Well, I at least have one positive to report from the recent shutdowns/social distancing/etc from the COVID-19 outbreak.

I have two boys, a freshman in high school and a 5th grader. Both play every sport they can, especially the older one who plays SOOOOO much baseball. My life has been consumed by taking kids to sports, watching sports, working out for sports with the kids, etc. Throw on top all the normal parenting stuff, and my own recreational sports that I still play, and I've been left with very little time for other things.

About 1-2 years ago, I took my 1100 apart to graft on a TPS for the 3d mapping. As soon as I took it apart, I ran out of time. It's been sitting dissembled this whole time. Zero miles last year.

This weekend came, and with everything shut down, I realized I have a lot of free time again. So I fired up the garage furnace, moved the bike out of storage, grabbed the bucket of parts, and put it back together. I got it running, stuck the exhaust out the garage opening, synched the carbs, and back in business.

Then I decided to wire in the TPS, check the operation of that (it works, but I'll leave it off until I can test ride it and evaluate it), and fix some previous wiring issues I had. After that, I realized I had a shift star from Captain laying around, so I popped the clutch out, and installed that. Basically, I'm just going thru a check list of things that needed attention.

The next big project is to further clean up the wiring. I need a clean way to panel mount three relays (ignition, wide band oxygen sensors, one spare for future use), and clean up where I took out the factory metal fuse and replaced it with a conventional automotive fuse. I'll have to comb the website to see how you guys did it.

After that, a thorough cleaning and detailing. Then on to the spare motor I have on a stand.

Gotta find the positives where you can,
Brett

That's awesome news Brett. One door closed and another opened. With all the hobbyists here having extra time on their hands, I'm sure we can all find things to do.

Oh yeah, I'm finally finding time to dig into some things I've wanted to do to the bike. Seems like a lot of us are in that boat.

Hi Peter, Why did you want the long spigots? What do you know that I don't? I'm curious.

Peace, Jim

I wonder if those longer spigots would make it torquier?

When I installed my CR33's a few years ago, I also ran into fuel tap clearance issues. But I found I could make it fit eventually. My K+N filters just touch the side panels as is, with the longer spigots I'd probably have to trim the side panels a fair bit.

Yes. Many models in the 90s had them before EFI took over.

OK, so what does it do? What change can it effect to the mixture on a bike with carbs or is it for some other reason?

Nothing to do with fuelling. The TPS tells the ignition control unit where the throttle is and with this information looks up predefined ignition maps and then times the spark appropriately.

Unfortunately the cat is gone to a higher level due to a pack of wandering dogs a few months ago.
We we had the the neighbors leave in a hurry and owing money for the rental just before lock-down .
We found a new friend left behind which has been great for both of us during the shutdown and especially
for my wife .he moved in and has taken over the place as they do and likes HONDA'S ( will fit in) .

Yes Robbo I had to cut a little out of the side panels to allow for the pod filters , and I will have to
ask a higher authority on whether the longer spigot would affect power and torque .

Peter
