Welcome back, but you are gonna wish you never did
I took my 2004 VFR touring last fall. Look at the Chicken Strips! How embarrassing . . .
I didn't say it produced more torque and neither has Honda.
I posted a dyno chart for my 2004. Not surprisingly, the torque "curve" shows two distinct stages, one above and one below the VTEC actuation point. Anyone have actual dyno data from an 8th Gen or are we all using the butt-dyno? I am curious.
As comparison, my brand new 1997 VFR750 dyno'd at the rear wheel with 90.1 hp and 49 lbs torque after having the idle jets drilled and dropped.
This isn't Honda's problem. The VFR is not underpowered in the slightest. Surely one shouldn't blame a pick-up truck for not having the power of a Kenworth or a Ferrari for not being able to carry your hockey bag and two hockey sticks. It sounds to me like you need two bikes. (Do not tell my wife you heard me say that!) Your VFR for most of your biking needs and an R1 or an FJR for your over the top power needs. Yes you are giving up comfort with the R1 and adding weight with the FJR but that's the reality we riders are faced with.
Regarding your search for more power,... I take it you are just looking for a power rush? You never really gave details as to when or why you are running out of power on your VFR. If 2 bikes won't work then maybe some badass engine modifications to your VFR will suffice. I hope you find what you are looking for. Sometimes the looking is half the fun.
