  4. 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...

  8. Sticky Thread Sticky: A call for Simple Servicing Procedures

    Where can I get these in bulk? They have a standard bolt head and an inner torks head and they are awesome. I would like to put them in every hole everywhere. And I mean that. These:

  4. voice/music/gps?

    Is there an all in one system that will coordinate this? Currently using phone for music and occasionally (rarely) navigation. That works fine locally. Cost goes up cross border but presumably will work fine to a point as well. Can take calls as well. What if you want to add rider to rider...

  5. Suspension GURU's and Vendors for Ohlins in Vancouver?

    Anyone know of any shop that sells Ohlins (or can order them in at a reasonable price, I dare not to even ask a dealer and get r@ped) and also assist with install (the easy part) but also know what they are doing to adjust to dampening, sag, compression etc (the more technical part)? Bike:...

  8. Dyno Tuning

    Does anyone know of any places locally that does Dyno tuning for bikes equipped with a piggyback ECU? I tried searching the forum and results are very old and couldn't get a hold of anyone. Much appreciated if anyone knows of a local tuner.
