Re: Jis screwdriver

As I've had read in many sites, they state that all japanese bikes have JIS screws. Those are for threaded holes.
Also that Phillips screws were designed to work on sheet metal, where the driver must slip before the screw may overpull and strip the threads.
Those Vessel tools are fantastic!

Re: How screwed am i

+ 1 on Ct1500 comment. If it were me, I'll apply some heat to the casing, and using a visegrip (being much secured) try to loosen it; first a little wiggle back and forth.
By being a machinist most of my life I may say that trying to drill it free hand is an impossible mission.

Re: Won't start

It depends how far you stripped it out; by your comment, if no head nor brake light I would say to check first at the ignition key switch, they're powered from the main 30 amp fuse, loose contact there could be the problem.
I'm including a circuit diagram for you.

Re: No rear brake light

That´s the problem whenever they made mods to wiring. By looking at the circuit I can see that turn signals and brake are energized by same lines protected with a 15 Amp fuse, not a 5 Amp. and while in park there shoudn't be power to rear brake light, so I suspect that you have either some crossed w...

Re: GL1000 Tranmission output shaft RPM

The red line in a GL1000 is around 7.5K, so with such a low RPM probably the 1000 trany wont do much good.
Here are the specs of Gl1000.

Thank you Scott for the info; I also answered this post on the 20th but in different thread (mi bad) "1994 Honda Pacific Coast" instead of the actual one.
In the end, we were able to retrieve the HID ballast and replace the lamp with a regular one, he's happy finally :D
