got a 73 cl450 and got the wiring done all up now but when i hit the electric start i hear the starter wind up but nothing really happens, any ideas. i havent opened it up at all to check for the chain or belt being there or not being there, but i thought that you guys might be a little bit helpful before i do. what should i be looking for???

Sounds like a bad or "stuck" starter clutch....... I can go step by step, but a manual will help you too.... You will be draining some/the oil, and removing the main left front cover over the alternator....

Bill's fiche should be helpful.....

Sounds like you need Bills Annotated 450 CD-manual for servicing. It's cheap. I got one. Highly recommended. :D

it sounds like its spinning kinda like a drink mixer/ grinder but nothing seems to grab and start it up. i will have to wait till the next oil change on the bike to even think about messing with it.

You'll also be needing an alternator puller-bolt (a 16mm JIS metric) but an old 350 rear axle will work fine..... Explaination when you get there..... DO NOT use a "jawed" puller!!!
