Re: any opinions on these different carburetor rebuild kits?

I rebuild carbs as a hobby, so I buy o-rings in bulk from Marcos Rubber, and stainless steel hex bolts from Bolt Depot.

Re: Coil Relay Mod on 83 650

Its' just a little trick to improve your spark by a couple of percentage points. When the power has to travel though the entire wiring harness to get to the coils, you lose as much as a full volt. By going directly from the battery, you get full battery power each time. :lol:

Re: any opinions on these different carburetor rebuild kits?

I have no experience with either of these rebuild kits. I have used Sumo brand brake pads and they seemed to perform as they should. Odd that they should say that it is compatible with the CB650 AND the CB650SC Nighthawk since the Nighthawk had a 118 main jet and the CB650 had a 120.

Re: Coil Relay Mod on 83 650

There's no need to cut the black and white wire at all. Simply unplug it from the coils and plug it right into the 86 terminal on the relay. I do not understand what you are asking in this sentence: So the signal is coming from the igniter, 86, and 87 goes to the wire that then splits to the coils y...

Re: Coil Relay Mod on 83 650

I did not look at all the details, but the rough drawing in your link does not take either the kill switch or the ignition switch out of the equation. The only difference is they work to operate the relay, which THEN provides power to the coils. I do a coil relay on nearly all the bikes I rebuild. I...

Re: Vacuum routing

Here is a set I am most proud of. :D I bought them off ebay for next to nothing because they came off a fire damaged bike. Replaced a few parts and cleaned them up ultrasonically, and by soda blasting them. Good as new! https://s20.postimg.org/iv9qmn9v1/before_and_after_carbs.jpg

Re: Vacuum routing

You can completely remove the fuel shut off. It's only purpose is to keep the bowls from overflowing if one of the float needles sticks open. If will have to turn the petcock off when you park it. I've removed them on every bike I've had. Just run the fuel line straight from the petcock to the brass...

Re: Vacuum routing

Welcome to the forum! I do not understand what you are asking. There is no vacuum or any other kind of line that comes from the accelerator pump. Perhaps you mean the fuel shutoff? In the image below, the red arrow points to the fuel shutoff and the green arrow points to the accelerator pump (these ...

Re: 1981 Honda CB650C Clutch Rattle

Welcome to the forum!

Your clutch dampers may need replacing. Here is a link to a tutorial on replacing them. The tutorial is for a CB900C, but the procedure is the same:
