    Hoonda - take 2

    So, as some of you may know I decided to buy Hoonda a few months ago. I bought it off the guy who got it off Boxer, so it looked a bit different by the time it made it into my hands.





    When I got the bike it wasn't running and it sat there for a couple of months. Fast forward and managed to get it to a mates house who is a mechanic and we started stripping down and diagnosing. (Bike would turn over but not fire up, sometimes it would back fire). Pulled the rocker cover off to check all was good and on re-assembly, piece by piece, we realised that the firing order had been connected up wrong. Swapped the leads round correctly and boom, what do you know she fired up.

    Even though she started she is still wetting plugs on startup and not running well

    Discovered that a plug thread was stripped so bike sat for a couple of months. Finally got back to it and took the bike back to my mate where we pulled the motor out and stripped the head off to see what we're gonna do













    While we had the motor out decided to have a look at the cylinders and 2 of the bores have some decent wear in them.

    Discussed different options on what to do for the damaged plug thread and in the end decided to just get another head, thank you Boxer again - he just happened to have one lying around



    and Fuck you Aus Post...



    Good thing i don't have need for the rocker cover

    Managed to make some time this weekend to get back into it and keep stripping down the engine



    Old head vs new (2nd hand) head



    Well, the new head needed to be stripped down too anyway









    Cases split



    and everything bagged and tagged




    Bit of a comparison of new vs old



    Bit of wear on this one

    I'm surprised the first thing you did wasn't hitting it with a rattle can of Aussie Export flat black!

    Fuck the paint, everyone seems to be hung up on it.

    I'm focusing on the engine, a Big bore, turbocharged bike and everyone is focusing on paint....

    I'd draw dicks all over it just to piss people off even more about the paint... Paint is the last thing you should think about or even give a shit about.

    Are you changing the compression? If you are lowering it don't go too much cause it'll be a dog un til it gets boooooooost.
    How many boosts does it/will it run? all of them?
