  1. Wow gett'er done. mine has 40k and looks similar haha. I need to clean mine a bit :).
  2. The power of wind is pretty amazing, I would recommend you double reinforce it with a piece of plastic over it connecting to more of the factory cowl. I like the idea though. I need to fix mine.
  3. Rode it again. It's performing quite well now. It's an enjoyable bike to ride. It is crazy smooth. Still rides super hot for what I'd expect. My R1, R6, and Kawi 650 all stay about 170-180°F cruising. VFR sits just south of 200*F. We've been through this before, but new coolant, new coolant hoses, pressure tested, radiators back flowed and clean, new thermostat... and still seems to be "running hot." July is coming, if it's bad enough it'll show its true face.
  4. damn those leak in a ton of places. To be honest, I'm amazed they don't have exhaust gaskets at each connection. What is a good alternative to that header gasket then also?
  5. Normally when I do R6 tachs I just remove it when it's at zero and place it back there. You are drastically overthinking this.
  6. It was windy and rained a lot in the first three hours, but the last 2 were fun. Excited for the next 2 days.
  7. Taking mine on a trip, 5 hours each way and riding in between. Pretty stoked 🙂.
  8. Everything checked out today. It was a pretty great ride. That VTEC transition can be pretty rough sometimes! This week will be finishing up the wiring and then putting it all back together. Thanks for you help everybody.
  9. Lowered the idle today after reassembling and everything checked out. I’ll see how it does tomorrow when I take it on a mini little local trip to Pitt. I do need to find a fuse for the headlight, forgot I left that undone 🙄. So no night riding at the moment. But yeah, Honda mechanic magic made it work for now. Hopeful for the long run with this one.
  10. I put a camera in the cyl, all is well. I’ve considered taking off the header but I feel like it’s just gonna burn my eardrums the first time I pull them out.
  11. I got to ride the R1 and R6, took a day off working on the VFR. Hope to make some more progress tonight.
  12. Nope, Trying to figure it out with my Honda buddy in our free time. The engine has great compression (within 3% of each other) and passes with flying colors on the leak down test.
  13. Sending out the Injectors for cleaning. Hoping for some bad results pre-cleaning.
  14. Wow... If you can share more about the build I would be very excited to hear what exact parts you bought. Part of me is scared to do some BFE touring on my VFR because crashing means no coolant.
