Most bike take about 3 qts, but I would put in two and then check it and go from there. Use full synthetic motorcycle oil, 5w30, hope this helps.

    I'm sure that a fairing can be found, but it will take some looking. Did you try ebay yet? There are Honda shops with Old stock parts all over the place. Just have to do some digging. Hope this helps.

3.3 i own an 87 and 88 never overfill...never put it to the full mark and you always measure it standing up and just drop the cap down. dont screw it in.

    only use 10w 40 sj honda motor oil nothing else!

  • steve t Aug 15, 2010

    best oil is 10w40sj Honda motor oil.. its the only brand i use in these bikes. don't ever use anything else! and if you notice slipping out of gears a lot, that means your oil needs to be changed, believe me i own two of these bikes and know all the tricks!

The honda manual calls for 3.4 liters drain and filter. Also 5w 30w is the best oil for this bike

SOURCE: have an 1987 honda hurricane F-1 600. Can't get

talk to me dude, i own an 87 and an 88, tell me exactly what it does and sounds like. On my 87, i had a time for about two months that my bike would never start, but it would always push start. I troubleshot every part of that bike, replaced fuel pump and fuel relay took apart push start switch changed plug wires replaced fuel filter and then i had to get out the schematics and ring out every damn wire in the whole circuit from the spark unit to the "PULSE" generators. I found one set of pulse wires totally open and the other had low resistance...since my bike is a rat bike and the fairings are already off, i just took the left side generator cover off and there was a lot of oil in there and i found out that this is normal, my 88 does the same thing...but the problem is that especially in summer time when its extremely hot the hot oil puddles down in there and literally cooks the pick-ups, you'll see them there's two square black shaped blocks with metal tabs sticking i visually saw that one of them was cooked and the voltmeter confirmed it so i went to a salvage yard and picked one up for $50 and installed it and i'll be damned, it was like music to my ears again..a normally starting bike, no more push starting tell me does it push start?..and dont tell me your like a guy a met at the Rockstore who just bought an1988 NT 650 hawk and was having trouble getting his bike started. Him and his friend were swapping batteries because his was drained from so many attempts to start it..i"m sure he probably fried his starter too from doing all that..well i couldnt stand to see this awesome looking classic bike being abused when i new there was nothing wrong with it because i saw him riding the thing up and down the Snake all day...i said hey did you try and push start it first before you wasted all your time swapping batteries? and at least he had the balls enough to tell me that he didnt know how. Its o.k., im an old school guy and you young guys just need to learn..i told him how and he was still reluctant, so he said could i do it, and i Immediately said yes!! and get a chance to ride an NT 650 hawk.. a very rare bike, hell yeah, i'll push start it, but you at least get me started im, tired and he said o.k. i said faster, faster... the key was on gear in neutral, raised up in seat, clutch in, slam down into first ,let out clutch exactly when i slam down into the seat an Viola! it started first time, so i took it for a little ride down the street to clean out his dirty fuel filter and charge up his battery, and it wasn't too bad a bike, but my Hurricance would kicks its *** in a heart beat..right bronci2? these Hurricanes are probably one of the fastest bikes off the line, that you'll ever own, i even beat an CBRXX Blackbird,( the first ever fastest production line bike ever made off the line, and the guy was pissed so when he got it into third gear he was screeming by i want one of those too! 177 mph top speed, dont worry about the fuel pump its probably o.k. yes its very quiet, and doesn't make noise, well this is how you can check it take the pump off and drain it then reinstall it and when it first starts to prime you'll hear it until it fills up fact you'll know when your pump is going bad because you can hear it. take your generator cover off and have a look inside and see if anything looks burnt in there if it doesnt then ring out the wiring you should get a resistance reading of 450 to 500 ohms on two sets of wires. to find where to check this follow the wire harness up from the cover to the first disconnect. then you can ring right in to the wires from there. let me know if it push starts first? always try a push start first before wasting all your time because 50% of the time its either the battery is low or bad fuel(water) or clogged fuel filter. dont ever sell that bike you'll be it into the ground.. i got mine for $500 dollars and raced it for over two years now, and put over 30k extremely hard miles on it and i've crashed it three times and i picked it up and it started everytime one time it took two attempts but it started. these things are bullet proof but the key to making it last is a lot of oil just go by instinct..if you thrash the bike a lot like i do, then it needs more frequent oil changes, a girl rider that i passed on her liter bike waved me over at the track and said hey i saw smoke coming somewhere out of the back of your bike and she didn't know if it was my brakes or what so another rider came up to see what the commotion was about and she said oh my! i saw smoke coming from somewhere! and the guy said yeah i saw it too..its coming from your exhaust pipe..and i was like ill be damned, smoke coming out of an exhaust pipe i road it around and didn't see what i thought was alot but then again i did crash it once an broke an oil pump chain and only had two miles to go home but it had like 48k miles on it and i wanted to see just how tuff these bikes are so i road it home and found that a lot of little metal particles where in the oil because the chain was eating up a loose bolt, so i drained it an installed a new chain and i"ve still been riding it and racing it but i did notice in the last race that it did seem to lose a little top end speed so yeah it only goes 133 mph instead of 140 so what! i have an almost brand new 88 and i took it to the track and its way quicker and more responsive through the entire rpm range totally unlike my 87 ,but hey its only got 15k on the odometer. My 88 will do 80 to125 on the track in 6 seconds when im in a race tuck position, my 87 takes about twice as long to get up to that speed but it does get up there.
try and push start it if it doesnt start the rap on the fuel pump a little thenturn the key on and cycle the kill switch on and off this supposedly cycles or primes the pump if needed.
later Mr Hurricane!

Need to change oil any tips and how many quarts go back 3?

You will need at least 4 quarts of oil , a spin on filter, and a filter wrench. Most Honda's of your vintage use 3.4 quarts so fill carefully and do not over fill the motor. Check the level with the motorcycle standing up straight. Be sure to use only oil that has the JASO MA certification on the label. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label it will shorten the life of the wet clutch and transmission gears. Use 10w-40 in colder climates and 20w-50 in summer or warmer climates. Synthetic oils will help your cycle run cooler and shift easier.
