I think that's it... they call it a No-lead head conversion.
Hmmm ... you spoke of the oil pump seal a few posts ago. Please tell me you did the main seal as well ... It will fail if the bike has sat for a while. The old seals were nasty white things. The new ones will last forever.
That's what I went in for in the first place... there is nothing rubber that isn't being replaced... the only reason i missed the oil pump seal is i was not aware of it in the first place.
Matter of fact if you look at the disassembly pics, it quite obvious the rear seal was blown.
I've been wondering how it's coming along every time I drive by your office. Okay I admit, I mostly just think about your girlfriend's butt when I drive by, but......How's the project coming?
I'll be over that way tomorrow, finishing mine up.
oh good ... I'd hate to see you do all that and then find a leaking rear main. I just finished a rebuild of an R80G/S, with some modifications last year. Funny how I don't have the desire these days to get wrenching again ...
The girlfriend project or the bike?
Seriously, there's been a lot of setbacks... suppliers sending the wrong parts and having to wait on the right parts being sent out. Of course we keep discovering stuff that needs to be replaced and I'm beginning to run out of money (girlfriend and 2 bikes will do it). Once we get the forks on and the final drive attached (next weekend?), it should be smooth sailing.
Glad to hear it's getting close. Mine should be done around noon tomorrow. You might see it on a short test ride around Alameda and Roosevelt.
I'll be working from home tomorrow (thank the presidential debate for that)... why don't you ride it over?
The f**ing thing is running on one cylinder (probably pinched a wire or some shit putting it all together) so it'll sit in Tempe until Tuesday when I get back. I'll get it going then.
Do you have a riding bike? I mean... something that tours a little?
Yeah the 950. It's good to have such a fine "back up" bike. It performed well over the weeken d. Now I'll see if I can get the beemer going.
Oh my... this bike is going to be pretty.
at least i have heads on one bike
the finish of the engine looks good.. What did you do? paint it? bead blast? thanks john shuck
elbow grease, mother's polish, and a spinning wheel.
Shannon, that thing looking SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep up the good work!
Due to two crashed bikes in as many months... work on the R90 project has been temporarily halted.
Now nursing a broken collarbone and a vodka tonic.
Sorry to hear that. Did the vodka tonics come just before the crashed bikes?
