Hi, yes, I've got one. No its not for sale. Pics here:

Was it a good buy? It was OK, but be aware that the tank cover does cover the whole tank. It also spreads your knees apart, especially when standing. If you are after if for tank protection, its AOK. If you are after it for the places for a bagster bag, its OK too, but a better tank bag with straps might be the way to go.

Regards,

Shane

Some pictures of the rear brake footpeg extension I've made up. Really happy with the way it looks. Hopefully it will work well.

Gasket replacement

Hello everyone,

I have just received my new head (mls) and base (single layer) gaskets. Should I spray them with anything (like a copper based spray?) or just clean the surfaces thoroughly and put them on and torque everything to specification?

Thanks

I have never sprayed them. Always used original top and base gaskets. Torque the bolts to specs, then wait a few minutes and retighten.

Hi there,
I'm lucky to announce that Miss Marlboro is up and barking again! The engine, rebuilt by Lars, is re-installed and all the little things around it are mostly refitted, just a few things to be done. Re-mounting of fairing, tank- and engine-guards, side-panels and sealing of the oil-filter-cover. Looks like a new o-ring is necessary at that point. But that's no problem, there are shops here with such an amount of them that they sell them ...
Nice regards, lucky Bambi

because i('m) wan(gon)na fit a shiny aluminum swingarm on my dr800 1990...

yeah well, some are lucky some are not... the owners house burnt down and they sold the rest of the ´´damaged´´ inventory... so i came there for work to buy some fine pieces out of the inventory [i´m a picker]... and than i saw her i almost said what i wanted to pay seen-on-sight, and that was like 800 to a 1000... he said 400 and i got a spare engine with it for 50 bangerss i was familiar with the bike so... with all the rest it was my best day ever... EVER!... 3 months later in Germany bmw R100gs PD ´95 original 34k-km... 1100 quid! i pissed myself back home so happy i was! but he, some are lucky some are not... [i felled flat on my face many many times more] but is funny to tell this story..

Glad to hear that Bambi, I know that feeling of a fresh engine barking to life!

I just finished assembling my bike yesterday and took a short test ride of 50kms, didn't have too much time. To be honest I was surprised it fired up immediately and worked so well with so many mods. I was expecting a lot of hassling with jetting etc. But it was running strong throughout the revs. With new cam and fresh piston I did not push it to the limits yet. I will do some jetting and mileage tests in next few days as soon as time permits.

Mods done:
new piston 106mm,
redesigned air intake (cut the intake opening of stock filter larger just like Rob and Ray experimented).
SR43A camshaft
Lars' oversize header
GSXR muffler
130 main jets
needles raised 1 notch
45 pilot jets
taillight, indicators, handguards
