    Passenger Pegs & Rear Sets

    Wondering if anyone knows of a good solution to running both passenger pegs and rear sets. I’m working on a 71 cl350 and was considering replacing the bolts at the the bottom of the rear shocks with footpegs. If they’re the same thread pitch I can’t think of why it wouldn’t work.

    Headlight Burn Out?

    The R/R appears to be functioning normally. The battery measured around 13.3V and climbed no higher than 14.2V revving. I suppose the next step is to test the voltage across the 35W headlight.

    Headlight Burn Out?

    The wiring run goes from the battery to the keyed ignition, to a 14ga bus into a 16ga wire at the RH control cluster, which leads to the LO/HI switch on the LH control cluster, and then to the headlight. All is 16ga except for the 14ga + bus. I haven't checked the output of the alternator yet...

    Headlight Burn Out?

    So I'm riding in Bellingham, WA late last night. I turned onto a country road going about 45mph and switched on my High Beam. Not 10 seconds later it's suddenly totally dark. My headlight went out. Thankfully I was on a straightaway. I pull the clutch and shift down, pull to the side of the road...

    EMGO Shorty Muffler Fitting

    Bought 17" reverse cone mufflers to fit on a 71 CB350. Header OD is 1 1/2" muffler ID is 1 3/4. I used the reducers that came with the mufflers and they still feel very loose when clamped down. They can wiggle quite a bit and don't take much force to slide off. I stacked two of the reducers...

    Wiring "Trunks"

    I've read the 101 and FAQ threads, but I'm still a bit confused over how to wire the main + and ground wire that most of the bike's components will connect to. In a stock cb350, the fuse between the battery and ignition switch is rated to 15A and connected to a 16ga wire. Max current for a 16ga...

    Where to find this style of connector?

    Can't find connectors like this anywhere in town, anyone know where I could find them online? Look like maybe 2 into 2 open barrel butt connectors. I like them because they're so compact, trying to use as many crimped connections over soldered as I can. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Exhaust wrap - curing?

    I've read that you should run the bike after wrapping the pipes to cure the wrap, making it smoke a little. Does this need to be done right after wrapping when the wrap is still wet? The bike isn't running yet but I wanted to have them ready. Will it still be good to cure in a month when the...

    Wiring Lengths - How important are they?

    How critical is the length of a wiring run? How much does the resistance of wiring come into play in this application? I'm making a harness from scratch and I plan on only giving enough length to meet my components and a few extra inches on some runs to make changes later on if necessary. My...

    Compression Tests - Affect of Carbs, Air Filters, Exhaust?

    When doing a compression test, would running non-stock carbs, air filters, or mufflers affect the overall compression value? Could a test be run without all of the above and give accurate results? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Reliable Lithium Battery?

    These lithium batteries are evolving so fast, it seems the ones available now are much stronger than batteries from even a few years ago. Anyone used a lithium ion battery that's served them well they could recommend? I've heard that lithium batteries smaller than stock aren't reliable for...

    CB350 - Wiring Concerns

    I'm building a wiring harness for a 71 CB350 using 18 gauge wire from british wiring. I ordered a length of every color used in the stock harness but I'm wondering if I should go with 16 gauge or larger for some sections. Here are the areas I'm most concerned with: - Headlight using a 35/35w...

    Brat Style - Seat Clearance

    Many of the builds I see with brat style hoops and seats only have a few inches of rear tire clearance. What is this? Do they just pray they never have to use the rear suspension?
