1976 CB360 scrambler/tracker/heck of I know!
« on: Jul 17, 2018, 15:44:18 »
I picked up a 76 CB360 last week from a guy I work with.  I had mentioned getting an older bike to tinker on and he fixed me up!  I've restored old Willys jeeps and 2cyl john deere tractors in the past but never worked on any motorcycles.  I had an 84 Honda xl80 when I was a kid but that's about it.  Motor was stuck and the kickstarter shaft was bent.  I did get it freed up but I'll be tearing into the top and bottom of this one.  My goal is to go with a dual sport type tracker/scrambler build and actually use it that way.  We have lots of backroads and forest service roads here in the Russellville AR area I'm from.  I found an article on a bike that really caught my eye. http://www.pipeburn.com/home/2017/09/18/honda-cb360t-tracker-ironwood.html
I like the fact that they kept the air boxes and passenger pegs, it makes it a little easier I think. Does anyone have any idea of the tire sizes those are?  Seat will probably have to be a little thicker if I actually want to ride it much I think.  Anyway I've read several threads already and look forward to getting back on a bike.  I haven't done much more than take a friend's bike around the block a couple of times in over 20 years!

Great bikes.    Common motor collective offers some great videos on YouTube about these bikes.   I would definitely reccoment doing the timing chain tensioner  I put wiseco 10.5/1 compression positions in miy 360 I was very happy with

Got a lot of parts stripped off tonight.  Wow this thing has a lot of wires!  I cant imagine needing all of them when I get done.  I cant seem to figure out how to get the throttle cables loose from the carbs?  I'm going to get the engine pulled in the next few days and reinstall the tank and figure out what I want to do for a seat. My old one is toast, including the metal pan.  Is my first step figuring out what seat I want to run and then figure out the seat loop?  Who makes a quality seat setup that will have sufficient padding?  A lot of the ones I see look too thin.  Its dirty but not near as dirty as the 48 CJ2A I restored.  I had buckets of dirt and grease when I got it torn down!

Throttle cables are pretty simple.  Not sure if you mean they are stuck in some way, or if you can't figure out the mechanism.  Loosen the 4 bolts in the pic.  On the top cable, you have to remove the bolt closest to the carb all the way until it hangs on the cable, then pull it up and slide the cable through the slot in the mount.  Then push the cables until they line up with the slot on the throttle pull, slide the cable through those slots and push the end of the cable out.

Ive found that you can remove the carbs with the cables attached, and refot cables before fitting carbs, which is easier than when the carbs are on the engine.

Undo the carb retaining clamps
Remove the right cylinder carb to cylinder rubber adapter
Carbs will come out on the rhs

 I actually will leave the cables attached to do a quick cleaning or if you're rejetting, etc. to access the float bowls. May work with the stock box, too but I never had one on my 360...

Regardless, you can pull the carbs off the intakes and flip them upside down, then pull the bowls off and remove jets/etc that need to be cleaned. Works great for a bike thats been sitting a short amount of time and needs the jets blown out, but I'd definitely still recommend a full cleaning on a bike that's been sitting an extended period of time.
