  1. Hi Wald, Thank you for your donation of 50.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  2. If I got my facts straight, Bel-Ray also makes oil only for motorcycles. I use Bel-Ray Synthetic since 1988 or so with no issues. When I was in school and on a budget in the 80ties, I used a cheap Castrol oil from a supermarket, it turned into water within 200 miles, lesson learned back then. The bike, a 82 GS 550 Katana survived it. I always buy oil and filter after a on oil change, so the next oil batch sits already in the garage when needed.
  3. A silly question. Do they sell Bel Ray oil in Canada?
  4. I would not know as mine is a 4th gen.
  5. Just saw a Set of OEM site cases in red on CR in thr Wilmington area https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/mpo/d/wilmington-honda-vfr800m-panniers/7555850760.html
  6. You are welcome! I am German and a so called engineer, LOL!
  7. I have used them few times already. Great service.
  8. Have you tried the Dutch site Cmsnl.com ?

    No, this is not a crazy idea! I am thinking about a back up bike for the back up bike!
  10. I would love to do a track day with the VFR and the group, unfortunately, since I am located in CT, there is nothing close by. My last track day was many, many moons ago on the Nürburgring in Germany.
  11. Have you tried to introduce some vibration on the fitting? Sometimes it helps to break the bond between the threads.
  12. Now, you will laugh. I use an old matress cover which I sneaked from my mother 30 years ago or so. Still works, is soft and "light pink"
  13. A proper Hornet needs to have at least 3 cylinder, better 4, otherwise forget it! I have a '06 Hornet and love it (I switch between the Hornet and the 4th gen every other day) The Hornet is nicely rideable from 4000 rpm Annd turns into a angry Hornet above 8000 rpm! The biggest problem is the budget suspension. BTW, it is made in Italy
  14. Same problem here, need to refresh to get the site to work.
  15. Thank you Squirrelman and Terry. This will help.
  16. This is actually a good question! I am planning the same and was wondering if I have to remove the clutch slave from the cover before removing the cover. I am used to mechanical clutches so far. Any tips? Thanks.
  17. Nice, I like the left side exhaust placement. I thought you sold it or had it for sale.
  18. As Bmart explained, you do not lift, you pull it back while holding the center stand with you foot to the ground. By the way Bmart, Cavemen were much stronger than we are, lol!
  19. Now, this is dedication! Looking forward to see the end result of your restoration!
  20. Yes, it almost did! Funny to say, my dad was a tool maker, but he told me about sealing electrical connections with with special polymers 25 years or so ago. Great website!
