As some of you may know I picked up a little Honda recently so I could go riding with friends on weekends....... I know what you were thinking:



But no, think dirtier than that:



So last night I finally got a chance to have a small look over it. I got it for pretty cheap so wasn't expecting show-room quality or anything, I saw some of this when I was buying but was still happy to pay what I won the ebay auction for. Here's some of the finer points:

Starting at the front, I noticed there was hardly any pad material left on the pads:



The rear pads are ok actually. There are bolts missing from the fork guards:



I found out why.... no threads... So i'll be heli-coiling them.

There's quite a few missing bolts around actually:



Quite a few jerry-rigged and elec-taped parts:







Some PO was ham-fisted as fook it seems:





It could do with a new chain set:



The muffler cap is held on my an assortment of screws:



And I have no idea what is going on with this link-pipe connector:



Speaking of assortment of screws, this is what is holding on the rear plastics:



12mm, 10mm, cross-head, allen key.

Pick-and-mix bolts seems to be the MO of the PO, it's everywhere:



So there will be some standardising going on with stainless allen head bolts in the coming weeks.

It does have solid gold foot pegs though:



Might have to strip them. And undo this chav-tasticness:



Air filter has seen better days:



The fork seals were leaking like a MF when I picked it up, I suspect that's because someone hadn't been air-bleeding them. And this might be why:



So I managed to get them out and added some easy bleeders:



There are some nice parts on the bike, I suspect at one time it was actually quite well loved:







I'll try to make her feel pretty again. Welcome home little moto, you'll be safe here.

So, yeah, a fair bit of work to do. Everything works as it is.... I just want it to look a bit better.

Staying set up for dirt or going SuMo?

Got a bit done today. Wanted to do some yesterday but was waaaaaayyyyy too hungover.

Tidied up some of the controls and added ss bolts:





Put a rubber cover on the kick to stop it clacking on the engine mount, used some spare hose from the VTR build:



Replaced the rad overflow:





And tied it to the frame since i didn't like how close it runs to the header:



Cleaned up the bolts and rivets in the can:





Put in the new air filter:



Cleaned up the pipe joint:



Stripped the gold off the peg mounts, and installed the pivot pegz, put in stainless clivis pins:





Changed out the front pads:



And whipped off all the main fairings to get a better look at everything and get started on the decals next time around:

Mostly there on the "make her pretty" front, removing most of the chavy decals and adding slightly more classy ones. Eg, i have no idea what "Muscle Milk" is and i don't think i want to, Dunlops, however, more my thing, out with the old, in with the new:



Bunch of other stuff, some SS fasteners and we're here:









Don't know how long some of those are going to last under alternating dirt / pressure washer blastings, but i like it for now.

So there are some mechanical things to do, chain and sprox, oil and filter and i've got to fix a stalling when whacking the throttle open from idle, and hanging coming back down. A carb clean is coming, but i also had a poke around and found there is a mix screw adjuster fitted:



Nice! So when i get the carb back in again it should be relatively straight forward to dial in.
