Scottish Newbie
on: November 29, 2014, 03:32:17 PM
Hello

Just traded in my 2001 VFR800F for a black 2012 Crossrunner after a most enjoyable test drive in grotty weather, loving that VTEC kick. Collecting it next weekend, really looking forward to getting some miles in before the weather closes in.

Cheers

Kenny

The VTEC kick is a nice change to boring 4's that just pull and pull.   Brings back memories of screeching two strokes...

Can't say I noticed a "kick" when the v'tec activates,
it's more akin to my boring IL4 that wakes up at 7.5K revs.

It doesn't catch mine though  :017:

yes there is definitely something exciting at 7K, like a turbo kicking in.   Yep. I'll go with kick

Welcome Kenny,

You'll enjoy it, and by the way, there's no such thing as bad weather, it's just the wrong clothing  :016:
Have a mate in Kinross who comes oot sometimes with me, has a ZRX 1200s at the moment, I also
have a ZRX 1200R for the good weather.

As for the "kick" - maybe it is the new Remus exhaust that I just installed last week.  It now gives a wicked kick, which was a big surprise! ; :047:

Maybe it is the Remus can I just got.  I only had it with the standard exhaust for a week, so the powerband must be down to the Remus.
