  5. Sticky Thread Sticky: VFR VTEC Must Read Throttle Problems

    Anyone who owns a Honda VFR 800 VTEC really should read the following. I have been dealing with this saga for a year and it finally appears the answer is at hand. The starter valves are not synced properly at either the factory or the dealer, plus the service manual is very misleading! The...

    Trying to find a guide to which rim widths support which tire sizes. I have looked at a couple of tire sites but they do not break out that info. Want to change my sweetie's zzr250 to radial but want to keep the handling 'normal'. I can ride that thing no matter WHAT tire is on it, but she needs to...

  3. Which Givi Case? Monokey or Monolock?

    I am looking into getting a topcase. My needs for the case are that it needs to hold atleast either a helmet or a 12 case of beer in bottles. Anything too big may look ridiculous on the little 300. Which case will be the best bang for my buck? seems the mono-key are the only ones capable...

  4. bad coils and missing..

    how likely is it if the coils check out good on ohm's, the idle is fine and it runs fine that they or at least one i suppose start breaking up once it hits 8 grand.. the thing falls flat on it's face as if it's on the limiter.

  7. RMR Suspensions reviews?

    Hey Guys, I've never had any of my bikes' suspensions properly 'setup', other than some subtle tweaks myself. I have been considering having RMR do a setup on my K7 gixxer...seems reasonable for what they charge. I'd imagine that it' money well spent. Thoughts or reviews on these guys? Too...
