I believe 14t is stock for the front, no? I went up one, so I think I have a 15t now. I've heard the 16t fits with a newer-gen sprocket cover but I didn't have to do that. If the 15t makes it this...

Looking clean Edward, I like the yellow. Seems like a good deal for fixing up an old Honda! Get that thing road-worthy and get some redline action, you'll love it ;)

Dang Thouse, you picked up a CLEAN one! Well done, looks all stock and minty fresh; even those tires look stock ;)

Got this issue fixed; just needed one of those cheap 3-way adjustable led signal relays. I found a 2pack for $5 and it works perfectly fine.

I install my own tires and these were incredibly easy to spoon on. Little tires like these are a piece of cake compared to big 180s and the like. I think the bead seated with about 40-50psi.

Well I had time today to wire up a relay. I'm happy now, and it's running tops best of all. Too bad it's 108f outside.

Here's my next one: what relay should I look for to correct this slow rate?

Ideally, you would just do full choke and start, no throttle, then ease off the choke as you can. I aim for about 3,000 rpms as it's warming up for the first minute or two.

Nice, just rectified a similar issue on my hardly-ridden Ninjette: wiring/malfunctioning lighting. Ready to ride once I put it back together but the SV has been getting all the seat time.

Thank you, this is starting to make sense. I'll be checking those three wires to see which one has continuity to the fusebox. This is very helpful.

THIS is it! What would this look like? I knew it had to be something like that... the relay simply isn't being told to activate. Do I run a jumper wire somewhere/somehow??

I second Singh2jz's comments :) you need some positive vibes coming your way for sure! But hey, if BonelessSugar can bring a fossil back from the dead, you can't let a little rust get you down.
