Before you start getting into any project always make sure you do the research!
I’ve been working on Honda’s and other mechanical things for over 13 years and from my own experience doing the research before I started the project has always yielded great results. I will admit I am not the first to pickup a book and read it but as soon as I start looking at magazines or articles on the Internet that have pictures I get interested real fast. This is one of my main reasons for running this blog is for people of all mechanical expertise to find the information they are looking for in one place with lots of visual material.
Forums are also a great place for information but be careful how and where you post your questions because you might get called a NOOB or get flamed for not using the search function. So I advise you to always try searching for your question before posting a new forum post as it’s probably been covered a number of times before. Good luck and remember Google and Wikipedia is a great place for information.
