Well, I'm trying again hoping the picture comes through this time.I finally got around to installing Dave Dodge's oil modification kit on my 82 V45 Magna. It was a lot of work, but we'll worth the effort. Thanks Dave.

  • Same here. I wonder what the explanation is. Is it a claim the cylinder cams on one side or the other are more vulnerable?

  • Would the 1 line route the dirty oil from the tranny thru the filter whereas not before? I don't know I'm asking.

  • ALL Honda V45 / VF700 / VF1000/ V65, Sabre / Magna / Interceptor 1982 thru 1988 share the same stock oil system. The stock oiling system feeds unfiltered oil to the heads at low pressure and low volume from the low pressure port of the oil pump after passing through the transmission. Installing a properly engineered top-end oiling system will feed filtered oil to the heads at twice the pressure and volume of oil vs. stock... with increased lower-end oil pressure at idle. Added benefits include dedicated oiling to the transmission for improved trans life and cooler oil entering the heads thru 2 lines providing equal pressure to both heads. Any oil mod that uses any stock oil system components is not properly engineered. This also goes as far as using off-the-shelf hoses and fittings. http://www.honda-v4.com/sabmag/v4honda/oilmod-dd.h tml

right guys, need some help/info im sorting a 97 vtr1000 for a mate, the front cam tensioner went on him the other day, now I;ve re-timed it and fitted new manual tensioners but it sounds like its dropped a valve as there is a pinging coming from the front, what I need to know is would the valves from a rear head fit the front head ok?

or has anyone got a complete front head in good order and ready to fit for sale please

  • Ah okay. Thank you Sael. :) I am assuming that your soft/intermediate/hard eh sa rubber compound nang tire iyon?

is there a way to tell if my rear floating caliper is actually floating — Honda V45 and V65 owners (Sabre Magna)

is there a way to tell if my rear floating caliper is actually floating?..i cleaned, lubed, inspected all parts but there is still a slight drag on the wheel....it spins quite freely with caliper off, when put on and i use my foot to spin the wheel it spins about 1/3 turn...about a full turn or more with caliper off....i really dont want to remove pistons as i do believe that will mean bleeding...also, the brake pads are brand new.....and the front tire spins like a top..i should mention the pistons look fine, cleaned them up good while i pumped them out a bit

  • sorry for any confuson dave, what looked like a washer under the nut, was in fact just a nut that looked like it had a washer under it

  • If the axle was that hard to move, take this opp to clean and lube it.

  • In UK a double white line is absolutely no overtaking. Plus there are road signs saying slow, slow pero lalong binirit ang motor noong driver. Idiots like that creates a bad name for all riders.

    We have a family friend who was badly hurt with a broken skull and 21 broken bones because his leisurely bicycle was bump by a speeding motorcycle. The motorcycle driver was very drunk. His wife is very angry with all motorcycle drivers. Saying they are all "gago". It was very hard to explain to her that not all motorcycle drivers are like that and I am driving a motorcycle too. Haaaayz sometimes the irresponsible behavior of a few affects the reputation of the majority.

  • Napansin ko nga din fault nung nakamotor. Plus hindi naman sharp yung curve pero nagoovershoot. At least lucky padin siya na sa mukhang malambot na damuhan siya gumulong gulong. I guess natuto naman na siya after ng accident na yan

I wouldnt mind your thoughts if poss. Trying not to make extra work for myself so was wondering what folk thought of the white wheels. All being well will add a couple red decals to go with seat but cant make my mind up if the wheels go or just clash with the red/black :-S

  • Julian Kroesen Not sure what I'm doing with seat just yet. It will either stay on the bike when it sells... or i will be putting a plain seat from my bike on which means I will need the seat for now until I sort something out for my bike. If I do keep it for now, I can always give you a shout when I am ready to get rid of it.

  • Helen Lincoln-Smith it's S - '98

  • I like the white wheels... but trying to make best with what I got and not sure they go with seat... if i had choice I would have plain seat with cowl and would of painted some number boards on front and rear sides in white to match wheels.... Have got some nice black rims that I could put on with red decals and red trimmed seat but I really don't want to let the black wheels go. I'll keep thinking for now lol

Has anybody experienced coolant leaks from this hose? It is the main hose coming from the front of the bike and goes to the water pipe in top of the rear cylinder. It is leaking from the front and rear of the hose, and yes the clamps are on and in the correct placement. Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!

