  1. Powder Coating Exhaust Shields?

    Hi everyone. I have been contemplating getting my exhaust shields powder coated black to match the rest of my bikes powder coated items. Such as my rearsets, swingarm, head cover, bars, levers, clamp, etc. Has anyone ever done this before and would the heat from the exhaust effect the powder coat at all. Thanks for looking. In my opnion the guards being black would completely change the look of the bike.
  2. Hi Guys/Girls, can anyone give advice on this. My Old Boy and I have just started servicing the 94 750, and as we were flushing the coolant system we’ve noticed that there seems to be a fresh oil leak that has just started on the 3 bolt exhaust flange at the rear of the motor. We originally had a smokey exhaust when we first picked it up, this has stopped. We believed it was either old stale fuel, or a slightly sticky ring. The rear spark plugs had a coating of oil while the fronts were clean. Any advice would be handy on thoughts as to what could be occurring? If it’s a sticky ring, any way of releasing it? And if this isn’t the case, what cost am I looking at to get into the motor to fix this ? Thanks Hendo
  3. Custom Rear Mudguard Tidy

    Hey All, First time VFR owner and first time poster. I've been a Triumph thoroughbred for a while now - owning both a Street Triple and Thunderbird - I decided I wanted something a bit more sport touring. A few family friends own VFR's from various generations and I have heard nothing but good things about them. So I decided to buy a 2009 VFR800 to add to my stable. The previous owner did some tasteful mods to it such as Honda hard bags, leovince exhaust, tail tidy and a double bubble windshield. To add my own touch to it I'm adding a few mods to it myself - honda logos on lower portion of the fairing, reflective rim stripes and a rear tire hugger from red fox (waiting for it in the mail). In addition I wanted to create a new tail tidy as I noticed without any form of mud guard, the tail lights get coated in road grime and dirt and muck which reduces their effectiveness (plus they are getting sandblasted.) I am making a new inner rear fender to cover up the gap in between the exhaust behind the tail tidy. My ultimate goal is to cast my prototype in carbon fiber. Take a look and let me know your thoughts or if you have any suggestions.
  4. Exhaust collector (balance) box

    Anyone know if the collector box off a VF500C (V30, Magna) will bolt onto a VF500F/F2 (interceptor)? They look the same and as the bottom ends of the engines are the same so I assume it would fit but nothing beats personal experience. There are quite a few decent condition Magna boxes on Ebay but less F boxes.
  5. Hi everyone, I hope you're all well and in good spirits. I got my 'beast' just under a year ago and she was broken, battered and neglected. There was no MOT, the chain and sprockets were rusty, chain adjuster was seized, the oil was jet black and there was massive hole in the cat. But to be fair... it was quite clean: I got it in the middle of winter for a very reasonable price, so I then embarked upon a journey to restore her to her former glory! The list includes: -2 new Michelin Road Pilot 4 tyres -new D.I.D chain and sprockets -new tapered steering stem bearings -new front brake discs and pads -new battery -fitted an independent hazard light kit wired straight to the battery with blinker relay and diodes -powder coated wheels and nose cone bracket in gloss black -puig double bubble screen -side exhaust conversion (yoshi can) -pillion foot pegs and grab rails removed and honda blanks fitted -new rear wheel bearings (including needle and sprocket carrier bearings), all replaced with genuine Honda parts -eccentric hub cleaned and re-greased, chain adjuster is now free to move -new oil and filter, new coolant, coolant reservoir also cleaned -new spark plugs -K&N air filter -removed chain guard and sprocket cover and cleaned out years worth of grease and dirt -exhaust studs and nuts all replaced with stainless steel This is what she looks now: As it was coming up to winter, I thought the stock headlights could do with an upgrade, so I fitted these: I'll stop rambling for now, but I'm very pleased to be a part of the VFRd community! :)
  6. Thinking of getting myself a smaller pipe, maybe a straight pipe. Looking to see if anyone locally in SoCal would want to pick up my gently used Akropovic exhaust and how much they're willing to pay with all the hardware. Thanks all!
  7. Please forgive my laziness and lack of research, but I have a simple question for those who understand what a 'cat' does ... If I remove the entire stock exhaust system from my 2001 (pre-VTEC) VFR800 and replace it with this complete Delkovic system ... Link ... ... then how will it affect the running of the bike (given that the sensors previously attached to the Catalytic convertor will now not be attached to anything)? Thanks, in advance, for your replies. Andy
  8. Recall and a Gutting.

