HI All I need a piston to deck clearance for a 71 cb motor. Is the piston in the hole or os it 0 at the deck? We havent broken the motor appart yet and we are trying to get all our ducks in a row with what pistons we can use in the bike. also I know this seams to be a strange request bit does any one have or know some one who has a v-rod headlight assembly? We have checked out local HD dealers and no dice. Every thing on e-bay is going for more than retail so if any one has any sourses or help for us we would realy appricate it.
also check out the updated site http://niskygarage.logical.net
Thanks in advance
Richie

Which CB? On my CB450, the edge of the piston is at 0 deck. The squish band in the head is stepped in .007, so the squish clearance is the head gasket thickness (.040) plus .007.

I don't know about the CB350s.

I have a '72 cl motor (same as a cb) that I'm hoping to tear into this week. I can check it for you then, if you haven't already gotten a definitive answer. I looked at your website - cool project. You should post some pics here, for everybody whose too lazy to follow the link. It's worth a look.
