1982 CB750F... The resto-not
« Reply #540 on: Apr 29, 2019, 14:16:30 »
I was tempted to open those and fondle them before I sent them but resisted. ;D

You've got more resolve than me mate.  I'd've had them out the box lickety-split  ;D

Thanks again Mike - I'll keep you posted.  From what I've read these things really are pretty decent, especially for the money.  The build quality looks excellent, but it's about how the rubber meets the road yada yada.  Until then, I'm fondling.

Thanks, a first hand report is worth a lot. After riding the Big GS BMW on vacation Jill's been asking if I can get better suspension for the GL LOL

Those at 199.99 US is about top of my budget. I want Hagons but they are like 500 or so and that's almost half the value of the bike.

You and me both.  I bought Progressive Series 12 shocks for my last CB at around $350 US, thought I'd change things up a bit this time.  Once they're installed and I've figured out how to get the best out of them adjustment-wise it'll be interesting to see how they compare.  Plus there's a guy here on DTT who rebuilds them to a higher quality spec as well for a very reasonable price - a good option too.

And, did I mention they're pretty?  ;)

Need to get some braided steel brake lines ordered.  Dime City sells custom lengths of Galfer which would fit the bill, anyone know of any good cheaper options?  I'm at about $200 with DCC for the front (two calipers) and rear, that's for the lines and banjos.

HEL is where I always order my hydraulic brake lines.   Excellent quality and fit.

I ordered Russell brake line and fittings from Summit Racing and made my own on the 360. Cost me around $35-40 for a 27" front brake line with fittings and banjo bolts.

Instead of banjo bolts, I run 3AN fittings in the calipers and MC, then measure the right length and find a Russell or Earls line to match.  They come in most lengths in inch increments.

Great, cheers.  All good info, Summit Racing seems to have a pretty good selection.  If I end up making these things myself, would it simply be a matter of choosing the right length line and banjos?  Do the banjos simply screw in to the 3AN female threads on the end of the brake line?

I'm looking at something like this for the line -

and this for the banjo -

That's it, that's all?

Pretty much. You can either get the -3AN to banjo fittings or -3AN to 3AN that screw directly into the caliper/MC without using banjos and crush washers. Totally up to you. I like to use a banjo at the MC and the 3AN at the caliper, but thats just personal preference. They also make the fittings in various angles for different setups.
