Cool2 Faaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrkkkkkkkk Oooooooorrrrrrrffffffffffff

Now let's stamp out this insubordination right from the start. Granted, my use of asterisks may sometimes resemble the frantic footprints of an overladen bee that recently stood in ink, but I've taken the time to go back & check correct attribution & usage* and, lets just say that I'm not the one that had to edit their post to insert the 'fag' explanation

Here are some spare sets of asterisks: * ** *** **** ***** ******
Here are some spare blanks:

Please print these out and glue them to your screens each time you read my posts, to correct any unfortunate mistakes on my part...


* Not because it matters, but because I listen to the concerns of my customers

Is there an emoticon for WIN?

This means that I don't have to tear apart the b/can PJ handed over, and it can stay intact & come back to you dear fellow-me-chappy. Having had a closer look at it I have, however, worked out why the plug on the lead has round contact pins rather than the usual flat. It's a 79-80 points can fitted with what seems to be a piranha optical sensor to trigger the piranha control box that you also have. The advance system seems to still be in place.

The conversation with Motorworks took quite some time, as we wandered around the subject of airheads, but we ended on a very interesting subject, which was putting an oilhead engine into an airhead chassis, g/box & transmission. Hmmmmm...

PIP PI!?!

* There is no single asterisk reference in the text, please stick a line of blank spaces over this line.

RE: STD1

And so it begins. Acres of fairing to be repaired & tarted up*. If I could get this whole 'Insert pic' rather than attach 1 file malarky going I'd show you a few of the horrendous bits to be sorted. After all that's done the final issue is about paint. What to do, what to do...

There's about 80k miles of wear, stonechips, bad repairs & droppage. And after it's patched there'll be little or no chance of matching those areas into the overall finish. But to get any kind of quality outcome means rubbing the whole thing down & recovering the whole thing... Mind you, as it stands it matches the frame


* **
** You'll need to stick a blank space over these I'm afraid.

Well, to be honest, the ex-wife had a man in to do her decking. He followed her all the way back from New Zealand to do the decking. When I told her what he really wanted to do, she acted all shocked and surprised, the way ex-wives do, and I was able to take the pleasure of transmitting the 'fuck off vibe' to him in a satisfactory manner. Then I did the decking. Yeah, I know.

Anyway, I'm glad you like the decking. That pic above, of the fairing, looks really good. Do the rest by tomorrow and we'll say no more about it.

Re the oilhead engine + trans in an airhead frame, well....I did a bit of research and guess what? It seems that the oilhead blocks (850's and 1100's) are the same, as are the con-rods and camshafts, thereby offering up the possibility of forking around with jug-swaps etc. I just thought you should know...........

He was talking about mating an oil engine to the a/head trans. We talked about the similarity in the clutches, their inline-ness, g/box to engine mating plates, engine mounting plates, and no bottom hoops/added top trellis type frame mods to take advantage of the top front mount? His general position was that rather than modding the bollocks out of an airhead chasing power, one could just stick in an already beefy oil engine. It bears thinking about during the inevitable 'what the fuck am I going to do now' moment I will no doubt have 10 minutes after we've finished the current 'projects'.

Just as a matter of interest.

Can you clarify your sleeping pattern for us.?

This should also help in reading some of your posts in the correct context.

The correct context is me, in a shed, in the middle of the night trying to hammer quietly

I could give you a sleep diary if it helps? Mainly I'm built night/day not day/night, but having 'worked' in the 'entertainment'* 'industry 30 odd years you end up the 'wrong' way round** because you're working in other peoples leisure time.

For what it's worth I've always been an insomniac, but I've worked out it's because I live in the wrong timezone. Here I'm always up late & down late, whereas whenever I'm in Barbados I'm lined up with what is generally considered day/night pattern. My doctor obviously needs to prescribe me a beachfront chattel house in Cattlewash, on the east coast , away from people who dislike late night/early morning hammerage.

Once on a 'copter flight up along Little Scotland as they call that part of the island, I spied an abandoned holiday complex. 50m pool, chalet blocks etc. Waaaaaay overgrown and ripe for conversion to 'Palace with associated workshops & dirt track'. Unfortunately I couldn't find any reference in Bajan law to squaters rights...

Right now I'm sitting here having breakfast @ lunchtime, waiting for the last parts to arrive before starting the DMW engine build. Engine is in frame but shifted forward, I need to get the clutch in & squeeze in the gearbox, shift the engine/gearbox back & mount it***, bolt up the UJ, get the pistons/barrels back on, heads & rockers, rebuild the carbs with new needles & bigger jets****, get them on etc. If I'm lucky the Boyer modded b/can will arrive at the same time & I could be ready to press the start button somewhere around 3.17am local time. Then I will wait... & wait, and be 'considerate' and wait some more etc.... 8.30am isn't an unreasonable time to fire up a straight thru exhaust boxer is it?



* Untertainment
** Or most likely were already & thus fell into that work?
*** Ooh Matron!?!
**** 175 or 180 on 40mm Bings with a K&N & short pipes. Although the plug colour had always been what I consider good, I'm guessing it was running lean & hot? Contributory to the big end failure When it went the oil temp was something toward 160 - 180?

When I say contributory, it's clear the remaining % was contributed by me myself I.

The summer shed...

You can go too far, you know! (sniff) Anyway, the sun's shining (just like the gorgeous finish on the frame) and I'm just about to do the bevel seal.....

You don't originate fro' roun' these 'ere paaaarts, so you may not have been initiated into the more obscure mysteries of local lingo, my duck! The phrase 'Whatto' has a fine & complex nuance which cannot be directly translated into the Bradfordshire tongue, but it roughly translates as 'I confirm my utter outrage that a third party has questioned my use of asterisks', and is therefore wholly appropriate within the setting.

Regarding the frame, no insult was intended, I was simply pointing out my deep respect for your uncanny & expert ability to match the frame paint to an 80,000 mile old fairing, thus producing a holistic cosmetic unificationism of surface treatmentage

Laugh

This is the abandoned Bajan camp I mentioned. I never found out for sure what it used to be, who owned it or why it was derelict, but anyway, do please feel free to buy it for my birthday...

Eh? Hang on...

RE:DMW

Ok, so a type 1 gearbox, clutch actuation mechanism & clutch pushrod does work with a light flywheel clutch right?*

Tell me it does, because after the installation adjustments the clutch lever is so light it's either brilliantly perfect or not working properly I can't be sure until I can turn the engine from the back wheel, and disengage the clutch, and I can't do that until the 'jugs' (as they're so delightfully referred to here) are tightened down, and I can't do that until I get some more sealant. I had a tube a day or two ago, and put it aside for this stage of the engine build, and now... I think I am perhaps old enough now to use the phrase 't'was ever thus'.

Some miles from here a man is frantically trying to log onto ADV with little or no success. Poor sod

Edit: * No.
