    540cc Honda 360 Engine

    Wow. Can't believe I've missed this until now. A video of that engine running would be glorious. (hint, hint) ;D

    I had a similar issue with my old coils. Whenever I rode in rain for more than 5 minutes the right cylinder would quit firing. I couldn't see any insulation oozing out but it was definitely shorting out somewhere when it got wet. though I could never pin down where. I just replaced them with...

    Also, to make life easier I make a template for the other side. Should speed up fitment.

    More muffler progress. Proof that with enough patience, accurate-enough cuts for tig welding can be made with a hand saw and sand paper. This is just the tip. Piece on the left slips over the piece on the right, which is a transition from the 1.5" baffle to the 2" outlet that I wanted for...

    Electrical- Well I got back to Anchorage. My tank and side covers are STILL not done. I had wanted to wait till I have my top triple clamp (he is using it for color matching) to do much of the electrical nonsense on accounts of a large portion of the wiring being in the handle bars. Decided not...

    Any of you who have made your own headers, how did you make the lip on the head side for clamping them down? I was thinking of possibly just make a series of small cuts in tabs which I could then bend outward and fill with welding... wouldn't be pretty but it would probably work.

    Didn't get to work on the bike at all last month. My tank and side covers were supposed to be ready when I got back from work on the 15th, but the guy painting them hadn't been able to even start on them yet. Lot of car show work and such. Anyhow, my gal was visiting Anchorage from SLC so it...

    CB360's-from build to blog - 2013, MDS (Mo Dumb Shit)

    A close friend of mine from Utah was doing some photography work in FL. Last night he sent me a picture of what he called "The sexiest Honda I've ever seen in my life" that he found while wandering around the Milk District. I recognized it immediately as Brendon's 360. Funny small world.

    Thanks to both of you for the input. I will wait on the jets. PJ- Just the air correcctors. I got them from you probably about 1-1/2 years ago or more. If you are interested, once I get the bike running I would like to send you my carbs. My plan for the exhaust is new headers and making my...

    Jets I am about to put in an order for a set of jets. Not completely sure of a range to start with so any input would help from those of you who've gone down this road. quick reference list of engine mods and info that matter for this: I am at sea level in a cold area. Anchorage, Alaska...

    Disregard. I checked the valve clearances and did it again. Vastly different. Got 179 PSI Left and 172 PSI right. Whew. I had myself scared.

    Ok. I did an acentone test before the clay test and all valves sealed nicely. So, I've got the engine loosely mounted in the frame and did a compression test. Does anyone have an idea of what a cold, unseated compression ballpark figure should be? The book says to tests while the engine is at...

    +1mm OS Valve Clearance

    Damn. True. Ok I've been reading about that most of the day now. Actually I've seen those terms pop up occasionally and have been happily ignoring them because every time I started to try and figure them out I got a headache. But as I now understand it, squish is basically important for...

    +1mm OS Valve Clearance

    Did it (hopefully) right the second time. Results are posted in my build thread. Both exhaust valves left plenty of room at .058" and the Intake valves didn't even touch the clay that was an median of about .08" thick. Thanks for the help.

    '74 CB383 (CB360) - a Mighty Mouse adventure bike

    Ok. I did two clay tests. I figured the first one was unreliable because I forgot to set valve clearances after bolting the head and valve cover up. So I re-did the test. I guess I should have put the clay on thicker because only the exhaust valves touched. So I measured everything anyhow...
