Thanks Oz. It is a good first bike. I think it needs some carb work, it's a little boggy. Oddly it runs a lot smoother with the choke about a third out...not sure what that means. Gotta get that checked. Also my back gets a little sore sitting in that perfect upright position after an hour. In my truck, at work, and at home all my seats are slightly reclined and that works best for my back. Maybe I can find a bike like that. Other than that it's a great bike, haha, didn't mean to complain so much about it.Welcome to the forum from North Carolina. CB450 is a cool bike.
