That's my plan exactly! I got tired of the CV carbs real quick. Have you had a chance to ride with them yet?enterlance said:Go for the CR carbs! I have a 80 CB750F and just bought CR31 from Japan as a Christmas gift for myself. Took them a month to ship and $720+shipping, but man does it look beautiful.
Thanks man. Unlike some I love the bottom line of the tank on the DOHCs, so I want to show it off instead of try and hide it. The front is moved forward and down about an inch, with the rear raised about 1.5". I think if I can get the bottom curve to flow into the frame rail coming down it'll tie everything together pretty wellThe Jimbonaut said:I know nothing about modifying frame geometry, but if you can keep that tank position on the frame how it looks in that second photo then you're right on the money man. Love the lines - like you say, drop the seat rails an inch or two and you're in business.
Oh it's way too tall in the second picture. I was just using it as a "close one eye and stand way over there" mockup than anything concrete. Just to get the general idea.teazer said:Measure the seat height above the table and then from seat height to footpegs to get an idea of how much it has to come down. Allow for seat pad etc of course. At the moment it appears to be about 4 inches too tall, but that could be an optical illusion.
Currently just assembling my bike. I would let you know how do they do once I got a chance. I bought 4 velocity stack filters instead of pod filters to keep the unfiltered raw racing look.jordandogtown said:That's my plan exactly! I got tired of the CV carbs real quick.

Thanks for the heads up, I hadn't really shopped around much yet.VintageMBike said:BTW dont get your CR carbs from DCC, get them from Dynomat. They jet them as best they can to your setup, and they are about $200 cheaper.
Yeah.jordandogtown said:Thanks for the heads up, I hadn't really shopped around much yet.
Do they come with the same plastic velocity stacks that are included from DCC? Ready to bolt on (other than any jetting changes)?
