  1. It'll just bolt right on aways trips me up, even with the smallest tasks. Of course, these little issues pose no problem to you. I'd love to hear your what you have to say about the SP1 a couple years down the road. And I bet I'm not alone.
  2. Thanks Miguel, I was sure it was possible but didn't think to try that option.
  3. I seem to recall that it used to be possible to add a photo from an album to a post, and there was an icon on the tool bar to do so. Tonight I tried the Insert other Media ---> Insert image from URL button but no go.
  4. A very pleasant few days of late tempted me to reinsure my VTec this afternoon. Met with some friends to view a video of their ride last summer. Stopped for a portrait at Beacon Hill Park, looking across Juan de Fuca Straight to Port Angeles, Wash., and the mountains of Olympic National Park. The 90 minute ferry ride there from my home in Victoria is very familiar as it makes the first step of almost every summer trip.
  5. This and many other questions may be found in the service manual - conveniently available in pdf form from VFRD's Downloads section. But to answer your question, it appears to be located under the right-side fairing, just ahead of radiator - page 19-10 of the service manual.
  6. Haven't camped at Sonoma, we stayed in Novato, about 10 miles west of the track. Motel prices there, or anywhere along Hwy-101, are no picnic. Vallejo has more affordable rates, leastwise according to Google (search for Vallejo, Cal accommodations for example). Have no idea how pleasant or otherwise it isa as a community. I'll note that après-ski aspect of attending the races is far better in Monterey. Certainly nothing along the lines of Cannery Row on Saturday night. Didn't see anything at MotoAmerica's site in that regard.
  7. The wheel colour in your photo has me reconsidering what to do the next time I repaint my VTec's wheels. It reminds me of the wheel colour on my '91 VFR750.
  8. I'm with FJ - why black? Which of the two VFRs below looks better? I admit that keeping white wheels clean is a pain. So, paint 'em silver, grey, gold, or any colour other than black. Black makes it near impossible to appreciate the shape of the wheel. Save money and just let 'em stay dirty 😉
  9. I tried other solutions but find the best for me is the Go Cruise-style throttle lock: https://www.twistedthrottle.ca/go-cruise-2-throttle-device-universal-auminum-black (probably even cheaper forms a U.S. vendor) I had the composite version for years but now have the adjustable aluminum one. It is far cheaper than a Throttlemeister, and easier to use. Heres what it looks like on my 6th gen
  10. I'm not sure why both feet are required. Once stopped, just switch to the right foot down.
  11. Speaking of the which, today at SuperbikePlanet there is this nice piece about the history of the FWS100
  12. Well, the answer to this and many other questions may be found in the service manuals. Conveniently, pdfs are available right here on VFRD - goto Browse--> Downloads to get your copy. Btw, according to Honda, both 6th & 8th Gen use a 14 mm master cylinder at the front, but different sizes on the rear. JZH may be able to verify these figures.
  13. Looks good. Did you need/chose to reroute any cables/hoses?
  14. You could try FortNine, they don't list oem Honda but carry several aftermarket brands. Fwiw, when my dealer here in Victoria replaced mine back in 2015 the stator cost $327.44 and the gasket another $14.75.
