cb650 engine rebuild Step 2 and 3 of 4
Cleaned everything as best I could, then I took the head and cylinder jugs to Mar automotive in the near northeast.
They cleaned and checked everything, installed my new valve seals, cleaned up the combustion chamber, intake and exhaust ports. They also said I had 1 leaky valve, so they fixed that too. Turned out great, quick turnaround, friendly guys, $110 charge for everything. A while ago they also did the cylinder head on my S2000, and checked out the cb450 head for me, so I can recommend going to them if you have engine work that you want done.
Next, and last step, is re-assembly of the engine with new rings, installation of a Lockhart vintage oil cooler, go through my wiring harness to check everything, and then fire it up.

Searching for KZ’s on Craigslist has been pretty entertaining. It ranges from jokers asking tons of money with no photos, to super terrible photos, to bizarre trike creations, to wild drag racers. I’m not sure if my favorite is the ‘Don’t need it need it gone’ or ‘kz650 needs new computer’.
