  1. the black engine will go in your white bike as its shorter from front to back than the silver engine, dont know if they are taller though ? but you will have to make some engine mounts, try it in the frame and see if any engine mounts will line up. if one does it gives you a starting point.
  2. you need to post a pic of your engine as their was a change around 83-84.
  3. yep, bin their done that couldn't find a used one anywhere at the time but did find a new old stock one
  4. if you mean the 16valve engines then yeah, the 8 valve engine has different mounting points to the 16 valve but not miles different.
  5. they say not to do that !!! its meant to go on the outside of the connector to keep the damp out.
  6. probably the best way would be to fit a wider swingarm, an aluminium one will be stiffer and look better than the steel one.
  7. have they got the anti-squeal shims in ? ive had the same problem a while back and removing the shims fixed it.
  8. if it where mine I'd just fit an OEM filter and be done
  9. yeah what Joseph said, some bikes don't like a free flowing filter unless you change jets or settings to suit.
  10. lol, ive no idea how wide the R1 swinger is at the pivot ? but where theirs a will theirs a way
  11. yeah i wondered that, i did the same thing with a Zed 1000 shaft frame with a B12 engine in it. loads of room for a decent swinger
  12. GS850 ? its a shaft. but anything is possible
  13. you can get an idea from the colour, mines factory black and they came out around 83, 80 to 82 where silver. but be careful it hasn't been painted by someone. not much help though, sorry.
  14. sounds like the clutch basket is not fully seated, are the alternator and crank gears fully engaged? undo the alternator and see if it goes back all the way. if it does the alternator gear is wrong or not engaging.
  15. it was a GS750 frame with a GSX750 engine, but i used a GSX1100 swingarm. this one
  16. ive got a memory like a sieve but i think i had the RF carrier turned down 10mm and that give enough clearance for the tyre. but i did have to fit a thick washer behind the front sprocket for alignment, i wasn't gona pay £60 for another offset sprocket when a washer did the trick
  17. its not the end of the world bob, the only down side is the expense
  18. RF 600 will fit. the sprocket mount surface is a bit lower than the B6 but it might not be enough to line your sprockets up ? i used one on one of my builds but still needed some more skimming off it.
  19. not healthy you put the ring in the bore to check the ring gap.
  20. usually oil burning on start up is a sign of stem seals !!! did you use good quality ones ? i cant see the valve guides being worn at that mileage but worth checking. if you are pulling the top end off then worth checking the ring gaps.
  21. stick an 1100/1200 engine in it, a lot easier.
  22. you guys never heard of front wheel drive I saw a security video years ago, it was a custom built van and yeah a couple of blokes in the back with a winch, it was sound proofed to help hide the sound of an alarm. i don't need to prove anything to anyone by the way, if you don't believe me i don't give a shit.
  23. talking of security, have you seen them van's that have the floor cut out ? they open the rear doors reverse over the bike and shut the doors, then lift up the bike and their off
