Re: 1981 cb650c charging issues

Did you have a chance to check those fuses yet? I'm curious.

Re: 1982 CB650SC Wiring

I just re-read your original post. Since you are trying to reconnect them, the third green almost certainly attaches inside the headlight bucket. I've taken a bit of your wiring diagram and indicated the wires in question:

Re: 1982 CB650SC Wiring

It's funny that I just dug up this old picture for another thread. These are the extra wires that are in the headlight bucket for the non-Nighthawk CB650s: https://s20.postimg.cc/7bo4zt9q5/cb650_wires.jpg The black and brown are both hot wires. Greens are grounds. The Nighthawk may have an extra gre...

Re: 1981 cb650c charging issues

I would think it would blow a fuse, but what else has the PO done? Have you checked the fuses--even the back side of the fuse holder? Maybe they bypassed it somehow. what about the main fuse on the starter solenoid? It's hard to find one these days that someone has not replaced that fuse with a piec...

Re: 1981 cb650c charging issues

The key switch can potentially be fix just by turning it on and off about fifty times. Sometimes they get a bit of corrosion on them and this will clear it off. The brown and black wires are both hot wires. I can't imagine that its a good thing that these two be connected. I looked at my old picture...

Re: 1981 cb650c charging issues

Three rotors is quite excessive. And $350 a pop is very pricey! From where are you getting them at that price? Rick's Electrics sells new ones for less than half that: https://ricksmotorsportelectrics.com/results/ Before you replace all your electrical components again, we need to sort out that wiri...

Re: My other project: 1975 GL1000

These old Honda's do have a lot in common. Although I like the Goldwing, I swore I'd never work on another one. Too much trouble getting all the stuff off. :P Here is a project I did a few years back. The timing was perfect as the two bikes from which I built the one were listed on craigslist at the...

If you can weld, you can make anything fit. I'm not saying it won't bolt right in, I just have no experience with such things.

Honda still makes them. You can try your local Honda shop, or buy them online here:

What is it doing? Did you see the carb cleaning manual in the General Discussion forum? It has step by step instructions on how to reassemble your bank so the chokes open and close smoothly.

Re: Hello from a new member. 1979 Cb650 with a couple of issues.

You say you cleaned the carbs, but did not take them apart? It's tough to get them really clean while they are still together. There are a lot of internal passages that can get plugged. Also, if the fuel tank has not been thoroughly cleaned, there may have been debris in the tank that came out and i...
