  1. No, the DSH95 is a dark metallic grey, which matches the colour of the heat shield.
  2. Thanks guys! 👍 Lorne, that's the exact reason I want to take it off.....it has some scuffing etc. so I thought I'd remove it and repaint. EDIT: Further to the above advice, after removing the master cyl. bolts I still couldn't tease the shield out. After perusing the service manual, I loosened the pivot nut so that I could pull the footpeg holder out a tad and was then able to remove the shield. I have the required tools incl. torque wrench to tighten the pivot nut after re-installing the shield. With the help of a local Honda motorcycle restorer and long
  3. Hi folks, I need to remove the heat shield on the RHS near the foot peg ('01 Gen5). I refer to the metal shield which is held by two bolts towards the front, and another bolt holding the brake proportioning. Are there any tips/tricks with this as I'm having trouble removing it. TIA
  4. Thanks for the welcome! Only have a couple of crappy pics so far but will provide much more (including places) in the coming days/weeks/months! 😉
  5. Hi folks, have just acquired a 2001 VFR800 with just 13,000kms on the clock. Look forward to learning from all you experienced Viffer mob.🙂 Have ridden a vast array of bikes over the years. Have 2 other classic bikes in the stable....a '72 CB500K1 and a '78 Suzuki GS750E. Cheers, Himble (Andy) Perth, Western Australia. (West of Everywhere)
