so mines borked again, have yet ti get the official prognosis though so far its looking like its seized?  O.o!?

Picked it up after having had a full service, shims; cam chain; oil change etc etc. started fine and rode fine, there was a "once per rotation" clanking type sound at idle... after about 5km's it stuttered as tough it had run out of fuel, I was most of the way through the tank so I didn't think any thing of it. Pulled the bike over turned it off, switch the fuel tap to res, and start her up. Wouldn't start! sounded like the battery was dead.

So after having trailered it to Andy's work shop we started testing stuff (tx Andy) hooked a battery pack up and tried again, got it to start though it wouldn't run by itself, wouldn't idle etc. Checked the oil and it was all full and fine. Eventually we measure the battery which was fine.... took the spark plug out and tried to get the motor to turn over without the plug in without any luck. So far it seems like something has cause it to seize.

So my question is what could cause it to seize? something that didn't make any god awful noises, was missed during a full service, the bike has had two oil changes since I have owned it and has sown any metal fillings. Guess I should wait and see what Lecap finds when he pulls it apart, just getting restless I guess.

=\

Jeez...i feel for you mate! Not good.

Its actually the base gasket... (The one under the cylinder/barrel)

E has 1 gasket

S/SM has 3 layer gasket, basically 3x E-gaskets...

Therefore the higher stock compression for E model.

more gaskets (of the same thickness) will lower the compression not raise it

the fatter the gasket the lower the compression - the thinner the higher the compression  :thumleft:

At the time I tuned the bike when it belonged to you, we got to a perfect AFR, however when Etienne said he was experiencing a problem on it I offered him to bring the bike so I could check(f.o.c.) Checking the AFR it showed up lean on the pilot circuit which we rectified by changing the pilot and needle adjustment (NOT THE MAIN JET). This could be due to a couple of reasons...Exhaust needs repacking, air filter, valve clearances etc. Changing motor and weather conditions could greatly affect AFR.

Does my exhuast need repacking? Or just that perforated pipe mod?
