I've been checking the fourm more the last few days which got me motivated to dig back into the bike.
I got the bike partially torn apart. I was able to leave quite a bit still attached. I only needed to move it enough to get at the top engine cover bolt.
I originally thought I would have to drill out the hole and put in a helicoil, but after futher investigation, it looks as though the bolt hole is deeper than the bolt, so there is still some good thread. I am going to pick up a longer bolt and see if I can get away with that.
The only part I need to order will be the oring for the coolent, but I'm wondering if I can get a generic oring instead of the original honda. Is it normally flat, or was it a normal round oring that squashed?
I also pulled the carbs apart. Boy are they nice and clean inside. The previous owner had them cleaned by a mechanic a year or two ago, and he must have drained them before he stored the bike. There is no old gas buildup at all.
Lastly, I took a look at the jets. Both the front and rear cylinder are the same. They are 40 and 118. The seat that the float needle goes into has a 24 on it.
I have yet to read up on jetting, but my bike has aftermarket pipes, so I would think it has been rejetted.
I'm hoping to have her back together by this weekend.