%d comments
  • may be as simple as disconnect / reconnect with new clamps

  • mine is 99 honda areo 1100 also

  • Sometimes the plating on that pot metal gets crusty and starts leaking. You could pop them off and clean the pipe as best as you can, then re-install the hose with worm-drive clamps.

Just letting you know, you made the right decision buying the XR125. The moment I laid my eyes on it, I knew it wouldn't win any beauty pageant, but it'll definitely be a kickass all-around "baragan" bike. True to its dual-sport nature, the XR125 rocks on the road and rocks harder off it. The photos are when we first tested the XR125, and when I say tested, we thrashed it around HSDC and Honda made it even a competition to a best time around the track.

Congrats Honda XR125L riders!

I need some help from the experts with my VF700S. I'm finding that it takes much more cranking to start when using the fuel tank and factory petcock than it did when supplying fuel from a bottle and some tubing (no petcock). When using a basic bottle and tubing, it starts right up even after sitting for days. When using the fuel tank and petcock it needs to be cranked for 10 to 15 seconds before it will stumble to life, after sitting for a few days.

Please educate me if my thinking is wrong, but does that mean that the bowls are emptying out when it sits, and the cranking is required to open the petcock and re-fill the bowls? What would cause the bowls to empty after sitting for a day or two? I'm not seeing or smelling fuel leaking from the carbs, but it seems like it's going somewhere.

I recently rebuilt the carbs and the petcock. I put a new fuel screen on the petcock but did not see any parts that appeared to need replacing in the carbs.

Any troubleshooting tips would be appreciated...

  • where does the stock fuel filter go to and from Dave Dodge

  • On a Sabre, the stock filter goes inside the tank on the end of the gas valve. On any V4 with a fuel pump, the filter goes between the lower tank and the fuel pump. Adding a second filter on a fuel pump bike can actually shut the pump down when there is too much backpressure.

  • Can anyone show me the correct fuel line routing from the petcock to the carbs? Mine is in kind of a loop and I have no idea if that is correct.

  • They are crazy how slow and far you can lean them. I'm rebuilding one all army green with white stensiling and a 6hp robin engine. I'm trying to figure out something other than the fake tank to use because I'm not using the original clone and gas tank. I wanted to use this old Harley Davidson tank I have but its too long.

  • Yea ive got 1200$ of wrk in mine, those tires were 400$ alone lol i just bought a 6.5 hp gx200 last night for it and next thats goin on is the TAV2 Torque converter and a snorkel for muddin :) if u want a bomb tank the 2012 mb200 tank fits the warrior, the warriors original tank is hollow aluminum but the mb200 tank has a watertight storage compartment and they are only 50$ on the ombwarehouse website. Go there for all the parts you need they have the best prices for aftermarket parts

  • And if you call yamaha and tell them you have a bruin 350 and would like 2 handlebar velcro covers they will send them either free or dirt cheap, and they just so happen to fit the forks of a warrior like a glove as forkcovers

Just to think about. Using the 4 6 mm spacer at the rear will give less grip — Honda VTR 1000 Firestorm owners

Just to think about: Using the 4 - 6 mm spacer at the rear will give less grip !!!

  • My 2 cents worth. The purpose of both mods is to reduce the rake and thus the trail. Dropping the front reduces ground clearance so whilst the bike might tip quicker, it can't lean as far so can't turn quicker. Raising the rear improves clearance but the raised CoG makes for moving the weight further and so cancels out the benefits as I see it. This can be compensated for by leaning off the bike further but this has it's limits. And if you do both, the bike becomes too light in the rear under heavy braking . With the VTRs engine braking, this can lead to skips and loss of stability. I have tried both mods and found the best solution was to leave the bike stock. The best mods for the VTR I have found are a good set of rearsets and a forkbrace. Get your body low and forward as possible (and tuck your feet up)

  • I often play with the settings and geometry of mine. With the roads round here every little tweek is noticeable and I have to say I agree with Karl. :-)

  • I fitted a 6mm spacer and went on a diet and lost 2 stone.

April is Amputee Awareness Month — Honda Shadow Aero

April is Amputee Awareness Month.

I had a second check socket fitted today. Bob (my stump) has shrunk quite a bit since last week, and will require a third fitting. That delays my getting a leg by another week.

Disappointing, but that will make for a better fit when I get my final socket, and my socket should fit longer before I need a new one.

That is something many don't understand, that amputees need sockets replaced as their stump shrinks or changes shape over time. Diet and exercise play a part in how your socket fits, as well as gaining or losing weight. A poor fit means the amputee could get sores or otherwise injure themselves.
