Re: Center Stand

Thanks for the link George. I have seen similar before but just not sure of what to do yet .. I have borrowed a single airflow meter from a friend but its for car use really. The exhaust is the orginal but dented and cut off and it looks bad.. I used to have a mouse issue too in another small shed I...

I still need to buy an exhaust pipe (recommendations are welcome) and a few other small items.. also trying to source an inexpensiv...

Rich There is a tab on the original stock exhaust where the rubber stop fits. You may have to fabricate something for an aftermarket exhaust. Thank you. Yes I wil have to f...

Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

https://s20.postimg.org/46n88amil/solenoid.jpg What are these wires going to? Is it an inline fuse holder with a 30A fuse? If not, it should be. This is not the cause of your trouble (no matter what they go to), but it is something that will need tending eventually. It originally came with a 30A bl...

Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

It’s hard to say if the other cylinders are kicking in after 2k from your video just a loud ticking sound can be heard.
Yes timing & compression test is probably a wise move. Remove the carbs first..
Yes the timing is set for all 4 cylinders.

Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

Do you have spark on 1&3? Do you have the right HT leads going to the correct plugs?
On mine 1&4 are connected to the left hand coil 2&3 on the right coil. If you turn it over do the plugs 1&3 become wet?
Where a outs are you?

Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

Does the engine run on 4 cyl when you rev it up?. If it only running on 2 cyl it should be very lumpy/ hard to rev? Do the pipes 1&3 only stay cold on idle?

Re: why would pipes #1 & 3 be cool?

If your confident the spark is ok then it will be carb issues. Does it stay cool only on idle? Do they warm up when at higher revs?
Is it standard air filter or pods etc ... I am no expert but I have learned a few things that were going on in my 650.

Re: Engine advise please

Thanks George your a star, so it does look like the ring have been put on the piston in the wrong order. As for the rest of the bike it’s still n progress. Welding, painting all done but the engine and carbs have been the thorn in my side. Still have quite a lot of wiring to do and am still n the lo...

Engine advise please

Hi, So I did compression test on my cb650: Results were: 1: 140 psi 2: 90 3: 75 4 90 The story was this engine was rebuilt by a Yamaha tech.... so I have taken off the head and it’s now on the bench with the chambers filled with diesel to see if the valves are leaking. To be fair they don’t seem too...

Re: My CB650

A couple of new photo's The frame has been repainted using a different paint than before. Quite pleased with how it looks now. https://image.ibb.co/dhmGrR/IMG_1080.jpg The engine will have a clean up and some paint where needed. https://image.ibb.co/mecNWR/IMG_1079.jpg Rich
