Hi....just want to intoduce myself to the club.....I just picked up a 1987 Honda Hurricane 600 from a friend. I have been trying to find out everything I can about the bike, and I am interested if any of u have personal experiences or knowledge about the bike. One thing I found was an article on the honda website, u guys can check it out here http://www.hondamotorcycle.com/milestonemodels/1987hurricane/ it actually made me feel pretty good about my purchase. The bike looks/runs beautiful. What shops/people do you guys reccomend for repairs ? I have only owned dirtbikes b4, and I did a lot of the work on them myself, with the help/garage of my uncle, but thats not really available anymore. I need a few things right away...

valve adjustment....replace front fork seals....tune up...how much should I be paying for this ? I am a poor college student right now, so I like to do things as economical as possible :cool

Well ill leave it at that for now, I dont really have any friends with bikes, so hopefully there will be some meets/rides locally that I can join in.

I've got an F2 for track days. I had no idea these old Hondas were such a good bike.

Get a manual and ask question. Gotta go now before someone beats me to the first greeting line......... :D

Welcome. Wow, I just read that blurb on the Hurricane. 85 horsepower is what my bike is supposed to put out stock!

yup, the hurricanes were great bikes, they are also very compact, place them alongside the newer 600s and you will be surprised. There used to be a guy that rode a hurricane up to SFU in the spring of 2001, nice silver, was very impressed, neat, tidy package, great bike no doubt about it....

5th Gear in Whiterock/South surrey charges reasonable rates and the Hurricane sold well enough and is a "traditional" engine that it's not a big deal to work on.

Also Imperial on Lane St in Burnaby know their stuff. You'll pay a higher hourly labour rate at dealers opposed to the 2 shops I just mentioned. If you want to save $$ take just the forks into the shop for new seals. You'll have to take the fork legs off and on yourself but you'll probably save 2 hours in labour charges.

I could also do that for you. PM me if you want to bring it over. The key, is like Bruce said. Get a shop manual. They've got everything you need to know. The old Hurricane was a good bike. They were beating RG500s at Westwood.

Yeah, the old Hurricanes are supposed to be great bikes, as long as they don't look like this one:


:D

I used to have an F2 and it was just simply wicked...especially as a second bike.
