  1. Clutch spring torque

    Engine Discussion
    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
  2. Hello from Dallas

    Member Introductions
    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...

  5. Clutch dragging

    Engine Discussion
    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...

  8. Clutch will not disengage from Transmission - 1982 Honda CB 450 Nighthawk

    Engine Discussion
    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...

    Engine Discussion
    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...
  10. 5th gear slipping

    Engine Discussion
    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...
  11. Ever had your cb350 stuck in neutral and unable to get into gear?

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    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...
  12. Clutch Adjustment

    Engine Discussion
    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...
  13. CL350 Clutch Issue

    Engine Discussion
    Hey guys! So I followed every single step on different threads on adjusting the clutch and I was able to fix my popping issue, but I have a problem because the clutch doesn't ever disengage. I can put it into first and neutral without any lever engagement. I tested it by pulling in the clutch...

    Hey guys have a '73 CB350, just got the engine running perfect yesterday after I adjusted the intake valves.

    Engine Discussion
    I just buttoned up my CB360 engine rebuild and got the engine mounted back in the bike. I was meticulous with the rebuild.

    Mechanical Issues
    Hello, Great forum, always really helpful. The wiring diagrams and parts manuals have been invaluable. I have the dynamo exposed now, and before I get behind it I would really like to see the shop manual and will need all the torque specs. I've looked all over but no luck downloading anything...
