In My Garage:

  1. Hi guys,I have an opportunity to buy a. sweet looking gal,2006 sixth gen sweetheart seen below,but shes about to clock over the 100,000ks mark. Is she going to start costing me $$ as things wear out? What wears out,and roughly when?? Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated. Bikeless at the moment,last ride was this CBR600F4 pictured. Cheers guys. Oh,Im in Australia,hot Qld climate.
  2. 2004 6th Gen Long story short: Bike stolen. sat for a year. replaced clutch slave gasket. flushed, replaced and bled DOT 4. Rides and operates fine until about 15mins of highway riding and then the clutch starts to slip. I drop a gear to accelerate and the engine revs with no power being put down. Is it time for a new clutch? and why does it just suddenly start happening after its all warm and toasty? i didnt want to pop it all open without consulting the oracle first. thanks in advance.
  3. Version 1.0


    This is the same manual that was available here on VFRD. I noticed it was missing from the downloads section and wanted to replace it. Optimized the file size so that it is only 65 MB. Ran OCR text recognition to enable text searches on the entire book.
  4. View File Scan of 6th Gen Grabrail Spacer for 3D Printing This is a two part file for a hard to find part for the OEM luggage kit of a 6th Gen VFR. The official Honda part numbers are, 08L41-MCW-80012 and 08L41-MCW-800123. The file provided is a 3D scan of an original piece and duplicated/mirrored so a left and right can be created. The printer I contracted with used an elastomer plastic that is very flexible and a bit soft which is required otherwise the piece won't seat and mold correctly.

  6. Or, My New 2007 VFR800A! Of course I wanted a 25th R/W/B but this red (what color is it called?) was so clean with low miles I didn’t want to pass it up. All the 25th’s were thousands of miles away, however my new ride was less than a hundred miles to go pick up. Purchased from Omni Powersports in Palm, PA, nice people and easy to transact with. The title showed first titled in 2009, first owner logged about 400mi, then 2011 second owner 3000mi, then 2016 the last owner just about 1100mi. Now mine with 4500mi, all stock except a fender eliminator (Competition Werkes?) and new tires (Battlax BT023R). In just a few days I’ve put a few hundred miles on and basically left wondering Why didn’t I get one of these before!? I may be new to VFR’s, but not new to motorcycling and not new to sport riding, roadracing, mx, woods riding, et cetera. My last MC was (still have it, hey now it’s for sale!) a 2006 Suzuki SV650 cafe/street fighter/backroad twisty tool that I loved building and tweaking on but somehow lost interest in because it couldn’t do the long miles and left me sore from the clip ons and seating position. So here’s to a new start and a new forum, and maybe some touring, and definitely some tweaking. On to the pictures! A new Shoei RF1200 has replaced my old Suomy Spec1R in the pictures, and some new relaxed riding gear is on order to replace my two piece AStars leathers. I won’t bore you with the suspension set up (that was first), but I already have some things on order and plan to update here as I go. RAM mount, power supply, cruise control, are first things first.
  7. From the album: Urbanes VFR Shots

    After a 3 month hiatus I finally got back to the VFR's headlight modifications. Got both Demon Eyes, Angel Eyes, and housings mounted up. Just need to nut and bolt mount the other projector and I'll be able to seal these up for sanding and clear coating. Pic #2 shows how worn out the headlights are. Store your damned motorcycles inside, or at least under a cover

