    Hello from Nebraska

    Howdy folks. I figured I might as well join a forum or two for my new (to me) bike purchase, a 2010 VFR1200. I decided after a few years of tinkering, fixing, and building my 1975 GL1000 Goldwing that I was tired of dealing with carbs and wanted something more powerful and better handling that could also still cover longer distance rides. I have always wanted a VFR1200 ever since they came out, and while many people seem very split on their opinions of the bike, I can say that it feels like Honda asked me what I thought the ultimate bike was and built it. This is my GL1000, and she has been an incredibly fun old bike, especially after fitting progressive rear shocks and RaceTech front springs and Gold Valve emulators with a fork brace. A Hydraulic clutch conversion and a few other upgrades later, a bit of a diet, and some Suzuki Sunlight Copper Pearl metallic paint make one nice looking machine (if I say so myself). However, it is time to move on, so she is going to a new owner soon. Anyway, on to the reason I am here. I went out and got myself a younger "hotter" redhead. I was actually not planning on even buying a bike for a couple more months, but when I saw this bike up for sale for a really good price, I had to jump all over it. After the ride home, she has a tick over 10k miles, and has a House of Kolor Orange Pearl Metallic paint job (previous owner was a paint and body shop owner). It also has some Throttlemeister bar ends and came with a few extra goodies like a Corbin seat, taller clear windshield, and Honda Panniers. My next steps are to get new tires, as the front is worn very poorly, and they are skirting on 5 years old. I also plan on sending my forks and rear shocks off to Daugherty Motorsports to get setup for my rather large self as this suspension was definitely not intended to handle all 6'4 260lbs of me. While I know the high end Ohlins stuff is worth its weight in gold, I am not a hardcore corner carver/track rider, so it's all wasted on me. Plus I have read nothing but great things about DMr setups on these bikes. The only other things in my plans for this bike is a DAM slip on because I don't like the look or sound of the Two Brothers can that is currently on the bike, and maybe some lighting upgrades. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings, and sorry if the pictures are too big. I look forward to reading through other mods/upgrades and various discussions on this amazing bike.

    A little incident

    From the album: Escape to CO

    Man parks car, enters Arby's. Brian leaves Arby's, backs bike up. Car comes out of gear, hits Brian. Ambulance arrives, takes Brian away. Moral of the story, never leave your house in that Hawaiian shirt.
  4. I believe these are all with the stock pipe, and it's not clear from the naming what's going on in the first image; it may be just their baseline runs overlaid. ...if anyone understands "dyno lingo" let me know. lol These runs were done a while back when my bike had only 1700 miles on it. I can tell that the motor has woken up a bit since then so I'm looking forward to getting it back on the dyno with it fully broken in and the Akro pipe installed. Stock mapping (maybe the black line is with the Z-Fi unit and map): 1st gear with (black) and without (red) the Z-Bomb (removes 1st & 2nd gear limitations): 2nd gear with (black) and without (red) Z-Bomb: I'm told they have all the connectors for the Z-Fi unit, but are having some issues getting the right connectors for the Z-Bomb (hoping to be resolved in the next couple weeks). All this reaffirms what my butt tells me every time I hit the twisties (mostly all 2nd gear) ...WTF was Honda thinking with this BS limiting of the 1st & 2nd??? The way the power sags then comes on just SUCKS. For most of the twisty roads I've found in Southern California, 1st is just too short and 2nd is on the lugging side, which means you have to ride through that horrible trough constantly, usually pulling out of the apex of a turn. I can do it in 1st and stay up in the power band, but man talk about needing a LOT of throttle control! lol It's really a shame that Honda did this to cripple what is an otherwise very easy to handle 140-150hp bike. ...it really is borderline dangerous, and I can't wait to get it fixed permanently, even if it means having the gear indicator on the dash not working correctly anymore.
  5. I checked the manual and it only says "Honda Hypoid Gear oil SAE 80". It doesn't mention anything about GL-4 or GL-5. So any gear oil that is sae 80 will work? also these are the only gear oil I can find where I'm from: Will any of these work for the VFR 1200 Final Drive?
  6. They have the connectors and are getting ready to start shipping! Call Tracey at Bazzaz (909-597-8300, ext. 111). She is exceptionally nice and knowledgeable (her husband is a Jordan Suzuki mech. for Roger Hayden and works at Bazzaz in the off season). There are several of you ahead of me, but she expected mine to ship within a couple of weeks. I will put it on when I swap out those ratty OEM Bridgestones for my PilotRoad 3's over the winter. It will show 3rd gear in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, but that is a small price to get rid of the nanny throttle. You know, Kawasaki and Suzuki sell their big GT's mostly unrestricted. I fail to understand why Honda would do this instead of just installing traction control (I know, the new blue VFR's having traction control). I love this bike, but as their technological flagship, it should have had traction control, cruise control, saddle bags, etc. as standard OEM equipment in 2010 (especially at that MSRP.....I paid less than 2/3 MSRP). Ride safe. Mark Z-Bomb Honda VFR1200F 10-12
  7. I have derestricted the 1st and 2nd gear power limitations. I have made a simple scematic : You will get falsh readings on the dash when 1st or 2nd gear are engaged. I am busy decoding the serial link between ECU and dash. To be continued
