  1. Electrical Issues
    Hey folks! Ive got a 1971 SL350K1 That Ive done a decent amount of work to. One of the upgrades was a LiPo battery and a Trailtech reg/rec. In keeping with Murphy's law, the stator stopped working and the battery dropped down to 7.33v before I caught on. I doubt it can be resuscitated without...
  2. Mechanical Issues
    Hello, I have a 1972 sl350 that I’ve been restoring to running condition. It runs and starts first kick, but there is still a lot of work to do. One of which, being that when I opened up the stator cover to set the timing, oil drained out. Not just a little bit, but the entire oil resovoir (or...

    I had been running stock 16/42 sprockets on my SL350-K1. It runs about 6K at near 60mph. Swapped from a 16 tooth front sprocket to a 14 over the weekend and tested it yesterday. Never hit 50 mph at 6K and didn't want to push it more. BEst news was the stock chain did not have to have links...

    Hey all, just picked up a 1972 SL350 this past weekend. It's in good condition and runs strong, other than the issue I've been having. It will start first or second kick without issue. I've gotten it through all the gears, and when its riding, it rides well. The only issue I'm having is that it...

    I just acquired a luggage rack off ebay for my sl350 k2. It is a Triple A brand. It has front mounting points to the shocks and a frame attachment bar, however the rack did not come with any brackets for the frame mount. If anyone is familiar with this rack did it originally have frame...

    Need some advice on this one. Ordered two new front sprockets from Sprocket Specialists online for my sl350 k2, a 16 tooth and a 17 tooth. The bike was listed in the catalog and I thought it would be a direct replacement. However when the sprockets arrived they did not have the bolt holes in...
  11. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hello Ladies and Gents. I haven't been around the forum for some time since selling "Herbie" the 1980 CM200 a while back to a friend. I've since had an SL350 land on my lap and I'm working on getting it running and could really use some help. Here's the scoop. I drained the gas tank and...

    Hey everyone, first time posting. I have started a rebuild on a SL350K1 and have a question about the camshaft and rockers. I've searched around the forum and haven't found and specs on them. The repair manual I have doesn't address them either. I do know that Delta camshaft can do a...

    Currently working on an 70' SL350_k0 with the 2 bolt axle pinch system under each fork tube. (33mm set up, possibly same as CL/CB of those years?) There is a thinner side and thicker side to the axle cap. My manuals are vague :o When the cap is squeezing the front wheel/axle, does the...

  15. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I am presently rebuilding my keihin 24 carbs on my sl350 k2. In pulling them apart I find two different size throttle springs one of which is half the width of the other. I am sure the bigger one is the right one but have not been able to find any place that sells replacement springs. Just...
  16. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    I am in the process of ordering new spokes and nipples from Buchanan's and was wondering if anyone has the measurements for the spokes on the rear wheels of the 71-72 SL350's. I'm afraid my old spokes were pretty rusty and I tossed them before I realized they would have to be measured for...
  17. Vendor Links
    While doing some random parts searching for my sl350 I came across this company in Australia. They make new repro parts for many vintage motorcycles including exhausts for the k1 and k2 sl350's. Price is $970 a pair and was quoted $100 for shipping to Michigan with a 3-4 month wait time. The...

    I know this has been discussed numerous times but I am hoping for some additional guidance. My kick start idler gear definitely has some play in it but in all my searching I have not found any information on how much play is too much. When originally designed how much play was acceptable and...

    In getting my cam case ready for re-assembly on my sl350 k2 I noticed something that I am not sure is normal or not. The holes that the rocker pins go into in the cam case have small openings in the sides of them...
