  1. Wish Honda would bring it to the US!
  2. Thanks for posting this.....it's a good reminder that mine could stand a "round 3" update/refurb....
  3. Wow...pretty dang impressive, considering how it started out....
  4. I had wondered what happened to your museum piece 4th gen you got last year, beautiful bike....... ......I miss mine.....
  5. VFRW has been definately slowing to a trickle, very few of us check it and post anymore. I look at it out of habit....
  6. CycleTerminal is my favorite goto vendor for things electrical for motorcycles.....
  7. Why not order OEM parts from one of the major large suppliers?...I usually pull up several tabs and look at all of them at once..... RonAyers Partzilla.com ProCaliber Rockymountainatvmc.com Partsfish Throw in favorite......
  8. I believe I just shortened it to OEM length, it functions normally....
  9. I did the same....used a new RC51 rear master and hacksawed the threaded rod down to length.....
  10. It's been over a year since I worked with them, but I had a stator rewound at Custom Rewind out of Birmingham Alabama. I don't know if they are still in business, but Gary the owner has MS and can't talk that well and his daughter does the communication. Works by phone call only. BTW the stator works out fine, and I got extra long leads to add the Furakawa connector direct......no intermediate connector or solder. Hey @ducnut, didn't you recently live around Chicago ?
  11. Whoa welcome back.....quite awesome stuff going on keep at it! We wanna see you finish and ride it.......motivation enough? I love bike build threads
  12. I was in a simular situation on my Valkyrie front brake rebuild. The thing would not bleed solid....forwards, backwards whatever. Turns out a caliper clip spring fell out of its slot, (new pads) and I was just working against its spring force......until I discovered it. (Duh!) Now it's far better than stock.....
  13. I won't claim the latter starter motor will work, but Honda parts over and over and over use the same parts multiple years, and list the part N/A for the older bike, while continuing to use the very same part on the later years.....Very annoying Mother Honda!!
  14. I have also ordered fasteners from ProBolt time to time, and I just marvel at how excellent the parts are, like fine jewelry.....when the application demands it, definitely a goto vendor.
  15. Send a PM to HispanicSlammer....he is owner of the site and can help you out...
  16. Never liked the idea of a resettable circuit breaker......I'm running a 40amp Metripack 630 fuse holder, I purchased from CycleTerminal. Then also I prefer to do my own harness work and use marine grade wiring....source....Del City.....another good electrics company. (Jeez, dont use any wire from AutoZone)
  17. Cogs.....I did get it from Roadstercycle.......connectors and R/R only since I do my own harness work....looks like winter 2017.......I have never had any real correspondence with Jack..... Possibly if you wanted to end run around Jack, you could find out where the FH020AA is used on production bikes (I think Yamaha and Suzukis) and order from RonAyers or Partzilla. The Furakawa connectors are available from CycleTerminal as well as the Metripack 630 fuse holders.. Found at site called gummycarbs..... Saying 2013-2015 CBR500R uses the FH020AA and FJR1300 2015+ also ....... RonAyers lists the CBR part at $127........ FJR part at $197.....
  18. Mostly the adapter plates are for 6th gens, although it could be used as a heat sink for 5th gens...... I have traded notes with Cogswell on the 847, and left me head scratching with the voltage behavior totally weird...... Other charging notes........I changed out my OEM stator for a rewind, by Custom Rewind last November......it didn't need it, but I wanted to see waht it was like...sometimes I do stuff just to satisfy curiosity... The stator wires have no connector except directly to the R/R.......no solder, crimp or anything. I have a few good rides on it, and as a comparison, roughly OEM range was range was 13.7 to 14.4 volts. (I have a voltmeter mounted up front by the tank bolts) I am finding the rewind stator range more like 13.9 to 14.7....does it mean anything....dunno, I won't claim it.... More fodder......so before the SH847 came to be, the FH020AA was the go to... and lots of guys installed it...including me..... I hadn't heard of any problems with it.....and I'm probly on 5years on mine....maybe it's still the better choice.....
  19. ^^^^ Still like the creativity of the above, I'm gonna try that next time I need the front end in the air....
  20. But new from Honda 6th gen.....$141.00? https://www.ronayers.com/oemparts/a/hon/5053f5b1f870021c54be7bbc/water-pump
