1/4 liter 6 cylinder

This is Honda’s RC166 MotoGP bike from the 60’s.  Revving to 20k RPMs to make 65 and sounding beastly.  Not bad for something that has 250cc’s.

Big wing, big flares, & big RPMs.  Contragulations you're winning.

Code 6


Not too long ago, Grey Poupon decides to drop a diagnostic light bomb.  Even though the car is operationally sound,  the check engine light stares me down taunting me.  It must know that smog season is coming up and wishes to antagonize me.  Utilizing the special service tool, aka paper clip, to pull the code from the ECU, the blinking lights inform me that I have an ignition signal issue.  Grey never had issues like this before, usually it’s cars that come by the cave that have this issue.  It usually ends up with me replacing harnesses and/or distributors.  But just when I was going to replace the distributor with a spare in the back, I find out the definitive cause of code 6.  Fortunately, didn’t have to replace anything just soldered everything back together and now everything is good.

Not surprised.

In the process of getting the cage installed.  I took upon myself to remove the windshield.  Since it was already cracked I didn’t have to be extra careful during it’s removal.  But all that didn’t matter since whoever installed did a pretty shoddy job.  The end result was a tremendous amount of rust that accumulated in the windshield channel.  But I'm not surprised with all other shoddy work the previous owner(s) had performed on the car.
