    The headlight, front blinkers, and rear lights all work but only when I jump the fuses. Is this a problem with the ignition switch? the ignition switch works when stopping the engine from running??? so close to finishing

    Hi, I just picked up a non-running CL175K6, got it running but now I'm looking into some electrical issue. In the second key position the tail light will come on like it's supposed to, but when running normally none of the lights work at all. My first thought is the old rectifier needs to be...

    Hello All, I don't know what to do. I bought a 1978 Twinstar at the end of summer here and when I bought it I knew that the signals didn't work. I was dumb, and didn't check the brake light, which also didn't work. So after some time spent on the bike here's where I'm at with it: - Turn...
  4. Non-Parallel Honda Twins
    So near my high school there is a small auto shop and the owner has a 1978 cb750F super sport he offered to sell me for $200 and its got just about everything but the gas tank, seat and body pieces. If I recall correctly there was only 2 years the bike was made so its kinda tough to come across...

    I'm currently working on a 1976 CB500T. I replaced the brake piston yesterday because the other one had some pitting, and took the bike out for a little cruise to see how it rode with the brake now fixed. The bike was running great and everything was fine, until I noticed a severe loss of power...

    hi y'all. Trying to figure out why my signals only work intermittently- they will usually go on but don't blink (sometimes they do however, after i've been riding for a while at higher speeds). Someone suggested it is important to have the correct bulbs. Currently have 6 volt, 1129s. Anyone...

    Hi! I bought some used tail lights off ebay for a decent price and everything seems to be alright with them i just need a little help installing the wires. The lights I ordered were taken from a 1980 cm400T and my motorcycle is a 1980 cm400E so I figured they'd be compatible. My problem is...

    Hi all, Motorcycle is a North American 1982 CB450SC. 1. Tach is not illuminated. I'm assuming the bulb is burned out. Anything to watch out for when I get around to changing the bulb? 2. The front left (as I'm sitting on the MC) yellow light does not initially light up like a parking light...
  10. Project Logs
    So I picked up a 1980 CM400T for very very cheap. I plan to get it running right and bob it. After cleaning the plugs I was luck enough to get it compression started, though as expected, it ran poorly. I plan to clean and re-tune the carbs tonight, but there are a couple of problems I'm not sure...
  11. Electrical Discussion
    I have been cleaning and working on making my 1978 CB400T into a cafe bike. Nothing to dramatic, lower the handle bars, pod filters (done), and...MOVING THE TAIL LIGHT. It sits up on a tall, ugly, black plastic post. Any ideas on lowering and moving it back towards the seat. Cheap is always...
