    New member; first time post! OK, so I have a 1971 CB450 that hasn’t run in 35 years (hey, it was garaged, it’s clean and cost me zilch)! Told that motor is “stuck”. Upon disassembling to remove motor from frame, I come across this yellow, plasti-coated spring piece jammed between the output...

    Engine Discussion

    Hello. So I bought a 1970 CB350. After taking it out on the road a couple of times I noticed that sometimes the bike will shift perfect but then other times it won't get past second gear. When it gets stuck in second gear if I downshift and then shift back up occasionally it will get past...

    Engine Discussion
    Hi! I have a 76 cb360 that starts fine and rides great, but recently I've noticed a problem about a mile or so into each ride and it isn't so great. When I disengage the clutch to switch gears, the rpms go way up yet the bike severely slows down, until I reengage, at which point everything...
