    Glacier National Park Aug 28 - Sept 5

    If we get some extra time, I'll try to hit that stretch of road up too!

    I had never heard of that before. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Fuel pump won't shut off and no spark.

    If I remember correctly, on klrtovfr's bike, with the fuel cut relay removed, the ecu provided ground to the connector once the key was turned on. It never cut the ground after the 2 second prime timer. That makes me think the fuel cut relay is not what is sticking. That pin on the connector had no continuity to ground until the key was turned on. This makes me think there is not a short on the switched ground wire in the fuel cut relay connector.

    Hooked it up to an '04 to verify fuel pump operation, and started it multiple times. Fuel pump ran and shut off when key was turned on, then started and ran fine.
  5. Hey guys and gals. I'm riding through glacier national park with my GF during the end of August and the beginning of September. We'll be staying on the east side for the first 3 or 4 days, and the west side for the rest of the trip. We are planning on catching the Beartooth Highway on the way home. I'll probably be on my '98 VFR and she's on an '04 FZ6. Are there any places that are recommended that we make sure not to miss? Any other tips for the trip? We're planning on riding the Going-to-the-sun road. I don't ever get a lot of vacation time from work, so this may be a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Thanks, Paul

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fW9TujlX8GA Here is a vid of one of my sessions at Road America on the '04 VFR. It definitely doesn't have the power down the straightaways that a liter bike does. This was the first time at RA with this bike.

    How was your cornering school? Enjoy it? I had a track day at Road America with the VFR yesterday and it was great. The VFR could use a bit more power on a track like that, but it was not a slouch by any means.

    A pic from the first track day with the bike. The VFR in its new environment!

    Here is the nearly finished paint job. Still have to add some black to the rear seat cover. Also have to add decals. Not sure if that part will get done before my first track day of the year next Wednesday.

    BR, it is in the midst of a new paint job. First track day for me this year is 5/25. I will send you some picture or post some up here when It's ready.

    Honestly, I never liked my GSX-R. I said for a year and a half that I'd "get used to it", but I never really felt good on it. It has gobs of power, and sticks well in corners, but it always felt a bit disconnected from it. It always felt more like a tool than part of me. My 600F4i on the other hand, felt great on the track and very natural. I was actually faster at road america on my bone stock F4i than on my GSXR, even though I'd hit much higher top speeds on the GSXR. I want to see how good I can get a VFR on a track. It will be a good challenge.

    And then I bought the track pig from you.

    I recognize those places. Go by them quite often.
