Slowly

Currently have no shed to work in so I have to do my work in the yard and the weather is, let's say, unsupportive...

Btw, you were right, the hex in the statorcover plug is a really shitty fit, it's not metric

Thanks.


Its a XR650R can.In fact its the original size, but its the different mounting points makes it come out a lot more. Because this engine was built for supermoto, i didnt cut the exhaust or i would loose power on the top end.

Emphasis on 'supposed'

My 10mm Allen wrench disagrees.

Is it a used, wallowed out cap?

Mt Snap On 10mm, 3/8" drive socket works just fine on all of the bikes that have come through here.

It is used, yes.

Wouldn't say wallowed out, but the corners have a little bit of damage, apparently that makes the difference then.

Ohwell, still better than the previous one

CAPTAIN? jejeje
Yeah actually, now I remember I'm pretty sure he was in Brisbane too. Seeing as how I've only found one mob who would bore it for me, I hope it's not the same ones as benno h used!

Of course this is all theoretical if I end up going with that one of steves...we'll see.

Cheers for the discussion,

John

Haha, well clearly you've never met me Christian!

Bummer you have to sell your bike mate. I just got off mine - only rode to the shops (hasn't seen dirt in over a year )

I'm still not sure what the go was with the machinist. He swore black and blue that he machined all forged pistons (and he sells both Wossner and Wiseco) to 1 thou I think, or 1.5. And the marks on the piston weren't really consistent with a tight bore.

The bottom end bearings were definitely routed, as to how much that contributed to the meltdown, I dunno.

Anyway, the old girl is still running great - even after sitting under the house for months she'll start 2nd kick. Clutch is starting to slip a bit though. I put a new headlight and seatcover on a while ago too:


And that melted Wossner and the matching rod are a garage ornament now ;-)

Royal,

You don't offroad anymore do you?

I have an Acerbis front fender that needs sanding and painting, if you're willing to pay shipping.

I can get PM you some pictures if you want

this model, its a bit stubby at the front, which I like over the pointy end most of the sumo fenders have. :)

So,

I allmost don't want to ask this.. I know its been asked a zillion times, but all I read is people arguing on what is right...

I have a COURSE spline countershaft.


this model.

My sprocket has a flat side and a side with a lump..

which side goes outwards??

I have it set OUT-wards at the moment, the rear sprocket/chain/front sprocket/ seem to align pretty good..
