Hello to all

Post by Rob Taylor » Sun May 10, 2020 9:25 pm

Hello everyone. I've been riding about 20 years now and currently own two bikes: Honda Hornet 900 and a Kawasaki VN900 custom (bit of a project at the moment).
I try to do the majority of work on these two myself, and have rebuilt mainly Hondas in the past, but like everything, I still have a lot to learn.
I do take a look at this site quite often whenever I need to look for ideas and fixes so thought that it's about time to properly join.

I had the VN750. Few years back bought on eBay as a do it upper, two plugs per cylinder and dammed awkward to get to, but the worst thing was getting the carbs in and out to rebuild bit tight in the V twin area, actually it is still in my avatar. :D

The 900 just has one plug to each cylinder fortunately, but they are a bugger to take out. I've had the fuel tank off so often, I'm thinking of getting rid of it and carrying the fuel in a bag on my back :)
