  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

    OK kiddies. Time to help me write another Article Forum item. I'm looking for definitive procedures for the simple regular or annual servicing for the backyard mechanics or wannabe's among us. I got the idea for this while writing up the procedure I use for cleaning throttle cable and...

  1. Anybody upgraded their forks?

    I have a set of Ohlins NIX 30 cartridges coming and I'm going to pair them with a set of Ohlins springs. How did you go about selecting your spring rate and what kind of difference did you feel compared to your stock suspension? I have Showa BPF forks and they're already pretty good in stock...

  3. Bike transport

    I have to move 3 bikes between 6 and 8 hrs east of the LMD in the next couple months. The wee CB350/4, the beefy VFR1200 and the new-to-me and non-running NS400R. In addition I have 2 cars and a truck to move ........ I know, I know, first world problems. The biggest concern is the bikes. My...

  4. Shout out to Bent Bike

    I had asked around about car issues and shops that could help out a while back. I ended up taking my CB350/4 to Jim Coma and his lad at Bent Bike in Langley. I picked it up a couple weeks ago and couldn't be happier. They balanced and synced the carbs, adjusted float levels and jetting,...

  5. Two-stroke rebuilder.

    Anyone in the LMD that has experience in rebuilding mid-eighties 2 strokes? Multi-cylinder stuff, not singles. I have located a few in the UK, but I would prefer to ship an engine overseas as a last resort.

  6. Ebay bodywork vs Airtech & paint.

    Looking at a couple of older, small displacement Hondas that both need work, one item of which is bodywork. Airtech is the old tried and true stuff. Then there is the pre-painted Ebay stuff. Planning for the finished product is to be not show quality but top notch. Anyone have experience...

  8. Suspension tuning.

    I'm going to be going through my new to me f4i this winter and one of the things I'm really wanting to dial in for maintenance and tuning is the suspension. Anyone have any good resources/tips?

  9. Carb/throttle body sync tool

    I'm starting to research and compile what I'll need to check and adjust my valve clearances as well as sync the throttle bodies on my f4i. Curious what brand/make of sync tool anyone here uses? Any suggestions where to pick one up? Homemade anyone?

  10. 2017 Ninja 1000 Flash, Tune, and Dyno Results

    I owned a 2012 Ninja 1000 for 5 seasons, switched to a 2014 ZX-14R for one season, then switched back to a 2017 Ninja 1000. I had my 2012 flashed by Ivan's in NY and added a bunch of go-fast bits such as an Arrow header and Akro cans, block off plates, and a host of other tasty bits. I wanted...

  11. Where to buy Stebel

    Since there is no way I'm going to be riding the VFR anytime soon, I'm still puttering away on it in the garage. Like practically every other bike I've had, I'm looking to put a Stebel air horn on it. Since it is all apart to get the ECU re-done, I may as well do it now. I ordered one last...

  12. Throttle Response 2016 Yamaha R1

    Hi Just purchased a used 2016 Yamaha R1 with a Two Brothers S1R exhaust. Noticed that the bike's throttle response is very choppy and abrupt. Thought that the previous owner might not have flashed the ECU so took it to a tuner to get this done. Still having some issues with flat spots in the rpm...

  13. Mobile Mechanic

    Does anyone know of a mobile mechanic and their rates? I need to prep a 2006 Honda Shadow that's been sitting in my garage since summer 2015. I need to change oil, gas and perhaps the battery.
