In Over My Head...

...and loving it!

Just purchased a '95. I'm cleaning the carb and am starting to enjoy the wonders (and fiscal liabilities) of motorcycle repair. Who knew that an air cutoff valve diaphragm is worth 40$!!! (actually I found it for 12 - with an o-ring and spring included!)

I can't wait to get my bike working the way it should - the first time I took it out I felt so incredible. I am pleased to have found a group just for the 750s! I am ready to completely take this thing apart and put it back together again.

I will ride this thing all over the place. I have big plans and I say hello to you all. Thank you much.

Welcome! Sounds like you are having fun. Think you're the first to work on the carbs and not mention what a pain it was getting them out! Your positive attitude will be a definite plus. Enjoy the ride!

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
