  1. Does anyone actually buy anything from CMSNL?

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    It's fantastic that they have every Fiche but shipping from the UK is just about the same price as my order.

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I got this 1972 Honda CB350 back in May as my first non-dirtbike bike, and as a way to teach myself more about the mechanics of a motorcycle.
