Re: Vacuum routing

Here is a set I am most proud of. :D I bought them off ebay for next to nothing because they came off a fire damaged bike. Replaced a few parts and cleaned them up ultrasonically, and by soda blasting them. Good as new! https://s20.postimg.org/iv9qmn9v1/before_and_after_carbs.jpg

Re: Vacuum routing

You can completely remove the fuel shut off. It's only purpose is to keep the bowls from overflowing if one of the float needles sticks open. If will have to turn the petcock off when you park it. I've removed them on every bike I've had. Just run the fuel line straight from the petcock to the brass...

Re: Vacuum routing

Welcome to the forum! I do not understand what you are asking. There is no vacuum or any other kind of line that comes from the accelerator pump. Perhaps you mean the fuel shutoff? In the image below, the red arrow points to the fuel shutoff and the green arrow points to the accelerator pump (these ...

Re: 1981 Honda CB650C Clutch Rattle

Welcome to the forum!

Your clutch dampers may need replacing. Here is a link to a tutorial on replacing them. The tutorial is for a CB900C, but the procedure is the same:

Re: Wheels & tires

FYI: I moved your post into your original thread about them. No need for two threads.

Anyone buying them would probably like to know the date code on them as well.

Re: Tire pricing

I've parted out many bikes and the wheels and tires are always tough to sell at any price.

Re: Bike #5, 81 CB650C

Nice find! I was going to ask about the electra glide behind it, but I reread your post and saw that was from the PO's ad.

A common place where these old CB650's will leak is from one of the rubber pucks that cover the hold to the cylinder head bolts. From where is it leaking?

Re: Running rough after new (to me) gas tank

If rust got in the carbs and plugged a jet or two, it will not work itself out. Carbs will have to come off for a thorough cleaning. Give the tank a good cleaning as well while you are at it.

Re: Where can I get my bolts?

I've not known it to be important to change the head bolts. As far as what "paste" to use, OEM Honda gaskets do not need any kind of sealant. I can't speak for other brands. If you want to put something on them, I would use Hondabond sealant. If you use any kind of silicone, you run the ri...

Re: Wiring loom route

It pretty much just goes along the left side of the spine of the frame (unless the Z model is completely different).
