Re: Cylinder Head Cover Bolt Problem

Well, that bolt is not going to thread back into that hole the way it is. That is for sure. Do you have a picture of the bolt hole? It looks like the hole might have had a heli-coil in it (a remedy to a previously stripped hole). If that is the case, you may be able to put a new heli-coil back in......

Re: 81 CB650, Where will it go from here?

Thanks for the affirmation, Ghost :) Got it all back together. Bolts are in place. Left loose until torque time. Cam, chain, timing marks are all lined up and ready to go (I actually felt like I accomplished something with this one).... :D http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u457/m_hills/Motorcycle%...

Re: 81 CB650, Where will it go from here?

Picked up new head bolts, ran tap down bolt holes (tap went right in without any problem :) ) put cylinder back on for the 4th or 5th time :D, and put head back on.... Now i have to come up with a nice accurate torque wrench so that I don't go screwing up all of my progress!!! Man I wish that I coul...

Re: 81 CB650, Where will it go from here?

Got it all back together only to find that I was unable to thread my head bolts back in!!!! I then tore it back down, pulling the cylinders back off to get at the bolt holes.... Guess what I found.... There was a bunch of engine gunk in them from disassembly.... FREAK!!! Why didn't I think to preven...

Now that I am getting closer to puttin...

Re: 1980 CB650z RC03 Café Racer (ish) project

You could always call them "pub racers"..... Well, maybe not........ as fitting as that may sound, it's just the plain truth that it would be a horrible idea! I suppose that most of my bad ideas have sounded good in theory :-) ( To clarify, I am not saying too drink and ride! I actually do...

Re: 81 CB650, Where will it go from here?

Replaced my piston rings and jug gasket. Put cylinders back in place.... All seemed well... then I noticed 4 large o-rings in my gasket kit :shock: pulled jug back off, replaced o rings around cylinder bases, put jug back on :) I guess that it was too fun to only do once!!!

Good idea on the scrub down :D I just pulled the pipes out from under my boat yesterday :) I'm working in Illinois through Thursday (happy independence day) so I'll try to remember this weekend.

Re: 81 CB650, Where will it go from here?

Pulled valves, cleaned the crap out of the head, replaced valve seals, lapped valves, and reassembled head!!! Kinda a lot of work :D [URL=http://s1068.photobucket.com/user/m_hills/media/Motorcycle%20Pics/20130629_125838.jpg.html] http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u457/m_hills/Motorcycle%20Pics/201...

Re: 81 CB650, Where will it go from here?

That chain guide had apparently been out of commission for quite a while. I don't know how long the previous owner ran it like that, but those parts were worn completely smooth!! The tensioner looks to be in pretty good shape, outside of some cracking in the plastic/resin. I've been looking for repl...

Dished my tank.... Pretty happy with the lines :) http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u457/m_hills/Motorcycle%20Pics/20130602_152139.jpg I tore down the motor to replace all of the gaskets/seals and such last weekend too.
