    Fuel or ignition

    Changing the plugs is one out of three - Leads rarely fail partially but not impossible. What about the coil - have you tried another? As they are supposed to fire two plugs, your's could be breaking down just enough to randomly fire either 1 or 4. All carbs should be set the same - only rarely do you up the mains in the centre pots due to heat build up

    Cylinder head temp sensor

    Nope - it's there to block the hole used in the factory to line bore the camshaft bearings. Lots of people myself included use them to feed additional oil to the cams - as std. it's a blank plug with a hex to tighten it

    Cylinder head temp sensor

    Well there is one suitable bolt / screw that's already started - 4No on the sides of the head! And if you are cooking the engine its just natures way of telling you to ride faster or get out of traffic LOL!

    Fuel or ignition

    Blackened 1 & 4 does sort of point to plugs / leads / coil. The plugs may be salvageable but cleaning blackened or fuelled up plugs never seems to work - new plugs different story! If there are ANY electronics on the bike don't use D8ES plugs - you need DR8ES's ie. resistor plugs else the RF interference from the D8ES's will mess with everything. Of course swapping the carbs in the garage and having them rev clean ain't the same as out on the street and under load so it still could be a duff carb - but do the simple stuff first!

    Cylinder head temp sensor

    Not sure how successful JB weld will be as being primarily plastic it will insulate to a degree, also the tip of the sensor should ideally contact that which it is reading. Q - are the sensors both the same? Senders of that type are fairly slow response types and ideal for fluids - not air. Air temp sensors need to be fast response types or they are pointless. If it were me i'd drill and tap a bolt in the head and mount one sender there and the other in the sump - same mounting or direct into a thick bit of the casting ...............that'll give useful data.

    You may want to sit down when you price up the valves and you'll still maybe have the same problem - the valve seats are worn out ie. the hole is too big due to the valve seat angle being cut too deep. I've never had a problem winding a plug into a head - cracked or not........ 2 or 3 threads up and the plug won't be seating so running it like that, you'd have to be deaf not to hear the compression escaping. Possibly its a crossed thread ..... or 2 - that'll stop a plug seating!

    Dyna DRL-300 rev limiter HELP PLEASE

    See other thread - come on, get the grey cells working its a 4 cylinder bike that fires one cylinder (power stroke) every 180 degrees - each coil fires every 360 degrees / once every revolution alternating between 1&4 and 2&3. Easy to tell if you get the DRL300 wrong pulse count - set box to 6000 - if it stutters at 3000, double the count. If it stutters at 6000 - its correct and if it doesn't stutter at 6000 then half the pulses as its trying to limit at 12000!

    B12 coil firings (pulses)

    Single pick-up, 4 teeth, two revolutions = 8 pulses....................but the ecu / cdi / ign amp will condition that down to 4 pulses 180 degrees apart to run the coils wasted spark.

    1216 bandit with modded airbox

    A M8 with a 1216 bandit used DJ'd 36 CV's and modded airbox and would do a tank after about 90 miles - now uses RS36's still breathing through the modded airbox and has more mid range, more top end power, smooth throttle response and is getting 120 - 130 miles to a tank, more if he's 'driving Miss Daisy'

    Аbout installing the seat...

    These should help explain........

    Dyna DRL-300 rev limiter HELP PLEASE

    Piggy backing is correct otherwise the coils get no trigger signal normally! When piggy backed and limiter is activated, the white and blue wires get internally grounded to disrupt the sparks hence limiting the rpm.

    Аbout installing the seat...

    Some more details would be useful - like what model GSXR? That looks like no GSXR i'm familiar with - the battery is too high, there is usually a seat front rail across the frame at that point that the seat base nose slides under to locate it, using lock at the rear to hold it. Also tank retainer looks moody! Whole picture looks more than a little unsafe to me!

    Personally i'd say those valves and seats have been cut / lapped to death! The valves look pretty recessed and engines these days don't get 'coked up' with carbon like they used to - unless its burning oil ........ which with the low compression is a possibility. I think there is further investigation required - should have done a leak down test before you pulled the head - that would have pointed to valves or rings ........ wouldn't have stopped a strip down but you'd be fixing a known problem. BTW - that crack ain't it!

    Wow - someone definitely has toooooo much time on their hands LOL!
