Wow & yeah y'all said it all (it SUCKS how they designed that).

I just thought routing the wide-band lambda on my 750 was tight but it doesn't hold a candle to that.

BTW, this thread is my absolute fav on the R. So looking forward to Tin ripping it down the highway when he's done.

Well. Carbs and air box are in and buttoned up. Only snag is after tearing the garage up looking for the filter I remembered I gave it to Russell when he was here cause I was going the pod route. Looks like we are done here till the new filter arrives.

Isn't everything sideways in Canadia?

It's no easy feat, bring back an antique bike back from the dead. But the rewards are SO high...

Tin,
I really like your videos! Short, to the point, etc. I like your narration too.
Other than what you've already tried to get those plugs out of there, I have no other ideas.
Keep up the Strong work! You'll get 'er done.

My 1st thought would be use a heat gun to soften up the plastic plug and remove the pins.

Ok false alarm. A finer screwdriver and going at it from the opposite side of the wires worked. Popped all four out slick as snot.

It is absolutely perfect out at the moment but I have some running around to do. Will fix this up tonight and if she fires up will do the carb sync. Just want the engine sorted so I can get to all the little stuff like bleeding brakes and need to pull the clutch and inspect. Pisses me off when it is apart and won’t at least run.

Spectacular. Soldered all the terminals on the wires and came to find that I managed to bigger the plastic connector. Two would not click in. Must have gouged out the ridge they clip on. Shrink wrapped them and plugged her in. Fired right away.

I did the carb sync as well. 1 and 2 were about 1 1/2 off. 3 & 4 were perfect. 2 & 3 were 2 1/2 off. Dialed in now. much smoother.

Are you still missing the air cleaner in the OEM box? It'll help the a/f's to have that in there too, as I know you knw this.

Glad it runs!

Yeah. No air cleaner. It will run better once that is in. I don’t think it will affect the sync much. It will certainly help the carbs pull fuel better.

Looks to me that you need a bit of heat on the end of the shrink wrap where the wire enters. The bike is sounding good with those carbs dialed in. Great work!

Yeah, I didn't realize it at the time but the shrink wrap I used was only 2:1. By the time I got a piece wide enough to go over the connector it didn't want to shrink tight to the wire. I have some more electrical to tidy up and will heat it with an air gun & squish it flat with my fingers. I just wanted to hear it run at that particular moment.

I also found a voltage gauge in the clearance bin for 17 bucks. It tucks into the front nicely and doesn't interfere with the swing of the forks at all. I will have to pull the cowling to install but that is another day. The cowling was coming again off to finish the electrical tidy up anyway. Now I want the matching oil temp gauge for the other side.

OK, cool fact I discovered. I found an owners manual on line and apparently the OEM chain from the factory was a continuous chain. There was no master link , one solid chain Replacing the chain required dropping the swing arm.

Thanks.


(Just between you and me, she is running with out the copper header gaskets at the moment. I will put them in this weekend and she will not have that intermittent ticky sound up front.. Don't tell the guys.)

I don't use the copper ones. Haven't had one fail on me yet...

That's what it listed as the OEM part. The Hindle headers had metal crush washers but since I went back to the stock pipes I scrounged up a set of stock gaskets. Not sure if it will make any difference but I don;t have much experience with these bikes and took the guess work out of it.
