  1. Electrical Discussion
    I've recently been looking into upgrading my headlight from the old dim as hell halogens. Maybe shoving a 4" pod led from amazon into the original bucket/lens assembly? I know leds are generally more power-efficient in comparison to halogens, but could there be any power concerns if I ran a...
  2. Wanted Parts and Bikes
    Hello! I am on the prowl for a luggage rack for my CL360. Would love to find a stock one, but would take one that fits without modification. Any leads or possibilities are most appreciated!

    hello New member. I have already learned so much from reading all your posts. I am excited to work on my 74 Honda cl360. So far I have had my tank done and worked on making an old police helmet into a retro one. Next step is to replace and refit headlight and make my seat more comfy.
  4. Engine Discussion
    Hey everyone, Just got into my Crankcase on my CL360 to find that the kickstarter spring busted off a chunk of the lower case. I have a donor CB engine, but would like to use as much of the original CL360 engine as possible. Is it an option to just replace the lower case from the donor? Or is...
  5. Engine Discussion
    Hi all! I was wondering if anyone could give me a general idea how hot the ignition points area gets and/or the points cover for a 1974 CL360? I've only had my bike running during cold season, and at that I can't ride it for very long so I have no idea about max temps that can occur there...

    Hi everyone! I finally got around to making an account on this awesome forum. I'm a college kid with a love for wrenching and learning and without a doubt I will learn a lot on here! My current bike is a 1974 (or 75) CL360. I've replaced a ton on it so far to finally get it into working order...

    Hi everyone, Ferg here ( CL360 crashed barn find resto ) I am nearly there with this restoration. A few problems yet to solve - recently discovered the Keihin 745b carbs I have are fitted with two different diaphragm springs. Not sure if either is correct but they are of different lengths and...

    Hello everyone, this is my first post here, although I've been reading post from other members for awhile now. I recently tried to ride my 1975 CL 360 from my home in the Midwest to Portland, only to blow a piston about 700 miles into the journey. I had rebuilt almost everything on the bike...

    Hello everyone! My name is Liam, and I'm currently living in Portland and working on a 1975 CL360. I got the bike maybe 5 years ago, and have been doing a rebuild since then, with the vast majority of the progress taking place in the last two years. I had the bike stripped down to the frame...
  10. Project Logs
    Hi, this is my first project here and first motorcycle project in general. Usually work on dirt bikes. Really loving working on the old bike though. Picked up this 1975 Cl360 with around 8k miles. Overall not in bad condition just a lot of surface rust. Wasn’t running so I got it for $600 bucks...

    I got my first Honda Twin (and my first motorcycle) in 1993 for $300 -- a 1975 CL360. It ran, but with low power. My buddy who had a CB350 said "it's probably the carbs". It turned out to be that the compression was shot on the left cylinder. I ended up rebuilding the engine on the porch of my...

    Finally got what I think is the general tune up wrapped up, however, being my first time around, I haven't got a clue as to IF it all sounds like it's right... which is likely a lot of new kids. This is a '75 CL360 I picked up in January, from a close buddy who purchased it from a fella in...
  13. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I have tried everything to fix my CL360’s racing idle (or is it hanging idle?). In any case, lots of reading on old threads here led me to the hypothesis that my felt throttle shaft washers are either dried out or ruined from a soak in carb cleaner. How do I remove the throttle shafts to assess...
  14. Electrical Discussion
    I’m trying to remedy my CL360’s racing idle. One consideration is whether my points advancer (spark advancer) is worn out or malfunctioning. What should I be looking for when I inspect? When I pulled off the points plate, it appeared dry with a tiny bit of surface rust. Does it need some kind of...

    I've recently picked up a '75 CL360 barn find that was cleaned up (but not necessarily restored). Bought by a buddy and shipped east, though his lack of time and shifts of priorities turned out to be a score for me. Live in Brooklyn, but have a garage/ family home about an hour north of the...
  16. Engine Discussion
    Hi all. I have a ‘75 CL360 and the tachometer isn’t working. When I turn it on it shows about 1,000 rpm but no matter how the engine is revved (stationary in neutral or on the road), the gauge doesn’t move. I don’t really understand how the system works to connect engine to gauge, so I figured...
  17. Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Are these actually off of a CL360 as advertised? I can't find any info or images of a 2 into 1 muffler like this, and I'm hesitant to spend this kind of money if I can't confirm fit. Thanks...
  18. Project Logs
    After decades of riding bicycles I got the throttle fever last winter. Started with a KTM two-stroke that I’ve been having fun riding off-road. A friend of mine put a bug in my ear with his old CB restoration projects. And before I knew it, I ended up with this 1975 CL360. Engine seems to be in...

    On the tail end of my first build, (1974 CL360), I've used these threads with many issues I've had and wanted to say thanks for the contributors and the help. Here are the pics of the bike, it's a fluid ending so things may change and there are several minor issues that I still need to iron out...
