Just saying hello

Post by TerminatorTom »

Hey Everbody! I just signed up and figured I should introduce myself. I've mainly been a car guy my entire life(have a 03 SVT cobra, 72 Buick GS stage 1, 71 Monte Carlo SS and a 99 Trans Am). 3 years ago I bought my first bike a 2019 cb650r, it was a great bike but I ended up selling it about a year ago. Im wanting to get another bike but I want something different, something classic and I fell in love with the 750 Turbo! It's a shame they made so few of them as they seem hard to find now a days. My question is this, what could I expect to pay for a mechanically sound 750 turbo in fair-good shape? How reliable are they in general and how difficult/expensive are parts to find if the bike does break down? Thanks for reading and I hope to get know more about these bikes and community!

Welcome Tom to the forum

If you want a good runner get one that is used and often. Usually all the work has been done to get the 750 running right. Once there right they usually run good all the time. I put over `15 k on mine first years had it with no issues once had the small bugs fixed. Usually fuel system is the bug needs work from tank to the injectors. System is very easy to work on and parts replacement available if not original. Same with turbo we do those in stock or upgraded billet. Electronically they are pretty reliable. One issue is the design of the turbo was very low and they tend to leak oil thru the seals from sitting. This can be eliminated by installing the check valve upgrade supply line. Or ride it every few weeks. Even then some get some light smoke the first 10 minutes then gone. So the line does eliminate this issue. Did many day rides of 200 to 400 miles and never broke down so there pretty reliable once you know there in order. Lot of help here from many members know these 750s inside and out. Search is your best buddy here for good reading. Check the home feed categories for good reading and understanding what the 750 is all about and how to maintain her. :thumbup

Thanks for the reply and the information! I'm glad to hear they are quite reliable and that parts can be found without too much trouble. I'm keeping my eye out for a good one, let me know if you see one for sale that isn't too far from middle TN. In the meantime I'll keep researching
