    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...

I'm guessing it's simply impurities in the cheap Arashi rotors discolouring, but figured I'd ask if anyone's familiar with this? I redid my brakes entirely last August; new seals...

  3. 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?

  6. Battery Tender at CT

    Canadian Tire has Black& Decker battery tenders on sale ( till Thurs) for $18.88. I bought a couple and they seem to work fine, they are a proper battery tender and not just a transformer and a resistor.
