Re: FS: 1986 Honda Elite Deluxe - make offer

That is....interesting. S'all I'm gonna say.

Oh, except to suggest that you look at the possibility that the high idle is caused by an intake leak, either from a cracked boot between the carb and intake, or if a hard mount carb, then either loose intake bolts or a faulty gasket. Be an easy fix if that's what it is.

GLWS!

Re: FS: 1986 Honda Elite Deluxe - make offer

It's not just high idle - it also tends to die on cold starts if you don't give it throttle. That lead me towards a carb jetting issue.

I'd still need to de-glaze the clutch, but I can definitely look at the carb boots. It was behaving like this ever since I had a friend clean the carbs; it had gotten varnished from sitting for a couple years.

Thing is, if I have to replace a carb boot, that part is probably not available. I guess I could get the guys at work to make me one - we have a rubber fabrication division.

Thing is, I ride so very rarely now, it may not be worth the hassle of fixing. At this point, I'm just looking to free up garage space.

I was surprised - the guy drove down from Michigan to pick it up.
