Ok, I have a question. I need a piece of channel rubber that goes between the two halves of the false tankon my 84 Aspy. Anyone know where to get this stuff or something like it? I talked with the local dealer and they do not have any.

Also, I was working in the area by the handlebar clamps and droppeda tooland it went down in the vast unknown so in order to findit, I pulled the false tank off and half of the crap underneath it. Well, seeing how I have the bike tore down so far, I am going to install the harness while it is apart.

I also found that someone had rigged the coolant resivor. Apparently it had a small crack in the recessed area where the attach screw goes. Anyway, they filled the recessed area with white silicone and attached it back to the bike. When I removed the resivor the silicone came off and now I have a leak. I am going to attempt to repair it again so the bike will be down for at least 24 hours so that I can ensure that I don't have a leak.

Wish me luck!:cool:

It won't look pretty, but if you can find some of the ABS cement it should fix your reservoir. I got my cement for about $1.70 at a local Lowe's hardware store.

Stick a Extension Magnet in the engine you might be surprised what comes out of there?

I agree with the "JB Weld", works on everything and every temperture!

I use the "JB Quick Weld" but it is quick, gets hard in about 3 minutes so you have to apply it quick and smooth it out fast!!!:clapper:

My 84 Wing used to have goop on the overflow tank to plug the leak and it sometimes leaked when the engine got very hot so I ordered another reservoir from Parts Fish. It took about 10 days to arrive at my doorstep and cost me $22. including shipping to Canada. They are excellent to deal with and the replacement tank looked like an original Honda item.

Wow, I learned somethigng new. I never knew of PartsFish.com. Very good site and I will be using it.

Did not get to install the harness. I cannot find the instruction sheet. Had it just the other day and now cannot find it.

It is probably with the 2 dozen right foot socks missing from the dryer over the years.:gunhead:

I have emailed for a new set of instructions.

The overflow tank is made of PolyStyrene and will not adhere to any silicone sealers for long.. I just heat weld them at the crack, or replace it if needed..

Take a look on Servicehonda.com. They haveyour tank spacer in stock for $2.68. Tryto order a few additional widgits that you might need while you're at it. Minimum shipping charge is 9 bucks, but they always seem to have the stuff that other parts houses don't.

Thanks for the replies. I have the rubbers on order.

Now for the harness. I called EC for replacement instructions. They have to come to me via snail mail unless I want to run over to somewhere that has a fax. I do not understand why they don't have the instructions in a Word document that they can just email. I asked this question and I was told that these instructions were wrote before they had a computer and no one ever took the time to put it into a format that they can email.

WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! WE ARE NOW IN THE AGE OF EMAIL!!!

Anyway, they were kind enough to read the instructions to me over the phone. I got about 1/2 way through the install and cannot remenber the rest. I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow and call again.

No riding tonight. :crying: :crying: :crying: :crying:

Go down to Roadrunner salvage they have those parts or at least they did when I was there about 2 weeks ago. You'll have to go upstairs and go to the north side of the room, also there are bins of parts under those tables

Just like today, I went to pull the fuel filter and took the nut off for the bracket that holds the filter and the nut dropped. I saw it hit the top of the engine and I heard it hit two more times berore it came to rest but I never found it. I was out there for 2 hours with a mirror, flashlight and a magnet trying to find it. Finally gave up and went to Ace Hardware to get a replacement.
