  1. I took a brush and liquid gasket / gasket maker, and brushed gasket all around the liners, let that dry, and it works perfect.
  2. You can bore up the holes for the cylinder studs by 1mm, then you don't need external oil feed. You also need to drill the hole in the head till you reach the oil galley to the cams Don't forget to drill the hole in the headgasket too
  3. Thanks. I thought you'd run about 10.000rpm. I think the GS and GSX didn't have limiters, but they don't rev that high anyway, I think. Your pistons are most likely more heavy then mine, so I should be all right revving it to 10.000rpm? I already thought this, but wasn't sure. It's a matter of better save then sorry. Expensive hobby when it goes wrong
  4. Gents, I've got a GS1000 with a 1247cc big bore on it, I have 493 con rods on it. I've gor forged pistons in it who weigh 257 grams each. My rev limiter is set at 9000rpm. My question; I don't have a clue how many revs my engine can do without blowing up. I know that piston speed is a very important thing. I don't have a clue if the weight of the piston is a limit in the amount of revs it can make. As far as my information goes a GSX1100 goes to 10.000rpm? Anyone who knows a thing or 2 in this regard? Thanks
  5. Thought so, wasn't sure. That's all in that kit
  6. What do you mean with the rack?

  8. The con rod on the crank is from a GS1000
  9. That's when a con rod of my bike snapped
  10. Weld wise I wouldn't be too worried! But your rods, are that 492's? My 493's have very clear 493 on it, my stock GS1000 haven't got a real number on them.. I was told my stock rods should be able to handle 200hp, but one snapped, or they can't handle 200hp, or I accidently did something right..
  11. 492 should be strong enough! I'm aware about the other stuff you mention, that's why I don't have the guts to go above 9000rpm. I hardly go over 7000rpm
  12. 492 rods? How/where is it welded?
  13. Not sure how the swing arm looks like, but what I can find on the www, isn't the Bandit swingarm way better? Looks and size/strength wise?
  14. I'm pretty sure there's a guy, he might be on OSS, who put a GSX1100 and later an oil boiler in a GS550 frame. @bruteforce, wasn't that you?
