    harsh shock after sitting

    My 05 450 was sitting for about a month. i live in so cal and it has gotten pretty cold the past month. today i went to sit on my bike and the rear shock would only go down a few inches. i jumped up and down on it and rode it around the yard then played with the clickers and it started to loosen up back to normal. the shock was rebuilt september of 07 and ive rode it alot since then and this is the first time it has happened. i know air in the shock will cause that but it has been well over 10 hours of riding. can it be the cold weather. ive ony got about 3-4 hours on it this season. so what is up?

    measuring piston ring gap?

    What ways do you guys measure the ring gap? i tried putting it in the cylinder but not sure if thats the most accurate. What works the best in grinding it down? Wouldnt the smaller the gap the better?
  11. Is it okay to change the intake valves and springs without having the exhaust valves done? I could barely fit anything between the lobe and valve but the left exhaust valve was .014 and the right was .015. i want ss valves and also adding a 12.5:1 je piston. ps: i tried searching the thread but its a pain in the neck sometimes. all i need is if its a good choice bad choice or dumb question. And also im in riverside ,ca where is a good shop for head work. Where is SUSPENSION BY JAKE his number (951-681-2829) is not working? GOD BLESS EVERYONE I LOVE THIS SITE:thumbsup:
