Re: how on earth are you supposed access #3 sync screw??

Good for you jj, unfortunately I was too busy to get anywhere near my shed yesterday.

Re: how on earth are you supposed access #3 sync screw??

Unfortunately I can't be much help in this case as the top end is off my Nighthawk and my Custom has slide carbs. All I can do (when I get time to get in the shed) is prop my carbs up on my engine, roughly in the correct position and see how bad the access is :?

Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

Thank you guys for finding really nice words for me, sounds a bit like an obituary. Fortunately too early but thanks anyway. :D So I just like to say that I am all right and there is no reason to worry. I am completely off the motorcycle stuff since that crash and I do not look in here frequently a...

Re: Center Stand

Hi Rich, not sure about thread size but this may help, this is the blanking screw, brass part is from a Morgan Carbtune, second pic is of it fitted to the carb.

Re: how's my spark?

jj, you would need one for the 12mm plug if you decide you want to buy one. They are not an essential tool, you can play about with your mixture screws to get the same results. They are what I would describe as a lazy tool :lol:

Re: CB650C clutch cover leak

Also, those little gasket rubbers on top of the engine, they are cracked and need replaced....I have no idea what they are called. There are several of them, looks to be two different styles for the same function based on where they are located, if memory serves (the bike is not in front of me righ...

Re: CB650C clutch cover leak

Secondly, has those gaskets for the rubber rings on the top of the heads gotten any more available of late? Last I checked, they were pretty rare, and I really got tired of the 650 peeing a little oil on my left leg every time we went out. My leathers started to get fouled! Ideas?? :? Do you mean t...

Hi bubba, https://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-CB-550-650-CLUTCH-COVER-GASKET-79-82-SOHC-11394-426-306-650-1-/122123250801 and welcome back. This one seems to be a bit thicker than your average pattern gasket. Pay no attention if a high postage price appears in any link I provide from ebay, I'm in the UK ...

Re: how's my spark?

All i can say is even if the spark looks good outside the engine it can actually be no spark when phe plug is mounted. :roll: Seems to me the best solution for you is actually find someone that is a bike mechanic to look over your bike. Or he could use one of these, but I don't think that is anythi...

Re: idles really high. Can't even adjust black idle knob to resolve it

Two things I dislike about the CB650. :x On the DOHC Honda's the starter clutch is easy to get to and the cam tensioners are right there as well. Well I haven't had a DOHC 650 Honda yet, but I wouldn't rule anything out. Maybe the design faults are why SOHC 650's are relatively cheap..............a...

You have my bike! Is that the 650? Take her back out and fix her up and we can be best friends! Well, we can see... :lol: You do realize that when your bike is running you will have more experience with a 650 Nighthawk than I do? Then it'll be your turn to give advice :D I have had my bike running ...

Re: Center Stand

Nice exhaust on ebay, I'd have considered it myself but its a hell of a drive for me and its collection only :(
