Back on the road
« Started on: 21-Dec-20, 13:28 »
After 11 years off the road due to failures and 6 years in storage while I was overseas swanning around, the old Turbo is now running and registered again.  Goes like a train.  Replacement heads, new cam chain, stator, brake lines etc.  It's amazing what you have time to do when you're retired.  Winter work still to do:
.  it runs a little dodgy under 3000 rpm so I will replace boost sensor, might replace P1 as well
.  fast idle when cold not working so will rebuild the air valve over winter
.  will probably put brake master cylinder kits in front and rear
.  the fairing is a little untidy so might get some paint work done
.  will need a new front tyre as well

But all in all, very happy with the old girl.

Cheers,
Rod

Good to hear from you Rod and good to hear the Turbo is back on the road.

Might try to catch up in 2021 sometime, maybe a mini CX Rally is in order.

One more winter problem to solve.  The fuel gauge goes from full to 3/4 full normally then drops to empty, rheostat issues I expect.  Interestingly the Reserve light doesn't come on.  More reading to do.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is enjoying a relaxing Boxing Day.

Cheers,
Rod

For anyone that can't be bothered making their own I notice Unifilter Australia, http://unifilter.com.au, supply air filters for the CX500 Turbo.  Their order number is NU 4179 and they are about $40 delivered.

I got a Unifilter recently to replace the one in my Turbo that completely fell apart when I touched it.

The original Honda filter is no longer available
