Ouch, I didn't check the cylinders or rings. When I got it running it ran death rich, as if pouring gas into the intake. The carb was cleaned and checked at least five times. Maybe a crack in the...

No, just metal. It's cone shaped on the end. I've seen other carbs that didn't use the rubber tip on the needle. Is mine screwed? PO melted it off? Can't crank it tonite because it's raining cats and...

Took the carb off and apart, found the float needle had a piece of junk on it. I polished the needle and seat with metal polish. Hopefully when I crank it tonite all will be well. My new tank from...

Here are pics I tried to clean up in photoshop and labled. It faces to the rear of the bike, or as we say at work- aft.
If the wife starts to use this term, aft, I'll naturally say no to the trap...

The gentleman started and ran today with an improvised tank. Hoo, she ran ultra rich- sucked gas and smoked white gas fumes. Uneven throttle up, cylinders firing unevenly. Static timing set with an...

Awesome bike! Hardly used- that makes it special, as you get to break it in and use it as it was intended. There must be at least 5-10% of new bikes that the owners lost interest and keep in the...

Just about the coolest old Honda I've seen here. Super shape. Were it me, but of course it's not mine, I'd keep it stock. Racing it is a different matter. Sam Green will hook you up correctly. A good...

Lord have mercy- Got my POR15 kit, as mentioned here, used the Marine Clean and found probably 50 pinholes beneath rust bubbles on the paint on the gas tank. I'd repaired a few on the underside of...

Spokes, I'm going to try that beefing the compression.
Looking on eBay for a tank is like getting what I've got or spending more than I paid for the bike. Thinking it over, patch the pinholes with...
