  1. Anyone know what color code and name of this orange?
  2. Hi zupatun, Thank you for your donation of 15.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  3. Excellent...I think it goes to figure that the aluminum carriers are easily tweaked...putting the steel rotor out of true...not necessarily an easy fix...but easier on the wallet to fix.
  4. Looks like you'd need to do a de-link to the 2000, and use the CBR wheel as well (whole front end). Wondering what the Gemoetry looks like compared to 5th Gen Stock? https://www.motorera.com/honda/h0800/intercep.htm CHASSIS / SUSPENSION / BRAKES Suspension: Front: 41mm HMAS cartridge fork with stepless spring preload adjustability; 4.7 inches travel Rear: Pro-Arm single-sided swingarm with Pro-Link-mounted, HMAS gas-charged shock with 7-position spring preload and stepless rebound damping adjustability; 4.7 inches travel Brakes: Front: Dual 296mm disc with LBS three-piston calipers Rear: 256mm disc with LBS three-piston caliper Tires: Front: 120/70ZR-17 radial Rear: 180/55ZR-I7 radial DIMENSION Wheelbase: 56.7 inches Rake: (Caster Angle) 25.3' Trail: 95.0 mm (3.74 inches) Rake: (Caster Angle) 25.3' Trail: 95.0 mm (3.74 inches)
  5. My 2000 has 97K miles...I'm 245lbs, ride with full bags and get 40-42mpg in touring mode.. On gas in the twisties 32-36mpg.
  6. 1% HF and 12% HNO3 by weight could be painted on the welds...dipping the whole thing may not be necessary...

  8. I fitted a chain oiler almost excactly like this dude, but I bought a cheap Chinese brake fluid resevoir for $14 (made very well IMO), some fuel line, a primer bulb for a two-stroke chain saw and it now oils my chain from the underside poking through my chain slider 8-10" before it hits the countershaft sproket instead of the rear sproket. Less fling and simple as pie. This video explains it. The bulb sits near my right thumb...NOT MY VIDEO...

    Zupatun's new ride: Yamaha XSR700 in Raspberry Red--my SV650 replacement
  10. Hi zupatun, Thank you for your donation of 25.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  11. When I bought my current VFR the PO decided to slap on a chain from China just to see how it performed....let's say, not well. Only a few thousand miles on it and when I bought it...it went from OK to slack to the eccentric run ALL the way out and wheel base maxed out. That was about 1500 miles after I bought it. I had to drop by a Kawi dealer in mid ride and have them install a factory Kawi chain because on uphill portions of the ride the chain would slip over hthe front sproket...I thought it was the altitude and the carbs were leaning out...then I remembered this bike DOESN"T HAVE CARBS! so I put two and two together and WOW chain on the deck... Matt
  12. The first 10,000 miles on the Ohlins are very nice...but you KNOW when it needs a re-build. Matt
  13. I cannot help. However, please change your title to something like: "FI system malfunction/Fueling problems--HELP!" this way the problem is specific in your subject title...you should get more help that way! Matt
  14. You can buy a VFR clutch cover, or ship yours (but you will have downtime) if he doesn't have one in stock. Regardless you have to ultimately provide the cover. He made one for me and shipped today and I'll swap mine (2000) and ship mine back to him shortly after it gets here. Matt
