Well the 98 jets seem to be the ones! Running like a top. Starts easily, idles great, revs don’t hang, pulls strong and linear all the way through, and doesn’t pop on decel.

Seat pan is done now it’s time to cover it and move on to the tank.

I'd clear coat that tank and leave it as is. 

AND it sounds great.

How clean is the inside of that tank? 

Does it hold gas?

It looks brand new inside and it holds gas without leaks. This tank came off an 81K, same as the wheels. The tank that came with my bike  had dime sized rust holes so I had to find something else’s. I still really want to find a CB650 tank from the same year.

Working on the seat now. Not perfect but not too bad for never using a sewing machine in my life.
