  2. Cl450 Seat for Sale $20

    Parts For Sale
    Hey all- Clearing out some unneeded parts and what not this winter. I’ve got a seat that came with/didn’t perfectly match my 1974 CB450. From what I’ve read it should fit cl450s from 68-74. That said, I want it gone to a good owner. Shipping will prob cost more than anything. I’d take $20 plus...
  3. Stalling in 1st gear

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    76twin- have you heard of any aftermarket master cylinders in particular? The one posted above doesn’t have any reviews. Not sure if maybe people are using one from 4into1 they love, for example. Thanks everyone! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thank you everyone! I agree his time IS worth it, but I think I have to remove a few line items here. Was thinking: (1) I'll do my own brake cylinder (2) I'll have him set the carbs right (since I failed) (3) I'll skip the re-jet, and do that myself IF I even need it. I just read online that...
  5. Stalling in 1st gear

    Hey 66Sprint and HondaPete! (or whoever wants to chime in), I ended up bringing my bike to a shop because I couldn't figure this out. I did a 100% rebuild on the bike myself, but I am new to this....so I needed help. The one-guy-shop came highly recommended and I really liked him. Here's what...
  6. Stalling in 1st gear

    Well, I haven't test driven it yet (pouring rain), but I think I got it corrected in my garage! I put the bike on its center stand and I played around with the clutch until having it in 1st with the clutch pulled/rear-brake depressed didn't stall the bike. Now to adjust my idle down to 1200...

    Hell ya, thanks again! I will update once I get out of work (if I can get home before dark....after that and the neighbors start complaining!)

    Hey all- Last week I replaced the clutch cable and throttle cable on my freshly rebuilt bike, but now I can't get the bike to take off after I put it in 1st. It always stalls no matter as I try to take off. I can't figure this out. Here's a video of it happening: I replaced my old clutch...
  9. Free 74 cb450 Cylinder block/jug- needs sleeve

    Parts For Sale
    Hi all- I have a cylinder jug for my bike that I don’t need. Two fins damaged on the side, not bad. Also there is a crack in the cylinder sleeve at the bottom that protrudes out the base (long story...let’s just say I dropped it trying to get a stick piston out). Anyway- these are kinda...

    In the photo, is the petcock off or on reserve? I bought this thing cheap and I KNEW it was a mistake!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ok I’m going to try all this tonight BUT I may have a new rookie mistake. I thought the below position for my petcock was OFF. Apparently it is not. The line seems to have filled itself up while it sat. Should I be concerned about gas in my oil now that it sat this way for a week? Up until now...

    Thanks Pete! Nigel- If the right cylinder does not spark with the points pulled open (and the spark plug itself removed, grounded by holding it against the engine side) then what does that mean? My coils, condenser, plugs and plug caps are new! Phil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Interesting. I almost can’t believe it about the oil not draining when removing the stator cover, but I’ll do it tonight anyway to double check that I timed my points correctly in relation to piston position. Thanks Pete. I will also double check my wiring vs the diagram tonight, but I just...

    Not sure what I did, but checking my wiring, opening/closing the points, and suddenly, Houston, we have a left spark... So that’s great news...kind of...

    Ugh. So I definitely have the frame grounds correct. I removed the powder coating under all of my grounds, used a little patrolman jelly to encourage a perfect connection, too before bolting down. Even did that for the ground under the gas tank seat/rubber. Not sure what this could be. As for...

    Alright, bad news... My new coils have been installed but I still have no spark in my brand new spark plugs, no thanks to my brand new caps and brand new coils. As for other suspicions... I do have one spare wire (I think it is a ground wire) not being used near my coils. I figured it was a...

    Ahh **** I was testing continuity between the left plug cap and right plug cap- hah. Regardless- my caps are new. And my continuity reading is too high for the spark plug/coil wire. They are super stiff and I bent them a bit getting them into place, so hopefully that’s it. A new set of two from...

    Twin- ahh interesting. So based on what you wrote I turned on the bike, set to run, and inserted a prod from my multimeter into one plug cap each (the caps are brand new by the way). I’m not getting any reading. Hmm Update: I set the ohm setting higher to 20k, and I am getting a reading of 6.07...

    Twin- Thank you very much. I updated my last post with the readings, but in short, my ohms at the spark plug caps is above 15 (I think you meant 15 not 5 for that). I didn’t realize higher was worse. So that’s my issue. I doubt any brick and mortar shop carries them so I’ll order online. As...
