  1. Happy Birthday Travis!

  2. I was curious about the custom wheel u where talkin about. I was curious from which car the bolt parten matched up.

  3. How about a 3-spoke for the rear (just for you Rush2112!) and fit a F4i 3-spoke front wheel (which is basically a direct bolt on & lighter) What do you think?
  4. gll429, unfortunately I haven't seen any car wheels that style you want, sorry. I was thinking that most would want 6-spoke wheels, so that VFR's would finally have matching wheels front & rear. I do like the Buddy Club wheels, light (for a car) and a good match to the VFR front, I will put those on my list of ones to possibly use.
  5. Rotas are the lightest I can find, and I wasn't planning on doing 5-spoke designs because the stock wheels are 5-spoke. What styles are you looking for? And you gll429?
  6. Here are just some styles I could do. I think the weights would be real close to the same as stock, and I wouldn't consider the VFR wheel super heavy, 13.1 lbs for a 3rd, 5th & 6th gen. I would assume most will want a powdercoated black, but just about any color would be available. VFRcustomwheels.jpg
  7. I would be modifying car wheels, so no engineering. The modifications needed are land speed racing proven, narrowing them that is. I have one test wheel just about ready and was hoping to get some feedback before making up a couple more to sell. The cool thing is, I have found many styles that would look great on the back of VFR's, including a 6-spoke to match the fronts!
  8. I am looking to produce custom rear wheels for the VFR's, anyone interested? Weights will probably be the same as stock, I might be able to do a little lighter, it will depend on the style of rim. Should be looking around $600, powercoated. Several style possible, what get's your interest?
  9. Hey Man its me from central valley riders. No friends yet WTF.

    Decals Needed

    Unfortunately, I can't do the decals, you need a printed decal. Mine are just the cut style, I can overlay them, but a printed decal is ultimately what you want. Thanks for the recommend!
  11. There seems to be a lot of questions about rear wheel and tire sizes and fitment, here is the answers to all who inquire, please correct me if I make a mistake. Rear wheel ID picture vfrwheels.JPG 3rd Gen wheels, 90-93, the infamous 8-spoke Size: 17"x5.5" OE Tire: 170/60-17 Tire recommendations: 180/55-17 is the best handling tire you can put on a 5.5" rim, nothing else. The 170 will not put as big of a rubber contact patch down when cornering hard. The 190 tire will be too big, not as stable handling in hard cornering. Fitment: Will fit all VFR's 90-09 without any problems Weight: 13.1 lbs 4th gen, 94-97 Size: 17"x5.0" OE Tire: 170/60-17 Tire recommendations: 170/60-17 is recommended for the 5.0" rim, a 180 will work, but won't be as stable handling in hard cornering. Some may argue this, the 180 will work, but I think the 170 is a better choice. Fitment: Will fit all VFR's 90-09 without any problems Weight: approx 12 lbs, please confirm me this. 5th & 6th Gen, 98-01, 02-09 Size: 17"x5.5" OE Tire: 180/55-17 Tire recommendations: 180/55-17 is the best handling tire you can put on a 5.5" rim, nothing else. The 170 will not put as big of a rubber contact patch down when cornering hard. The 190 tire will be too big, not as stable handling in hard cornering. Fitment: Interchangable between 98-09 no problem, and will fit 90-97 with notching modification to hub mounting surface. The bolts for the brake rotor stick out instead of being flush, as shown in pic. This mod has been shown, use the search feature. Weight: 13.1 lbs vfrhubs.JPG
  12. I have put the CBR929 shock on my '02, here is how I did it. 3 problems you run into: 1) Shock length is wrong, too short, I made a top mount like they are doing on the 5th gen and I think the F3 shocks, I don't remember the measurement, but it needed to be longer, and I like to to my own calculations anyway so I know it is correct. I also made a longer one to raise the tail of it 2) The brake proportioning valve bracket is in the way of the reservoir on the shock, you need to cut it and make a new piece to weld in. The picture trys to illustrate it. You have to at least undo the top subframe mount and pull this thing out of there. Cut it, weld a new piece in it, paint it, put it back in, sounds easy, it is a little work though. Sorry, no pics from my bike, it is a little work to pull out and didn't take any before I put it in. vfrmod.GIF 3) Shock reservoir hits the brake lines next to the rear cylinder head. There is no way to take a pic of this, but the reservoir is really close to the cylinder head, I just had to push the metal brake lines that were in the way up a little bit, not much room at all, but I did make it work. I tried to flip around the reservoir, you would have to move/cut more stuff. Here is a pic of the compression adjuster, just requires a little longer flat head screw driver. Access to the preload is quite easy from the left side. Rebound adjuster is in the stock shock's position. CBR929 shock on VTEC, showing comp adjuster
  13. I absolutely love it! I was already thinking of this paint scheme for my wife's SV650!
  14. As I stated in another thread, I was able to fit the 929 shock on my VTEC. It fit real close to the cylinder head and metal brake lines, but it fit. I did have to modify the bracket that holds one of the brake valve units. And now with a long screwdriver I can adjust the comp and rebound pretty easily.
