Rare Now days one year model. Trying to find out definitively is this model was a single pin crankshaft engine. The ones Harley Davidson sued Honda over the Pa Ta To sound. I'm resurrecting a recent Barn find with 31k on it.

Ah ok so the 88 800 will be more up, honda quiet and more reliable. I'm hoping. Lol. Thanks. Oh so is it 45 or 52 degrees V twin dual pin crankshaft?

I am waiting on 2 float valves and it's test fire time. It had been in a barn since 2013. Carbs were cobbled up and lower isolator boots were hardened. A fuel filter, fuel pump on the way too. Hopefully she will run. Oh, a new battery too, lol.

Some guys have softened the boots by putting them in hot water. Some even said put wintergreen oil in the water. Not sure how it works.

Someone on here found one with 400 miles in immaculate condition. He finally bought it, but paid like $5,500. Still a deal for that bike. I'm gonna seal down the rubbers on the slide diaphrams to ensure no vacuum leaks. My old cx500 ones shrunk now idles at 4k after cleaning. Gonna do them too.
