If you find that a certain member named "Rocan" gives you the cold shoulder or tries to tell you to paint your bike flat pink, don't worry,  you just stole his thunder.

But seriously, welcome to the site!  I've been working on a 72 CB350 for a few years now and theres tons of people on here with a vast amount of experience with these old girls so ask away.  $600 can get you a lot depending on how much you need to put into what you "need."  First things first, post up some pics and show us what you're working with!

you bastard!

really, flat pink would look great!

find my thread... "cb350 built by a teen"

been at it a year and a half. there was a member younger then us, Jared, but his project seemed to kind of fade (lost interest?)

keep at it... if you need pointers, im here for ya.

oh, and take it from me... listen to EVERYTHING a lot of the people say, and dont talk back like you know what your doing.

where are you located?

as for budget... good luck keeping to it. ive spent over 3 times the cost of my bike on parts and things since i bought it. its a big pit.

First things first. I need help with wiring. My bikes making 180 (give or take) psi on both cylinders. I figured before i tore anything up thats the best thing to do...?

So i looked it up and thats pretty good compression. BTW thats dry compression. i didnt spray anything before i tested.

Also i need a cheap yet reliable battery , considering i dont have one.
My clutch cables are brittle and look like rubish. so i want to replace those with some newer style black ones (hate the ugly coffee color of mine)

My theory on the bike not starting is: something wrong with wiring.
Checked the points: both set at .014 is that good or should they be at .012?

Cameras almost done charging haha sorry!

welp, indeed first things first, you need a battery to check the wiring.  Any lights turn on? look inside the carbs yet?  key in the ignition?  It's "suck-bang-blow" on these old 4 strokes... suck= carbs/intake, bang= plugs/wiring/ignition, blow= exhaust.  Simple as that!

your cylinders are in great shape man... dont tear into there as 180psi is more then enough.

start with a carb rebuild kit, and check that you have spark.

also you need a battery in there for it to start!  :D

trust me on this... fix the bike as to Stock specs, then start modifying. replace cables, etc etc. heres a good link to help you...

http://oldmanhonda.com/MC/MC.html

and heres the shop manual, which i uploaded.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/vd7d8z1e1nof8z0/cb250_cb350_shopmanual.pdf

and heres some damn good reading which will help get your theory down! i bought a copy, well worth the money...

http://www.mediafire.com/file/4t0ylmfmoaa/Performance%20Tuning%20in%20Theory%20%26%20Practice.pdf


and of course, some yoshimura cb350 porn (which no one has a copy of but me, apparently!)

http://www.mediafire.com/file/2nyiolvuq3409c2/Yoshimura%20CB350.pdf



so remember...  get her running stock first, then start modding. i have some spares if you need them... just stuff that never got sold that may be helpful to you.

I could be wrong, but isn't 180 psi too high?

Either way, better high than low. Welcome to the site man.
