    I recently changed the battery on my newly acquired 1975 cb500t and I noticed smoke coming from an electrical connector.

    I just bought an old 1982 450 nighthawk. It was in great condition for its age and runs but I have an issue with the ignition that makes it pretty much unridable.

  8. Project Logs
    So I picked up a 1980 CM400T for very very cheap. I plan to get it running right and bob it. After cleaning the plugs I was luck enough to get it compression started, though as expected, it ran poorly. I plan to clean and re-tune the carbs tonight, but there are a couple of problems I'm not sure...
