Grrrr...
6k is way below norm for needing to replace a cam chain tensioner on a VTEC, but shit happens.
VFRDiscussion.com and VFRWorld.com are two sites where you can get lots of info on the issue.

Today, my bike died on the way to work... FI light turned on and the engine died right in the middle of a busy intersection as I was pulling away. A nice police man and my daddy came to my rescue. I actually bought a new one of these on ebay a few nights ago because my battery wasn't charging and the regulators on these bikes are notorious for failing, so I guess it got upset and decided to explode today.

You know, i've been having charging issues as well occasionally, I think it'd be a good idea to grab a spare as well

Cheers to all ya V4 lovers!
I've been going through quite some pages of this thread and I likey!

Now, here's a wee quiz for y'all:
Who would be able to tell me what the following is all about? Don't tell me it's a VFR - I figured that out!
But have you ever come across one like that? Seen the colour scheme before?

So come on - speculate, guess, know, comment - anything!






Cheers from rainy Switzerland.

Looks like someone tried to paint a 4th gen VFR750 similar to a RC45.

Nah... That's not even close to the RVF colour scheme.

It is a 4th gen VFR, though.

airfilters

How often are you guys with carb'd VFRs replacing your air filters? Manual says to do it every 12K. I did the first one when my bike had 16K and now I'm at 27K and nearly due to do it again. Both cars I have spec air filters every 15K. I don't ride this bike on dirt roads or in really dusty conditions -- could I stretch it to 15K or should I just go by the manual? Air filters for this thing are expensive -- I can't really find one for less than $40-50.

And no, I'm not putting a K&N in it.

If you're not riding in dusty conditions you could put in a K&N, though.
But I don't do it either.

So well, you change the airfilter when it's clogged, easy as that. Check it regularly and when it is really dirty you'll have to change it. The intervals in the manual are just benchmarks. I never change anything that is still ok, be it fluids, filters, tyres, tubes, spark plugs....

(Having said that, the colours look gorgeous IMHO. It just hasn't got anything to do with the (also gorgeous) RVF.)

Have another guess.

I've enjoyed my two VFR's, but it is time for a change, so I'm selling this one. If I had more room, I'd keep it, but alas...

Valves.. don't neglect 'em

So I had the valves done along with a starter valve sync this weekend. At 17k miles, one exhaust and one intake valve were too tight in cyl 3. Bike had been feeling a big bogged down lately and after taking it on a twisty group ride yesterday and getting to wring it out some it feels like it gained 20 horses at the bottom end.

You may be the first person with a VFR that I've heard of that needed a valve adjustment before 50K. I checked all mine at 20K and they were all perfect.
