  1. Running 7.5w oil instead of the OEM 10w should make zero difference... right? none at all.i have sonic springs in mine with 7.5 w oil.
  2. when ive changed fork oil on my 99 i clean the forks first with either 1500 or 2000 grit (cant remember which now)wet dry sandpaper with wd 40 as lube to smooth out any high bits that might catch the seals..seals just recently started leaking after 300,000 + klms.
  3. I remember reading about the 1200 blackbird on the pommy forum many years ago,found this article about the bikes .. https://www.motorcyclistonline.com/vm-racings-179-hp-honda-cbr1200xx-fire-bird/
  4. i find it fairly easy to replaced the low beam bulb by just removing the infill panels that sit under the dash. swing the clip that holds the bulb holder in place out of the way without removing it completely and it makes it easier when clipping the holder back in place.no biggie if it comes away though,its just a bit more fiddling around to get it back in place.
  5. you can test the wax unit on your bike by starting the bike while cold and seeing if it moves.otherwise just remove the wax unit and heat it up from cold and see if the rod moves.no idea what he is saying but you get the idea
  6. an old car i bought years ago had had 2 stroke oil put in the tank and then run for a while before being parked up for a few years.the fuel system was fine when i bought it.i only had to replace the fuel in the tank and it ran well.
  7. i buy frozen broccoli and cauliflower.tastes fine once ive steamed it.packet says picked and snap frozen
  8. the fi light on my 99 staying on was due to corrosion in the test plug. this is from the cbrxx .com forum Fuel Injection ( EFI ) Fault Diagnosis and Checking If the fuel injection system ( FI ) warning light on the instrument cluster illuminates when the motorcycle is running, a fault has occurred in the fuel injection/ignition system. The engine control module ( ECM ) will store the relevant fault code in its memory and this code can be read as follows using the self-diagnostic mode of the ECM. While the engine is running and the motorcycle is being used, the FI light will come on and stay on. When the motorcycle is on its side stand and the is running below 5000 revs the FI light will flash, the pattern of the flashes indicating the code for the fault the ECM has identified. If the engine can be started, place the motorcycle on its side stand and then start the engine and allow it to idle. Whilst the engine is idling, observe the FI warning light on the instrument cluster. If the engine cannot be started, or to check for any stored fault codes even though the FI light is not illuminated, remove the seat to gain access to the fuel injectionsystem service check wiring connector, which is a white 3-pin ( 2 wire ) single sided connector inside the rubber boot close to the tail light. Ensure the ignition is switched OFF then bridge the outer terminals of the service check connector with an auxiliary piece of wire. With the terminals connected make sure the kill switch is in the run position then turn the ignition ON and observe the FI warning light. If there are no stored codes the FI light will come on and stay on. If there are stored fault codes, the FI light will flash. The fuel injection system warning light uses long ( 1.3 second ) and short ( .5 second ) flashes to give out the fault code. A long flash is used to indicate the first digit of a double digit fault code ( i.e. 10 or above ). If a single digit fault code is being displayed ( i.e. 1 to 9 ) there will be a number of short flashes equivalent to the code being displayed. For example, two long flashes followed by five short flashes indicate the fault code number twenty five. If there is more than one fault code, there will be a gap before the other codes are revealed ( the codes will be revealed in order , starting with the lowest and ending with the highest ). Once all the code(s) have been revealed, the ECM will continuously run through the code(s) stored in its memory, revealing each one in turn with a short gap between them. Once the fault has been identified and corrected, it will be necessary to reset the system by removing the fault code from the ECM memory. To do this, ensure the ignition is switched OFF then bridge the terminals of the service check connector as before. Turn the ignition ON then disconnect the bridge wire from the service check connector. When the wire is removed the FI light should come on for approximately five seconds, during which time the bridging wire must be reconnected. The warning light should start to flash when the bridging wire is reconnected, indicating that all the fault codes have been erased. However, if the light flashes twenty times then the memory has not been erased and the procedure should be repeated. Turn off the ignition then remove the bridging wire. Check the operation of the warning light ( in some cases it may be necessary to repeat the erasing procedure more than once ) then replace the seat. FAULT CODE SYMPTOM POSSIBLE CAUSE 1 Engine runs normally Faulty MAP sensor or wiring 2 Engine runs normally Faulty MAP sensor / vacuum hose 7 Engine difficult to start at low temp. Faulty coolant temp. sensor or wiring 8 Poor throttle response Faulty throttle position sensor or wiring 9 Engine runs normally Faulty intake air temp. sensor or wiring 10 ( see note 1) Engine runs poor at high altitude Faulty atmospheric pressure sensor 11 engine operates normally Faulty speed sensor or wiring 12 Engine does not start Faulty no. 1 fuel injector 13 Engine does not start Faulty no. 2 fuel injector 14 Engine does not start Faulty no. 3 fuel injector 15 Engine does not start Faulty no. 4 fuel injector 18 Engine does not start Faulty cam pulse gen.r or wiring 19 Engine does not start Faulty ignition pulse gen. or wiring 20 engine operates normally Faulty EPROM in ECM 25 engine operates normally Faulty knock sensor or wiring The following codes are only applicable to models with catalytic converter. 21 engine operates normally faulty oxygen sensor 23 engine operates normally Faulty oxygen sensor heat element Note 1. code 10 is only on the 1999 to 2000 X and Y models
  9. instead of soda cans what about stainless shim steel .it comes in some pretty thin sizes.link just for an example. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/123316266292?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=705-159824-816807-4&mkcid=2&itemid=123316266292&targetid=4585444530151277&device=c&mktype=&googleloc=&poi=&campaignid=412352395&mkgroupid=1309518645581565&rlsatarget=pla-4585444530151277&abcId=9300543&merchantid=136820&msclkid=c7c18623da9f19777396e79ff5d9881f
  10. i ended up buying the 06140-mat-325 for 97 to 2000. the water pump has decided to leak so have ordered a new one.hopefully i don't have a repeat of the problem i had when changed out the water pump on my 99