    Hi Guys and Gals, So spoke to my nearest Honda motorcycle dealer Rick Gills Motorcycles and Paul from their parts and service was very helpful. Turns out my bike hasn't had the recall work carried out as shown by a lack of punch/stamp below the J on the head stock VIN stamp. As shown below. There should be a dot punched/stamped there below the J if the recall work has been carried out. So if any of the Aussie 6th geners are reading that's what to check if you have a bike with a VIN between JH2RC46U*2M400005 to JH2RC46U*5M700241. (Don't know if the mark is standard across the world/regions). So the part(s) have been ordered and I'll get a call in a week or 2 to book it in for the work. On the exhaust front I got some great feedback (for once ) with Gumtree. A couple of interstate riders willing to help out but shipping would have defeated the purpose of keeping the cost down. Ended up getting a pair off of a great bloke named Simon locally on Monday for a 100 buckaroos. Local exhaust shop said $25 a side to weld the ends back on so I got to it last night as shown. I marked approximately 6mm in from the centre of the weld to cut with the hack saw. Sorry about the photo quality. A bit of persuasion and BFI and I got it out.. Got the other side done and called it a night. In total it took about 1 hour and a half and a few beers. I dropped the cans off at the exhaust shop this morning, as they are flat out and my job is no worth much to them it could take a day or 2. I'll be annoyed if I can't try them by the weekend. I'll try to get some audio recording as well to put up. Thanks for taking the time to check it out. Cheers.
  9. Note: There are several versions of the mid-pipe for the 6th Gen Staintune exhaust. The hanger and shape may differ. Note 2: If your Staintune exhaust is second hand, inspect the hanger mount-point on the mid-pipe for cracking. This is a common failure point and Staintune will repair/replace for free, or you can have a local welder take care of it (voids warranty). Note 3: Some Staintune systems for 6th gens are one piece. You can follow this guide, just know your mufflers are pre-attached. Remove Seat Disconnect license plate light connector. Remove four 10mm bolts. Bolts closest to the rear can be tight, gently pull upward on the light to provide better access. Remove two 12mm bolts. Pull license plate wire out of under-seat compartment. Remove license plate/light assembly. Loosen exhaust clamp. Loosen muffler hanger bolts. Both have 13mm nuts under the seat. Remove both hanger bolts. Be careful when removing the last bolt, as the exhaust will be able to drop down to the tire. Gently swivel off the exhaust, and remove. Remove the OEM lead gasket from the outlet pipe on the catalytic converter, as this is not needed. Wash your hands. Take a well earned beverage break and marvel at how heavy that stock exhaust is! Now, let's install the Staintunes! Remove rear most bolt on the right passenger foot-peg. Mount the Staintune mid-pipe, noting alignment with that passenger foot-peg bolt hole. Install provided longer bolt and nut to the passenger foot-peg. If you need one, it's a M8x55-1.25 bolt and matching nut. I replaced the other three passenger peg bolts to match since they were not a hex type. (M8x50-1.25, (2) M8x30-1.25) Tighten the exhaust clamp. Slide the left muffler onto the mid-pipe, and install / tighten the previously used hanger nut and bolt. Staintune text should be facing the outside of the bike. Do the same with the right muffler. Feed the license plate light wire back into the under-seat compartment. Reinstall the two 12mm bolts. Reinstall the four 10mm bolts. Reconnect license plate light connector. Reinstall the seat, start the bike, and enjoy!
  10. I bought this VF500F earlier this year as a project bike and my second ever motorcycle. I have been working on making it look better and work as it did in the '80s(while modernizing where I can). I thought I was buying a 1985 VF500F, but have since found out from the MTO history documents that it is an '84. Its got 56 thousand km on it, but it runs and it was cheap. I have been told that one of the previous owners restored it using a few donor bikes and based on the frame paint and what not I'd say it has. I have been taking it apart and learning how it works so that I can fix up anything is out of date or falling apart. It has been fairly straight forward so far using guides and chatting with people on this forum, but I have a few questions and am looking for general advice. I've been thinking about the exhaust on this bike for awhile. The bike has some sort of upgraded 4-1 exhaust on it and I think I've identified it as the Hindle 4-1 pipe. It shows it's age though. There is rust pitting and an odd cloudy texture on the metal. How do I resurface the pipe? Also, the can that was on the end was a SuperTrap, but its kinda broken and I'd like something lower profile too. I have been considering leaving the end open as a straight pipe, except the end of the pipe is messed up and has an adapter bolted straight through it. To fix this I want to remove the end bit of the pipe and fab my own stainless side exit. Would this be viable? Will it mess with the tuning too much? I am aware of the carb jetting I'd need to do in order to make it work and I can do it. All that I've been reading from GAZ's topic about building his own pipe has put me off though. I'd also like to know what having this pipe means compared to stock. Besides the exhaust I am open to advice for things to fix. So far my list of things to do looks like this: Tires Repainted wheels Lights Speedometer Redone seat Chain and sprockets Wobbly clutch lever(How do I fix this?) Carb sync and clean Carb jetting Mirrors I am going to link an album of pictures here for the pipe. http://imgur.com/a/RmqqA P.S. - I am not keeping the original look of this bike, but I am a huge fan of the engineering behind the VFR series and I've wanted one of these since I first got into bikes. If anyone in Ontario needs red plastics or stock parts I can hook you up. This is an ultra-low budget D.I.Y. build, since I'm 18 and in school(before anyone suggests super sonic builders who can do it for me). Why is mine red?

