Re: SRC 475 firing order

Ah, I misunderstood. So two pulse sensors only 120 degrees apart on a 90 degree V triple engine (or is there a third sensor hidden above the generator ?) If the former the crank must have been a 30 degree offset pin on one barrel unless there is some other trickery going on, a programmable but fixed...

Re: SRC 475 firing order

A 120 firing cycle is going to induce a rocking motion on the crankshaft, not enough to be worrying, but other manufacturers have stuck a balance shaft in the lessen the effect. Only Laverda from memory made a 180 degree triple, but that was a four stroke and was created more by accident than design...

Re: Hydraulic Clutch

Magura is the brand that makes conversion kits for 80s bikes including Honda two strokes. 10mm travel only though. https://www.magura.com/en/components/powersports/hydraulicclutchsystems/productdetailpage/?p=1853 Whilst it is claimed there is 20% less pull required, I'm not too sure the return is wo...

Re: Frame ID help

There isn't an issue with UK registered bikes having either primary code number

Pht9 has an eu registered 400.

Re: Frame ID help

From what I recall from purchases a few years back, almost all the early bikes had outboard indicators front and rear, regardless of the paint scheme For example https://ns400r.co.uk/ns400r/gallery/arjen.jpg Or https://ns400r.co.uk/ns400r/gallery/Channel_Hopper.jpg :D When Honda started with the fro...

Re: Frame ID help

Possible confirmation the home grown NS from 1985 was the one with series 100XXXX numbers, or perhaps 1985 production in general

Re: Frame ID help

There are a few bikes on series 1 out there, but the date system is clouded by the time of registration around the world, presumably since sales would be slow. Dealers may also have been taking the bodywork off newer - and slower Rothmans - deliveries out of the crate to shift the older ones, based ...

Re: Frame ID help

If you look at the detail Alastair posted on the thread below http://www.ns400r.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3709&sid=526c21528c7ec95603aec41fb2b9c6ee you can see some frames do start with '1', and without learning Japanese it looks like they are series A It doesn't help with mine though :shock: http...

Re: So, is everyone doing OK ?

The lockdown may be relaxed in the UK sooner rather than later (I suspect our govenment will follow France and extend into mid May), but the issues of getting back to leisure riding will be hampered by a number of factors, not just the dwindling of finances in reserve. The manufacturing and distribu...

The next scandal will be insurance brokers not adjusting premiums in line with the raft of lower annual mileages.
