Thanks!

I don't wanna take it apart yet.
Its like breaking the "beer seal". Once you start you can't stop.

I'm going to have to get colored bins to keep track of what belongs on the 610 and what belongs on the 950... or better yet I should set up another workshop in the 2nd garage and keep them separated

Is there a decent service manual available for the LC8?

All my SAS/canister stuff is removed and the stock cans have been de-catted and put back together.

Did you re-jet for Baja or just run the jetting you posted above?

I rejetted. I've run that jetting down to about 700' before- it worked but you could really tell it was lean.

I just changed the mains to 158/162 for Baja and it ran GREAT!



Man, I wish we could keep that sea-level power up here!

The answer is that every 950 is different. Practice taking the tanks off. It comes in handy when the boots let loose and the carbs start bouncing around inside the air box in the middle of Wyoming. You access the screws to the boots from the right hand side. I of course started from the left side.

I'm sure he'll get plenty of practice when he re-jets.

Or does damn near anything else on that bike. I love that bike, but man, every time I start working on it, I just take the tanks off. I'm considering making a "950 tank rack" in the rafters of the mini-deluxe garage.

You have obviously never worked on a V4 Honda.

4 carbs wedged between the V, 16 valves to adjust. My ST1100 had dozens of screws and panels to take off just to do an oil change. I don't think the 950 is that bad.

I hear you Duke.. my K1200LT took over an hour to "de-fair".

... my CBR600F2 was such a pain in the ass to change the center two spark plugs that I would bet money 75% of CBR600's run the same two center spark plugs their entire life

That said... I'm still considering if I wanna figure out how to hold the fuel tanks on with 1/4 turn Dzus fasteners

When has a Honda ever needed a valve adjustment or sparkplug change?

That's true. After riding my F2 for 10 years and 243508234508208 miles I checked the valves and they were still in spec. Then I raced it a year and at the end of the season when I sold it they were still bang on. It still had the original spark plugs too

My '84 Sabre needed the occasional valve adjustment. Usually it was only one or two of the 16.
