Re: So would you use this to transport your 650?

I'm always somewhat hesitant to use anything from Harbor Freight that will potentially take something important with it when it breaks. :( I had a Harbor Freight wheel chock on my trailer. It gave way one day as I was coming to a stop and let my CB900C roll forward and fall over. Fortunately, it onl...

Re: Spare Change Project First Bike

Your bike has the VB44A carbs, so syncing them will not have an effect on how it handles under load. It will only smooth out your idle. If the bike is charging well, and has good compression, your problems under load are probably in the carburetor--something in there is still not clean enough. This ...

Re: My first CB650

Welcome, Stuart! What you have looks like a CB650Z model. I don't know a whole lot about those other than they were not available on my side of the pond (Hence, the reason I'm not familiar). Over here in the US, the 1983 CB650's were the SC models known as the Nighthawk. This was the year they began...

Re: My Cafe Racer

What size air filter pods did you get? Welcome to the forum! I can't answer the question about the pod size, but I can offer a word of caution: The carbs on his bike are PD51A carbs with mechanical slides, whereas your bike should have VB44A CV (vacuum slide) carbs. As the name suggests, the PB51A ...

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.

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