Question about 1996 Honda CB 750F2 Seven Fifty
Sounds like tappets only on cold start goes after 3 or 4 minutes
Hello, Many years ago Honda had severe problems with K2 and KZ cams and lifters giving us many headaches. However in modern engines a lot is down to hydraulic lifters/ cam followers and suitable oil, believe it or not the wrong grade can make a whole heap of difference also leaving service intervals too long stretches the life of the lubricant. Remember these are high revving engines so take a lot out of any oil.
Are you using a synthetic lubricant, your environment can alter the viscosity i.e. cold climate thinner oil warm environment medium very warm thinnish.
Although the noise you are experiencing is acceptable at the moment if it gets worse or takes longer to clear a top end internal inspection will be required.
For now if it were me I would be double checking the grade/quality of your oil, then change it and a new Genuine oil filter .
Good luck! I hope this helps?
