  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...

  2. Painting chromed parts

    Do you need to strip the chrome or can chrome be painted over with no issues (assuming you do the prep work like you do on a conventionally painted part)? TIA!

  4. Best local shop for Honda sportbike parts?

    I had a Suzuki for 7 years, but now I have a Honda. Where (other than Carter, whom I have had bad experiences with and will never return) is a good local shop for simple mods like a tank pad, tank bag, windscreen etc? Or, is online the only way to go?

I do not know if they are oem on new bikes but since Honda tend to have electrical issues and I run extra draws, I thought it would be a good idea. Do you all use one on...

  7. Scorpio SR-I900 alarm system

    I just installed the system yesterday at work. install time was 30 minutes. And then a hour of reading and testing. Setting it off if people bump the front or rear wheel sort of deal. Was wondering if people have had any miscommunications between the remote and the alarm itself or false alarms....

  9. Broken front disc bolt

    Hello. Can anyone recommend a shop that can remove a broken disc bolt? Preferably around the Langley area. The bolt extractors at can tire are around 50 bucks and if I'm going to use it only once that's pretty steep. Thanks.

  10. Old ABS

    How does older (10 years or so) ABS compare to current? There's some pretty amazing stuff coming out on adventure bikes that works on all kinds of surfaces, but how about for general street use? I know this stuff evolves; early air bags sometimes did more harm that good, the ABS on my 1993 truck...
