  2. Any experience of adding a front brake light switch to CA77/CL77

    Electrical Discussion
    How do Despite having torn down my CL77 to it's frame and component parts over the last week or so, it's only just occurred to me that neither it, nor the CA77, have a front brake switch. I assume that the law changed sometime in the late 60's 'cos the SL350 K0 has a switch built into the...

    Hey all, I took the bike out yesterday and a few blocks from home I heard a noise and then instantly lost the use of my rear brake, the pedal locked in place. I got home to discover that the retaining bolt which holds the outer case of the drum brake at the 6 o'clock position had fallen out...

    Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hello All. So I have just started putting together my CB360 project (I bought it from the PO in pieces). I is my first build and I did not realize that the PO cut the brake pivot off - I'm guessing to go with rear sets and a cleaner look. Sooooo, I purchased slipstream bolt on rear sets and...

    I would like to upgrade to a stainless line, but the only ones I can find online range from 18"-34". I measured mine at 48". Is that right? I cannot find one that long to save my life. I'm new to this, so I'm learning more and more each day.

The only purpose of that...

    Hello everyone! It has been awhile since the last time I posted, but I have hit a brick wall with a brake issue so I figured I would ask the experts.

  15. Rear Sets on a CB450 K5?

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    Hey all, Finally getting around to installing my rearsets. The shifter side I have planned out fairly straight forward: drill into the gear shift lever, angle it upwards and attach with threaded rod and heim joint. But the brake side has got me pretty stumped. As you all know, the K5 is one of...

    Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    Sorry if there was already a post on this - I'm not finding an exact thread to count on. I'm about to order new brake pads for the front disk and rear drum and wasn't certain on which brands to go through. Bike Bandit shows up with a number of brands I'm also not certain which ones would be...
