They originally got around 100-110 miles/gallon. We are waiting to see what they get with this ethanol crap.
The CB pipes will fit a CL and are easier to come by, but I like the CL look better.
In reference, we paid $450 for the '69 and it needs cables, tires, cleaned up, air filters, plugs, etc. We paid just a little more than that for a running '72 that needs the same things but came with a bunch of spare parts including a clean tank, forks, wheels, etc. Both had titles.
I will warn you... the air filters are around $35 each. Unless you need new jets for some reason
We found it hard to find tires in those sizes without going totally knobby or paying through the nose for street tires. There are some nice, cheaper Avons that a few of the local guys use and swear by them.
just be a vagabond, living out of a backpack on a little Honda, cruisin all over the damn place....
Dont forget the SL's also.
hehe. I meant to add that a lot of people go with pods and usually don't rejet or only one size diff. good catch westondc. Jets are cheap and easy to find. Beware, many on feebay will put stuff on there at ridiculous pricing and saying you can't that part anymore. Look on the fiche sites 1st. They usually have what you need and cheaper. I found these guys to be pretty cheap compared to the other online places... http://www.hondapartsnation.com/As far as the gas, we have no choice. All of it has ethanol out here. I sold my Jeep Wrangler because the gas mileage, although bad on the east coast, dropped like a rock out here with this stuff. True, cheng shin makes tires this size but, I have to be honest, I won't trust my ass to those tires with the amount of rain we get where I live. They're probably just fine if you don't ride in rain much.I love the CL pipes. I've seen some pretty hot cafe'd CLs that give me ideas. Like this...No saying the CB won't be cool too. The main difference is the pipes as far as looks. I'd go with which ever you can afford and is most worth the $$. A CL with other pipes...then there's this CL modified... drooooool!
We have 2 350 scramblers. They are a good bike, good decent engine and trans. Much better than the 360, not as big as the 450. They originally got around 100-110 miles/gallon. Good luck!
I know but, that's what honda advertised. I get 50 mpg with my HD so who knows. I know they won't get it with the #$%*ty gas we have now. Edit: Now you got me wondering if I read it wrong. Hmmmm.
