  1. I don't know, although I assumed another installation method would be to debur all surfaces, heat the new sprocket in an oven to 160C ( sorry I don't know F), Then it would just slide over the crank snout and also allow enough time before cooling for a rotation adjustment if necessary. Is this acceptable?
  2. Hi, i think I remember a picture of an XR200 head section cut so you could see the port, jackets and valve throats. If someone has that can they please post it up, It would really help the guy that is going to massage my head. He does headwork on road race heads so he has the smarts, he said that a cut away will show him the limit.
  3. Be careful of low cost Ebay complete gasket kits, the one i purchased has very thin paper gaskets compared to OEM, What effect this centre case gasket may have I can only imagine with gear and crank clearances, the head and base gaskets could be an issue is not calculated. In hind sight I wish i spent the extra $$ on OEM.
  4. Terry text me this morning, he has been away fire fighting for a while. Being from the other side of the world I googled Oregon and saw it has some rugged mountainous terrain, fire season.
  5. Lets see some pics please.
  6. Terry has been on this site in the last week! Presumably seen this topic and read his private messages.
  7. Its very unsetaling that I can't make contact.
  8. The most common way would be to re instal the clutch and then wedge a soft coin between the clutch and crankshaft gears. Then just crack open all three nut,s. Regarding the flywheel, yes you need a puller, there must be some cheap ones on Evilbay that can do the job, nothing special. DO NOT HIT IT WITH A HAMMER.
  9. Thank you, That has the info that has latest contacts.
  10. No email replies, phone rings through to a full mailbox ?????
  11. He doesn't reply to emails, Anyone have a current phone number. Thanks.
  12. Hi, Can someone please post the contact details for Terry, Team Rude. The business card please. Thanks, Mark
  13. Am i wrong or does the pick of the cam show that the lobe is worn down with burrs on the outside?
  14. Back in the day Holden Auto engine plant had 15 sizes of STD bore, The blocks were bored, honed, then an air actuated GO/ No go plunger was used to determine leakage, which determined which set of pre sized standard pistons were installed. The police specials aways were fitted with number 15 piston no matter the size.
  15. That swing arm is cool, yes try those pictured above RM adjusters or just google other bike chain adjusters in images. Well worth the effort in coolness, I don't know, although if I had to guess I would say it looks like a White Brothers product.
