    Just joined the forum

    I've just joined the forum and would like to introduce myself.
    I'm a 67 year old Aerospace Engineer, who has been motorcycling since the
    '50's. I've owned a couple of British bikes, a Yamaha TD1C, a Kawasaki Mach
    IV and a slew of Honda's. I currently have a '65 CB77 vintage roadracer that
    I do occasional track days with, an '80 CBX, an '02 RC51 that I also do track
    days with and an '05 CBR1000RR Repsol Edition.

    If anyone can help, I need a set of #35 slow jets for a Honda CB450 carburator.
    They are not available from Honda anymore. I've been searching all over the net
    but I'm not having any luck.

    When I figure out how, I'll be posting some pictures of the Superkawk ans will
    describe the modifications I have made, which are extensive.

    Welcome
    A couple of us here also race Superhawks. Mine is a stock frame, stock motor and DreamQueen has a motor of unknown tune in a Yetman frame. Both bikes have tanks and seats crafted by Monkey. Also, former Yetman craftsman Camelhairy checks in from time to time.
    I look forward to details of your bike.

    Yow. Not sure that was the proper response to this guy.

    Look forward to seeing your bikes, MR305. Don't have any jets for you, though, sorry.

    It's like a Machiavellian 4-volume trilogy based on Hamlet senza misura with an ego-maniacal downs syndrome kid reading from a Rube Goldeberg-esque kindle.

    Hey Evil
    It's customary to wait until after lunch to start drinking.

    If you can locate a decent set of jet drills, just fill a set of jets and redrill..
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.
