Re: O ring

If you have a place like Fastenal where you're located, you can take one in and they'll help find the sizes you need.

Re: O ring

I know Sean uses Marco Rubber to buy them in bulk. If you contact them with the sizes you need, they can hook you up.

The 1979 CB650 should have PB51A carbs on it. The VB44 did not arrive until 1981. The VB44A's were used on the 1981 and 1982 CB650 and CB650C, and the VB44C's were used on the 1982 Nighthawk.

Re: Go Kart wiring

There should be six wires--if you are counting the solid black the goes to the starter motor and solid red that goes to the battery.

He should have VB44A carbs--presuming his bike still has what it left the factory with.

Re: CB650 Spark Splug Problem PLZ HELP

I thought you had the slide carbs on your bike? Those are PD 50's--which are the slide carbs. if I do this trick wont it be misleading because once the gas empties from the bowl and the float opens the rest of leftover gas in the fuel tube will come down and change the result?

Re: Carb clean; accel pump

Impatiently waiting until 10am Tuesday when the dealer opens to find out if I can order one. Until then, looking up aftermarket alternatives just in case. They stopped making OEM ones a while ago. https://www.partzilla.com/product/honda/16021-460-771?ref=56d0414e9b361a955671392cf42ac7ec5a2d4f72 Her...

Re: Just went in to adjust valves for some 'clack'n and now #1 pipe cool and idles horribly

At least we've identified the problem. Unless you actually have a hole in your piston, zero compression can only be caused by a valve that is stuck open. I'm feeling like the head is going to have to come off.

What is the compression like on #1 now?

I notice that you try a LOT of things when something goes wrong. I hope that you are testing things after each adjustment. I think we already discussed "chasing your tail."
