CB500/550 / Just checking
« on: April 15, 2020, 12:13:01 PM »
My 500 has an aftermarket oil cooler fitted. I am about to change the oil and filter. I presume that draining the crankcase and removing the filter will also empty the cooler as its situated above the engine. I plan to add the correct ammount of oil, run it to fill the cooler again and then top up to the correct level.
Sound correct??

Humour / News from france

Yesterday, the French authorities deployed the military to supermarkets, in order to keep them secure and ensure social distancing is being respected.
However, after one old lady coughed, the armed forces have capitulated and are now negotiating terms of surrender with the shoppers.

CB750 / Info
« on: March 28, 2020, 09:06:19 AM »
Been trawling through my backup disc to see what could be deleted.
I have a description of how to make a float height check tool for a cb750 and an article on twin disc conversion. Not sure if its for a 500 or a 750. Originally by a chap called Ben Hiles, and probably from the US site. If they are of any interest, I will post them.

CB500/550 / Questions re Yoshi mods
« on: April 17, 2019, 08:59:44 AM »
My 500 has had a 605 Yoshi big bore kit fitted and also a cam with a Yoshi grind, it is running standard 4 pipes and airbox. Seems to run well enough, but not had a standard 500 to compare.
Out with some friends and they complain of a smell of petrol when following me, odd because there are no leaks and it runs smoothly and idles well.
Anyone know if the valve clearances change for the Yoshi cam?
Not sure whats in the carbs as I did not do the work, but assume the jets would have to go up a bit.
Ignition is by dyna and is correctly set, but will recheck as I have a new strobe that needs a test.
I know I need to do a plug chop to see how its running, so hopefully this weekend as the weather is supposed to be good.
Anyone with any general knowledge of this conversion as there is not much on the internet.
Thanks in advance

Project Board / Bike valuation

I need to get my 500 four independantly valued for the insurance company. Any ideas who still does this?

CB750 / Cycle X
« on: October 17, 2013, 09:20:18 AM »
I guess most folk are aware of this supplier in the USA, but they have a lot of interesting parts and some remade modifies bits as well. Always worth a look if you are restoring or customising a CB750. Site link below.

Hopefully of use to a few

CB350/400 / CB400 frame/exhaust question
« on: May 01, 2013, 09:40:10 AM »
Hi All,
Fitting an exhaust to the 400 and the silencer bracket seems to be the wrong shape. It is possible that the frame loop that the exhaust bracket mounts to is slightly bent. Any cahnce of a picture of the bottom loop? Or even better how the silencer/bracket/loop attach. (in case i am doing something silly)

CB350/400 / Neutral switch connection
« on: April 09, 2013, 06:00:12 PM »
Silly question but how does the wire attach to the switch?
Received a 400/4 in parts to assemble and I did not take it apart. Wondering if something is missing.
Thanks in advance

CB350/400 / Points wiring
« on: February 19, 2013, 04:47:10 PM »
Just a quickie, but is the small harness that goes to the points fixed to the sump or along the bottom of the clutch cover?


CB350/400 / Picture of electrics for 400 four
« on: December 23, 2012, 01:07:46 PM »
Hi All.
I am in the process of reassembling a 400 four for a friend. It was stripped out fully and came with a new wiring harness. I did not strip the bike, so wondered if anyone could post a picture of the arrangement for the electrics under the left hand side panel. I think it is right, but would like confirmation.


CB350/400 / Quick tyre question
« on: September 05, 2012, 10:49:13 PM »
Looking to fit new tyres to a 400, any recommendations?
Appreciate any advice

CB750 / Rear brake linings
« on: July 28, 2012, 08:15:36 PM »
Looked at mine today and they seem a bit down (about 3.5mm thick) Anyone know how thick new ones are before I replace?



CB750 / Tighting cylinder head
« on: July 22, 2012, 12:44:55 AM »
Just a quicky to see how folk do this

Read lots of bits, some just torque in increments and others torque to the value, release and retorque.

What is the consensus here?



CB750 / Genuine or pattern
« on: July 16, 2012, 10:19:10 PM »
Need to get a set of rings for the nK1 as I have finally sorted out barrels and pistons, genuine are £26 a set and pattern at £14 a set, so a fair saving over 4 sets. Any thoughts? Cannot really see how you can go too far wrong here, but willing to listen to experience.
