New project folks: a friends bike that hasn’t run in about 5 years.

Already found rodents, eaten wires, and a ruined air filter. Can’t keep a good wrencher down lol

I love old school sport bikes. Pull the tank, and the airbox is right there waiting for you to be removed.

This bike is much different. Pull the rear cowling off. Remove the rear inner fender, remove the left rear shock, Reg/rec, ECU, starter solenoid, battery, battery tray, then finally the rear wheel. Then the airbox comes out the rear.

And the snorkels from the box to the carbs fall off because they were not installed properly from years ago. But it’s the only way to get these items clean. Can’t wait to see what the carbs present. Hopefully there already spotless :idunno:

A good project to keep you busy over the winter mate, doesn't look too bad on the outside but I dare say that will change lol
Yup, I’m waiting for this to go bad any day now lol

This one will be easy. Some tires, carb clean, for seals and a test ride. Sounds simple, right? :crap: :hmm:

Put some time into the carbs. They were cleaner than I expected. That’s a good thing. Less hard parts to try and find. And while I’m cleaning the carbs, might as well clean the pistola as well :eyebrows:

Also got a bunch of new stainless screws, as the OE ones were buggured up pretty good from prior abuse. And the rebuild begins.

Do you have a solvent tank or something?
I don’t. I wish I did. I waste a lot of time using cans of carb clean, q-tips, scotch brite pads, etc. I fill a bucket with Dawn, use the green AND blue Simple Green, and scrub a lot. I have a set of Honda jet cleaner rods, and if I have a small passage that the smallest won’t fit in, I use a single strand of braided copper wire. I could really do with a small parts washer, or ultrasonic tank.

What I do have, that I use every now and then, is the service department at my local Honda dealer :eyebrows: As I used to manage it.
