    Red face Dumb rider rant...


    Stupid VFR riders...

    The bike has very, very lean stock fuel injection causing some misbehavior under certain riding conditions.

    For some reason the logic in trying to figure this out is:

    a) (Optional) Ask other riders why the bike is like this. Recieve answer that the bike runs lean and a power commander will fix it

    b) Complain thatt $270 for a Power Commander is a rip off

    c) Spend $1000 for a pair staintune slip ons which lean the bike out even more

    d) Complain that the bike is still acting weird

    e) Spend $20 (?) on a K&N Air filter that is supposed to flow more air.

    f) Complain that the bike is still acting weird

    g) Spend $30 for a pair of O2 eliminators despite Dynojet saying they are for use with the PCIII.

    h) Complain that the bike is still acting weird

    i) Finally buy a power commander. Don't read the instructions. Don't select the correct map. Don't set the throttle position sensor.

    j) Take the PCIII out and say it didn't work and it's a bad product.

    k) Convince self that bike is running great..

    l) Wait 3 months and then complain some more that the bike is still not running great.

    Thanks for listening. There is no need for you to ever read a VFR forum now, I have just told you what 99.999% of the discussion is about.

    Why didn't you just take the guy's advice and buy a powercommander to start with? Sometime's you just don't think stuff through Ben.....

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    Definitely not me.. I don't have pipes and I've never tampered with the air filter.

    People are trying a lot of hokey stuff, plugging lines, altering the airbox etc..

    I've hopefully got my Corbin seat sold for at least what I paid for it. (Bought it used) That was definitely a mistake!

    The VFR *mailing* list is older and discusses the following:

    - Which oil to use
    - Regulator/Rectifier failures
    - Riders of other motorcycles are squids
    - Track riding is for fools
    - VTEC and any other engine advancements suck, even if Honda's next VTEC bike has a huge gain in horsepower
    - When is honda going to race the obviously superior V-4 again?
    - If you can't maintain it with a can opener, a twig, and duct tape, it obviously sucks

    Ben,you could always go back to the SV board and snip the ignition retard wire and do a snorkleectomy and run Rotella

    the secret is Rotella, it is a known fact that it will cure all motorcycle ills

    I'm lovin the Rotella, just did the synthetic Rotella this last change.

    Never understood why it's taboo to talk oil on SVRider.com when there are so many threads on installing undertails, or how to do a wheelie.

    here it is!

    Beware of synthetic oil, it can do terrible things to you and your
    beloved motorcycle. It will not only leak out of your engine faster
    than you can put it in, but it will also cause your oil filter to
    clog and implode, dumping debris and dirt into your lubrication
    system. It also will make every part of your bike permanently
    slippery because of its linear molecular chain dispersion action.
    Then it will leak onto your kickstand causing it to retract
    automatically, dropping your bike on the ground! But that's not all...

    Synthetic oil will round off your gears and spin your bearings. It
    will also splatter onto your seat causing your girlfriend to fall off
    in the apex of a turn and she'll never ride with you again. Synthetic
    oil coats your sight window and your timing window with a whitish
    pro-emulsification additive that is both non-removable and highly
    corrosive. Synthetic oil will completely leak onto the ground overnight
    and your dog will drink it and die.

    Synthetic oil will wear out your tires and make your battery leak. It
    will give you the desperate need to urinate after you put your full
    leathers on and then jam your zippers shut. It will contaminate your
    gasoline causing your bike to stall on railroad tracks and accelerate
    uncontrollably near police cars. It will make it rain during rallies
    and on weekends. It will lubricate your timing belts causing them to
    jump teeth and break your valves to bits. Synthetic oil chemically
    weakens desmodromic valves and causes the clearances to change every
    six miles. Then it melts the black soles of your riding boots right
    before you walk across your new carpeting.

    While riding past groups of attractive women it will cause both of
    your handlebar grips to slip off at the same time so you smash your
    windscreen with the bridge of your nose. It also causes your swingarm
    to crack, your studs to break, and your rotors to warp, and then it
    voids your warranty by changing your odometer reading to 55,555. It
    also dries out your wetclutch and wets your dryclutch. It makes your
    clutch slave cylinder seal fail in the heaviest traffic on the hottest
    day of the year while putting an angry wasp in your helmet for good
    measure.

    Synthetic oil hides your 13mm socket and puts superglue on your
    earplugs. Synthetic oil will scratch your faceshield and make your
    gloves shrink two sizes night before trackday. Synthetic oil stole
    your neutral and sold it to the Chinese for $1.25. Synthetic oil
    will make you grow a tail. Synthetic oil will write long crazy
    e-mails to your Internet friends and then sign your name at the
    bottom!
