Re: No spark on cylinders 1/4 82' CB650sc

Have you tried swapping the coils to see if the problem moves to the other plugs? You may also want to check the gaps on your pulse generator. While you are there, check for continuity on the wires coming from the pulse generator to the ignitor modules. Sometimes they will get pinched and broken. Al...

Re: 1981 Cylinders 1,4 not working

... or by turning the 22mm nut on the right hand side of the engine clockwise (gently as the 22mm nut is a dummy on a very thin shaft) I always recommend using the rotor bolt on the other side of the engine to do this--even though a clymer or similar manual recommends the 22mm nut.

Re: Spark Plug Wires

You can buy 7mm plug wire in bulk at most auto parts stores. Then just cut it to size and screw on the terminals.

Re: charging system

Here is a link to a trouble shooting guide for the charging system. It was written for the DOHC Honda models of the same era, but the system on your bike is basically the same.

Re: Mafic's Nighthawk CB650sc Starting troubles

Your carbs almost certainly need cleaning. The ethanol fuel has turned to syrup in your float bowls and has plugged things up. Take a look at the carb cleaning manual sticky in the technical discussion forum. PS: I made your issue it's own thread. That way there is no confusion as to which person's ...

Re: 1081 cb650 carbs

That is part of the accelerator pump. This is not my picture, but the black arrow is pointing to the brass part. The ball bearing is under the brass piece. This is on the float bowl of the #2 carb.

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.co...

Re: Where is Tallahassee?

We made it through ok. The storm was all hype for us. I never lost power at my house. I had to work pretty much straight through since Sunday, but I'm back to normal duty today.

Re: Wire harness repairs

That is definitely not a factory standard. Someone probably installed it because it was easier than getting a new 30a blade fuse. At least this person did not eliminate the fuse all together. Most of these old solenoids have a piece of coat hanger as a fuse. :roll:

Re: 1982 CB650SC carb cleaning

Have I referred you to the manual in this thread yet? http://hondacb650.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=14053 It will be very helpful to you in knowing what to do with your carbs. BTW: I see that someone has already replaced the original screws with stainless steel hex screws like the manual recommends.

This sentence confuses me. First, this is carb #2, not 3. Next, the circled area is no where near the drain screws on the other carbs.
