Prerty sure you can also run tubeless or tube tires on the comstars, as opposed to just tube tires on the spokes.  Nice perk if you're into that
Half the fun's in the get there...

I haven't made much progress last few weeks with the teardown. I'm a corporate pilot and I've been on the road a lot recently. I did manage to tear down the carb and rig up a Figi water bottle fuel tank and got her running. I didn't try to ride it yet because it feels like the old ass oil has glued the clutch plates together. When I try to push it by hand in gear with the clutch pulled in, its nearly impossible to get it rolling unless I pop it in 4th or 5th to give me more mechanical leverage. I plan on doing a complete teardown and refresh. Ill be home Wednesday and should have time to get more pics and a video if it running.

Coyote13 this bike is not going to be a daily or longhaul bike. I have a sport touring bike for that. This ones all about style and all the pains in the ass that come with it. Thanks for the input though. That's what I'm here for; input, critiques, guidance, tips and trick. I'll be the first to admit I don't know what I don't know. Old bikes are new to me.

Maybe I didnít put the original post in the right spot. Iím getting views but no replies. Maybe one of you guys had some input. Here is copy of the original post.

ďQuick question. I bought a 79 CB750L and it all appears stock however I think the previous owner may have replaced a few soft parts on the carbs (keihin vb42a)

I canít find any really good pictures of the accelerator pump rod in an idle position on line to compare. When the throttle is completely closed, the actuating plate that is part of the throttle linkage assembly is about 4mm from the end of the pump rod. This is my first time messing with these style carbs but Iíd imagine they are supposed to always be touching each other so any time the throttle is applied, the rod is immediately pressed down actuating the pump.

The way is sits now no matter how far I open the throttle, it never touches the rod and I donít see any adjustment to bring the actuator plate closer. Iím guessing that maybe the previous owner bought the wrong pump and the rod is too short.Ē

Well itís glaringly obvious now that Iíve figured it out. The previous owner replaced the pump with a new one and he installed the dust protecting bellows on the shaft inside the housing. It was so compressed that I just figured it was a bumper. It finally hit me looking at kits online that all the pictures had a bare metal disc with no such bumper. Duh!!!
