  1. No probs fella, is it built yet?...
  2. I have several, somewhere... but no idea of what they're from.... what's the spindle size?
  3. Unfaired please. Keep the look that it had before its holiday...
  4. You don't have to drill the engine mount on the frame if you don't want to, you could sleeve the mount on the engine instead if you want to keep the frame as stock - I believe copper pipe can be used for tat. And I didn't need to take the sump off the B12 engine I fitted into my 750 Slabby, it went in complete, but only from one side (err, the left if i remember correctly), and the cam cover came off easy enough for valve clearances.
  5. Get rid of the EBC plates and fit genuine Suzuki ones. Aftermarket plates are notoriously bad in these motors.
  6. "Flanges"...
  7. The search function is, indeed, a wonderful thing.
  8. Gotta be worth it then. After all, if OSS isn't all about chasing that last two tenths of fuck all, what is it about?...
  9. So, the crux of the matter is getting heat out of certain components, rather than preventing heat getting in. ie remving heat from the plenum, and not blocking heat from the block from warming it (as an example). Which leads me to question why so many people have polished up-pipes from the turbo to plenum?...
  10. Wat? You Inspector Fookin' Gadget or summat?...
  11. I guess that depends on what the matt black actually is. If it's powdercoat then it'll not dissipate anywhere near as much as a non-painted one. And I agree in that matt black looks shite ;-) When I was still on SF I had a tech article planned in which I had several identical pieces of aluminium painted, polished, chromed, coated etc, and then heated them all up to the same temp, and measured which one lost the most heat. And then the mag folded so I never bothered...
  12. I reckon there'd be no noticeable difference, much like adding the carb sield to an NA bike I guess...
