  1. I read this on another forum and have doubts about the claim:
  2. Is it true the oem quick shifter compromises regular shifting by taking up some of the real estate? I have not gotten around to installing mine yet and read that somewhere.
  3. Does anyone know what size oil filter MAGNET works on an 8th Gen.?
  4. Good luck! As of April there were 2 left in a nationwide dealer search. I bought the set from Fox Powersports in Michigan. The other one was out east and the dealer didn't actually have the bags. The ones I got had minor cosmetic damage, was missing the rubber mounting steps and most importantly one of the mounting hooks was damaged (broken off just below the arc.) They had probably been returned after damage. They gave me a full refund AND let me keep the bags.😁 I may try to plastic weld the missing portion but zip ties keep it in place. There's still plenty of meat to hang from.
  5. These Pazzo knockofs slipped right in and work great. They fold up in the event of dropping to prevent breaking. It's best to send a message detailing exactly what style and color combo you want. https://www.ebay.com/itm/7-Style-Levers-For-Honda-VFR800-F-2002-2020-CBF1000-2006-2009-Clutch-Brake-CNC-/254290622902?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0
  6. Dunlop Roadsmart 4 installed 1000 mi ago Live them on my VTR1000 as well
  7. Took 2 months to come from China (ebay)
  8. I put about 700 miles on my roadsmart 4 on my 8th Gen this weekend and love them. I have not hit any rain yet though.
  9. Great bike! I got mine 2014 in March and love it! It's a heavy bike that is still pretty nimble in the twisties. Perfect ergonomics and just the right amount of rider aids. Enjoy!
  10. Dang, I'm about to install Roadsmart 4's on my 2014. I love the RS 3's on my VTR. I hope your experience with RS 4 is the exception.
  11. I also used the-U bolt base sands U-bolt at the gas tank bolts. On my 8th gen I do not need an 6"extension but carry one in case I expand a tank bag. I've been using a Ram x-grip for 8 years with no problems.
  12. Ok Officer Curmudgeon, if you are fortunate enough to live in great riding areas I couldn't agree more. But I for one live in Chicago and have to navigate through a potential shit-storm of road debree and delays en route to anywhere. A heads up from my phone of a traffic jam or shredded tire could greatly impact my escape from the city/burbs.
  13. As you can see, grab handles are removed. Please post what you do to add a stealthy grab point.
