Nobody has hit this, but I know there was interest out there, so bump.

Tex;

I had sent them an email some time ago. Heard back yesterday from "Leigh" at FactoryPro. They may be a little behind on the website, but I called the 800 # today, spoke with Leigh and ordered one. He said it goes out today and I'll have it by the end of the week.

The 1-800-869-0497 is the FactoryPro order desk if I wasn't clear.

I think FactoryPro is kind of disorganized. It took a month before they answered my email.

The first two guys I talked to didn't know they had them until I mentioned the email I'd recieved from Leigh, and they put him on the line. Says they got 'em, ready to ship and mine's on the way.

Yeah, they are very disorganized. Scroll down to the email Q&A and I asked Marc a question. He gave me the wrong answer and I emailed him back multiple times with the correct jetting settings and he never updated the site. Products are decent. Service sucks.

I think they see their website as more of a billboard than something to interact with, and their email as something to deal with later, if there's nothing else to do.

Best to call. Whatever, it's a toll free number. As long as they ship my order.

My hawk is an '04, will the advance help? I heard that the newer models are already advanced 4 degrees from the old one.

I've heard that but don't know. The Ronayers.com microfiches list the same part #s for the timing advance rotors for every year VTR, but interestingly, in each case they list two different part numbers for that one part.

When I adjusted my TPS from the 850-900 ohms it was shipped with down to the 500 ohms the manual calls for, I got a big improvement in incremental throttle response, but seemed to have lost a bit of hit at full throttle.

Here's what I wonder; did maybe honda "adjust" the timing on later models by simply cranking the TPS over to 850+ ohms?

I guess I'll find out personally when I get around to installing the advancer, which won't be for a while.

My '03 was just over 900 when I checked it.
