Hi all New member and first time poster here. I have owned an 04 VFR 800 for a few months now and am hoping for some feedback or advice re issues with the bike. First up I love the look of it, yeah I know its a personal thing but to my eyes it just looks the goods. I have to say though im a bit disapointed with the way it rides. I always wanted a VFR and being a Honda I expected smooth riding but its just not the case. I have found the throttle surges and is very touchy (ie. almost on/off) around town. Its really nice at freeway speeds but just a headache to ride in traffic. Even maintaining a constant speed without moving the throttle at all, the bikes tends to surge and hesitate at times, almost as if the injectors are clogged or its misfiring. Ive taken it to a dealer and after riding it I was told it is performing normally and they couldnt fault it. I have read other reports of similar issues and heard of all sorts of fixes including o2 sensor mods etc, but i just cant accept a modern fuel injected bike should need to be played with to perform properly. Im not looking for more power, just would like it to run more smoothly. Coming from carby Kawasakis i am quite suprised this bike doesnt ride as smoothly and is harder to manage at slow speed. I am hoping other VFR owners may be able to shed some light on the problem, perhaps my bike needs a tune. Otherwise I am seriously considering ditching it and buying something like a Blackbird. Thanks in advance.
