  1. Whats the verdict on removing combined braking system. I'm fabricating a new stainless lobster back exhaust system that will have undertail mufflers and I'm tight for space at the rear end. I have thought about removing the terrible combined rear brake system and replacing with independent. It would seam that if I was to do this now it would make it alot easier to route new exhaust. Any feedback would be much appreciated
  2. Had to sell my beautiful 5th Gen recently and found the box of rare parts I never had time to instal. The big ticket items are namely rare Corbin seat (removable passenger backrest), DMr fork kit, and brake de-link kit. None of these were inexpensive, so my loss is your gain.CORBIN LADY GUNFIGHTER SEAT -- SOLD!!! -- This kit was originally $700 which is hard to believe. The leather saddle works in conjunction with the Honda seat cowl for a cool solo look or remove the seat cowl and install the handrails for two up sport touring. With the cowl removed, the saddle design accepts the Corbin removable backrest which is included in this sale. Saddle mounts to the stock internal hardware for a clean installation and is fully adjustable to provide your passenger with a tailored fit. Backrest locks in with a single bolt. SOLD!!! -- 5TH GEN BRAKE DE-LINK KIT -- SOLD!!! -- This kit allows you to convert your 5th gen linked brakes to a standard style setup by swapping VTR1000 (Super Hawk) fork lowers on the 5th gen upper fork tubes and replacing the stock brake parts with standard brakes from Honda models including CBR600 and RC51. I’ve curated nearly every part needed for this from operational, non-damaged parts ordered on eBay over the past year. The only items you will need to purchase are rear brake lines.De-Link Kit Includes:* 2003 RC51 SP2 front brake hose/lines (part num: 45125-MCF-D31) * 2003 CBR 600RR front brake master cylinder assembly (part num: 45510-MEE-006)* 2003 RC51 SP2 rear Brake calipers (part num: 45150-MCF-D32)* 2006 CBR 600F4i rear brake master cylinder assembly (part num: 43510-MBW-E12)* VTR1000 fork lower/ fork case (part num: left side 51520-MBB-003; right side 51420-MBB-003)* 5th Gen Fender mounting brackets from Mello Dude Garage -- these allow you to keep the 5th gen stock fender and mount direct to the VTR1000 lower fork legs. SOLD!!! -- DMr FORK CARTRIDGE KIT -- SOLD!!! Originally purchase for $595 a few years ago. The DMr cartridge kit offers a complete fork upgrade with the addition of having the valving preassembled - that means you do not need to have prior fork revalving experience to install it. The is new in box (NEVER installed) with detailed instructions that guide you through every step. Kit includes all new compression valving, new rebound valving, damping rods and adjustable cap assemblies. Springs are also included.According to Daugherty and folks here on VFRD, there is no other fork upgrade available on the market that offers this level of performance at this price.Kit Includes:* All new DMr BD Series compression valving* All new DMr BD Series rebound valving* Includes springs and spacers for a direct fit* New damping rods and adjustable caps* Adds external damping adjustment on models not equipped from the factory* Valving setup and spring rate configured specifically for each rider and application* Utilizes OEM cartridge tubes, no need to pay for what you don't need* All valving parts are preassembled* Includes detailed instructions for easy installation

  5. 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.
