    Another go at a CB360

    Did a little bit of work and a lot of parts sourcing this last week! As is apparently common to these bikes, the upper triple was cracked on both sides. Luckily I found a good used one for cheap, and will install after I rebuild the forks and modify the lower for my headlight bracket. I also got...

    Another go at a CB360

    Before I got even close to finishing my last bike, a '74 CB360, I had to sell it in pieces due to life kind of getting away from me. That was about 6 years ago, and I've regretted it ever since. Well a few weeks ago I found another '74 CB360 a few hours from home, and a few hundred bucks and a...

    Long bolt/stud/rod for foot pegs?

    Probably a dumb question, but hopefully someone can set me straight. I'm removing the front pegs from my CB360 and am fabricating some rearsets in the passenger peg location. Does the long stud/rod with which the front pegs are attached support anything else? Is it common practice to just...

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    Ok, been a long time since last working on this heap! But now that summer is coming I'm getting my butt back in gear! Im contemplating weather or not I want to get into the engine all the way (split the case open), or just new gaskets, check the timing chain/guides, and clean it up real well...

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    Thats a good point on the side covers! They are kind of shaped like little wings, I could see them working themselves loose.. I've been sketching up ideas to makes some custom side covers with a better looking scoop than the stock ones. I was also thinking of going with number plates instead...

    Pin wholes in bondo work?

    I like to use 3M Platinum Plus. I use it both at work and at my personal shop. Its pretty cheap from the local supplier, has very minimal pin holes, is easy to sand, and sticks to bare metal, primer, and OE paint. Rage Gold and Extreme are also good choices. I don't really like Z-Grip, its a...

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    This project is starting to change gears pretty quick... the more I think, the more I want to do! I have decided on running some K&N style filters instead of the stock boxes. Still keeping side covers because I like the way they look tho. I've also been working on a new wiring harness that will...

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    Ok, I have almost definitely identified the the INNER throttle shaft seals as the culprit. It took a lot of looking around with some carb cleaner, with a long hose on it and waiting for it to evaporate completely between test areas, etc.. I dont see a procedure for throttle shaft service in my...

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    I'll check em out again after work. I still havent figured out exactly where the leak could be, but im almost thinking it IS throttle shafts... Although, it wasn't an issue before my rebuild, so I can't help but think it was something I did during reassembley. What else should I check out? What...

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    I do definitely plan on custom exhaust. But I would prefer to keep the stock air boxes, or at least the side covers if I go with aftermarket filters. Just my personal taste, I dont like the emptyness with pods and battery box removed. I noticed some other things I dont like either. The goop...

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    Did some more testing, its nit the carb tops... you think there could be a crack in the body or something? Im thinking more about getting some Mikunis for this thing. I heard 28 or 30mm? If I went that route, are they pretty easy to get "right"?

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    The 2-3/4 x 3/32 worked like a charm! Got it back together and running now. There still seems to be a vac leak, but it is somewhere ob the carb body, not the intakes. Not on the throttle shafts, and not around the diaphragm... I'll have to investigate more tomorrow. But it does return to idle a...

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    I started with srews 1.5 turns out.. I didn't make it to the shop last night, but I'm headed there right after work. Are the aftermarket jets parts of my problem? I have seen a few jet kits on ebay for cheap, maybe I'll pick one up. Do you know what size O-ring is used for the bowl gasket? One...

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    It does show more white in photo.. its a very light tan in person, not much different than it was before... Do those jets sound about right? The most interesting thing to me was that it ran so much better with the intake leak... other than idle it was great, and pulled as fast as I was willing...

    CB360 project Daily Commuter!!!

    Crazypj- you know I always value your opinion! How short would you go, if you were to do custom exhaust? I saw a CB360 that Kickstart Garage in Redding built, and I really like their setup a LOT. Theirs looks to end about halfway between the pivot for the rear brake lever and the rear axle...
