Benelli 750 sei

If in doubt, or it doesn't seem to fit elsewhere - put it here.

First start!
Fired right up and sounds great.

I’m busy a few days, but will attack major fitment issues with Busso pipes after that. I just had to hear it run.

Sasche ignition went right on with no issues and works very well.

Sounds awesome. Always a good feeling to hear them come alive after a major rebuild. Congratulations

I took it off the lift so I could run it more (without asphyxiating myself)

I finished fitting air filter housing and air filter- plus new battery.
Put on the spare side covers and finished up the crankcase breather/separator setup - just need one 1/2” hose.

I have the spare tank ready to fit the petcocks in and will use until I paint the tank/side panels.
I will get it where I can run it again with my test fuel bottle- hooking up the old Carb Stix and finish the carb sync.

I took the 750 sei out for the first ride!

Sure great to ride it- since it did not run when I got it.
Every nut/bolt/clip/part I took off, replaced or cleaned up and put all back together.

I have the spare fuel tank /side covers on (have not painted the original ones yet) and a couple other little things to do. But fired right up, runs great!

Just a bit of a ride on the new Moto Storichei pipes.

I may have taken it to 5k rpm once, but really just cruising along. I think around 160 miles on the engine now.
