  1. Hey Viz, relax the rules a little Cavalstrophic in a Slabby would be cool.
  2. Classic bike shops/sites Tokyo?

    Nankai always worth a visit.
  3. Dogbones/rear shock knuckle bolt replacement?

    The ball in the joint has a very small contact patch, so it is important to fit a washer to stop it eating anything aluminium. Even when it runs onto steel, a washer and regular replacement is worth it. That ball it very hard and the carrier is a softer material, is designed to wear the carrier more than the ball, so the whole area has a limited life. They are cheap enough to source and replacement is usually possible. Ff you want to get a high end damper to live forever in a difficult to access area, you can buy rubber boots, but they are bastards to fit. I have a habit of shooting chain lube at them to get them lubed, idea being that it will stay where I want it for longer than a dribble of oil or a shot of WD40.
  4. running decent, finally~!

    Have a little look at the slides from the engine side. The crescent cut out on that side of the slides needs to have a decent gap on a closed throttle for the pilot circuit to work properly. You normally know that something is wrong 'cause you get the bike hanging revs on a closed throttle, but seeing as you are in Canada, I doubt that you've been out much yet. I've seen 2 sets of new Mikis, where although the carbs are set balanced, the slide height is wrong from new. Simple visual check before you go running around chasing shadows.

    My bad....was meaning that you are not going to see how well mannered and tractable a 3D mapped bike is by looking at a simple Dyno trace. Looks like Keihin do a set of 41mm with TPS, I'm guessing that a side pull conversion on any set of carbs could be modded to rig a TPS in there. This is all going to take some thought.

    Not something that you are going to see on a Dyno. I've only seen it on a stop watch and heard 'He just comes off the corners so good'. And to be honest I think that was without a TPS.

    Ah, so a TCPi4 comes in the box with with a Loom plug and some wire already hanging out the back of the thing. Their site really does not make that clear. Ok, I'm in Budapest next weekend and my funds are going towards hanging out of the back of something a bit more attractive than a black plastic box. Upon my return, I will enter into discussions with yourself or Dunc.

    I'll be in touch. Price on the loom bit seems to be 7 Euro if purchased with a box, which seems implausibly cheap, hence I thought I would get a grown up to ask. Please.

    I'm looking to have some aftermarket clocks that do a bit, plus the option of a quick-shifter sounds fun. Fascinated how to get a TPS onto a set of K's or Mickey T's. Some of the boys in Classic Endurance were running Ignitechs and getting strong results for drive using custom maps, certainly having an advantage over a fixed ignition curve that I have a little familiarity with setting the carbs up around. That was on GSX. I'm intending to run 1157/Blandit with lots of toys (one day) so am interested in how complicated you could make it, yet get something that runs beautifully. I like the idea of something a bit lairy, but easy to live with, if you get what I mean.
  11. Dyna 2000 ignitions

    That's the one for TCPi4 off Ignitech site.

    I'm gathering pennies just now, as well, but.... They do a starter loom kit, which would save a bit of faffing about for me. I'm tight with where I can put the ecu, having the thing fully plugged up and then routing away from the install, out to the rest of the components, would be a blessing for me. Any idea what you could land one for?
  13. Dyna 2000 ignitions

    Ok, so how do you get a TPS bolted onto a set of carbs? Has been bothering me on which Igni to buy.
  14. Sealing cases

    You only need it on the exterior mating surface, the gearbox shaft seals will do the rest.
  15. Daytona forks do just want to fall into Suzuki's. I'm guestimating .95s for mine, but I'm a light weight your choice of fork spring will be useful.
