Something to look at while you're sipping on that beer

Used a 1.2 mm drill-bit and the flexible thingy to get into tight spots



I think I'll pop open a cold one myself, cheers !

That screw is a heck of a lot bigger than the last slide screw I worked with. Good job.

I thought it was small enough , thanks man !

Now the whole dilemma with the different carbs is solved, both needles on my own carbs are loose, just put in some new screws (flathead instead of philips this time ) and voila

Yeah I just thought of that too.
I'll swing by a hardware store tomorrow to see if they have any little allen bolts with the correct size

Are the needle clip positions stated in the manual referred to as starting from the top of the the needle?
i.e. the leanest state (needle as low as it gets) would be 1st groove?

#1/top groove is the leanest. Usually have five grooves. Bottom being the richest. Start in the middle and tune from there. I remember jetting my XL600 and what a PITA removing the carbs was. One tip is to use a heat gun or hair drier on the intake boots to soften them up. A shot of WD40 and the carbs slide on like butter.

Thanks

I pretty much have the carb removal down by now, but it's still a pain yea.

As it turns out my needles were in the right position (as listed in manual) all along, but atleast now I know

And as we all know

Breather pictures

OK Grasshopper, here are your photos.

The tube follows an open space next to the frame and the filter hangs into the air box.


Used a square(ish) barbed elbow from HomeeD's. The filter is a Uni from the parts store.


Tube routing is real simple. It think it's good to have a length of vertical tube to allow the oil to collect and run back.



Had to cut a notch in the seat pan to keep from pinching the hose.


Pretty simple. Just makes me feel better to have a filter on it. The Honda "krazy straw" thing works (I guess) but this seems like cheap insurance.

Cheers, Jeff.

Gasmask bags $9,99

French bags from army/navy surplus store, leather and rivits.
This is how far I got today, A little more tweaking and I'll put them through some rigous testing.







Just had a look on line at wolfman tank panniers they are 79.99...
Their front fender tool pack is 24.95...cheap enough.

So I finally dug into my leaky top end. Tomorrow, when I wake up, I'm going to drop the top end off at the machine shop to have them check tolerances and give it all a bath in their parts washer. I'm a little worried as there was a bit of play in the piston pin, and also there is a little bit of wiggle from the connecting rod. I'm working in a dimly lit carport, with minimal tools, so I really don't think I'll be doing the bottom end myself. I have a video that is loading from my phone right now that I will post showing the play in the connecting rod. Worst case... I live at the top of a hill, and at the bottom of the hill is a small motorcycle shop who I've been buying chain lube and whatnot from, which appears to have competent people working for it.

Anyways, I'll be ordering some parts soon, and I was wondering what spark plug people are running. The Honda parts fiches have five or so to choose from, and I don't know much about these bikes, so I'm open to suggestions.

When the pics/video finally load I'll post them up here so you guys can tell me if my bottom end is screwed.

Is that JBweld or something?

Did it work?

How 'cold' a spark plug you should run has mostly to do with outside temperatures and elevation I believe, I just went with the NGK plug my local dealer recommended me, I can;t check right now which one that was, sorry

Boom,

that side to side play is normal as is the small play on the wrist pin.
