I am sure the cases could leak into the bottom of the combustion chamber and reek RPM havoc.

Have you gone to Kawasaki triples worldwide . com ?

Did you let the sealer set up before firing it up?

I did but used the red high temp. silacone rather the recommended 3 bond 1194 which I now have a tube of (of course). Yeah, the triples site is a weath of info. The kick started was never wound right on the spring.
The K3 site had links to photos etc. on the proper install.
I've got sooo much on my plate right now pulling the motor again will have to wait. Hey...it starts with a couple kicks at least!

Roughly but the knee portion is more contoured than the norton.

iirc it was a custom aluminum jobber.

Believe it or not I got the H-1 running...again. Turns out it had the wrong coils in it hence the magic smoke coming out of them.
Also replaced all the points with new. I was always kind of underwhelmed by the power considering all the hype with the triples. Well now it have a MUCH better spark and hence at 7500 rpm it sounds like three chain saws running WFO and is now far too fast for the chassis and cheesy brakes...as it should be. Not to mention the dry rotted tires....hmm better order up some new tubes and skins....

Did you set the timing with a dial gauge? How many degrees before TDC?

Replace all 3 condensers, as having the wrong coils fitted will almost certainly have damaged them. Pressure test the motor before stripping it, as this will determine exactly where the leak is, and will save an awful lot of work.

You will also find that bikes pretty dangerous in the turns, as moving the shock mounts and fork tubes, will have reduced ground clearance quite a bit, and will mean center stand, pipes, and footrests will all ground out very easily.

I thought the H1's were always CDI . Seem to remember the little lightening bolt under the CDI badge on the old refrigerator white tanked ones.

They were, even the 69 said Electric on the side cover meaning CDI. He is talking about replacing the pick up coils on the CDI he refers to them as condensers.

yeah, that's odd right there. But there is a gap, an air gap on those pick up coils.....and they can be cleaned.
