Re: center bolt for valve covers

I thought all heads had the centre stud hole drilled though?
I'm running with just a centre nut plus silicone on one head to overcome head warp and oil leak. Leak stopped.

Re: Tire to swing arm clearance

Skinny tyres rule, and the skinnier the tyre, the more the sports bikes squirm when they get a view of it. This..... is a very important consideration! Embarrassing modern sport bikes is a noble pursuit. :P Other than exchanging the top hat spacer, are there any other adjustments required? No other...

Re: Tire to swing arm clearance

Added engagement can only be a good thing. I don't think it will create a significant issue by reinstalling the shorter spacer.

Re: Tire to swing arm clearance

It's not too big of a step on the fd spline, but the wheel spline will run up on that step with the smaller spacer. Is it a problem? It will be the only contact of the splines unless the wheel spline cup can twist to accommodate the step? I'd imagine the step will wear down and the wheel cup will re...

Re: Starter Ring Gear Reversal

I bought a clutch carrier from the Melbourne guy a few years ago for $40

I just sent him a text to see if he has a good one.

Cost you $300 NZ for a new one delivered from Motobins.

Re: Starter Ring Gear Reversal

There's a bloke in Melbourne who's bound to have one but the postage would make it less attractive. These ring gears don't bugger up too much so there are bound to be some in NZ. Here's a bloke someone on ADV suggests, I put a 'wanted in NZ' add in the flea bay for you. Try Kane at R Twin Works (Pho...

Re: Starter Ring Gear Reversal

What am I doing asking for pics!! Yes, definitely worn. So it's a replacement ring gear and a new bendix to complete. Seriously, those ring gears should be available from someone in NZ. Perhaps ask on ADV rider forum, there are a few from NZ there, or 'Facebook airheads down under' plenty there too....
