SOHC/4 Bikes / Re: 1974 CB550 Shift Rod (?) Oil Leak
« Last post by zekd on Today at 07:57:51 PM »
Most likely the oil pump gaskets. Take the shifter off and then remove the side cover, degrease the whole area and clean very well. Then throw some baby powder on it and then start the bike up and wait till she starts to leak and you'll know exactly where the leak is coming from.

SOHC/4 Bikes / Re: Swing arm bushing, cap, dust seal etc.
« Last post by mcswny on Today at 07:55:35 PM »

Im using a repro Dresda swingarm and noticed that with cups/seals, it is way too tight in the frame. My arm does have the flanged bronze bushings. Is there no concern about leaving those dust caps off with dust/dirt/road grime? If I can just space them on either side evenly to get the slack out, that would be much easier than having dust cups made or finding a replacement that works properly.

I'm sorry, I'm not the best to help you with this probably. Maybe someone else can chime in?

SOHC/4 Bikes / Re: Honda 750 K3 wiring help
« Last post by rb550four on Today at 07:55:34 PM »
Thanks Lucky , I ordered the Clymer's Manual  on Monday , it should be here Friday, so I went on line and printed some very colorful wiring diagrams, nice , but I would rather the color legend on the bottom of the page and color initials on wires . The computer colors aren't accurate enough, I don't want to have to guess if I have the right colors, I want to know in black and white.  Do it once, do it right.
  Usually the extra wire is a female connector and is considered to be parking lights for the Europeian market. The lone wire that I guess is the extra wire is Brown with a blue line in it and it's a male end....you would think that being a male end it should plug into something right?

So today I finally decided to get my motorcycle permit and signed up for the motorcycle safety course. It lowers your insurance and basically goes over the riders handbook and when you're done with that you get a license and it's free.  Did you guys like the video of my exhaust? I know it was short but I just wanted feed back on how it sounded.

Thanks guys! A pretty good day so far. I haven't worked on the bike the past few days because of freezing weather and rain and slush. I'll get back to it again soon.

Sounds good. It'll sound even better once the carbs are dialed in.

Good move on the MSF course. It pays for itself in savings to your premiums and is much better than testing at the DMV.

CB750A - Hondamatic / Re: Cb750a emergency kick starter
« Last post by Bokeh on Today at 07:44:46 PM »
Just a heads up - The '76 kick starter is different than the '77/'78.  Due to the additional width on the plate/aluminum frame cover that the rear foot peg screws through the '76 wont clear it or at least it would be very close.  The '76 has a straight arm whereas the 77/78 has a curved arm to clear the foot peg.  We just realized this as I picked up a 76 for parts.

I like 17//48 because it moves when I want it to - and I am 250+ pounds.

530 chain is plenty for the bike.

how do you figure its not what i want to hear? im coming up with other alternatives because you cant just buy the next size up for this style carb, you must know that since you seem to think your a cb650 god. the jet is pressed in, making it non removable. ive seen plenty of these bikes with pod filters, your trying to tell me i need to be an carb guru to figure it out. so if you want to be a smartass about what i should or should not do then dont bother posting on my thread. if you believe there is no other option then running the stock airbox then your wrong, beacause plenty of guys do this.
