    Low compression issue

    I've got a 79 CB750 that's mostly stock except for GSXR carbs, 4 into 1 header, and cbr600 coils. I started having issues with no fire on cylinder 4 after a few rides. The bike ran great for a while but the misfire issue slowly got worse. Spark is good, I'm getting fuel but compression on...

    Mikuni Carb ID

    Is anybody good at identifying old Mikuni carbs? I found a decent deal on Facebook for these but I'd like to have an idea of what they came off of before picking them up.

    DOHC CB750 Oil Leak

    DOHC CB750 Oil Leak

    I recently got my bike (79 CB750) back together and noticed an oil leak coming from cylinder jug. I knew it had a leak before the rebuild but I assumed one of the o-rings that fit around the studs was worn or not sitting correctly. Upon further inspection it looks like the leak is coming...

    New from Little Rock

    I've been using the site for a while now to get my bike going and I figured it was time to join. I bought this 79 CB750 about 3 years ago for $200. It wasn't running when I picked it up. I rebuilt the carbs, fixed some wiring and it fired right up. It's still a work in progress but here a little...
