Re: Timing- / cam-alignment, new CCT's, valves...

It's only the valve stem oils seals that really need to be original Honda parts if your going to change them. There's a couple of thou differance between the inlets and exhaust which you don't get with the pattern part oil seals. You can use a pattern part head gasket (much cheaper) and you can get ...

Re: Man down again FFS!

Conspiracy theory is just a fashionable term invented to create either denial or political diversion just like the term terroist. A member of the armed forces would not get called a terroist yet they go out and kill people. The only differance is that one fights for their own cause and one fights be...

They should be drunk and chasing haggis around the field about now. Mmmmmm square sausage sarnies. I'm hungry. Oh and I'm rather partial to haggis sandwich too. Yum yum.

Re: Petrol tank removal

It is easy. It's harder to ride a bike than remove the tank :lol:

Don't loose your little rubbers along the side rim at the base of the tank. You will want to remove the petrol cap for painting. It's only three bolts that hold that in place. The others are smaller and only there for show.

Re: Manual Cam Chain Tensioner Installation Guide (MCCT's)

I generally dont put any on the ones that run down through the cam caps and into the head but it does no harm if you do. I usually do put a little on the small 10mm bolt at the front. Tighten this up before fully tightening down the bigger ones in the cam caps and don't overdo these as they can snap...

Re: Timing- / cam-alignment, new CCT's, valves...

Oh dear.....what a mess. Actually getting the head of is really simple, what will most likely give you some grief is getting the springs compressed to get the collets out and then back in so a spring compressor is required ( extra expense :( ) then we dont know the state of the valve guides if the v...

Re: Poor us, shunned by Savage Arabia!

I think Saudi is one the biggest problems along with the support the West give them but the whole middle east issue is a lot more complicated than that. One could even blame the British for a lot of the problems over there. It goes right back to Laurance of Arabia and some of todays troubles have br...

If your talking about putting two nuts together it makes no differanc at all. It's the two mating surfaces as one nut is tightend onto another that stops the one below from working loose.

Somebody has been messing with the media embedding and youtube is not on the new list thats been added. Like most softwares they deteriate as time goes on becuase developers can't leave things alone. If things are not broken they won't have anything to fix and be out of a job. It's a bit like instal...
