Had a lot of crud in my tank after some 34 years. There was rust - not as much as I thought there might be (took tank out and cleaned it), but befo...

Here's the full post: Fuel pressure with key on bike not started - 34 to 38 PSI Fuel pressure bike started - 28 to 34 PSI Not much can be done to the OEM injectors except having them cleaned and flow tested.

Re: 1200 SEI Fuel Filter

This Gold Fuel Filter almost fits in the standard GL1200 fuel filter bracket, and is much cheaper than Honda OEM : https://www.napacanada.com/en/p/NGF3011 SilverDave The bike in question is a fuel injected model. The fuel filter recommended above is probably not a good choice for the SE-i with fuel...

Re: 1200 SEI Fuel Filter

The short answer is yes, there is directional flow. I use a Beck Arnley 043-0897. It doesn't have any arrows, but does have it stamped by the outlet.

Re: 86 SEi/LTD igniter ?

The igniters on our bikes have four wires. Earlier 1100s and 1000s have 5 wires because they have a pick up coil, our bikes do not. There are spark igniters from Procom for the 1100s and 1000s. From what I have been able to discern is that the fifth wire, blue in colour does not need to be hooked up...
