    $3500 for a 19 year old beat dirt bike?!?! That thing looks rode hard and put away wet. I sold a clean 2016 CRF450 with 40 hours on it for $4500 just last year.

    now this is a purchase I can't endorse lol. price seems way too steep.

    lol that's a hell of a combo. wonder if that minibike is still usable...says never run

    Doesn't sound too bad, glad you and the bike are okay, keep an eye on that wrist though and take it easy. so many little bones and tendons in there.

    I'm sick right now so I know exactly what you mean as far as mornings and nights being worse. Glad to hear it's going smoothly though

    Are you talking about this hole? I don't believe I saw any fuel ever come out of this.

    I was more concerned about this gap if you can see it. It has some hose on one side but nothing attaches to the other side. On the other carbs the hose connects to both.

    My trouble has been finding a suitable shop to work on these. They all ghost me haha. Seems there too busy and don't want to deal with old bikes. I might send them by mail to someone that looks to do good work and he has the choke springs I am missing.

    The carbs were working fine for me for 400 or so miles. I let the bike sit a few months and when I'd turn the fuel petcock on, it would leak over a cup full of gas or more. I didn't see any fuel coming from the lower overflow nozzles.

    VintageCB750 looks to sell everything I'd need but I think I am missing some parts now. Im fairly mechanically inclined just haven't worked on carbs much. And Im trying to stomach paying $500 to have these rebuilt vs me doing it myself.

    I guess I should hook up a fuel source and see where it is leaking from off the bike.

    Been trying to locate a decent photo and I think this eBay auction shows the crossovers as well as anything I've found.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/3352301865...MIiKzj_tTWhgMV8UtHAR18igvnEAQYASABEgJjjfD_BwE

    They're all vapor blasted and super clean so this might help

    They appear to be fuel inlets ports as they enter those center 2 carbs at the same height as the crossover tubes coming out the other sides of the carb bodies to feed the outside carbs. A few pictures I looked at it looked like the early CB750 must have split the fuel line coming off the petcock into 2 fuel lines. My CB400F, that's where it has a T fitting and uses a single fuel line. I couldn't recall your year so just looked to try and find a clear pic that might be useful. Those are off a 1976.

    Thanks. Mines a 1981 CB750k. I have one main fuel line from the petcock between the first and 2nd carb.

    From this photo I found there is a T there and also to the right is where my main fuel line is(yellow square). I feel this is where it was leaking. But I still don't know if this is an overflow line?

    What do you guys wear/suggest when it's 97 degrees of hot out and the jacket is way too warm?

    I have a mesh Joe Rocket jacket I picked up off FB for cheap. Admittedly, I don't always wear it though :anonymous:

    It wasn't that hot on my last ride, but it was in the mid/upper 80s and my Klim Marrakesh jacket (1st gen) was great. My legs were another story. This freakin' Super Tenere engine puts off some HEAT.

    If that is the main fuel line coming from the tank there will be O-rings on each side to seal that T fitting to the carb bodies. They can flatten out over time and no longer seal or split and obviously no longer seal. One thing you can try is if you can get close to it is take some baby powder and put on both sides and then open the fuel petcock and you should see where it gets wet

    I'll be honest I kinda just suffer. My summer jacket is a textile Dainese Avro D2 that has vents at the shoulder and back. I pull the liner, and leave the vents open in summer. Not too bad if you aren't getting stuck in city traffic regularly.

    Rather sweat than bleed so

    That being said, work through the PDF I linked the other day, see where the individual pieces are and maybe that'll help you get everything sorted back in place. I'm with Chuck in thinking that it would be an o-ring on your main fuel inlet. Any overflow would be at the bowls themselves.

    Yeah this was the backup plan which at this point might be the best path. And have the old carbs as backup once I get everything sorted out.

    Having been down the CB and vintage bike path in the past, do the Mikunis. Trying to sync 4 carbs is a nightmare. All the vintage shops in Seattle are gone, priced out. Even if you did find someone, it'd be $125+ an hour, might as well just get new parts instead
