So anyway I thought I might treat myself to a little foreigner and press my liner out of the cylinder.



100 ton press is a little over the top, but hey that all we got at work, so thats what we used.
Oh and she was a little tight, tighter then a Nun's naughty. We sent the ram down until it touched and gave it a few little taps until the press bed took the load and that it did. The pump note changed and the pressure rose quickly on the gauge as I chickened out and back it off. As all my employees looked at me and said "Fogo you sure that is spose to come out?".
"I dunna know". I replied in a dumb voice.
Ok everyone behind the wire. Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzz, Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, Fark, Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, I'll just get a bit more behind this coloum, Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzz

BANG.


Crikey, that was tight. Liner fell out and landed on the ground. All looks pretty good. No electrolises on the inside of the barrel. So I can get new STD bore OEM liners from the States for $90, what a bargin. To recoat a nikisil bore is about $450 to 600. So this is the best way to go for Team KLX. The cast steel liners seem to handle the lugging of a heavily loaded bike better than the chrome bores. The steel liners dont seem to use oil.





Anyway I'm going to bed, and if your reading this post at this hour of the morning it must be cause your a soft cock and went to bed early last night.
Cheers Fogo...

I have always ran a couple of welds up the inside of the liner, it helps it to come out easier and reduces the chance of damage to the parent bore. To install the new one I use dry ice the shrink the liner and it will usually go in with no effort

Your right podge, I am a diesel mechanic and with diesel engines with dry liners that is correct. being a wet liner I knew that it would come out. As for install, heat the barrel up with a heat gun and put the liner in the freezer for a few hours, detergent on the liner orings and push, and in it slips like a finger in a bum.

Been a bit bored waiting for parts for the engine , so I thought I would attack the wiring behind the headlight as it was a mess, everytime I added a new accessary I would just wire in another inline fuse and it was a bloody shit fight.
So I cut everything out and rewired in an 8 fuse Narva fuse box. Turned out alot tidier.

I have the same/similar indicators on my DRZ and have been having a really good run with them... at $3 each on ebay, I've been very impressed (considering I used to spend over $20ea on indicators that would fall apart or just stop working.)

Just look up LED indicators under the motorcycle parts & accessories.

Now I see why you were talking about GPZ900 cams and the like. I think the only time I saw less than triple figures on the speedo when when you stopped to open the gate!

Nice work!
