Summary:

A very nice bike to start out with

Faults:

The Cb 450K that I currently own is having a little trouble running on both cylinders. It cuts in and out on the left cylinder while the right runs fine. I am not sure if this is due to electrical problems or not.

For the most part it'll start up and run without any problem, it just runs really rough. I need to figure out what to do, to get it to run right.

If anyone has any information to fix my problem it would be appreciated. E mail to maxmiers05@yahoo.com

General Comments:

This bike has a very nice, durable body.

Summary:

A very good commuter; not much else

Faults:

This is a used motorcycle. It had mostly electrical wiring problems. Both the primary and secondary ignition systems had to be redone. New connections, coils, and spark plug wires.

Once all this was replaced, the bike ran fine and reliable.

General Comments:

This bike is a very good commuter, good fuel economy, good speed in traffic, but too light on highway use.
