  1. '75 CB200T Restoration - Lady Wrencher

    Project Logs
    Working on a Candy Gold Metallic '75 CB200T as my first bike to restore. Kind of debated on whether to specify the "lady wrencher" part but if it inspires more women to tinkering around with mechanics, then I'm all for it. I'll be asking stupid questions and for sage advice throughout the...
  2. '78 CB400T II - Questions and guidance on dropping engine to replace bottom crankcase

    Engine Discussion
    Hey all. Before I've posted about my bike and it's oil leak. PO over tightened the oil drain bolt, and this resulted in a crack along the threads. He/She did a ****ty JB Weld job on it, and it's leaking. The leak has gotten worse over time. I decided that I want to fix this problem once and for...
  3. Misused the kickstarter, now lower crankcase damaged

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    Hello, I'm pretty new to the forum (and motorcycles, for that matter), and this site has been extremely helpful to me so far, so thanks! I recently got a '72 CB350K4 that runs but needs several smaller things. Overall it seems to be in good shape. I ran into a problem early on, though. I had...
  4. CB200 crankcase breather tube route

    Engine Discussion
    Hi, I knew the CB200’s crankcase breather tube was too short because it ends level with the bottom of the carburettors about 5cm behind the carburettors. In that position, it spatters oil over the back of the engine, frame behind the engine, etc... The original Honda tube is unattainable, but...
  5. Splitting Crankcase - '75 CL360

    Engine Discussion
    Hey All! First time posting on here. Howdy. So I've been working on a 75 CL360, tore it down to the frame, tore down the top end of the motor to take to a machine shop.. Had the fun experience of dropping one of the ring clips that secures the pistons down in to the crankcase. Cannot get it...
  6. Oil Leak from Left Crankcase Cover

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    A few months ago I got my first motorcycle, a 1980 CM200T. It ran fine for a little while, then one morning when I got it running, it started leaking oil, fairly heavily, from the left crankcase cover. I figured the gasket blew and all I needed to do was replace it, but after doing that it was...
  7. Removing Crank Case Cover and central nut is spinning with screw.

    Engine Discussion
    Alrighty so, I am not 100 percent sure that how I referred to these pieces was correct, but here are some pictures to clear things up for everyone. That nut in the middle, from my view, is the last thing keeping on the cover, and when I try to turn it, the screw it is holding onto slings with...
  8. Dropped plastic camchain tensioner roller tab into crankcase...

    Engine Discussion
    Hello, I am in the process of installing a KA Performance cam chain tensioner on my bike and while I was removing the old roller assembly a series of unfortunate events led me to dropping one of the plastic tabs (item no. 11 in the attached image) into the crankcase... I rotated the crankshaft a...
