  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. Fork Swap

    So I just picked up my first bike, a 2002 zx6r with 27,000 kms. My question is should I just use it to get experience and upgrade to a newer bike in the future or is the zx6r a good candidate for a fork swap (more or less for aesthetics than performance). Thanks in advance, any input with be...

    I am taking my 2011 Suzuki V-Strom DL650 up to Alaska with a friend on Friday, and my fuel pump has stopped working.
