    Getting a new title in Colorado.

    Hey all! Going through the steps to get a new title for my 76 CB550 here in Colorado. Thought I'd share what I have learned so far.

    CL175 Cylinders

    Well, they look a damn sight better than mine. I would guess just a hone would do it. If you run your finger down the wall towards the edge (top and bottom) can you feel a "ridge"? If not then a honing should be all they'd need, and I would be interested in taking those of your hands.

    CL175 Cylinders

    BigR- well... might you be willing to part with the one you have? if not I'm going to wait it out on ebay. Wissy- thanks, but I have a set right now that I could use if I wanted to bore it out, but I'm trying to save money. All I need if I get my hands on the cylinder is some piston rings and...

    CL175 Cylinders

    BigR- I spoke with Micheal from Batemans a while back and he said that the sloper and vert style cylinders were identical, and that any year would be safe. Just to make sure someone didn't deck the cylinders too much. Wissy- Yeah looks like the same motor. Don't know if I could save the...
