Hello Superhawk forum members!

Iím proud to present me as a dutch new Superhawk forum member. Iím not really new to Honda bikeís because Iím collecting them almost all my lifeÖIím a so called super Honda freakÖMy friends call me ďthe legendĒ

My Honda Collection now contains
2x Honda Dax, one in parts and the other one in original A-condition (CT-70 in the US)
1x Honda SS-50Z-K3 (Iíve got it from my 16th (34 now), and Iím restoring it now, to bring it back in itís original state, after all these years bringing me all everywhere, problem free!)
1x Honda ZB50 (not runner, but will be soon and will be sold, I need spaceÖ)
1x Honda VTR1000F Firestorm

I donít where all this Honda fanatism came from but itís in my blood now and wonít go away anymore. I love the perfection of a Honda in general, everything is superb engineered: fits perfect, looks good, right material choice etc etc. (yes Iím a mechanical engineer..hahahahaha!)

BUT, I finally bought me a Firestorm, the bike Iíve been dreaming of it since it came out in Ď97. But after long waiting, a nice one came on my way, in the colour I always dreamed of: the black-red one.

Itís a í98 one with a 2004 engine with only 6000km on it! This motor swap was done by the last owner because the old engine gave up at 43000km, due to the, you all know everything about, CCT failure! (Iím still worried about the fact if the 2004 original CCTís are problem/failure free. I.hope so otherwise Iíll buy some manual APEís immediately)

I hope to read and learn a lot on the forum about the ďpoor mans ducatiĒ!

welcome to the forum, I agree just replace the cct's sooner than later, although I would say you don't have to worry until you get over 25,000 km.

And be careful, she's got a little more Torque than those 50's.

Howdy! I did my CCTs before I rode it, as it was a build from the ground up, why not. This BBS was even more helpful than the factory service manual.
Thanks Guys!

thanx all for the warm welcome!

Has anybody some pictures of dismantled original CCT's? I had a discussion with some friends about modifying the originals. In other words, make the original CCT's manual... Has anybody any experience with this?
