Is there any problem areas on the 750/900 Fs to be aware of when looking at a used one?

I put over 50K on mine without any problems, just usual maintenance.

Oddly that was my last Jap bike until last year when I got my FJR.

When the 900F came out then I really wanted one...and when the 1100 version came along I just had to get one!

Here's my old 73 Honda CB350f. I had two of them.





Man, those pipes are awesome.

I remember riding Death Valley in '92 or so with my friend Mike Leebolt, we both had 1968 Triumph TR6s. When we got around to looking, the numbers were less than 100 apart. Probably built in the same month about a quarter century earlier on another part of the planet. Fate is strange!

I no longer have that bike, but he still has his.

Yo ST58, I like that attitude, reminds me of a favorite quote (surprise ;-) from Keenan Wynn to some bike rag in the late 60s about his hill climbing at his age (in his 50s then I believe)

Cush drive

[quote=caponerd]I'd like to know more about this cush drive. Is this something that was available on the aftermarket, or did you engineer it yourself?

Hello Cap,

The cush drive was a drive shaft that had a spring loaded segment. It was stock from 81 on I believe. It is plug and play although you will need a special drive shaft tool to remove the old one and reassemble a new one. You can also plug and play the whole swingarm from the 81 -84 into the older models.

Cheers,

Hey scottyb

That's a sweet ride. What kind of mods have you done on it? What"s that fairing?
