...I thought I would load my plate up some more, with yet another addition to the stable.







I have a feeling that all that plastic will be coming off...but before I start that, there's the engine to tackle. Now at some point in its life it's been dropped on the right hand side, which in turn pulled the front of the barrel away from the engine, stripping the thread. Apparently it's had a heli-coil fitted, but this has since failed, which could mean Tig welding, drilling and tapping a new thread.

Needless to say this could take a while to sort out..this is how it looks on the bike at the moment...




I'll post up a pic with the barrel off...when I get time to take it off.

Cheers Ben depending on the engine it could be fun or frustrating, I'm hoping it's the former.

Enthusiasm is fairly high at the moment (possibly due to not actually trying to undo anything yet) but if I get to the point of wanting to shoot it...I'll let you know

Nice one Dan.
I can see the makings of a nice bike there, fairings etc removed and turned into a desert sled or dakaresque machine.
BTW Have you thought of a timesert for the head studs?
Bloody good bits of kit, with a proper anchoring system.

Thought of them... I hadn't even heard of them until you posted. Are Time-Serts better than Heli-Coils

Better by far, they are a solid threaded insert.
They aren't cheap, however if you can find someone local who has the kit it shouldn't be too bad.

These time-serts , I am sure they use them for threaded spark plug holes too? so they must be very good / pressure resistant? Most engineering shops can do it I believe
