I was the surprise recipient of a 1971 CL175 K6 left to me by a cousin in his will. I have been reading this forum every day for the last couple weeks in an effort to learn about this bike and to resolve issues to see if I can get it to run. There are 13.7k miles on the odometer, which is about 750 miles more then when my cousin bought it 3 years ago. With that info I surmise it was running in the not so distant past. I have been making some progress - from immediately blowing a fuse when flipping the switch that either my cousin or the previous owner had installed under the seat, to now having a proper keyed ignition switch with all the electrical apparently working. The short was being caused by a black wire running to the right handlebar switches. The insulation had been rubbed bare where it exits the hole in the handlebar. I am de-rusting the tank and have thoroughly cleaned the carbs and hope to try starting it in the next few days. This forum has been truly invaluable so far and I have learned a ton. I am very appreciative of all who share their wisdom with complete strangers - THANKS!
