    CB750 Brat bobber Imitation, CRD Inspired

    To be honest, I got lucky. Bought a good set of carbs of a 93 GSXR750 German spec bike. all i needed to change was to drill out the air pilot jet to 0.5mm. You may need to completely rejet with US spec carbs. Steve

Put the jet in that runs good at WOT and then re jet the pilot jet to get idle / low throttle opening running correctly. Then you you can play with the...

    Pro Builders Running Stock Carbs With Pods - Opinions?

    Agreed but the intention of the modification is too make the carbs work without the stock airbox which is required to enable the cvs in stock form to operate correctly. Stacks or pods each have their ownair flow rather than from a single source airbox. I believe it just blanks of the secondary...

    Pro Builders Running Stock Carbs With Pods - Opinions?

    Not necessarily so. In the last last year or so the Honda RSC tuning manual for the 750/900 DOHC has come back to light in the manual on page eight it tells you what to do to internally to modify the carbs to run with velocity stacks and advise on jetting. This is what honda needed to do to...

    79 cb750 carb floats on a 80

    Also check to see the float actually floats, has no holes in it or filled up with fuel. I'm petty certain the carbs are the same VB52, Floats and valves are different part numbers though, so if you replace for an adjustable float I would change all four and the valves as well. Or get another...

    Borrowed rant

    Would love to be able to write like that. I have the thoughts but my finger typing cant keep up and when I back track the thoughts I had have floated away in the ether, ending up in a muddled mess words.

    What's going on now over at Ichiban Moto ?

    Re: Ichiban Moto : Yamaha 500 cafe racer build Really enjoying these videos. 150 psi should be more than adequate for some sand blasting. Replacing the airbox with a tool box should increase the airflow into the carbs for more power. Keep the updates coming

    Putting CB750K tank on my '80 Custom?

    This may help you decide but I'm pretty sure the frame around the thge engine on a 750 custom is the same as a K, so it should fit. With the front rubber mounts fitted to the tank, the measurement from their center to the center of the rear tank mount is K = 56cm F = 62cm Width at front mount...
