    What led headlights would you all recommend? The lenses and housings on the front plastics I have are in poor condition and I would like to know if it's worth upgrading to led or just buy new halogen lenses? Looking for brand names or links please.

    That's a good point Fish! They have been taken out a few times for the fitment of other bits, when I get the ignition working and exhaust fit, I will turn it on and turn the steering both ways to check for that possible issue. Wouldn't want to throttle up accidentally when you need to be braking...

    I was only figuring out the old site with mobile version, now it's all up in the air again lol!

    I cleaned the wire housing box that bolts onto the front end of the bike above the plastic splash guard and fit it in place. It was manky! I also replaced the broken choke lever for a new one, it's not easy fitting the small stuff when you have shovels for hands! The fuel tank got a little bit...

    We have left the bike for a few days as dad is in England at a Game Fair. I was eager to have a look at the wiring side of things so I took out the loom and have encountered several problems already! The first issue I noticed was a broken metal fin that holds one of the socket connectors near...

    Just realised I posted a picture of a chainsaw sprocket cover in my last post, that was intended for a friend of mine. I was disgusted to see so much gunk on it no care for his machine!đŸ˜‚rant over!

    The package from Holland arrived today! We fit the new big washer on the left side of the rear axle so the rear end (less the foot brake pedal) is almost complete! Dad didn't mention that he removed the carb two days ago, dismantled it and found that it was generally in very good condition and...

    I have a question about the front differential. With the bike jacked up so the two wheels are off the ground, when we rotate one wheel, the opposite wheel rotates in the other direction which is fine. The problem I see is that when I turn the wheel by hand, it's very hard to rotate it, it feels...

    What is the recommended engine oil to use for this bike? The chap I bought it off claims he did a service on it but the oil is very black, maybe it goes black quickly? I literally did about 2 miles with it before taking it apart.

    Some more photos for you interest.. I noticed oil on the cardboard under the front diff so it looks like the front end will have to be dismantled again to fix the issue. The leak itself is coming from the drain plug bolt. Anyone got some ideas on how to stop the leak? (Pic 2).

    Today I went and bought 25m of clear breather pipe (it was cheaper to buy the lot than to buy what I actually needed). I installed breather tubing to the rear final drive, rear brake drum and central gearbox. I got the front brake lines on and managed to straighten out all the mounting brackets...

    Dad is off fishing for the evening so I have got stuck into the front brake hoses. Using an exploded diagram of the brake setup and photos I took from the beginning, I have managed to put it back together. I do have one question though. Where the end of the brake hose bolts onto the back plate...

    I am back on board! In a pub currently but I figured out how to use the new, updated version of the honda forum! I have been very busy this past week cutting hedges for various clients including today, so the bike is relatively untouched at the moment. Hopefully the parts from Holland shoe...

    TRX Student, thanks for your post and I'm delighted that you are enjoying the thread! It has been a challenging build at times and sometimes I have wanted to throw in the towel but we are so deep into it with money and labour, and the excitement grows with every part we put back on the bike so...

    Didn't get a lot done myself today, but dad did some work on the bike. He fit the rear brake cable that goes to the front left hand brake, aswell as fitting the reverse cable which I adjusted at the engine end. We also assembled the cooling fan (pics 1 & 2) and refit it on the frame. It works...

    That's some relieving news Fish! Dad managed to get the front driveshaft in yesterday with help from his wife ( my mam)! He has to remove much of what we had fit on Sunday to get the front drive far forward enough to get the shaft in, so hats off to both of them!

    Is it easy to get the seal out? I have no intention of opening up the engine, I'll leave that to someone who works on engines daily! Everything else we should be able to manage on the bike. Thanks for your opinion and advise.

    Here's an arrow pointing to where the oil came from, it has me concerned that the engine needs a bit more attention than I first thought.
