  1. Last I heard, more buyers were needed to make the 8g system happen.
  2. Side note @Mohawk, I used to make the titanium (2, 4, & 6 bend channel) floor supports for the 747. Also exterior door corners, interior thresholds, drip rails and a slew of clips & brackets for 747/777/787.
  3. I have (2) final sets left. There will be no more, at least not of this design. Bright (bare milled) or brushed finish, $158 shipped in the US or $150 + actual shipping worldwide
  4. I fabricated them from scratch, from aluminum stock.
  5. I'm running a billet Brembo 16x16 clutch master on my 4g streetfighter with OEM slave. The difference from stock is amazing, in terms of ease of pull, feedback, and modulation. I have a RCS16 master and 38mm Oberon slave for my 6g, but have yet to install them and get miles in. I've got a TSW clutch slave here if somebody wants to try it. PM me for details.
  6. Fortunately, that is a luxury afforded you by your geographic location. Crime rate with regard to motorcycle theft (and therefore also insurance policy cost) is exponentially higher in Arizona than in Kansas. OP's best bet is actually to secure indoor storage where the bike is out of sight and preferably behind locked doors.
  7. To be fair, I've seen your watch band size and IIRC your header could also wear your watch...
  8. Nice job working through the issues. Don't worry about what other ppl think. You're still helping somebody... I bet everyone that bought a header is studying your thread. Also, this is still more of a custom set than it is production, so there will be some variation from part to part and if everyone assumes all parts are 100% the same then there will be these little disagreements about what fits and what doesn't. So just keep doing what you're doing. One other note, IMO you'd be better served by a piece of heat shielding attached to the inside of the fairing vs wrapping a section of the header. Install it with a good contact cement and it should last the life of the bike.
  9. Would be kinda neat to park alongside this one...
  10. Sorry to hear about the trouble with the shop, that sucks. That seems to be a part I could produce. If a solution isn't found by the time I get my 8th gen headers on my bike, I'll be able to offer whatever part I make for myself to those that still need them.
  11. If the starter cranks then your neutral switch circuit is intact. I haven't looked at the diagram yet, but the issue seems to simulate the kill switch being in the off position. Barring that simple solution, I'd take a closer look at all of your ground points to make sure they are clean and securely connected.
  12. There aren't many of us, I kinda planted that seed... Happy to, will let you know as the development progresses. I plan to add not just a 3rd coolant radiator, but also a larger relocated engine oil cooler and a cooler for the SC oil. Cheaper, likely yes, but absolutely harder to package and will only spool quickly if you use one very small turbo or one turbo for each bank. Turbos need to be placed as close as possible to the exhaust ports and obviously this is an issue with a V4. Packaging 1 in a fully faired VFR would be very challenging and twins you can pretty much forget about unless you go with a wild streetfighter theme. I concur. Not just questionable merges, but a not-so-well-flowing assortment of seam welded steel stampings which have replacing actual tubing. My hope is that the new header is NOT a duplication of these merges, but rather mostly the same as the 5/6 with the exception of the front downtubes, and obviously any minor fit changes needed to be usable on the 8th gen bike.
  13. 6th would be ideal, but fit to a 5th would suffice for my purposes, which is to run a lower front rad on my Torocharged 6th gen.
  14. I understand that I might be asking a lot here... but is there a chance of doing a test fit of the new 8th gen header prototype on a 6th gen before they go into production?
  15. We're talking about soaking the fully disassembled bodies, which is exactly the opposite of a lazy clean...
  16. I stripped all the plastic and rubber off the bodies, so no issues with the soak.
  17. Go to NAPA, pick up a length of bulk fuel hose and a brass 90deg elbow of the correct size for said hose. SAE equivalent will be 1/4" or 5/16" for 6mm or 8mm hose, respectively. Couple extra hose clamps and you'll be good to go.
  18. Aftermarket VFR750 (90-97) radiator with custom brackets, on a 99 VFR800. Coupled with a larger aftermarket (air) oil cooler. No idea if it'll fit under fairings, of course...
