I've been riding my new to me 2002 for the last week now and have some questions. Lifting the bike I have a harbor freight bike jack that I've been using on my cruisers for the last few years (Honda Magna, Victory Vegas, Kawasaki Vulcan) to change tires, do fork work, etc... Can I use that on the VFR? I'm looking at the bike and I don't see a good way to lift it without risking damage to the cowls or pipes. Rough engine from 2000 to 3500 RPM's I might be paranoid here. It seems like the bike runs a little rough at lower RPM's. As long as I keep it about 3500 RPM's it is smooth as butter. Idle seems fine as well. If I take off slowly from a stop light though I get some vibration in the bike that feels like a misfire. I haven't swapped out the plugs yet (That's next) but I was wondering if this is considered normal behavior and if not, what should I be looking into. Temperature readings It's been pretty cool here temp wise over the last few weeks. When I ride, I see my engine temp is around the 172 deg F mark. The other day I was sitting in traffic and it went to about 22o deg F. I believe that is about right for this bike but wanted to verify. Ambient temp was about 64 degrees at that point. I didn't notice the fan kicking on, but I had earplugs in so I probably wouldn't have heard it. I'll probably just run it in the driveway and see if it kicks on. Speedo readings OK, I know this is a ridiculously broad question... How accurate is the speedo? It could totally be that I'm not used to the bike but I keep finding myself at 83-90 MPH on the highway and it definitely dont feel like Im going that fast. Oddly, I'm just keeping up with the other cars around me in a 70 MPH zone. I don't know if people are going that fast or not, but I know I'm normally running my car through there around 75-77. Sorry for the long post guys... new bike, lots of questions!
