Hey Rollen sadly kenessex went and got banned and much has changed here but life goes on for those addicted to motorcycles
I don't have experience in riding but have a class scheduled and if the budget allows I'll get a small engine bike. How heavy the bike is has definitely been plaguing my mind. Had me wondering if I should just restore it to working order then sell it for the going price (make a profit) and buy a CB550 or something 100 lbs less and slimmer. Initially I wanted a CB650 but a shop owner warned me that parts are hard to find and lots of issues with them. CB750F was out of my price range with the cheapest being $2500 (budget was $1000) and I bought this one for $700.So far it looks like a heavy bike that was rode hard and put away wet get it running first.
... do you have riding experience? that's not the easiest motorcycle in the world to learn to ride & modify
Compression test would be a good first step, you don't need the carbs installed to perform the test.
Ok will get to that asap, thanks bro!Any 4 cylinder bike is not a great bike to learn on, get some time on a dirt bike if you possibly can and that will help immensely.
