I would get some clamps on that braided hose. Rubber stretches over time and that snug fit will no longer be snug and will come apart (at the worst possible time).

Good suggestion

The braided hose isn't stock, but it looks like a good solution to the OEM formed rubber hoses going brittle.

Aha, good to know. Maybe an auto parts guy would know of a source.

The braided tank to filter hose was on the bike when I bought it so I just assumed it was stock. Maybe it's an automotive hose?

9  Classifieds / For Sale / Blackbird shock for sale, excellent condition - SOLD! on: June 12, 2018, 06:56:41 PM
EDIT: shoclk has been sold.

Hey guys, I have replaced the CBR1100XX Blackbird shock on my CB-1 with a new shock from Hagon sprung and valved specifically for my weight. So I have the BB shock for sale. It is originally from a low mileage bike and works fine, it's just that it seemed too firm for my light (145#) weight and ride preference.

I made a custom offset top bushing for it to approximate the OEM shock length. I will also include the original bushing with the shock. I also have a '95 CBR600F3 side stand which is longer than the OEM in case the shock is to be used with the original top bushing which raises the bike too high to use the stock CB-1 side stand. I paid $55 for the shock and will sell it for that same price plus shipping, and will throw in the side stand if desired. If anyone is interested let me know your address and I can compute shipping cost.

I documented the shock modification and install here:
http://www.hondacb1.org/forum/index.php/topic,5593.0.html.

Thanks, and here are a couple of pictures:

I can think of two possibilities: either the flasher unit is bad and fails when system voltage increases to normal ~14V level as the engine revs up, or the voltage regulator is bad causing the system voltage to climb way too high, higher than the flasher can cope with. So first thing I would do is to put a volt meter across the battery terminals and rev the engine. If voltage goes above about 16V at any point the regulator may be at fault (a common problem on older bikes) or the battery itself or wiring connections or grounds are faulty.

Hi there,

It does sound like you are on the right track with the side stand switch. Follow the switch lead up to its plug. It has three wires. When the stand is in the up position there should be continuity between the green and the yellow/black wires. When in the down position, there should be continuity between the green and the green/white wires. So to bypass, unplug the switch and jump between the green and the yellow/black pins at the harness plug.

If that solves the problem, then either the switch is bad or possibly it is not engaging the side stand bolt so is not rotating back and forth to the corect positions. The switch has a small flat pin the engages a hole in the head of the stand bolt. If the pin is bent and not in its hole then it can be rotating randomly.

Have you noticed whether the "side stand" light on the dash lights or flickers when the engine dies? Assuming the bulb is good it should light whenever the switch is in the stand-down position. Good luck,

-Bill

My bike had Honda NT650 Hawk bars installed when I bought it. They are a bit farther back and higher than stock and I find them really comfortable. The original bars along with throttle and clutch cables came with the bike, so I assume you will need to change cables to do the swap.
