Switch to a springer, or girder front end. However you might want to start with changing to fork oil (it uses ATF for oil) and check the steering bearings. I would recommend swapping to tapered roller bearings. Cycle-X sells a kit to do this.

Thanks for the word on the front end.  i just found out i have a bigger problem. My charging system is not working.  I battery is new and been tested.
i need to change my charging system on my 1975 honda cb 750. Is timing an issue in doing this?  And can anyone suggest a good video. I am  mechanically a C plus but hoping me and a A plus guy can do it. He just did nt want to get involved with messing with the timimg.   thanks for all the help.

The charging systems on the SOHC are pretty bullet proof. Have you check it with a volt/Ohm meter to see if it is charging? I would be checking the wiring, and the voltage regulator. If you did have problem with the stator, it ca be changed without affecting the timing.
