Re: 86 aspy SEi engine replacement.

I agree with Scott, that colour green is Kawasakiish. Need more black pinstripng on the rear bags, shelter and side panels to tone down the green and really make it "pop".

Re: Cheap oil for a crankcase flush??

If you are going to flush by changing oil and starting the engine, make sure it's oil for a wet clutch. Wet clutch systems don't like friction modifiers.

Re: fog lights

Thanks again Red! To ensure the lights only come on with ignition on, where would be the best circuit to use. Also, using a fuse panel like the posted pic, any issues with seat interference. The one in the mounting pic looks different, and the square style seems to be a little bulky for that positi...

There's only two types of regulator/rectifiers (RR), shunt and series. A MOSFET is an internal electronic component used in modern shunt and series RRs. No such unit as a MOSFET RR. A MOSFET replaces the older electronic internal components, and has been around for a long time. The name MOSFET has c...

Re: Poorboy Pulley Options

I am going to have to look at the install. Shouldn't matter which 1800 rad fan as long as you connect it so that it pulls the air through the rad. Install it so that it is high enough to just miss the crank pulley and allow for a belt change. I do believe I attached the 1800 fan to the 1200 metal br...

A rad fan option is one from an 1800. I installed one, works well, a bit more low profile than the 1200 rad fan.

I had one on my 2012 V-Strom, sold, that I took off and may have lying around. It works quite well, but I prefer a readout - analogue or digital. I put a digital voltage meter on my 1500 - since sold, but had it wired into a relay activated accessory fuse block. Used the Fuzeblock FZ1 because of spa...

The '85 and '86 fuel injected models are not very well understood. The more info you have regarding parts, what can be iused, alternatives to some of the more scarce parts, the easier it is to make a decision on whether to own or not. These two models are some 36/37 years old. Finding parts for olde...

If so, I have a new set of the OEM water hoses, Randack's carb kits, new carb insulators - carb to engine and a few other items for a 1500 engine.

Is the injections system on the 1200 Limited reliable? Why did Honda stepped back to carbs in later models? thx! The ECU (computer) that runs the fuel injection was very early technology.

Re: Head gasket and valve seal replacement question

Lapping the valves is to remove any carbon/crud build up on the valve seat.

Exhaust port gaskets - make sure all the old ones are removed. First time I did mine, there were three gaskets in each port.
