  3. The oil topic once again. There are a lot of good oils out there. Really comes down to a matter of personal preference & what you have had good experience with. I run amsoil 10w40 in both sides most of the year. When texas temps hit the 100 deg mark in the summer I go 15w50 on the engine side.

    How are we liking fox sports 1?

    The coverage is good. Jeff & Ralph are the same. Miss Erin. New girl is way da. I remember many bashing Erin last year. At least she had a knowledge of the sport. Easy on the eyes for her age too. Like the new camera work. Not a lot really different about it. One thing though. I use to have to pay for speed. Fox 1 & 2 are part of my digital subscription so I suppose that's a plus. Although I haven't cancelled speed yet.

    High Compression Piston

    It turned out great. I wouldn't have done a single thing different. Bike runs great & is rock solid reliable. Im totally happy with it. One lil mod I have done since then was a R&D power bowl 2 & a R&D flex jet. I had already rejetted the carb & wired the pump & installed a Merge Racing fuel screw & that did help a lot but it dosent compare to the power bowl. Throttle response is instant & there is zero bog at low rpm. I had read a few reviews in it saying it makes a carb bike feel like fuel injection & it does. No matter how fast I wick the throttle open it responds instantly. No more low rpm stalling either. Plus the added ease of fuel screw & leak jet adjustment locations makes it that much better. It was well worth the investment & if you shop around you can find them for way less than the $250 list price. I got mine for $169. It installs in a half a hour & tuning it was a breeze. Where I live here in Texas its normal to have a 30 to 40 degree temp difference between the morning & afternoon & that much of a temp swing requires a bit of carb tweaking & it couldn't be easier now. Yesterday it was in the low 40's in the morning & 70's in the aftenoon & adjusting for that was never so easy. Took less than 1 minute. Im sold on it. Im extremely happy with my bike.

    Any tips on water pump fix

    Its not that big a job. Took me about 2-3 hours if I remember correctly. There should be zero movement of the shaft. Any movement is to much.

    If your valves are properly adjusted & your carb jetted correctly it will start very easily. Mine starts in 1-3 kicks all the time. Once warm its 1 kick 95% of the time. Stone cold never more than 3 kicks. No special start ritual. Stone cold, gas on, choke on, kick it. Warm or hot, kick with hot start lever in. I never touch the throttle when starting it. As for jetting I went up 1 size on the main jet & up 1 size on the pilot jet. Works like a charm. Of course jetting will depend on temp & altitude where you are.

    How to Remove Bike Graphics

    Heat gun or hair dryer. Heat both the graphic & back side of the plastic. Peels right off for me.

  14. Honda recommends API service SG or higher, Jaso T903 standard MA or MB 10w40.viscosity. Brand is a matter of personal preference & you will get dozens & dozens of brand recommendations. I run Amsoil 10w40 synthetic in both the engine & trans myself. Lets me buy just 1 oil for both sides & I don't believe there is a better oil out there, I change it about every 8 to 10 hours.

    High Compression Piston

    I have a 03 & did a complete rebuild about 45hrs ago. Installed a hotrods crank & bearings, hotrods stage 1 cam (im a vet rider & wanted more low end) wiseco 13:1 piston (stock in 03 was 11:5:1) ss valves with stock springs & its runs great. Very nice low end gain with no loss on top. I run pump gas with no problems at all. Checked the valves at 20 & 40 hrs & no adjustments were needed. A high compression piston wont bother the crank unless its very very worn. In which case the crank should be replaced no matter what piston your running. Pump gas is fine up to 13:1 compression & Ive read where many run 13:5:1 on pump gas without problems. As for stage 1 or 2 cams it depends on the type of rider you are & what gain your looking for. Being a vet rider I don't rev the bike alot & wanted my gains in the low end. The hotrods stage 1 is designed to make more power at lower rpm & in fact even gives a slight gain across the board. Stage 2 cams are designed to make more power from mid to top & usually cost you just a tad of power down low. You just need to know where you want the power gains at & buy accordingly. Happy riding.
