I would not say that it is being a anorak, it is just knowing the history of your bike.
The K1 was fitted with two different types of crank cases fitted. The early K1's had the crank cases used from the K0's  ( with slight changes in the castings ) and moved on to the later cases, which were used on some of the K2's.
The engine evolved over the years with 3 different types of oil pumps, 3 different clutch baskets, 2 different selector drums and so on. I don't need to see a engine numbers to know what year it is  :o Or if it has the wrong barrels or head fitted for that year. I have never found anyone that has wrote a book on all the correct detailing of the CB750K engines.

You can't beat knowledge gained by actually working on these engines over a lifetime....or practical experience in any job...and a good job for us that you and others are willing to share it! 👍
