Pisser = 1983 Honda CB1000C

Been riding my New to me 1983 Honda CB1000 to work North Phoenix area Sonoran Blvd windy today. Stopped to buy gas 19 Ave and Happy Valley. Then rode home got home and the left side cover was missing - Pisser . Look on Ebay (the garage sale to the world) dopes wanting $100 plus dollars for one - Pisser

I am just venting - bike is running good - new tires installed but this is a Pisser

Beautiful bike.

Did the 1000 still have that little sub trans for hi-lo?

Thumb Hi - Lo range transmission

Yes the CB1000C has the HI-Lo range transmission - 1983 CB1000C is a 1 year only bike but is actually a CB900C punched out so parts do interchange. 1980-1982 CB900 production.

So far has been a very fun bike I am enjoying 4 cylinder 1000cc compared to my 2 cylinder 1000cc BMW - different beast in power delivery. Got to get out my old non-EPA approved mercury carb balancer.

Fuel injection - What's That

I love those bikes. When honda put them out, they wanted to use a modified engine from the dohc 750 with a shaft drive. The Goldwing shaft was the perfect candidate, but was on the wrong side. They figured that if you have to put a jackshaft to mate these two pieces, might as well make it a hi-low range into the bargain. Saved a crapload on making all new machining stuff and ended up with a sweet machine.

I've always kept my eye out for a nice one, either 900 or 1000. I'd like to move my side car from my K8 Honda 750 to one of these. I think that would be the perfect tug, shaft drive, that hi / lo would be great. Low for round town tugging and hi for the road.

They don't show up often though and when they do they seem to be pretty pooched out.

Here's a nice one on the West Coast. Got a lot of miles on it though....61K.
