You'll find a LOT of articles on pods and the CV carburetors. Consensus is that you _can_ run pods on the CV carbs, but it involves some tuning, jet replacement, filter modifications, and several adult beverages.
While the look of pod filters is enticing, the carbs really don't like it. To avoid headaches, try and run the stock airbox.

Hi, I have a 1980 CB750K with a 4 into 1 header and the stock air box. I had a flat spot around 4500 RPM. I re-jetted to 105's and saw a complete fix. I think for open exhaust and pods you would want to try 110-115's.
Try the Vintage CB750 website, they have a kit for about $32 which includes 4 each of #105,#110,#115,#120

I like vintage bikes because they take me away from the clutter of technology that I work with everyday and back to a simpler time of mechanical elegance and simplicity.. "ninadm"

Thanks for the threads guys they helped a lot
So I currentley have the bike running pretty well, the jets are 80/120
Fuel needels are out 3 turns and I taped up the filters to help with the vacuum and it was surprising how much that helped.
I just have two issues now.
It won't idle without choke, when I give it throttle the engines deceleration is very slow.
Now I did just do a complete clean/rebuild, but unfortunately I saw some rust build up dust make its way through the fuel filter, so now I'm wondering if the idle jet is clogged?
