Re: 1988 project

So what's the diameter for the inner nut? Is it 27mm? Naw...Don't think it was anywhere near as big... Studding was about 12mm so nuts would have been 19 or 22 OD and I shaved them down a bit. From what I recall I just tapered the end with a grinder and kept test fitting and grinding until snug.( I...

Re: 1988 project

Wheels look spot on in "charcoal" ? My spare TDM ones are that colour...they make a good matching with the frame. I use this for all my Yamaha forks; http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p626/willandrip/dogbones%20and%20forks/021_zpsc46dcfd2.jpg Studding and 2x nuts locked together. Often t...

Re: Header compatability

Bushes such as this are very easily worked with 180 abrasive paper on a flat surface.
Support the inner with an appropriate sized drill shank to prevent crushing.
A used bush is particularly fragile due to heat exposure...when new they are much more ductile.

Re: 1987 FZR 600 Las Vegas NV

The lad only has two posts...in the first one he got the year right...thought a Mod would have spotted that ! The passenger pegs and hangers are Fzr1000R Limey. Ohlins remote shocks in good order still make reasonable money..but that is stretching it a bit. Corbin seats aren't two a penny nor are Ra...

Re: Fuel pump issue: help

Wire a low wattage test lamp in parallel with the pump above the pump connector block. This will indicate if the relay is operating correctly or if the pump is failing intermittingly. By connecting above the connector block it eliminates block connector failure. Intermitted electrical component fail...

Re: Replacing HT Leads

Operate the choke and feel if, when closed, they can be manually closed further.
I would also use new plugs for diagnosis...the ones in your pic look done for. They have been fouled/cleaned numerous times despite the electrode being relatively unworn.

If no dealer local then use Fowlers.

Re: Replacing HT Leads

Also check the choke plungers are returning fully.

That doesn't look like oil deposits
Fzr engines do use oil ..but not to the extent of oil fouling plugs. Mineral oil tends to burn less than semi.

Re: Replacing HT Leads

More likely to be over rich mixture Chris...fuel levels firstly then emulsion tubes for ovality . These aren't usually oil burners and if enough to foul a plug it is caked on baked deposits that are easily recognised. The plug would need to be very oily not to spark...black and dry is excess fuel......

Re: 1988 project

The fuel level sensor in the tank on the later models gets to 2 or 3 times higher temp than crankcases ever do when at reserve level ! The headers are the hot bits.... Try old British iron that you have to tickle and flood to start if you wish to see fuel steaming off hot aircooled barrels......and ...
