  1. I reckon @Katanamight be able to help you out with that
  2. Is it a gsxr or teapot dot head? If its a gsxr head use the cams that cam with it
  3. Grumpy1260 do a mount kit, you'll need to email them regarding them and they'll get them made to suit. As for the two air cooled engines being the same, Ive no idea
  4. You can fit pretty much any engine you want, the mounts are readily available either pre made or theres patterns on here to get your own cut. @Wescooley19built a stunning 750ES with an 1100 engine and had to do a few mods due to the height of the motor but it went in. A short stroke 750 oil cooled engine should be relatively trouble free
  5. I did the same on my EF, been fine for years
  6. Cut the offending piece off and leave the bolt out. The cover is still secure with the other 5(?) bolts holding it in.
  7. Swingarm pivot will need sleeving. The bearing sleeves out of a slingshot swingarm should go straight into the K2 arm. Its pretty much the same procedure as fitting a SRAD750 arm iirc You'll want to space the top shock mount out about 15mm, use the K2 knuckle and an adaptor to locate the knuckle mounting to the right place, and a set of adjustable dogbones.
  8. which model thou? I know k1/k2 will fit with some persuasion and heat but some later ones wont as their runners are co joined
  9. I stand corrected Muliple earths only ever creates headaches though IMO
  10. As @johnrsays, check every earth connection. My money is on a corroded bullet connector or someone has put those shitty red/blue crimp connectors on somewhere and the crimp has failed. Main earth point is the battery and a lead to the engine, you shouldnt have any others as it'll create an earth loop
  11. It really isnt. You wouldnt swap flatties for CV's! Well worth doing
  12. https://www.omnicalculator.com/everyday-life/compression-ratio
  13. Sounds like my K8 top with a slingshot ignition barrel and a modern long key to suit!
  14. This one of Viz's scribblings that my last trackbike was based on.

    Zoom in on the tail section of that bright yellow ET bodywork, you’ll see them on the table along with the cakes!

    Trophy got commandeered sorry boys. I’m sure he’ll look after it Brilliant turnout for OSS and the show was busier than I’d seen in a few years. Thank you to everyone who brought a bike (or two) and supported the stand. See you at the next one!
  20. Carb blowthru's only need to be 1 or 2 psi over the boost pressure. The couple I've worked on have only been set at 1-2 psi on those malpassi regulators
