    What's going on now over at Ichiban Moto ?

    Re: Ichiban Moto : Yamaha 500 cafe racer build I don't know what you're waiting for on the carb, that blue tape and some JB Weld can form a real nice float bowl and get that thing fired up! i've been watching your vid's and i think with your skills, you could fab up your own in no time!

    Honda CB/CL 350 Engine Reassembly Tricks

    my best advice, Go Slowly, and think about what you're doing. make sure things are clean and free. this helps prevent cross threading and don't put a tool on a nut or bolt before fingers get it to go on first. get all the torque settings printed out nice an big on paper and have them handy...

    CL350 Jetting Question

    #105 secondary and i think #70 or maybe it's #68 for primary main........check the manual....if that's what you've got in your box of goodies i'de just clean em up and maybe order new rubber gaskets.....the jets are only 2 bucks a piece new so either way you'll be good.

    Honda cb350 CV carb issues

    at 50 mph. mine sounds like your dragging a knight in shining armor down the street by his nuts! but seriously, there is a lot of valve noise in these guys and i've adjusted all over the place even pushing the limit of the required clearances to see what would happen and still not a lot of...

    Honda cb350 CV carb issues

    sorry, but you're on your own there....even tho mine hadn't been run in 17 years, i knew it ran when parked so i never touched that screw....it worked before, it'll work again and for once that minimalist approach worked out for me. you don't need to listen to me, but i'd say one thing at a time...

    Honda cb350 CV carb issues

    hmm...the "idle at 1100" make me question my fix a little......does the throttle grip snap back home with ease,lube? while putting the tank back on maybe twisted the split cable shortening one side and lengthening the other ......if throttle grip snaps back easily, check and see if the idle...

    Honda cb350 CV carb issues

    your problem stems from the throttle cable adjusters between the carbs....one or both is screwed out too far simulating a slightly twisted throttle......if one is out further than the other the engine will rev creating a vacuum that will ultimately pull the other carb into play and increase the...
