Dan that crank looks like it needs a regrind to me .
Which one ? It has a broken sub frame, pillion foot peg holders, Steering head at some time.
Opps. Sorry miss read the post.
The crank does have some discolouring, an is showing signs of wear. The crank will need to re ground or replaced at some stage.
Every item on this bike is showing signs of high mileage.
I'd seriously consider replacing the crank. I've seen & heard of quite a few cases of cranks, that had been ground, cracking or breaking some time later. A R100RS I owned cracked the crank & when we stripped it down found the crank had been ground/polished. I don't know of one /5, /6, /7 crank having been ground successfully.
A frame repaint after work today,
Same thing happened to 75/5 ,the crank had been reground without radius and snapped.
started the GT750P2 today, warmed her up and then sat there listening to an almost steady idle, reckon one more go with the carb balancing and she'll be ready for the road
Swore at it, pushed it up to the top of the street and got it started on the first run down.
Wasn't holding my tongue the right way to get it going and the 6 year old battery might be on its last legs.
Bit of carb cleaner with some new fuel and it's going great guns. Starts great hot, but it's a bit reluctant after a spell.
Wasn't any mail at the post box after all that, but at least I got out on two wheels for a bit.
Took Winnie for a ride to Granya via Tallangatta and the Hume Weir etc. had a Harley in my sights to pass but a few to many straight stretches to truely catch it. Winnie is great but not a lot of puff from 75 or so.
Made a heat shield and some racks for my new NAZ Panniers. Very well made and MADE IN AUSTRALIA http://www.nazbags.com.au/
Your mission Mr Phelps, if you choose to except it. Put your bike back together,
First, eliminate any foreign agents hiding in your sump.
What is it?
It is what's left of an early model crankcase breather. Can be very hard to remove. I guessing at some time in the past. They could not remove the breather. Broke it into smaller pieces an fell inside the engine.
I always encourage airhead owners to remove there sump every couple of years. Never know what goodies you will find.
This is what a complete one looks like.
Packed for Deadmans Gulch rally. Leaving tomorrow.
Think yourself lucky it’s not a modern one.
Especially if you had the box out.
I was once asked. Would replace a clutch in a R1200CL full dresser. I replied No thanks. Would take a day to remove all the body work and panniers.
Fitted a few bits lately, crash bars, sump guard and re enforced the rear rack to take our 67L 'box :)
67lt Wheelie assist.
That's an ESKY or CHILLI BIN not a box....
