Points gap is .015 Be sure the points have a fresh surface. If at all possible, get a spray can of a product called " LPS 1 ". You spray this di-electric product on the points then go ride. After the ride you can literally use a garden hose directly on the points while the engine is running and the engine will not miss a beat. LPS 1 waterproofs electrical components and is an excellent lubricant, ( acts like WD40 ). It is widely used in the avation industry. I have only found it in auto parts stores and the web. There are also LPS 2 and LPS 3 sprays. These two are for totally different uses. It comes in a sky blue can. Google LPS 1. By the way, you can download a free factory service manual at www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp Please rate my answer. Thanks.

    I forgot to add this image of the service manual listing. It is a 1977 or 1979 manual ( your choice ), but will be 99.5 percent the same as the '78 manual.

BEST WAY TO SET THE GAP IS WITH THE CELLO WRAPPER OFF CIGARETTE PACK......PLACE A PIECE BETWEEN EACH SET OF POINTS....THEN LOOSEN ADJUSTING SCREW JUST ENOUGH TO TURN THE PLATE IF NEEDED... NOW TURN CRANK SHAFT CLOCKWISE SLOWLY AS THE POINT ARM RIDES UPON THE "CAM" SURFACE WATCH YOU POINT GAP PLATES...AS SOON AS YOU SEE THE WRAPPERS START TO MOVE OR IF YOU PAPPLY A SLIGHT TUG ..IT STARTS TO SLIP...THIS IS THE BEST ADJUSTMENT SPOT......THIS TELLS YOU EXACTLY WHEN THE POINTS START TO OPEN.....CONTINUE TO FULL OPEN POSITION SHOULD BE A MINIMUM OF O.O12 TO MAXIMUM OF 0.017 INCHES....IF YOU USE THE FLAT BLADE FEELER GAUGES...MAKE SURE THE BLADE IS CLEAN...NO OIL OR GRIM...ALSO DO NOT TOUCH CONTACT AREA WITH FINGERS..WILL CONTAMINATE ....ALWAYS SPARY WITH A GOOD CARB /BRAKE CLEANER AFTER SETTING...OPEN EACH SET SO TO FLUSH THE CONTACT SURFACES
MAKE SURE TO BE CAREFUL WHEN TIGHTENING THE SCREWS CAN MOVE THE PLATE AND RUIN YOUR ADJUSTMENT, SAME GOES FOR THE TMING ADJUSTMENT ....

92 honda cb 750, oil light will not go out, bike won't start


Look around the engine oil drain plug and fill area and see if there is an electric sending unit( small plug with a prong for a wire) that is screwed into the engine if so check to see if its unplugged / could be a low oil cut off switch that kills all power to the ignition if the oil is to low ( or the wire is unplugged)

1977 cb 750 honda start and idle seem ok but bad loss of power


Check if the points plate is within the marks, it sounds as if the ignition timming is behind ( r e tard).
Recheck the valve clearance and the float level in the float chamber of the carbs, synchro the carbs and reset the air - mixture .
Hope this helps!
