    Tune up Katana or engine swap gsx?

    Similar, Paul!

    slabside petrol cap

    Don't lubricate it with oil, or WD40. That'll clog the works up in no time. Use powdered Graphite.

    Take it to bits inside a freezer bag!

    Clutch plates

    Stick to genuine Suzuki clutch plates. Better than the rest!

    Very nice indeed. And before FBOAB says it ... 'Bugger me, that's shiny'!

    Oil jets

    Yes John, they certainly do! Couldn't see the wood for the trees! Thanks mate!

    Oil jets

    How do you get these little oil jets out of the 4 centre main bearing housings? Tried needle nose pliers, but they just slip off. Can they be blown out, and if so, from where? Motor is '96 B6.

    New head for gsx1100 kat engine (24bolt)

    That was common with the Triumph 8 stud alloy heads. No effect on performance, so lived with it. 9 stud heads solved the problem. Could be welded, but not cheap. As John says, might be worth looking farther afield to find the cause.

    Gsx swingarm

    Just read your first post again. I see you want to stay twin shock. With a B12 arm, you'll need top hats to take the swinging arm spindle diameter down, (assuming 750 & 1100 frames are same width at 'arm mounting point). Otherwise 'arm may need mods. Get weld on lower shock mounts from Lucky 7, find a nice man who can weld, and away you go. As said before, a std. Kat/1100ET arm will fit with no mods, take a 160 no bother, or a 180 with a bit 'massaging'. Only going by my experience, as a 180 rubs against the stiffening webs on the inside of the arm.

    Depends which way you want to go. Stay with the monoshock, or go twin shocks?

    It's definitely a big improvement.

    The bastards please themselves, and make it up as they go along. I can see us going to be lumbered with something akin to TUV. Our days are numbered!
