Yup. I did a suzuki tank. Just about done. Last is to wet sand and polish the clear. It was painted with the original decals on the tank as they were in excellent condition.View attachment 14330Gears will certainly slip if the clutch cable is adjusted wrong. No free-play, etc. If you don't already have a manual, believe it or not these days you can download one for free. Take a look here: http://manuals.sohc4.net/cb750k/
You'll want the K8 suppliment too, because your bike (and the K7) have some unique areas that may or may not align with the pages that deal with the older years.
Paint. If you end up needing to deal with the Honda decals, there is a decal removal tool, which is available at auto-paint stores (etc). It looks like a big round eraser on a drill arbor. Cost me...$20? One just needs to be careful not to "burn" (rub) through the paint. You want to save the paint as much as you can to serve as your primer base. Going down to bare metal is an epic pain in the kiester if you don't have all the trappings of an auto-painter.
The decal is under the clear-coat, so it will take time to get off. Start at the edge of the decal and work inward. If you've ever used a buffer on your car, etc. you know. Ya just don't hold the thing in one spot too long or you'll go into the paint. Could easily take an hour or more to do. If the base paint itself isn't too damaged and you don't have dents to contend with, you might be able to just remove the decal and save the paint.
The 750 has some dings and rust spots. so it will need a black respray, but I don't plan to strip it down to bare.
Here's the Suzuki I'm about done with.
For the clutch/gear. will open a new thread out of this one when I'm closer.
