  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. It shouldn’t just snap. Probably just slowly cracked from your drop or crash years ago.
  9. I’ve had very similar issues. It’s all micro issues, but it bothers me. I wish my VFR revved smoothly with throttle application throughout the rev range out of gear. Eh whatever, runs great when in gear. As for the pair snorkel etc... doesn’t make much sense to modify. For some reason my flapper is totally disabled electrically and I can’t figure out why.
  10. Mine did this when the idle was too high. Just a thought.
  11. S21's are amazingly priced right now. They are going to be on my R6 and on the VFR this year. I'm pretty excited to run them!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
