  1. I have had a couple 5th Gen water pump weep hole leaks. On the most recent I actually believe that it was only the cover O-Ring leaking, not the main seal on the shaft. I'm nearly certain I could have got away with only replacing the cover O-Ring instead of the entire pump assembly. Of course I only saw that after I replaced it and took a close look at the previous one. Perhaps even the one before it was the same situation. Of course I have no idea what the 8the Gen pump looks like or if it's similar. I would drain it, and remove and inspect the pump closely before buying anything. My issue is I like to have exactly what I want to replace on hand before I start anything. But in my previous case I believe I would have been better off doing what I suggested.
  2. You have two bleeders on thecrear caliper. So whichever one releases the piston(s) is the culprit. I haven’t had linked brakes in a while, but the SMC operates the center piston? I can’t remember which bleeder. Could also have the rubber line delaminating inside and blocking return flow. I would also disassemble and clean thecrear caliper. If the O-rings are not torn I generally reuse them.
  3. Nice work! I also like taking brake calipers apart and cleaning.
  4. I was always told if it hangs up on the way down the carbs need to be synced.
  5. Come to think of it, PM SebSpeed. He might have one off a project bike he’s doing.
  6. Look up 2001 part. I had that happen on another part for my ‘99. Wasn’t available on parts fishe for ‘99, but was on ‘01. I don’t think I kept my PCV valve when I changed my forks, but if I find it you can have it for shipping. It’s bound to be on eBay though. Those breakers generally take it down to every last nut and bolt.
  7. I would flush and bleed the hydraulic line first, followed by examining the rod to be sure it is straight and not got anything causing it to hang up.
  8. Same with me. I’ve invested too much money and time (and blood and broken bones) to give it up for pennies on the dollar. At some point it’ll get cleaned up, fluids drained, and sit in the living room. I’ve sold 10 or 11 other bikes and care not a wit what their fates were.
  9. If you’re in there, replace them all with LED. I have a list at home of the sizes needed I can post later if needed. I use white behind the dials, blue behind the LCD and same color as the lens for all the indicator/idiot lights. The Fi light I left incandescent because the LED comes on half lit all the time otherwise.
  10. Mason City Honda. Ask for Keith and tell him you are a VFRD member. He gives us a pretty nice discount.
  11. I heard a rumor you could seal it off and pressurize it. Doesn’t work... I’ve had at least 3 tanks on my ‘99. I lost count.
  12. I can’t remember if I did the valve clearance check before or after I swapped covers. Ever since Sebspeed started making clear clutch covers we’ve all been telling people they are interchangeable for all 800s, even the RC45. If I recall the part# hasn’t changed, so I’m not sure exactly what could have happened to yours.
