Perfect timing. I was just thinking I need to rebuild the carbs on my CB750. This should help me out.

Say it brotha Rekoniz! I was staring at my manual this weekend thinking, "I am going to so fuck this up" I guess I just hit up nunya with all the pieces once that happens.

Where is a good place to get the rebuild kit for these old CBs?

I got mine from ebay a couple years ago. About $25/each or about $60 for a complete set. Depending on the year of your 750 (pre-'77), your's may use the same as my CB5.

Mines an 82 CB750f. I was looking at Old Bike Barn to get their rebuild kit. I will check e-bay.

Great find remember to use cleaner safe for motorcycle carbs (coated surfaces).
