Even with the built in protection, lithium cells are not a good idea on CB/CJ250/360
Bike doesn't charge well enough and regulator isn't accurate enough to prevent battery damage

Indeed.

I initially 'upgraded' to the Kohler reg rec but it didn't control the voltage well enough, going above 15.

I've now replaced with one of Matt's Sparckmoto regrecs and it seems to be working well.

I've replaced all the bulbs with led, so the load when running is circa 4 amps, which shouldn't stress the ancient charging system too much.

I used one similar to this on my CB750, but mine has 4 circuits instead of 3.  It's pretty compact.

Ahhh that's nice. Much tidier than the one I got. Good shout.

Nothing doing over the next couple of days as I wait for parts (annoying parts like connectors; wires - nothing exciting). Boring.

Question: when installing the exhaust headers and bolting everything up I was getting quite a lot of play, even though everything was done up tight and I THOUGHT I'd got the headers fitting snug against the ports. Took the headers off and the new crush gaskets didn't look like they'd been touched. Any suggestions?

Do you have the half moon shims in there?  They go in-between collars and the flange at the end of the pipe.

I've got these in there:

Hmm interesting. These are what came with the bike, and I simply swapped them over from CB headers to CL headers. You reckon it's worth getting new/longer shims?

The short ones are the ones you want. No difference between the CB and CL, but the CJ has different ones.
The longer set pictured above are the kind for the smallest SOHC fours.

Aight thanks Matt. Any suggestions on getting a tighter fit? I was thinking that upon adjusting the flanges maybe I'd knocked the joints out of position causing them to be loose...
