first up here's a few picks of yesterdays efforts.
controls, headlight and wiring. i took my time and cleaned things as they went together. it is a lot like lego with no instructions GFN. it's worse in the respect that bits are missing and when
you have a choice, who know which one works.
i can't bear to look at it with the bars up so i reversed them and dropped them. they're unusable this way, the brake levers busted anyway. i can just flip 'em and stand them upright if i have to, but i'll prob have something else by the time i need to.
i slapped the tank and seat back on for proportion and i'm liking this combo more and more. besides this tank fits and the other two need encouragement. i may make all three fit eventually and swap 'em over when my mood suits. play dress ups.
i think i'll reduce the seat though. cut it down and strap it back together.
nice clean-ish engine.
busted right front bottom mount. yeah yeah i'll fix it. honest.
the washers did actually grab it a bit...
and in it goes.
this angle gives me vertigo.
it went really smoooothly. i would have scratched a fresh frame but with a bit of practice, and i know i'll get it.....
the arvo was spent putting on the right side stock pipe, easy, and then trying to get the generator off the 250 motor. it was tough trying to stop the engine turning.
the manual says.... "place a metal bar through one of the little end bosses
. (what are they?). rest this bar on pieces of wood placed on top of the crankcase . ?.
anyway, with heat, two of my largest screw divers, the final drive sprocket, my leg and a good socket wrench with the medium bar on and pop, out comes the bolt.
i had to do the same with the gear puller and the generator.
i'd like to know an easier way, i'm sure there is one, and i know i'll have to do it again.
i think the same way with gaskets. i'll use silicone if i have to but if you pull that part again it's a hassle to clean. i bought paper.
i didn't take any picks after i stood the bike, except gaskets. they'll come tomorrow.
this site's diagrams for my year and model are great. considering that not much was where it should be and that which was has been slapped on. knowing bolts and washers is a great help.http://www.cmsnl.com/honda-cb350-super-sport-350-k2-general-export_model16560/partslist/
i didn't get to the phone todayy. spent the whole day wrenching and the same is planned for most of tomorrow.
end of day six
