Did the valve lash again yesterday - jirre but those tolerances are small and the space in there is tight. Just as well the feeler is so thin otherwise you would struggle to get it in! I bought two Wurth ones from Welsh some time back and have trimmed the one a bit narrower and it now has developed an nice little curve at the end ... works sweet  :thumleft:  

Also got to the steering head bearings ... mission yes to drop forks etc but had been on my mind. I was actually very impressed by the bearings - both condition and appearance. They are well made (did not notice a brand) and have very good dust covers. Have washed them out and repacked. Only very very slight wear on the race at the bottom on the rear side where they always get the most wear on bikes. So good to go.

Thinking maybe while all apart up front of getting 'sidetracked' and doing an alanB type instrument plate.  ::)

I have read some just forego the paper gaskets and put some silicone sealant only. I'm not a big fan however as it always seems to squeeze out the sides and could land up in the oil pump.

Yeah also read that somewhere but like you not a fan of the stuff if I can help it. Also really most of it gets squeezed out ... and inside too!
I find a gasket just makes more sense. Also if you have ever had to scrape that kak off a machined surface without scratching it and stripping your m@4r you will avoid it... especially if it is every time you do the valve lash!

Silicone make a very good seal, some car manufacturers assemble their engines without gaskets at all, but each to his own, I also detest getting the sh#t off when you have to take a cover off. Doesn't leak oil though! If you use silicone on one side and lightly oil the other face it comes off easily and you don't have to scrape it off, just put the cover back afterwards.
If you want to make your own gaskets, another method is to use a hardwood mallet and tap the gasket out on the actual casing by just lightly tapping at an angle inside and out. Works really cool with thinnish gasket paper.

Ja I have used silly cone before - I have generally not torqued it at first and let it sit over night to cure before putting final pressure on ... seems to allow a slightly thicker coating. Still I like a gasket - old school works.

Sm flooded today after I switch off after a stoppie.

Would not start... not even running start.

Eventually started after a bit of a fiddle here and there. Is it common for it to flood so quickly?

No mine has been on it's side a couple of times and through some mean offroad terrain and no flooding  ???

Next time open the throttle 100% and give it 3 or 4 swings and then start it normally with the throttle closed.

Hi, anyone got info on timing chains and adjustments.  Reading the manual says adjustment required after 10000km and 20000km.  Mine seem to be making a bit of noise at the moment.

Lots of info on Cafe Husky and Thumpertalk. Sounds like yours does not have the auto adjust tensioner unless they are just saying check at 10 and 20k? Many end up replacing the auto adjust CCT on the later models with a manual adjust anyway(APE is the preferred brand). What model is yours? If it is the ACCT you pull it and count the clicks out on the shaft to determine how stretched the chain is 10-11 clicks is time to replace chain. Remember these bikes are naturally a bit noisy by some standards.

Hi Dom, thanks for info will check this evening and see if adjustment is required. When are you riding in the  EL area. I would also like to see the airboxotomy.

I think the Castrol Power1 was R89 per litre at the local Midas.

Do you get it in 15w60? Or is the 10w50 OK?

Hi Chopper pilot

Saw your bike at Rough Rider when I went to look at his KDX. All I can say is  :drif:.
Have you got your bike yet?
