I'm re-posting an emailed request for help that I received from a friend who is part of the [email protected]
community. If anybody could help, I thought they would be here on the RC51 forums. This is his original message below...
I am in the process of trying to help Chris Matye, OTT's camera man and producer, put his RC51 back together. Never done one before and I am spending too much time scratching my head (it took 2 hours to get the engine back in).
We need to acquire or borrow a shop service manual and the Honda tool for the engine/frame bolts. I have a torque wrench and tools, so that's all taken care of.
The new motor is in the frame, the swing arm has been reattached and the shock installed.
At this point I need help getting the bike together especially with all the coolant lines and vacuum hoses hence the request for an RC51 expert. I will provide food and beverages and fuel money.
The bike is in Redwood City, just off Marsh Road at the OTT studios. I would like to get his bike finished prior to 12/19 when I head back to the UK until Jan 10th for a vacation and family visit.
Please contact me offline if you can help via [email protected]
Many thanks in advance, and Happy Holidays to everyone
