    How much "surgical" skill does it take to restore carbs?

    I would suggest purchasing an ultrasonic cleaner. You will be shocked by how much gunk comes out of a single carb in one of them. I got a 2.5 liter one for about $85 dollars at Harbor Freight and it works well. So far I have done 8 carbs with it and all have came out super clean after 4-5 cycles...

    Read a lot on here about these bikes not running properly with pods. The new-to-me 1980 CB750K I acquired had the dreaded pods installed and ran simply awful!

    Throttle won't "return"

    Check the cable routing. I believe that the throttle cable needs to go under the tank on the left side of the steering stem(sounds crazy) and then thru the hole in the frame for it to operate properly. At least that was what was causing mine to stick???

    What is the best header paint?

    My newly acquired 1980 CB750K has a mac 4 into 1 header that needs work. Previous owner has repacked the muffler but the paint is missing in action. Just wondering what brand of high temp paint I should use on it. Anyone have a favorite? I've used VHT in the past on engines with good results.
