1990 Fl400R for sale - UK
« on: May 06, 2012, 04:48:04 AM »
Hey guys, well having owned my Pilot for several years now, it's time to move on - that, and it needs a bit of work that I'm not capable of carrying out myself, and I don't want to spend more on it considering I use it for maybe 2 hours a year in total.

I've spent quite a bit on it already, and was going to try to rebuild it as new, but I now live in London so have less time to use it that I expected.

The good stuff:
Brand new Works G Series rear shocks (Aug 11 - c1 hour use since)
Brand new full A Arm rebuild (Aug 11 - c1 hour use since)
Newly repainted front rims (Aug 11 - c1 hour use since)
Wiseco piston, Boysen reeds and new drive belt fitted a couple of years ago (maybe 5 hours' use since then!)
Tyres, Carb, clutch, gearbox etc all work fine.

The machine is located in Cambridgeshire, England.

The bad stuff:
Aesthetically it's not perfect!  The plastics are okay, and it's all solid - it's just showing its age a bit. 
It won't start.  I've diagnosed this as a lack of crank case compression, given that all electrics are fine, and I can get fuel into the carb by sucking/blowing on the crank case-to-fuel-pump pipe.

I'll consider all offers, but bear in mind the Works G series cost a fortune!  I can also include the original Pilot shocks + reservoirs (in case you want to rebuild them).  Alternatively, I can remove the Works to sell separately.  Up to you.

When the engine is fixed, it'll drive true.

Thanks for reading!

Glad to hear you got it sold, and thanks for letting us know.
The usual 'my two cents' disclaimer applies. :)

No problem, and thanks for the support over the last couple of years.  Hopefully one day I'll be back!  I still have an urge to restore one to brand new condition.
