  1. 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.
  2. Hi, I have a Shindengen SH847 RR (the series MOSFET type). It is larger in all dimensions than the stock RR and the mounting holes are 100mm apart compared to the stock 80mm. The stock RR is in a good location but the new SH847 is certainly not a drop-in to the stocl location. Has anyone fitted one to a 6th Gen VFR? Any mounting suggestions?

    Engine cutting out randomly

    My '02 nearly left me stranded yesterday coming back from work. I was riding in the city at moderate speed when engine cut off completely without warning. I pulled over by the curb, put her back in neutral and tried to restart: the starter would crank but the engine wouldn't start at first. That's when I noticed the ABS light was flashing. I was about to call a tow truck when I tried to start again and this time it did. I rode for about 5 minutes before it cut off again. I noticed the fuel injection warning light coming on, but it went away after riding for a bit. So I managed to start again and then rode for about 10-15 minutes before it happened one last time (about 5 blocks from home), then I made it home. I'm obviously going to take it to a mechanic early next week, but just wondering if any others have had a similar problem, and what was the issue. Except for the ABS light flashing, all other conditions seemed normal: Engine temperature, oil / coolant levels, etc. The bike is an '02 with just a bit over 67,000 km on the clock. According to the maintenance log I keep (and the service manual) my spark plugs should still be good for another 15,000 km (I replaced them all 20,000 km ago). The only maintenance I've skipped is the second valve clearance check (7,000 km overdue) but only because it's a very expensive job to get done. For everything else I've followed the service manual like gospel. If you have any idea what this could be, let me know! EDIT: Forgot to mention that this happened over a 20-ish km commute.
  4. Hey there. Currently reassembling my bike again after replacing the shock with a DMr-massaged unit last year, which worked great until I mis-routed the remote preload adjuster hose. It wore through and leaked its oil out the back of the bike, which turned me into a low-rider but could have been worse. Trying not to make the same mistake twice. So, thanks in advance for posting, linking, or PMing any pics of how the OEM preload adjuster hose is routed. I did look at the manual, and there's a mostly unhelpful illustration. I am at the point of re-installing the rear fender and want to confirm what the hose is under/above/around. Cheers. -c92
  5. Hi All, My first post, but you’ve all been very helpful beforehand with past post etc. However, I have just changed both rear tail lights on my 6th gen. Both come in with ignition, but when I apply the brakes the top one goes out and the lower one gets brighter. I assumed that both would stay on and get brighter? Can you have a look at the attached video and let me know; 1. Is that right? 2. If not, how do I rectify? Many Thanks! 3918E838-9200-4CE4-8861-4DEB0DC0B69B.MOV

    VFR Headlight upgrades

    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
  7. Hi. So I am new too this group and this is my first post. Just wanted to tell you guys my experience with using manual cam chain tensioners. Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated. It all began when after riding my bike and getting it up to temp I stopped at a friends house and noticed a rattling from my engine. I thought maybe my chain was loose but I was not moving. After doing some research I found this site and quickly found out it was most likely may cam chain tensioner/s. I decided to go with the manual ones because the OEM ones tend to be faulty some times and i wanted to ensure my engine last for as long as financially possible. I was going to go with APE tensioners but switched over to PSR (Powerstands Racing) because they were in stock at MotoSport, a place I trust way more than Ebay. I was very impressed with the qualilty of this item and the effort taken to ensure top notch perfomance. It as neatly packaged and included the needed gasket, a key chain, and a PSR sticker. To set the stage for my endeavor I was working with a decent selection of tools and knowledge from past experiences with dirtbikes and what not. My garage not being the warmest place during New Engllands god awful winters was a steaming 33 degrees and my tools were about -4 according to my internal hand thermostat. The removal of the OEM ccts had to be the hardest part. It required removing the tank and airbox. I did not have enough time or knowledge to rip apart the throttle bodies just to get to the front one. With some finesse and muscle I was able to remove the front tensioner. After removal the PSR one was very easy to install and took minimal time. The adjustment bolt has a 14mm head and the mounting bolts are 10mm. After I installed it I torqued to the required hand tight spec and moved to the rear. The rear was 100x easier than the front, but by this time it was 12 am and I had work the following day. But I kept on cooking because I knew if I did not finish tonight I would never get it done till spring. After I installed both cct's with the help of a buddy and some monster it was time to adjust them. I had my buddy adjust the front tensioner as I adjusted the rear. Following other posts we loosened until cam chain noise and then tightened until noise went away but no further. In total it took me about 11 hours to change all my fluids and do the ccts. Minus a few breaks and mental cool downs. Plus my buddy didn't show up till 11:30. By 1 am ol' Smokey was back up and running with no cam chain noise just the sewing machine exhaust note. If you read up until this point I would like to just say Thank You and if you see anywhere I should improve or anything you think I did wrong please let me know down below. Thanks for reading and have a VFRful day.

    The cold light of day.

    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.
  11. 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....
  12. 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!
  13. 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.

  23. SOoo excited. Finally got the Rapid Bike Race module and harness. I'm putting it in today and will report back with some pics during progress. This post will be in extreme lay terms so those more technical and guru like may want to move on to something more stimulating.. Just arrived! Serious stuff.. cant wait to see what's inside! If there's any latest tips and tricks or hints for installation or first ride please let me know. I've already read through the 20 plus pages on the group buy and some of Yaman/Candy stuff but it's been awhile. So I'm off.

    6Th Gen 120/60 Front Tire?

    Hi there! Has anyone tried a 120/60 front tire (instead if the stock 120/70)? I ride on Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interacts. I love the swoopy feel the rounded-profile tyres give me, however, I'd like the bike to swoop a little more quickly. My last three bikes (R6, F2, FZR 600) all had Metzeler (M3 or Racetec) 120/60 front tyres on them and cornered wonderfully. My idea is that the /60 profile will make the bike more flickable than the /70 series tyre because the shorter tyre will slightly alter the steering geometery making the front end feel lighter; thus, swooping more quicker or feeling lighter if you will. Does anyone have some words of wisdom about this subject matter? Smiles, ~e
