CB750 / Not A Clue

This guy hasn't a clue what he's talking about, even so it's nice to see.

CB750 / Best Rims
« on: August 01, 2019, 01:59:20 PM »
The chrome on the rear wheel rim of my 750 K1 has worn down to dull metal, i guess through enthusiastic polishing over 50 years. What is the best new rim and stainless spokes to buy, or should i rechrome the original DID rim?

CB750 / Oil Pressure Switch
« on: July 29, 2019, 04:33:02 PM »
Your input would be appreciated with my problem. Before starting my 750 K1 from cold, the oil light is not illuminating, but when it is warmed up after a run the light works normally, i.e. switch the engine off with the kill switch and the light comes on, start it up again and the light goes out immediately. With the engine cold and ignition on, i can take the cable off the pressure switch and touch it to earth and the light will illuminate, so it looks like the switch is faulty.
  My question is can the switch be dissmantled and fixed, at the moment finances are a bit tight.

Misc / Open / A Golden Age

I love this video of a better time, this is how i had to ride during my motorcycle test in 1964, no indicators on bikes back then (unless you rode a Ariel Leader or Honda Benly) and no traffic, no traffic camera's, no yellow lines, truly a golden time, wish i had a time machine!

CB750 / Easy engine install

How about this for a simple method to get your engine back in the frame on your own !! I expect you could get it out the same way.

CB750 / Shell Helix oil

Does anybody use Shell Helix HX7 10/40w semi synthetic oil in their 750, any reason not to use it?

CB750 / £250,000

Does this guy know what he's talking about, in a few years a sandcast will be worth a quarter of a million pounds, blimey!!, so on a pro rata basis my K1 will be worth up to a 100 grand, i didn't know that they are fragile,   

CB750 / Bouncy Forks
« on: August 21, 2018, 05:14:32 PM »
I've no doubt that this has been asked many times before, so i apologize in advance for asking. My 71 K1 750 has a horrible ride on the front end, the forks follow every large or small undulations in the road, only hitting a pothole do i get any fork action.
  When moving the forks up and down on standstill they seem to work fine, it's putting me off going out for a ride. :'( :'(

CB750 / Oil at Tappet Covers
« on: August 03, 2018, 12:35:57 PM »
The last time i had a cb750 was back in 1976 with a new K6, with a new bike i didn't worry about things like, is the oil circulating correctly, are the oil jets clear, but on reading some of the posts on this forum, it's now got me thinking about my bike, a 1971 K1 with 14000 miles on the clock, judging by the unrestored condition of the bike it could be genuine.
   So this morning i took the front tappet covers off and started the bike from cold, it took a couple of minutes for oil to appear, i was expecting oil immediately, is this normal ?

CB750 / Running On Two Cylinders
« on: August 02, 2018, 06:50:56 PM »
I recently rebuilt the carbs on the K1 including setting the float hights, but couldn't run the bike untill the exhaust fiasco with David Silver was sorted out. Now after fitting a new set from CMS which fitted great, i took it for a ride, ten minutes into the ride it started to misfire running on two cylinders, managed to get it back home which was not easy in hilly Wales. Touching the silencers revealed that it was only running on 1 & 2, while rebuilding the carbs i replaced the fuel pipes from carbs to petrol tap as the old pipes were crumbling at the tap ends and leaking. The new pipes i got off ebay which were 5mm bore thin walled. What i discovered was one pipe feeding cylinders 3 & 4 had kinked on the bend close to the tap stopping the flow. 
  So i can't rely on this fuel pipe from ebay. where do you guys and gals  get your fuel line from, and would you use 5mm or 6mm.

CB750 / BLING !!

They certainly like to bling up their Honda's in Japan, and themselves, look at the guy in white.

CB750 / CMS Exhaust Set
« on: July 25, 2018, 12:24:43 PM »
Has anybody fitted a set of silencers from CMS Netherlands to their cb750, if so how well did they fit ?

CB750 / Tank Badges

So is this how it's done, or is there a better method.
