A 1965 Honda Super 90 - that was my first bike! Good to know there are some still around.
The 919 should be great project and there is a lot of good info in this forum if you have any questions.

Welcome!

Honda 919 new valve shims and CamChain , Honda S90 progress

Came in the mail today, so jazzed to got all the valves back to factory spec and a cam chain that’s not stretched, someone used an ape tensioner I believe because the chain was stretched and it’s easier swap than take the head apart. Also rebuilt the Honda s90 engine back together this morning, stayed up all night. New shift drum pins and forrks to bring her back to life, dreaded inability to shift above 1st. Leaked like a ... all new gasket set , gone cyclinder and new rings, cute little piston.

What's the story behind the 919 in the pic? You obviously didn't get that one for $500.

I admire guys that can rebuild/restore motorcycles, cars, boats, airplanes,or anything like that.

What does the $500 919 look like now?

Welcome! It’s been awhile but welcome to the hornet Home !! I haven’t been too active ever since the website started having issues, and I hate logging in on my mobile device. But, there is a lot of useful information here by some top notch fellas, so do some searching ! You might get inclined to start a single sided swing arm conversion, or debate the source of the 919 exhaust stink, or do an inverted fork set up.. lol. Just remembering reading old posts. I forgot who my buddies were on here BUT YOU ALL KICK ASS !!

That little S90 is quite a bike. My dad rode one back and forth to college with his brother on the back. They put 30,000 miles on that little thing, and it was the bike I learned how to ride on.

My dad still has it - but it needs some TLC. His memory is going. I would love to get it reborn while he can still admire it.

Decided to pull the motor out and put in new connecting rod valves, can I have the stock crack resurfaced to take 2015 cbr1000rr bearings, they look to be way more efficient at oil distribution? Bike was missing a few parts but it is fun as hell to restore.

Still need a replacement gauge cluster, the one that came with the rpm gauge and temp gauge don’t work. Or need a picture of the circuit board to make sure components and wiring harness are there. It seems like the wiring harness on my cluster don’t match, my bike is a 2002 but the cluster is a later model. Does anyone have a cluster for sale?

Congrats on the new bike!
IDK what a connection rod valve is, but the 919 motor is well known for lasting a really long time. We have some here with > 100,000 miles.

I've seen the clusters on eBay but some like to run a digital aftermarket setup. I'd post a wanted in the classified because several have 'upgraded' and wouldn't need their original one.

Meant to say connecting rod bearings, the previous owner spun a connecting rod bearing and put in an APE cam chain tensioner in to take away the noise of the loose cam chain clatter which wasn’t coming from the camchain at all, I put a stock cam chain tensioner back onto my 919 but time to take out and swap or service my crank and I would like to know if I can upgrade to more efficient connecting rod bearings. Like the ones on 2015 cbr1000rr which have two oil holes and a center oil groove on the bearing. “Connecting rod valve” lol I can’t believe I said that. Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

Thanku for your advice on posting an ad. Intriguing idea on upgrading your cluster to digital. Which ones did you install and was it “plug and play” easy install? And what brand digital gauge cluster did you install?

I didn't do an upgrade on mine, I'm fine with the stock setup, but I know a number of people here have upgraded theres.

I'd look under some build threads and ask in the classified. Just post a 'wanted' in the classified.

there is a thread on here that shows the different wiring on the gauge between the 02-03 and 04+. My bet is they didnt change the pin configuration in the plugs for the gauge which is why it isn't working.
