  2. Hifibre, Extreme Creations in Australia makes a conversion kit - https://www.extremecreations.com.au/1098-ducati-hub-conversion-kit-for-vfr800 They supply a shim to fit the hub, a spacer to align the wheel and an adaptor to mount the brake caliper. You have to supply a Ducati wheel, hub and caliper

    I recommend laying a few strips of bacon across the top of turkey - gives it more flavor and helps keep it moist. And, you know, bacon 🙂

    Potential Coffman Full Exhaust

    As robborboy posted Coffman makes exactly one complete exhaust system - for the Grom, a single cylinder unfaired bike. When someone rolls up on a VFR Coffman will look at the tightly packaged V4, think about the limited market and politely decline to work on it.

    I went ahead and pinged BW, got the following reply -

    That's disappointing, "next year" is a very small step from "not in our plans" I wonder if multiple VFR header questions would get them moving.......

    Which tires for upcoming track day?

    I had forgotten about this thread, should update - I went Q3+ and been very happy with them. Good feedback, quicker turn in. Unfortunately the track day didn't happen - sometimes life gets in the way. Heading out for a ride the other day I noticed this weird pattern on the rear. Not sure what would cause that......

    Which tires for upcoming track day?

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. After the suggestions here I'll be trying out a set of Dunlop Q3+ - will let you all know how it turns out
  9. Looking for some advice from the community Bike is an 02 6th gen with an RC51 front end. Currently rolling on Michelin PR2 with the dual compound tech. I've done a few track days and mostly sporty riding on this set and been very pleased. Typically i'm in the back or middle of the intermediate group Important - quick to warm, grip, good feel Not so important - wet grip (if its wet, i'm not pushing, i'm just trying to get somewhere so I can dry off) longest life (I'm willing to spend on tires) My last few sets have all been Michelin and they given really good performance and wear, will probably stick with them. What do folks recommend - PR4s? PR5s? Something more sport focused? Any info/advice would be much appreciated

    Yes, I'm still very interested. Shipping from Oz would be expensive but if that's what's necessary then that's what's necessary. When they say 20 orders do they mean 20 deposits? Or 20 fully payed?

    A few available on Yahoo Japan - http://buyee.jp/item/search/query/nc35/category/2084008672?sort=cbids&order=d&translationType=1 Bring back one for me
  12. In my mind its not a lot of money - someone else did the measuring, thinking and cutting. keef has been doing a long term test. There's no way I could replicate it for $235AU, not even close
  13. Thanks for that - looks like a 520 sprocket is available
