Should it include testing the vibration behavior of aftermarket mirrors ???  ::)

 :laughing4: It should include a test ride to see that everytjing is 100%


Every KLR rattles more ::)

Ok kewl well the rattle I found, there was a stripped thread and missing bolt on the left mirror/clutch mount which I assume I never came across because the previous mirrors were about 1/5th the weight. Will go replace the bolt & nut today.

Went past Suzuki south today to have them listen to the tapping sound the engine makes and they reckon its the shims/valves and the clutch basket might have a small rattle. Explained I was planning to do another 200 odd km's and change the oil again as well as check the clearances and they said that's perfect.

LeCap I assume I will bring it back to you for the first clearance check, or is your job warranty not an issue if I or some one else does it?

You can check the valve clearances yourself. It's quick and easy. As long as it gets done.
All valves were set just below max. allowed clearance and should still be there a few hundred kms later.

arg!

got the feeler gauge and every thing I needed.... well so I thought.

Just realized I need a special tool to remove the spark plug, any one know where I can get one or what will substitute?

Think I am going to have to run past LeCap tomorrow as this ticking sound isn't getting any better, im sure its getting worse o.O

Kewl so did the clearance check and its all close enough at this point

exhaust is 0.25mm (bang in the middle where it should be)
intake is 0.20 (right at the far end where it should be)

so I will ride it till the weekend, change the oil and filter and check them again. if the intake clearance grows at all its time to change the shims if it closes or is the same then its kewl.

I think I found the tapping rattle sound too, the auto decompression pin has a lot of play in it, both the large pin and the small are still there which is great. gonna start looking into solutions for that and untill I do I guess I will live with it

It would seem so.

Dont think LeCap knew about the diff spec, though wouldnt have expected him to.
