  1. 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.
  2. Where did you order rods from? I can’t find any in stock anywhere online.
  3. Does it add value if you snap a snap on extractor piece in there Give up on this one for now.
  4. 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?
  5. real good weekend. Cheers guys! Look forward to the next one.
  6. I got thumbs up off the gaffer this morning
  7. I’d be game if I can get the weekend off work could bring my turbo slingy or blandit 11
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. It’s definitely a j/k 748 frame. I sold it you I think. It’s a gr77c import if I remember right.
  12. Morning all, I’ve made a start giving the latest purchase a once over. Bandit 6 with 1052 engine. it seems to have gsxr 750 bst36ss fitted (no TPS) but I noticed the carb tops are different heights, 1&4 look like they are from the bandit 36mm carbs and 2&3 look like gsxr ones.. looks a bit suspicious to me anyone come across this before? surely it’d make balancing near impossible if they are different causing different pressures up top? I have had it running previously and it wasn’t awful.. maybe they are inzuma or gsxf carbs that I haven’t come across before? long term plan would be rs36 when I can afford a set later in the year.
  13. Sounds like float needle stuck open on number 2. that’s what I find 9 times out of 10 when there’s fuel coming out the filters. This will also over fuel more than likely causing the smoking petrol smell.
  14. Oh and here’s a piccy so you don’t think it never happened
