    Are swampnut and superhawk having mental breakdowns ?
  4. it could be the slider pin is gummed up.years ago the one on mine was full of crud.it has a 14mm bolt head. i recently replaced front and rear brake pads and the rears were sticking with the new pads.slider bolt was clean so gave the pistons a clean by pushing them almost all the way out and cleaning them with a rag dipped in brake fluid.made no difference so ended up refitting a half worn set and that was enough to bypass the problem.am interested in hearing others responses to your question as im stumped where to look next to fix them.
  5. haynes manual has exhaust downpipe nuts 20nm
  6. what side are you seeing the leak from?left hand side,side stand side...could be either a hose not tightened enough or the water pump seal starting to fail.put the bike on centre stand and have a look around using a bright torch for signs of any leaks.right hand side could be the overflow hose not sealing on the radiator properly.remove the side fairings if you can
  7. the vfr 750 and early 800,s are still a great looking bike and so comfortable.the vfr750 was a bike i was looking at buying 18 years ago till i test rode a blackbird.
  8. cheers for that.the whole braking system came up for sale cheap so i ended up grabbing it for spares.
  9. just wondering if calipers from a 2001 blackbird will fit a 99.looking at the parts list they have different part numbers

    Vacuum leak???

    starter valves sounds about right.yep activated by the wax unit.i think they restrict air,hence runs rich when cold.once the wax unit heats up the starter valves,or what i called plungers move back letting more air through.not sure what caused one on my bike to stick.i had shipped it back from europe and when i picked it up from the shippers depot it was running like a pig.took me a while to find out why but eventually tracked it down to one of the starter valves not opening when warm.i had a post on here back then asking for any ideas what what causing the rough running and sooty plug.will have a look for it.found it http://www.cbr1100xx.org/forums/index.php?/topic/73866-running-rich-in-no-4-cylinder/

    Vacuum leak???

    a few possibilities that are easy to check,maybe a weak spark.is the battery charging ok? check the connectors going to the coils. the auto choke,enrichment system may be sticking. i have a 99 as well and havnt had a vacuum problem with it as yet.

    Hi Spanish,easy checks to do would be check the contacts on the kill switch and checking the loom fix.im sure more knowledgeable members will be able to suggest other possible checks