  9. Hi all and welcome to my blog hope you all enjoy..... So its been 12 years since owning a motorcycle and now I have a well used and reasonable well looked after 2005 Pearl Heron Blue VFR800. I've only test ridden a few liter sport bikes once I got off my provisional license way back when but this is my first time owning something other then a 250cc. You'll have to forgive the no doubt sometimes novice remarks and just remember I'm just a fellow enthusiast not a MotoGP rider . After close to a week and close enough to 200klms under my belt on it I've had time to notice things in some more detail. I can not nor am complaining with a bike that cost $3200 Aussie bucks that is in this condition but there are thing that need to change at some point and thing I may need to get use too, especially considering I've been out of the saddle for so long. For the very first photos i took of her please check out my post "G'day from Perth" in the welcome section, there are a couple of camera phone photos in there. For the riding part the first thing that got my attention is the grips, they feel a little thin to me and after about an hour I seemed to be getting a bit of vibration through the bars but it only effected my right hand really. My left leg was feeling a bit cramped at around the hour mark as well. Throttle transitions from off/on at lower revs seems to be a bit of a dice roll in regards to how smooth it will be. Need to look at the clutch take-up/friction point as it feels very late and embarrassingly i maybe riding it a little at take off ( Its been a long time...) Finally the older orange/amber indicators annoy me only because I've seen the updated ones from the 06/07 on-wards models and the pair valve is starting to grate me a little hearing in open and close. I am kind of happy about the noise/note from the rider point of view with the bike but standing next to it the factory system doesn't do the V4 justice. Loving the noise (although muted some what) especially when VTEC kicks in, also finding the bike surprisingly easy to ride. I like the combined braking and the stability of the bike in general, to me its like a mirror in that if you ride lazy it will feel a little on the big/heavy side like it is lazy bike it self but once you start to apply force in your riding it starts to shrink under you and come alive. My very limit previous experience/memory's are that even the liter sport bikes I test rode and a couple of mates 600s didn't feel so broad in there character. After the couple of rides I've had now i'm super glad to be back on a bike, what i was missing in getting nods and waves from friendly motorcyclists and really happy to get the model I've wanted for quite sometime. Below is a photo I took parked at Mosman Park on Curtin avenue earlier this afternoon, Indian Ocean in the back ground. It was a beautiful day 26*c nothing but blue skies, 64% Humidity and a cool breeze coming straight of the Indian Ocean. (photo was on the phone..) Cheers.
  10. From the album: Texas Rides

    My wife kept hitting me in the shoulder, reminding me to take some pictures of the Texas Bluebonnets on the way home from Johnson City on Hwy 71. Well we stopped AND I got the pictures! Ain't she pretty!! P.S. I did get some shots of me and the wife in them Bluebonnets too but didn't think you wanted to see those....
  11. Hi there Guys, Looking to get into the nitty gritty with the suspension on my 2004 VFR800. I mostly ride on the street (rough Canadian roads) with 1 -2 track days a year. Due to my size and weight (5'8" and 135lbs) I find that the bike is actually over-sprung in the rear and takes alot of commanding to turn at low speeds. I also wanted to add some more adjustability to the front forks as they seem under valved( harsh) So far I have purchased a set of F4 or F4i forks (cannot tell due to being very similar but could be .66kg or .77 kg springs) along with a very good condition set of 4 pot calipers. These will need to be re-sprung! but I'm unsure as the best way to do the calculations for the increase, (race-tech shows vfr800 with my weight should be .86 kg springs, but when using vfr weight on the CBR600F4i calculator it recommends .95 kg springs( seems too stiff) If the .86 is the correct calculation is it possible to use the VFR800 springs in the F4 forks? (using the preload spacer to accommodate for slight length variations) Also Any recommendations about Valves? Racetech? Ohlins? DIY??( I have herd of polishing the pistons and making your own stacks but dont know the science) I would also contemplate sending the valves to DM for upgrade( forks are currently disassembled) My next questions relate to the rear shock, My expectations is that the F4i rear shock will also be the replacement for the VFR stocker. Are there any higher performance shocks that could be fitted the the VFR? 600RR 1000RR GSXR1000? or do all these newer designs have fitment issues? If i am to use the F4 rear shock as the best inexpensive starting point Again what is the best way to calculate spring rate, some results from Racetech show the stock 14.3 kg unit as acceptable for my weight, other times it says its too much????? Once a spring is chosen, what should be done for valves? Racetech?, diy?, send to DM? Open to any suggestions or ideas to improve the ride and performance! Thanks in Advanced!
  12. I made one of these for one of my project bikes and it turned out so well, I thought I might offer them here to other VFR folks. By installing this part, you combine an aesthetic wheel plug which nicely dresses up the wheel face, with a Delrin slider on the hub side which serves to protect the expensive and sometimes difficult to replace hub nut and hub. Earlier today I made a second set for my VTEC using black Delrin and aluminum, for the sake of taking pictures and possibly gaining interest in a production run. Production parts would likely see the wheel plug become flush or almost flush with the wheel surface, and available bare or with a clear, silver, or black VFR logo decal. Hub sliders would be available in black or white, or special order blue. I'm wondering just how many folks here would be interested in a product like this?? Price would likely be in the $130-160 range. Here are some photos, please excuse the state of my horribly neglected VFR! I am also working on fork sliders of similar design and coloring.
