  1. 1982 cb450 ignition switch

    Electrical Discussion
    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. The key needs to be held in just the right way to get it running. I figured the best and fastest way to deal with it would be just...
  2. 1975 CB125S Point's Issue??

    Electrical Discussion
    Alright, so here's my issue, I've been restoring my dad's CB125 that he's passing to me. It's a 1975. I've replaced basically the whole ignition system and I'm still not getting spark.

  7. CL77 Right cyl misfire unless battery fully charged OR battery charger connected

    Engine Discussion
    My son and I just purchased a CL77 as a project bike. Won't be a show bike but we'll make it a nice presentable rider. It is a project. When we purchased it the only way we could get it to idle smoothly or run smoothly was to have the seller keep the battery charger connected. When we'd run...
