Greetings, another from MN! + story that happened today, need some insight.
I go by the name of izzo. 27. MN. I love guns, cars, bikes, music & staying fit. I'm a dance choreographer & own
My own dance studio. Army Reserves for 9 years. (I know, I look young for my age).
About a year ago I started to look into the cafe racer style motorcycles, I was hooked. I didn't
do much research up until 2 months ago. I finally got my first custom 79 honda cb650 about 2 weeks ago,
been riding ever since. There's definitely still a lot I need to know, & i'm here to absorb all knowledge possible.
Glad to be apart of the community. :)
As for my bike.... Looks like it has a small oil leak from the top of the head gasket, previous owner told me
The bolts werent at the right tension. There's also a oil leak from the gasket behind the sproket. Looks like
If i want it done right I will have to take the whole motor apart & redo everything.... Sighs... For now just been crusing
& babying it until winter comes. Hopefully no big issues will arrive till then.
Now comes my story...... something occured to be while i was riding today..... As i pulled into the hwy ramp, 1st gear was fine.... Shifted into 2nd... Ok... But after that, i tried shitfing into 3rd, it wouldn't catch. Sounded like i over revved it trying to get into 3rd. I had to pull over. It was weird. I stopped for a moment. Turned off the bike, turned it back on, held the front brake as i tried to go into first, which it did but my clutch didnt enguage!!! It kept rolling like there was no clutch. Wtf...... So i turned it off. Got off the bike, called my brother for a tow, looked around the bike to see if i can see any noticeable damages. None. I started the bike again, enguaged the clutch & voila.. It like nothing happened. Bike worked and shifted like normal so I continued my way home. Someone help explain to me what happened so i can better understand. Thanks!
