  1. @Duc2V4, how do you like that Denali, I was thinking of getting one. I'd like a horn that sounds like a mid 70's Cadillac, my reference for a horn that gets peoples attention in primal fear kind of way.
  2. I'm thinking that it probably has lower initial ratio up to stock ratio at the other end, so it will require more rotation to get full throttle. It might hit the inside of the housing before this happens. They could have made it higher ratio than stock at full throttle to keep the same rotation but then the OD might have been too big. Try loosening the throttle housing screws and see if that gives more rotation. Once you figure out what part of it is making contact you might be able to file a bit off the cam to get it to go the rest of the way. I assume you still have the stock one around, com
  3. If your brakes are already delinked you could grab one of these and put a Brembo caliper on it;
  4. I assume you got the throttle tube from G2 Ego? I am interested in this because I wouldn't mind losing some of the off-idle sensitivity. Since you changed cables and the throttle tube I think you need to figure out what is limiting travel. In the picture where you are lifting the throttle to the stop the cable looks like it is going slack in the pulley. If you try opening the throttle further while doing this will it go? With some of G2's cams you have to relieve the inside of the throttle housing for clearance. It seems odd that the return cable would let it go further though, unless you have
  5. @ridervfr YSR50 in the garage 👍, but surely you mean '89 not '98. One of the coolest 'toy' bikes ever.
  6. Right hand thread, sounds like you were going the wrong way, so it will be good and tight now. As Terry suggested, penetrating oil (applied at the split so it gets into the thread) can't hurt. Beyond that some heat (again on the lower threaded portion) will expand the aluminum swingarm faster than the steel bolt. Sometimes a good rap with a brass or aluminum drift directly on the head of the bolt helps free up corrosion in the threads. For reinstall wire brush the threads and apply some anti-seize to prevent galvanic corrosion and torque to spec.
  7. Awesome story! So many great memories for both of you. After the first post I was going to point out that the Falls are better on the other side😉, but you are obviously aware of that and the border was closed anyway. It'd be a good trip to take her on when life returns to normal. Thanks for sharing.
  8. 👀 Please do. When I saw the A&A kit my first thought was 'probably a good thing those aren't available anymore'. Second thought was 'damn I want to do that'.
  9. Agreed, many years ago I had to change the lighter socket on an early Acura, I nearly had to gut the interior. I had a vision of the car starting out as a lighter socket travelling down the assembly line.🤬
  10. That bastid thing was the first part I removed on my VFR when I got it and I couldn't believe a trim piece with 3 bolts could be like one of those Chinese twisted wire puzzles. Eventually I did the same as you and loosened the swingarm pivot bolt. If I had to remove the wheel or exhaust to get a damn heat shield off I would have had to make something simpler just on principal. I absolutely love the bike but only Honda could make something so simple a complete pain in the ass.
  11. DISLIKE; The cheesy looking ‘condom’ mirrors. They might have been hip at the time or emulating the NR750 or whatever, but 22 years on they look like an afterthought. LIKE; The 2000-2001 mirrors I just installed. I ordered these from Honda the day I got the bike, the left side came in the next day in early June. The right side finally showed up yesterday nearly 3 months later.
  12. It sounds like you are having a similar experience to me, I wasn’t really looking but a clean ‘98 came along with similar miles at a similar price and I couldn’t say no. I also found a ton of chain spooge everywhere and years of brake dust and spent several days cleaning the bike up. I’ve ridden it most of the summer now and every time I get off it or even look at I think ‘damn, what a great bike’. I hope you enjoy your as much as I enjoy mine.
  13. I’ve always preferred sound technical advice to a coin toss but as you please. A fuse will not change how a malfunctioning circuit operates until it blows.
  14. This post makes me think of Rage Against the Machine’s first album cover, both in name and image. Top marks to Grum for quality of advice and patience in the face of adversity.
