How was your weekend?
Warmer than yours it seems!! This was Dartmoor in Devon, UK
First the TA, now Jim is selling off spares?
Is the BMW that compelling? Is Honda ownership about to be terminated? Will our hero be seduced by europeans?
I've always had a foot in the old world. My roots are still there. I'm not selling all my Hondas, just the one to make my other one even better. I like my F800GS but it's my two-up ride compared to the AT. The GS as currently configured is way too heavy for any serious offroading as witnessed on this year's Big Dog ride. I only went down twice.
I'm in the mood for a 4-wheeled project anyway. Okay, it's a BMW 2002tii. Honda cars are kind of boring.
Ever tried a NSX?
Haven't come across an NSX project yet. My wallet is not that deep, especially with a senior looking at colleges.
My AT doesn't look like this anymore.
Hi German viewers. Can you see the video from here?:

My AT after a day of fun !
Ok guys, went for a short ride to a bike night and never made it. Bike died like it was running out of gas, push starter motor cranks a few times like normal then dead. No poer at all as if battery has puked and is done. Can not get it to fire pushing it. Push bike to gas station fill with gas and hook to jumper cables bike turns over for a while before firing and then idles fine. Mount up ride toward the house no indicators or lights will work and bike dies completely a mile down the road.
I am pretty sure this is a stator issue or RR it is also called. What say you experts? I have not unload from my truck yet so have not checked anything.
My intention is to unload tomorrow night and then start with the battery and move to the stator and keep moving forward from there... sound good?
FUel pump buy any chance? only say this as if bike is turning over and does start but dies it sound sliek fuel starvation
Likely the rectifier.
It sounds like you were running on only the battery. The jump and restart at the service station recharged the battery a bit and allowed enough to run.
Headlights quickly drain things back down again if there's no power coming in.
If it's daylight, pull the headlight fuses and the bike should run for quite a few miles (YMMV) if the battery is only powering ignition.
I say rectifier because that's the common problem. The actual problem is that electrical power is not being put into the bike from the stator that produces it.
So, the problem can be with the stator, the wiring, the connector plugs, the rectifier and so-on up the line.
Check easy stuff first:
(a) batter terminal connections and all "ground" connections.
(b) the 3-wire connector between the stator and rectifier
(c) condition of battery (will it hold a good charge)
(d) charge rate.....if you charge the battery and get the bike to run, measure voltage across battery terminals while bike is running at idle and then at about 4-5000 rpm (max. output).
We'll go from there............................
Thanks will proceed as prescribed and let you kmow.
Good advice by Ladder. How old is your battery. It may be tired and old.
Once it's up and running you need to test the output of your alternator. If your not savvy with a multimeter....which you will need... then watch the following tutorial. Yes it's for a car however the voltages prescribed are almost identical to our AT's. If you do exactly whats in the vid then you have sucessfully troubleshot your output voltage. Stators rarely fail so i'm betting on your battery or R/R.
great comprehensive tutorial, check this site and DL the PDF
..I have an extra RR as I will most likely do the Mosfet mod
( still in the box, sent to me from PapaPete )
Zega Pro by Touratech.
Are you letting me know so I can get it from you????
front wheel went together nicely, just have to tighten it up and true it.
Rear how ever took 2 hour get tyre off, ended up cutting it off.
spokes all came off but rearis nto building up at all. got thebrake side built but the holes/spokes not matching on sprocket side.
will have take it apart (3rd time) and start over.
black hub and gold rims do look nice
sorry bad pic was getting crawled over buy 2 kittens and 2 dogs
well got them finished after half bottle rum, who says alcohol isnt the way to go.
going drop them into mech next week to true up and fit tyres.
Anyone know why there ar 2 oles drilled right beside eachother? one is valve but other is only 2 spokes up so doubt it is rimlock
Hectoe: Cool vid, thanks for sharing
From Neuquén, Patagonia Argentina, I salute you very cordially. They have friends if anyone comes around here.
