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? I'm guessing by now y...

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.

Those are fairly cheap on ebay. I would toss it.

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."

Re: Go Kart wiring

If you look at the diagram above, in the center of the "Universal Key Switch" there is a red and white wire coming from the center of the switch from a point marked "SRT". This is where the starter button would be. You will not find this red and white wire coming from your igniti...

Photobucket is the worst now. I need to redo the tutorial with instructions for postimg.org. It's like photobucket, only better.

Re: Spare Change Project First Bike

I've got good news! That's an easy fix. You can simply cut a new gasket out of whatever material you have at hand. I have old bicycle inner tubes that I keep around just for such a purpose. If you do not have something like this, you can literally cut one out of a cardboard cereal box.

Re: CB650 Spark Splug Problem PLZ HELP

Please forgive this question: Is there not oil in with the advancer on the CB650? I ask this because it's been a long time since I actually WORKED on a CB650. I have much more experience with the DOHC Honda's of that same era (CB900C, CB750C, etc) and there IS oil in the on those models. The oil is ...

Re: Carb clean; accel pump

Refer to page 20 of the MacGregor Manual link you provided. It should come out of the brass diffuser. The other hole is to allow it to refill with fuel. For what it's worth, when the accelerator pump is in actual use, it will happen in reverse of how it is shown in the manual. Fuel will fill the acc...
