Fix it right. Get rid of the squeek in your crank.

Wet sanding? i used a small flat file to make sure that i cleaned it up evenly and did so until i could no longer feel any unevenness in the surface, though i will note i could see the aluminium was slightly discoloured. I am unsure why it was darker, perhaps it was because the surface had been "worked" by the plates a little.

For the curious i had only taken about 0.25mm off each surface and that has gone a long way to fixing the stuttering i got from this up.

yep flat file to the clutch basket is the answer. File those grooves out and it will be fine. Its not a fix per say but a bandaid. The notching will come back after a while as it seems like when you file it you file away the hard anodizing. But it will work just fine...till it doesnt anymore. But I doubt youll get enough miles on this to have to worry about that. File away!

Not sure if you've figured this out yet or not but all those little plastic gears on the right side are for the oil injection pump, I would bypass it before running and just mix it yourself, could be one reason that piston looks like it does because they are known to fail quite often.

Also i'm not sure how many but lots of those parts will interchange from one model to another, and even the dime a dozen banshee 350 shares lots of internals with those old bikes, may be a really good way to save some money on crank and pistons.

one thing I just thought of. I used to have a Banshee years back. One thing I used to see on mine and others from time to time that was a tell tale sign of an internal problem is fowling the RH plug ie coughing/sneezing out the RH silencer. Its a bad crank seal. Seal goes out and sucks tranny oil in via the clutch side. The LH side is dry. So if its killing the RH plug it probably needs new seals.

Just dropped by to demand a progress report but read that little tidbit on the first post. Carry on lads.

Shit. Well, we all hope to be farther than we actually are, right?

Where I'm at:
I just started reassembly on the motor,
but had some fun with my new media blaster on the cases first.



Started to put the transmission in
when I noticed on of the bearings was quite notchy.
Most parts places carry it for $55, but I googled the part #
and found this awesome website called boats.net
who sells the part for $35.
Also had all my seals for ~$2 cheaper each than other dealers,
great prices - though I haven't gotten my parts yet.

Crank is out to Lyn Garland,
who was recommended by some here
and several on other 2 stroke sites.
Should have my crank back in a week with all new shit glistening on it.

This turned out to be quite a slow start for the both of us,
but hopefully that will end soon.
Bulletproof just bought his first house,
and I'm finishing up my last semester of grad school.

Soon to come, the limiting factor won't be time and money anymore,
but just money.

Is it just my eyes and a bad pic or did you really sand blast all those bearing surfaces?

Your funny. I just bought a new house last fall. Have you seen how much progress I have made on my BSA this winter..Ummm yea.... like zilch. That house has sucked every spare second of my time away.

But good luck with it

Hell I didn't just buy a house.
Just means I won't have to pay for the GP subscription next year.
Awesome.

BSA looks great man,
Been keeping tabs on you.

Anyone know the bearing 1/2 circlip placements?

I wasn't on the lookout for these things when I disassembled,
and I want to make sure I'm not leaving any out.

Right now I have 2 on the crank, both on the lower case half,
and on the rear shaft of the trans, I have one on each side of the lower case.
Is there supposed to be 2 on each of these spots? Anything fixed to the upper case half?






getting there.
