Well thankyou Sir! Yes my k5,1000, the never ending project, here is a couple of photos for you.
Lol!!! Look at that power curve!!!
Yeah, didn't fall off until after 13k.
my apologies - wasn't trying to put words in your mouth! really like that the bike pulls harder above 6900rpm's, and your statement that your gas mileage wasn't as bad as initially thought. definitely think it'll be a pipercross (unless stock filter is better), PCV, and a slip-on (but hoping for a full system as mentioned above). I can't see that link, must be something with the military firewalls. can anyone give me the gist of it?
According to the guy doing my tune, the stock air filter is actually better, performance wise, compared to aftermarket. I'm not sure how big the difference is but I'm sticking with the stock filter; you just have to remove the screen. And for the link, that is a discussion on the other VFR forum about a company that is finally developing a full exhaust and is currently testing it so hopefully we should see them up for sale this year.
cool, I guess i'll keep the stock filter then. which company is developing a full exhaust - any idea? does it say in the article?
For the full story follow the url from OOTV posted above at 02-03-2016, 11:20 AM.
Nice, just a couple pics huh ? That's some serious love right there K5dave, Now that's what I call a sweet ride.
Thank you, yes my K5 1000, was in FastBikes magazine, twice. They did a track test and road test, on my K5 and did a 5 page right up, the test rider said, its the best K5 he has ever ridden, he said a well sorted Gixer. I got the dry weight down to 158kls, which was not bad. :smug:
Is that a dry or wet weight?! Either way that is impressive. Beautiful bike.
I actually got it down to 164 kls wet in the end, that was with oil and water, no fuel though.
Very nice. I got my 06 CBR 1000rr down to around 418 lbs with about 1.5 gallons of fuel.
Tyga is maybe making a limited run of multi-piece headers for the earlier gen's. Making a set of front tubes for the 8th gen is TBD.
Being developed by Tyga.
Hey Knight, I'd love to follow the url, however, as previously stated, I'm currently deployed and the military firewalls won't let me access the story, unfortunately...
Sorry about that!
The conversation began on the VFRDISCUSSION web site and the thread name is "Tyga Vfr800 Headers"
I just installed a PCV on my VFR800 and I am loving it. Did you install the auto tuner as well? I have one and I have not installed it yet. I think I am going to have to drill and tap out the existing O2 sensor bung not a big deal just haven't got started on it yet she is my daily ride.
