Lookin for info guys — Honda VTR 1000 Firestorm owners

Lookin for info guys.....

Put new cans on the bike and got out for a spin today. Sounds great but pops and bangs hugely when I shut throttle, especially at low revs. Is this a norm for twins wheu u change cans. They are purpose built scorpion cans for the storm. And are the pops unburnt fuel????

  • If you can covers look like this you have it

  • The pairs system is there for emissions purposes, get it removed and blanked off, it should give you a couple of bhp boost as well.

  • Most after-market exhaust systems lack a proper sealing joint from the header pipes to the mufflers (unlike the Honda OEM that have a sealing gasket) causing the popping you are describing. In such case use some copper based RTV silicone between the header pipes and the link to the mufflers. Another cause is lean pilot circuit which is common for Honda bikes. There is a proper tool to open the adjustment screws; and I suggest you try different openings while adjusting your idle to 1100RPM - 1200RPM. My set-up is like yours and my pilot screws are open 3 turns for front and 3 1/4 for the rear.

  • What brand and size of radials are the two of you running? Thom- I grew up in Lafayette, Oregon. It's between McMinneville and Newberg.

  • i am still running the stock rear shock, and yes it holds air fine, there is a guy over at v4 muscle bike forums that sells a modded up shock for the sabre, only problem i had, as i said, is the spring rate couldnt handle 2 up, plus the weight of the bike, so i went back to stock, the modd added some adjust-ability,hence why i tried it, im running a 110/80/18 up front, and a 140/80/17 avon av46, its the only radial i can find that fits, and by going to a 80 instead of a 90 profile, its lowered the bike a little, which for me worked out great ;)

  • oh, and the front is a Avon Storm ST 2 Ultra AV55, but there are a few other brands for the front Tyre ;)

These are from my first bike journey ever. When I bought my cd100 It had 35.000 km on the clock. But it still had a lot to give.

This first bike trip was to San Luis (remember I'm from Argentina) which is nearly 800 km from where I lived at the time.

Does anyone know just a thought but can you is it possible to clean Titanium — Honda VTR 1000 Firestorm owners

Does anyone know, just a thought, but can you/is it possible to clean Titanium? as in clean it up? I know ordinary polish doesn't work but thought is there something specific you need to clean Titanium? I'd love to give my cans more than a chamois can offer lol...

anyone use Shell Rotella T 15w-40 oil in their bike? the JASO MA for wet clutch compatibility was tested and the rating is shown on the back of the bottle; $7 for a quart of conventional motorcycle oil is ridiculous! Shell Rotella T is @ $13 per gallon at Walmart; thanks

%d comments
  • I heard that T6 is really good. Me myself I use castrol power rs full synthetic 10w50 with a Mobil One filter and I change my oil about 3-5times a season

  • I have been using the Rotella T6 for a few years now and have been very pleased. The Rotella T 15W-40 is cheaper, but is not a true synthetic like Rotella T6. Because our oil also lubricates and cools our transmissions, we have to be careful of additives that can create havoc there, especially Molybdenum which is added to auto oils to improve fuel efficiency, but can screw up your clutch big time. I think the Rotella 15W-40 is moly-free, but formulas and labeling requirements are always changing, so a little more research might be in order. Also the 15W can make the engine harder to turn over if you ride in cold weather like we do here. But if you are in warm weather and you change at regular inter intervals, probably will be okay. For me, I agree with Josh. Spending a few extra dollars a year is worth it for the peace of mind & knowing your engine is protected. This is a big topic of debate in some circles, but I think that if you use a good moly-free oil and CHANGE IT REGULARLY, you and your bike (especially a Honda) will be happy for a long time. If you are really interested, here's a good overview of oil and oil additives for motorcycles: l

Pauline Lewis fast orange 'Storm up for sale... 17,000 miles. Manual CCTs & finned reg rec, YTX14 (bigger) battery. Factory cans, not the Blueflames in the pic. Its had an odd occasional misfire opening up. Absolutely fine at full revs. It's had the carbs stripped twice, once by me, once by a mechanic, coils swapped for known good, new Iridium Plugs. Just hesitates for a moment as you roll on if you've shut the throttle from wide open. Once through it she goes like the clappers. So - the bottom line is, if you are interested, price would be £1,400 - we need to recoup the money we borrowed buying the ER6F - let me know your thoughts...

  • Frame looks good so far, need to take off the neck cover and look closer there. Forks are straight, handlebars are straight. All lights are untouched, levers are both good. Mostly the add ons are what got trashed. Needs a breather assembly, side cover, a footbrake pedal, tank and rider foot pegs.

  • I still have my stock pipes and breather assembly. Shoot me a message (after things calm down, of course) if you're interested.

  • That brake lever can be straightened out, how do I know? Well I dumped mine a couple of years ago and it bent pretty bad, I didn't have money to buy a new one, so I dug out a pipe wrench and bent it back into shape. Is it perfect? No, but it has been working for the last 2 years. If you need the front foot pegs let me know I have a set laying around.

Yamaha Mio caliper and Brembo brake lever with master cylinder. Nylon spacers and hand crafted brackets. You can probably use other bits if these aren't available.

OK so Im really hating the ES system.. I took shift motor off. cleaned.. greased the shift gears since they were dry, made sure all connections were greased. Saturday I took it out.. I could ride handle bar deep for hours and never an issue. I take it on some dry trails and run it hard and 15-20 min later it wont shift.. Sometimes it threw a code..sometimes it didnt.. I ended up stuck in a hole because it wouldnt shift from neutral.. Just ordered new shift motor/bank sensor and shift tool to force it.. not sure what else it could be? Read on a forum that the onboard computer could be bad..Anyone else have thoughts or suggestions? Next step is to light it on fire and walk away if these repairs fail.. LOL!
