  1. OK after second test ride the issue has completely disappeared so obviously it WAS the PCIII. So since I am removing the PCIII I'm guessing I need to remove the O2 eliminators as well?
  2. OK I moved this to a new thread so I wouldn't hijack some else's.😐 To recap my VFR was dying most of the time whenever I came to a stop at red lights or stop signs and occasionally just decelerating into a tight turn. It would always start right back up no prob but the same would repeat at the next stop. Idle is where it's supposed to be, new fuel pump, cleaned and balanced injectors. plus I could find no loose vacuum lines or loose connectors. To me the simplest and easiest troubleshooting was to unplug the Power Commander III and see what's up. I did exactly that and took it for test ri
  3. Hey, Hello, and Howdy! I spent some time in Las Cruces while stationed @ Holloman AFB near AlamoGhetto. No good restaurants there so me and a buddy would go to Las Cruces to eat @ OutBack and TX Roadhouse weekly sometimes twice a week! I also have an 05 VFR that's got only 7K miles on it. How many miles on yours?
  4. Sorry I seem to have skipped this intro. I am finally back in the saddle again after taking a 6 year break. Currently living in DFW, TX area exploring the local area on a 6th gen 05 VFR that is finally back in running condition due to the advice of several regulars on this forum. My thanks to you all. I am not the original owner but was lucky enough to find this ride back in 2012? with only 4k miles on it! And I've only added 3K so this beauty is barely broken in with a little over 7,000 miles on it. This is my approximately 16th? bike I've owned since starting in 1981 and I still haven'
  5. Grum, I believe that the bike returns to idle properly but I will try it tomorrow and post results. I am assuming that you mean with the bike in neutral and not going down the road? Also I seriously doubt that they attempted a Starter Valve adjustment with the previously bad injectors... the bike wouldn't even crank and stay running until I had them professionally cleaned. Cogswell, I am not getting any FI errors that I know of but will make sure to notice next time it occurs. Thanks for the school on what to check. This weekend I'm gonna take a look under the hood? 😉 and look at vac
  6. The decreased idle and engine dying has never happened with the engine cold...it is after I've been riding a bit. But it has happened on both warm days and cool days so it doesn't look like it is temperature related. I bought this VFR as is with a Two Brother exhaust and a Power Commander III installed. I have never changed any of the settings for the Power Commander as I'm not sure how and don't have a manual for it. Could the Power Commander settings be causing the problem?
  7. I should clarify that the bike is not doing this everyday. It reoccurs sporadically and I'm trying to figure out the circumstances under which it happens (cold engine vs. hot engine, etc.) There seems to be no consistency so far. I don't think my idle speed needs adjusting as it normally is just fine at close to 1200 rpm after the engine warms up. I also believe the starter valves are working properly as the bike cold cranks just fine, rpms a little higher while it is warming up and then properly comes back down once warm. Do the starter valves affect the rpm after the engine is warmed?
  8. My 2005 is also doing this. While decelerating coming to a red light or stop sign, you pull in the clutch, the rpms go below normal idle speed and the engine stalls. It always starts back up right away, but next redlight...same thing. I spoke briefly about this to my local Honda shop and they said it could be the "Idle Air Control Valve." Has anyone heard of this or know where it is on the bike?
  9. Aaand after waiting for 142 days with the bike in the shop, here is the result: So glad to be back in the saddle again after a 7 year break. Anyone care to guess the mileage on this?
  10. Gahhh, we've been Rick-rolled VFR style. I'm surprised Rick Astley wasn't photoshopped into the seat...😝
  11. Got the injectors back from RC...summary report is attached. Looks like they cleaned up pretty good. Hopefully this is the last of the problems and I'll be riding again soon.
  12. Thanx for the info, advice, and well wishes....I'll post the results when I get them.
  13. OK injectors are are sent out to RCinjectors (because they had a faster turnaround time for approx the same price). Wish me luck that they flow well and I can be back in the saddle soon without having to buy new ones! Thanx guys.
  14. Thanx for all the advice and I will take it all under consideration if the Honda shop can't get them flowing right. Can anyone tell me approx how much these injector cleaning services charge if I send them myself? oops nevermind....just checked out prices @ Mr. injector...seems to be $18-25 each, a lot better than buying new ones!
