Cannot locate parts
I'm replacing much of the fuel system since I've been having problems with the bike stalling randomly. I already have a new fuel pump and filters. The bike is pushing 18 years old and I'd rather just replace these parts and know these are no longer questioned points of failure. This along with the vacuum lines as a few are showing signs of cracking.

I cannot find 16010-MCF-003 GASKET SET for a 2001, every site states this part is no longer available. I did find in on Euro site Sites in the US have the set for +2002 but does anyone know if this set of O-rings are the same from 2000-2001 to +2002?

Anyone know of a simple way to test the injectors?

Thanks fella's

Motleyfan 11-13-2019 08:13 PM shows they can get it. I've used them for alot of hard to find parts that have been discontinued from here in the US.

Donít know if you would consider it simple but with the injectors removed you can test with the motion pro tester. I used it to test mine and had the tester mounted in a vise with a drain pan underneath. When you activate you can see the spray pattern so pretty good indication all working and no clogging of the ports.

The part number of that part for that year may be unavailable, but often, the same part for a different year may still be available.
Try subsequent years (2002 to 2006). These are the Fuel Pressure Regulator gaskets.

I appreciate the site. I'll definitely consider them if the 2002 gasket kit does not fit.


That's probably better than what I was considering, aiming the injector into a bucket still hooked to the bike.

Hey Sub,
I was thinking the parts from 2002 and on were the same since the throttle bodies are interchangeable. A buddy replaced his 2001 throttle bodies several years ago with a used set from a 2002 with no problems. I can't see Honda changing the throttle bodies or the gaskets throughout the years.

The SP2 throttle bodies are bigger than SP1. You would need to swap a lot more than just the throttle bodies.
