82 Honda CB900C chop/racer
« on: Jun 19, 2016, 09:55:54 »
After asking so many times on this forum, figured I better just suck it up and start my own thread on my 82 Honda CB900C. I picked this up February 2016 with 39000 miles on it. Wife said I could get a bike if I found one for $500. The previous owner worked as a mechanic in a Harley shop, so there is some Harley aftermarket stuff already. The said he took it as a trade 3 years ago and no one had interest on it as it had a front fairing WindJammer on it and it was maroon. He attempted to paint it black which I will work on later. The red is rubbing off now.

Well that was easy...  Now the aftermarket stuff.

Today I'm working on my front fender. To chop, (which it doesn't look too bad without either)  or replace with a 92 nighthawk front fender.

Going to try without the fender for now. Next thing, what the f@k is this?


Am I missing a plug?  Noticed it after trying to clean up around the oil return lines.

I got a tail light... But my tachometer works, wonder what they had it hooked up to?  Crap.

I might keep the fender but the tail light and turns I wouldn't use.

According to this diagram...looks like the stop bolt that holds the tensioner plunger in place, and the hole on the very front is a rubber plug (21)
