That CX, I really like the best
Welcome from Georgia......darn good looking collection.
You might want to consider some changes to your diet.:)[/QUOTE]
Ha ha........yea, kinda set myself up on that one..
Cap is new, petcock is new.
Fuel tank was cleaned with evaporust.
I will pull the bowl off again.
I do have a gassy smell while running, and after I shut it down.
New spark plug, fires but sputters some.
Filled the tank all the way.......runs great. No sputter, no hesitation, gits up and goes.
So bottom line, may be carb issue. huh?
I have the...
Man, that thing looks cool.
Nothing like that around here though.
I'm still trying to get this little 100 dialed in......thinking I may have to pull the engine "again" and have the head...
Got any pictures to share?
Welcome, and pictures would be nice.
Love them pictures...............
That is cool, wished I could have done stuff like that growing up.
Couldn't even afford to have bicycles, let alone stuff like that.
Didn't get my first motorcycle till I was 50.
I would like to see some pictures of that.
I wouldn't mind some cooler weather, been in the 100s last few days.
Will start cooling down though today. We have 2 temps down here.........hot,...
ha ha........I didn't mean that way, just this feeler I have is a wide blade. Gets in the way trying to get in there to check the clearance.
But I'm going to order some of those from Amazon or the...
Thanks for the info guys.
I'll give it my best and see what happens. I'm a Mcguyver kind of person too. Well, mostly cheap, from being broke.
Man the clearance is is almost paper thin. I think...
Battery is new, new after market carb. New harness.
Looked at the valve adjustment, not sure if they are set right, feelers are too big to fit.
Plus, how would you hold this after adjustment....
Geeesh.....this little thing is giving me the fits.
Rode it around the hood the other night, parked it. Tried to start it last night, after work, would not fire up. Kicked and kicked and kicked.
Agree with the "greed"......pure greed.
Yep, the pump and all pieces of this engine have been disassembled and cleaned, fortunately I only had to use this as a training aide.
I'm building a...
Ha ha.........never had it filled to know.
Bet it didn't, but might have been the reason for the fried top end.
Thanks, it was a good learning experience.
I tore open a CL350 engine at the same time just because I seen a lot of permatex around the edges, and man, what a lot:
Well, got the engine rebuilt with new kicker. Reinstalled, and running.
Been wiring the lights and stuff. Got a cb160 headlight bucket, now need a speedometer to fit in there. (one that works for...
Cruisin' Image is the way to go.........IMO
Thanks for sighing in, sounds like you're disgusted......lol....:-).
And welcome......................keep us posted on changes.
Damn nice bike.
Listen to everyone else.
Trust me......seriously considered, till I thought about cleaning the rotor filter out during oil changes.
That was my thought train to. Drilled and tapped a hole, just didn't hold.
Couldn't get a good angle on the shaft, so I found a replacement..........pulled the engine, and went to...
Well, got the engine top end done, back together, and in the bike.
Put the kicker pedal on, then it stripped. Couldn't kick it any more.
So coming back out and tear down again.
