I love it!

Finaly took the bike home tonight. I love it. I skipped class since I know what's going on for the most part and mounted my tires.

Getting the old ones off was pretty time consuming. Silicon, some hacksawing, swearing, sweating and finally pulling it off with my own arms freed the front wheel.

Mounted my pirelli and balanced with half an ounce of weight. Then the rear, silicon was all I needed. Came off under a minute and threw the new rear on. I didn't bother balancing it. Just placed the dot on the valve. Checked all my bolts and fired it up. Went around the block and adjusted the rear brake and took off 13 miles home. Loved all of it. Worth skipping auto trans class.... Me thinks so!

I remember reading an article that talked about the CHIPs using the 750A for a patrol bike for a number of years. The transmissions lasted through 3 engine rebuilds. They weren't the fastest by any means, but they were extremely dependable for that day and age and they were fast enough.
