My Honda Spada

My Spada is a used import, from Japan. It has a low odometer reading, which may not be correct - the numbers do not line up, suggesting it may have been clocked.

On the other hand, there is little wear on the brake disks, and the bike appears to have its original rear tire.

Because I am unsure of the bike's correct milage, I have changed the spark plugs, the coolant, and the front fork oil. Some time soon I will have to replace the fork seals, as oil is leaking past the right hand seal.

Thanks for the link,

Have a small issue. I have done the tuning to the maximum. bike is going smooth and the plug reading is also good, and i m using NGK iridium. The issue is like this Jold, yesterday after riding 10-20 km s, I stop the engine and stayed there for about 2 hours time. then I started the engine. It got start. but nearly 1/8 liter of a fuel came out from the exhaust. Then I accelerated it a bit. and it came back to normal. I wanna correct this ASAP, coz I m gonna go long trip next week. Please advice me...

Thanks.

Hi there, Anuradha. It sounds to me that you have a problem with a carburettor. Maybe one of the float valves is not seating correctly?

Hi Jold,

I have replaced two floater valves. now the overflowing problem solved it seems. One thing have to ask you, how many turns I have to open the pilot screw for better performance and best fuel consumption? current is 1 1/4 for each carb. and what is the good fuel level? is it half of sump or 3/4? please let me know.

Thanks
Anuradha.
