  1. Can you please be more specific in terms of what I should do? I can change spark plugs, air filters, brake pads, etc. but when it comes to electrical issues, I don't know all that much.
  2. I've got an '02 VFR that I very seldom ride anymore because I bought a Kawasaki Ninja 1000 last year. The VFR won't start and I have reason to believe it has something to do with the starter/stop switch (part 3 in the attached diagram). I was in the process of replacing it when I got stuck on how to remove the two cables (parts 1 and 2 in the attached diagram). Does anybody know where I can find instructions on how to replace this part? What was happening is every time I pressed the starter button, I would sometimes have to press it several times before the engine started. Now, no matter how many times I press it, it won't start. Thank you.
  3. Hi Mohawk, Thank you for your donation of 25.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  4. I don't have time to read six pages of posts but when I saw the title to this thread, it immediately made me think of an incident that happened a few years ago in the midwest. A police helicopter claims to have "timed" a guy on an RC51 going over 200 mph. The RC51 was bone stock except for slip-ons. The guy on the bike insisted he was maxed out at 160 mph but the police wouldn't budge from their "calculation." The incident ignited a firestorm of responses from motorcyclists like ourselves that insisted there's no way on earth an RC51 can reach 200 mph. Absolutely no way. Even the editors of major motorcycle publications came out and said that, while going 160 mph on a public road is stupid, unless the RC51 was turbocharged (it wasn't), there's no way that bike can get even close to 200 mph. The cop said he was counting the mile markers on the highway and looking at his watch and calculated the motorcyclist's speed at over 200 mph. He insisted he was right. When the police officer was confronted with insurmountable evidence to the contrary, as expected, he refused to admit he was wrong.

    Loose Livestock!

    I'll touch base with you when I get there. I don't know how long I'll be there so no need for a house. I may be there a week, a month, or a lifetime. I'm trying very, very hard to stop relocating.

    I actually think I've been on that road. I'm relocating to Austin next week, so who knows, we might see each other riding around!
  7. I'm going by the universally accepted (and published) compression ratio. For the current CBR1000RR, it's 12.3:1. On my bike, it's 11.6:1.
  8. Your bike's compression ratio is 12:1 (which is already high). If you're serious about having some even higher compression pistons installed, as well as porting and polishing the heads, and having somebody grind you some hotter cams, you're probably going to need a full exhaust, a reflashed ECU, and intake work done as well. I seriously doubt you'll find someone (especially where you live) that has the ability to do that kind of work on a VFR1200 DCT. You may want to start looking for another bike.

    Never mind. Your profile says you've got a 6th gen. and that's a 5th gen. in the photo. I take it you borrowed it from someone.

    OK, since nobody's asked, I will. How did you get from Hawaii to Prince Edward Island on a motorcycle?
  11. Note to Seb: Not trying to hijack this thread but with your fabrication skills, you ought to consider coming up with a new headlight for the VFR1200F. It's the one part of the bike a lot of people just can't get past. Maybe you can have somebody send you their headlight so you can make a mold out of it. Once you've got something to work with, you can come up with a custom headlight design. You can even get ideas/input from members on various worldwide (e.g. British, German, etc.) VFR forums.
  12. Although I don't have the link, I remember it was an Englishman on the British (or European) VFR forum that did it. If memory serves, what made the job more difficult than he anticipated was that many connectors (e.g. electrical, cooling system, etc.) didn't match up (he still got the whole thing to work, though.) Although he spent a lot of time on the project, I don't recall him saying it cost him a fortune. Best of luck to you.
  13. I own that bike but can't answer your question because Seb did the work Maybe he'll chime in shortly and help you out. He lives in upstate New York so getting him to do job probably won't happen (I lived in Philadelphia eight years and rode up there.) I would not have attempted this mod on my own. No way.
  14. This is a '96 (Fourth Gen.) VFR750 with '03-'04 CBR600RR fairings (excluding the rear cowl -that's a Sixth Gen ['02-'09] VFR800 subframe and cowl.) You're gonna have to put a lot of work into fabbing mounting brackets because the CBR fairings aren't even close to being direct bolt-ons. Ditto for the subframe. Best of luck to you.
