The Suzuki service manual is far better than the Haynes manual and downloadable for free. I've been updating it, initially to get rid of the Japlish, but it's now way beyond that with around 3500 changes. The oil jet screw torque is 9.8 N-m and you're supposed to also use thread lock.
Regarding bending the ring land back in place: +1000 on "I wouldn't even think about it as an acceptable solution."
Conrod big end I.D. 38.000 – 38.016 mm
Crank pin O.D. 34.976 – 35.000
Crankshaft journal O.D. 34.982 – 35.000 mm
"Are the crank/conrod shells just aluminium?" If you mean the bearings, no way. Test with a magnet.
Thanks for the update, will do the magnet check, I was thinking of ahl shells but I think they are just Alu...have not found someone who has tested it.
Haynes have couple of typos...
If down to numbers I might end up with a second hand engine (with fingers crossed) and sell/keep the stuff that's ok for spares.
Ahl state they are aluminium,if they are I guess it's a pretty soft material (no alloys) and go bye bye rather fast
Have been looking for it and of course they are many bearings to choose from, I'm a bit confused as the letter code is ok, it's in the book but...what are the numbers replacing the letters?
I have also looked on the casing and found no letters on it.
How do I choose the right colours of the bearings? Thanks
Another question regarding the high volume gear for these engines, factory is 35T and I have read that ape and other brands do an upgrade of it and the difference is one teeth more on the gear, I have printed out a prototype at first look it could work but will need a run in time and it would sound loud,if this is correct, just one teeth more I make it in the cnc machine out of aluminium (should withstand...)
There should be a group of five letters and another of four numbers stamped on the crankshaft. The letters are for the crankshaft journals and the numbers are for the crank pins.
I'm aware that high volume oil pump gears are sold where the number of teeth are different. This has never made any sense to me as I thought that both the drive and driven gears had to be changed and that there are issues with center-to-center distances. Something similar is done with the transmission 1st gear to change the number of teeth. That makes even less sense. I don't claim to know much about gear design.
I don't know what I'm looking at but the top oil pump driven gear in your pic looks horrible. Has it just come out of a machining process? Making one out of aluminum sounds like a bad idea.
The other numbers on crank are L2222R
Just the numbers...hm maybe this on the picture?
Yes, the part is a plastic printed to check if the dimensions are correct, not for use, won't last a turn, alu bad idea...too soft I gues, what is the choice? Steel? Iron?
Can't find any others
So the ones on the cons are number and letter, giving the con bearing
And the two lines on the crank gives the upper and lower bearing value?
How do I know what thrust bearing I need to use?
Does anyone know the thread size of the stock O2 sensor and bung? I think it may be 12mm but haven't found it in writing anywhere.
Looking to install an 18mm wideband O2 sensor & don't yet know if I need the 12mm-18mm adapter (or even if the adapter will work very well and give accurate AFR...
Hi all! I have an extra, new OEM replacement slipon for a K6 GSX-R 1000 and I would like to sell it. I was wondering if it would fit a K5 model GSX-R 1000 as I have someone that redid his K5 model and needs a slipon and I was wondering if the one I had would fit?
Hello. Im looking for the size (ID) of the header primary tubes for an 07-08 GSXR 1000. I see most after market ones are 1 1/2" to 1 5/8" but i'm having a I'm having a custom header made for my application and need to know the size of the stock header primaries.
Thanks for the help.
