View Full Version : Honda CB shifting issues

04-20-2010, 5:36 PM
As I've stated before I have very little experience with these engines but I'm slowly learning. The CB350 I'm working on has an issue shifting from 2nd to 3rd, it goes but its "fiddly" and not a clean shift. How hard are these trannys to work on? Is this a common problem? I've rebuilt Triumph and Harley transmissions so I do have experience.

Funny thing is another friend is looking at a CB650 with the same problem.

"Is this a common problem?"
yes all those,350's,360's hav a weak spot between those gears,,,
on the inline CB's ,,such as the 550,650 ,750's its usually 4th gear that has a problem

have you adjusted the screw at the pushrod????

No, frankly I haven't tackled the trans yet. To busy trying to get the thing running properly. He only mentioned the issue the other day. Said it popped up after he took it to a local shop, no shifting issues before that. I'll try and fiddle with the screw when it gets running. Thanks.
