    Two years ago my friend and I rebuilt my 70’ CB450 engine with the bottom end of 68’ CL450. It was riding pretty well for about a year (for the exception of some power loss). But about a year ago I went for a ride and while riding in 5th on the highway, the whole bike jerked like the clutch...

    Greetings Fellow Riders! Just to tell you a little bit about myself. I've owned the same 70' CB450 for 12 years. My best friend from high school is an engineer who has helped with me with every problem my bike has run in to. He's been fixing engines since he was 15 and he immediately got me...

    Hi Guys, I wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I live in Brooklyn, but I'm from Milwaukee, where I visit a lot. I have some old bikes there also. I've recently bought a cb450k2 1969 that runs nice, but the clutch is grabbing at the end. I ordered a new clutch plate and spring kit, so I'm...

    As I said in the new members area a few weeks ago, I'm the proud owner of a 1974 CL450 Scrambler and for the past two months I've worked hard to get her trip ready. It was an ambitious goal, considering the bike set up for 40 years, but she was stashed away in the corner of a fairly decent...

    Just to be clear, I mean the six inch lower tailpipe that installs on the back of the lower muffler. I found a NOS tailpipe which the original parts list indicates is the right part for the bike. The covers for the tailpipe are correct for the year, so I have to assume that the mufflers they...

    Hi all, I am building a 69 CL450 K2 and the wiring on it is really rough. There are some after market harnesses on eBay for a CB450 K0. Could I modify it to fit my bike? Should I build my own? I'm new to motorcycles and the forum. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks! Ryan

    Hello all. I was an active member years ago... found my old intro here: http://www.hondatwins.net/forums/1-project-logs/412-intro-dallas-mild-cafe-cb360.html That bike actually ended up as this: We moved out to the east coast and bikes were put on hold for a few years. Now I have a 450...

    I have searched this topic on the forum and haven't found the cure, yet. So I am starting a new thread in hopes that one of you gurus can set me straight. I am working on a 1971 CL450, with approx. 13k miles, that has a very high idle. It will sometimes start and idle at a reasonable level, but...
