Yeah, she's not having the best weather lately, but that is to be expected this time of the year...

A stainless pipe certainly is worth its weight in gold, I had one made for my 1000 well before the millennium changed, at first I thought it was quite expensive, but it turned out to be about the same price as the original Honda header system made of just mild steel! I gave the guy a rotten ori one to copy and still am using the result! Nowadays there are plenty stainless pipes to be found for the cbr1000f, maybe a firm like Delkevic, in the UK, have something for the 750 too, they are quite famous here in Holland....
As for the synchronising, there are only three crossheaded screws, situated between head and carbs, and the hoses connect on top of the carbs, also near the head. If you weren't so far away you could borrow my gauges, but alas....
You balance the carbs in pairs, the left two and the right two, and then sync the pairs, it's really not that hard winkywinky

Where do you suck? Not on the nipples where you would connect the gauges, because that is just an open air connection when the carbs lay on the workbench. Or on the end of the venturi pipe, that normally connects to the cylinderhead? I'd rather not, you'll never get that fuelfree, quite detrimental to your health.
I have been using the same old simple set of vacuŁm gauges (home constructed) for the last 40something years, most bikes only need checking every 5 years or so, when there are no changes on intake or exhaust. Only when while checking valve clearances large changes are detected, but then there are more things to be considered as to the cause of that.

Well done, sounds like you found the culprit, never be afraid to touch anything, just be smart and take pictures of what you do so you'll know how it should go together again.
You'll find the carbs will go on again easier after lubricating the rubber edges on the head (insulators they are usually called) with some oil.
Keep going, and keep us posted :thumbs:

Well then, you're lucky, these bikes are the easiest to get the carbs out you'll find anywhere.
Loosen the 2 bolts holding the airbox to the frame, loosen the 8 clamps holding the carbs, take the fuelhoses off and the carbs are out!

You're right, it was here, I knew the name, to my excuse it was almost exactly 10 years since you were last online here :technik010:
Like i wrote, first try the simple things like spark and fuel, when that still doesn't work a compression test could be useful.
That could make clear if either valves or piston(rings) are the problem. Keep us posted, at least it will keep you busy.....

That funnel is to pick up surplus fuel if you overfill the tank (drain in the drawing), the breather hose slides to a nipple on the bottom of the tank and then connects to the same drain hose further down.

That's probably the tank breather, the other end should match up to a drain hose, see picture

Hi Dan, welcome, I hope you can find the info you're looking for here, we tried to be complete.
Success with rebuilding your bike, do it slow and do it good. Start with the simple things first, put new sparkplugs in and clean the carbs.

Starter relais/solenoids aren't really factory bound, I fixed a friends' Yamaha once with the relay from a lawnmower :zaehne029:

I assume that picture is of your actual contacts?
Looks clean enough, the problem lies usually in dirty contacts, I've also seen rust inside the relay.
I still have the original relays on all my Honda's, all work as they should, even at their advanced age :winknudge:
