Getting closer to first start, but my time to focus on the task at hand has been sporadic. Next order of business is to join the 2 halves of the carbs, mount, and run the necessary cables and houses.

Re: Pod Filter Alternative?

I finally was able to get an adapter made for the airbox to accept a large pod filter. The filter is a bit smaller than stock, K&N RC-8100 Universal Clamp-On Air Filter ( https://www.knfilters.com/search/product.aspx?prod=rc-8100 ). Since I don't have a TIG for welding stainless, a friend of a f...

Auto Fuel Valve

I replaced the original gas tank on my '82 CB650SC with one from a '80 CB650. I was hoping for a definative anwser from the folks on the board regarding the auto fule valve. Can I/should I completely eliminate the auto fuel valve since the '80 tank does not have a vacuum-assisted petcock? It seems t...

Re: Carb vent pipe and fuel joints

I was hoping that was the case, but wanted to confirm with the more knowledgeable folks on the forum. I wasn't clear on my original post, I mean the rubber tub that attached to the long end of the brass fitting.

Carb vent pipe and fuel joints

After a short break while waiting for parts, I hit a snag in rebuilding my carbs. The vent pipe and and rubber hose on the fuel joint between carbs 2 & 3 are dry rotted. Can anyone point me in the right direction for an alternative. With 35+ year old bikes I would think this is a common problem....

Re: Spark Plug Wires

Thanks all, bulk cable it is! I really don't want to spend the extra 100 bucks on a Li battery, but its my understanding that they bleed off virtually no charge when sitting for long periods. I'll also be able to mount it in any position since leaking wont be and issue, plus its small enough to hide...

Re: Wire harness repairs

You really don't need to have the OEM connectors unless you are trying to do a restoration. You can get individual connectors for each wire--you just then have to make sure they get plugged it right every time. That being said, here is a source for new connectors: http://www.oregonmotorcycleparts.c...

Re: Wire harness repairs

That dont sound as stock harness at all as the harness is connected to the regulator/rectifier and that is connected to the stator with at least one connector, hmm. :roll: Well, my tip is to get rid of all unnecessary connections though as to much of them can cause to much resistance. :wink: 8) Thi...

Re: Wire harness repairs

Electrical system as a harness is not so difficult to understand though but the more connections the more recistance. :roll: There is the silicon rectifier though that i know is connected to the function so you cant start the engine with a gear engaged without having the clutch engaged.

Re: Stator/Brush Wiring Harness

I'm finally getting to the stator output repair. Is the sequence of the yellow wires/pins in the connector critical?

Re: Pod Filter Alternative?

long ago on the sohc4 site someone used the plenum and a large single filter to replace the filterbox. it was on a 550 and looked like a good setup. I finally found the post it was the Olivia build. I reads the owners ride reports after installing the mod, all positive. He went from a small round o...

Re: Wire harness repairs

Well anything is repairable but more connections means more resistance and hence voltage drops, so to me the easiest soulutions is in fact to replace it all. :wink: But by all means repairing it is also a solution. :wink: I can assist with the length and color of all cables if you want to build you...
