I assume that means the cover itself as well right?

Got any pics? I've assembled my engine twice recently following the book exactly and didn't use any red loctite but I may not have had to remove what you are talking about. I used Hondabond 4 for the cases and valve cover and really liked working with it. I used a small paint brush from my kids watercolors to apply it and it worked great.

My engine is really far from stock and I had already blown one stock crank/rod combo so I look at it as a preemptive strike.

yes the aluminum will wear faster than the steel parts you are measuring in the picture above.
I can see that your pressure side gear rotor has had quite a bit of particulate matter go through it and that will wear the case, so a new gear rotor can be sloppy in a old case.
Honda also recommends replacing the oil pump with the case 1/2 as a set.
Also look at the filter cover for wear.

Got a new (used in great shape) case and have all the bearings pulled out, steam cleaned and sparkling, just sent out the crank for a press and balance with new rod, re nikasil the cylinder, hard face weld the rockers, and a valve job replacing everything. Also throwing in a hot cams stage 1 and cutting out the rear side panel so she'll breathe better



One question Ive got after cleaning and inspecting the oil pump today is should I be worried about the pump if both sides are at their service limits? I plan on replacing the parts after the build up but am I going to see any significant loss in pressure for cam break in, some short runs, etc, the service limit is .008 and its a real snug fit?

hey man,on gour SE Asia trip,did you happened to dropby Singapore for a.set of tyres?

Anyone have the parts list for when the stock hand guards are removed. it is different bolts and bushings. I can't find it to save my life.

I remember seeing it somewhere....

Sorry guys I didnt make my last post to clear. What threadlocker or sealant should I use on these guys? http://i.imgur.com/s0vyo5m.jpg

I know the one all the way to the right had red threadlocker on it. The others I am not too sure of. The sealant and/or threadlocker was sort of dark grey colored. I want to use the right stuff so hopefully I never have to pull off this damn crankcase cover for a few years.

Got beat up today. Rode ~18 miles to the trails, met up with a couple woods racer buddies. We rode 30 grueling miles of very technical singletrack, then rode the ~18 miles home. I have over 400 miles on the bike since I bought it a month ago. I saw a big group of dual sport riders in the parking lot, they thought I was nuts riding with the ktm 300 and crf in the tight singletrack




The covers were almost perfect when I got them, giving them mutch needed wear. My boots do not have a metal tip either

I managed to detach 2 turn signals today

Figure $150 for the kit, roughly another $90 for the labor rebuilding the crank plus shipping, about $300 total plus brgs, seals and gaskets, I'd est about $450 total for going into it and fixing the crank if you split the cases yourself.
