Overhaul just one Honda 4 and you'll be an airhead rider for life.

I hate those things.

cat skinners

[QUOTE=supershaft;15201106]I don't understand why you would need to check that after a rebuild but there is more than one way to skin a cat.
.................Only one way to skin a cat ...Take the fur off.... Some things when it comes to wrenching can be a PITA ..however I did Ford IFS lift kit solo in the drive way ... So when that driveshaft boot on the scooter task came along ....It s all attitude .

Similarly, all I had to do (a couple of years ago) was replace the main jet in my NX 650. After a few iterations I had the time down to about 90 minutes. Which is a hell of a lot longer than such a job has any right to be on a single cylinder single carb bike.

(It's about time I revived the fscker. It's been sitting for 2 years, the front brake pads have seized on the rotor, and I need to move. I love the big thumper, but for working on I'll have the GS any day.)

Pushrod Seals

I've only done this job a couple or a few times and not had a problem.

I use two sleeves on the lower studs to push the assembly into place using the nuts.
This stops the tendency of the assembly cocking the seals in the holes.

I do this with heads on rockers off and maintain the tension during rocker assembly before final torque down.

The theory is squeeze it in to its final home and let the seals relax then no further disturbance.

Maybe I just got lucky but I've had no issues with weeping around the seals or base gasket without some sort of impact event to set it off.
