That's some good info there John. Nice one!

If I were to take a guess, I'd say that the switch in the speedo is a infra-red switch. (Not that it makes any difference.) I'm thinking it probably works the same as the infra red beam they put across shop doors so that when someone walks in it sounds a bell.

THREE teeth out on a cam gear ... that's bat shit crazy! I'm surprised it didn't bend valves.

That's a good point, it would make for much simpler electronics

So am I, but it may have been a sloppy valve job/overhaul by the previous owner

Yeah, that was a bit crazy. I only used the Vboost on long rides and turned it off around town

but I did hear of someone using a bicycle grip-shift to operate Vboost while riding - throttle on both hands

Hi all. I have a Japanese spec model without vboost. Over the past month, bought all the parts listed above from ebay or sean morley. Also, to make it easier, changed the wiring bundle as the Jpn version didnt have the vboost wires, which then required changing my switches and ignition key wiring.

Can now see why everyone raves about the vboost. Just need to get used to riding at higher rpms.
