Re: it's a honda

so sad, that so many of those older bikes have less than 2 or 3 thousand miles on them.

folks buy them, play with it for a summer, and put them away, to rot away.

oh, does that one have a Cruise Control :lol:

Re: Voltmeter questions...

pretty much you got it right, as long as, you sequence the wires correctly.

and yes, any relay will do the job just fine. the heavier relays are actually cheaper than the smaller ones, because they sell more of those.

Re: Voltmeter questions...

for a voltmeter, the gauge of the wire is immaterial.
what is important, is the wire's insulation so it won't be penetrated by bumping it with something sharp.

as for a fuse? for a voltmeter, anything over 1/8 amp will be just fine.

Would there be any problem running 18 gauge wire and a like a 3 amp auto style fuse? All the really low amp ones I find seem to be the glass tube type. I've never been a big fan of those.
that will work perfect, and 3 amp ATM fuses are common, as are 2 amp if you wish.

Re: Trailer Buyers Beware

Oklahoma does not register trailers unless you specifically request it....

if it is a Tandem Axle or bigger, yup, they want a tag...

but, if it is a Slant Horse trailer, no tag required.

In that case, I would run 2oz/gallon in every tank for about 3 or 4 tanks.

after that, 2oz/tank as a general WTH maintenance item.

I still do that once in a while, even on my 1800...

if the carbs a bit gunked up, it can eventually dissolve the crud and hopefully it will run like it should. I bought a '94SE with gunked up carbs, should have just cleaned them immediately.
