  2. In Topic: Lowered Squish - Lost 1,000 Rpm Somewhere. Normal?

    The lower the squish band the less it will rev. It can't be 'fixed' without machining the head as stated above.

    Not really worth it unless you have deep pockets.

    Sorry for the old thread resurrection!

    IIRC the workshop manuals balance shaft is 180 degrees out of correct alignment.

    It states TDC when it should be BDC, or the other way around. Opposite to the piston position in either case. Easy fix.

    Sounds like you need to work over all the connectors on the bike with contact cleaner. You'll probably find some green corrosion on the pins which is causing the back feeds and lack of correct function.
  5. In Topic: Oil In Fuel After Rebuild?

    06 January 2020 - 11:11 PM

    If you have rebuilt the top end without flushing out the bottom end you will get debris transfer from the bottom end to the top and you'll bugger up your new parts.

    Best to rebuilt it all really as a seize will put a lot of strain on the big & little end bearings and con rod.

    Bleed the oil pump and put a very small amount of oil in the bottom end on the first run, no need for premix as that's what the auto-lube pump is for but its up to you.
