Sure would be nice to be able to see the instrument gauge lights in daylight, though..  :-\
Well I made a vid of the gauge lights in the sun.  But something has changed w my youtube and i have no idea how to put the vid on DTT now.

Its hard to keep it out of my shadow and not reflect the sun off the lens at the same time.  The neutral and signal lights are nice and bright.  I could see the high beam indicator.  But its not as good.

do a search on youtube...72 CL100 led gauge in full sun.

Looks good- thanks for posting. My old incandescents are weak but still reasonably visible at a 0-degree viewing angle; the problem is the gauge is oriented such that I have to get up on the pegs to achieve that. I'll try one of the LED you guys recommend for the winker light and see what happens.

P.S. To embed a YouTube video, click on the "Share" link under the video title in the default YouTube view, then under the "Share" tab copy and paste the URL into your post on DTT.

Yep your'e right about the limited angle of the gauge.  Im not the biggest fan of that either. 

My gauge leds came from sparckmoto.  5 pack for $5.

It's a YouTube link.  Copy and paste.

OK this is weird.  My mini in the house no longer gives me the link address,  just says "youtube.com", However, macbook in the garage still does.

must be a setting I need to find and click.

There should be an arrow in the upper right of the video. its curved up and right. Click on it and you should get several share options (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) which also includes "copy link".

The easiest way is to find a teenager and get them to do it.

the Gods Honda has smiled upon me this this morning.

In the time it took to write the last post the slide freed up and viola!
 


So, moving forward again.  Pulled the rest apart.



Stuck choke,  the little flapper working well though.



a couple squirts of pen and a little persuasion...un-stuck choke working smooth.



Kids get to spend a couple hours in the pool.



Chain soaking in penetrant.  Working smoothly now.



advancer feels is working pretty smooth.  Just gonna trust my uncle John had it set properly...in 1978.



Farm store opens at 9 so gonna get ready to run and see about a battery and plug.
I did pretty much the same thing. Didn't sleep well or much for 2 days. Bike is running fairly well now. Little more carb adjustment and think she will be running sweet again. That's a nice bike you got. I believe the Honda gods are smiling on me also. Hope all goes well with the cb550 I also acquired at the same time. Got both bikes for 300.

I wound up replacing that original carb w a new ebay cheapy.  It was just worn out and had a bunch of leaks around jets and threads and such.
