  1. The VFR was a street legal 2001 without Dual CBS and with a GPR exhaust and metal braided tubes - nothing more according to the poster. Bridgestone BT 016 PRO tires. Almost 54,000km on the clock. Proves the point that the rider's skills are more important than all the power mods in the world. I am not sure what that momentary screech is at about 4'.20''
  2. Hey there,Blargh, so I am looking for a good home for my 98 VFR 800. For me, it is one of the most versatile motorcycles I've ridden and I will be sad to see it go. I've ridden it across country, commuted to work, and most recently learned a ton on the track with STT! Though I need to make room in the garage and get some $ for more track days!Asking: $2,250, I can bring it to Autobahn and Blackhawk tracks in July. If you're like me, you immediately go look up these estimates of value. Kelly Blue Book Value ($2,500), NadaGuide Value ($2,310) Keep in mind these don't include upgrades, or the extras with this bike.INFO AND NUGGETS: 27,619 Miles 1998 Honda VFR 800 Braided Brake Lines, Micron Exhaust, Power Commander, Pitbull single swing arm stand (shown in photos holding up bike) Givi Luggage box + mount, Original street stuff: mirrors, headlamps, center stand, turn-signals and rear tail light Clean Title Fancy plastic zip-ties to hold some of the plastics. Which are gold to track-day rides, but if this offends, suspect new hardware could be an easy fix. While making it track ready I did cut off the license plate holder on the underlying rear fender. (doh!) I thought It take seconds off my lap times in the novice group... ‍🤓 Sadly it didn't, but it does look cooler. Just may be harder to affix a license plate, but surely it could be done. STUFF I'VE DONE WITHIN LAST YEAR 2x Oil Changes, New front brake pads, New rectifier/regular and stator. Photo gallery: Has it ever been down? While riding.. no, while parked yes. I was a tired idiot at the end of a track day, didn't put the bike fully back on the side stand correctly. it tipped over and created the damage shown in the photos. Could you take the stickers off? Yes, happy to take off any stickers. For sure will take off 98, others by request.Can it be made street legal again? Yes! I've kept all the parts I've taken off, sans the license plate holder mentioned above. It will take some work, though it can be done with some elbow grease and patience. Looking for more photos, FAQ and images. I created a custom info page just for it on my website. https://98vfr800.mavenseed.com/p/1998-honda-vfr-800-for-sale Contact Wes Burke, wes@cgcookie.com or PM here.
  3. What is voltage that I should be getting to the ECM? Coming out of the 30 Amp Main fuse A, I am getting 12+ volts at the red wire, but only 0.50 volts at both the Green/Red and Yellow/Red wires.
  4. Hi VFRD, I have a question regarding the linked brakes (no, I will not de-link). I have ridden the VFR after winter pause and I noticed something. If I apply the front brake first, than the rear brake and let go of the front... The rear brake lever falls down by a few centimeters as if there was not enough brake fluid. Normally I would not ask but I don't remember this happening before winter and the bike just had a fluid change. It is either a bad fluid change or my bad memory. The latter being slightly more possible. So can you please go out and try this on your 5th gen? PS: My thoughts are that this should happen because of how the secondary brake cylinder works but I need it confirmed.... You know... I sort of don't want to crash...
  5. Hi! Name is Cale. For sale I have a 3rd owner, has roughly 34,000 miles. Purchased it with 20,000. Always maintained, in fantastic condition. This bike has been nothing be great to me. Multiple trips from central indiana to Smokey Mtns, Ridden the full Blue Ridge Parkway on her as well. Wanting to get into track days and the VFR just isn't for it 😕. Looking to sell or trade for 600cc or daytona/Speed/street triple, dropped/lowsided is OK! Contact me on here or via text 765-432-0602. **Can send more photos if needed! Milage will continue to increase slightly as I can't keep myself off of it when the weather begins to get warmer. $3000 OBO! Add-ons: - Two Bros. Slip on (have stock muffler as well - TPMS - Power Commander 3 - HELI bars (stock bars are installed currently) - VFRness (haven't needed to install it) - new brake pads (EBC) **small scratch pictured that was attempted to color match by the 1st owner is the biggest flaw
  6. Hi guys, My VFR has been perfect so far but today it left me stranded for the first time. Situation: I have the VFRness installed. 13.4V at idle is my charging current. I have done about 150kms after winter break. (trouble free). Today I washed the VFR and some symptoms appeared. 1) When I turned the blinker on speedo and tach died for a second (dead while the bulb of blinker was on for the first time) 2) Speedo and tach dead when I turned the blinker on every time the bulb turned on. 3) Speedo and tach dead every time I pressed brakes. - I stopped at the side of the road. VFR refused to start again. Pump primed but starter didn't move after the button press. After I pressed the starter button pump primed again as if I turned the ignition on and off. 4) My friend came to rescue me with a new battery. (12V-12Ah insted of 12V-10ah) bike started right away and finished the 12 km journey home without issues (lights were off). When I came home I tried blinkers again, no issues. New battery had 12,4 V (engine off), 13,1V at 1500 rpm The old battery had 11.6V and is now charging. My questions are: Why? What happened? Is there an issue with Reg/Rec? (it is charging now so how can that be?) Could it be water from the washing? Thanks!

    Some of these I pulled from the Power Commander site. For the files that are corrupt on that site I searched the net and found the missing files on some old plain .html personal blogs such as: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/stu.tyrrell/PowerCommanderMaps.htm Note that some of the PCII files have modified ignition. Make sure and critically analyze any map before implementing it! I have nothing to do with these maps except that I searched for them and posted them here. - Knight

  22. 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.

    Ever try tracing a wire on the black and white diagram and lose your place causing you to start over again? Or maybe colors make the miserable job of tracing an electrical fault more fun? If you hate colors or usefulness, this is not for you. Some files are very large and may require significant amounts of RAM/computing power to view. IDK how much power is not enough, all my rigs are pretty new. Zip file contains 3 images: VFR Wiring Layers hires.png - very high resolution, colorized version of the wiring diagram from the 5th gen service manual. The filename lies, there are no layers in this file. VFR Wiring Layers hires.xcf - very high resolution, colorized.... Same as above, except has the wiring in "layers" so that you can hide parts of colorized wiring overlay that you are not interested in. Can open with GIMP (google it, the software is free for Linux or Windows, but may be difficult for casual users), IDK if Paint.net can handle layers either. VFR Wiring Layers hires.psd - same as above, photoshop format. Download the newest version if you want a print-ready file. The printable file doesn't have the layer functionality of the other files, but is tweaked and sized for 11x17 reproduction. If you don't intend to have the file printed, the 1.5 version has all the same functionality of the 1.51 version.
