  6. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    First, I have a 1970 SL350 with 722A carbs I've had issues with my right cylinder firing intermittently, and judging by the spark plug, is running very rich. So today I pulled my 722A carb apart and cleaned out every hole. The carb was rebuilt before the bike was running at all: Diaphragm is...

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...

    The gas tank on my '82 cb750 Nighthawk is leaking. I think the leak is coming from the fuel gauge sender unit gasket under the tank. I replace the o-ring gasket but, of course, when tightening the nuts back up, I snapped one of the posts off the tank. The gasket does appear to have helped but...

    Not sure if this is more miscellaneous than fuel supply related, but oh well here goes. I'm beginning a 1976 CB360 cafe project, and so, while I chip away at the body work/cutting sanding and painting the frame, I'm wanting to track down the odds and ends I still require. My (greenhorn)...

    Hey all, Pretty new in this realm. Have a 72 CB 350. Running great. Threw some 93 in it and she got...quieter. Not in a bad way - but more of a "Wow. 93 made her run smooth and shut up" kind of way. 93 too high? Thanks, Doug
