I have to change the pickup ring right? I have to put in the 950 ring since it will be carbureted.

Thanks,

I was planning on doing the same with an engine that I had which just sold until I just picked up a 950 that had 990 cams in it with 39mm carbs...

I have to get the fucking nut off the clutch first. I'm not going to do it sitting here though.

I find that if you sit and stare at it long enough...

I just pulled several times on it with a long bar, almost had an aneurism. Some fucking Schwarzenegger mechanic must have put it on.

I'm going to set it on the floor and get real in a minute after I recover.

It's not reverse threads is it?

"Its a normal nut, righty tighty and lefty loosy (hopefully the same for the RC8).

First time I had that nut off I had the bike laying on its side and hight gear and locked the rear wheel with a strap around the frame. Had tried both electric and air impact tools, ended up with a very long extension on the wrench and had to lay on the floor holding my feet against the bike to stop it from rotating BANG, first thought the wrench snapped but it was the nut coming undone."

I'm thinking now of a total rebuild.
You can use your carbs and wiring on a 990.

There have been FI engines converted to carbs.

Look on the HOW, simple matter of swapping a tooth ring.

That's what I'm doing. It is simple, but getting that nut off wasn't easy.

I ended up using some leg power.

I just installed the trigger wheel and I'm putting it back together. I'm waiting on the big gasket to come it so no hurry.

Thanks,
Tom

Cool!
let us know how it turns out! what rig is this going into? 2004 ADV?
I would imagine that nut sees some heat so it can likely get 'welded' in pretty good...

Yeah, I'm putting it in an 04 Adventure.

I got the trigger wheel and the clutch installed. I'm going to check the valves and then put the side cover back on next and then install the engine.

I'm thinking the long pole will be those carburetors. I have no idea how they are jetted or what they should be for the 990. Those $1500 sure would be sweet but that is what I paid for the entire motorcycle.

I'm going to clean it good tomorrow and take it slow, don't want to get in a hurry.

Jetting

I'm getting there.

I'm going to put the put the carbs, oil tank and radiator on Monday.

I got the Sporting Wood air filter and jet kit with stock mufflers for now.

What jets should I use for 8-900' msl?

I know it's on here somewhere but I can't find it.

Thanks
