Terry... to understand what may be going on with system lets refer
back to my maintenance log when I had a continuous red light when
jumper but the bike operated normally with no red PGM-F1 blink code...
I discovered plastic spigot broken off the Bypass Control Solenoid
Valve... next I discovered #3 & #4 Idle Sync Tubes erroneously
connected to the wrong sensors... and finally I discovered wrong vacuum
tube routing in same area... I rerouted vacuum tubes in accordance to
the shop manual and replaced the broken valve... my take away was if
the sensors are the problem the ECU will blink a code... if the hoses
are routed incorrectly or that valve is broken the ECU will not blink
a code but will run in a limp home mode...

Those 2 diagrams are excellent Larry, now I see where all the bits are in relation to the bike, I will be able to check those items over.
Interesting that on the CSML parts drawing, they list the 4 IMA pots as Ignition adjust - I assume that's wrong, she didn't change in any way when I ran her with them disconnected.
All these complications, know I know why I'm a techno-phobe !

I think she might end up for sale in the summer , back to my old brit bike with CARBS.

I'm sure I'll change my mind once I've ridden her again, addictive engine....

Thanks again, regards Terry.

Get yourself an RC30! Much better appreciation, carbureted, and in my opinion a lot nicer to ride.

I'll qualify my comment by pointing out that I have owned 3 RC45's...

I did have an RC30, the way it reached 13.000 in each gear was fantastic.
I sold it some years ago.
How stupid can you get.
Maybe I should swap the 45 for another 30?

I will be riding the '45 this summer, I'm sure I won't want to part with it !

Regards all

True story.......... In a semi-drunken conversation about three years ago I asked John McGuinness if he would fancy riding my OW01 in the Classic TT Formula 1 race, (my OW01 finished 3rd in 2013). He was with Honda then and said it would have to be a Honda bike if he ever did it. .....................

"So what about an RC30 John"

"Nah, too old-hat, but I'd have a go on your RC45"

Ask him now if he'd still prefer a Honda over an OW01?

Didn't the OW hold the IOM lap record for 7 years or something crazy like that?

Very Happy

He'd probably expect an OW02 now (I don't have one of those)!

Correct, Carl Fogarty held the lap record on an OW01 from 1991 (the Hizzy / Norton Rotary race) until Jim Moodie broke it in 1999, ...........................






on an RC45.

Gentleman (and I use that term loosely) for the record...

In 1991 Steve Hislop on a Silkolene Honda RC30 set record time of 1.52.15.0 at
121.01 mph whereas team mate Carl Fogarty on another Silkolene Honda RC30
set second fastest time of 1.53.31.0 at 119.65 mph...

In 1992 Steve Hislop on a 588 Norton Rotary set fastest time of 1.51.59.6 at
121.28 mph whereas Carl Fogarty on a OW01 Yamaha set second fastest
time of 1.52.04.0 at 121.2 mph

Perhaps McPint noted Guy Martins RC45 IOM test hop... technically speaking the RC45 maybe old but its not "old hat"

A few enjoyable posts there, some class riders too, Guy Martin lives about 30 miles from me, wonder if he wants to buy an RC45?


No-one is going to 'have a go on it ', that's for sure !


Busy finishing off a C95 Benly so the '45 will have to wait to smell tarmac,


Roll on summer
