  1. did you check the condition of the diaphragms ?
  2. did you have the vacuum pipe plugged when you had the tank off ? and did you have some sort of fuel supply as its running ? got to keep the float bowls full at all times
  3. rev's that hang is a symptom of an air leak or a lean mixture when it comes to carbs.
  4. first off set the idle when the engine is at working temp. if the rev's are hanging and then dropping is sounds like its running lean (to much air), have you tried the mixture screws ?
  5. yeah seen them, don't know how good they are though !!!!
  6. if you mean the Mk2 bandit clocks you will need to rig up some sort of speed sensor off the front sprocket cover, and wire the rev counter to an ignition coil. if you use Mk1 clocks then you can use a speedo drive from the front wheel.
  7. I think the GSX swinger is a tad longer but not sure ? but the pivot width is the same. the wheel goes in easy but the sprocket carrier needs machining down to get it lined up. not got the bandit engine in yet though.
  8. I'm building a GS1000 based project atm, it has a GSX1100 swinger that fits straight in with a bandit 600 wheel.
  9. I think it might help if we know what bike
  10. I disconnected the hose to the calliper on one of my bikes and took the top part off, then made a plate to tidy it up, if you take the top off the antidive their is no fluid just a little plunger thing, but the plate just tidy's it up. zoom in on this pic. or click to get a clearer view.
  11. she's already mentioned it Toni
  12. I forgot to say, I might fit a B12 wheel AND the B12 swinger I really am loosing it
  13. my current GS project has a GSX1100 swinger in it, ive got a B6 wheel in it atm with a 160 tyre on it, if i push the wheel all the way forward the tyre rubs on the swinger but half way down the slots it clears. im happy to use the B6 wheel as it makes chain line up a lot easier, but i might fit a B12 and wheel i have at a later date ???
  14. I did the same thing on the Katzuma, but i didn't use a cone filter i just covered the hole with wire mesh and cut some air filter sheet over the top. had no room for a cone filter as the battery was in the way
  15. if this helps im using a standard airbox on my GS1000 project and using B6 carbs, the airbox is a 2 piece affair but not using the rear section, so gona use a pod filter that i can tune the air flow. all trial and error !!!!!
  16. shame thats not a legal plate
  17. Yeah their way to expencive
  18. feck im loosing it !!!! i was meant to say Timeserts i never use helicoils anyway.
  19. if theirs enough meat then helicoil or go up a thread size, but that would mean drilling the mounting holes out.
  20. B12 forks would be better but if you want to use the B6 forks upgrade the springs and maybe thicker oil as they are very soft.
  21. had the same issue with my 1100, went back to OEM plates and new OEM springs
  22. looks more like a 550
  23. a popular front end is off the GSXR1100 from the early 90's. but finding a good set of forks is getting harder, but a pretty easy swop.
  24. can i join in ? B12 with triumph front end, actually longer than standard B12 forks.