  12. Stumbled across some nice high res pictures of the 8th gen's header. Very interesting design. It is a stark contrast to the 5th and 6th gens, as the front 2 pipes merge and the rear 2 pipes merge, before hitting the cat. Also worth mentioning is the single o2 sensor right before the cat, as opposed to the 5th/6th gens two o2 sensors. You can zoom way in on them here on their ebay listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2014-Honda-VFR800F-Interceptor-Exhaust-Header-Pipe-Manifold-18150-MJM-D00-/232031761742?hash=item36062bb54e:g:oqAAAOSwdzVXm5tR&vxp=mtr

    Little audio clip of the Delkevic high mount 18" SS after I got it installed. Definitely a deeper note and sexier look.

    Swapped out the OEM muffler for a Vance and Hines SS2R, about 3.5 lbs lighter and sounds SO good. Plus I took the top box off for a little while, and I put the solo cowl back on.

  23. Wrong part for the job

    I've actually been trying to figure out how to quiet down my exhaust since I got the bike. I've already repacked the mufflers (they needed it) and wrapped some of the horible PO welding (all straight pipes cut at angles and welded together to make bends under the bike) and it still sounded like it came from a race track. Don't get me wrong, I like me some good exhaust note, but this was so much that I wouldn't ride it across a parking lot withough earplugs. So I'd been thinking, I need something to divert more of the airflow through the packing and less straight through the middle of the muffler. I was thinking of getting one of the guys that I work with to weld a washer on the end of a short section of pipe that would fit inside the muffler but not go past the stop it has in the middle. Then, as I was rooting around looking for some useable section of pipe in my garage, I found it. . . A Bicycle Stunt Peg It was perfect. A bit heavy, and I'd like to put some holes in the side of it (which I probably won't be able to do since it's really sturdy) but it works how I wanted it too. By the way, the exhaust is still lounder than I want, but it's closer. I might post some pictures of it when I pull it apart to redo it.
