    Tappet buckets on Ebay...anyone tried these?

    Cams come with from Web with stock sprockets welded on, I asked if they would install the adjustables instead but they said they won’t do that for whatever reason. Have to grind old welds off, press off stock sprocket, press on new carriers, tack carriers, then bolt on the sprockets. Even offered to pay extra for them to do it lol ended up using a local guy I trust

    Sprockets bolted to carriers, carriers tacked to cams so they don’t spin. Still adjustable

    ...the carriers? Why would anybody weld an adjustable sprocket lol

    Web cams + falicon sprockets + machine shop labor to TIG the sprockets on. 540/539 is too much cam without a stroker. Bottom end will suffer

    Same. Even with my dealer discount it was still like $150 for the set, but much cheaper than wiping out my $800 set of cams

    Go for it if you want but I wouldn’t use anything other than oem. You’re only replacing one tappet so just spend $4 more and get an oem one. Kawi p/n 12032-S001 $49.85

    theres a kfx head on ebay with cams for $450, you could buy that then sell the kfx cams to recover some of the cost? Dont use the kfx cams if you buy it. i have a spare bare head but the journals are wiped and im assuming thats what the issue with your head is journals can be repaired by a good machine shop but its expensive, need to be welded and line bored. maybe get a quote from edco or someone similar you trust

    74jimbo's engine build thread

    I have a used crank in decent shape id be willing to part with if needed. Might have an output shaft too but full disclosure i grenaded my trans and i dont remember if its damaged, id have to dig through my boxes of parts. started a stroker build like years ago and still havent finished it so i have boxes and boxes and boxes of stuff lol edit: think i have an assortment of case halves and a head as well but they would need repairs

    Well you were right i was able to spin it out with a pick and a pair of pliers. Plus side of having almost enough spare parts to build another entire motor is I already had that bolt and didn't have to try and source it on a Sunday. Bad side of having all those parts is sometimes you tend to miss things that are installed on one set of cases and not another... Like this guy. &%$#@!. Looks like I'm splitting the cases again.... literally nothing to do but laugh at my stupidity. Now trying to determine the absolute bare minimum amount of disassembly I can do to get this thing in. No way in hell I'll be able to get the crank out of the right case half with that stupid pin wedged in the hole in the hot rods crank. Hoping I'll be able to just pull the flywheel and remove the left case half and leave everything in the right half. I literally have the entire bottom end assembled apart from the clutch and my plastic oil pump drive gear. Ha-Ha, I'm stupid.

    12-14MPH and Spotters like no gas

    I always used Ricky Stator
  12. You mean you can't thread the puller onto the crank? Just use the primary nut

    test rode my first drz, have a question

    Mostly street with some light off-roading go SM, mostly off roading with light street riding go S.

    I'll +1 that, had the exact same experience with a stator that tested in spec but caused misfires and stumbling until I gave up and just replaced it

    Got a bit farther. Installed the counterbalancer driven gear making sure it was indexed correctly (punch marks must line up) Washer goes on then the nut which gets blue lock tite. Primary drive gear next Rub marks on the gear should help you tell which way it gets installed Need to pick up some red lock tite for the primary nut so I hand tightened and left myself a note Gear change mechanism is assembled next, made a small mistake here The mechanism is a little complicated to look at but easy to figure out. Two springs in the holes, pins and then the "wings" that get installed with the larger shoulder facing to the outside Screws get blue lock tite At this point I noticed my mistake... Service manual didn't mention this guy Disassembled my shift mechanism again to install it and the damn bolt sheared. Didn't see a torque spec so I shot for 15 ft/lbs, next time I'll use my wrist and my noggin like I should have. Shouldn't be a huge deal to get out but that puts a damper on what little time I had today. Gonna go buy a left handed drill bit and hope that pulls it out, and pick up some more lock tite while I'm at it. Bonus pic of the bike looking lonely, just noticed I have no front brake pressure, hoping it's just dirty fluid from sitting so long and I don't need a master cylinder Will be back at it tomorrow.
