Thanks!

It does look good in pictures but in reality it really rough.

For hating that car you did a damn good job on it. I'd pay you to do mine.

After I adjusted the valves and went to start it it just turned over quickly without firing. It did that a couple times then it fired up. Never did it previous to that and hasn't done it since, until today.

Fifteen minutes of a no start condition. Then it fired up just like normal.

I wasn't in a place where I could diagnose it but it sounds like it's either not getting spark or fuel.

Anyone know how these things act when the fuel pump is on the way out?

Most likely your main relay is on the way out. That will keep the fuel pump from turning on. Very common Honda issue.

I'm a monumental moron.

Seriously I'm dumb.

I bought this car back in January. Put two new tires on the rear. Had the wheels on and off at least ten times working on brakes and checking out the suspension.

And in nearly eight months I have never.

Not once.

In that entire time.

Checked the air pressure in the front tires. LF had 45psi RF had 74!!!

No wonder the car was harsh on rough and broken pavement. Adjusted properly it's obviously much more compliant. I can not believe I've never checked that. I'm normally so fastidious about such things. The bike gets checked every day. Don't be like me. Check your air pressure.
