  1. Arrgghh Starting Clicking Noise no Compression cb450?

    Engine Discussion
    So terrible day. It started as a great one; all I needed to do was to add oil, button up some wiring, add gas, and finally start up and go for a test ride. WRONG. While going through the normal motions of starting a bike that hasn't been started in several months, after a "restore to life" on...
  2. 1978 CM 185 Twinstar pulls the kickstarter down

    Engine Discussion
    Hey there, I´m having this issue with my 1978 CM185T. When i put it in first gear and start to go, it pulls down the kickstarter and leaves it down making a sort of ratchety noise.

  6. cb exhaust limited clearance with kickstarter bolt

    Engine Discussion
    My son and I are undergoing a 360 rebuild project. We acquired a cl360, but are putting a cb360 exhaust on it. What we have now encountered is a clearance problem with the junction of the exhaust header, pipe, and kicker starter. They converge at the exact same location. Everything is too...
