    dude. The constant replay is good coaching. Sorry ‘bout the bike. It’s just stuff. We’ve all been there.

    Finally got out on the bike for a short bit of errands. Spent more time off the bike than on, but it resulted in me getting the broken allen wrench out of the tank bolt, so that's good.

    Now I need to do some research to find out if the tank ring reused the stock bolts or if it replaced them with longer ones. I'm betting they are new.

    @nd4spdbh or @but why tho would one of you take a pic of your fuel cap so I can see the bolts?

    I don't know how helpful these are because I have the tank bag base on mine but here you go:

    Thank you. Those let me see the bolt heads for comparison, and that's what I need. Perfect. :thumbsup:

    Emailed my Honda dealer to see if he can get me the 2025 OEM Luggage bags and racks for the Grom. He was able to, so I got those ordered, he's saying they should be here Thursday. Hell yeah.

    [​IMG]

    Didn't get the top case, just the side ones. TBD if it'll work with my high mount exhaust, but I'm excited to see anyway. Worst case scenario I sell one bag and one half of the mounts.

    Dude that is awesome! I didn't even know that was an option. How much are the racks and bags?

    I want one as an Africa Grom now with little knobbies.

    A bit spendier than I would have liked, but not bad overall.

    I haven't seen the hand guards confirmed for the US market yet, but I'll probably order those if they are and I can find a part # for them. I tried the XR150 handguards but it used a different clutch perch and is closer to the bars and doesn't clear the groms clutch lever.

    Should've got giant loop bags. Then you'd really flinch! It's high quality but it's high price as well.

    I imagine the Honda bags are going to be solid for daily duties, yeah?

    Yeah I can't imagine they are more than 10 liters or so each. They're cheaper than the Kriega bags I have for sure, too. Mostly got them for shits and giggles and to do a video on them for the yootoobz.

    When I can get a mirror from Honda for $3 I was hoping they'd be a bit cheaper, but yeah, not bad overall. When a quality Kriega bag or similar is easily over $100. And shit, racks for $62 is a steal. I was hoping bags woudl have been closer to 40 or $50 each though.

    Yeah, kriega and mosko moto are tops for looks IMO, but dang the prices.

    Add Giant Loop Moto to that list. Their stuff looks great and functions great but sheesh they're expensive. Even at 50% off it seems expensive (though still worth it). I'm still glad I took your recommendation and got one though.

    My wife made fun of me when I told her I bought more bags.. I may have a luggage/bag problem..

    My main set is from Adventure Spec and I think they're pretty slept-on. I am really happy with them the few times I've used them. They need some form of a rack for most bikes but are super flexible overall and the price is right.

    Enough molle to add on whatever extra bags or things you need and ready to roll in a couple minutes.

    Back to civilization after being gone for a week or so. 1300+ miles of driving, ~600mi of moto riding in insane twisty beautiful mtn roads, hours of stand up jetskiing with 4 days on a houseboat surrounded by great friends on lake Shasta, absolutely phenomenal time all around.

    Sounds like everyone here has been doing decent in the time I took away minus some teeth surgery pain!

    What place was that!?!?!

    Aint nothing wrong with having a bad vibe and not hopping on the moto, done it many a time, hell I have had it overcome me to the point of turning around and going home after gearing up and getting on the bike.

    I can get you exact dimensions if needed of the stocker!

    Much appreciated, but I can see in the pics that the ones in my ring are not stock. I'll have to get them and remove the ring lock to put them in. Then I can put my bag on.

    Question for you since you've done tear downs on the front end. Does the dark grease in these pics mean I've got an issue? Planning a longer ride and want to be squared away.

    I'm no mechanic so I'm not sure if this might be the bearings you were talking about in the past.
    The bottom of the ignition cylinder was caked as well, so maybe somebody was lubing the ignition and was just messy?

    Hey Guys wondering if anyone has experience with cb750 carbuerators. I haven’t been able to find a shop to work on them so I’ve decided to work on them myself.

    A bit of backstory they were vapor honed about two years ago and probably due to bad/old gas they started to leak.

    First question is how can I tell what model they are? Comes from a 1981 cb750 with VB and 420(?)CTC7 on the carbs as seen in photo. From some tables it seems should be a VB42A model but I don’t see that anywhere.

    Next I assume I should replace all the gaskets and clean the bowls. Anything else I should do? I want to try to limit the need for me to tune the carbs.

    The last questions is it looks like there are hoses between each carb but between one set there isn’t. I am wondering if this is why the fuel leaks a bit(it comes out a lot)

    Sorry the photos may not be in order and TIA for any help. (Disregard the choke return spring missing, the wires are a workaround until I can try to find it)
