My K3 has a steel chaingaurd.   The PO's weren't hands-on enough to change anything, so I thought it was stock.  It's mfg date is 10/72.

I picked one up last summer, the chrome is peeling and it's going to need to be stripped or sanded down to be nice.  I'm planning to make a copy of it for my bike.

Thanks Rob!   If it works out well enough, and is rideable, I'll be making up a few extra sets of spacers so anyone can can bolt one up.

After some considerable thought about what to do about front tire choice given the 3.5" wide front wheel I picked up last year...and the conflicting tire size I'd planned to go with all along...oops (which I calculated my trail numbers in reference to)  I've picked up another wheel, earlier CBR vintage, and this one's 2.5" wide.  So on with the original plan.  110/80-17 front and 130/70-17 rear.  If for some reason I decide to go with wider tires down the line, I'll keep the 3.5" wide front, and my 4.00 wide rear can handle up to a 170 tire, as if the stock K3 swingarm will allow that....  And up to a 140 front on the 3.5" wheel.  Talk about a steamroller.

Hey there Ben, I'm glad to hear you're getting over the flu.  I've got to make spacers for the front and rear wheels, and maybe a shim for the sprocket to get it into the calculated chain line, but that's all to get it rolling.  I may use my stock fork ears, they'll fit on the forks but aren't in very good shape, maybe I'll fab some aluminum ones and paint them gray too, yeah and my airbox and headlight bucket too! (I love spontaneous ideas) I've got to assemble the front and rear brakes, and get the new rear tire mounted up, but that's about it for the chassis.  Oh, I still have to degrease the frame and paint it.  Then I'm back to work on the engine, still have to get those studs changed out, and reassemble the top end.  Engine side and cam covers will be polished and attached with a stainless screw kit, fork lowers will stay close to the color they are now and I want to top them off with gaiters to keep the style correct and hide those ugly fork tubes.  The front wheel needs to look more like the rear, I'm not sure just what to do there yet.  But it's coming along, with 6 more weeks of winter I'd better get moving, right?

Good luck with the SV, and your Fender Rhodes piano too!

1810  Selling and Buying / Wanted\Buyers Delight / Vetter mounts for sohc 4's ??? on: December 28, 2008, 07:58:36 PM
I'm considering going vetter on my K3, everyone I mention it to has a story and it seems like one would fit right with the type of riding I do. 

So I'm looking for a vetter fairing mount for a cb750, but if anyone has mounts for other sohc 4's that you'd take a few dollars for.... please let me know.
1811  Motorcycle Stuff / Honda SOHC4's / Re: HD the questions begin on: December 05, 2008, 11:35:37 PM
Thanks Ben, that simplifies things quite a bit.  This engine has never been open to the elements maybe it won't be so bad.  which thread locker type did you use, blue or red?

And thanks again for the pictures, looks like great riding country.
1812  Motorcycle Stuff / Honda SOHC4's / HD the questions begin on: December 05, 2008, 08:05:17 PM
OK, thanks to cycle-X and ebay's 10% coupon I picked them up for regular price and essentially free shipping.  Now to re-read all the sohc4 posts and figure out how to attack.  I know a few of you have them, Mike has doubtless installed them more than once...(thanks for the pointer to get them Mike)  now I'm looking for tips and tricks, I've read that some have milled an old stud into a thread chaser, I've got a small mill...  worth the time?   Where to begin, remove them all and install them all, noting where the shorter ones go?  or one at a time?  Clean threads in cases with solvent and blow clean, a few drops of assembly lube, double nut the stud and torque to 8 ft/lbs... any tricks nobody talks about, or just read it all and attack?

Thanks gents.

Thanks Ben, It's always great to be with you guys. 
My gear arrived today by fed-ex. The chaps are a little tight, but they're also my first pair to date, so I'm sure they'll wear in nicely in a week or two... thinsulate gloves too, should be an experience getting used to them too...   if anyone's interested I got them from They're in South Dakota biker country, they combined the items I wanted into one auction and I bought on Saturday, with the holiday and all fed-ex delivered them this afternoon (Saturday) The leather's pretty good for the price, made in Pakistan.
