  1. Congrat on your "new old bike" 😀 I don't get any sound but it's normal with some rattle from the clutch basket. At idle, in neutral and clutch released. Disappears when clutch lever is pulled. If this is the case I would not worry about it. It happens because of wear in the grooves on the clutch basket. Friction plates can wriggle and that results in the rattling sound.
  2. Check the colors - short black with black/blue. ignition on. Relay is located next to pump - has a 3 wire connector - last wire is red/yellow
  3. The fuel cut off relay make sure the pump only can run when engine is turning - the pump will not pulse (run) before you hit start. To test pump disconnect relay and short black blue wires (color from memory)
  4. A few more but I agree not a bike problem... maybe for use with an old Ferrari V12 with a bunch of carbs 🙂 Honda CBX, Benelli, Kawasaki Z1300... and a few other oddities (race bikes)
  5. Yes, I know... not a VFR, hell, not even a V4 but an I6... and Japanese language... at least it's a Honda... this gotta be an engine equivalent of a x-rated show 🙂 Fascinating to watch the total disassembly of the engine... From a time with flat/philips head screws and nuts... in the end the whole crank is removed with pistons still attached... tiny tiny pistons...
  6. If tach zeros forget about non electrical issues. You say you checked the ground. It can be a bad positive connection too... broken wire, corroded connection, short etc. I would check all primary wires as first step - disconnect or disassemble to clean and check alle the way to ignition switch. when it died completely, did the oil light come on? Did the starter turn at once?
  7. I have a consistent 1.1 mm on a 1996. I was surprised about the number - will look again in the morning with better light
  8. I installed LED lights in my cluster and thought they gave off a sick amount of light... I sprayed the LED's with a thin coat of black spray paint - that worked well... almost like shades... 😎
  9. I checked my voltage at about 5600 RPM - while driving, light off, USB charger off.... 14.3-4 volt
  10. 90-93: RC36/1 94-97: RC36/2
  11. Hi Grum - too much beer last night ... you photographed 2 new sprockets...! Visible wear could easily be lens distortion... And I thought everything get "blasted" with all the sand you have out there... Do you use link or rivet?
  12. I need a 3rd gen too... I really want one again - they are still nice looking in a more classic way than the 4th. Of course it does not look like bikes today but for something 29 years old... The build quality and materials are not found in any bike today... of course part of that is a really heavy bike - is't about 5-10 kg heavier than the CBR 1000RR, which actually is a heavy bike too... I look forward to a bunch of workshop photos Take care and thanks for sharing
  13. Welcome to the forum! That's the nice things with these older bikes - not too much black box going on. Good old fashion skills go along way 🙂 Please let's so some pictures...
  14. Great - I hope they are in good shape! Don't throw away the broken one - it can still serve a purpose... it can be taken apart and measured. VFRD should create a category or something for old eol parts...
  15. Your best option is sourced from a junkyard. This would still be old diaphragms tho Honda used them for bikes up to about 2007. I'm not sure the need is sufficient to make new ones as demonstrated by the past fizzles. I think we need to preserve old ones before we are screwed.
