    Just wanted to jump back to this and add the happy-ending. With the new chain as the last thing on the repair list, it was time for a shakedown ride. I went out for a 50 mile ride last Saturday and...

    Bill,
    I have a set of carbs from a cb450sc on my bench at home. When I get home tonight, I can take some pics of the choke linkage and send them on.

    Thanks for the extra info Jim. The cb450sc has a guard on the rear sprocket but does not get in the way of an o-ring chain.

    I got my new chain on this Friday. I didn't realize how bad the old one...

    CB450SC chain type

    Hello all.

    I just wanted to drop a post up here to help any future searchers.

    The CB450SC from 1982-1986 came with an o-ring chain, 530 size with 106 links. The original "factory" chain has no...

    New bikes are great. They are less finicky, more efficient, cleaner (emissions), run easily on the swamp water that they now call gasoline, and have extended service intervals. Sometimes that's not...

    Since your lights work in Park, that tells me that your 15A main fuse is good.

    Does the brake light come on when you press the rear brake pedal?

    Yep. The new chain will be here tomorrow.

    I ordered RK heavy duty (non-oring) chain. It comes with a clip-style master link. I've only ever used riveted type before. Any issue with the clip link?

    It looks like the control switch (dimmer, turn signal, horn) has a ground connection to it via the green wire. It is not used as a contact in any of the internal switches, so i'll assume that it just...

    I pulled the valve cover off again this afternoon to have a look. 5 of the 6 valves had clearances that were 1 thousandth too wide (one valve actually had 2 thousandths too wide). The way the rocker...

    Remember, your test light is measuring the potential difference between two points. Where was the ground clip when you measured your clutch handle? The problem might lie there instead.

    I guess that determining normal noises from a cell-phone video is tough without having something to compare it to.

    I set the valve clearance to 0.004" intake and 0.006" exhaust. I followed the...

    Normal noises?

    Hi again guys. I took the bike for a fairly long ride tonight to "shake the bugs out". It ran great, but I'm hearing a tapping from the motor and I'm not sure if I should be worried. The bike is a...

    I'm not sure how similar our bikes are. This issue I had was with the ignition switch itself, not a connector. I had to remove the headlight to gain access to the back of the ignition switch. Two...

    Jim,
    I like the new headlight. Looks like a great improvement. Is that one of the LED volt meters you see on Ebay? That is also a handy mod. Is it waterproof?

    I'm curious as to what the voltage...

    That's a beautiful bike. Enjoy.

    I lived and worked around Madison for 3 years back in the 80's. It's a great place to live.

    Thanks for the 2nd video. What's interesting to me is that your forks seem way stiffer than mine. I don't think my seals are bad as I don't lose oil or air pressure. However, mine bounce much easier...

    Great video. Thanks for sharing.

    I would add two things:
    1) Before you start, slowly press the schrader valve at the fork top to remove any air pressure.
    2) The correct oil amount for the...
