  1. Motorcycle Repair
    Got the bike about 3-4 weeks ago, test rode it, ran fine the first day I had it. Tried to start it again the next day and it wouldn't start. Didn't have time to tinker with it until a few days ago. Would not start no matter what for awhile but it was sounding like it would. Found out it was...

    First post and happy to help when I can. I've ran across many issues as you ass have as a motorcycle owner but this one has me very puzzled.

    anyone know if an 83 cb650 gas tank is the same as the 82, i know they changed a lot of things on the 83, not sure if that includes the gas tank, are they about the same or completely different. I'm rebuilding an 82 cb650 nighthawk and want to try to keep it as original as possible, so also is...

    I bought a 1982 CB650 a week an half ago as the guy selling it couldn't get it running and he didnt know anything about engines. He also didnt want to even try with it. Said he had a new battery, but it must have froze over last winter in MN and it was bad. Replaced the battery. The guy also...

  7. Building, Restoration & Modification
    After completing restoration of a '73 CB450, I set sites on something a little bigger with some artistic bent to it. A fan of the older British Style bike, BSA.Vincent, Norton etc. decided on my own design spin. My partner has got the mechanical skills, I am the concept/restoration side of it...
  8. Motorcycle Repair
    I have a 1980 CB650 and I'm having a little issue. I have experienced that while cruising at top gear for some time the bike will stall out as if it is running low on fuel despite a full tank, my guess is that this is due to the carbs needing to be cleaned or some sort of contaminant in a fuel...

    I just bought a Honda 650 from my father-in-law for $50. Thats what he paid to a repo place. I will start to fix it here soon having that itch to ride. I need a new ignition switch and gas cap seeing how there were no keys to it. Would like to know if there are any good sites out there where i...

    Hey everyone, I purchased this bike about a month and a half ago and finally got it running after tearing the carbs apart twice. During my second teardown, I noticed that there were no springs, and only one washer (out of 4) for the pilot jets on all 4 carburetors. I tuned the pilots the best I...

    I just bought this bike in Jan, didn't run, I've got it running real good now, after having Carbs rebuilt. Plus I put new smaller turn signals on. I got a question about checking the oil. The dip stick is different than the type of dipstick on my car. Can anyone tell me how to know I have enough...

    I've recently gotten involved with what is quickly becoming a very loud '79 CB650. Just below the right peg the exhaust has rusted/corroded all the way through. Any chance someone's got replacement parts for the entire exhaust assembly before I get stuck with MAC 4-into-1 turnouts? It'd be...
