  1. I'm sold out of both the black versions and the versions with the VFR logo on them. But yes, that is my listing! I'm in Newmarket. Bout an hr and a half ish away from Waterloo. If you are interested and wanna pick it up, PM me. We can circumvent eBay
  2. My guess would be between 30 and 50. The prototyped parts where you got the stl file from were printed through a company called proto3000 Www.proto3000.com If you are interested contact Chris mcaloney as he's familiar with the parts.
  3. These spacers are almost like a really firm hi-density foam Material. I'd recommend using a TPU material from the FDM process. This will be the most cost effective approach. You will see some layering, but it will be durable.
  4. That is an unfortunate series of events. I have not personally had this sort of experience. I'm taking a guess that over the years there may have been an update to the shock adjuster and the housing has a different size. The knob you received has a clear plastic base, mine is all solid black throughout. You can adjust the shock without the knob, you will need a wrench to turn the screw in or out. Just be cautious as to not over tighten or loosen the screw. Clockwise increases the preload on the shock making it stiffer and counter clockwise decreases the preload making it softer.
  5. After you get a few more miles under your belt with the rapid bike. I highly recommend updating the % load scales and rpm scales to max out at the limits of where the auto tune is working. This will give you a much more accurate tune as your incriments get smaller. After work I'll take a picture of my tune as an example
  6. Maybe! I plan on heading up to Orleans to visit some family this summer - might be able to work out a meet up spot
  7. Awesome! I just sent it out last night for you. I saw that you were in Ontario and thought I could do a ride-by drop off to save you on shipping, but realized it'd be a 7 hour round trip with nowhere to have a washroom break (thanks provincial lock down). Hope if comes in fast for you! If you have any questions about installation, let me know as I have a short PDF with basic instructions.
  8. Kinda actually digging the whole two-tone look
  9. Beautiful Bike! And, I'm quite envious that you get to store that beauty inside your home!
  10. A lot of cars these days have hydraulic lifters or hydraulic tappets which eliminates the need to adjust valve lash as the lifter/tappet automatically compensates for wear. Unless the Lifter/tappet has gone bad. A lot of motorcycles do not have hydraulic lifters or tappets because it adds complexity to the engine as there now has to be a complex route of oiling channels to provide oil pressure to these components. From what I understand as well, higher RMP engines generally don't use hydraulic lifters do to some issues with supplying proper oil pressures and function pr
  11. Taking part in those discussions on industrial consumer products was entertaining, followed by horribly boring statistical calculations padded with safety margins. So I can only imagine that the initial testing efforts for larger products like motorcycles would be awesome! Minus the math
  12. Yes, however, just shows that they have made updates to the internals. What those updates exactly are I don't know and I'm sure it's more than just the cams. But, it is possible that those updates helped with the keeping the clearance within spec longer
  13. It would appear that between the 6th and 8th Gen, honda has updated their cam shaft part numbers. This could partially be a reason why
  14. I was able to get a few more of these made if anyone is interested https://www.ebay.ca/itm/124593348750 Any questions, let me know! PS, Soon ill have some non-VFR branded ones as well. my supplier ran out of material so hopefully early next week ill have those too.
