would this be equal to running a 16 counter shaft on a 41/42 or would this be just a tad higher
The 16/48 would give you about 6.25% higher gearing....it's close to the overall increase in the SR43 but just a touch more.....enough to probably feel. That ratio is probably best for motorways but then I don't see any of these bikes fitting in that niche.

That memory function is neat and a relief. Good that Fred remembers me! I saw the bike and was tempted but I need to save a few more pennies. Im thinking of another bike but one Karen can pillion on nicely. Thinking about finishing the 87 GPz750 off, finally.

Goodevening everyone!

Is there anyone who has the torque measurements for putting
together the cylinderhead?
I´m changing camshaft on the sr43. Anyone that has done the same?

And how about fuel consumption...will also change stock carbs to Flatslide.
Will consumtion increase much?

Thankful for any input!

Put piston at top dead centre and the set torque 6 to 8.5lb, there is a special sequence for tightening to but I have not a picture to put up for you. Don,t forget the ones with the special oil seel washers are the 4 in the middle.
Flatslide carbs if refering to TM 36 the ones HRT sell if racing in tight stuff 10klm,s per litre, and highway cruising 21klm,s per litre.

I went riding on the weekend and blew the left hand fork seal I pulled them out today and drained the oil and it was light grey and cloudy I am running ricor intiminators and 5 weight motul oil and they have not been in for long.

The grey stuff is usually worn bits off the bushings....pretty normal.

Bushings are easy to replace and should be considered in a bike of this age.....you'll still get grey stuff in the oil though.

Thanks Ray I thought it may be because the liter oil would be working harder with the intiminators compared to say 7 weight with the racetech emulators to get the same dampening and need changing more often ?

Hi guys,

Some time ago the tach stopped working. Hasn't bothered me much as I don't go that hard. Anyhow I also noticed that light in the tacho doesn't come on either. So I'm guessing that it is internal to the tach, not just something simple like the sender wire. Any suggestions?

I may replace the whole instrument cluster with a vapour trail tech or similiar. Any advice, tips, tricks etc before I go down this path?

Does the speedometer work?
I had to use the soldering iron to fasten the wires back to the ignition lock and and the speedo lights started working.

Hi,

Yes, the speedo and speedo light work. I have re soldered the wires on the back of the lock and added 5 cm length to each wire at the time. But this was some time ago and it is worth checking the wires again. I still may change to a trailtech so that I can put away the oem cluster, have a more modern look and more space to put hands and tools in that area when working on things like lights, wires etc.
