Q: What is that hole or slot on the right side of the engine? Is it a defect?
A: No, this is known as a vent hole or an expansion hole for the engine. It is there for a reason and is on all Fury's. **Do not hit this hole with a screwdriver in order to crack open the casing, you could possible crack the engine here if you do not know what you are doing and potentially change the way the vent is supposed to work.
Q: How many miles will I possibly achieve on the stock Fury tires, or even aftermarket vendor tires?
A: Depends on your driving terrain and techniques for extending the life of your tire. Could get 15k+ out of the stock Dunlop's, but if you have a lot of flat, straight roads, you may wear your tires down faster than many other riders that more turns in their ride home everyday. One of the technique you can use to extend the life of your tire is the zig-zag technique, where you use most of your driving lane to slowly go back and forth, in order to work the sides of the tires more.
As motorcycle tires are round, most of the kinetic energy from the road is transferred to the center of the tire, thus heating it up and helps to wear down the tire faster. The zig-zag technique will transfer more kinetic energy equally around the tire. The stock Dunlop's are also a little harder as far as the rubber goes, compared to other manufacturer's, so you may get >15k+ miles out of the stock tires with the proper driving techniques.
Q: How can I tell the what number my Fury is as far as production goes?
A: Here goes, an example JH2SC610*AK000341
JH2 Make and type, Honda motorcycle Made in Japan
SC610 Vehicle desc. code VT1300CX (49 state model )
* Check number used to validate VIN
A Model Year 2010 (2009 was 9, for clarity now they will go A,B etc)
K Plant (Kumamoto, Japan)
000341 Sequential production number 341st 2010 VT1300CX (49 state model) made
There are different VDC for the diff. models, I don't have the ABS but :
SC610 49 state , model (A)
SC611 50 state, model (AC)
SC615 Matte , model (2AC)
that is how you could have 3 (4) bikes with the same last set of numbers,
The last 6 numbers are the sequential number in the production line. Next years numbers will start with 100001 (the first 1 denotes the first production year after the introduction of this model NOT 2011)
The VIN can be found on the frame of the motorcycle by the Triple tree's, both the sticker and the steel stamped version.

A: Yes, there are a few of them; C&C seats, Corbin and Mean City Cycles are amoung the top choices for the Fury. Other's are coming out with seats here soon as well, such as Mustang and smaller companies.
Q: I have the OEM Sissy Bar and ordered the C&C Fast back seat or touring seat, will I have trouble with install?
A: No, just press a little more with the seat during install than you normally would on the back seat portion and it should fit nicely.
Q: What do I do with that passenger seat screw hole in the back if I ride solo?
A: You can cover it up with just about anything. This includes plastic rubber caps, spike or normal screws and whatever else will fit in the screw hole. There are a couple of good threads on this with different options, check it out here: https://www.furyforums.com/forum/fury...eat+screw+hole

Q: My bike is a solo bike, without the stock passenger seat on it, is there a suction cup seat that is available?
A: Yes, one of the better ones is the Cruise Pack Suction Cup Bag / Pillion Pad, because of the extra storage if nobody is on back. Here is the link: http://www.chopperscycle.com/Cruise-...-p7414587.html

Q: How much will I have to spend in order to make the Fury look really good or to "make it mine?"
A: Determines on your goal, make sure to have in mind what direction you want to go with it or even better, a theme you may want to go with. This may only take you less that 1K$ to get to where you want to go or even less.
But, if you want to add mostly chrome to the bike, you are looking to spend anywhere from 3k$ and up for all your accessories. Also, the paint is another determining factor, this could cost 1k$ and up. Check out this thread: https://www.furyforums.com/forum/fury...ts-effort.html
Q: What are the color codes for the Fury?
A: Check this post here please: http://www.colorrite.com/matrix-colo...TOKEN=98634807
Q: My front brake always sounds like it rubs, is this normal?
A: Modern day motorcycles are made so that you can actually hear the brake pad there and is made to gently rub against the rotor. No worries, unless the rubbing is severe, this is a safety feature built into the motorcycle.
Q: Is there a guide on how to install the Cobra Pipes?
A: Yes, please refer here: https://www.furyforums.com/forum/fury...a-exhaust.html

Q: I am looking to replace the headlight assembly, what is the size of the headlight?
A: Just a little under 5 1/4", it is a metric bike after-all...
Q: Can I lower the rear end of the bike? It kind of looks like a dirt bike with the rear fender so far off of the tire!
A: Yes, there are a couple of different ways to lower the rear end of the bike, which Honda seemed to have forgotten. First off, there is the Low and Mean
lowering spring, which you can find on their website. The second way to lower the bike would be to cut the spring, contact MyFuryRide
for details about this modification if you would just like to cut the spring. Third is the T-mod or Tony Mod, which is answered on the next Q & A.
Q: What is the T-mod and where can I find information on it?
A: The T-mod is a modification to the rear frame, just underneath the rear fender. It will require a little cutting and a little welding in order to complete this modification, so if you are unsure of this modification, please ask for help or get somebody more experienced with a welding torch to help you out. Also, our forum member, MyFuryRide also has experience with this and sometimes travels to different locations to help people out with it, contact him if you would like his assistance or to ask general questions.
The original concept was thought up by our own Forum Member, Tony and this is why it is called the T-mod, check it out: https://www.furyforums.com/forum/fury...ewest-mod.html
