    Engine rattle

    72 cb750K My mechanic has rebuilt and sync-ed the carbs and replaced the manual tensioner. He says he’s still concerned with the engine noise. Sounds like much of the noise is from the clutch basket. Perhaps he’s hearing something different in person than I am getting from the video. My...

    Wiring harness. Can I do it myself?

    I've always been nervous about the idea of digging into electrical, but the mess of wires behind my headlamp needs some tending to. I think a different year wiring harness was used when the wires were last touched, so I have wires in colors that no way match the wiring diagrams, wires that go...

    Electrical woes

    My bike (cb750) had been working fine and I decided to clean up the wiring. Added an LED headlamp and noticed that high/low beam function was swapped. Went to start it up and the bike lit up for a second but then the neutral light in the display dimmed and became very faint as if the battery was...

    Very slight tank leak.

    So for years I've had a minor tank leak that's almost unnoticeable. Gas will gather on the bottom lip that holds the chrome moulding (left side). It's very minor but it does cause the moulding to become unglued and eventually it falls off. I can't tell where it originates. The tank seems to be...

    Broken Part - Broken Heart

    I have brand new CB750 kill/starter switch I've been fussing with to get it to fit. I've had to grind an area for the clearance of the wires since the original bike had the wire going through the handlebar tube. I've been taking off millimetre by millimetre to get it just right. It was almost...

    How do I unplug the ignition key from the wiring harness.

    I think my ignition might be the cause of my loss of electrical. How do I go about unplugging the key from the wiring harness. That brown cylindrical connector doesn't seem to want to come off despite all the wiggling. I'm afraid to force it too much as I don't want to do any damage. Or should...

    No electricity. Need help.

    I officially can't figure out why I'm not getting power. No lights. No anything. The battery is holding charge and the main fuse seems fine. Any electronics guys out there want to make some dough and help me get back on the road. Drop me a line. Downtown Toronto preferably. Thanks. J 72 cb750 k2

    Where to find wiring harness for 72 cb750

    Had a short that fried my wiring harness. I can't seem to find one for my bike. Everywhere I look stocks them for the 69-71 version or the 73-78 version. Sadly I need one for a 1972 and apparently it's different that the other two models of wiring harness. Anybody know where to find this part?
