    1973 CB350G Canadian Noob Build (Gotta start somewhere!)

    There’s yer friggen problem right there! Replaced and battery charges no problem. Not even sure how this sucker blew tbh. Anyway, I suppose I didn’t need to spend the money on that rotor but it’ll compliment the rest of my Ricks Hot Shot charging system nicely and it was an upgrade I was bound...

    Hey Buddy, just read your other post as well on HT. Anyway, I honestly don't think it's the bulb. The manufacturer states that the Rick's Electric Hot Shot charging system is fully capable of running a 55w light. It outputs much more power than the stock stator & reg/rec. So it narrows it down...

    You're making a lot of sense, thanks for this info. Thanks for all your help with this. I feel like my rotor may be toast bc the Hot Shot charging system is stated to handle the 55w bulb with no issues. Therefore, either my fuse coming from my reg/rec is blown, my rotor is done or the charging...

    Damn, ok this makes sense. I hope that is the problem. Can you check out this light and tell me if it's the correct bulb? it would be the 12V-35/35w one: https://fortnine.ca/en/eiko-quartz-halogen-bulb-h4-9003-p43t Would I loose my highbeam though?? Also, I should remind you that I'm running...

    35w eh?! This is the headlight I purchased. "H4 60/55 watt bulb with internal running light".. oof! Now I'm a bit concerned. I'm positive I can just replace the bulb though, correct? Thanks for the advice on temps. I didn't mean to say I would take a temperature reading during the plug...

    With an update on the bike, besides having small recharging issues the bike is running well. The battery is dying while riding. I took her for another test run on Saturday and she still feels sweet. The m-unit allows for the headlight to be turned off, so while riding I had it off and the...

    Time for an update!! How's going around here at DTT?!? I'm back and on the attack! For those of you still on board, I have a pretty exciting update on the 350 (finally)! SHE'S ALLLLLLIIIVE and running nicely. I've been hustling this spring to get her completed and all my hard work has finally...

    Hey bud! Sorry for the late reply. When I originally saw the msg I couldn't access my wiring diagram to confirm. I just double checked the digram and bike. I have an after market stator and rectifier from Rick's Electric so this will be different from the stock unit. My stator has 2 black wires...

    Ya I'd love to learn more about this design of yours!

    Excellent point! Yes, I had been warned about the brake set up from a few members. There's a fix I'm sure you're aware of with modifying the original brake pedal. I'm definitely going to modify that over the winter and also do some wiring clean up and build a small and tasteful fiberglass seat...

    Cheers bud! Got the last bit of tuning to do this wknd and hopefully post a ride video to show shes road worthy. If not it'll have to be next spring as I'll be putting her away for winter tomorrow most likely. Appreciate your support man!

    Thanks man! Actually I was very careful when I designed the battery box and believe it or not the wheel will never hit the corner of that box.. I made extra sure of that! As for the shocks, they are custom made to my specific measurements. I made sure the minimum travel was less than the total...

    Thanks for the kind words all! Really didn't know what to expect when it came to other peoples reactions, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's funny when you have an idea in your own head for so long without being able to show others you begin to wonder how it will be received. Anyway, thanks...
