It's a shame for all that extra work, shouldn't they warn you in advance before moving?

All Technical Issues / Re: 1987 Honda hurricane 750 CDI

If after 3 months they still aren't sure which part they need, my first search would be for a real mechanic. Finding parts can take some time but diagnosing the problem should be a matter of hours, not months! Essentially any combustion engine needs fuel and air in the right mix, spark at the right moment and compression. It should be quite easy to find out what is missing to get the bike running!

Are you definitely sure it is the CDI you need and not a pulse generator or ignition coil?
Pulse generators are far more often known to to be at fault, because they live in a hot and dirty environment, near the crankshaft.

If it is the CDI you need, try a search on google or ebay, I see several parts at for instance
The part# for the CDI is 30400-mm4-000 .
I have also heard that the cdi for the CBR1000F 1987/88 will work on the 750 Hurricane, although I never had the chance to verifie that myself.

On our homepage under 'technics' you can find the parts manual, be it in Japanese, and on lots of info can be found too, they even seem to have a cdi for sale, but at a staggering price.....
Please let us know how you are getting on, it can be of interest for lots of other bikers around the world!

Hi Serina and welcome.
When you search in our posthistory you'll find there are several ozzies who were members here at some time, which indicates that there should be more Hurricanes over there as you think.

 :thumbs: That is good advise,, if it can be taken apart there is a good chance the parts, like that membrane, are similar to those used in other bikes, and therefor better obtainable than the tap itself!
And as Clive has already bypassed the tap temporarily, he can take it apart without disabling the bike.

I think the membrane would be difficult to make yourself.
Wouldn't this part be (more) available in used condition in Japan?
No longer available is what you get at all parts suppliers, and I tried many!

That's more or less what I suggested too, at least you can ride.
It seems this is one of the few parts specific for the CBR750, I can't find it in any other bike database, so
I have initiated a parts search at several parts websites, if you put your e-mail in your profile they can reach you directly....

That is a difficult one, I haven't been able to find that part for any other bike.
To be honest, I wonder what would happen if you went directly from fuelcock to carbs with a fuel line, on the very similar CBR1000F, with the same fuelcock, there is only a fuelpump inbetween that and the carbs....
I'll keep looking, and will put the schematic on here, maybe someone else knows more. Number 11 you're looking for.

Good to hear all is allright, and ofcourse the CBR is better.
Mine is 31 years old now, is over 321.000 km on the clock and still going strong.
Keep on riding!

@Xpd, do you have any troubles with excessive amounts of water?
As far as I know you live in the danger zone.....

Maybe, maybe not, Berra, the TS, lives in Sweden, and the riding season is short there.
So in the 5 years since posting he had only some 25 months to ride, he still might have his Hurricane winkywinky
I still have the CBR i bought in 1989....

All Technical Issues / Re: Adjusting carb mixture setting
« on: May 03, 2018, 15:22:52 PM »
Do you have a replacement K&N filter in the standard Honda housing or 4 separate round filters?
For a replacement filter you usually won't have to alter the mixture screw settings.
In my opinion 3,5 turns out is very (too?) far, Honda recommends 1 and threequarter turn out, a large difference!

smile1004kno behind your tachometer you have a second small Cdi  unit its charging the timing of your spark after 5.500 rpm...if it has a problem you will fell like its working with 2 cylinders after 5.500 rpm.I hope I helped!!!
Hi Dawid, I think you mean the restrictor that for the Japanese market limits the topspeed to 180km/h, unfortunately that is actuated via the speedometer, and has nothing to do with the number of revs the engine makes.
