Re: Camshaft shims

Something definitely wrong. No, you can't run without shims. Are you shimming the head on the bench or on the bike? I can't imagine that fireblade valves from an il4 engine would be the same diameter as a Firestorm which has a much larger bore. But it's possible. Are the spring retaining collets cor...

Re: Running on one cylinder

Have you checked the vacuum tap diaphragm? If running really rich and one cylinder not running I'd be looking at plugs first. If the cold one is sooted up then it's likely to be a fuelling issue. If not that, a coil, plug cap or lead- swapping them over identifies this. Was it previously ok? If you ...

Re: VTR track bike conversion

The marshals get a backhander from the bloke selling baffles. At least you got to keep some of their gravel as a souvenir. Are you not back at brands in May? [attachment=0]PXL_20210405_154417879.MP.jpg[/attachment Here's my 94 year old mother in law on a "drive your own car round Brands" d...

Re: Wicky...

One of those occasions where you can say he was a "nice" person and it didn't mean anything more than was said. I enjoyed riding with him, he was genuine and meant well to everyone, and that's a rare thing these days. I'll always remember his bike scaffold! Farewell, Wicky, ride safe, mate...
