There wont be much in it engine performance wise Rob, that CBR was very quick, if anything its the age of the suspension and brakes that will let the CBR down, that said i only really noticed it with a pillion.

Hi Kevin, the fairing repair looks really good. VFR is going well, not got out as much this winter with the ice but managing one or two rides a week now.
Curious about your choice of colour for the wheels. If your looking for original im sure they were a dark metallic blue?

Kevin, if you do end up going down the 4:1 route have a look at Sandybikespares. They do a stainless 4:1 for cbr750 .

Could be wrong but i dont think they are easy to recondition if at all. I got one off ebay you can pick them up for £40-60 and its quite a straight forward job. New you can get a Hagon monoshock for about £300.

And lots of evil SALT so I've not been out. Mines covered in condensation in the shed!

Whats peoples opinions about bike covers? Like James my bike attracts condensation in the garage at this time of year. So would a cover reduce it or trap it and make things worse?

The shock you have posted above is exactly like the one i took off my cbr when the seals went. I didn't know there was a valve under the small black cover. I would be confident its original. Its placement doesnt lend itself to easy adjustment whilst fitted to the bike though.

Nah cant see me being a pro diver not too interested in all that extreme depth with trimix and long decompression stops. That said like most things the more you do the more the parameters change!!
Bet theres some good diving in NZ i have family out there and the plan is to come over for a while sometime in the next 2/3 years.

No, im getting dry suit qualified so can dive in the cold.
Its probably best to use drysuit most of the year in our cold northern waters.

Im fairly confident the bikes colour scheme is original, if you google "cbr750 pictures" you'll find one like it and its very honda. Its a bit of a mongrel in some respects its an fh going off the indicators but has the fj floating discs though my gut feeling is that it came out of the factory like that. I always assumed the cans were off a cbr1000 also you'll notice one has slightly more rotation on it in relation to the hanger which makes one lower than the other.
Goes like a rocket though ha ha  [sdsdsdtq]

Welcome to the forum Kevin it will be interesting to keep an eye on my old bike!
