Wow! 883?! That's like owning a four banger, RWD, open differential Ranger!

That is a heck of a lot of miles for a bike though. Sounds like a good one.

Its really not that bad, it hangs with my dads 96ci up until about 85-90.
There by no means "race bikes" but we don't ride them like grannys either

I know alot of guys say that higher octane fuel dont help for stock motors, but I'm here to tell you, I run 110 in my bike and it makes a huge difference over 87 or even 93

It seems like the longer/harder it gets rode the better it runs, of course I have also heard that motors run there best right before they blow up!

A guy on CL advertising for painting is all I have checked into.

That's certainly true for the 2.0L in the 1997-2001 CR-Vs. If you don't adjust the valve lash regularly that is...

You let them get too tight and you're looking at some burnt valves and a replacement cylinder head. $3000 right down the drain...
