Ironically though, the first available reverse-engineered replacement x-ring for the 700S petcock was only available from Ireland.


Make sure you check in before ordering any parts -- there have been a lot of workarounds developed for the bits that you can't get any more!

Yep the 4 into 4 was a bad idea - they never warmed up enough to remove the water..
Regardless, it is a VERY nice machine.
Thanks for sharing the pic - It brought me back!

It is probably not as nice as the photo looks but it is very nice. These 350's (like similar period 550 and 750's) came with a 4 into 4 exhaust. In order to save weight the 350 pipes were thin and very prone to corrosion. Original or NOS 4x4 pipes are rare and $$$. That is one reason you will see a lot converted to 4 into 2 or 4 into 1.

It a 1993. I screwed up the header of the original post. I will fix the size of those pictures when I get home.

I sprayed a full 4/1 system I bought for 30 quid( minus tenner for shotblasting) while I was at it, I fitted new original rear indicators and cleaned the whole plastics on the back end. I love this 80's bike. Wish I could show pictures of her ( black Betty.....every bike has to have a name......)

Ayup, I have a 700 sc which was brought over to here in England. The balancer pipe between the two into ones both sides is rusted. I bought ( 30 quid) a complete 4 into 1 exhaust in stainless...flipping lucky. All bolts came away easy, all four colletes slid straight iut, and new exhaust straight on.  I have fell in love with this bike I inherited. You don't know how hard It is to get bits here in blighty.

Wow !

That bike is C L E A N !!!

Were those 4 into 2's stock? 
Maybe I'm remembering an earlier 4 into 4 version back in the day.
In any case, way to check off a bucket list item.
I doubt you could have done better with the help of a genie in a bottle.

I just looked up the value in Hagerty assuming it was a 1973 (not that you'd want to sell it)
If it is as pristine up close as it looks in your photo, looks like a $4,000 to $5,000 bike.

Well done sir!

Numbers are easy to remember incorrectly.
1996 Honda Owners Manual, page 100, specifications:
Fuel tank capacity    4.76 US gal (18 liters)
Reserve capacity      0.79 US gal (3 liters)

It actually kinda makes more sense in liters than gallons, as .79 is a bit odd... IMHO.

I guess two things come out of this.
Be sure of capacity if that's the reason you are upgrading.. 
If you go on reserve using the stock tank, be looking for fuel shortly after rotating the petcock towards the rear...

I only have one bike, but I thought I remembered 1.3 from the owner's booklet.
