    My day

    This says it all....

    Swingarm extender blocks...... Yes or no ?

    I have never used them although I had thought of doing so some time ago but I too had my concerns but should I have had concerns,i don't know.You see people using them from Old Skool to brand new bikes (looking at you America lol ) so I cannot see any issues if they are made well and are fitted correctly....M Having said that I simply cut and shut my GSXR1100 arm extending it by 100 mm,adding in new material including internal splicing and plug welding just to make sure it stays put.Why do it this way???...Mainly because I was after a 'factory' look and it was cheaper.The deciding factor over the bolt on extensions was simply that..they looked bolt on.

    1 cylinder not working

    I have a tray full of plugs of various ages although non older than a year.I was going through them like sweets....it was all down to an over fuelling issue which killed plugs like there was no tomorrow.They do not like being soaked in fuel.You are simply washing away the spark whether it's in the head or out of it.....Sometimes a burn off in the oven brought them back to life....Now I have the fuelling sorted I have never had a problem and even have one or two of those killed plugs in the engine to this day. I would be looking at a possible leaky float needle on that cylinder for a start.

    1 cylinder not working

    I would have thought if one plug has spark issues so would its coil sharing partner (1&4,2&3)...Did you change the leads to the plug?...how does the plug look?...valve clearancesand compression all ok? oh and what plugs are you using as I went through a few before and heard some may not be genuine but it is hard to tell I thought.

    Rear sets on gsx

    Gsxr rear sets on an EFE...with adaptor plates which are fully adjustable,not that I have mind you Anything can be made to fit with a little fabrication and/or imagination.
  7. I ran mine in,albeit MTC pistons,for around 300 miles.No thrashing/red lining/uphill in high gears etc,just rode it sensibly,on cheapo mineral oil...however,it did burn a little oil on start up so I was worried I had been too careful but a weekend giving it the beans last year at Donington 'completed' the process and now all is good in the hood.

    Dyna DRL-300 rev limiter HELP PLEASE

    When I fitted mine to the 12v coil feed at the coil itself I seemed to have issues with misfiring at certain revs so I fitted it to the positive battery terminal for test purposes and it all seemed fine.I then found a spare switched 12v feed wire (from rear light loom) and used that...works fine now...I remember Gixer1460 telling me before that these are more suited to racing bikes with minimal wiring/accessories which could complicate things......I do know however that going round Donington recently the limiter played up due to the lighting circuit fuse falling out lol...

    Did my bottom end let go?

    Maybe the carbs still need attention..... Does it make any thumps or dull knocks from anywhere?

    1100 EFE CDI

    Should be with you tomorrow matey I bought that one for the same reason Dezza and then some pick-ups...after checking the wiring for the eighth time it turned out to be carb jetting lol....

    1100 EFE CDI

    I am not sure if I have a spare or not but something tells me I purchased another one a couple of years ago for test purposes but I wont know till I get to the garage tomorrow...I do know I bought another pick-up assembly for the same reasons. If I do not have one I will volunteer to be a guinea pig

    Flatslide woes

    I suffer from similar issues with mine...I have never got it to idle like factory carbs but I wouldn't say it is as bad as yours.I always set my idle speed when the bike is warm and often find myself having to physically turn the throttle back to lower the revs when coming to traffic lights for instance,(I have removed one spring one hole back mind you)....It is something I have lived with but after faffing about with jets etc to get a happy medium I have come to the conclusion that a new set will have to be purchased next winter....I am passing too much air through worn slides for it to run as Mikuni intended....However,i do hope that £850 ish for new carbs will sort it out once and forever.

    master cylinder

    What do the mounting holes measure across centre to centre?

    master cylinder

    It may be prudent to invest in a new cylinder too....that way it's all new and you could eliminate rubbers AND cylinder wear. As for exact type you could simply buy one which has similar dimensions and the amd hole spacings and it should do the job.
