  1. Changed my mind now, booked spectator tickets for USB now hopefully bring the turbo along for a rwyb try.
  2. Looking good man. Looking forward to seeing it all back together mate.
  3. Anglesey is pretty close to me, plus I can get digs up there with family so I’ll probs go there with @fatblokeonbandit keen to get to USBs other dates though.
  4. Where did you order rods from? I can’t find any in stock anywhere online.
  5. Does it add value if you snap a snap on extractor piece in there Give up on this one for now.
  6. Is it common for these little bastards to snap when torquing them up, or am I just unlucky? this is the second time I’ve had it happen, luckily first time it wound out with the broken head. Tonight, no such luck. I know they are only 10nm setting, though I read somewhere that wet and dry torques are completely different, anyone heard this before?
  7. real good weekend. Cheers guys! Look forward to the next one.
  8. I got thumbs up off the gaffer this morning
  9. I’d be game if I can get the weekend off work could bring my turbo slingy or blandit 11
  10. This is my ‘scruffy slingy’ unsure of power, late 100s running a standard b12 with sp turbo kit. r1guys old lock up clutch (above) got a set of busa pistons and another b12 motor to aim for 250bhp. Could do with extended swingarm in time.
  11. Decided to give up on that engine and buy another 1157 and build my own 1216, I got the busa pistons for it now. I read about prepping the pistons to prevent getting hot spots on them, can any one advise, or got a pic of how much I should be taking off? Obviously don’t want to cock them up otherwise I’ve paid for five fifths of feck all. Also, anyone get any experience with maxpeeding rods? Worth it?
  12. I picked up this ‘bit Smokey when it’s running’ mk1 1200 motor yesterday. Was cheap enough, happy to find busa pistons in it when I opened it up. there is some considerable heat damage where the cam lobes have got so hot they have worn down the rocker arms. I have a complete head here left over from a dot head conversion on a different bike. Upon closer inspection of the bores earlier I noticed these marks (only) on no:3, like cavitation almost. Its not deep, but can feel it when I run my nail over it. What could have caused this? The pistons don’t look any more work than a second hand set. Can I get it re-bored I fraction to keep the busa pistons? The plan is to build a strong engine for my turbo that’s currently on standard b12 motor.
