  1. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I just bought a 1982 CM450c one month ago. It was a barn find, only 5400 miles. The seller supposedly “cleaned” the carbs and used a rebuild kit. He got it running, though said carbs needed adjusting. I’ve got it starting easily now, but requires 2-3 min of choke and slight throttle. It then...
  2. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hello, I am reviving a 1971 CL175 that was not running and was COVERED with rust when I got it. It had been left out, uncovered, on the coast for 3 years. Once I resolved some of the electrical issues that were preventing it from starting, I was able to get it running. This gave me confidence to...
  3. Project Logs
    Here's an update on the bike since joining the forum and posting my member introduction. I'd say I'm a little over half way through the new bike checklist (Basic Checklist for that New to You old Bike), and thank goodness for all the things it tells you to check. I freed up the frozen clutch...
  4. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hi all! I have a CB450 Black Bomber I am working on. When I removed the fuel line from the carburetors, the little nub (don't know technical term) that connects the fule line for both carburetors stayed in the fuel line. I would have thought this would have been a permanent part of the...
  5. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Has anyone had issues with their stock 71 cl350 choke turning on(lever up) while riding? I guess its not a huge deal, but it is irritating losing power every 3 minutes because the vibration just moves the lever up on its own and i have to bring it back down every time while i ride. Is there any...

    What do you guys think about this plug? They both look exactly the same, but I'm not completely sure if this means I'm running lean or rich. Thanks for any help.
  7. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hey guys, so I'm new to the bike scene (please help) I recently bought a CB450 as a project bike and I've hit my first hiccup...I removed the fuel lines and petcock to replace the lines, and I have no idea how the lines go, meaning which line goes to which port. I know, this is probably one of...

    Hey everyone, So I'm a VERY new rider with a '72 CB450 and it recently went down on its left side. It was in 1st when it went down and it didn't fall hard because I was holding the handle bars as it went down and i wasn't actually moving all that much. When I got it back up, there seemed to be...

    Hi All, My fuel tank has a quite a few dings. Does anyone by chance have a spare one laying around? Mine is functional but for the right price I'd like to put one in better condition on the bike. Thanks!
  10. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    New here, bought a 1979 Honda CM400T in April. It ran, although a little rough. I've done a few things to get it running better so far. I bought Amsoil Powerfoam to spray through the carbs to clean them out. You are supposed to run the bike while spraying and then let it sit for 15 mins. While...
  11. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I had one of the mufflers blow out on on my 71 cl350 and I've been looking for a good resource on how different types of exhaust and air filters will affect the performance of your bike. I'm currently running velocity stacks installed by the PO but I'd like to switch back to stock or pods and...
  12. Engine Discussion
    I have searched this topic on the forum and haven't found the cure, yet. So I am starting a new thread in hopes that one of you gurus can set me straight. I am working on a 1971 CL450, with approx. 13k miles, that has a very high idle. It will sometimes start and idle at a reasonable level, but...
  13. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hey guys, First some background. I bought my 1974 CB200 in August 2014 with 35k kms and no spark. I bought the bike to learn more about motorcycle mechanics and do some wrenching. It's been a journey, but even after many frustrations it's still hella fun to work on. The intention is to do...
  14. Miscellaneous Discussion
    Has anyone experimented with several fuel tanks on the cb350? other brands as well. I am getting prepared to start a cafe build on my '73 cb350, and am currently leaning towards a Suzuki GS750 tank, but i would like to see photos of other builds that have swapped tanks. I want something bigger...

    Alright fellas, I got this fuel tank as an extra part with my 76' cb360t because it was the better tank. But it is to big and the underneath to narrow to go over the frame with all the solenoids and electrical ect. Anyway, now i need to sell this tank that is in good condition but am having...

    Hi Everyone, I am new to this world and I have a '73 cb350 basement find that a friend of mine recently got running. The bike has been great with the exception of 2 similar incidents, the first which seemed to have a straight forward answer, the second one is a bit more perplexing. About 100...
  19. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hi y'all, I am a new rider and I'm learning a lot about my 1978 Honda Hawk cb400TII. I just installed a new petcock, the old one was leaking badly. However, now I have a situation where the fuel isn't flowing fast enough - it drips through the fuel hose. I'd like to see a steady flow of fuel...

    I have scoured the internet (yes ebay especially) looking for a tank for my 1996 rebel. I am specific, I do not want a different color or combo. May not find it, that is fine, but mine has two dents. One minor, one major, from previous owner's kid who dropped it in the drive hard. If anyone...
