Re: Misfire

I took the thing apart several times and didn't even see the one that points back. Obviously from your guys vast experience it must be and I'll be putting it on that one later and hopefully the world can revolve again. I'm sure the egg will wash off. Ears are always open 8) Thanks fellas everybody ...

Re: Misfire

I've put it on the one that points down at the bottom of the tank valve (is this the pitcock valve?) anyway it's on the bottom. On the tank you have the two fuel Ines on the aluminium shut of valve that come out diagonally and I've put the vac pipe on the smaller maybe 5 or 6mm nipple at the bottom ...

Re: Misfire

Hi Mac, Yea I have the vac pipe on the small port on the bottom of the tank valve between the two out lets. I have checked the vac pipe back to where it goes into the rear cylinder and there doesn't appear to be any tee. No kinks in any pipes that I can see, I've stripped the air box right off so I ...

Misfire

Hi Gents, I have just carried out a plug change on my Storm and I thought all was good. Went to take the bike out and it started misfiring like it was only running on one cylinder. I took the bike home, checked the plugs, all okay and fired it up in my garden. It runs sweet for a little while and th...

Re: hi Keef

Hi Keef

I'm relatively new to the forum myself and found the guys who have replied to me really great. I've had a few storm in the past and just got myself a black P reg. needs nothing doing to it so obviously I'm going to pull it to bits!? Lol
Good luck with your storm mate :thumbup:

Branded lines

Hi All,

Probably a silly question but can you pinch branded brake lines with mowle grips in the same way you can rubber ones? Not sure if this will destroy the brade or inner? I want to service the calipers.

Thanks

Re: 10w-30 JASO?

Thanks guys, it will teach me to buy the oil and then look at the work shop manual! Lol I'll use the 10w40 and take the 30 back. I'd rather go with the manual and avoid a potential issue. This is my first post so all you help is really appreciated. [emoji106]

Thanks for that. I wonder why a Honda dealership would sell me the 10w-30?

10w-30 JASO?

Hi all, I've been away from the VTR scene for many years and when I last had one I used to get it serviced at the local dealers. I've now bought a 29 year old Storm with 35k on her and thought I'd change the oil myself. I went to the local dealer and asked them fir oil and they sold me Castro 10w-30...
