Doing the happy dance! Valve clearances checked? The experts recommend .004 - .006". I've put ~140 miles on my 750F, and it is still static-timed, but I plan to re-check the valve clearance to see if they have changed. Gosh, those new isolators look nice!

On to the rest of the wiring for the M-unit blue. I made a small aluminum bracket to mount the m-unit and I need to figure out where Iím going to mount the grounding block. Running the input and output wires then Iíll clean it up into another harness and add waterproof connectors on each end so I can unplug the harness if needed later. Just got the Motone buttons in today and I like them. Quality is just as good as the Motogadget buttons but cheaper (not cheap though). Trying to figure out the best length throttle cables for my lower controls with the clubman bars.

Looking like progress. On the stock throttle cables, they are routed on the LEFT side of the headstock, and over the TOP of the tank rubber receivers.

Yeah the stock cables are run that way but with the clubman bars they are too long and stick out the front of the bike. I ordered a new throttle to get rid of the stock buttons and also bought cables for an earlier year CB750 since they are shorter. Iíll see if it works when they come in next week 🤞🏼

The stock cables tun that way to allow the forks to turn without interference, and without changing the throttle operation. Also to prevent pinching or too-tight bends going over the top of the motor and through the tank tunnel. But whatever, make it pretty I guess.
