ok just trying to be friendly cowboy, what do want to know about Triumphs in the colonies.:cool:
I thought your post was asking for help not offering what we didn't ask for. You said help may be needed on your "racering" of your Triumph yet didn't say what your issues were.

It seems your GPS once again gave you the wrong directions.

1. Decide if this is a technical question or if you are going to make a project out of it and post in the correct forum.
2. Don't expect any help without
.....a) as much information as possible including carb type/numbers/exact bikes
.....b) why do you think the carbs are "trashed?"
.....c) have you done anything to clean the 750 carbs?
.....d) more information about yourself including
..........1-where you are from
..........2-what your experience is with building engines

And welcome.

Hey Junior, at 31 you probably are one of the younger members here.

So I'm not sure if anyone else has this issue or if it's been mentioned before, but since the site update, I've noticed a lot of pictures uploaded to threads are not automatically resized. This will happen randomly to random threads with some pictures showing up a viewable size or others showing up at the original (huge) size.

I'm currently using the current version of firefox as my browser.

Anyone have any fixes?

Hello all,

So i'm not bike mechanic but i wrench on cars. Clearly totally different situations. 83 Suzuki Gr650 tempter was given to me and the engines good and starts but i guess its not shifting into gear or wont stay in gear. I really could use as much information as possible and whatever else you could assist me with. Also a bolt broke and i obviously have to drill it out should i tap and re thread or should i use a threaded sert instead? Any car problems i would be more than willing to help you guys figure things out. Thanks and looking forward to some good info!
