Out & About / OUT AND ABOUT 2019
« on: February 15, 2019, 02:51:02 PM »
Well, the sun was shining, so that was it.....out for a ride on the Honda CD250u. This bike hadn't been started for 5 months, it still had last summers stale old fuel in the tank, pumped up the tyres, checked oil and she fired up 1st touch of the button and ran a dream. Almost 70 miles today, a bit nippy but beautiful in the sun up on the Wolds.

I thought I would just share this as saw it on FB. I know nothing about the bike, or the owner, or anything else. Just sharing as i know some members may be looking for a 400. Don't contact me, contact the owner. It's on the Honda CB400 four FB page.

Does anyone have a good device or a good way of securing their bike?
I always put the steering lock on when I'm parked up away from home and I also carry a really thick chain with hefty padlock if i'm going to park up in a dodgy area,which I put through the wheel. I also chain it, through the wheel, to whatever bike Trig is riding if we are out on two bikes. I'm just wondering if anyone has found a small, compact device that can be used, instead of me carrying the chain that is so heavy, I think it could be used as an anchor chain on HMS Ark Royal  ;D ;D ;D
Thoughts and advice please

Humour / If only it were that easy 😀😀😀

CB350/400 / Old wires !!!
« on: January 26, 2019, 03:34:00 PM »
Part of this winters fettling included removing the plastic tubing on the front of loom which had gone brittle and split. Disconnected all the wires in the head lamp and they were in good nick, all connectors clean and nice and tight. Unlatched the block connector that joins the wires from the loom to the ignition and the red wire has completely corroded through with no wire left in the spade at all. How my bike started, or didn't conk out going over a bump, I will never know. There must have been just enough contact between the tip of the wire and spade to allow it to work.

CB750 / CB750/4 water damage to pistons
« on: December 17, 2018, 11:22:37 AM »
Graham is stripping a very, very early engine today. This engine has been stood for not far off 50 years after sustaining chain damage to the crank cases. The engine has done probably less than 1000 miles as other parts are original and in excellent condition, although most parts will need replacing due to age related deterioration. The pistons were seized to the bores and 1 piston in particular has sustained a very similar type of damage to what I found in my CB400/4. Graham always insisted my damage was caused by water ingress a long time ago, with rust forming, eating in to the metal, with the resulting catastrophic damage when someone 'unseized' the engine probably with a big breaker bar and a lot of force and then started the bike and rode off into the wild blue yonder.
I think this just shows what damage can NOT be seen, when buying an old engine that has sat around for many years.

Photo 1 shows totally destroyed rings, lands and piston. Photo 2 shows the top ring being eaten away.

Found this on another site which I thought was interesting. This example is for the resisted plugs and as we know, you shouldn't use resisted plugs with resisted caps but it gives a good indication of what we can look at to help diagnose a problem.
