The oil seal behind the front sprocket was a common fail on hondas of that vintage . My cb400 had the same weep .It never lost very much and would hardly need a top up between services if filled to the upper mark ,sooo I just left it and called it an automatic chain lubrication system )))
Well, it seems the leak was even smaller than we thought. After cleaning everything up a little more, it didn't leak one drop yesterday. It did come with a hefty amount of dirt+road grime+oil stuck to its bottom, so that can explain some of the past dripping.
We made great progress yesterday
Dismantled and put the master cylinder back together. Bled the line again...and the brake still sucks tremendously. My father ordered a rebuild kit so we'll try it again properly when that arrives, but my hopes are not too high.
We cleaned the bottom of the carbs, synced them and adjusted the trim. Also changed the plugs. Now it seems to like riding on both cylinders, and the power is actually pretty nice. Power might be too strong of a word, but the bike moves nicely, and it handles quite well
It's a really comfortable bike, and once that was improved I could start to understand how someone can make a long trip on this bike, actually. Well, not 1.5 years long...but still
We then rode it some more:
