Re: Japanese Industrial Standard Screwdriver - How to make

I uploaded this thread a couple of years ago and I just stumbled across this article. I thought it would be a nice adjunct to the thread.

Re: milky colored oil

Maybe you are right.

With the spark plugs out (no compression resistance) does it catch and spin normally, at least occasionally? Then it's the sprague clutch.

Re: milky colored oil

Sounds like the sprague clutch has corroded.

The R&R for this is $2,000. There are some short cuts others have posted. You might want to try this.

Guessing an unknown thread from the photo is a challenge. Please excuse my question if it is so obvious that I fail to understand. May I ask, why you don't remove it for measurement?

Re: Need a part for a 1971 Honda CL450

Is the part unique to the cl450? The reason I ask is I have several dead cb350f.

Part number may also be helpful.

Re: milky colored oil

that is, as other stated, water/coolant in oil. stop what your doing and find the leak.

my money is on a head gasket. pull the plugs. which one is cleaner than the others? take the head off. if you are lucky a new gasket is a quick fix.

I am out of my model posting in this thread. Please excuse my contribution if inappropriate. I bought a new cb500x and that filter is the same as the gl1800. In the cb500x it sits out in the open up front and I thought, "gee, wouldn't a bigger filter sitting there also be an oil cooler?" The other s...

The prevailing wind is from the northwest. This means you ride with the rain if you go clockwise. Not an issue on a sunny day or if you have no choice in direction.

Re: Insta Motorcycle Tow by BillyBob1

I would personally not do as suggested. Also, good points about cold oil pressure. Prolonged spinning a cold motor to 3,500 rpm like this must be very wearing. But, if one were simply intent on pursuing this approach, then one could put in very low weight 0 viscosity oil in addition to pulling plugs...

Re: Spark Plug Comparison

Changing plugs between warm up and race is a recognition of carburetion richness and poor vaporization in a cold manifold at idle. Running warm up plugs helps reduce fouling. Plugs can be selected for steady state conditions. Racing with higher rpm and near full throttle approaches this condition. I...

Re: 1983, 1100I timing belt replacement

The right (throttle) hand side sprocket moves. Thats why some prefer to fix/clamp it in place.

Another way is to count teeth between marks before you change belts. Teeth dont move. Move the sprocket back to match up the marks the same number of teeth.
