Ok guys, Iīve been pretty busy with life so I had to leave the bike in the backburner for a while.

I read some forum posts everyday but I had no updates to write about. But I do now, even though
small in importance, itīs still updates.

Since the most important parts have arrived and I now have some time to kill, the rebuild will
not see much down time, hopefully.

Iīve been mostly cleanning and scrubbing tatty parts that for the most part, came out alright

The tank


Linkage


Miscelaneous parts


For an 18 year old bike, it cleans nicely

So far, the exhaust is only modification done.

Iīve bought an OEM Aprilia Mille exhaust for 20e but, as expected, itīs tatty, dirty and heavy
like a son of a b****!
Not kidding, this guy with all the internals must weight at least 12kg. Really, itīs heavy!

This is just the connecting pipe







The rest of the internals were just as bad, 3 cross walls, pipes, grids and honeycombs. I guess sound regulations
rule...

Iīve removed most of the restrictive stuff and just left a small spark arrestor grid.

The outer shell had to be modified from this



to this





I just rolled up a carbon fiber shell around the original one and it turned out pretty good.

Itīs not that big, itīs more an optical illusion it has 18x16x4. It maybe a bit bigger
than most but if I see that it looks misplaced Iīll replace it for something a bit smaller.

How about your bike? Iīve seen your recent "develpments"...tuff luck man., but sheīs rolling again
so itīs all good,right?

my bike is fine man! its me thats suffering! jajaj

after getting a wrong cw rocker I decided to just replace springs and seals and wait till I get my correct reground rocker so I can put in the cw hrc cam! cant wait!

the mikuni tm38 is a bit lean up top but other than that rocks...

yeah I figured cm's jajaja we use metric mostly down here too...

thats still pretty damn big! where do you plan on mounting it?

I need to install a cooler asap If i want to keep this carb

Im sure as soon as I install the new cam temps will go up too cause of the spirited riding Ill be doing so Im really interested in what you come up with

cheers man!

Hey guys, Iīve been slacking a bit cuzī my brother still havenīt brought me the frame
and the rest of the parts but itīs time for some updates.

Iīve split the cases and it was pretty much as expected, worn out gears, piston in spec but
a bit scratched, cylinder scratched and out of round. 98mm it is then.

The good news are that the rod is within spec with only minor visual scratching.

Remember my crusty chamber and valves?




The inner springs were way below specs but not the outside ones. All of them leaked, especially
the exhaust ones, which were pitted.

Cleaned the chamber



Picked up my highly advanced and precise valve turning equipment



Worked the valves with the magic machinery



Itīs all good and sealed now

Itīs a shame about the piston, it looks brand new, itīs within spec at 97,48mm, had no
signs of blowing through but it was probably put on a non fresh cylinder that was
already out of round. Slapping as left some skirt marks and it was dangerous to leave it as
is.



The grinder took care of the welded sprocket and shifter. Unfortunately, the previous owner
welded the shifter directly to the shift shaft and it has to be replaced.
