Completely took it apart to include bearings in the engine cases. Only thing I did not do is pull the gears off the main and counter shaft.

That image shows the difference that lapping the valves made.

I put new tires on it yesterday and rode it like I stole it today!







She ran good for most of the ride. Still has a surging problem off pavement. 2nd gear, 25 mph, 3-3500 rpm, it surges big time. Doesn't do it on pavement. I suspect dirty fuel filters. Oh joy!

Cracked case needed to be welded. When welded the case gasket got damaged and had to be split to be fixed. 60 K plus on the bike so I went ahead and rebuilt a few things.

Story here...



Edit: 205'd on my own thread.

Oh right, I forgot that was you! I've poked my head in on that thread a few times. I'll bookmark it and read up if/when I get closer.
