  1. Check out GPbikes ( https://gpbikes.com/ ) I have been dealing with them for years with my Triumph and they recently became a Honda dealer and service center with online parts ordering. They are located in Ontario. Massive dealership and free shipping on orders over I think $50. Look forward to seeing the progress
  2. Did you manage to get everything in that you ordered?
  3. Greetings from a fellow Ontarian! Congrats on the new purchase, you'll love it
  4. Hey there mate, Unfortunately I haven't got any of the single sided ones made, no one seemed interested so I didn't invest in getting the CNC programming done from my manufacturer.
  5. Awesome! Hopefully you're not waiting long. Cheers mate!
  6. Try GP bikes https://gpbikes.com/ and select parts. (http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche.com/gpbikes/partsfinder.htm) I have never ordered online, usually call in or go in. They are local to me in Ontario, but they have free shipping on orders over $50. Huge dealership, great bunch of guys. My family and I have bought many motorcycles (new and used) through them and have ordered a ton of parts. Better service than any other dealership.
  7. Have you noticed that your bike is hard to start or Vtec doesn't work or kick in under normal operating characteristics? If so there might be a problem with your ignition pulse generator/wiring to it. If your Vtec works as normal follow the below troubleshooting guide directly from the Honda service manual.
  8. Just in case anyone was curious.... this is how a cold bike sitting for 3 weeks starts with a semi dead battery at 1 degree Celsius (34F) with the fast idle was nut adjusted to 3 turns. It will rev up to 2000 rpm until the cold oil gets flowing then up to 2300 rpm until a coolant temperature of about 44C (111F) where it slowly comes down until the temp reaches 60C (140F) where the rpms will go back to the normal 1200 rpm idle. And, yes, even before the swap it was this slow to start in the cold especially after sitting so long. I should also mention, the idle when cold used to be around 800-900 rpm VID_20191101_171655712.mp4
  9. haha, NEVER tear the mattress tag! those legal authorities will be after you in a heart beat! My theory on the wax unit is over time the bushings and little plastic grommets in the linkages wear down and slowly allow the valves to not be as open as they would normally be. Essentially compensating for a horrible design! my 1995 VW golf with a single port fuel injector had a much more sophisticated starting system.....Electronically controlled!
  10. I was having issues with cold starting and no high idle, so I replaced my fast idle wax unit - lubricated my linkages and re-synced the starter valves. After replacement, zero change in the characteristics of he bike. So I decided to turn the "non-adjustable" nut on the fast idle wax unit by 3 turns. Made the world of difference.
  11. Sold the last one the other day. I really underestimated the demand for these. I will be having some more made, but I'm going to be away from home on business for the next week and a half so I won't be able to post them back up until I'm back. I have also been experimenting with some paint and I'll be posting a couple in matte black as well when I'm back.
  12. Hey Everyone, Sorry for any late responses I have been out of the country with no access to internet. I have opened up an eBay listing for this bracket to help me keep track of all of the orders! If anyone is interested please check it out at http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/706-53473-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575378759&campid=5338273189&customid=&icep_item=123909098714&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229529&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&toolid=11111
  13. I would be very cautions about pushing in the calipers against the rotors or using a screwdriver to pry the caliper open against the rotor as well. you do not want to bend the rotor or gouge the surface with the screwdriver. A bent rotor - even slight - will cause a very unsettling brake pulse. Rotors aren't cheap your better off taking the calipers off.
  14. Glad to hear all of the install went well and that you are happy with the part. Bike looks really good!
  15. My bike used to do the same thing in super cold weather, but, it would only happen in gear just as the clutch Leger switch would trip. The bike would Rev itself up even with my hand off the throttle. From what I've heard it's some anti-stall programming in the computer. Since I instapped my rapid bike, it no longer does it. As many suggested, it was as the fast idle wax unit. I replaced it ($120 canadian pesos and a lot of cursing) only to find out that the one I replaced was still good
