looks like you're going to make some super sweet 550F covers!

and I'm almost certain that K's and F's are different.

What year CB550F is the hottest? I found a set for a 75. Is that cool for everyone?

If I am not mistaken, 74 - 78 F covers are all the same.

FLOAT BOWLS!!!  FLOAT BOWLS!!!  FLOAT BOWLS!!!

We want 'em!  I'd prefer the PD style (77 & 78) but I know I am probably outnumbered by the earlier style guys.

Make 'em happen, Frankenstuff, and we will buy them!  I've bought from you before, so you know I'm good for it!
