and 3) "budget constraints" workarounds. Voltage regulator for Gilera Sport (6 volt DC). Very condensed checklist: File / clean contacts INSIDE regulator before first start - check voltage before after engine start (at medium rpm voltage higher than battery voltage tho never higher than 7.2 volts).
  7. Nice! You have a dc dynamo with electromechanical regulation πŸ‘πŸ˜Š On terminal 51 I assume you should have 6,5-7 volts DC (medium rpm and no lights on). I don’t know this system but would not suggest an additional USB charger πŸ˜†. I think power is 30 Watts. Rectification is purely mechanical (no diode or other fancy electronics) - the commutator "turn" direction of current. The regulator must be in the hole to the left - includes electromagnets and its own contact point. These systems can be tough on batteries and bulbs as voltage varying widely. A modern regulator makes a hell of a difference and makes a 6 volt system perform fantastic. Of course you still have ignition contact point and mechanical advancer... πŸ‘Œ
  8. So assume a 6V DC dynamo πŸ™‚ Are you going to use the old electro-mechanical voltage regulator or are you hiding a modern silicon based regulator inside an old housing? I have to admit I cheat - I don't like parking roadside with no more juice on the battery πŸ™‚
  9. Right, you already passed our tallest mountains (about 173 meters) a couple of times in that video. I think it does say Spain in one of the other videos from "FLASH FLASH".
  10. Who would worry about the garage floor with a new VFR on your hands... roads are calling... the dust not going anywhere anyway Welcome and congratulations with the new bike πŸ™‚
  11. I'm definitely getting too old or simply too lazy to replace mirrors and peg wear bolts... Of course, the chance is I'm too much of a chicken as well πŸ™‚
  12. πŸ™‚ an unintended interpretation... the bike back then did not make it 😞
  13. I gotta say your MBD is certifiable as a severe case πŸ™‚
  14. Thanks for the warning - very appropriate πŸ™‚ Blasfemi... that's what it is... A slight honing and the cylinder is as good as new πŸ™‚
  15. Yeah - guess the "aha experience" is if you want to fly, use an aircraft... far more graceful πŸ™‚ You can have your accident for your selves - I don't want it πŸ™‚
  16. For a February 2nd, really nice weather today - blue sky and 5C... only the wind is a little annoying. This day 18 years ago the weather was pretty much the same. I remember because I ate some dirt that day. I have no memory - witnesses told the bike landed on my chest after what in pilot jargon is best described as "uncontrolled flight into terrain" - I think I was lucky. Even though the bike is work-in-progress it went back together last night. I went for a ride and of course... needed to pass my old crash site. Not often that is a joy in February...
  17. Spring is coming soon... Brakes had major overhaul last year - all new o-rings, seals and braided brake-lines. So this year is the "light edition". I removed the calipers and cleaned pistons (only external part of piston). With floating calipers, I clean and re-grease slides every year; it takes very little time and I never have uneven wear, noisy brakes or warped discs.
  18. Lucky you. In Denmark no exceptions! Btw, I was in Kuressaare some years ago. Sailed into Roomassaare. The harbour was maybe not the greatest (only outer industry part of the harbour had sufficient depth of water) but we had a great time.
  19. Nice πŸ™‚ ... Well, except for the price... 😯 and the work required too... 😫 Ex work: EUR 2,30 per liter or USD 9.74 per USG
  20. Lucky bastard! In Denmark they raised ethanol content to 10% effective this January 1st. E0 not allowed in the market 😞
  21. Only thing missing to make this a good shot is proper motorcycle attire...

    My VFR 750F T (1996)

    The old girl - my 1996 VFR 750F. Also known as a 4th generation or RC36/2 Over time brought back to pretty much plain stock. That includes small things like replacing all non OEM fasteners and any other non OEM items I have come across (which was many). I did however install non OEM rotors, all braided hoses and wiring from a UK VFR 750 to get dual head light. I got an extra dash in which I have installed a voltmeter. Heating gribs is a must around here, so is USB power and a turn signal comfort relay. I have preserved the OEM parts - should I some day regret better brakes, I can swap parts back to original πŸ™‚

    From the album: My VFR 750F T (1996)

    Jægerspris Casle has belonged to the Danish monarchs for most of its history which dates back to the 13th century. In the 1850s it became a retreat for King Frederik VII and his morganatic wife Countess Danner. After the king's death, Countess Danner turned it into an asylum for women.
