Hi all,

If I wanted to replace the weather seal/gasket around the travel trunk rim and on the saddlebags, where would I go to get it? I'm painting my bike and replacing lots fo this sort of stuff, and just need an idea.

If you can't find specific weatherstripping for your furniture, JC Whitney has a pretty good selection of the automotive stuff in different sizes and shapes.

I got these parts from: http://www.cmsnl.com/ They are located in the Netherlands but take credit cards and deliver the goods. They seem to have an amazing amount of odd parts.

There's a guy on eBay who sellsparts manuals on CD for just about any bike. I got one for my 1200 and really likedit. It has all the exploded drawings, parts numbers and you can zoom in and out for detail. You can also orderparts from theCD. I ordered acouple parts and although they were a bit slow the parts came. I really recommend the parts manual, much handier than a Fiche. Irecently ordered another from them for my 1500.

Hi Jack:

I am in the same mode, 1982 Aspencade(2 tone silver). Need to replace the weatherstripping, but the big question is the repaint. Plan on solid gloss black. Many of the parts are a kind of plastic(trunk saddle bags, side covers) and also are topped with a decal pinstripe. All of this pin striping will need to be removed for a clean job, along with some small but significant scratches needing to be filled(with what?). I have no experience with this type of material. Should the bike (~13 pieces) be disassembled and sent to the painters in its original condition, or can some of the prep (grunt)work be done by me?

I have been lurking and working- the bike(34 K miles)now has new tires, brakes, forks seals, brake lines flushed, rear differential fluid changed, I even replaced the rear air shocks bushings(good thing ATF doesn't stain), no more direct shots to the spine on sharp edged bumps like manhole covers. Now for some cosmetic work, any idea what a single color repaint should cost roughly? (fairing,"tank", everything)

Sacramento and vacinity daytime temps in hi 70's! unusual and nice, driving home is a pleasure.

thanks

Ken

On a related note, make sure the bags lids are either locked or held on with cords, they can jump off on the highway. Lost one on the freeway and it was run over by a car.

I'd talk to a local paint shop, but I think the best way to go is to take all the plastic off for painting. Plenty of elbow grease with 400-600 grit wet or dry paper used wet will prep the paint, small scratches can usually be taken care of with a shot of sandable primer then some more sanding. Usually you can save considerable money by prepping for painting before taking it in. My old 1200 was repainted this way (great looking Ford Jade Green) and it cost less than 350 to get the painting done. I'd still recommend calling around to find a paint shop that will work with you. MAACO isn't too bad either, they repainted my truck and it looks good.

Hi Ken,

I'm doing all my own grunt work. 400 grit sandpaper roughs up the whole finish so the new stuff "bites" into it, and also works well to remove the stripes. I've used 320 on the stripes, too, which is faster but you have to be careful of going too far down in the plastic and creating low spots. I'm doing all the paiting (two tone deep/light blue metallic) with good old rattle can lacquers. I read this article:

http://www.thegsresources.com/garage/gs_repaint.htm

to get started. I was skeptical at first of the finish, so I just did one side cover. I am TOTALLY happy with the results I'm getting. It's taking longer than just giving it to a paint shop, but I get the satisfaction of doing my own thing and it's costing about $50 or so.

Hi! I'm also interested in the CD. Do you have a link? I can't seem to find it on ebay. I searched with the keywords "parts manual" and "parts manual Honda"

Thanks!

I bought one from:

http://www.cdmoto.com/

It works great but I had to have the older Adobe Reader 6.0 installed to use it.

Now I have 2 versions of Adobe on this computer. But that was a year ago and he may have upgraded by now.

It is great to zoom in and see stuff though.

There are also web sites that do the same thing for free.

Hey that worked well for me Raymond, THANKS!. However at this date us "Old Dawg" drivers evidently have to settle for 2 outta' three 'cause there's no joy :sadguy:eek:n the right side number any more. I made a special inquiry but I ain't holdin' my breath. 'Sides . . . The damn deer seem to favor the left side for "close encounters" anyway. ;)

The only way to paint a bike is to take all of the body work off and paint it individually. The more time and energy you spend on the prep the better the end product will look.
