    Project Logs
    I decided to start a log for my CB160 "refurbishing" project. This will not be a restoration but I figured some people might find the process interesting. I find I always learn something new by watching the way other approach projects so maybe someone will pick something up from this one. I...
  2. CB160 - Refurbish or leave it alone?

    Engine Discussion
    I wasn't sure where to post this so since the issue primarily involves the engine at the moment I figured this section made the most sense. I bought this CB160 several years ago and it has been my go-to Vintage Days bike ever since. It runs well and no matter how it's put away each fall it...

  7. CB160 Charging

    Electrical Discussion

  15. Too lean? Detonation? CB160

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    DH8A spark plugs show white insulator with some tiny brown specks - specks reportedly indicate detonation so thinking lean mix... However... insulator also shows a smoke ring at the base so main jet and plug heat range seem compatible. Also it gets a higher top speed with a leaner main jet...
