Well I still have my Hurricane. True, been and have other bikes. A 1999 VTR1000 with 15,000 miles on the clock, and a 2002 VFR800 Vtec with 12,500 mile which is the one one the road at the moment. Just fitted new fork seals the the 750 Hurricane today. I had the forks machined out about 16 years ago the take the bigger 3 lip seal that were fitted to a later VFR. Of course I forget what year they were from, so had problems getting correct seals. But all done now, so the bike is going to have a major clean as it go's back together.  Even though it has not been on the read for over 2 years it still stars no problem and run smooth as silk. My mate has one to and has got classics insurance on it, which was  £60 +, so I am hoping to get the same so it will be permanently on the road again.  :pompom: Just a thought, was it not also sold in South Afiric beside Japan? That has always been my understanding.

It is an H.  I have had an old one that need a new tensioner, and fitted it myself, but the H I have now has the modified tensioner fitted from new. Honda modded them as soon as they knew that there was a problem. I have read somewhere a long time ago, the engine number from when the new tensioner was fitted.

Hi, I had no 4 fully shut, but the exhaust pipe still got hot, which of course leads you in the wrong direction. Suck balancing! If you suck ( with your mouth) on #3 carb ( the master carb) , then do the same to #2 and 4 , adjust to the suck resistance it the same, then do #1 carb. I have always got better results this way, over vacuum gauges. Worked in a garage for 14 years, and was a MOT tester, before working for myself, then moved on into engineering.

This is my one back on the road after sorting out the carbs. Also now has a VFR 750 Motad silencer matted to the original front pipe and collector. Have also moded the steel exhaust shields, so that the belly pan is secure, and it just give it that slick look. Without them it just looked stupid.  Now has 17,000 on the clock, 6,000 of that was KM. Wheels have been glass blasted, and powder coated black, the old paint was starting to let the air out of the tyres ( Ally is porous )

Hi, This the replay that I gave to your other thread;

Hi, You have the flap fully closed, so the cylinder will not be getting any air/fuel, and why there is no vacuum on # 4. Winding it in more pushes open further the other 3 flaps, revving it up. Had the same problem with my one, checked the tappets thinking that one may not be shutting properly, but OK. Fitted new plugs, no difference. Took the carbs of and # 4 was fully shut, lifting the others open. I suck balanced them, now purrs like a kitten.

Hi, does anyone know the from what engine number that Honda fitted the new tensioner. I have found a 88 cbr that has the engine code RC271000846, with 7,050 miles on the clock. My one is a later code, and has the new tensioner in, so no problem with it. I did have and older one that the tensioner broke, so not wishing to split another engine again.

Hi, I fitted one quit a few years back, and yes the engine has to be split, as there is a bit of webbing in the way. The tensioner were updated as part of it would brake, making them rattle like mad, plus they have made the tensioning part have a longer travel, so will last longer. I got mine from the local Honda dealer in a few days.

This is my mates (rear) and mine. Had mine since 2001 and now only has 17,000 one the clock, 1st 6,000 was KM. This is my second one, 1st one had for 6 years. I have a problem with the carbs at the moment, but will get it sorted in the end.

All Technical Issues / Re: Vacuum Pump
« on: May 31, 2013, 14:03:05 PM »
Hi, It is not a pump, it is a vacuum tap. So when the engine is not running no fuel can get to the carbs. If the bike has been standing for some time, the carbs dry out, so will not start. It will need cranking for some time with the throttle kept shut to make a vacuum, this will let the fuel in, can take about 30 seconds to start. Can be a right pain. My one holed the diaphragm, and got a 1100 Goldwing one, and with a little bit of modding now all OK. It was the only one I could find that was the same size, all the other Hondas have a smaller diaphragm.

 HI.I agree with the weak batt, but it could also be that the fuel vacuum tube has came of or is split,( off the left hand inlet)this would explain why it ran to start with, running only on what was in the carbs.

Hi , just a note on your fork seal's: on my bike I had the fork top's milled deeper so that VFR 750 seal's could be fitted-there's no prob getting them & they have 3 seal lip's not 2. Since then I'v had no more leak's, plus they will take more presser-12 PSI in my :) case which improves the handoling no end
