R65 valves clear the r45 bore, but some shrouding that hopefully will flycut out.....

Engine now has R45 top end.....
I figuring this is bad.... looks like it ran like that for a while.

It's alright cos I had a look at my bike. The cylinders are lined up opposite each other so they had to offset the conrods to suit. They quite often bent them if they didn't fit right

Pulled out the Boyer ignition and fitted an Ignitech.

crank fired pick up, note typical Electrician wiring....

CPU mounted well away from sparks....hopefully not too near water spray....

My mate knocked me up some brackets for the two 12 volt coils.
Was going to go dual plug but not at moment so second output is earthed.

It works straight out of the box ( eventually) all you need to do is get the pickup lined up.
plug in the USB and the pc selects the port,
I've set it up for 15 degrees of advance at idle and 30 degrees after 3000 RPM.
Cool feature is being able to have a soft rev limiter as with the 336 cam its pulling past 7500 RPM.
I've yet to ride it so its work in progress.....
If I was doing it again I'd have the pickup plate slotted so it rotated as setting the rotor is a pita.

Nice thread!

I am curious about the Ignitech.

How well is the CPU sealed?

Do you know of any units that have been in service for very long? I am wondering about the long term reliability.

Any other observances about it's suitability for a Street bike?

Sorry Les , can't answer any of your questions as not familiar with it, Google suggests that its better than a stock Ducati unit

My Motobins order.....
It seemed to be taking a while so I asked MB for the tracking number, which they supplied.
Entered it and it said 5 days from MB to HELD in NZ....
That was a week ago....so where is my usual letter demanding the tax due....
You ring customs and unless you have a number from NZ Post you are directed to NZ Post to get one.....
Rang NZ Post and they gave me a new number....
Rang customs and they said it was yet another tracking number.....but whats your name etc....
So they can do it without the letter and a number.....( lots of Good Afternoons and thank you's help)
$200 dollars later its free.....
Checked it this morning and its " in progress"
About an hour later it arrived.
Letter will arrive next week I suppose......
Not allowed to open box till I get retaining wall posts done...

Ignitech is the Ignition system you are using.

Yes it is, quite easy to set up once you have resistor plugs, I have seen a kit on a German site for running on a road bike.
Whole set up was around $400 US including twin plug coils that I am only using one output on.

Unpacked my MB box of bits and it was all there so this morning pulled off the R100 mufflers I was going to try out.... then the rearsets and clutch actuator and hey presto the box was out.
Last couple of outings there was a touch of clutch slip on my S/H clutch that had oil on it....I brakecleened it but Pommy John said it was a waste of time....and he knows stuff.

so new clutch, HD pressure plate, lower FD,longer Ex Thruxton IKONS and Norton mufflers and she will be good for Taupo in two weeks

jeez you guys suck

I half arsed cleaned my timing cover then left in out on the rain to finish the job off.

When I get the fastest R65 in NZ working I will be purloining ONE of your many mufflers.

It probably will be the fastest as I have taken off my Norton ones...they even sound fast

Bugger me, It is in more bits than a certain Triumph I know of. Waiting for bits before Winston goes back together, Taupo is a definite maybe. The Barry Sheene weekend for sure.

BMW's were designed by an engineer not a marketing dept...
I should have it all together by the weekend, if you want a hand next weekend give me a shout.
