    Default Simplified cb750 chopper diagrams?

    Alright guys helping a buddy out, he got a sohc Honda chopper we are trying to bring back to life and want to redo all the rat nest wiring. I’m looking for a basic kick only chopper wiring diagram. Running points and with just a key switch. So turn key and kick. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    But note the following quote, from the CB750 Owners’ Forum

    “Cracked side covers, worn side covers, the ratchet assembly inside will start slipping, bent or twisted off kickstart shafts all have been known to happen. The shafts are weak, the side cover has no bushing or bearing so the shaft wears directly on the soft aluminum side cover. The ratcheting system for the kickstart is fairly weak especially when you get into bigger bore motors, if it starts to slip and not catch you have to split the cases to do any repairs. The kickstart on these was only meant as a backup for the electric start because at the time people still didnt 100% trust the electric start systems of the era.”

    The kickstarter is most robust on these that that quote gives credit for, there's plenty of kick-only CB choppers on the road. That being said, unless you are going to actually remove the starter, then you might as well just keep the starter solenoid and then you can get a keyswitch with a sprung 3rd position and start the bike like a car. That's what I did on mine when I had one and you can keep your bars nice and clean and the solenoid is simple enough to hid away.
