Users does not mean members only, that is guests/visitors, possibly from all over the world.
And as you probably noticed, i advertise this site where ever i can, for example when there are questions asked on the Hurricane account on Facebook i always  mention this site as the place to get more knowledge!

There are many more XXBlackbirds than 750Hurricanes, so that is no surprise.
Even now there are 17 visitors on here, so i think more people outside this forum will see your offer about mirror extenders than you think.

True, there are just a  few members active on the forum, but every time i log in there are lots of guests visiting, possibly for information, manuals or even just interest in the bike in question. Even when only 10% of those guests really has a cbr750, the forum has a reason for existance!

Nice post in the buying/selling section :thumbs:
I wonder how many reactions you'll get, it is a fair price!

Looks good, as if Honda made them in the factory!
What would the price be? (Postage to Holland would be substantial  i'm afraid
)

Correct winky5a
That partnumber has been succeeded by 45251ML7000, and both numbers give lots of response via Google as where they are available!

Carl hasn't been back yet since asking his question...

In the mean time there has been some activity on the Facebook page 'Honda CBR 750 Hurricane', and I'm trying to get those guys over here instead of asking the whole wide world for info gribbin12

Hi Carl, those for the 1987 VFR should be easy to get for reasonable prices.
Cheers Rob

BTW, did you ever try to contact our member RuaphuNZ (Andy Wilson)?
As the nickname implies he's also situated in NZ, and although he rides another brand bike nowadays he will still be quite familiar with the innards of your bike.
If you want it, I think I still have his email address somewhere, he is a lot closer to you than I here in Holland.....

Doesn't sound good, could indeed be transmission related....
Start with taking of the cover over the front sprocket, and the front sprocket itself. Than you can take off the cover over the gear selector/shift mechanism, there is a chance a  spring is broken or a small part of the selector gear has worn/shifted etc.
Did you download the workshop manual/parts manual from this site?
It is all in japanese, but the pictures are a great help and language unsensitive gribbin12
A workshopmanual for a cbr1000f can also be of help, those are plentiful obtainable in any language, and the shift parts for instance work the same, even if they may be a little different in dimension....

If it doesn't crank, and the battery is good, the first suspect is indeed the startermotor, which is easy serviceable, be it a bit hard to reach.
With the right sidrpanel removed it should (just) be possible to loosen the two bolts and the cable from the starter and wiggle it out from under the carbs. Splitting the starter is done by removing the two long thin bolts on the outside and carefully pulling the housing apart, paying attention how things are fitting together for later assembly. taking into acount the age there will be a fair amount of carbon  from the brushes in the motor, a bit of compressed air, or even a soft brush will deal with that. do try the startermotor while still off the bike, if acting better assembly is thje reverse of disassembly gribbin12
If it cranks but doesn't start, the best thing to start with is changing the sparkplugs, good chance they're wet and won't spark. I assume you checked the most obvious things like battery, fuel and air supply already.
