    What type of riding do you use your VFR for?

    That is a sweet bike I test rode one and loved it. But it’s out of my price range unfortunately.

    What type of riding do you use your VFR for?

    True but they are slow unlike the VFR. I really wish we got a Versys or Vstrom 800 2 or 3 cyl that would be ideal.

    I had a Versys 650 too and you are crazy to say it handles better than a VFR! but glad you are enjoying it. It’s nice to have two bikes in the garage.

    WHAT DID YOU DO TODAY TO YOUR VFR 6TH GEN ?

    I spend a lot of time retrofitting different light types into headlights. LED drop in bulbs still have too much foreground, and not enough distance hot spot or width to be used for night use. Issue with LED is the same with HID in reflector housings. To be best used these need specific housings to do well. Feel free to post some wall shots, but usually LED drop ins actually reduce your night vision 😞.

    Please help me fix my overheating.

    One month later and I’ve given up for now. It’s at the mechanic who really knows bikes until further notice. What a shame.

    Voltage across Flapper valve wiring?

    Yeah, flapper vacuum device definitely works, lol. This is why there is a one way valve in the line haha. For some reason the 12V signal isn’t heading to the flapper solenoid. The reason the flapper exists per my engineer buddy is that low intake air volume is good for low speed while high intake volume is good for high speed. Remember how the R6 got variable length runners around 2008 or so and drastically changed horsepower output? Variable is GOOD! so I want my flapper working so it can operate as close to OEM as possible. Also so it doesn’t run as lean at Low RPM’s, the major issue I’m having. 17CC65F3-5C1D-4D52-9E2C-41CF633F38B7.MOV

    Took it to the dealer. They can figure out MY bikes Problems lol. They have a flat rate diagnostic cost that I’m comfortable with paying.

    Surging at 3,500rpm

    He said he installed a jumper wire for testing. Not sure how this tests anything besides your patience lol.

    Surging at 3,500rpm

    Under the right side cover is a natural colored plug with 3 yellow wires coming out of it. Unplug it there and see if it tests as mentioned, but do understand the bike can’t run forever with the stator unplugged. Nothing is charging the bike.
