CB750 / CMS problems
« on: April 16, 2021, 05:36:55 PM »
 
 Nice day today so thought i would go for a ten mile ride on the K1, after warming the bike up for a couple of minutes i set off, got about 100 yards down the road when there was a horrific rattle  coming from the exhaust, got back home and discovered that on number two silencer the inner baffle had come loose. This exhaust system was bought about 30 months ago from CMS, in that time it has only done 500 miles.
 
  Tried to contact CMS by telephone (031 (0) 320 265120) to see if they could help, but the number was not recognised, does anyone know the correct number, also if they can't or will not help, is there something i can do to stop the rattle ?

 Popping and banging on 1 and 4 cylinders sounds like a duff capacitor, try swapping with 2-3 capacitor to see if the problem moves to those cylinders.

 On the flip side of the coin, at 5' 7" i struggle  with the hight of my CB750, but back in the day in 1974 i had a new K2 and i don't remember having any issues with the hight of that, so i must have shrunk quite a bit :'(

I recently used Power Strip Heavy Duty Paint Stripper. It's just as good as the old style Nitromors.

I'll second Powerstrip, used it for two restorations, strong stuff.
