  1. That's exciting! Looking forward to seeing it!
  2. Very cool!! What kind of build are you going for?
  3. Curious what their streetfighter will look like, or if they'll put it in the Monster! There's always the KTM 1190 RC8, bit of a rare bike from what I hear though.
  4. You can always wait for Ducati to put their V4 (from the Panigale) into their SuperSport! The SuperSport currently is a revvy V-twin.
  5. Haha, I appreciate it. Now I won't have to try it myself! How much did you actually fill after running to empty? This bike is amazing. It legitimately feels like I've found this missing part of me 😅 Although, as someone used to standard/naked bikes, it's a shame Honda doesn't sell the 800X in the US!
  6. Sounds good! It's a very minor naggle, if anything haha. I love the range on this thing and VTEC makes it a perfect fast commuter bike.
  7. Haha, every one loves Canada! Also, my (US) manual also says 21.2L (5.60 gal) so I think it might just be a typo on the US Honda website lol
  8. That begs the question, are the US Honda VFR website and manual wrong in giving a 5.2 gallon capacity? (5.2 gallons = 19.7 liters) Although, these are the specs listed on the Honda websites for the most recent VFR800F models: VFR 800 (US) - 5.2 gal (19.7L) VFR 800 (UK) - 21.5L VFR 800 (Australia) - 21.5L VFR 800 (Japan) - 21L Damn it, I'm going to have to run 'er dry to find out lol
  9. Right! That's the entire reason for the discrepancy then? The manual also says the E flashes with 1 gallon left and that's normally about 4.3 gallons used up for me. Would make sense for a standard 5.2 gallon fuel tank.
  10. There seem to be some differing numbers of 5.20 and 5.60 gallons (19.7 and 21.2 liters, respectively). There isn't a difference in capacity between countries is there? Searching through posts for Eighth Gen fuel ranges, some members from Spain, Australia, Germany, and UK have filled 19.7 to 20.4 liters (5.2 to 5.39 gallons). And yet, the manual I have and Honda North America's website for the VFR800F notes a 5.2 gallon fuel capacity. Some reviews on the 2014/15 mention 5.6 gallons. On my 2015, haven't ran to dry but most I've filled is 4.738 and that's 15 or so miles after the E light coming on at 216 miles on the trip odometer. Haha, it's been bothering me and I'm just really curious.
  11. Hi everyone! Got my license almost 2 years ago and only been riding for the past 10 months. I bought a 2005 BMW F650CS, put 7k miles on it, and fell in love with riding. I was looking for a 2017 CB100 EX but decided to go with a VFR. In fact, closest power feel/delivery I've felt is an R3 and XSR900 at a Yamaha demo day. Everything just feels so different!! Good different though. Can't even explain how much better it is to go from a single cylinder to four! Whole bike doesn't jolt going into 1st gear and mirrors are crystal clear on the freeway. I did have a couple of questions.. 1) I rode the bike 2 hours home after purchase and, the right handgrip, at high speed coasting (past 75mpg) has such a numbing buzz that it put my hand to sleep after 25mins. I figure I'd change the bar ends and put some grip puppies on to alleviate that. No buzz at all on the left grip though! What is the most likely solution to this? 2) When coming to a stop at 1st gear, I hear a whirring noise start and stop from below the bike. Is this the fan? I don't hear it when coming to a stop in 2nd or neutral. I've only owned the bike for about 2 weeks and I can see what the fuss is all about haha.
