  1. Need help with my 1972 cb175

    Engine Discussion
    I cant get any ignition, I have good spark and compression so I assumed my issue was fuel. But my fuel levels are good and I have taken apart my carbs a couple times now and everything looks good, Jets are clear, floats are intact and needles are still sharp, any ideas? I have no idea what to do.

The same year cb175 uses headlight part number 33120-292-673 and is widely available...
