Re: My CB650

Ah they were the days! I bought a 400/4 for £100 and rode it into the ground, when the engine blew after a year I sold it on for spares for more than I paid for it :lol: I'll be selling on my CB650 Custom in the spring as I just don't need three bikes and I'm in the process of fixing up my 82 Nighth...

Re: My CB650

The bike in the link is very nice but I just don't get this header wrapping thing, if I've got chrome I want it to sparkle. Call me an old fart but lots of years ago I knew blokes that were doing this "Brat" style to BSA's and Triumph's but they were called customs, the craze then was to m...

Re: My CB650

Hello Rich and welcome, I was going to ask where you were located but decided to play Detective. Tesco shopping bag, B&Q paint, 3 pin plug sockets and a Middlesex Foods basket! You are in the UK :D do I win a prize? :lol:

Re: Myers' thread. Removing Carbs

This is the Ratchet Strap method https://s20.postimg.org/x334y0xcd/ratchet_strap_good.jpg use the strap to pull the airbox back into the frame, you gain an inch and a half extra room to play with. This picture is actually one of my bikes and not something stolen from the net although I have put it u...

Re: 1981 Honda CB650C project in Amsterdam

Please make sure that when you strip your carbs you have your camera handy so that if you are unsure about anything you can take pictures. George is dead on about this! Ask me how I know. :oops: Obviously we both learnt the hard way. :lol: That little choke lever connector spring "ain't half a...

Re: 1981 Honda CB650C project in Amsterdam

Hi myers, you are most welcome mate :) If you need to search for info or spares then your carbs are known as PD51F, you are lucky that they do not have "air cut off valves" on them as that is one less thing to cause problems or need expensive replacement parts :lol: Please make sure that w...

Re: 1981 Honda CB650C project in Amsterdam

Hi myers, that does indeed look like a bargain! If the tank was leaking??? and the paint isn't very good??? I think that my first option would be to see if I could find a replacement tank that doesn't leak, may work out cheaper and easier in the long run. To find a leak in a tank I would empty it, t...

Re: 1981 Honda CB650C project in Amsterdam

Hi myers and welcome :D It sounds like you got a bargain but unfortunately your pictures aren't showing :( That epoxy tank liner was probably used because the tank was leaking as I don't know anyone in their right mind that would use it otherwise as it never lasts.

Re: '79 650z swingarm bar centre spacer sleeve

Hi Dan, I would have assumed that they would both use the same swinging arm, but after checking the interwebby I have found out that the 79 model used a 14mm pivot bolt and later models used a 16mm pivot bolt. The only thing I can suggest is wait until one does show up on ebay or contact any bike br...
