Good Evening
Very interested in this bike.  Honda rider since 1970.  Getting close to retirement so selling the bigger bikes. Have been looking for one of these for awhile. Would like to see if we can come to an agreement acceptable to both parties.

Was just looking back over this thread as I got my CBR1100XX shock installed. As expected, it has a lighter spring than stock, but so far it seems usable. I can't find a C spanner to add preload, but that's definitely the first thing it needs as it drops a lot coming off the stand.

I haven't yet noticed it bottom out but I've only ridden round town, this may be because it also has a longer stroke than stock. I haven't measured that scientifically, but for sure the bike starts at higher ride height (wheel nearer ground on centre stand) and still goes down to around about stock level at full compression. Seems legit that if you have more wheel travel, you can use a softer spring?

I wondered idly if you could easily extract the hydraulic preload adjuster off a VFR750 shock.


According to the Penske site, that shock has a similar spring rate requirement to the CB-1, so if I could get the adjuster and the spring off a cheap one and fit it to my Blackbird shock, I could have my own cheap version of your Frankenshock.

These bikes are just not selling lately...I know first hand.

Low miles and great shape may get you a premium price from the right buyer at the right time, but there are very few people trafficking this forum who don't already have a CB-1. Ebay would be your better bet at getting the interest you seek.


100% spot on with this statement. It never fails, when the cash is a burnin' a hole, there's no CB1s to be bought. When there's no pesos on the street.....you see 4 CB1s for sale in all manners of shapes and conditions.....never fails.

But yes, that is correct. You just have to have the right timing and buyer to get your CB1 sold.
Good Luck.

Anyone know if there's an aftermarket alternative available?
Or if the pulser coil/generator from other models of that era will work?

HELP!

Any idea  if the pulse coil/generator is the same as that of the CBR 600f1?

I'm having the problem with my fuel lines. I'm trying to replace the broken ones with the metal covered brake lines but they are very hard to work with and I'm afraid pulling the tank off will be a major pain after I do get these working. My fuel pump is working fine, so not changing that can you shoot a pic of how the fuel line is routed? I saw the mention of 2 feet of line wasn't enough I assume we are talking from the fuel pump to the filter and then to the petcock. A vintage guy (ha not CB-1 vintage but real old vintage :-)) was telling me  to buy a bunch of hose and coil it up under the tank but that seems like it would be in the way of all kinds of things down there

The pickups can indeed fail at high mileage although it's relatively uncommon. You'll often find them in UK. Pod70 may be able to help.

The gasket is identical to cbr600f1.

I'm trying to get my 1989 CB-1 running again and my mechanic has discovered (we think) that I need a new PULSER COIL and GASKET...

Can anyone help?!

Thanks!

well....how much do expect to get for it?
I understand, 1500 miles, yes, I get it.
What do you think you'd let her go for?
