Email Lani at Copper Gaskets Unlimited.  You won't be able to use stock head gaskets after boring the cylinders 2mm over.  I would skip shaving the head until after you complete your clearance checks.  It's a lot harder to add metal back on than it is to take more off (ask me how I know).

which is why I have 3.5 motors in the garage and haven't sold any of them yet.  Easier to pull a part off another motor than add metal  ;D

Pity your so far from Florida, I need a spare motor  ;)
Get a 1/16" thick head gasket with a 69.5mm 'hole' and a 1/32" copper base gasket, stock sizes
Lani has made quite a few of them by now (I can't remember if I've had 4 or 5 and I know he did at least 5 more in one session)

Yeah, he made a copper gasket for me too.

I still have the GS850, you want me to drag it down to Florida in Oct?

Had a fun afternoon making and fixing electronic stuff.
Modified my soldering iron to have low and high power (cut lead, fitted a lamp switch and a bridging diode, when 'OFF" AC goes through diode and cuts power by roughly half. Couldn't get accurate temps as tip is so small but it looks like 500+f to less than 300f.


Then I repaired an LED running light, all 3 LED's were burned out
It was probably 9~10 volt being run on 12~14 volt.
 I cut copper track and fitted a resistor so it now works fine up to 13.7 volts.
Original LED's were 3mm but there is room for 5mm, may have to modify lens (when I find it  ;D )

The circuit board is probably about an inch long, picture is enlarged a few times  ;D

 After that I removed clear LED's from some instrument lights I bought and fitted superbright amber LED's in place (with correct resistors) plus fitted new leads to the 'neutral' light  (green LED, wires were only held on by the heat shrink tube  ::)
 My first actual foray into electronics that worked exactly as expected  8) ;D
All simple enougth stuff but I needed to do something I could actually finish for a change

Forgot to mention, also picked up a right side footrest hanger for a CB400f to fit on 'Blue Bike'.
Moves footrest back about 3"~4" not as radical as full on rearsets

Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck
My CJ391 has been stolen
It's in Britain somewhere. Was stolen from shed in South Wales
I'm wondering if it was the same people who stole the last one a few years ago.
I didn't contest that so they got a 'free bike'
This one I'm really pissed about

It's real distinctive as it has modified RD350 carbs, 70mm pistons, 'custom' exhaust, Maico rear mudguard, GS125 headlight Yamaha XT350 handlebars, CB250 tank, orange seat, plus, it's yellow
