Hey guys. Wanted to say hello. In my possession is a 1975 CL360. When i bought the bike i was told by the PO, whom said he was a Motorcycle mechanic, that the bike had no major issues. Rode it a few days to work and noticed that 5 minutes into the ride the bike experienced major loss of power. When i got to work that day I felt both headers and realized that one piston had stopped firing. Now I'm in the middle of tearing apart the top end in search of the problem. So just be ready to answer some questions!! :D Look forward to conversing more with everyone and seeing pictures of those beautiful bikes. See you in the threads.

Welcome to the forums.

I will assume before you ripped the top end of the engine off, you did a compression test, and did a quick carb cleaning and balancing?

Thank you.
And compression test yes. Left cylinder is getting 1/3 psi that it should... unfortunately
But i'm still going to be going through the carburetors before anything gets tore open anyways.
