Still £55 first reg fee. But yes, no insurance required. Has been that way for 18 months or so now. James

Dave - feel free to call me and I can walk you through the paperwork one evening. V112 yes just put in your VIN where it says registration number. The bike doesn’t need to be insured either to register. Email Ray Davis @VJMC with dating application with photos from 4 angles and of ViN/ Engine number . Simples.

Best thing to do Keith is call the DVLA and get some advice directly - they can be really helpful. Ideally you need to get the bike on the NOVA database which will
Then allow you to apply for a V5 and get an age related plate..

Fantastic progress Dave.

You can use form V112 to register as MOT exempt (so you don’t need an MOT to register her).

The DVLA will want the original US title for dating purposes. They won’t accept a photo of the VIN tag.

If no title, VJMC dating letter will work, with a covering letter explaining why you don’t have the original title.

Green 550 K1 now sold.

Brown 500/4 has some electrical issues that need resolution prior to sale.

CB750 / Oil tank removal / cleaning
« on: January 15, 2019, 11:27:55 PM »
Hi guys
Have just changed the oil and filter on the k6 and just before I filled the oil tank I thought I'd have a look inside. There is around 6 mm of thick sludge in the bottom. None of this came out with the old oil so would have gone unnoticed had I not peeked in the actual tank. I proceeded to try and remove the tank until I noted a further feed / braided pipe at the rear which I could not get to ( obviously a feed and return pipe set up) So I re installed the tank and went ahead and filled it, with a view to doing another day.
I went on line and the only reference I could find with regard to its removal was to 'take the engine out' which appears a little drastic.
Has anyone removed it without too much of a strip down for a clean. Has anyone had any issues with the sludge - guess what I am asking is should I ensure its clean before I run it again. I'm sure this sludge has been in the tank for a while and it does not seem to have caused any issues to date , but thought I should get a second opinion on the matter ?
Regards
Paul
Paul - Give me a call tomorrow and I’ll talk you through this. Have this diagram in front of you as well.

But, in short, the tank can be removed and cleaned without removing the engine. It’s fiddly, but can be done...

Dave, if you want I can properly scan the wiring diagram at work tomorrow and send it to you as an A3 PDF to print out if that helps?

In terms of riding - i’ve ridden the red bike before pulling the tank off (have a red paint set from Menno here and done - but want to deep clean the bike first). It was a hoot to ride - you’ll love it.

But, I’m 6’3” and 16 stone (big boned) so I probably looked like a fat bird riding a kids bike

On my red bike, there’s a green wire going to the loom (in addition to the main earth cable).

I think it’s the same on the blue bike.

Wiring diagram suggests the same.

Hope that helps..

Dave,

I did manage to get to the bikes earlier this week - but the light in my storage unit is crap and to be honest it’s going to require me to tear into one of the bikes to trace back wiring and see where they go. At the moment I can’t really spend a load of time tearing into either bike.

But, I did snap pics of both in the battery area - do you have an owners manual??

I’ve photographed the wiring diagram from mine here..happy to email you a high res. picture...

James
