    I have a new-to-me 1971 cl175 that is missing the headlight lens. Searching online parts sites I see the headlight for my cl175 is part number 33120-307-671 and is not available anywhere besides cmsnl for $$$. The same year cb175 uses headlight part number 33120-292-673 and is widely available...

    Hi guys, recently purchased a 1979 CM400t. Earlier I was trying to install rear turn signals but when I was fiddling with the wiring, I noticed when I would bump the wires that connect the tail light to the rest of the wiring the tail light would go out. The previous owner wrapped the wires with...

    Hi folks. I took a ride in the dark the other night on my Hawk II and quickly realized just how much better a modern lighting system is compared to a 42 year old sealed beam. I was thinking about ways to improve it, I would like to find a way to fit an LED lamp, I was thinking I would use a kit...

    I am replacing the switch with an aftermarket switch. The current switch has 8 wires. There is a Blue, White, Brown, Yellow, White/Yellow, Black/White, and 2 black wires. Here is what I know... The Blue wire is the high beam and the White wire is the low beam to the headlight. The Brown is...

    New to the forum, and also new to motorcycles! (3 months riding) The bulb in my headlight has burnt out. I am not used to dealing with sealed beam headlights. I have been looking online and am having a hell of a time finding a replacement. I am open to replacing it with a newer halogen bulb...

    My 76' CB360t is unresponsive despite a full battery charge and new fuses. I'd had issues for a while due to an improper headlight (H4 55/65W) but just replaced it with a new H4 35/35W. In tracking down that power draw I'd replaced the rectifier/regulator with the Sparck "12V Single Phase...

    Recently got my CB450 back from the mechanic, and he mentioned that the tail light wiring was wacky. I discovered the taillight and the low beam headlight don’t work (However the brake light, turn signals and high beam DO work) I’ve attached a photo to see if anyone can spot something obvious...

    I converted my CM185 over to 12v except the headlight. Anyone know of an after market one that fits?

    I've been looking through the forums for a while now but decided to join to ask some questions. Long story short, i dropped my bike avoiding a car and banged it up pretty well. I broke the right turn signal, bent the front fender and the rear brake pedal, and need a new headlamp and bucket. I've...

    Bought a new HALO headlight and LED turn signals for my '76 CB360t. After installing them, the LED's would come on but wouldn't flash. Installed an LED flasher and now they'll flash. The only problem is that they only work when the headlight is turned off. Not sure if it's an issue of power...

    Installed a new headlight from superbrightleds on my wife's 80 CB400T today. Fit right in after I squished the wiring around some, and plugged directly in. No adhesives, no fabricating anything, just plug it in and squeeeeeeze it in there. I haven't wired the "DRL" bars on the top and bottom...

    Hi All, It's been a while since I contributed to the forum, and I'm definitely sad about it. I started out with my '70 CB350 rebuild, made a video and everything. I carted the disassembled darling a few hours north to my brother's well equipped garage with the intention of having more resources...

    The headlight on my cm450e went out the other day. I took the replaced the bulb and still have no light, it seems that the headlight receptacle has a burnt area, and has melted some plastic, could this be the cause of the problem? if anybody has any knowledge about this I'd really appreciate it...

    Just a couple questions-- everything is stock on this bike. I'm looking into getting this headlight: Black Twin Headlight Motorcycle Double Dual Lamp Street Fighter Naked Dominator | eBay My question is will the stator be able to handle almost twice the bulb wattage? Thanks in advance.

    So the stock headlight bucket on my cm400A is cracked (as plastic tends to do), and I'd like to replace it. There's nothing wrong with the bulb, the chrome trim piece or any of the wiring. Problem is, getting another stock headlight case/bucket is a lot of money right now. I can buy the whole...

    Hello HT forum! I had posted a while back with some engine issues, but with those now solved, I'm moving on to other issues with the bike. Riding at night has always been a hand-clenching experience on some of the darker back roads as my old sealed beam just doesn't have the reach. I know the...

    Does anyone have or know where to get the copper contact slider for the headlight switch? It goes on the contact board and goes in the little plastic piece that connects the actual slider switch. It looks like this. Any help would be greatly appreciated! https://flic.kr/p/qFTrbS

    Hi guys Going ahead with the conversion to 12 v of my 1977 cd175 and I have sourced a 35/35w H4 headlight bulb which is similar in draw to the stock 25/25w item and my question is this. Is there an aftermarket or even honda headlight backing to take the H4 bulb or will I have to butcher a car...
