All Technical Issues / Re: cdi hurricane 750 1989
« on: June 14, 2019, 14:35:09 PM »
I have got a 600 CDI lying around here, and my main bike is a SC21, so I looked at that possibility years ago.
But as I never had a CDI fail on me I never actually tried.
It might work, but be careful as the rev limiter on a 600 lies at much higher revs as the 1000 sc21, and even as the 750!
As you read in the older post the SC21 CDI fits and works OK on the 750, several people have used it over the years, and as far as I know you don't have to make real changes to the wiring for that.

Compared to me you're not far behind, I've got a mobile phone, but it's not a smart one.
It lives in the inside pocket of my bikejacket, to be able to summon rescue in case of a breakdown. It's a prepaid devise that, offcourse, has never been used in anger because I ride Honda.

This one is (still) on the facebook group

I'm afraid it looks a bit different, although that vid isn't very clear (or professional winky5a ).
The dash is quite easy to take apart, and when you do and read the description above it should be evident what to do.
And use the right tools, those aren't phillips screws but JIS, japanese industrial standard, and when you use a JIS screwdriver you'll never run a screwhead again!

Yes. just last week we had some people reporting they couldn't register, and the site has been offline for a day, and changed and adapted accordingly, see 'important news' above or this

Aaand the first question about the Donate button has been posted  smile1004lol
I expected you to regret that over time  smilywhistle

Been a while but I am still up to my old tricks buying up all the CBRs in the UK
He's the one to find if you want a 750 hurricane smilywhistle
If i remember correctly he is based in London......
You should look through his post history (via his profile), it's not long but he made some interesting remarks, and that way you don't have to search through the forum. After all, I am not living in the UK but the other side of the Channel, so his ideas on the UK CBR market are more to the point than mine winky5a

Yeah well, the fact that the colors are invsible /unreadable makes it difficult to use, you'd better use the CBR1000F diagram, and just ignore the fuelpump smile1004yes

Nice bikes, those 400RR's, I've got the ancestor of that, the 400F

Yes, the way of restricting is similar to many bikes built for the Japanese market.
In the tech section there is a sticky topic about how to remove it.
See here

Welcome Bill, You're right, it isn't really a busy forum here any more, but that 's logical as the number of Hurricane 750's is decreasing fast in the last couple of years. But we pride ourselves to be the forum with the most information on this specific motorcycle, and have many visitors each day looking at and downloading the technical info compiled here smile1004up
