  1. Cold Starting Problem

    Grum, Thanks for the comments, you may have solved my problem. First, the Fuel Pump is working fine and when I have this problem to get it started I turn it off, turn it on open the throttle ... even read the manual. Let me tell you about my commute, the first 24,000 miles it was 17 miles each way. Now I warm it up (because of the starting issue) then drive the whole one mile to work. Coming home, I start it up and drive home, put it away. I will let it get to temp and hopefully this will be the solution. It's been raining lately so I have not been on it, will update if I continue to have problems. Thanks again
  2. Cold Starting Problem

    Starts when it is warm. It can site for 6 hours and start normally, idle speed is 1200-1300,no work has been done, and fuel pump primes normally as well. No other issues just this starting when it sits for more then a day.
  3. On my 2008 with 28,000 miles I sometimes have problems starting it when cold. Cranks fine but won't catch, after a few attempts it will eventually start but I noticed it is at idle RPM. Seems like it is not setting up high RPMs to start although after a second or 2 it will set a higher RPM until it gets to running temp. The FI light does not flash any errors the battery is good. Any debugging or solutions suggestions?
  4. I worked the Redwood Valley fire on Monday will be back out next week. I was concerned about our Mendocino, Napa, and Sonoma members - Brian please update us.
  5. Ecn Memorial Ride - NorCal / Sierras - July 22

    Sad topic and a strange coincidence that July 22nd is my birthday as well. Is this a requirement? And since it is my birthday I have made other plans, will miss the ride.
  6. PCH-SR128 Ride January 22

    Can't join up with you this time the wife and I have plans in Oakland but you still might see us on 128 (if a blue Honda Crosstour flashes head lights that will be me). I did tow a boat over 128 on Wednesday, the road is open and in good shape after all the storms. Enjoy the ride see you next time.
  7. PCH-SR128 Ride January 22

    With the predicted storm coming in on Wednesday 128 is likely to close. Also, there is an 60% chance of rain on Saturday and 80% on Sunday. The 28th-29th maybe a better choice. I will keep following the thread and try to join in depending on weather.

    I'm in Mendocino and always up for a ride. From here the 20 to Willits 101 to Ukiah 253 to Boonville 128 to 1 loop is a fun ride.
  9. I am watching the weather closely. My plan was to drive to Healdsburg late Friday then start out Saturday early, rain is forecast Friday afternoon. Don't want two rides in the rain. I will text you Friday if my plans change.
  10. Damn it's true - check out Bones Facebook page for all the bad news. https://www.facebook.com/bonesroadhousegualala
  11. I am planning to spend the night in Healdsburg Friday so will start out with you. I will head to Mendocino at the end of 128.
  12. Bay Area Roll Call Ride 2016

    May 7th works for me if you are heading towards Mendocino. Heal up Jeff, I used to commute the 880 daily so know the craziness.
  13. Need Brakes

    Finally getting back to this question. Thanks for the input I would prefer OEM pads but the closest dealer is 2 hours away. Are there any online dealers to buy Honda pads? Thanks ..
  14. Bay Area Roll Call Ride 2016

    80% chance of rain on Saturday
  15. Bay Area Roll Call Ride 2016

    Either route I will join up somewhere leaving from Mendocino.
