I downloaded the manual just fine(i think) but cant seem to view it no matter what i do....i suck on computers.Im clueless and my girlfriend is tired of me bothering her all the time.I need this manual!!!!
Which manual are you having problems with? Most of them are in a .pdf format, which is best read with Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can find it here. Follow the instructions, and then download the manual, and open it with said reader.
If it doesn't work, post an update, and one of the admins will take a look at it.

Almost every computer sold is equipped with adobe reader and can read PDF's (portable document files).
What you do not get free is the ability to edit PDF files. For every operation on PDF files you need a add-on program. Te edit text you need Pit Stop program that is part of Adobe Acrobat PDF files.
The reason people use PDF files is because they do not know how to operate Illustrator,Photoshop and many other programs.
As soon as a illustrator file is saved as a PDF file it is ruined and can no longer be edited.
Same goes for Photoshop. Once you save it as a PDF file it is no longer editable. Unless you saved the original Photoshop file.
Adobe Acrobat PDF files were made for business type people to send large document at high speed all over the world. Because of outsourcing of jobs.
When Kinko's got rid of all the graphics people and it was bought by FED Ex the workers just tried to print all the documents from Illustrator,Freehand ,Photoshop and others as a PDF file.
Of course then a 44 layer photoshop file becomes ONE layer and can no longer be edited without special add on Acrobat PDF programs.
When you save a PDF file in Adobe Acrobat in can be saved in three levels of quality (three different file sizes. Screen(WEB), and Print.
Thinks of PDF files like this....
When you save it as a PDF file it is as if you sprayed the multi layer document with GLUE.
Downloaded the big shop manual from the first link and got raw coded text instead of pdf. Second link gave me a good pdf manual…THANKS!
Also searched the internet and found a site that had my year owners manual posted! Now I have the basics covered too. :)

The workshop manual for your CB750K 1977 will not help with the carbs.
If it has the accelerator pump feature you will need to get online help.
There is a bottom plate on the accelerator pump and there is a check ball with spring in it.
If that part does not work your carbs will never function correctly.
There is another check ball in the float bowl top edge that keeps fuel from
draining backwards but that check ball is usually not a problem.
If the carb float bowls are full (engine NOT running) and you actuate the
throttle, fuel should squirt out of all 4 brass tubes sticking up inside the venturis.
If not make sure the interconnecting tubes and brass spray tubes are not clogged.
The rest of the carb is cleaned the regular way. except the brass
idle jets are the push in type.
HINT... IF they are push in then they can be pulled out. Remove the
floats first so you do not damage the float.
i just downloaded the 79-83 manual for my 1980 750k and read the carb section in advance of my first cleaning coming up. i also have the haynes , plus the Internet of course ! thank you for making this available.
DUDE!! Why have I not downloaded this before!!??? Members kept telling me to download but I always assumed this was the same as my clymers manual, that is definitely not the case! Thanks guys this is great!!!
