Winter hibernation in Aus? Do you live in Thredbo?
No, just Canberra. I am old and not in the best of health and only ride low milage anyway these days now the Snowy Ride is no more.Winter hibernation in Aus? Do you live in Thredbo?
Thanks, I was not looking forward to removing the tank. I keep it full when laid up. Surgical forceps will take care of the clamping.If you have the honda workshop manual pdf then the job is a quick one. And no fairings to remove. Yay. You will need fuel line clamps either bought or jerry rigged. Think i got mine through honda bikeshop. cant remember cost.
Thanks Loneranger, was it a Honda one or other brand?Bought one recently in Townsville. Around the $140 mark.
I always raise the tank up at the front. Tie it up to something at ceiling level. Remove 2 bolts at rear and wriggle tank back then pivot up front. do the air cleaner if you need to while you are there.Thanks, I was not looking forward to removing the tank.

I ended up getting a Honda brand unit for $160.00 from the Honda dealer in the ACT.G'day oldmacdonald...errr, maccullagh .
I changed mine (05BB) a couple of years ago just to be sure......
No issue but I was doing plugs, fluids, filters and sealing some rust in the tank so it copped a new fuel filter and FPR while it was apart.
I think I paid $200 back then but shop around - Wemoto or Honda shop or wherever quotes a keen price. I took the Honda shop as they had stock in Melbourne HQ warehouse and I didn't want to wait for an o/s delivery. All genuine parts, not ever heard of any alternatives.....
It's worth it as it saves finding out the hard way that you have a leak and your oil is being diluted and you are 300kms from home .
Should be good for another 19yrs - easy job.
