i'll have to check that out. when I replaced the tank a few months ago the seal looked ok, but I'll have to look again.

650R head bolt torque

Hey guys, almost ready to start installing piston an head on my 650R and question is when torqueing down the head should I torque down the head in 10 FT pound increments or go half way as I work up to the 49 ft lbs it states in the manual. Do I need to go all the way to 49 ft lbs? Seems like a lot of torque. One more thing, does anyone know of a muffler other than stock that does not require having to repack the thing every so often? Thanks in advance.

Some people never repack the exhaust , it gets louder and you might loose some power but nothing major will happen , i like to repack mine now and again just to keep it as quiet as possible .

I had read somewhere that it needed the back pressure to run properly is all.

Does anyone know if a R&D Flex Jet Fuel Mixture Screw will work on a Mikuni TM40? I'm assuming it will but I figured one of y'all would know for sure.

Evening! I just got done rebuilding my 650R and torqued the head to 49 ft/lbs no problem. I first torqued to 30 pounds and then went to 49.

Speaking of remote screw thingys that go on carbs, anyone have a remote idle screw for a edelbrock carb, I'm still mad edelbrock stopped making that stuff.

just got done installing new bearings in some of the rear linkages. advice: don't let the shock linkage sit in the 10 degree garage for hours before you try to press in the bearings or install the oil/grease seals, it won't work. thankfully i'm smart enough to know my error right away instead of forcing things. freeze the bearings and heat or warm up the linkage. that's all.

edit: oh ya, anybody have any recent reviews on the tusk brand clutch kit? recent mistakes have taken a toll on my funds.

i believe I replaced mine when I did it. I didn't want to take that chance. However, they are some pretty tough bolts, I think you would be more likely to pull out threads than snap a bolt.

For what they cost, i will replace them. God forbid pulling the threads out of the cases.

Not so scary now that we have Time-serts. They are a whole lot nicer to use than the heli-coils.

if the bolts are still in the case, why not leave them? if you are replacing them because you are worried the case threads will let go, then the bolts are not the issue, right? steel bolts vs aluminum case. bolts will win.
