  1. Sorry mate, totally forgot. From what I remember they were R1 big bang coils, don't know the year but I don't remember looking for a specific year. They're about 130mm long. Dan
  2. Sorry for the delay, been a busy month or so. I believe they're R1 coils, I'll measure one this weekend if I get time.
  3. I used Yamaha coils, slightly shorter than the gsxr ones.
  4. Fitted sticks on my bikes too, not for performance but reliability in the wet. The DR350 used to stutter and miss all the time in the wet, even with a new coil and ht lead. Now it doesn't miss a beat even riding through near airbox deep rivers.
  5. Can't attach a pdf but I can email them over if you want. from what I can see though Yellow & black - fuel light black & Green - coolant temp Blue & black - neutral Black & red - Tach
  6. I've got a pdf of the watercooled manual, I'll have a look tomorrow and see how clear the diagrams are.
  7. I've got one for a DR350 that I think someone on here liked to. Only info on it says coloured by hus. Googling it though, Kojaycat sell them laminated for £7.50
  8. I used them a few years ago for a DR350 shock rebuild, can't fault them. A friend used them earlier in the year as well with no problems.
  9. Seen it on a second hand motor I bought, don't know how long it had been sitting or whether they were genuine friction plates though.
  10. I've used a heat mat under the tank on the turbo 1100w, the tank and frame still get warm but I'm assuming it actually does something to help keep the tank cool.
  11. Its a 530 sprocket, went straight on without any problems
  12. That settles it then! I'd looked at gearing commander but only used a 180/55 tyre, using a 60 bumps the speed up a good amount. Using the buell rear wheel the smallest rear sprocket I can use is 42t, I've got a 17t on the front but can't find an 18t, don't know if it'll fit either.
  13. I've not worked it out but a friend has and there is a benefit to use 1st from the 750 box. Not sure how much though. I'll be trying it with the sprockets first obviously but I may as well look into the possibility of swapping gears to see if it can be done or not. If it's not possible/worth the effort I'll be buying spare clutch plates...
  14. Can they be shimmed though? I have an 1100 gearbox but nt a 750 to compare them.
  15. I know you can fit the 750 w gearbox to the 1100 cases but can you just swap say 1st and 2nd from the 750 into the 1100? I'm on a quest for 200mph and the 1100 will only do it with tall sprocket gearing. Thinking that swapping in a 750 gear or 2 will give it an easier time pulling away. Thoughts?
  16. Measured the stand on the standard 1100 w and it's about 240mm from the foot to bolt centre. I'll need to drag it out for an accurate measurement. The one on the oil cooled frame is 260mm from foot to centre though so I'm not sure what it came off now, definitely standard Suzuki though.
  17. Watercooled side stand is about 1" longer I think and a straight bolt on. I can measure up later if you need.
  18. Welded up now and I put a little brace in there too. I'll keep an eye on this but hopefully that should sort it out now.
  19. Thanks for the advice, I'll dig some stainless out and see if I can make something to spread the load better. Definitely build the joint up as well, should be easy to get a good fillet in there.
  20. Cracked on the pipe to the wastegate, it's opened up a bit so it may have been under a bit of strain. Will put a bit of support on it as well while it's off. Lent my tig to a mate so need to go and get it back.
  21. Need to fill a crack! Not too bad a job, headers should come off easily enough.
  22. Had a ride out to Caffeine & Machine on Sunday, was their Built Not Bought weekend so fitted in nicely. Rides great and forgot how good the boost is! Noticed a slight ticking from the top/front of the engine a few miles from home, sounds a bit like a loose header again as it was hardly noticeable but needs checking out. Hopefully nothing too serious.
  23. My 1100W only gets a filter every 2 years, its a fairing and Akra headers off job to change it and frankly I can't be arsed to do it every year. With the milage I do then every 2 years is fine.
  24. With my 1 cold start a day I've managed to get it to start, warm up, and restart from hot with no throttle. It likes the ignition timing about 17 degrees when its cold, dropping to 12 once the coolant is at 40 degrees. Fuel enrichment has stayed the same. Not quite as easy as setting a simple warm up ignition map. Under idle control there are 2 tables that control the ignition timing, one is coolant based and the other rpm. They don't quite allow the engine to reach the target rpm so I need to dig a little deeper but it's a positive step. Cranking timin
