  1. Black Bomber Crankshaft

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    Hi all, My bomber needs a new crankshaft, and it seems to be a huge pita to find! I posted on the looking for parts sub already, but I was wondering if anyone here might know where i could try to look for one, as ebay seems to be fairly thin right now. If only the later crankshaft could fit my...

    Hi all, I am in need of a 1966 cb450 k0 (black bomber) crankshaft assembly, which seems to be a pita to find:eek: only one I found so far was running $1,375 on ebay. A bit too much for me!

  3. Name That Sound - Bottom End Isuue on my 1965 CB160?

    Engine Discussion
    Well, this morning's ride yielded an interesting turn of events. While idling I discovered the attached sound that appears to be coming from the bottom end and makes a pulsing / cycling sound My first thought was something crank related but it remains relatively constant even at higher speeds...

If not, where could...

    CB200 engine gurus...attention please. Removed rotor due to starter clutch not engaging and found plastic washer / seal debris in rollers and bronze metal contamination that looked to be from the starter sprocket bush, cleaned out - works fine. When I replaced the sprocket and rotor assembly I...
  7. Cb200 Bigend replace?

    Engine Discussion
    Hi, I need advice. I got fed up with my Cb200 sounding like tin of nail was attatched to the wheel, so have taken the top off. All looks to be within spec except the left (port) bigend has maybe half a mm of up and down slack. Sideways checked ok with a feeler gauge is to the book. The book...
