  1. Yeah, probably spec for some specific country. CA carbs also had the idle adjust directly below the carbs, no cable out to the side. I grew up in CA, first thing you did when you got a bike was try and restore it back to what the other 49 states got.
  2. Yup, those brackets off the passenger peg mounts. You can run them without them, but the plastics flex more. We can't get them anymore in the states, but they do show up on Eblag. I think Suzuki sold off or killed off the last of a lot of these little random brackets in the last 5-10 years. Every time I look for some OEM bolt or bracket I need to restore my one "stock" bike I find it's unavailable unless it was used on more than one model that was only around for a year or two. Part number is 43815-41C0V, they were only one the 91/92 750/1100. Also need the cushions which are 09320-08018, and they're still around.
  3. Can confirm, I've got American BST38s on a 750N and they've got all the tubing, but the power jets are blocked with a #0 jet. I thought all the bandits had a single fuel inlet in the middle between #2 & #3 and a remote choke. Those look like GSXR 750 carbs maybe for a specific market with restrictive emissions? Everything looks right except the lack of the power jet holes.
  4. Possible to use an oil cooled axle in W forks?
  5. Have to use bandit cam gears on the GSXR cams, and anything is better than stock bandit cams.
  6. If you already have the MP throttle, just swap out the throttle tube for an R6 one or something similar. I’ve got a couple of them and I agree, practically have to readjust your hand on the throttle to get it wide open.
  7. No worries, we have the same problem, and definitely worse on hot days.
  8. Nice, I’ve got an old ratty slingshot 1100 frame that I’m gonna do a similar thing with. B12, dot head until I can get a 1216 kit in it. I love my purple 750N, but damn does it kill my back after awhile, I need more naked bikes back on the road.
  9. By the way, what are you doing to the B12 engine? I can’t imagine it’s going in stock.
  10. Only if the header clears the sump. L/M are more likely to fit than a J/K as they’re slightly taller engines. The rest of it should line up fine as long as it clears the sump.
  11. Check the float needles, they shouldn’t leak, but all my bikes with RS or FCR carbs I just get in the habit of turning the petcock off when leaving the bike. I’ve got a dirt bike made by that brand that won’t be mentioned here with an FCR carb on it, and if I leave the petcock on, the garage smells of gas constantly because the float bowl vents directly to atmosphere and it’ll keep evaporating gas as long as there’s gas in the bowl.
  12. My 7/11(that I need to put back together) has RS38s, you give up some bottom end around town, but get into the twisties or a long open road, and they come alive. Velocity stacks and RamAir filters are the way to go with them. I’m expecting my 750 to be nothing but top end with them if I can get it running.
  13. Crank won’t budge if you try and turn it?
  14. Glad to know I’m not the only one, and I can still ride the bike but it’s fucking distracting shifting gears. Makes me actually use the clutch to shift. Gonna pull my carbs apart in the morning, if I have to do the valves, I’m gonna drop in an 1127 and rebuild the 750 later.
