Electric Starter with a "noise",,look what i found!!!

Post by gervais »



hi all,i am continuing working on my Wing here,i just dismantle the electric starter and wanted to show you what i found inside,,,discusting!!!
you dont see it but there was water inside the stater because of the seal between the electric motor and the little reducer and the 2 gears
so i used gasket for head cover engine to replace the old oring from there and it works.

i change the grease ,or what it was,by Wynn's Syntech grease good from -40 celisius to 120 i think.i have been using this grease all around and NEVER been happier.

i would recommand checking yours for sure,,
i have 95,000 km on mine and after that it is the timing belt,,,
i have found no information at what km it is recommanded to change it???

Smaller 4 cylinder cars are approximately 100K Kms - give or take, good guideline for GW timing belts. Age can also be a factor. Too much snow on the ground where you are so a change before riding season would be good.

well
on my GW this is a OEM Honda that is installed,i have found the T070 (i am not sure i have here the good number) on RockAuto website week ago and baught a set so i will changed them.
i have been able too have someone here machined a pulley for an external alternator,i am thinking of also installing her now even if i repaired my voltage/rectifier bugs that i add ,,,

i wonder sine i will do a hole in the front cover of the timing belt and the moovement of the pulley inside and the strap if there is change that water would go "inside" when i would be on the road??? do you know if anyone had problems??

anyhow yes we have snow this year but temperature is doing some yoyo ,,today +3 and tomorrow we have -20 from meteomedia!!!!

Have rode mine in rather torrential rains and no water gets inside the timing belt covers.

If you install the external alt mod with the internal rotor/stator assembly and RR unit still installed make sure you isolate the OEM alternator system completely.

well
Ernest,i am thinking about just installing the pulley i have here in case my OEM alternator blow again,
i baught this bike used and the guy told me he has it changed in a Honda garage but i did not "open" the engine to look if it is true so i want to have some cards in my pocket in case!!!

i will try to find an alternator here in a scrap yard from a 3 cylinder swift from suzuki but they are rare like hell,,,in fact they are all rusted
long time ago in the province with our climat.

there was somewhere a parts numbers for the radiator hoses,,longer one when you are doing this mod !!!!

Hi :
I think I used a Napa 7733 radiator hose cut into two parts as the rad hose
( If you have a NAPA dealer near you ..)

Oh yes
the electric starter is back in place and running no1,
i baught on Ebay a rebuilt kit that ,at the end,i never used .
My electric brushes nees a cleaning and the were used by 1/8 maybe 3/16 inch so i did not changed them,
Bearings were ok too,i put some anti friction oil inside the rear bearing near the bushes,,it was sticky a bit and after the Wynn's treatment it was ok.

i put it back in place and changed the muffler gasket too during the occasion,the "donut" between the headers and the muffler.

now it's the timing belt
