    Gday All, I'm in the final stages of restoring a 71 CB250 (K3) and have an oil leak from the top end that keeps plaguing me. I have resealed and replaced the rocker cover gasket several times but it keeps blowing out in the same location which is the corner above the left exhaust valve. When it...
  6. Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Of all the pieces of the rebuild of the CB-250 K4, one part has eluded me since the start almost 2 years ago. Grommet "80102-292-670" appears at least to me, to be unobtainable. I have tried most of the famous spares sites from David Silver Spares, Consolidated Motor Spares, Common Motor to...

    I'm sure this has been asked before. Contemplating how I can achieve the CL style pipes on my nighthawk 250. I've found CL360 exhausts on craigs but before I decided to buy I need some advice. I'm guessing that it wont be a bolt on mod. Anyone else try this?
