Slingy 750 frame with bandit 12 lump


Recommended Posts

I have put 1100 teapot engine into 750K frame without taking anything off. It is tight, but can be done.

You have to play with lower back engine mount. Either make spacer which you slide into engine or drill mounting holes on the frame to 12mm.

Once engine is in place, only way to remove valve cover is to take all engine mounting bolts off. That way engine drops a few cm and you are able to take cover off.

So protip, adjust your valve clearances before mounting the engine.

Engine is in now but I took the sump off to squeeze it in and now I have the problem of not being able to get my fucking rocker cover on!!

J/k frame, breather off, and sump off makes life a lot easier. You wont get the cam cover back on once the engine's in situ.

L/m frame, breather off

You was warned !:o

Sorry to sound stupid but how do I tell if it’s an l/m frame?

It’s definitely a j/k 748 frame. I sold it you I think. It’s a gr77c import if I remember right.

......done until the next valve adjustment interval ....or if you forgot , while the engine was out.....that interval may be sooner than later .

Well let’s hope it didn’t need them doing, because I’ve never done valve clearances before
