Re: Stuck & Rounded Oil Filter Bolt

I took mine to a local back yard Honda mechanic. He simply hammered away on vice grips until broke loose. I ordered a new one from a Honda dealer, for $20..00. They are common to many different models and easily available. The new bolt has a larger head 17mm. I took sage advice from someone on this ...

Re: Brakes

I have a stainless steel brake line for my 1980 CB650C on the way. Single disk brake. Do I need to fit the protective rubber sleeve that was on my original rubber brake line? I'm wondering if it is needed to prevent the s/s line chafing the other cables; wires and suchlike. Also one of the hold down...

Re: Brakes

(1980 CB 650 C with 4 bolt reservoir lid) The manual shows that there is a gasket fitted; however the reservoir kits don't indicate a gasket is included. Mine does not have a gasket, it now leaks after cleaning and flushing. It did not leak pri...

Re: GM HEI: Cheap and Extremely Effective Ignition Upgrade

Has anyone else had experience with these ignitors? I would be interested to know if they reduce the amount of warm up time needed. On a cold day I need ten minutes, minimum; not that I am in a hurry to run off on a cold engine mind you. I have also found my bike is a lot happier now that I use a b...
