  1. 1992 Honda ST1100 with just over 93,000 miles. Freshly cleaned, rebuilt, and rejetted carbs. Not a “seafoam in the tank” cleaning. Fully disassembled, all passages cleared and cleaned, rejetted pilots jets from #38 to #40 for better idle and off idle throttle response. Prone to failure PAIR system removed and blocked off. Prone to failure vacuum fuel shutoff valve removed. New Honda fuel filter. New fuel line from tank to the filter. New thermostat and O-ring. New O-rings on the water jacket connections inside the “V”. New Honda coolant. All hydraulics flushed and bled. New speedometer cable. New NGK spark plugs. Progressive Suspension rear shock. GIVI trunk. Decent tire tread left. HID headlights. Fresh oil and filter change. Fresh rear end oil change and greased with Honda Moly lube. Asking $2000 OBO. Come check it out. Some issues with paint, but it’s 27 years old. Starts and runs great! Located in Knoxville, TN email is best: kperham 986 at hotmail
  2. It's a misconception that the pistons can be accidentally popped out with the pads removed. If you have ever tried to extend the pistons to clean them, you will see how many times you have to push the lever to get even a small movement. If a single lever throw would move the pistons full travel the brakes would uncontrollable and would lock solid at the lightest touch. Not to mention that the pistons are longer than the available space inside the caliper. Again, if you have ever tried to rebuild the calipers you would know that it's required to split them to remove the pistons. Take it to a trusted mechanic and have the system fully bled. Even a fellow VFR rider who is experienced in their own maintenance as the linked brakes can be a bit tricky if you are used to unlinked.
  3. I scoured the forum for a set of bars for my '99 RC51 forks conversion. They came to me with clamp bolts and no bar end weights, as I recall. Take a look through this 7th Gen forum and note anyone with any type of aftermarket bars and message those people asking if they have the stockers sitting on a shelf collecting dust. That's what I did and the owner was happy to declutter the garage a little bit for no charge. Can't promise you that result, but you won't know until you ask. I believe I even put up a WTB ad, but most people skip over the classifieds unless they are looking to buy. (IMO)
  4. Hi Anonymous, Thank you for your donation of --. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  5. I have 1200 clipons mounted to SP1 forks on my 5th Gen😎 Gull Wing triples top and bottom. The 1200 clipons are taller than the 5th were, but the gull wing upper lowers them slightly below where the were.
  6. If there is an engine that is running with no issues, why take a chance on an engine that sitting gathering dust and spiderwebs just because the km number is theoretically lower. Unless you are going to strip it fully and go big bore with ported heads and different cams, etc. I don’t see that a few thousand kms is a significant difference when they are known to go 100,000+ miles(!). At 103,000 miles on mine I wouldn’t think of swapping out a full engine. It for sure needed replacing of rubber coolant hoses and gaskets. I’ve got one that’s missing the clutch cover and is rusted all to heck. I’ve got another I fully disassembled that had something corrode the front left cylinder lining. Probably had water sitting in it for years.
  7. I think we are all avoiding the very obvious here. Why remove a perfectly working “high” km engine in favor of another with “relatively” low km for no other reason than km used? It’s not brand new off the factory floor. Your current engine is showing no signs of performance degradation. Many, many engines of that vintage are running more kms without any issues. Unless your OE engine is failing, keep it!
  8. Looks like 79 is 2014-16 and 93 is ‘17+. Odd since they called all 5th and 6th gens RC46 and there were some significant differences between them! Plus both gens had updated models within each model type. Maybe because they didn’t sell ‘17+ here in USA (North America?)
  9. Sounds like overflow from the gas filler, overflow from the radiator reservoir, and probably the flapper on the air box has been disabled/removed. The vacuum hose from the flapper should be blocked off, if that’s what it is. Looking at the pics, I’d say the flapper vacuum actuator was removed from the top of the air box. Big round hole on top left of the air box lid. Totally normal, very common mod. Google search often works better than the internal search on the site. Look it up and you’ll find plenty of info on that and other modifications. Sounds like it’s fine and you just need to ride it!👍
  10. Yes, that’s what a dusty sitting engine is for! And keep the high mileage (km, sorry) one going. It’ll keep running as long as you maintain and use it. Just my opinion, but based on my own ‘99. Another thought. It’s real rare, but I’ve heard of a gear box failing in a 5th gen maybe a couple times. Clutch basket a couple times. Broken chain taking out a sprocket cover and breaking the side of the case. Oil drain bolt stripping. In other words, just keep it around for spare hard parts.
  11. I would imagine the various rings would need to heat up and get oiled to get unstuck and a true compression reading. For my money I would update or upgrade the rubber hoses and o-rings on a constant used high mileage engine rather than roll the dice on an engine sitting collecting dust and corrosion. And I did. 103,000+ miles on my ‘99. All new silicone coolant hoses and new OEM o-rings sealing the water pipes to the engine. New t’stat o-ring. Sent my injectors off to be cleaned and flow matched. New fuel filter. Etc.
  12. I never thought the 6th was a worthwhile upgrade from 5th. ABS is the only benefit. That said, the 8th is a great upgrade from 5th. I know it’s not really answering the question asked. I have had my ‘99 topped out only one time. (1 mph faster than my geared for acceleration RC51 track bike) and I can’t imagine the top speed differential between any 800 is worth considering in a purchase decision.
  13. The folks that buy his stuff really like it. The folks that buy other stuff are looking for a fancy brand name. (You know who you are...😉)
