    Hello all, I have a 1974 CB450 that has a 1975 500T motor that was put in it by a local motorcycle shop after my 450 motor died on me. I have been continuously restoring and repairing this motorcycle for over a year now, and yet have only ridden it (while it was running correctly) maybe twice...
  2. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Title says it all, when fuel is turned on, the right hand carb starts leaking fuel from the brass nipple the protrudes from the float bowl. When she starts up the flow eventually subsides and stops. I recently did a carb "rebuild", what do you guys think is the problem. Included is a picture...
  3. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hey all, Happy to say that I've undertaken my first project bike, a '75 500t! I'm unhappy to say that the bike has it's share of problems, but not enough to scare me away! One such problem was the state of the gas tank. It was in poor condition as it was, lots of dents and scratches...
  4. Project Logs
    First time poster here. Picked up a CB500t recently with 6k miles and relatively little rust. Previous owner was a firefighter with plans to turn it into a cafe racer but never got to it. As much as I love the cafe racer aesthetic, my plan is to keep it as stock as possible. I have no doubt I...

  6. Manuals and Technical Documents
    Hi folks, I don't think this inconsistency in the shop manual has been identified quite as directly as this before, though I am very surprised by this as many many people must have been very confused over the years and talked about it before, and its more likely my lousy searching - in which...

    I am going through the process of tuning up a cb500t recently bought and I am having the worst time with the oil drain plug. At first it wouldnt budge, but after a trip to the store for a giant breaker bar and 19mm socket I was able to get the dang thing to move. Now it seems to be just...
  10. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hey Guys, I've got a 1976 CB500T that I've been resto-modding. The bike has gone through a rebuild some time ago, and I'm finalizing the build by trying to dial in carbs. I've ridden the bike around town multiple times, the most recent ride started out great, then after a few miles I started...

  12. Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Gurus, I have been doing some research on the fork threads here to see if I can find an answer to my question, but I am still ending up confused. I finally got around to taking the front fork assembly apart last night and found that one of the fork tubes is bent, so I'll need to replace it ...
  13. Wanted Parts and Bikes
    Hello All, I am looking for an undented left side header pipe for a CB500T. I don;t care if it has a little rust (not rusted through obviously), because I plan on powder coating it. Does anyone have one they would be willing to sell by chance? Thanks much Bill
  14. Engine Discussion
    Gurus ... I am about to reassemble my engine and was doing a little research on the cam chain a couple days ago, when I cam across this comment in an old thread ... "Also make sure you are using the correct cam chain. The EK 219H chain will not fit right. You need to use the DID 219T chain."...

    Hello Gang, Can any comment on whether the stators are interchangeable between the CB500T and CB450? Thanks Bill
  19. Electrical Discussion
    Hey Gurus, I am starting to think about custom wiring my CB500T build, however, I have never done it before and I am wondering how big of a sh*tshow I would be getting myself into if I try it ... as part of this "ambition" I am also thinking about running the wire inside the frame (you know ...
