starter clutch

  1. Miscellaneous Discussion
    1966 Honda cb450. It was starting well-electric-and then it started to develop electric starter problems. I opened up the case and found the starter clutch bolts loose. I pulled the rotor and two of the springs and one of the caps for the springs is gone. Where to? How can I get them. Are...

    Hello all, I am currently building my first bike, a 1972 Honda CL350, and I have ran into a problem that I have never seen before. I got the bike running great with the kick start but am having troubles with the starter. The starter will start the bike no problem, almost instantly, but it...

    Hey Guys, Got myself a bit stuck with by 1971 CB350. The electric starter isn't working. It just gives a whirring sound, so I figure the starter clutch isn't working and probably just needs some new springs. I go to dive in there and can't get the rotor off for the life of me. I don't have a...

    Hi everyone-- New member here with a 1974 CB200. Has only 4,700 miles, and purs like a kitten(when it's running). Sometimes when I would ride, once I would come to a stop the bike would shut off. Note: I've been only been able to ride with the choke on, so I think I just need to adjust my carb...

    Howdy, y'all. I've been wrenching for a little over a decade, mostly on Triumph triples but also on the occasional Kawasaki twin. I've just been handed a CB360 project for a friend, so first time with an old Honda twin. I thought I was in for a straightforward motor swap, but it turns out I'm...

    Hi, I'm hoping I could get some thoughts on the funky noises my bike makes when I go to start it (78 CB400 t2). In this video I use the push button starter and the kick start on an engine that had warmed up a bit. With the push button, the engine will turn over but abruptly stops trying...

    CB200 engine gurus...attention please. Removed rotor due to starter clutch not engaging and found plastic washer / seal debris in rollers and bronze metal contamination that looked to be from the starter sprocket bush, cleaned out - works fine. When I replaced the sprocket and rotor assembly I...
