    Rear LED light cluster for 6th Gen

    @BuzznerSuntrusts my dad followed me once and mentioned how he liked when the rear lit up extra bright... I had a bulb out of course. Only the highs worked.

    Holy hotness that LED set up is bright af! Please provide more detail on how you opened the rear taillight as I’ve looked into swapping some LED boards intothere becuse of all the lost bulbs I’ve also had. Im so impressed... love it!

    eliminating VTEC on 6th Gen

    Seems it would suck a whole bunch extra fuel, but it would make that RPM transition way smoother.

    Battery: YTZ14s vs YTZ12s?

    More weight, but when you add a pound to a Buffalo you still have a 5000 pound buffalo 🙂.

    VFR Aftermarket mirrors

    Exactly ^. They require a special bracket to make anything modern fit. Old style stuck out mounts sideways. Modern is almost vertical.

    eliminating VTEC on 6th Gen

    Interested to see how this works for owners, but as a street bike why would you give up the best of both worlds situation?

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

    Well, no. I’ll be back on this topic when it’s fixed. Fml.

    Going to pick it up tomorrow. Boy I am excited.

    VFR Aftermarket mirrors

    I may modify a set of mirrors over winter from a More modern bike. I like foldable mirrors for trackday reasons or lane splitting reasons.

    I also have issues with the bulbs falling out. It’s a bulb base issue. If your bulb had a plastic base I would safety wire it to ensure it doesn’t work it’s way loose. LED boards are way to expensive for what you are trying to do. 5th gen =\= in size at all.

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

    Yes, his name is John 😁. He has an SP2 1000 RWB now too.

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

    Yep, but verified by the Honda Tech it was done right. Call me stupid but if he says jump I’ll say how high. It’s out of my hands now I’m tired of working on this bike. Most I’ll do when I get it back is repaint.

    Engine running out of time, and therefore running lean apparently. About a week out on delivery we will see!

    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.

    Beautiful RWB collection with a VFR750 Close up.

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

    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.
