    Samuel -

    The custom hub for my CZ rear wheel won't fit on a 8th Gen. But the 8th Gen's wheels look great anyway, so no problem!

    Yeah, I noticed some handling differences when we mounted the CZ wheelset.

    By the way, I am not listing anything for sale now. I was just posting what I am doing to my VFR!

    Well, not my VFR but I helped fellow VFRWorld member Spartacus install his DMr fork kit. I have to say that if anyone is thinking about doing a stock fork upgrade, the DMr kit is well made and the instructions are easy to follow.

    Are the headers painted or is that ceramic coating? If that's paint, you could most likely have a muffler shop weld a new end on that without much grief

    Delkevic, i know ,i know..... but the idea of stainless, cost & availability seemed too good to not try.not sure what i'll do with it ,as of now ,it's back in the box .seems to be decent quality but just doesn't want to align correctly & they must have sent an incorrect adapter pipe after the collector as their center stand stop is all wrong & if i were to mate my Scorpion stainless can it would stick out like a sore thumb.

    Again, not my VFR, but I was able to help Scubalong with his VFR oil change and rear brake pad replacement. Have to say, whenever Long comes by, it's alway worth it. Lagunitas IPA is always a good form of payment! Also, it's always good to see my friend Long. BTW, we are plotting and scheming on a R3 alternative for next year, IF Reg cannot host for next year.

    As far as info, still vetting that out and once that's done, I'll post up info. As for Long, that's for him to answer.

    Hauled the VFR1100ST out for a blast on Sunday over great dry roads, then tried my weather luck on Monday (in honour of the birthday of our sovereign) with the VFR. You'd never guess from this photo, but 5 minutes later it was absolutely hosing down, and I was very grateful for my Roadtec tyres.

    After a crazy day on the job, I rode out to the Ridge motorsports track just a 30 mile jaunt out 101 to check in on how Jr. was doing there, only to find he was worn out from the days activities, so saw this comradery of folks chilling.

    [​IMG]

    Then of all things, met up with a couple there that I haven't seen in a while, his new ride is a KTM Super duke. 169hp with 102ft.lbs toque, whoa. LOL he tossed me the keys told me to go try it out....... O... My F'n Lord , shouldn't have done that.
