If it's not worn plates, there are a couple other possible causes of your slippage problem. BBecause the bike has a "wet" clutch, if you use any oil products with molly in them, thinking you are doing yourself a favor with that old engine, you are actually preventing the plates from doing their job. Also, if you don't measure your oil level accurately (and the level is LOW consistently) it will cause the same problem to "seemingly" exist.
My two cents.

Sounds like the clutch plates are either worn, or glazed over. its not that the bike is over heated, they just cant handle the heat anymore.

I have a1984 vf1100s v65 sabre i was riding along and lost power the bike continued to run on like half power then died completely. the following morning it did restart. i put a house hold electrical...


Hi, Mrklave and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test, your battery may show 12.5 volts but has little or zero amps and must be replaced.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting, leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or CDI or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

When I first start my 84 Honda V65 SABRE, after its been sitting overnight or longer. I full choke it then start it. It idles very slow and almost stalls if I give it throttle it stalls. If I just leave it...


check for a vacume leak, as its been along time since i've looked at one of these is there a vacuum pipe on the distributor, this is the advanced timing if it has one on this engine, there is a diaphragm in this that over time can leak, this leaking would make hard starting on cold start if its failing.

I have a 1985 vf 1100 sabre, the left hand switch assembly is missing the high/low beam selector switch and turn signal switch... the part is discontinued and I cannot find a spare anywhere. My question...


You can take any switch off of any bike as long as it has the things you need on it. If you open the switch , you can see which colored wires go where. You can double check with a voltage meter. I have rewired switches in the past and used the connectors of of the old switch so everything matched up color wise, plug-in wise,etc. That way if you have to take it off you do not have to figure out what color does what all over again. I have three old Goldwings none of which have the original switches on them.
