Hello from Manchester UK
« on: September 13, 2020, 12:22:22 pm »
Which oil do you use?...........only kidding.
After using the forum to help with my 1977 CB750K, I thought it only polite to introduce myself. My name is Paul and I am the proud owner of a Harley sportster, a Honda ST1100, a BSA B40 and of course a CB750K7 which I have owned for just over a year with which I am struggling with a severe oil leak of which I will not bore you with now.

Just in the process of rebuilding it following me being engulfed in flames!  I decided to bump start it as I was struggling with the kickstarter,  run it down the street outside our house, dropped the clutch and went to jump on. bike stopped dead, I smacked my shim on the footpeg, bike went to fall over but I saved it ripping my shoulder in the process.  So I thought I'd try it again. bike gave a bit of a cough and I pulled up putside our house. Wife shouts "you're on fire".  The carb had spit back and burned through the fuel hose urinating petrol everywhere.  "Luckily" my neighbour was watering his lawn so I used his hosepipe to put it out.  Wife then points out the obvious and that I am not 21 anymore and I am in fact 61........cheers love.
I love the bike though.  I like the response from blokes of a certain age,  "eeeh I used to 'av one o'them".

Apologies for the photo being upside down.
