Yeah, I ran out of adjustment on the chain adjusters.....so I thought I'd move the engine forwards a bit......so far I've moved it to the garage......but I may need to move it a bit further.....maybe to the end of the garden.... :wink: :lol: :lol:

Is this project still alive? Just got whats left of my CB750 back from the recovery yard after it was stolen, thinking of doing a similar thing with the remains.
