CB750 scrambler project
@markus-w great thanks but I have a dt200wr which was sold in the US and that wasn't push-pull.
The carbs to have slots for two cables day + choke cable.
the CB 750 doesn't seem to have that breather pipe, but on this cbx750 it does.
Brains hurting from all the learning on this build haha.
I'm happy the rolling chassis is done.

@Louis-DT-WR my thirst for knowledge has got the better of me I've just done a bit of googling and apparently it's only four strokes have 2 cables because the extra vacuum created by a 4 stroke can cause the throttle slide to flutter and jam against the side of the body. That seems to me the most logical explanation so far.
@markus-w possible. The other thing with this engine is why does it have 2 oil fillers caps ️ 1 says (don't open) but that's the sprocket side.
In some pictures I see that's where the dipstick is on some bikes. My dipsticks on the clutch cover side like most bikes.
Haynes don't do a cbx750 manual.
Just going to persist working through all the small bits.
So the carbs were very similar but not correct.
So I started again parts are taking so long to come from overseas
All new float bowl gaskets, diaphragms, o-rings and rejetted.
Powder coated parts
Stainless steel Allen cap bolts

Too many strokes in that engine
@Darty yes but 4 cylinders is a nice compensation
I've got a name for her.... "Lucille"

I mean, yeah I agree two many strokes.
But doesn't stop this being a really interesting and cool build.
Loving it pal, keep it up!
@Calum cheers man, will keep posting when I get some big progress, stupid Chinese virus is holding up my parts
Finally my bar clamps came, 3 weeks.
I've got the controls, grip, master cylinders on. Front brake operational.
Choke and throttle cables.
Front headlight on the number board (not finished yet) more to add to it.
Pro taper contour bars.
Rear fender (when pulled out, it's a shovel! (Entrenching tool))
Slowly making progress.
