  2. CL350 Choke doesn't stay off while riding

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Has anyone had issues with their stock 71 cl350 choke turning on(lever up) while riding? I guess its not a huge deal, but it is irritating losing power every 3 minutes because the vibration just moves the lever up on its own and i have to bring it back down every time while i ride. Is there any...
  3. 1968 CL175 Carburetor relief valve missing

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    So I'm working on an old 68' CL175 and after taking off the carbs for some inspecting, I noticed that one of the carbs is missing the little flap on door of the choke valve. After digging through the shop manual I think I've figured out that it is the relief valve. It looks like there may have...
  4. Mikuni's - right hand carb choke placement

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    How do. It's been a while . . . I've finally fitted some Mikunis to the 450 that I've had sitting in a box for about four years. Fitting them was pretty straightforward - can't remember exactly where I got them from, but they came with intake manifold adapters. They needs dialing in - the...
  5. 1975 CB200T Carburetor Disassembly Help

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hi everyone, I tried to search around this forum a little but couldn't quite find what I was looking for. I'm not new to wrenching but I am new to motorcycles and I bought this CB200 about a month ago with a few issues. I'm starting to go through the fuel system. I'm in the middle of...
  6. 74 CB450 Carb Choke Plate Linkage Issue

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hey all, just joined this group. Recently bought my first bike, a 1974 CB450 K7. I'm going through it and doing some maintenance, been working on my own cars for awhile but honestly know nothing about motorcycles. Dunno if specific trouble shooting is welcome here but thought I'd give it a shot...
  7. First time running - a Few Issues

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I have a 1969 CB350 twin I bought a year ago. Finally got it running today after having the carburetors professionally rebuilt (without the bike being present) using rebuild kits I purchased from Common-Motor Works. I rode around the 1 mile loop in my neighborhood several times. But It has an...

    Hello, looks like a nice forum and community here. I come from the land of Ninja 250's, where all of my mates went up to their 600 Super sports, I took the route of an even slower bike haha, my new bike is a 1993 CB250 nighthawk that is pretty much cafe'd out. Love it so far, had it about a...

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    The choke cable on my 84' cm450e is stuck and can't be pulled open. with the weather getting colder, its been taking longer and longer to get her started without the choke, is there a good way to lubricate it to get it moving, or should i just replace it? thanks!
  10. CB200T choke problem, PLEASE HELP!

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hey guys, I have a '75 Cb200T and it's having some problems. I'm new to the forum so I apologize if anythings out of order. I can start the bike but it revs high right away and will stay and idle at around 4,000 rpms (I know that's a lot higher than it should be and I've tried looking for vacuum...
  11. CB360T Choke Issues

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hello All, I have a 75 cb360t and I am having issues with the clutch. I am able to start the bike with the choke off (kick start) but when I choke it to get it warmed up, the engine just dies. It seems like the choke is doing the opposite of what it's supposed to be doing. Thoughts?
  12. Reconnecting Throttle Cables and Choke for 1982 CB450T

    Engine Discussion
    OK, so I am sure this is supposed to be the easy part of reassembly based on how little coverage either of my shop manuals give to this issue, but .... can anyone send me a photo or two and describe where the 2 throttle cables connect to the carb and how the choke connects? It has been too long...
