    CB750K2 - My New Bike

    Well this took alot longer than expected.

    Here's a picture of the ol'girl all shiny and new.





    Got a bit of an issue balancing the carby, so if anyone has any tips on this or would like to show me over a beer, would greatly appreciate any advice anyone has on this model.

    Very nice. I used to synchronize carbies using a long fuel hose, like a stethoscope, you put one end near you ear and the other end near the intake, listen to each one and adjust until they all have the same sound.

    Good to see you're still with us and in one piece.
    Why is this a project bike? Besides the carbs, I don't see anything to do on this bike. IT IS MINT! Even the paint looks brand new. Or is this the after pic?
    If you love your motorcycle, set it free. If it comes back, you probably high-sided.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the comments

    This bike has quite a bit of history

    It's been one only owner. This is the after picture SilentBob and was a 5 year rebuild which actually belonged to my father - inwhich I'm now the owner

    Theres a few things that need to be added/changed but as potato mentioned it's quite a good coffee table

    Need to get a new battery, balance the carbs and then it should be good to go. Will hopefully have this done over the weekend, and I'll be able to take it for a putt around town.

    Will be good to slowdown a bit =)

    835 new notifications, surely not ?

    ANyways, I still can't get this thing running right.

    I think the air intake is too much as I changed the old fuel box to pod filters...who knows.

    Does it run on idle?

    When you rev it out does it cough or does it bog down.

    Have you upped the jets at all since putting on the pods?

    What colour are the inside of your exhaust brown or black?

    I'll see if I can find a good carbie tune guide I used.

    If you think it's lean jetted..breathing too freely....
    Just tape up the pod filter gauze ...say. Leave 25% of filter paper open to air. To start with. ( reduces air flow/richens mixture) easy jetting check, brah...
    Yeh WTS.... Noice..:-)
