Re: Ontario to British Columbia - Second '85 LTD

Ernest,

Curious as to your normal drive time and mileage for an average day on the LTD? My drive time starts when I leave X and stops when I reach Y. Myself I prefer early departure and early retire.

Thanks

Re: Starts runs and wont start again sometimes

Regarding pulse generators, mine still has OE with 66,000 miles. I think it's luck of the draw, knock on wood!!!

Re: Starts runs and wont start again sometimes

This is a wild shot but, your description is what a bike will do if the "kill" switch was thrown. May find the contacts in the switch need cleaning. When you have this 'no start', try flipping the switch a few times and/or wiggling it to make the contacts work.

Re: Sticky Clutch ?

What type oil and how long since changing? The only time the clutch wasn't working on mine the stealer didn't change the oil and it was like coal color (normal is a tea color, when oil is due for change); or when I replaced the clutch line and it wasn't bled properly (did it again and got the air ou...

Re: Carb slide springs

Per the Honda service manual there is no specification for the springs. In the fuel section when disassembled or assembled they make no mention of inspecting these, at all. If it was me, I'd want all the springs the same length, but maybe they're not supposed to be? I've not torn into the carbs so t...

Re: Clutch Bleeding problem.

Get a SpeedBleeder ( http://www.speedbleeder.com/ ). On the 1200, all 3 brake calipers and the clutch use the same part number. Can anyone tell me which part number to order? I have not pulled mine out yet... figure I will simply replace them with these. I installed P/N - SB8125L They work great, I...

Re: replacing timing belts

As an added note; while you have the access to the water pump end (hose is off), you may want to check the end of the water pump for side to side and down to up play. You shouldn't have any wiggle, if you have wiggle, you may want to consider putting a new one in (or rebuild), while you're that far :)

Re: rear trunk dimensions

SilverDave, thanks! I'd just been thinking of how I was going to get the volume of the trunk. Reason is that the 2018 gave the sizes and I wanted to compare, but didn't find the information in anything I have. Before I got carried away, a guy posted a review and commented that two full face helmets ...

Re: rear trunk dimensions

It's not a real rectangle, but here's what I measured

Bottom width 24"
Bottom (front to rear) 9"
Middle (front to rear) above intrusions, 14"
Height (approximately due to 2 halves) 12" ; bottom half 7", top half 5"

Hope it helps, maybe look for a soft sided cooler :?:

Check to see if the 'headset' button was pushed. It will turn off the speakers and turn on the headsets. Push the button to go back to speakers. After that punt :lol:
