1971 CB 350 clutch is VERY low (close) - How do I adjust it?

My 1971 CB350 clutch is VERY low (close) at the handle - any way to adjust it? I tried the nuts at the handle to shorten the cable but when I do it pulls fine then then BAM, the handle clicks fully closed. Bad clutch? Ideas?

On the left side sprocket cover is a nut and screw , if you loosen the nut you can turn the screw you can adjust the clutch. You will want to loosen all your cable adjustments first so you have the adjustments later when you need them again. If this does not work, take the cover off and inspect the pieces for damage ,missing bearings, cracked parts,bent shaft,etc. If you pull the shaft out of the motor be careful there is a small bearing that will usually fall out of the motor after you have left the room if the bike is on its side stand.

Dose anyone have a wiring diagram for 1986 honda cb350sg


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. To download your manual please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

How to adjust clutch cable


I don't think there is an adjustment at the clutch handle.If your trying to bleed the clutch (being hydraulic) it is on the side of the engine left side as your sitting on the bike / get a hose and a bottle and attach to the bleeder valve on the clutch slave cylinder / remove clutch reservoir cover and have a towel covering all and any paint (be very careful brake fluid will eat paint if left on the paint for too long) attach hose to bleeder valve and the other end of the hose in the bottle/ loosen the valve at this point let gravity do the work/ DO NOT LET THE RESERVOIR GET LOW ON FLUID IF AIR GETS IN THE LINE IT IS VERY HARD TO REMOVE. If your feeling bold you can pull in the clutch handle and close the valve then let go of the handle and reopen the valve pull the clutch handle and close the valve repeat repeat and so on until you have flushed about a 12 oz bottle of fluid through the system, when done close all valve and top off fluid to proper level ( should be a high level mark on the reservoir) reinstall cap and check lever feel . If it is a cable there should be an adjustment in the cable itself or on the engine. the adjustment should be a 10mm or 12mm sized wrench loosen and lengthen the cable to take any slack, you can also adjust the clutch lever this way. Let me know if this helps or if there is a separate concern.

1971 Honda CB 100 will not turn over


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

Need to know what part number is and description of solenoid for 1971 cb350


Any 12 volt solenoid will work. Yamaha has one for about $35 that is about the same size. It just has to have the two battery post terminals and two activator wires ( you may have to change the plug ends). OEM part # was 30580-306-670 starter magnetic switch assembly

How do you set the carbs on a 1971 Honda CL175? It runs but idles high and when you get it up to higher speeds it dogs. I am thinking that I jsut need to tune the carbs but not sure.


yes, you need to tune the carbs, by adjusting the low and high speed jets. there should be to slotted screws on the carbs, this is an older m/c, that is the set up. start bike and try tuning them. the carbs may need cleaning if you cant adjust

Time chain loose how to fix


I gather that the bike is a cb350??, anyway the adjustment is located underneath the intake manifold (where the carbys are bolted onto) in the centre, it is a bolt head with a fixing nut.
Essentially you set the flywheel timing to "T" on number 1 cylinder, then you undo the locknut, then undo the bolt head nut about 1/2-1 turn, this allows the tensionioner to take up the slack, then tighhten the bolt head nut, then tighten locknut.

I just picked up a 72 350 that has been sitting


Change the oil, gasoline, and spark plugs. The carburetors will probably need to be rebuilt so be prepared for some leakage (fire extinguisher handy!). And of course don't ride it far on those old tires. Good luck, great find.
