    1995 Rear Brake Pedal replacement

    Hello all, I have done a little searching, but as of yet, I obviously haven't found the info I was looking for. I am a new rider, and make a mistake while changing the oil. Needless to say, I dropped the bike, and bent the rear brake pedal. It's still operable, but the pad is angled at an...

    Master Cylinder

    I am trying to get the master cylinder reservoir off the base. It is the plastic one with the 4 screws to hold it in place. I removed the 4 screws and tried to pull it out. It will rotate quite freely but it refuses to come out. It looks like there is two rubber "O" rings or seals that is...

    Help with front caliper

    Just purchased a 1977 CB750k. It's in pretty good condition other than the fact it has been sitting man years. I've got it running pretty well but the front brake was not functional. Rather than chase the problem down part by part i replaced everything from the master to the hoses to the...

    1979 CB750F front and rear calipers

    Does anyone know if any other model calipers will work with existing mounting holes on front forks? or existing caliper brackets? like perhaps the 900C from the 1982?

    Rear master cylinder

    Hi all! I have a 1972 Rickman. I’m the second owner. When I got the bike a few months back, both the front and rear brakes did not work. In fact, they were both dry as the bike had sat for about 7 years. I rebuilt the front master, and cleaned the calipers. The front now works as it should. I...

    73 CB750 caliper MC help!!

    Rebuilding the MC as it was original. Ordered a rebuild kit. Then a second one because I thought I made a mistake. Both came in with a smaller diameter kit than what is on the bike. Plunger was about 1MM smaller. Could this be because the MC came from an older model and used anyway at the...

    Front Brake Lever Piston / New Brake Lines

    I'm getting closer to to road ready on a '82 CB750 Custom. The previous owner had let the bike sit, but his brother installed a new plastic brake reservoir on the brake lever and gave me all new front brake lines (all the way down to the calipers).

    1982 F2C brake rotor upgrades

    So I'm looking to do a few upgrades to the brakes on my F2C. The current rotors have seen better days (as you would expect for an 30+ year old chunk of metal) and rather than just opting for some OEM replacements that will also be used, i was wondering - does anyone have any...

    Recommend a brake disc drilling service?

    Considering having all three rotors on my 81 750F drilled and want to see if there is a recommended machinist/shop that performs this service. I did a minor build on a 900F in the late '80's and sent the rotors out for drilling and really enjoyed the looks and performance. I recall back then it...

    Front brake pads make scraping sound

    This is a 1980 750C. I removed my front wheel in order to take off the fender so I could paint it. When I removed the front wheel, I did not remove the brake unit as I just needed enough clearance so I could get my wrench on the fender bolts. I just removed the axle holders. After putting...

    1980 CB750F Brake parts

    Hi all, I just acquired a handsome 1980 CB750F. The rear brake was seized which I had assumed was the piston. Turns out the piston is fine and I'm ready to rebuild with just new seals; easily obtained. What is of concern is that it was missing the brake pad shim and brake pad spring. Both of...
