    Cold startup quirk?

    Another cold startup today. Held the button for three seconds and she fired up no issues. Must be the nature of the beast I guess Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    As far as I know, the plugs are original @22000 miles Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    @Grum Regular 87 octane. I'm not sure what the previous owner ran as I've only had the bike for 2 months. I have ran about 3 tankfuls of 87 through and I have no issues out on the road. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Cold startup quirk?

    Well I'll be! I just went out for a ride and she fired right up first try! Rolled her out of the garage, key on, fuel pump primes, hold start button for maybe 3 or 4 seconds. I think before I was only giving it maybe a full second of crank before letting up. Both my SV and my Magna start within a full revolution so maybe I was thinking the VFR would be the same. I will try and reproduce my technique next time. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Cold startup quirk?

    I found a post where someone had flooded the motor, and the flood-start procedure worked. When I ride, I ride at least 20miles. I'm fairly positive I don't have a flooded condition. I am still yet to try the two key on sequence.. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    I will try that the next time it has sat overnight. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Cold startup quirk?

    I haven't tried that yet. I can hear it prime when I first turn the key to ignition. Every time Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Cold startup quirk?

    Every cold startup I have to crank her over twice before she starts. First long crank 5 secs or so she won't fire. Second crank starts immediately and purrs at 2000rpm til she comes down to 1200. Battery at 12.9v cold. New Air filter. 22k miles valves not checked. Starter valves not synched (yet) Every startup throughout the day no issues. Just that first initial crank won't fire. Thoughts? Edit: Bike is stored in a garage. Could a temperature difference mess with the IAT enough to think that it doesn't need a rich mixture right away? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Another successful Year

    I'm about to put mine down for the winter as well.. [emoji26] So far I'm liking the VFR.. only had her a month or two but we connect more each ride. My front PR4 is scalloped something fierce so it's about time for some new shoes. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Connector gets hot!

    I eliminated the small connector. Cold start high idle battery voltage is 14.1v @2000RPM 13.6ish @1200RPM Cooling fan running brings it down to 12.7v and will slowly drop if the fan runs continuous while sitting idle. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Is there any drawback to just eliminating the small connector? It looks like Honda made it plug and play for ease of assembly on the line. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Connector gets hot!

    Well, I thought all was good. The wire is still getting a little warmer than I like. I should have cut out the small plug while the harness was out and just replaced that whole run of wire to the 30a fuse. I'm sure it's just as burnt up and corroded as the old fuse holder Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

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

    I'm not usually a fan of rim tape, but it looks pretty good right there! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Charging system voltage?

    Parts are OEM from what I can tell. I'm not having any charging issues at the moment. Battery is a few weeks old, bike has been sitting for about a week because of rain and low temps and the battery reads 12.8v Previous owner had a battery that left standing after charging was 12.4v so I was double checking the charging system if I'm going to put in a new battery.
