    Hello, Still working on my 68 cd175. My wife says she's glad I have a hobby. I just wish I could make it run. So... I see the points sparking, I've got the timing right on.

    Engine Discussion
    I have a 1971 Honda CL175 that I have been working on the past couple months. I've gotten to a point where I'm stumped and I need help. After the bike warms up on a ride it seems to drop to one cylinder or lose power. I can stop for a little while and start again and its fine. This led to...
