but it looks so much more bettera burning out the back
Anyone got a spare left han OEM radiator laying around ?
I have 1 I had repaired after the 2006 A4DE, it doesnt leak or look real pretty, you want it as a spare do you? Dont you have PWRs?
thanks lostsaffa always good for find XR parts sitting at the front door
The first PWR's did not fit,
the thinner second set of PWR's did not fit and are being modified
and were ready the day after i came back to work.
My convern is when i get home and try the PWR's and they don't fit,
then i am up shits creek without a paddle.
No radiators, no Condo.
Just thinking i could put on the stockers and run with them,
then go back to gitting the PWR's.
why don't they fit? aren't they made for the XRR?
Stock radiator is 18mm thick at the core.
The 42mm thick radiator would fit with a stock header is my guess.
The 32mm ones i got were messed up a bit, mounting holes too big, etc.
A guy from PWR Adam has come and looked at the problem where the bike is and will sort it eventually.
Note: the reason why i wanted the thicker radiators is, if i hole one,
i can by pass that radiator and the engine can still run with one radiator without overheating.
so there thicker rads will onlt fit with stock header pipes?
do you have rad guards to help prevent holing 1?
42mm would fit with stock header and a header that has the same tight radius out of the cylinder head as the stock header has.
I have the "FAB" brand radiator guard / brace
Any new pics poppy
The subframe is working a treat mate
I am sum what used to it now but the bike seem to stiff'n up ,its hard to explain .. i noticed it most on the tar ...or maybe its just me
I have seemed to tame down the xr's only pipe ... its still loud and crackles a bit ..but no more flames and sparks
it has colored up real nice ... im real happy with it .. i think i can feel a nice pwr gain in the bottom end ..looking forward to getting it back on the dyno in a few weeks
good news on the sub-frame, will be intrested to see what difference the pipe gets on the dyno
Starting to resemble a bike again Sean-O.
Didn't like the way the B&B frame guards fitted, so gave them a little tweak, fit much nicer now. Not sure why they dont do it to start with.
Looking forward to see the bike finished poppy
You and me both mate. Hopefully it will be a nice bike to ride.
Got the barrel and piston fitted up tonight along with a few small things. Hopefully get my head back tomorrow from getting skimmed and the new valves seated.
looking good poppy!!! what piston did you go for?
G'day Ditchy, just a forged Wiseco 10-1. Wanted to keep the comp standard for trips into no man's land with crappy fuel.
Head looks a little cleaner than before.
New spring seats, valve stem seals, springs and retainers ready for fitting.
New valves in place
Spring seats, and valve stem seals
Difference in height between the Kibble White valve springs and stock
Kibble White retainers are a liitle bigger dia as well, nice gear , very well finished.
Fit the rest of this gear up and the engine is ready to button up.
this things gunna rip ......pretty close to the end of March mate
better get a rigalong
Not sure about rip mate, its just gotta go and i will be happy.
Dont suppose anyone local to the Goldie has a cam shaft plug spare. It appears i didn't order one and it looks like i threw the old one out, if not, i'll try my luck with the local honda dealer.
i have one. you gotta come to the dam to get it though
