  1. thanks, goin to try both ideas.
  2. just recently, I was hoping there was another silencer or a special trick someone nows
  3. I realize I will loose power and thats fine, just need to make it as quiet as possible. Right now it has a pc exhaust, how much dif would a stock make?
  4. u should be glad u have alot up there. btw it can only retain so much before it runs down by the cam chain
  5. It may not hit at a lower rpm, higher the rpm the more the rod stretches. You can and should do a squish test.
  6. A piston to wall clearance issue is usually more of a rattling sound and yours is more of a ticking. Sounds like the piston is just touching the head or another issue but to me it sounds like a topend problem. I would take the topend off and check it out
  7. he has 4 listed http://stores.ebay.co.uk/docwobclearance/RACE-BIKES-/_i.html?_fsub=2883277014&_sid=42549094&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322
  8. cases alone r worth 150 -200.... i would say more like 400 even if the head was toast .... u would get that on ebay
  9. cold .... they tighten when warm
  10. check the valve clearances first to make sure that is the problem. And yes ur right a shim job at this stage won't last long and a valve job is required
  11. sounds like its off on the bottom if turning by hand causes it to jump.
  12. did u release the tensioner so the cam chain is tight. You cant start it with the tensioner off or it will jump. It locks up because the piston is hitting the valves when the timing gets that far off.
  13. it could be alot worse considering it has over a 100 hrs on it. I dont see a heat issue. I see it needed at least a ring job along the way. U use a castor base oil?
  14. I use the flywheel side but regardless both sides should match. The flywheel is just easier to tell if its lined up
  15. u need start the investigation .... take the valve cover off and check for the obvious, and then valve clearance , timing and go from there
