Well the hooch bike has traveled a long road ...many on this forum know how long the build process was and basically covered three bikes getting to the hooch build ...all steps in the process of getting to my ultimate build that I could pull off ....I’m posting on the SCC forum cause this was the move that made the bike work with all the other mods I did ....simply put after all the mods to the motor ...no stock carbs could feed it ...there capacity was just to small and the vacuum my motor made and the springs of resistance just emptied the carbs of fuel ...I rember when I had stock carbs on a 77 rack ...the bike would launch forward them bog down ..may have been over fueled I’m not sure ...and sometimes it would just quit running ...when that happened the carbs were just drained dry...and obviously the fuel pump could not keep up ...total mismatch of carbs and motor setup ...

Then entered the SCC set up ...it started with a 740 motorcraft dft license copy of a Weber progressive carb and it stills has it ....this is like the biggest carb that Weber made in this style of carb ..it’s bigger than what most users of dft carbs have ....sort of a rare model

Well I worked with this carb for at least two years trying to get the idle circuit from being to rich ..I think the pull this motor has at idle rpm is so great it really suck some gas in ...it would spit gravel at idle speed going up the driveway I had at the time ...I won’t get into long drawn out details but I was able to finally mod the carb enough to get great plug color and excellent mpg and actually aerating my own idle circuit completely different from its stock form ...from that day on the bike really was a one of a kind like no other ...I travel many miles on It and long road trips...once almost echieving 60mpg ....

Now performance...I’m not a great rider in my judgement..I’m just okay in my opinion ...but on my rides to nowhere I would like to get on it some ...in first gear being shaft drive bike it can get wild in a hurry ....especially when the second barrel kicks in ...bike like to do circles won’t stay strait might be als the 1200 final drive is 1/2” off from center line from Honda and it may be Honda did this on purpose to help prevent Cassy jacking I don’t know really never look to see ..should be easy to figure out though ...in second gear I felt comfortable enough to let it romp ...many times this will raise the front wheel off the ground ...hitting third gear doesn’t last long for me ...as the bike approaching 100mph it becomes a handful ...it’s like there is no weight on the front end at all and death wobble is in the game either staying in it or backing down ....there is no telling what this might could do in forth and fifth gear ...I’ve never been there ....the one thing that can accrue on this bike is sometime ir just quits ...it’s obviously draining the bowl dry when this happens

I have looked into this some and changed fuel pumps with no success ...will be going to electric fuel pump on the rebuild of the bike...for sure

...Hmmm. I'm wondering what's going through Joe's mind now. Let me take a stab at it:

"Today the weather is warm. The birds are singing. I smell some kind of flower blooming. I have some things to do. Should I work on the :builder: ...or should I work on the :moped: ? Wonder if I could do both? :head bang:

Wait! I hear a motorcycle coming down the drive. It's my old buddy! Guess I'll do neither. It'll be :beer: instead.

God, I love Springtime"


(Am I close?)

Very close except friend or beer part didnt h¡appen ...I have seen some riding going on ...winter still hanging on tough ...I do have some big projects going on right now and thanks to you guys ...hooch is one of them ....I’m stiil thinking how lucky it is to have such a good low mileage motor to work with ..there’s no doubt that this motor will be like new rebuild I’m hoping ...should be able go as many miles or further than a new bike ....hoping to get rest of bike in this shape and condition ....I’ll probaby start taking the hooch motor apart next ...I have to check things to see if the rear iggy will mount in 1000 frame ...not that it’s going to be use ...there will be some piston notching to do ...the stator wires were cut right at the plug coming out of the rear cover ...not sure how I’m going to go here ...most likely the stator is like brand new ...so I’m thinking fix the wires somehow ...sheesh the clutch is also like brand new I’d say ....seems the bike ran a bit rich in its little running time.....I’m just going to play it as it comes ...not going to make any big deal out of things ...spring here it’s time to ride soon ...not going to make a show bike project out of it now ...or ever really ..I wouldn’t know how to take care of one anyway lol...the 84 bike is a great year in my opinion ....it has the same gearing set up as the 83 1100 had and secondary primary gearing also ...sheesh I wish I had and 82-83 clutch cover...if I did I’d get rid of the hydraulic clutch deal and go to cable ...I hate the hydro clutch set up ...to me it takes some feel out of the working and with power hooch has that’s a big deal to me plus my set up is just badly worn out ....the 84 motor and gearing gets you the tallest 5th gear you can get in the 1200 setup ..I’m sure it’s not much but I’m glad to have it ...hooch could handle another gear easy let alone just slightly taller...so far I havnt found much to discount except for wires cut ...oh and the starter looks funky like it’s casting wasn’t done good ...hope it works good ....

And sure I’ll be rebuilding the injection pump on tractor too....I’m hoping it’s just a major clean up and put back together and reinstall ...only big deal is keeping it all timed right like an oldwing ....the get to know the tractor program is in class lol ...have great day everyone
