  1. Unfortunately not mine, it didn't take long for the designed to get copied. Already tried fighting it but nothing I can do. They do fit the 5th Gen that have the black bezel. But not quite the same as the 6th gen Since the angle of the triple Tree is slightly different. I wish I knew where the forum for it was for the 5th Gen. Sorry!
  2. I bought a 3m clear bra protector that covers the lower front edge of the lower fairing. So farvtgey seem to work alright. But not a significant amount of coverage
  3. Back in stock! https://www.ebay.ca/itm/124793447873?mkevt=1&mkcid=1&mkrid=706-53473-19255-0&campid=5338273189&customid=&toolid=10001&pub=5575378759&icep_ff3=1&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229529&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg
  4. Hey there. I'm hoping to have another 10 made by the end of this week. Just waiting on my manufacturer. They won't be black though, the will be SS. But any black enamel paint will work on them if you wish to paint.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Maybe! I plan on heading up to Orleans to visit some family this summer - might be able to work out a meet up spot
  8. 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.
  9. 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 properly due to added stresses.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
