    Dual disc conversion for 1982 cb750k dohc

    Sooo, I've got a 82 cb750k with the single disc brake front suspension and I'm incredibly dissatisfied with my front brake setup. I know this topic has been covered before but I can't find swap details for 79s-83s. Mostly only finding SOHC swap threads. I'm looking at either the GL1000 or...

    Ultra dumb question about lowering springs/ shocks

    Thanks for the reply man. The Cycle X progressive springs description says that they pair with the shorty shocks that they sell. Their shorty's are 11.3" which is 2" or more shorter than the factory shocks. So, to me, this implies that the springs also lower the front but I don't understand...

    Ultra dumb question about lowering springs/ shocks

    I've heard this too but just like you, I don't understand how it works. If you install shorter springs but compensate with a spacer that takes up the same distance you removed, how the hell is it lowering anything.

    Hard starting with new exhaust install

    1982 CB750K I was finally able to buy the Delkavic 4 into 1 exhaust and install it on the bike this weekend. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of weight savings I gained by removing the factory 4 into 4. Factory Senkei 4 into 4- 46.9 lbs Delkavic 4 into 1- 13.5 lbs Total weight...

    Ultra dumb question about lowering springs/ shocks

    Bump. Anybody got anything? The maiden ride of my bike is coming up in less than 2 weeks (waiting on a seat to arrive) and I want to be sure it's safe to ride.

    I made a silly mistake.

    Considering the factory metal type seem to be a special order thing, this helps tremendously. Cheers brother. 🤝

    I made a silly mistake.

    I blew mine last night chasing neutral/ oil power/ ground issues. Did you just crimp ring terminals to the ends and attach at the screw posts?

    Ultra dumb question about lowering springs/ shocks

    So... I've got an '82 CB750K. I bought the Cycle X progressive front fork springs kit. If I install the new spring/ washer/ spacer/ fork cap without cutting the top spacer down at all, am I even lowering the front at all? I installed 13.0" eye to clevis rear shocks and I'm trying to determine...

    Help identifying clubmans

    These don't strike me as the regular ol amazon specials. The horizontal bar mount dimensions look much shorter.

    Help identifying clubmans

    I'm sure some of you have seen the YouTube video that this screen shot is from and I'm hoping someone can identify either who makes these clubmans or point me in the direction of finding a set that wraps around the center of the forks like this. I really like how they aren't too wide and just...

    Rear shock lower mount fastener

    While continuing the post buy inspections on my bike (cb750k '82), I noticed that the lower shock mount bolt appeared to be a tad bit bent. I decided to remove it to see just how bent it was and discovered that not only did it have a slight bend, but it's also just an all thread bolt. Some of...

    Cycle X fork tube springs

    I'm super grateful for this information. Thank you so very much. When installing the spring into the fork tube, should the tighter end of the progressive spring go up or down?

    Cycle X fork tube springs

    Dude, you're the man. Thank you for answering my question. My heads been spinning over this damn spring swap for a few days. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I should be able to just center stand the bike, prop up the front for full fork extension and a little more off the ground, unscrew...

    Cycle X fork tube springs

    Does anyone have clear instructions on how to install the shorter progressive fork springs from cycle x? I've watched a ton of videos and I'm very confused as to what order things go in. Spacer first? Then washer? Then spring? Or spring first, washer, and then spacer?

    Upper rear shock mount question

    While removing the rear shocks on my 82 750K, I noticed that the welded on bung and stud mount is different thicknesses on the left and right side. Has anyone ever seen this or know anything about it? Is this from the factory or is this some backyard shade tree special?

    Anyone ever swapped out the gas tank on 82 750K?

    That EXACTLY. At first I didn't notice the black paint masking the downturn shape of the tank, but yeah man, that seat is PERFECT.

    82 cb750c build plan and questions.

    That bitch is CLEAN. I'll be following your build. I just picked up an 82 750K. Feel free to hit me up for anything during your build. I'm only 2 weeks into mine so far.

    Anyone ever swapped out the gas tank on 82 750K?

    Correct. I don't like that. I'd rather the seat be flat and not following the conture of the tank. As in, I'd rather there be a gap.

    1982 CB750K Brat/ Cafe Build

    Well, I think I've decided to start a build thread for my bike after getting a little more engagement on this forum than I expected. I've only posted here once so far and have commented on someone else's very in depth build here on this forum, so I'll catch you up to speed in this new thread...

    Anyone ever swapped out the gas tank on 82 750K?

    Is the C tank a direct bolt on replacement? I really like the shape of it. As far as comfortability, what sort of setup do you have with those tanks? Rearsets? Aftermarket handle bars? I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I just installed some clip on handlebars to bring the handles back towards...

    I was under the understanding that I've got a "K" tank. Can you explain more?
