been working on one of my sohc cb750's, replaced the clutch with a barnett & heavy springs and slapped in an aftermarket cam. so after this i notice the drive chain has a split link, it was a sunday afternoon so i just picked up a lesser brand chain that'll work for now. so today i'm jammin home from work and i pull in the garage.... freakin oil is everywhere !!!!! after looking around i notice it's the seal behind the front sprocket. worst part is i just washed the bike which doesn't happen very much lol. so now i gotta rip into it again.

so i go to start my cb750 hondamatic, freakin battery is toasted. won't take a charge at all but i rode it yesturday so i know it's good.... nope it's toasted. so now i'm a little upset cause i gotta buy another battery, just bought one 1 month ago for another cb750. then the wife tell's me to run that battery back and tell them you just bought it last month, that worked and i walked out with a new battery !!!!

nah i already built a couple R6's and an R1. i'd rather work on my old ass honda's than those lol. i still have alot of parts left over and i'm gonna use a R6 frontend on my cb750 road raper. that is if i ever find time to make a new stem for it.
