Looking forward to the new rebuild report.

Gorgeous bike.

I am looking forward to seeing the next incarnation, but I am sure you will understand if I never park my bike next to it.

Well Pyndon sent the engine yesterday from England and I was really hoping I'd be able to get it by the weekend so I could try to get it in the bike. I went to the shop today to try to finish putting together the cold saw I'm rebuilding and DHL rings the bell. Seriously?



Unbelievable. I can't get parts from Ohio in less two days but an engine from England comes overnight. Wow. I guess I know what I'll be doing this weekend.

Pyn says that this engine, coming from a 990SM is the same as the 990R spec which is supposed to be 20hp up from the standard bike. Well, we'll find out since we have our own dyno in the shop and I have runs from when my bike was running well. I'll simply swap the engine and do a pull and then we'll all know, once and for all, what the R engine does.

After that, and if I can financially recover, I'll order up some FCR's and we'll see before and after of the carbs since that's also a dyno run that seems to have never taken place. Finally, and if time permits, I'll redo my exhaust. That's a lot on my plate to try to do in 7 weeks before I move to Portland so we'll see what happens. It might be that the bike ends up staying here so I can finish work. I'm keeping my shop space and my studio so really I'm going bi-coastal and will travel back and forth.

Oh, and paint. I need to repaint the bike. Any suggestions? Flanny's looks freaking amazing which is good since it's so slow but I'd like some flash. Maybe bass boat metal flake orange?

Thanks Pyn! The second package didn't make it but the engine did so I'm sure it's right behind. Nice packing job too.

PS - The fender comes from Carbon-Performance. It's held up remarkably well for as light as it is.

Hi there,

I see you are making transplant surgery. If you are keeping the carbs, make sure you place the ignition gear on the new motor, so it runs with the 950 wiring.
Cheers.

do they use the same silicone for sealing joints?

muchas gracias


From Pyndon's thread to Cyborg's on sealing the rims. I'd used silicon for years but hated how thick it had to be and was excited to try Cyborgs method as I'm always glad to see an improvement to an idea. Here's his method: Here's the link to Cyborg's rim sealing.

So I went back and forth all day from the rim to the parts. Here's the first nipple sealed with the Seal All - looks good:



I did two coats but the stuff seams to bubble up as it dries which is strange but Cyborg mentions small bubbles are okay - I hope so:



By this time I'd done the whole wheel so I'm going to hope for the best and add the GOOP tomorrow and then let it sit for a day or so and by then my new Conti Attack will be here and I'll see if it worked. I'm looking forward to getting a 170/60-17 on that new rim.
