  1. Hi Everybody, I picked up this 1992 RC36i last spring in Connecticut (USA). It’s not exactly a cream puff so I’m trying to bring it up to a decent standard as cheaply as possible. To do that, I've been scrounging around online and you all have been guiding me some too, so thank you very much for that. By now I have a few insights and experiences of my own that might actually help somebody else. Time to get out of the shadows. Here’s what I have so far. The bike has just over 25,000 miles as far as I know. I am at least fourth owner and its history is long lost along with various odds and ends off the bike. The guy I got it from seemed honest and funny but he had some curious theories of backyard mechanics so it's taken me a little while to learn to trust the ride. I'm still a little worried about the long term effects of some of his theories but so far, so good. I’ve ridden about 1200 miles without major surprises. I've also encountered the usual gen3 issues. When I took it on, the bike had newish tires and chain and battery, the upgraded regulator/rectifier, and the starter clutch is supposed to be new too. The engine oil is the color of honey. It needed a few things right away and, as you'll see, it's still a work in progress. The cosmetics really really need help. Look closely at the photograph and you'll spot plenty of issues. And that’s a picture of the good side. I haven’t decided exactly what to do yet, but I’m considering options. You are welcome to make suggestions here and I might even follow some up. And I can tell you all my experiences so far. The few things right away for the bike... Front Brake Switch It needed a front brake switch. These are $16 at Honda or $3 from China for a generic one on Ebay, or maybe it was Amazon. I’m trying out the $3 version. Sorry Honda. The one I got is a pretty cheap construction with a thin plastic shell, but it does fit and work as advertised so far. I check it before every ride. If it doesn’t last, I know where to find the real one. Or I can get 4 more cheapos… Krator Mirrors I picked up the Krator replacement mirrors too, also from Ebay (...or Amazon). They’re fine. The bike came with carbon look mirrors that were a mess. I know lots of you prefer newer styling and you get rid of the boots. I’m content with the original look. The Krator fittings are plastic, not metal, and the boots are kind of a fiddly fit on the proximal end. But you can tighten down the collar so that with a little patience you can get the boot to stay in place. These cost $22. Honda OEM? Um, more than $22. I needed proper keys. The bike came with a single cut key that looked like a car key made at the DIY store. I had to get the key code from under the gas cap and there is a service that’ll make you the right key from the code. Once more to Ebay. Once more cheaper than the dealer. I don’t have anything against my local dealer. Not at all. I feel bad not supporting the dealer more. But jeez louise, I just can't afford it. I wouldn’t even mind paying a little more, especially if I could just walk in and out with the parts I need. Unfortunately, not only is it expensive, but they have to order most things from their warehouse anyway. So you still have to wait three or four days. I’m just sayin. So far I’ve had good results from all Ebay orders. I'm not thinking it's better than OEM. But some things are good enough. There's more to add, but that's it for today. Stay tuned.
