  1. You have the center stand and the fairing on the side stand.
  2. Looks like you have every option except the clock. Really nice!
  3. I used one of those hoses with all the angles in it and made a piece using the 180. Still on the bike, but have a new piece from David Silver spares when I need it.
  4. I had the same issue and David Silver spares saved me.
  5. There is a 90 VFR in Mckinney TX. for $500 with what appears to be a Two Brothers left exit exhaust on it. It has been dumped in a field and sat for a long time so it is no beauty. forgot to mention it's on Facebook marketplace. Hope this helps someone.
  6. You could have a small exhaust leak that is letting air in and thus a mixture that will combust.
  7. A little history is good me thinks. My rear brake has worked fine until I took the footpeg mount off and it was hanging by the line to the caliper. It was even upside down at one point. Come time to ride I found the rear brake would not build pressure, the pedal just went all the way through it's travel. I tried bleeding, but it would hardly push any fluid at all. I found an oem Honda rebuild kit in stock here in town and also got a Spiegler rear brake line. With the new kit and line you couldn't ask for better once bled. It was good for the ride to get it inspected, but the next ride it required much more pressure to get any action and the brake felt wooden, almost like the caliper was frozen on the pins. Now the pedal goes through it's travel and building very little pressure and that happened the 3rd time I rode it. Kind of stumped as to what is going on. Any help would be appreciated.
  8. I finally got around to taking pictures of the ZRX and thanks to Danno I know how to load them now. You mentioned you wanted to see the bike so here goes. Well 2 of them don't want to seem to resize so I guess this is it.
  9. The starter clutch has to be making that sound. The Visions I have are known for it. A 4yr. old battery really does need load tested just to confirm it's condition.
  10. Well I got these resized and loaded. This thing sounds glorious. A little loud even with the baffle installed. Sounds perfect with earplugs and isn't even too bad without for short rides. It's a lot lighter. I think I posted the weight savings in a previous post. I can get rid of the footpeg/muffler mount altogether for some more savings. I will need to keep the upper part that the side panels bolt to.
  11. I think I may have this figured out. Thanks a lot Danno for the links. Here are some photo's from months ago. I have 2 more I want to get on here, but it may take some work to figure that out as some things don't seem to work the way they should. I did lose .25 of a pound with a Spiegler braided rear brake line and aluminum banjo bolts. Installed the oem Honda rebuild kit in the master and it worked great for about 1 long ride. Now I'm right back to not building any pressure. Not sure what is going on.
  12. Thanks a lot for that info. Now I just need to find out how to resize things.
  13. Sorry, but I thought I posted it was error code 200. Going to try another way if I can figure it out. All I get is upload failed. I don't know anything else to try. I have drug files and tried to copy them as well as choose files.
  14. I can attempt the copy/paste and see, but the cookie thing is not anything I am familiar with. Oatmeal raisin is my favorite.
  15. I get an error code when I do that. Never had any problem when I posted pictures before. Apple tells me it is something with the server on the forum and I have posted pictures other places.
  16. Sure would like to post some pictures I need to talk to someone that does the IT work on the forum. Anyone know who I need to contact? The ti Axle and nut came in the very same day the post office told me it was still being held by customs in Chicago. No tracking updates or anything. PO has a lot of problems if you ask me. Took the nut in to get it hollowed out and total saved was .25 of a pound. The new muffler showed up and could not see anyway for it to mount and actually stay in place. Had to have some stainless work and welding done to some ancillary pieces, but I think it will work out nicely. Total weight saved is 7.8 lbs which puts me at a total of 19.24 lbs lighter. The muffler savings may turn out to be more depending on a few things. Have to wait and see. I needed to get the bike safety inspected for new plates, but without the muffler I knew not to try and then I found the rear brake master wouldn't build any pressure. Local shop actually had the oem Honda kit in stk. Think I kind of lucked out there.
  17. Might check and see if there is water in your fuel. Did it run the same after the ignition switch bypass?
  18. I put a fifth gen aluminum lever on my 3rd and for some reason it shifts much better now. Don't know what that would be down to other than the length is a bit different, but not by much. I did it for the looks and being lighter, but the performance is a big plus.
  19. A leak would cause a slow rise, but have no effect on the fall. Thats why I feel it's gummed up or something causing friction in both directions.
  20. Probably needs some cleaning done on the slide and bore. Gas residue can gum them up.
  21. Some observations after a few short rides. No vibration was noticed from removing the weight behind the left footpeg. Engine rpm was only up to around 5,500 so it is good to there. A pull to redline may reveal some vibration at higher rpm so time and rpm will tell. It does seem to rev a little quicker which would be down to the aluminum drive plates in the clutch. The new sprockets and chain smoothed things up noticeably. I really think the old chain was knackered as the brits would say, yet the sprockets didn't show any wear. I checked to see if there was any voltage on the ground on the rt side of the frame. I measured .03 at idle and .04 at 5,000 rpm. I had already made a wire to go from the ground point on the frame straight to the ground on the battery. Hooked it up and reduced the voltage on the ground by .02 at both rpm's. There wasn't much there to start with, but it is now reduced to a better level so i am happy. It was easy to do.
  22. That play in your sprocket looks fine to me. I had that with a brand new sprocket on.
  23. I was told by Apple that the error I get when trying to post photo's emanates from the forum's server and not my computer. the error I get is 200 or it could be -200. I would like to get back to being able to post photo's again. wold you know anything about the problem?

  24. How do those work as far as the metal fairings the locate off the tab on the stock 3rd gen footage mounts, or are they one the bike?
  25. Well got all the plastic repaired as best I could and it's serviceable. Waiting on the weather now and time as I am working 11 hours days for a few weeks. Getting up at 4 am kind of sucks. Got a 5th gen shifter from a guy that had a spare as the one he had on the bike he was parting out was going to be rubbing on the metal fairings by the measurements he gave me. He had the spare and the measurements changed to ones that would work. Smoothed all the parting lines off and was kind of surprised to see over a quarter pound of weight savings, .27 to be exact and it is much better looking. Even uses a small 8mm headed bolt compared to the 10mm on the stock shifter. I plan on using some of the money from all the hours on the ti axle and nut. Really interested in how much weight that will save.
