Hi Mods/Admin,

I have spent the past hour or so searching for info on cb900 cams into cb750 (I believe this is a good mod) and engine rebuilds in general (may have to go down this path so thought I'd read up). One thing I can't seem to be able to do is search threads by title only. Some searches are throwing 55-odd pages of results. Is there a way I can just search titles (and perhaps whittle the results down to probably useful ones rather than every thread where the word "engine" or the phrase "engine rebuild" is used) or do I really need to go through all 55 pages? Maybe I just start a new thread and people will hit me with links out of frustration at me asking a question that has been asked a million times before? Laughing

Is there an option to search title only that I'm not seeing, or is this something that could be engineered into the search function? I can give you another forum's address on (if you like) that has this option so you can see how it works.

I know less about computers than bikes so if this is a really difficult ask, or really simple oversight on my behalf, I apologise.

Bowie

And I've got a burning question about needing cb900 camshaft sprockets if I go down this path, or can I use the 750 ones, if I can find the info that says "go down this path".

Have you read the link in the NMT on using the search? It's the same one in my sig.

Quote:
...it is very easy to search for more than one search term and drill down to fewer returned items. You need to use the "Search for all Terms" button, otherwise it will just return all of the posts with the mention of any of the words. What you want is to limit the results to posts that contain all of the terms in each post. Keywords must have at least 3 characters.

You can also search just for one member's post on the keyword subjects, or without any keywords if you want all the posts from an author.

Go ahead and try the search below on your own computer and change some of the options around so you can see the changes the various options make:

Image

I also use the "Display all results as Posts" button so it takes me right to the very post I'm searching for instead of the thread, and I ask for the first 1000 characters of posts so I can usually determine if it's the right post without actually having to click to it, or read the whole post.

There are also other options, if you know the post you're looking for is very old, you can sort by the ascending order of posts instead of descending, and many other options. It is a very powerful tool if you just take some time to learn to use all the features.

So, if you're not sure of any particular post that you're looking for (I do because I have already read almost every post on this forum), but you are just searching for information, you would still use multiple search terms, just be sure to use the "Search for all Terms" button, but also use the "Display all results as Posts" button for this, and also select "Return first: All Available characters of posts" so you'll see entire posts instead of partials.

Thanks again. I missed the link to the search page. The search engine here isn't as intuitive as others I've used which was my undoing. Ticking the correct box is giving better results. Now, to find out about that sprocket...

If you buy a set of 900 cams, you should get the cam sprockets with them. Get with Neiko1967 here on the site and he should be able to take care of you…

There are some early 750 cams that had a larger center base circle for the sprockets at 36mm. Most 750s and all 900s, 1000s, and 1100s had 34mm base circle sprockets.

Check your inside diameter on your sprockets. If it's 34mm like most of them, they have the same sprockets as the 900 cams.

The base circles I refer to is just under the flanges that the sprockets bolt to as seen on these 900 cams.
