  1. I gues you can, allthough getting that circlip that holds the piston and spring in place can be tricky... Whilst you have to bleed the whole system again, and the risk of having brake fluid drip on precious painted parts, you might be in better control to take the MC off the bars and make the rebuild a bench job. Also gives you a better visual on cleaning the piston area and getting the spring/piston and seals in right.. Juist a thought..
  2. On the VF series, from a seated position: Front left is #2 Front right is #4 Rear left is #1 Rear right is #3 On the carbrail #4 is the one carb where the throttle cables attaches to. That #4 is the carb where all the other carbs have to be synched to...
  3. I have two of those, and SS wire....
  4. When you're done.. Every dickhead whants to own it...
  5. Now put on some safetywire on those bolts to get the real performance look..
  6. Option one: Get a used valve and lap the surface to match the valve seat.. Option two: get a good used replacement on the cilinder head.. I do have used valves... I do have complete heads with lapped valves and new seals installed.. I killed two engines on the conrods done to racing. But both engines had their head work done.. They are good.. Let me know if interested.. ( A whole head would be a killer on the shipment costs i think)
  7. Wiring harnes is different. '86 models have an extra pick-up on the cam that is wired seperately to the CDI. Also there is a seperate Yellow/Green wire coming from the CDI box. This wire is responsible for the tach signal and triggering the fuel pump. The '86 has a 6 pin, a 4 pin, a 2 pin plug and a spearate wire on the CDI unit. On the '87 the fuel pump relay is triggered by the red/yellow wire from coil #4. The yellow /green still is the tacho signal wire, but has a different signal and doesn't trigger the fuel pump relay. The '87 has two 6 pin connectors on the CDI.
  8. Barely 12V at idle ???
  9. Before opening this topic, I prepare myself...Just want you to know that I've laid out a stack of paper towels over the key board to keep it from shorting out from all the drool. Wuv it.
  10. JMHO, the Laser set does have a better look then the BOS cannisters. However... These BOS cans look good... I would have changed the link pipes so the cannisters would follow the line of the of the rear cowl... They are just a bit steap to me currently... Crap... That Vid I once entered is showing on every entry... How do I ged rid of it ??
  11. Almost.. Directly: What a fool gives for it.. So what a fool is willing to pay.. Two years ago we bought three VF's.. One was in excellent condition, just needed a service.. Payed $500 for it/ Second was a runner in similar condition as yours, payed $200 Third one was a non runner with a lot of stuff broken, got it for $100. If it was a fully faired FII, yes it would go up in price.. But not the $1500. Or it should be e realy nice one in excellent condition..
  12. Just another vid.. During the test phase at our home playground... Sounds almost more like a two stroke to me..
  13. Just the stock collector and some open baffles... If not mistaken, they are some old cannisters from a XS500.. Chopped and gutted... As a joke, we bought some aluminum HRC decals and put it on the cannisters.. At at least three racing events. at the paddock people were asking how we obtained these HRC silencers.. Don't get me wrong, but with that original collector box, it don't matter what kind of baffle you put on it.. It's just right... If you convert it into a 4 into 1, or either a 4 into 2 it changes the whole powerband of the engine.. To me, it narrows it... The original box was well designed by Honda in my opinion..
  14. Not too bad for street legal tires on a Mickey mouse track with no banking..
