    CL350 Clutch Question

    This is sort of a weird thing to search for, but I couldn't find anything. I recently got my '73 CL350 running, but when trying to get it to move, it stalled when I put it in first gear. I took both side covers off and inspected everything and found the pivot piece the cable attaches to wasn't...

    Getting rid of slack in throttle tube

    I got the one at the bottom of the throttle tube all the way out as well as the one right after the bend. The ones at the carbs though, should those be screwed all the way in to remove slack or all the way out? Ok. Thanks, Chicken. I got it sorted out.

    Getting rid of slack in throttle tube

    Hey, I recently got this throttle cable and this throttle tube. I installed them and I can't seem to get rid of the slack in the throttle tube before the cable actually moves. I do have a lower bar, but it's not nearly as low as clubmans or clipons. How do I adjust all that play out? I have a...

    How to make this seat look better?

    What is this 'football' you speak of? I'd like to do as much of this by myself as I can.

    How to make this seat look better?

    I've made my own seat pan for my CL350 and I got some 2" foam for it. I liked how the seat pan came out, but not so much with the foam on it now. The shape seems a little odd. Anybody have any tips for making this look a little better? The CL tank mount seems to make it difficult.

    CL350 headlight and other wiring questions

    Well ... lesson #2 learned. Just because all the gauge bulbs were working for a couple seconds doesn't mean they all won't blow ... Check the bulbs first.

    CL350 headlight and other wiring questions

    So I don't need to have the key in position 2? I just assumed it was like a car where it had to be in the furthest position to start.

    CL350 headlight and other wiring questions

    That's how I have it wired. The headlight is grounded to the case, the white wire is low, the blue is high, and the black is common power. I took the wires and bulb out for the high beam indicator. I'm just having a hard time figuring out why the switch is completely useless in ignition...

    CL350 headlight and other wiring questions

    I have been studying the diagrams a lot. So do I need a tail light hooked up for the headlight and/or gauge lights to work properly? I didn't have one installed while testing the headlight. Like I said, the headlight switch I installed works normally in position 1 so I would assume that it is...

    CL350 headlight and other wiring questions

    I'm making decent progress on my bike and I thought I was done with the wiring, but I have a couple issues at this point. 1. My friend gave me a headlight/bracket from a '66 Harley. I shortened all the wires and put in a 3-way (lo-off-hi) toggle switch. The problem is in key position 1, the...
