CHECKING THE OIL PRESSURE
FRAME AND SUSPENSION
- The efficiency of the lubrication system is dependent on the oil pump delivering oil at the correct pressure.
This can be checked using an oil pressure gauge and adapter; Honda supplies a gauge and adapter (Pt. Nos. 07506-3000000 and 07510-4220100).
- The oil pressure is checked by removing the oil pressure switch and screwing the adapter and gauge into the crankcase as follows.
On 600 models the switch is located on the top right side of the crankcase, just behind the engine number, and on 1000 models it is situated on the right side of the crankcase, just below the right crankshaft end cover.
- Remove the necessary fairing sections to gain access to the oil pressure switch (see Chapter 6).
Prior to carrying out the pressure test, check the engine oil level and top up if necessary. Start the engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
Stop the engine, disconnect the wire from the oil pressure switch, and unscrew the switch from the crankcase whilst taking great care not to burn your hands on the hot engine unit.
- Start the engine and increase the engine speed to 5000 rpm, noting the reading obtained on the pressure gauge.
If the system is working normally, the pressure should be within the range given in the Specifications at the start of this Chapter.
If it exceeds the higher figure by a considerable amount it is likely that the relief valve is stuck closed. If this is the case the relief valve must be removed and inspected as described in Section 16.
If the oil pressure is significantly below the lower figure the oil pump should be removed for inspection as described in the following Section.
REAR SHOCK ABSORBER LINKAGE - INSPECTION AND RENOVATION
- Thoroughly clean all components, removing all traces of dirt, corrosion and old grease.
- Inspect all components closely, looking for obvious signs of wear such as heavy scoring, or for damage such as cracks or distortion.
- Carefully lever out the dust seals, using a flat-bladed screwdriver, and check them for signs of wear or damage; renew them if necessary.
Worn bushes or bearings can be drifted out of their bores, but note that removal will destroy them; new bushes or bearings should be obtained before work commences.
The new bushes or bearings should be pressed or drawn into their bores rather than driven into position. In the absence of a press, a suitable drawbolt arrangement can be made up as described below (see illustration).
