    Hi guys, I moved up to a 1969 Honda CB350 after fixing up a CB200. When I first got the bike it wouldn't idle, shift, and the carbs would overflow with fuel. So far I've rebuilt the carbs, tensioned the cam chain, set the valve clearance, along with the ignition timing. After the maintenance...

    I'm looking to replace the ~20year friction plates in the '72 CL175 K6 and I bought 5 Friction plates from Barnett. to replace the 5 Honda Friction plates I had. THe Barnett plates have a smaller Inner diameter which I think is good becuase that = more surface area in contact with the steel...

    I was "gifted" a '72 CL175 K6 by a friend and I'm just going through it to check out the condition. It has sat for a long time(10+ years). I opened up the clutch basket to find 4 plates + 1 Plate "B" and 5 friction plates. As far as I know that is normal. But the springs are way too short per...

    Here's an update on the bike since joining the forum and posting my member introduction. I'd say I'm a little over half way through the new bike checklist (Basic Checklist for that New to You old Bike), and thank goodness for all the things it tells you to check. I freed up the frozen clutch...

    Hey guys. Right now I'm working on a 1982 nighthawk 450 project. I had a seized engine, so I bought and am in the process of installing a new one. An issue I have is that the lever on the right side panel attached to the clutch cable is stuck. Off of the engine the lever on the panel (I'm...

    Hi there, I apologize if this is not the correct place to start that discussion. I have now put back the clutch plates and the lock nut on my ‘85 CB450SC. How tight should the 4 springs be? Also how do you adjust the clutch? many thanks Ed

    Hello, New (to me) owner of a '73 CB350G. After riding the bike for about two weeks I decided it was time to begin tearing down and rebuilding everything, as it seems that general maintenance went by the wayside over the last 46 years. Hoping to learn a lot along the way! Shameless plug that...

    Hello, I recently purchased a 1973 CB350G. While combing through the bike I discovered the ball retainer in the clutch lever/lifter assembly within the left crank case is missing, part # 22860-286-000. Does anyone have one for sale or know where I might find one? I've searched all over ebay...

    I am having trouble with my CL350 clutch dragging, it's enough to slow the engine down and make shifting difficult on the center stand. I popped the clutch several days ago with an improper adjustment, since then I have done the following: Cleaned and regreased the lifter assembly, rebuilt the...

    The bike ran fine, better than ever, I was just fine tuning and was told clutch lever shouldn't be 90 degrees off motor should be about 120 or so back from front, so i changed it as described in manual. See attached image. The bike was in neutral when I changed the lever, spring and push rod...

    I recently bought this bike, it was being converted into a cafe racer style, but previous owner stopped halfway through, so bike has been sitting for maybe 1-2 years. The first thing I noticed is that Clutch will not disengage from the transmission - I have the bike up on the center stand so...

    Sorry if it has been posted somewhere, but just want to share this, the idea came from my bestfriend, and since it is doable and theoritically correct (learnt this physic/pulley/reduce force when in school), so we believed that will work, in fact it works super nice. No hurt feeling when in...

    Hey all. I have a 1972 CB350. Just recently the transmission has started slipping while I'm driving in 5th gear. It acts as if the clutch were being pulled in and released periodically despite not actuating the clutch. I have adjusted the clutch tension to where I feel confident that when the...

    Hi all! I found a real gem of a 1972 cb350 and have been performing a few basic new old bike fixes. The bike had been lightly ridden its entire life and well taken care of - although had sat for a bit over the past couple years. While change the two oil seals on the left side (the pushrod and...

    I just finished a motorcycle riding course since I'm pretty new to riding and it gives my my license and reduces insurance. We all rode their bikes which were mostly Rebel 250's, super light easy bikes. The first thing I noticed was how much bigger the clutch friction point was on those bikes...
