  1. CB360T will not fire, any ideas?

    Engine Discussion
    With Covid closing everything down this summer, I decided to pull out my dad's CB360T that had been sitting in the barn for nearly 40 years. Externally, it wasn't too bad with rust in some places, but no holes. The engine appears to be in great shape internally, and also has plenty of...
  2. CM400T Starts Runs then Dont

    Electrical Discussion
    I started the CM400 after two weeks of it sitting. It's been modded, but has ran fine till recently. Of course I'm feeling more comfortable with the mods and pushing the bike harder... This is the second time after about 30 min rides this has happened. Coming to a cold stop, at a light or...

  6. Difficult starting after 2+ days of sitting

    Engine Discussion
    I ride my '78 CB400 to and from work everyday, and every day it starts up like a champ on the first try. However, if I leave the bike for 2 or more days without starting it, it takes a lot more work to get it started. I can press and hold the the starter for 5-10 seconds with full choke before...
