1974 CB450 K7 - First Project, couple of queries...
« on: Apr 09, 2017, 05:05:57 »
Hey guys,
Ive been working on that project for a bit over a year now. Now Im almost there. Most of it is fine -  -

-completely new electrics based on Motogadget
-new electronic tray welded
-cut and cleaned the frame, new loop
-fabricated a seat pan, upholstered as well
-new carbies, Mikuni VM32s
-painted the engine
-redid the tank, cleaned the inside and spay-can painted the outside
- etc...

So, Im really happy with the result so far and all I need now is a few tips from you guys. So here it comes:

-I dont have a constant fuel flow from the petcock to the mikunis. I fitted some fuel filters but the angle from the petcock to the carbies probably isnt steep enough. Since it's a gravity fed system, I need a solution. Maybe remove the filters and try with fuel lines only?

-Seat: Im from Bondi, does anybody know a good upholstery guy in Sydney?

-Since it's an imported bike from the states, I need to get a blueslip first. Any idea where to do it so I dont hit and miss? Afraid it would break me ;-)

That's it for now... Im really looking forward to your answers.

Cheers,
Martin

Get rid of the filters and just use the one in the tank
