Just days to Road America and I am only this far..........
Look at that 3/4 gear cluster wear, where the shift fork rides....
Apparently the bike still shifted great?
New gears, new shift forks, all new spacer washers in between the gears and new circlips...... then new wrist pins, main and rod bearings, old pump rotors, piston rings, a rigid hone, valve job and on and on and on.......
Besides getting the engine all together and installed, I still have fork seals, tires, the newly refreshed shock and new chain/sprockets to get on......oh and rebuild the front brake calipers.gee no pressure on myself (oh and 1/2 the parts just arrived yesterday at about 2pm.....)
This thing should have 10+hp more than it did last year?!?
full exhuast from stock, blended valve job with seat diameters matching valve diameters, decked .012", cam timing, and everything fresh.
All it takes is money and time and this thing is eating plenty of both...
fyi. this is a 6800 track mile engine since I had it apart last.......I do not think those rod bearings would have made it much past about 7500 miles and that shifting had to have been spotty at best
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
