Desperately Seeking!! / Re: 750 Seat and Side Panel
« on: February 05, 2020, 10:13:00 AM »
Phil - I may be able to help with a suitable seat...may need a couple of days to have a look.

Hi James, did you get chance to have a look for a seat?
Many thanks,
Phil.
Hi Phil. Just got back from France yesterday. Had a look in the workshop this evening and to be honest the only decent seat I have left is a NOS Honda K3-K6 seat that I’ve been holding back for a project. If I come across something more suitable in the next few days I’ll let you know.

OK.  Thank you.
Phil.

Finding the correct colour K5 panel in this country when they were not imported is asking a bit

Yes you're probably right but you never know...i need to post on the .net site i think.. ;)

Desperately Seeking!! / 750 Seat and Side Panel
« on: January 25, 2020, 11:21:25 AM »
Hi, can anyone help me out.
Nearly finished the light restoration / clean up of my bike. (leaving the paint as it is for now)
I'm after a good(ish) original seat or well used repro -I want to avoid it looking brand new if possible.
Also original left side panel - 1975 K5 (apricot red i think)
Long shot i know...but...
Many thanks
Phil

Misc / Open / Filling in V55/5
« on: June 19, 2019, 09:08:05 PM »
Hi I Recently (6 months ago) posted this on another forum.....may be useful info for someone.
Cheers
Phil


This is how i filled in my V55/5 and was successful so must be somewhere near. I'm certainly no expert at this, i've done it a couple of times using info gleaned off various classic bike/car sites and forums.
Also, these answers will only apply to a bike that is over forty years old, applying for first registration in the UK and with no original (non UK) documents.
You will need the NOVA cert and a dating letter.
Make sure you use the latest issue v55.........currently 8/18 (top r/h/s)

Firstly, in the box in the top right hand side of page one, state the country that the bike was purchased from. I stated the country it had come from even though i purchased it from a UK dealer.
Second, tick the RHD box underneath.

You only need to answer the following questions:

Q2...."Historic"
Q4....Tick the Registration fee box.
Q6...."Yamaha" / "Honda" or whatever.
Q7...."XT500" / "CB750" or whatever.
Q8...."Motorcycle."
Q9...."2 Wheel".
Q10...Main colour of bike.
Q11... "Exempt".
Q18..."2".
Q27..."19XX".
Q31..."Petrol."
Q32...Full frame number.
Q33...Full engine number.
Q34...Engine cc.
Q57...First half of your postcode.
Q62...Fill in your details.
Q63...Your date of birth.
Q64..."Pre-dates type approval"
Q65.. The mileage.

SIGN and DATE the form.

My covering letter / note was worded:

Please find enclosed completed V55/5.
I have enclosed a Dating Letter from .......... because the original non UK registration documents were unavailable.
I have listed Tax Class as historic because the motorcycle is over 40 years old (Manuf. 19XX).
For the same reason i understand that an MOT certificate is not required.
I also understand that i no longer need to enclose my insurance certificate.
Many Thanks.
Contact Details. Tel..... Mobile..... Email......

Make sure you send...Completed V55, Covering letter, Dating letter, NOVA certificate, Photocopy of your photocard driving licence and a cheque for £55.

Hope this helps
Phil

CB750 / Re: Fuel tap o-ring
« on: June 17, 2019, 08:49:58 PM »
Just had a look at the drawing for the K5 (should have mentioned the model) and matches what I've got. Shows the o-ring behind the tap lever.

Definitely an o-ring...on this one at least😊 sits on the back of the lever behind the front plate..will take it apart again and measure. It's seeping fuel from the front of the tap.
Cheers

Hi, does anyone know the size of the o-ring that seals the lever on this type of tap... or a link to an eBay item?
Many thanks

CB750 / Re: pilot screw advice
« on: June 13, 2019, 12:08:36 PM »
I always assumed that if the screw was on the filter side of the slide then you screwed in to richen and out to make leaner.
However seem to remember reading on here or somewhere else that the opposite is true if these types of screw (1st picture in op) are fitted..ie with holes in....Did I dream this.????
Cheers

CB750 / pilot screw advice
« on: June 12, 2019, 09:41:29 PM »
Hi, just in the final stages of fine tuning my carbs, could someone please confirm which way I need to adjust to richen / lean up.
I've read some richen when screwed in and some when screwed out.
The bike is a 750K5. I've attached some photos to help identify.
Many thanks
Phil
