  1. I have a 2001 5th gen with the stock windshield. I will be putting Helibars on it soon and already feel that a taller windshield would be more comfortable with stock bars but probably even more so with Helibars. Can anyone provide some pictures of some options and opinions on what they have done for great wind protection and comfort but ideally not making it look like Gold Wing. Thanks!
  2. For sale is a gently used 5th gen OEM seat. Excellent condition. Located in Findlay, OH. Asking $90 OBO plus shipping within Continental US.
  3. Great finds come to those who scour eBay constantly...I found a pretty minty red cowl for my 01 for less than $40 shipped (original OEM part too...not Chinese knockoff).
  4. Anyone use VF1000F clip ons or SV 650 Helibars instead of VFR800 Helibars? Should all be 41mm. I have seen these alternatives cheaper than buying new Helibars for my 5th gen. If they would work, would stock lines and cables work? Thanks!
  5. My dad (Honda F6B), uncle (HD Electra Glide), and cousin (BMW R9T) returned last week from a 4 day trip from Ohio to Maggie Valley, NC. About 1500 miles round trip on my 31k mile 2001 5th gen (AMAZING bike). We rode the Tail of the Dragon (of course), visited Wheels Through Time museum, and rode the wheels off our bikes. Great trip, great roads, and a safe time had by all. Lots of highway time on the way back made me want to upgrade the ol' 5th gen with some helibars, taller screen, and a throttle lock though... Happy motoring! PS - you must eat at Butts on the Creek if you stay in Maggie Valley...we found it on the first night and ate there 3 times.
  6. So if I get a spare passenger left peg, I can move my helmet lock mechanism between stock and modified peg? AWESOME!
  7. A little off topic, but could you post a pic of your passenger side mods? I may do the same to go no peg, yes helmet lock.
  8. @adkfinn, that looks great, for sure. I also wonder if I could just buy another OEM right side passenger peg and grind most of it off, then sand and polish it enough to work.
  9. @SEBSPEED, would you still be able to make this bracket? If so, PM me. Thanks!
  10. Has anyone found an exhaust bracket to replace the stock footpeg exhaust mount for a 5th gen? For reference, I am running a Staintune stainless high-pipe. I would just like to remove both rear pegs for cleaner look when cowl is installed. Thanks!
  11. Hello, I have a 31k mile, red 5th gen VFR and just got back from a 1500 mile trip to Maggie Valley, NC. Following the semi-uncomfortable trip, I noted I will be looking for the following touring mods: 1. touring/sport-touring windscreen 2. lowered pegs 3. helibars 4. Kaoko/Throttlemeister throttle lock 5. Givi top box and solo luggage rack. (can't do bags with high pipe) I have an OEM 2001 seat (already have Sargent) that could be involved in a trade if the right deal came along, otherwise, please let me know if anyone has some items like this for sale. Thanks!
