  1. Engine Discussion
    I'll start by saying that i have new coils, PAMCO ignition, brand new battery, plugs are several months old, and rebuilt the carbs. Okay, now to the issue. So i was riding one day and all of a sudden i get a loss of power because it started running on one cylinder. i thought it was the carbs at...
  2. Electrical Discussion
    Hello, so i was having sparking issues on the left side and noticed the leads were fried so i replaced both coils with new caps and spark plugs. The weird thing is that after i installed them they were both giving spark and that was awesome, but when I went back the next day to go for a ride, I...

    I've got a CL175 K4. Some background: when I bought it, it had a stripped spark plug hole. I tapped it to a larger diameter, put a timesert in and checked the compression; it was good, not perfect, but it made it to 120psi which I've read is plenty good nuff to work. I did all this with the...

When the whole thing is back together I can only get one cylinder to burn, the left side pipe is dead cold. I switched the...
  6. Miscellaneous Discussion
    So I have a 1970 CB350 K2, and I recently rebuilt the carbs and replaced the plugs and plug wires. However I was driving the other day and it all of a sudden died out on one cylinder so I checked the plugs and they were fine, any advice on what this could be? I am thinking possibly a coil or...
  7. Electrical Discussion
    Hey all, I've been riding all month, and have had no big problems, aside from a few oil leaks from under-tightened bolts, until today. Last night, as I put my bike in my garage, I plugged in a battery tender (still haven't done the regulator/rectifier upgrade), but accidentally left the kill...
