    1975 CB 750F

    I just bought a 75 CB 750 as a first project bike. I also ordered a manual for it since i don't have one. I thought the bike was air cooled but their seems to be an after market radiator on it. Has anyone ever seen anything like it? I live in the mountains and it is generally cool enough. i don't want it on there if it doesn't need to be.

    Any thoughts?

    Oil cooler, probably.

    Pics?
    I'd say the "radiator" your referring to is most likely a aftermarket oil cooler of some kind.

    Don't know if I've ever seen anything like it - very difficult to tell from the picture you didn't post and the description you didn't provide. But yeah, that isn't stock.

    Do you need it? Short answer is no, not unless you plan to do unusually taxing things to that motor. On the other hand, if someone fit that on the engine, what else did they do? It's entirely plausible that you've got an aftermarket cam or bore kit that could use the extra cooling. Might want to investigate before you rip the radiator off.

    Thanks for the response. I'll take and post a pic tonight. Sorry I am at work and was just surfing, i dind't have a pic with me.

    Oil cooler makes more sense. It looks like a radiator of sorts but doesn't have a fill cap or overflow.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I should clarify: definitely an oil cooler - no water passages to speak of.

    Slednecking = Snowmobiles. It's like being a redneck with a sled.

    How do I add a picture?
