    Looks like after some careful zooming in on eBay pics the current RT offerings are indeed as you pic, high top. I was sold GS pistons not RT! $40 down the tube. Where’s Drone, my eBay shopper? Off to spend another wad.


    Edit:
    I checked my eBay order. Looks like I bought R pistons not RT. So it’s on me. They are going to live with my telelever. :flush

    On another note. Is there any benefit to ceramic coating the y-pipe while I’m doing the header?

    Those are both GS or R pistons as far as I can see I've done this several times and all the road bike pistons I've seen have the raises dome.
    You've noticed that on ebay everything looks the same they list them as fitting everything and they do but those are not RT RS or S pistons.
    I have some rocket sprockets somewhere that I could give you they advance cam timing 8 degrees but with GS cams that's allot they are meant to work well with the road bike cams.​

    Rust/corrosion. Very noticeable in those pics flying the car at rallys.

    Too late. I dropped off the header but kept the y-pipe. Is chrome. Gonna clash.

    Things have been progressing slow the last couple of weeks. My fleebay bottom fork bridge is MIA. He sent me a top clamp instead of the fork bridge. Waiting for the correct part now. My wobble bearing came and is in the top clamp. It was a bit confusing getting the correct one. In the end I got a 10 ball per row instead of the 12 that came with the EZS stuff. Looks like it will work, not sure what the trade off is.

    The rubber wire sleeve was all rotted away so I replaced it with some of that fancy stuff from mikepa’s thread. Thanks mikepa. Dielectric greased all the connectors. And replaced the studs in my custom Bowden cable box holder with flat head screws incase I want to keep the bike battery. Just treading water waiting for parts. Oh yeah, installed a deck railing so the wife should be happy for a while.

    Two less balls.
    Sounds like a trade.

    Off.

    Happy happy happy

    The new lower fork bridge came today USPS. I installed it and everything lines up nicely. The forks don’t hit the fairing stay and all looks good. My angle finder says the lower fork bridge and the top clamp are about 1 to 1 1/2 degrees out of alignment, way better than the 4 degree I was measuring before. The wobble bearing isn’t even going to wobble!

    RT pistons came. Hopefully the rings show up tomorrow.

    Fancy cable ties ( another mikepa guilt trip) showed up.

    Even got 60 miles on the Ktoom.

    We can get an argument started that will go n endlessly old time tuners thought keep the exhaust as hot as possible till it gets to where you want it to expand the most (muffler) and create more scavenging wives tale ? :hmmmmm
    ON the Red K I jet hot coated it all the way to the can the pipes run very hot between that and the N14 injectors it runs lean as hell, but has a TUV can that is not straight thru. The K100 was a 4v that didn't have any restriction in the can it ran allot cooler. I'd coat the Y pipe it keeps the heat off the sump and transmission.

    Some folks do this:

    I prefer this:

    3F1FF7C4-4264-4E41-99BD-6C18BA0F3F6E.jpeg




    I put the wheel and brake rotor/caliper on the front end. The rotor was binding up on the caliper. I took it apart and realized that the stamped speed-o drive had slipped out of its proper place and caused the stack up to bind. I also realized that the wheel bearing outside race was taking the axial squeeze rather than the inner race so it needed a spacer or some mods to the speed-o drive housing. So I fixed it all, my way.

    Or you could just call it dicking around.

    I only have a vague idea of what you’ve done. But I sure wish I had your skills. Nice work.

    Because people want to know:

    Here’s where the front of my subframe bolts.

    B87DAABE-35F8-43E1-B2D5-532FBD3298D2.jpeg

    I had to take a bit of material off the telelever to clear the mount for the subframe boss. I suspect EZS points the telelever up just to open up this engine mount for an attachement point. Sorry the subframe is at the powdercoater so no installed pics.


    Ignore the hole in the block. I’m gonna fix that tomorrow.

    Next time I think I’ll just do this:

    When Claude posted the option the lightbulb didn’t come on. But after looking at pics of this Euro design, it just doesn’t look that hard. And I think it would have worked with the EZS LL.
    Maybe.

    Anyone know if I need to keep my abs rings since I’ve done the pump delete? I did keep the electronic box and it’s plugged in. Per the YouTube that I watched.

    Check to see how the rings are mounted. If the rotors mount on top of the rings then you'll be changing how the rotors center in the calipers. If the rings mount on top of the rotors, then delete away.

    Thanks fellas. I’ll put them in the might not never need again pile.


    Actually the opposite. I had the rotor and ring stacked. Caused caliper issues. But then I realized that the EZS hub has bolt holes for both and they aren’t supposed to be stacked.
    But I like the idea of just leaving the ring off better.
    Ya know, for better gas mileage.

    "Ya know, for better gas mileage."

    Less un-sprung weight.
