    Left.jpg right.jpg Ok so head is now back on, we now have decent valve clearances on al 24 valves. Have gotten most it back together in a very short time actually. I even have brakes on both wheels now!! Just doing the electrical stuff, and waiting on a new harness for the ignitech ignition brain box (I'm swapping from early model pulse coils to later model and typically, they have a different plug!) and the intake manifold as already mentioned. Hoping to have it winding over this weekend so I can build up some oil pressure and prime everything.

    Getting there slowly but its looking more and more certain to make the dyno day in November at Roland Skates shop. You may know Rol from his exploits on the circuit with two CBX's, The Beast and the Beastess

    Hey @OldDog,
    Did you get this winding over yet?
    I also notice that you've been colluding with @buckscreek with your header wrap on page 5 & above :lol3

    Also you probably know this but half your pics have the photobucket message, the other half must be on a different account cause they work.
    Catch you later.

    Hey Bill, that is looking real smart, nearly as smart as you! The pipe wrap is obviously practical, and is not really the point of using it surely? Isn't it just to make your bike look way cooler? And, what is the red bike in the background? You still got a little Honda twin there?

    'Way Cooler' or 'Way Hipster' :lol3
    I think he's just trying to keep those gases nice, hot & fast while they get through the turbo hey Bill?

    Bloody Photobucket, those guys are just going too far now I reckon. I really must fix the pics in this thread!

    Regards header wrap, as Dave suggests its there to serve a purpose. With a large impeller turbo like this one (old school) the more thermal energy I can dump onto that wheel the more efficient it'll be. I couldn't bring myself to do the whole exhaust though. It also doubles as insulation, reduces excess heat getting into the engine, its aircooled and its doing hard as it is! Also the header pipe runs close to the intake, so trying reduce some transference there. Finally, stops my from burning my leg if it gets too close :D

    As for winding over, nah not yet, just got the new battery for it so its not far away though!

    And the red bike? Why that's the little CB200 I used on the scrapheap last year. She's a real sweety, but needs some tune up type attention.
