    Yes.

    If you think you can get seal out without yanking cover fine but a lot of butchery begins that way. I'd look at the seal. Honda sometimes makes one part of the OD bigger to either go in a...

    Compression check to make sure you are not wasting your time, no rev up high means valves may be burned and how most of them die. Nobody ever sets the valves and they close up to burn. They come off...

    Yep...........'79 speedo. I bought one to contrast with my '80 tach on mine too. Something just seemed silly about the 85 mph speedo being buried halfway through 4th gear.

    Only by riding it will you recover enough. The big bux only go for all original. And highly likely the person buying it from you will resell for higher after you. The guy doing the work always gets...

    EXACT compression numbers figure big there, they can have 'compression' and still be junk. I won't buy one myself without a test on the spot. If you are in a hot state then the tensioners will be...

    I have no idea but I'd bet there is a detent that has to be pressed down to come loose like almost anything now that looks like it won't come off.

    Oil level is not something to ask question about, it's something you fix.

    Hydraulic lifters in that one, dirty oil can do it.

    FYI, the centerstand can still be used as a tool temporarily installed to get say front wheel off the ground but you MUST at least reinstall the bolts that clamp the centerstand to hold the pin in...

    Craziest thing I've ever heard.

    'i could start it without the clutch assembly fitted and find out.'

    Please don't, you will have several major oil leaks with low pressure, you could damage bearings. Clutch parts seal them up.

    Probably bottom of ignition switch meaning it has come apart, or something out of one of the handlebar switches.

    Don't know what to say, did the exact same on my 550 which is virtually the same parts design and it worked fine every time I did it. Rebuilt those forks myself too. I could lock the front wheel hard...

    People made a few stud sets back in the day but no more, all race parts for the early DOHC have pretty much disappeared. The popularity never got as high as the SOHC and they broke when raced too...

    Yes, any tire old enough to carry the older marking will likely be too old and hard to use. Rubber degases over time to lose volatile component that keeps the rubber more flexible. It does it even...

    FYI, some of your 'clearance' there is mandatory, you have to have it to let the inner clutch hub spin freely from the outer basket or the clutch refuses to work right. I'd look for at least .015"...

    Fine, just wondering if a different part was subbed there.

    Absolute death if you removed the rubbers completely. Likely the same but a little slower if you simply bolt solid (rivets only removed)...

    Remarkable story.

    I used to keep a brand new '80 750F in my apartment for a while as theft of vehicles was bad in that complex.
