Not really Nigel , cost me £600 and £200 to put right so sold it for £800 , they are a strange bike with the Hydraulic tappets , oil system ( which runs round the frame to the oil cooler) and Shock suspension, so wanted to get to grips with one , wont be doing another ever again:rolleyes:(y)

Bill, another amazing job (y) Very cool bike as well, no 750 CBX for us here stateside, so it was interesting to see. Reminded me of my buddy's 650 SC Nighthawk I did 2 years ago.

great progress Bill
@MrPickwick got a small question :) I'm talking about this picture. as we see you have separated the 4 carb bodies. when you reassembled them, did you use new Orings for those connecting tubes/cylinders or can we use the old Orings without a problem ? thank you :)

Hi Sam , because I went to that extent, even though some of the O rings were alright I got a complete set of new rings and jets ,needle's etc, save's any heartache when putting it together, was a good choice as once the valves were lapped , new valve seals and timing done , it ran like a good'un :giggle:(y)

Yep fully agree.

I understand that not everyone has good financial resources, but where and when possible, it's always best to replace components - especially perishables - when working through a teardown of any type.

I mean, if one goes to the dentist for dental work, the dentist is hardly going to remove a tooth, repair and replenish, and then refit the same one!! :)
