Because of shipping restrictions of anything with fuel residue, it's just about impossible for me to get any exhausts sent over from Japan any more, which is where I found my Kerker system.  Embarrassed

Honda made various similar style bars to the CB-1s for other models that should fit. I can't remember which models exactly but the VFR800s are 41mm so might be a good place to start. The MKll CB-1 also had higher bars as standard. It will be easier to go this route than finding a top yoke or drilling yours for risers.
I havn't got a clue where they are but somewhere I have a set of what I think are VF1100R bars that are the same size.

I can help with the two infills and I have a gas cap with key but it has had a fake kevlar cover stuck on it.

Blimey many bikes and so little time.

I've seen a lot of good condition systems for sale in Japan recently but they're just too big for regular shipping, if only they made it a two or 3 piece. I could see if I can get 4 or 5 systems slotted in a crate somehow but it's the storage thats going to be the problem.
Still got my Kerker that I bought new, sold to help pay for the Yamagamma and then bought back again! I keep my eyes open for another but that's the only one I've ever seen.

On a brighter note, I can get hold of repro CB-1 stantions now:-

Yes it has snapped, then I ran it without knowing which rounded the shift, it broke as my very old  coolant froze and jammed the water pump.  how long or difficult would it be to sort oil pump, competent diyer or garage?

Oil pump....or water pump?
6  Classifieds / For Sale / New Starting Clutch Available on: December 21, 2017, 01:08:42 PM
I've managed to pick up a couple of new starting clutches along with the thrust bearings, pinion gear, pulse rotors,(gear), and side cover gaskets. I'm in no rush to get rid of them but will do if anyone gets stuck in the future.
These have been NLA from Honda for a long time and as most already know, they are prone to come loose with vibration, sometimes needing replacement.

Can post anywhere if required.

Cheers, Drew.

It may be worth noting that these starter clutches come with at least three part numbers that I know of, maybe that's down to Honda using different suppliers......I don't know.

Looks like the CB-1 pump has a mechanical water seal that packs up, (probably from incorrect coolant use).
 I've just rebuilt the GT Water Pump which has a similar affair. The same seals are used by washing machine manufacturers but it's not that easy to get hold of the correct size.

Going by how few there are around, it may be worth a punt.
Talking about translation, I found this Japanese blog where the chap has fitted a different waterpump to the CB-1 cap. It's not pretty but he says it lasted a year.
You'll need to click the translate icon in the address bar:-

Yeah...quite a few aftermarket impellers on the market now. Most used ones will be sold with the motors. What failed on your pump?

"Hory Clap"! Now the question begs to be asked. How much would it cost to ship to the U.S. address?

I'd guess about $50 by air, $30 by slow mail but theirs a catch -  they're very strict at the airports now with anything that gives off any odour of fuel, most agents in Japan won't touch anything fuel related for this reason. I havn't tried recently but my agent doesn't care too much as long as you accept that, if it gets refused at the airport, you have to pay for it's return to the warehouse and accept all losses. It hasn't happened to me yet but if it did, I could relist on Yahoo to get some money back. This tank has the cap and tap removed so, in theory, shouldn't smell too bad but it's still a bit of a gamble basically. The description states that the tank does have a small dent front right and you have to be careful with CB-1 tanks as small dents can be hidden by its shape at the front.
