    Check out this link if you haven't already. Check all of the connectors for signs of heat or corrosion.

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    I think one of the things that has slowed the chatter here is that a lot happens on VFRD FB. It is obviously more on the social side of things VFR.

    Somebody should link the new page to the VFRD FB page. There are folks there who may not be here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    5th & 6th VFR 800 Header build

    I have followed this thread even though I have a header and won't likely buy as my old ass is slowing down. I just wanted to say WELL DONE! This is what makes this place great.

  7. Be careful around StLouis. The roads are not very good for bike travel. Lots of construction and large pot holes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’ve not shipped a bike but have a few horses. It worked out cheaper every time. Planes, hotels, fuel and meals add up quick. Now if you need a trip...that’s a different story. Good luck with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pardon The Nudity...

    It should be for sale in California where there is a high concentration of people who have the money to pay what its really worth.

    I always wanted to do a warbird themed bike. This is so far beyond my imagination. Someone is a lucky SOB!

    I've been following along here just out of interest. My bike came with a Delkevic header. My butt dyno can't tell you a thing about it because this 07 is just so different than my 03. One day, I might need to replace it. Anyway, I decided to follow up on some things and came across this.... https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/VFR800-factory-direct-selling-motorcycle-stainless_60684155091.html?spm=a2700.7724838.2017115.450.494e5b5a5Dbphs From the pics, they appear to have a very capable factory. The page says they will work with your drawing or specs. Maybe someone has already done the leg work and is selling a system. I'm not passing judgement, just thought it might be of interest.

    VF500 as a winter hack

    Seems such a shame to subject a beaut like that to such a life.

    battery or stator or both?

    So, mine turned out to be a bad splice? The stator and r/r had been replaced by the previous owner. They both checked out fine but we started looking at a ball of electrical tape and found that the heat had melted the splices, heat shrink, and the tape into a ball. If you end up in this place, don't wrap the wires together. Just an example of how much heat they can make without a fuse blowing. May or may not have something to do with spending that whole day riding in a down pour.

    battery or stator or both?

    Pull the right side fairing. The r/r is up front on the frame before the stem. Check the connector between the r/r and the stator for signs of corrosion or heat. That is in addition to the drill with your meter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    battery or stator or both?

    Yes, testing first would be the best choice. When it comes down to working on my bike, I like to go in one time. If you haven’t already search for ‘the drill’. It will walk you through electrical system diagnostics. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
