Tonight I was going to install the CB350 pipes I got on my CL350. I installed the right side pipe with no problems... but my footpeg on the left seems to be in too close to let the header pass over it? Can someone post a picture of their left footpeg so I can see if mine is different? I have looked at the parts diagrams on CMSNL.com and they look as if the CB and CL should be the same. But You can see on this pic of my CL how much the left peg seems to sit in toward the bike.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Woody

After looking at the bike again and double checking. There is no way the pipe will go over the pegbar/mount. It almost goes under, but it hits the kickstand. It doesn't appear to have ever been welded or repaired... is there any chance it is from another bike? I have looked at a bunch of CB350 pics on flickr and the pipe definitely goes over the peg mount and the pegmount swings up where the peg is then mounted to it. My peg is almost exactly in line with the shifter spindle... in other words if you came out of the spline where the shifter mounts it is almost perfectly in line with the peg spindle. There is about 1/2" clearance between the shifter mount and the peg mount.

Yep those pics helped a bunch... There is no way my pipe will go over my peg bar. The shifter linkage is totally seperate and that's how it was on the earlier models. I think I'll get another pegbar and see if that does it for me. Anyone have one laying around after switching to rearsets?

yes CL and CB footpegs are different, I changed my 450 over and along with footpegs had to change brake lever,
from your pic, (rear view) looks like you may not have to, also hope you know those CB head pipes have R&L sides

Woody, Yes, you WILL need the CB peg bar....The CL ones are essentially straight bars set at an angle up
to the peg, (/), while the CB ones are essentially a "(U)" or "(J)" that loops under and around the pipes......
Both pegs are on one continuous bar/bracket...Steve

Woody...I think I have a stock CB linkage set-up including the rear sideplate
with the pivot post (that mounts the swingarm to frame rail and holds the buddy peg)....
Give me a couple days to hunt it up...... Steve

Thanks for the help guys. I am gonna get ahold of a cb bracket and see where that gets me. I think I'll be in good shape then.

Steve,
Thanks for the offer on the shifter linkage etc. I'm not sure I'm crazy about the linkage setup though. I was told that it gets sloppy and that is why Honda went to the simpler setup.

This 350 is so close to done (for now) I can taste it. I hope to finish up this round of changes in the next two weeks... Then look for new pics!

Woody, what size are the Avon Road Riders that you're using? I'm guessing 100/90 on front and rear.

Also, I've been looking into that same Lucas-style tail light for my CB350, but I've been trying to brainstorm some ideas for what to do with those lower exposed holes. Have you had any ideas on how to cover those up? Maybe (and I haven't looked into this at all) a rectangular Honda logo from the triple tree of an early '80s model?

A couple stainless button head allen bolts would look alright and take care of those unsightly holes..

Did a quick search on Ebay, and I think CX500 engine emblems would do the trick. Small, thin, etc. Or those bullet-shaped bolts with LEDs in them, for additional plate lighting.
