    Pros and Cons of Buying a '80s Goldwing

    Why should it idle below 900? The idle is 1000 +/- 100 rpm. If that is too fast, turn of the ignition.

    Back to top. I understood your posts as follows: The engine has very low compression. You honed the cylinders, used the old pistons, and used oversize piston rings that are not Honda. This could have worked, but it carries risks. When honing the cylinders, the bore must be accurately measured...

    Moin, There must be an easier way to adjust the throttle screw. In production, they didn't have the time to experiment with it for long. Unfortunately, I have not found this setting value anywhere either. I guess we'll have to keep looking. On mine, the screw was also adjusted, but the TPS is...

    You take the petroleum, because it is thinner. This makes it easier to bleed the hydraulic tappet and easier to screw it in during assembly. The kerosene escapes more easily and the hydraulic tappet goes into its working length more easily. It does not remain in its relaxed length, but in the...

    I also had a problem with the hydraulic tappets. After overhauling the cylinder head, I mounted the camshaft and the hydro tappets. I measured them with the gauge and provided them with the necessary shim. (I have 6 cylinder heads and all have only one shim per valve.) I bled the hydro tappets...

    I have a set of used oem in spare, and as long as possible, I will use the oem. Normally they last very long. There is a risk of corrosion on the primary connectors. It was only a reminder, not to sort them out, while the troubleshooting is still going on. I am working on a similar problem, but...

    Moin Rednaks60 I have already replied to that: I had a similar experience with the coils, I used a flashlight, to test the firing and there were some dropouts. The measuring of the primary and secondary contacts was ok. After the change of the coil, everything was fine. You never know what...

    I had a similar experience with the coils, I used a flashlight, to test the firing and there were some dropouts. The measuring of the primary and secondary contacts was ok. After the change of the coil, everything was fine. You never know what happenes inside the coils, when they warm up while...

    Oil

    There are specifications for all oils and it has nothing to do with marketing. Modern high-performance engines also require modern oils with certain spicification. You don't have to stick to them, but if you love your engine and want to have fun with it for a long time, you should stick to the...

    Oil

    A motorcycle oil should be used, as it is designed for use in engine-gearbox combination. The molecular chains of car oil are quickly destroyed and the lubricating effect decreases. JASO Ma2 is important because of the clutch in the oil bath. Synthetic oils are no problem with it.
