  1. 83 GS750E carb rebuilder recommendations

    Well, after years of sitting in the corner, my poor 83 750E is finally on the lift. I already pulled the carbs.

    Since the valve issue has already been taken care of I think you have a winner. Those bikes are very nice looking and fun to ride.
    Go through the carbs thoroughly and get the seat taken care of....

    My friend had a 1970 Maverick. Didn't look anything like that. But didn't Honda try front wheel drive in
    the Ridgeline ? I'm not sure that was a big seller.

    If you don't have the suction cup tool, you can put the valve through the guide then slip some rubber tubing
    over the valve stem. This will give you something to hold as you spin the valve.
