  1. Testimonial from Canyon Chasers (youtube). I forget his name, (I think it's Bryan). He is one of the better Youtube 'coaches'.
  2. Thanks for confirming what I sensed about Nick from his videos and articles. I haven't had the good fortune to train with him. Someday! This course is a start. I have his book, but actually seeing something on a video is always better than a book.
  3. Well worth it for $49.95, considering how much the in person courses cost. I bought this Core Course and will buy Advanced courses if they produce them and keep the pricing reasonable. Then when I win the lottery I will go and take all the Champ Track School courses. LOL! I really like Nick's passion for motorcycles and teaching. Tons of his articles available free at CycleWorld.com, but a video paints a thousand words. The previews look quite professional. https://ridelikeachampion.com/inside-champu-the-debut-of-an-online-riding-school/ https://ridelikeachampion.com/courses-page/ Nick's articles. he has been writing for decades. https://www.cycleworld.com/blogs/ienatsch-tuesday/
  4. Old thread, but since you are a Forum moderator I am hoping to get a reply. What handlebars did you have on this very nice looking VFR? They look wider and higher than Helibars.
  5. This was just listed on kijiji in Alberta, Canada. Just thought that I would post it here in case any collector is interested. It looks genuine in the images but do your own due diligence to make sure that the seller is not a con artist. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1584089546
  6. I am not sure if this has been posted before but I just came across this website dedicated to the VFR (primarily the second-gen 1986-87 VFR 700/750), and set up by a VFR enthusiast by the name of Joe Nelson. I would be surprised if he isn't a member of this forum. Some useful articles, some (possibly hard to find) parts, an interesting Blog, and some history on the VFR Maintenance - v4 Dreams

    OH! WOW! Man, you are talented!
  8. Hi RossR, Thank you for your donation of 15.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  9. Thanks Seb. That's where I should have posted this thread in the first place. I the Moderator or anyone can tell me how to do that it's where it belongs.
  10. I did a forum search for PlastiFix, and your thread does not come up. can you please post a link. Thanks.
  11. I think that you are absolutely right. That's why I made the point of saying that one must make sure that the adhesive and technique match the type of plastic. There was a guy at the last local motorcycle show who was selling a kit for fairing ABS repair, but I have misplaced the literature. When it turns up I will post the details. In the meantime here are links to some advice. https://advrider.com/f/threads/repairing-broken-abs-parts.586425/ https://www.webbikeworld.com/repairing-motorcycle-saddle-bags/
  12. It might be different for each model. You have to look at the the back as Duc2V4 has posted. In his image you see the code PA6 +PPE which is mix of two different plastics. Usually it's just one type. Once you find the code Google it and you will find out the type of plastic. Some fairings are ABS which apparently is easier to work with. PPE is polypropylene which is notoriously difficult to glue or paint. My Givi E-41 cases are PPE.
  13. I came across this article and video and thought that it might be of use to anyone attempting to repair broken tabs on their fairings. Remember to always look at plastic Type code on the inside of the fairing before you buy the appropriate adhesive. https://diy-auto-repair.wonderhowto.com/how-to/fix-broken-plastic-tabs-bumper-0141489/
