They measure
5 mm high
7 mm id at valve stem
10 mm id at valve guide

Just give me their phone number and contact info and I can take it from there. Honda Canada has said there are on back order till late Aug with no confidence. I'd sure like to button this up.

The valve seals were her within 2 weeks from England, pretty decent. Today out of sheer boredom I spent some time polishing the wheels, would have preferred to go with stainless spokes but can't find any. Sorry about the photo's but it does show the rust and the rust gone.







Geez I hate polishing

Lou machined my center spindle for the swingarm, the ends were pretty rusty and pitted so he undersized them a tad and made me new bronze bushings



Powdercoated swingarm today as well, hope to have a roller soon!


New tapered bearings for the steering head, ignore the dust that makes it look scratched.... it isn't

Glad you are enjoying it, I really didn't think I'd be back in the build so soon but when I touched the tools a few days ago my priorities shifted ... maybe just temporarily. Really should be doing 100 other "things".

More time building today, just bolting on accessories.





Still have to find a decent set of handle bars and find an alternative to the stock exhaust.... any ideas lads?

New wheel bearings and seals, the mosquitoes were absolutely brutal in the garage today! Got a roller out of it.

Another day in the shop, ignition switch on


pegs with new rubber on (loosely) center stand, side stand and rear brakes



rear fender cleaned up and installed


Front fender is going to take some more work, was supposed to be NOS but the mounts were different (of course) installed instrument mounts, headlight bucket.





Because these bars are bent and I just cant find a suitable replacement I'm taking them to Lou's shop and let him perform his magic.


I'd sure like to find new instrument rubbers..... anyone have some to sell?



I'm continually amazed at how much time it takes to put it back together.

These are from my "needs some lovin" collection.





I am going to have to slow down on the build and get some more parts in while I wait for my valve guide to be machined.

Found out I had a bent valve.... sheesh

excuse # 362 for slowing down on the build is the garage is full and my wife wouldnt let me take over her side :shock: so I needed to get some "alternate storage"

At work we had a left over shipping crate that had 13' walls, I figured it would only take a little work and a little cash to make this into a perfect shed, boy was I wrong.... turned out the wall sections were only 6'6" high and adding on to them in snow country like here was not a good idea so I only got to use 1 wall section (back wall) that had no truss bearing, kinda sort.

Here's progress shots took about 2 weeks all in all.

slab


experienced wall section


framed, facia and soffits done


and door and siding on


I am going to have to push the CL in there for a bit as I need to bore and stroke my KTM before winter and get it broken in, meanwhile I have a nos valve coming and wanted to assemble and ride it before the snow falls but it doesn't look like it's gonna happen. On the upside is I have something to do for the winter.

Talk about scope creep

That takes it to another level.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about project management. For the firearms use, see telescopic sight.
Scope creep (also called requirement creep) in project management refers to uncontrolled changes or continuous growth in a project'sscope. This phenomenon can occur when the scope of a project is not properly defined, documented, or controlled. It is generally considered a negative occurrence, and therefore should be avoided.
Typically, the scope increase consists of either new products or new features of already approved product designs, without corresponding increases in resources, schedule, or budget. As a result, the project team risks drifting away from its original purpose and scope into unplanned additions. As the scope of a project grows, more tasks must be completed within the budget and schedule originally designed for a smaller set of tasks. Accordingly, scope creep can result in a project team overrunning its original budget and schedule.
If the budget and schedule are increased along with the scope, the change is usually considered an acceptable addition to the project, and the term “scope creep” is not used.
Scope creep can be a result of:Scope creep is a risk in most projects. Most megaprojects fall victim to scope creep (see Megaprojects and Risk).[citation needed] Scope creep often results in cost overrun. A value for free strategy is difficult to counteract and remains a difficult challenge for even the most experienced project managers.

Yup, check... in the end it probably cost me enough to do the CL and the next build.
