neutral switch is bad? its a one pin connector like the thermastat, believe its a pretty simple switch.
like the grey wheels!
Plus 1 on the wheels, the whole package looks really sharp! Any pictures (before and after) of your plastic weld repairs?
Belate :welcome: to the zoo from across the pond :wave:
Nice Score on the bike :thumb:
Thx for the comments
Just got back from series of road tests, it's really comfy and a bit quicker than i thought it would be. Got to resist the urge to do any more cleaning and tidying now as i need to ride it for a couple of weeks in all weathers.
Cheers for the heads up on the switch, i'll give it a look.
Mini update, ive since had to replace rr and stator, build new heavy duty stator wire loom, build own vfrness an fit new battery. It now starts, runs charges and stays cooler on rr.
Also ditched rear pegs and centre stand and cut rear guard down...
Nooooooooice bike mate :thumb:
I got caught in the rain today with mine, I dried oot enough were I did'nt have to change my clothes. I ordered new oem fork seals as I got a leak on one leg. Anyway, with the new grips on the bike, it rides pretty much like my other one does. Interesting, upon disassmebly when I installed the fork springs, the bike was missing both spacers, had a funny spring with close windings towards the bottome. Maybe a progressive spring? But to not have a spacer? Thats weird. Front end is nice with new springs/spacers and 7 weight oil. Now I have to do the "drill" over because of the leaking seal.
I thought they all had progressive springs? Mine certainly had when i pulled them apart.i've probly got a pic of the internals somewhere from the build if it helps.
I got my originals from the 91 and compared them, (saved from 20 years ago) they were a whisper longer. Front end feels nice now and can work on removing the last bit of untouched strip of my tyres. New bike is a 93, basically same chit. Played with the fuel mixture screws, tyring 2 turns oot instead of 2.5. Easy enough to return or change.
You guys get the weather to use the whole tyre! It pisses down here for 3/4 of the year.
The neutral light is your diode is shot. there is a diode inline of the neutral switch that sends power to the light if the trans is in neutral but if the diode is gone the light will always be on except when the clutch leaver is pulled. Its a small black box (3mm x2mm). Part #16, they call it a rectifier http://www.cmsnl.com/honda-vfr750f-1990-usa_model1124/partslist/F++28.html#results
I pulled the two wires from the clutch lever switch and blanked them off. Works fine without it.
So i've got it looking roughly how i want it now. Thinking about pulling front legs through a bit for stance and handling but not sure how the handling will take it. It has a bit of a problem with leaning too far on the stand, the angle is VERY far over.
will measure how much fork tube protrudes up through the top. I have a mental brain fart right now as I am on my second bottle of wine. :drinkers:
Did mine earlier. 10mm made sod all difference. Did 1" and it sits and rides much better now.
Mini update, won a standard screen on ebay for fifteen quid, prefer it to the black double bubble one...
Damn, thats a good screen! I was trying to get the last oem one for a gen3 bike a year or so ago, it came and was damaged. I ended up getting a Skidmarx screen. Good quality and optics, my latest project a 93 has a hopelessly disgusting screen. Withoot Ebay, I would have been up a creek withoot a paddle. I am done with parts as it runs good, I would run top end with yah oot in the "everglades" if you were'nt on the other side of the pond ound: Cheers
I got a bunch of those "aqua-trax" black bird ala cbr1100xx large 6mm allen head bolts that are stainless steel. I ended up putting them on this bike, I have some nasty corrosion issues like a cat or a rat was pissing on my swing arm and near the frame. Not gas stains, so its never gona be a beauty queen :sad: but its a good runner, makes me laugh how you can find a 20+ year old motorycle with low miles :thumbsup:
