Letís know what you find!

Bullet with the UCE engine / Re: Stripped forward drain plug hole
« Last post by hpwaco on February 18, 2018, 08:10:30 pm »
Had to use one of those rubber plugs on my 74 Honda 350 Four  years ago cause the drain plug was stripped when I got it.  Worked great.

That's my question.  How do you tell the difference between the old and the new WD 40?   The can I've had for awhile says "flammable".

"Postie bike?"...Hmmm...Oz-dweller detected.  [Checking profile...] Sure enough: hailing from the land of "bikies" and "truckies" (instead of "bikers" and "truckers").  Well, my hunch is your Sheila (?) is gonna LOVE that added punch of a 500, and that it'll prove well worth the bother of tending to that clutch. You did well.

Those little Hondas really are fab though. Although we're probably all well aware of the stupid old adage, "Fat girls are like mopeds. They're fun to ride, but you don't want anyone seeing you", some of the finest times on the road I've ever had were astride a nice old borrowed Honda 50 Step-Through (sometimes called a "Cub" or "Passport") in and around Chepstow in Wales. It's a close cousin of your gal's old CT 110--only maybe half as powerful, but with a really pleasant little leading-link front suspension. Anyone who's never tried one shouldn't miss the opportunity, should it present itself. Especially velocity-challenged Bulleteers, who'll soon feel right at home. Same thing goes for gals with a little meat on their bones, if you're a free agent and so inclined. They too quite often have their own virtues.

Previously she rode a Honda CT 110 (postie bike) with auto clutch  so she was  worried about the  manual clutch and the weight of the C5 . Her first ride went well, no problem adapting to the clutch  and she was surprised how well it handles and  corners. Unfortunately its raining today on her day off work , she was really looking forward to her second ride with a little more confidence.

Continental GT Cafe Racer / Re: It is the fuel pump.

The thing is solid state, and I had no problems with it before. With no power to the plug, I'm assuming there may be power to the fuel pump, but not to the rest of the ignition system including the fuel injector. Must wait till I get back. Driving me nuts.

Continental GT Cafe Racer / Re: Fork Gaiters

Thanks for the Liquid Tape tip Bilgemaster.  Will check it out - as you said lots of uses for it.   Unhappily, as far as I know,  the GT fork tubes don't have a drain plug and must be pulled to drain the oil.  So I'll try to get new gaiters and then pull & drain the tubes.   Did a quick eBay search for 41mm gaiters and found a couple.  I think Hitchcock's also has them.
