Can you provide info re pricing and availability ?

....Now if only I hadnt just ordered a stock replacement....
The cover will be much stronger,machined from aircraft-spec billet aluminium.
It will fit all years,and we have moved the oil filler up to the rear,to try and keep it out the dirt,as our bikes always get the OEM filler covered in crud,and is difficult to clean 100% when out on trail/rallies.
Prices will be confirmed once we have machined alloy sample.

Just an Idea and you can make fun of me if you want....Would it be possible to make the cover so that both oil filters were the same size? For me it always seems when I go and get them the only have stock of the one size

No video, but this thread has lots of pictures beginning about page 5 and continues with Uller's tutorial on page 7. I disconnect the fuel line quick disconnect under the seat, remove my Leo Vince, and bottom tank (sub-frame) thru bolt and tip the tank up. Use a funnel with hose to catch most of the fuel. Do this in a well ventilated area as some fuel goes on the shop floor usually. Drop out the fuel pump housing and carefully pull out the pump, lines, and filter.

When I had the same symptoms you did, it was a small leak in the line. Plenty of volume, and no pressure.

Now can you get it back together for ANF this weekend?
I won't have it together this weekend. I did an event yesterday and now I don't have a trailer. I would do ANF anyway if it wasn't for the 12 hour drive. Plus the added insult that you can be sleeping in your bed in 5 minutes.

That garage is full of Hondas. At least 10 if you only count the ones with tires and an engine in the frame. Only 3 if you count >100cc. It's hard to get away from them. Now that you mention it, Last year I had that 750 all loaded up for a trip to Birmingham. It was idling in the drive, I had my helmet on and twisted the throttle to clean it out and the cable snapped. I had to unload it and took the KTM instead. I didn't ride it again until this summer.

Also curious - anyone carry a spare quick connect (fuel line) piece as part of your parts/tool kit? Heard they may prone to failing.


1. I removed the line from the tank to the disconnect.
2. I removed the line from disconnect to injector.
3. I got a piece of line about 30 inches long (don't quote me on the length). This is run from the tank past the injector down to the filter.
4. The piece of line that was removed from the tank/disconnect is now from the filter to the injector.

I hope that helps.

I had 2006 640sm, didn like the uneven ride at "steady" RPM and I could hear all bearings from machine + vibrations.

Hope that smc is better

Mine just did something similar, unpredictable cutting out at idle - turned out to be a dodgy side stand switch/wiring.

Those are the same symptoms mine had and they went away after a fuel pump swap out to the ca-cycleworks pump. Listen for the whirr of your fuel pump when turning the key on. Mine wasn't making the priming noise all the time.
