    5th Gen vs 6th Gen VFR800

    I adjusted my valves at 40k miles and it absolutely needed it. 2002, 15 years after it was released. VTEC valves were quite low on the adjustment.

    5th Gen vs 6th Gen VFR800

    I like mine for above plus it's cheap to own. If only I can figure out my running issues lol. Also, 6G got ABS. The biggest bonus for the 5g is the gear driven cams. Sounds Fantastic.

    A nice pic I saw of the 07 RWB on the track

    Beautiful RWB collection with a VFR750 Close up.

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

    They also checked my valve clearances and it looks like I did them right. Oh bother...

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

    Wow thats some mileage! I ordered two CCT's for mine today. Honda says that is my running issue - CCT failure.

    I am thinking about pulling a trailer...

    The small egg one would probably work well for you.

    Cold startup quirk?

    Pretty common VFR issue it seems.

    Another successful Year

    Wish I had a good year like you. Only got one good trip in! Protip- don’t do lithium batteries. Just eat a little less over winter. Lithium has its own host of problems and can’t be bump started or brought back from the dead like traditional batteries. Lithium also has this weird warm up time issue where if you press the starter and nothing happens, you have to wait 30 seconds and try again. I use my bikes too far from home so I’ll stick to traditional batteries. Hopefully 2019 works out better than 2018.

    Soft bags and heat shield?

    They get warm, highly recommend a custom bracket so they never touch.

    Rocks don’t Rock

    That’s really unfortunate. Glad you kept it up and had the sense to pull over. This is one of the only negatives to the linked brakes... an emergency tire pop or wheel issue means you don’t want to brake with that tire 🙂.

    VARIABLE9’s V4 VFR VICTORY

    I’ve wanted to attend but it’s just out of my price range. Im saving for an April trip to COTA. F1 looks so neat. I saw Petit LeMans with the different race classes all on track at the same time last year and it’s definitely something I would like to regularly attend. That parking though... smh. It’s 2018 they need to hire a civil that knows the basics about natural parking designs. There are products to keep parking clean on grass, where cars don’t destroy what they drive over.

    Dangit, I need to post up the photos from this guy near me that brought a RWB edition of all kinds of Honda’s to our last track day. He had a whole line up of RWB’s that he used throughout the day.

    Perhaps it’s time to go with heli bars so you can get more space on the bar and move that inward?

    Aftermarket radiator experiences

    Seen a pair on eBay for new for a reasonable price.
