  1. Sorry for the dumb question. The coolant reservoir on this bike is well-hidden and very opaque, so it is difficult to get a clear reading. Of course I can see the level much better from down the fill hole. Just wondering if you guys know of a better way to check the level, either judging from how full it is from the fill hole, or something else. I don't know...
  2. You definitely don't need copper. These motorcycles are engineered very well, that's just not necessary. You need to use an oil-resistant sealant that covers the temperature and pressure range of the crankcase and a silicone weatherproofing sealant for the CKP sensor grommet. If you want to go with Permatex then this is all you need: Permatex Clear RTV Silicone Adhesive Sealant Permatex Ultra Black Maximum Oil Resistance RTV Silicone Gasket Maker You could use the black for the grommet as well, it's just a bit of overkill.
  3. You will need to disconnect the sensor, but only once you remove the crankcase cover. There is a bracket that attaches it to the crankcase. Be sure to use the correct sealant, and only in the indicated places. Check your old gasket to see where it was applied on assembly. The grommet for the CKP sensor requires a different sealant than the Threebond you use for the crankcase itself.
  4. A motorcycle with no soul, a playstation-like throttle and a long road of development ahead of it until it can charge quickly and come at an affordable price point with decent components. Cool, I guess...
  5. Man, isn't that sad... I'm going to miss the sound a VFR makes going through the gears. Hopefully it will still be legal for us to ride in 2030, and we're not limited by mileage.
