Hey guys,

Got this '76 CB550 about 2 months ago and have been having a great time with it so far.  This is my first motorcycle, but I've been rebuilding/restoring/modifying vintage mopeds for a few years now.  Actually got this bike through a moped trade, so it ended up costing me next to nothing.  I've addressed (or had others address) most of the minor issues and maintenance operations.  Still has a slight leak from the valve cover gasket and the clutch is tough (or impossible) to get into neutral when at a dead stop, so I'll be looking into those things soon enough.

Why don't you see if you can get some Barnett clutch springs for that model, and as well a  new clutch cable if there is no more adjustment on your current one?

Welcome and congrats!
