  1. Hi All. After 57,000ks and with a 1800k upcoming trip, thought I'd replace the original front pads. I've always been a fan of the EBC HH's and 9,000ks ago I replaced the rear pads with EBC FA488HH's. A few days ago I fitted two sets of EBC FA390HH's ($59.95 a set AU!) to the front, I have to say, I am very impressed with these new pads, there is just so much less effort on the brake lever required for the same amount of braking compared to the original Tokico pads. Just thought I'd pass this snippet of info on, EBC HH's are a great brake pad, so impressed I won't use anything else. YMMV. Cheers.
  2. Has anybody tried this?, does it work? Delinking vfr 800, 2001, brakes. Problem; I want to get rid of left front brake SMC and assy. (do not ask me why) I have this foolish idea, which needs your confirmation, that it can be done. Solution; Remove left front fork case/casing and replace it with another (same as existing right fork) right fork casing. Remove front left brake SMC and assy (no.06454MBG415) from the front left brake and replace it with rear brake sub assy (no. 06432MBG405). Fits perfectly. tried it. Bolt now the left front brake with rear brake sub assy to fork casing. (Have not tried this since I do not have an exstra right fork casing) Done, only problem I can see is that bolting the front fender on the right fork casing,needs spacers. Does it work/fit? As far as I have measured it should fit. Has anybody tried this?
  3. Hey all, looking for a bit of advice on replacing the rear brake rotor, attempted to replace it today and found that it seems to be mounted on the opposite side of the hub to the wheel (which I found strange) now what I need to know is has anyone actually changed one and if so how is the hub removed and is it a massive job to do
  4. I just picked up a 1998 VFR800 two weeks ago and today the brakes virtually locked up on me as I was pulling into my drive after a long hot ride. I say virtually as I was able to use the motor to muscle the bike up the drive but the brakes were so tight I could not push the bike in any direction without engine power. (At this point I am realizing that I should have tried to get it on the center stand so I could tell if it was one wheel or both, duh!) As they cooled they gradually released a bit. I had noticed on earlier rides a little dragging after a ride but assumed that was normal as I have had the same feeling with other bikes, and today it was way worse. I have the mechanical sense of a 9 year old girl so any help or advice would be much appreciated!
  5. Hi VFR owners and enthusiasts, will you please help me with my dilemma? I saved up some money to put into my VFR (Fi 01) and I have bought a few upgrades for it (future birthday gifts, you know). I wanted bars and stuff that goes along with it 😀 so I got : -LSL superbike handlebars conversion kit (+some bar weights to go with them...I want to keep the stock ones in case I want to return to original form) -Fren Tubo custom braided brake line kit (longer to be able to route them "stock" way even with higher bars) -New steering head bearings ("tapered" set from Tourmax to rid me of old sticky "balls" I've got...😁No pun intended, when I first wrote this) -New (read longer) throttle cables (from 1100 PanEuropean) to keep the cable routing original -And finally new chain and sprockets I've got several questions for people who have done similar mods or just have more experience than me, please. I can do the handlebar conversion by myself BUT I cannot do the other "supporting" mods because I lack tools and experience with them (riveter for the chain and I definetely cannot bleed empty brake lines without tools or set the bearings properly without messing up) 1) In which order should I tackle the mods? All at once, or in small portions? 2) If I give this job to a mechanic, how much should I expect to pay? (maybe I could work with him and help him? ) 3) Clutch hose was promised by supplier of the LSL kit but none arrived, when I contacted him he said it is a mistake on his web (confirmed by LSL that they do not supply the lines)... I want to do the mods with the stock line which should be possible... If I have to change the line, I will go with braided line as it has to be cheaper than OEM Honda line which costs more than 100$ here. The question is: "Are there any differences between hydraulic clutch line and brake lines/ fittings? Which fluid is used? My guess is it is hydraulic but haven't checked the manual yet. 4) Should I watch out for some specific problems?/ Should the mechanic be prepared for something? He services my friends Varadero (also linked brakes, similar year of manufacture) which he rebuild after a nasty crash from bottom up and he knows his stuff so I trust him but still... VFRs have their specific needs 5) I own the bike for a short time so I don't know much about previous service history. Should I clean the calipers even though they work fine just because the brake lines will be apart? I will definetly remember something right after I post this so thank you in advance for your help and please have patience with me. Martin
  6. Hi. I've got 2004 sixth gen vfr and have issue about brakes. Front brakes gives wobbly feel when i press it but don't have that problem with linked back brake. i've cleaned sockets, pistons and checked pads they were all fine. Im starting to think one of the discs is bent. I might give a shot to bend it back cause in worst case scenario i need to replace it anyways. The question is do i need to replace both front discs or can i just switch one? Does having one new and one old disc affect handling in any major ways?
  7. Hi everyone, Does someone know if the front brake calipers from a 3rd Gen 1992 vfr are completely identical to those of a 4th gen 1996 bike? Clearly the discs are very much different but I have the feeling that the calipers are identical. The brake pads for both bikes are the same but I need to know 100% about those calipers. Will be grateful if someone tells me with certainty if I'm right! Greetings, Ivan
  8. Looking for some information please. I have just been arranging for a new set of tyres for my 8th gen. While shopping around some people have told me that the caliper bolts are stretch bolts and need to be replaced when they are dropped to get the wheels out while others have not mentioned it at all. Has anyone else had the same mixed message? Thanks all

    Ebc Brake Pads For 7Th Gen

    So as my stock brake pads got pretty worn out I decided to replace them with some aftermarket ones. I got three packs of EBC brake pads, one for rear and two for the front calipers. After taking the stock rear pads out I noticed that the metal shape supporting the pad looks different than stocks, and the bracket piece that goes over the whole assembly fits a little awkward. Still it seemed to fit in the caliper just fine, that was until I tried to put the retainer pin back in. Turns out the loops on the EBC pads are too low so they hit the top of caliper casing and won’t align with the pin holes... After considering all my options I filed the excess metal [it was just a few millimeters so it didn’t compromise the structure of the pad in any way] and got it to fit, and surprisingly work pretty well as well. Then I moved to the front calipers and the real problem surfaced. Once I got the stock pads out and was about to put the new ones in I noticed that the two small pad pieces were not mirrored, instead they were the same. I got confused for a second thinking I was looking at it wrong or something but no, small pads from ABC actually came both same sided. I than opened the second pack of pads I had and they were the same... So basically someone in EBC made the design for those pads based of Honda manual but never QA'd his work or even bother fitting them to a bike to see if they work. I emailed the company to see if they reply, if not Ill send them back to the seller I got them from over eBay and get my money back, than get new stocks. Funniest thing of all was the big logo on the pad pack saying "support America, made in America!", I'm sure to look for Japanese parts next time... I have a photo of how do they look like included, didn’t take one of rear set as I didn’t think about it at the time.
