I'm not really too worried. Regardless of the bike I got, it was most likely that I'd be doing about 80% of the things I will be doing. I like starting mostly new with any car/bike purchase (in terms of maintenance schedule). I can't really trust the maintenance schedule of the previous person.I’ll suggest you do a thorough estimate of parts that you might need to replace and time investment before proceeding any further. Projects like this aren’t for the front of heart and I get the impression you’d be better served with a newer bike.
I didn't see much for '93 cbr900rr'. Great deals from Everett Powersports PARTS IN STOCK | eBay storesI’ve just bought a genuine CBR600 petcock assembly from Everett Powersports in the USA, they’re on eBay and seem to stock a lot of OEM stuff for our era of bikes. Price, even including a customs charge was much cheaper than here in the U.K.
I believe it is necessary, because of the way it articulates with the fuel valve. There is an O-ring around the outside of it that seals it to the inside of the threaded tap out of tank.I didn't see much for '93 cbr900rr'. Great deals from Everett Powersports PARTS IN STOCK | eBay stores
I'll probably buy off ebay if I have to. My question is: Is the fuel strainer going to be necessary if I have a fuel filter? From looking at the fuel lines, it doesn't seem like there is an inline fuel filter but maybe I haven't been paying attention.
Yet, there are these parts online for a fuel filter.
Well, that post sounds very encouraging! Keep us updated every step of the way!atriot::thumb:Turning the engine finally. Got confused about what was the crank cover. Started unbolting what I think is the clutch cover and I was like, "How does this work? Shouldn't the crankshaft be ... over there????"
And then after a short moment I looked it up in the manual and was like, "Oh, yeah, this makes more sense..." Removing the crankshaft hole cap after applying some PB blaster and letting it sit (it was *on*). Then turned the crank with a 14mm deep socket on a 9" long 1/2" wrench.
Anyway, turned it over. It didn't take "excessive" force but it did take some force with a 10" long wrench. Probably from not being lubed up but also from it almost always being in a compression stroke on some cylinder. It isn't 100% equal force when turning it. There are some times when it is easier but I think that's just from going to hitting the hardest part of the compression stroke to hitting the easiest part of the power stroke. Yes, should've put some oil down the cylinders but it looks like it takes quite a bit of work to get access to the spark plugs and be able to drop oil down the holes. This was quicker and it was just to see if it could even turn. It does turn. You can even hear air exit the valves.
