  1. Listen to MaxSwell. He knows of what he speaks.
  2. Get rid of the 6th gen and buy the bike. I've owned a 5th, 6th, and 8th gen. The 8th gen. has "it all together" much better than the other two gens. You won't notice the VTEC kicking in at all, it has MUCH more lower end usable torque good for twisties and just riding around in almost any gear. It doesn't care which gear it's in at all but very high speeds. Mine has had zero problems in 17+K miles. Second reason to get it,.........we would all think you're a "bad person" if you don't.......LOL! Seriously, I like my 8th better than the 6th gen. by far. I ride hard in twisties and it's a good bike for that provided you put a good slip-on, on it. Mine has a Delkevic which is cheap but nice looking and gave it even more low end torque. Don't know what's on it from your pic. Don't be a "bad person", be a man about it and let us know. BTW, asking price is asking price. Everything is negotiable. Read the book, "Never Split the Difference" by Chris Voss. Chris is not a "bad person"......LOL!
  3. There is one for sale in the Southeast. Mine. No supply shortage!
  4. You can buy mine. Red, standard, 17K miles, good tires, perfect condition, price to be determined.
  5. Good lord! That's a lot of VFR riding. I don't think I'd want to look at it again for a while after a ride like that!
  6. Read my mind. Get the dog sitter and stay home with her. Might be more fun...... The ride is on a bad weekend for me, again.
  7. Welcome back GG. Look forward to your good habit of posting pics. You should know that there is some "talk" of banning you for coming back with the incorrect color and talk of keeping it stock. Two mistakes in one post can get you in some real trouble. That OEM can is a sinfully heavy and ugly monster. A 14" Delkevic will cure all of that for not too much money but you know that. Also improves very low end torque for those mountain twisties in Florida. No problem really and nice to see you admit your mistake of selling your first VFR (even if it's the wrong color too). I have no room to talk. Only one trip to Western NC since you left. Not enough riding is my sin so it's all in fun....though brutal, I know, LOL! Be careful out there. We need some infrastructure.
  8. Apparently, I am lucky on the EO. It sure makes a power difference in the 8th gen., just as it did on my 5th and 6th gens., when I had them. Ethanol is a scam in many ways. It isn't saving any whales and it takes more BTU's of energy to make a gallon of it than there are BTU's in the gallon. Government helping us out again.......

  11. Rode is after several weeks of just sitting. It ran good but it was a little cold so it was a quick ride. Machinery isn't meant to sit idle. Letting that happen bugs me. Put some fresh gas in it. Non-ethanol gas. If you haven't tried it, get some 87 octane E0 and see how much different it runs.
  12. Anyone ever heard of an oil filter causing a problem besides K&N? I just use OEM's and forget about it. I hope everyone knows not to use a K&N oil filter due to the nut on the end having weld failures and spreading oil under the rear wheel while underway. That could be deadly. Just say no on K&N oil filters.
  13. There is some variability going on. I recently replaced my brake (and clutch) fluid, have it on 2 and the lever stops much more than an inch from the throttle grip. Heck if I know...
