  1. A different kind of ride for relax, low and slow....
  2. Great topic......I find the same issue while in a more sporting lean. I have a Shoei RF1100...Not a major pain, but annoying. Wondering if to get a different helmet more suited for backroad follies.. And what would that be?
  3. What do you like to clean an oil mess on a connector set?
  4. I like to send my forks and shock to this guy, he does the work, and ships it back. Painless... http://daughertymotorsports.com/
  5. The new Hayabusa's are beautiful........
  6. I think I got it...just needed patience... (what's that?) - My bench setup is just the MC, a short brake line, and a spare CBR rear caliper in a vise. I just prefer to get fluid moving and confirm the rebuild is good before installing on the bike.... I still hate working with any brake fluid and bleeding.... sometimes its 10 minutes and its good to go, other times its screw with for an hour or more, and not get anywhere. Bleah! I saw you posted you wrecked.... so the frame is toast? Curious as to your plans.
  7. Trying to bench prime/bleed a fresh rebuild of front brake master cylinder, it doesnt wanna go.... stubborn as hell. Any suggested tricks?
  8. Awesome sprocket there dude..... - I think Riders Discount, the sponsor here has the best prices on DID chains, I just got one myself,.
  9. That is a common issue in the VFR world, heck Honda world too. The charging system sucks, so the typical fix is to ditch the OEM R/R and goto a Shindengen SH847 or FH020 from Roadstercycle http://roadstercycle.com/ Then wire it direct to the battery. Also ... eliminate the connector R/R to the stator and solder the wires together. Cheers
  10. Holy shit, that looks fun! I bet the track floor is slick.... This is Cincy?
  11. Damn dude, more power to you..... I don't know if I could do the same so soon....
  12. I am on 6 or 7 motorcycle forums and from hanging out too many years I have read that the windscreen hot sun magnifying glass thing seems to be a common occurrence on multiple bikes. I have a burn mark on the dash on my VFR.... gotta remember to bring a carry cloth to throw over on ride stops....
