When to replace valve cover and adjustment cover gaskets

I've got leaks from mine which I partially remedied torqing down on them a bit beyond spec(probably not good) which helped a bit but not entirely. The gaskets aren't old at all but I've removed the covers a few times for hiding valves and other work so I'm wondering how quickly, or after how many re...

Re: Should I go up .001" on valve clearances as I've read in a couple threads here?

There is no need or reason to deviate from book specs unless you really know what you do. Special fuel or special cams might be a reason for things like that. If somebody should run into valve overheat problems with book specs, this is probably due to too lean. And this is most probably due to pod ...

How to fix a bent handle bar?

https://imgur.com/a/Jy88Ago I just noticed this recently and I'm guessing it was the result of one of the times I dropped my bike on its left side(obviously). I think it was one night just after parking it in my garage I was tired it just fell out of my control. I think I leaned too far to the right...

Should I go up .001" on valve clearances as I've read in a couple threads here?

What's the consensus on this? The info I read by some on sohc.net was a bit too technical for me so I didn't quite understand it but the claim is that it increases the life of your valves, particularly the exhaust ones, that otherwise within a few k miles your valves could fail I think I read. Since...

Re: Can't get voltage through relay for heated grips. Help?

JJ, the CB650 has a well known crap charging system so why the hell would would you want to complicate things any further? Buy thicker gloves! It's just for a few weeks out of the year. What can I say, I like my gadgets. And my skinny boney fingers are the coldest part of me while riding. Anyway, I...

Can't get voltage through relay for heated grips. Help?

No voltage to relay https://imgur.com/a/RgYZHgN Anyone have any idea why I can get resistance across the relay testing with the ignition but not voltage? Confirmed grips work connected directly. Confirmed voltage to the point(brown wore to rear lights) with ignition switch closed So relay works but ...

Re: Carbs leaking from the rear after removing air box

Okay, I removed the filters, tested it out for about a minute (trying to go to bed) and with a little cold it didn't die and didn't appear to leak from the rear so I'm guessing the filters were too restrictive. Better made for coffee :p. And I don't k ow how air works to have prevented them from lea...

Carbs leaking from the rear after removing air box

https://youtu.be/No1nrybJSSM Just removed the air box and did a preliminary pod filter test with coffee filters with rubber bands as I haven't even ordered pod filters yet. I know coffee filters are not the same but should this be happening? I have simply left the vent tubes from the carbs and the c...

Re: Air filter-1982 nighthawk 650. Air box or no air box

Did you do anything to support the carbs? They used to use the air box to keep them from hanging down stressing the boots to the engine.

The other at the drag strip for 12 years and it was still good when I stopped racing. No i didnt just show up i placed in points 2 years and had to file taxes one time so m...

Thanks. Good to know. Found some K&N ones, the two on two set for $50 barely used. Might take them if I can verify they fit okay. Uni's aren't that cheap. Like $15 a piece

Re: Air filter-1982 nighthawk 650. Air box or no air box

81 650 That wasn't you that I recently read in these forums that had a lot of luck with pod filters on several bikes? I think it was two Hondas, one with 1ltr engine, your 650 and maybe another make? The 81 has the same engine and carbs as mine. You wouldn't advise? I'm at sea level in SWFL if it m...

Re: Air filter pods

I'm not sure what pod filters your using bit I use Uni pod filters and I have no need to reject. I use the uni stage 2 filter. The problem with open air flow pods like velocity stacks is the need for reject and retuning these uni basically mimic the air flow the original airbox has. I've used these...

With the cv I learned to make the vent tubes short and cap them with a filter.



Short? As in just enough to reach them from outside(as they're connected inside/in between the carbs)? And how do you cap them with a filter? Is this a makeshift mod or are there parts for this? Thanks

Re: Air filter-1982 nighthawk 650. Air box or no air box

yes I tried and failed. Bike failed for 10k till the oil pump gave out on a long ride. Which bike and carbs? I've got the cb650sc with CV carbs and really contemplating getting pods. My air box is out and I dread the idea of putting it back in and all this extra space looks sweet. Would make a good...
