I went looking around and there is a 798cc big bore kit for the h2 750 motor.
Should be able to produce 100 rwhp (74 hp listed stock on the h2 750) that is reliable for street riding on pump gas.

Don't really want 9 cylinders but thanks for thinking of me..

I decided to take my 1975 750 frame and make a cafe bike out of it.
Starting a long ass parts list so a parts bike might be a good idea if i can locate one.

I like the cafe build shown above but would go with more of the stock fuel tank look and a larger round headlight.
Otherwise i love the aftermarket wheels and tires.
saves so much weight over the heavy ass stock ones the bike would be completely different to ride.

May even sell my KDX 250 and put the money into the project.

Depends on how expensive and hard to find the engine and carbs are.

I just love a project, better start by taking some pictures.

Yeah its all about Blendzall. If it were not toxic, I could sit behind it all day long and sniff it

when I was 17? I had an H2 750 trip.

It was an ex drag bike... I did a little work to it then had to sell the thing.

something about smoking burnouts at 80MPH and not wanting to die (thus the widowmaker!!!)

now... I wish I still had it.

Seems like there is 3 main choices for oil now, that i keep seeing popping up.

Maxima 927, Motul & Silkolene (AHRMA Champ "Supertune" Quenzler & Lyn Garland for Silkolene). Stuff is expensive.

I've been squeaking by on Amsoil (cheaper at 10 bucks a quart). But the right answer is probably a good race gas mixed w/ any of the three above for detonation protection and a CDI!! Pump gas and better keep the revs low and the ignition retarded.

I seen a guy do a 50mph rolling burnout, but that was a ZX12R and cheap tires. He tried that w/ a pirelli and the front end came up (too much grip).

For the love of Triples
Oh my god, I am so glad I'm not the only guy out there that loves the triple,My brother raced them starting in 1970.I was only 8 years old.He would put me on his bikes and say,hey you little brat if you can kick it over you can ride it. My brother died at a early age and my mom pulled out some pics and it hit me, man I remember smelling that bean oil and hearing him coming down the road for miles So I decided I was going to collect all the 500 H1s and all the H2s. I have been on a mission, I have a 71-73-74-75 H1 and I just picked up two H2s, a 72 H2 and a 73 H2. Here is a few more pics, My brother in 1971 with his H1.Also the 1971 H1 I just picked up, and the mint barn find I just picked up with Phil next to it,a 1972 H2 . Check out the ape hangers he put on in 1973,he also put the chrome front fender on in 1973.He rode this for 2 years and parked it.I didn't even wipe off the barn dust yet and the blue 1975 H1. My god man as long as my wife buys those purses I will keep looking for and buying TRIPLES. Pollution with a cause.

Thanks so much Dave,These great machines were the fastest production bikes in the world when they came out, Nothing like the sound of a Kawasaki Triple Two Stroke coming down the road,ask yourself when was the last time you seen one, Kawasaki should have put a patend on the sound like Harley Davidson did.
