A week after my last post, I noticed yet more fuel dripping from the under tank drain. So - time to get a genuine Honda o ring, I thought. Because there is no Honda dealer in Dunedin, I ordered it online; it had to come from Japan. The first one that was sent, got lost in the post. The replacement arrived on the 12th of February.
It didn't fix the leak......now the fuel tap was leaking! So - order a new one. They are still available - the part number is 16950-KY6-043.
This arrived on the 25th of February, and was fitted, along with new fuel and vacuum hoses.
Then today, I took the bike for its warrant of fitness test. It passed, and I had my first ride in over two months. Wonderful!
