Key tumbler

key1.jpg Had some trouble with the worn key only working properly in the fuel cap. Had a key made from the code on under side of fuel cap, guaranteed to work "as long as the mechanism functions properly". I took a chance and $20 worth of factory specs key later, no luck. After several min...

Great, thank you. :!: I thought this might be the fuel starvation problem. Other posts suggest filling the bowls, which I drained and thought would fill on their own by stroking the throttle. I had the carbs worked over by a professional and using a clean tank, it should be ready to run. How do I ma...

Re: Vacuum routing

I must mean the fuel shutoff. The line that attaches to the nipple shown is what I need help with.
My compliments to the very shiny set of carbs.

Vacuum routing

Looking for the answer to where the vacuum line from the accelerator pump ties in on my '81 CB650C.

I've not been able to find a service manual for this year on the site, if anyone can plug me in, many thanks.
