Does it have memory to prove how fast 360 is?  ;D

I don't think so, but there's a phone app for that.

Would be nice to be running one less cable but I've got too many parts on order. Plus I'm kinda fond of that hunter green on the OEM speedo

Still cleaning the inside of fuel tank. Had to re-soak with acetone to remove some of the loose red kote, followed by warm water and simple green. Full of phosphoric acid as we speak for surface rust.

While waiting for my electronics pan and rearset mounts to be cut, got a little idea to mod the original rear inner fender. Planning on using the cutout as a mold to lay up some fiberglass. Traced some quick sharpie lines and hit it with the dremel and voila!

Had some time before work this AM. Finished prepping the inside of tank, dried it out (hit er with the leaf blower then heat gun). Filled her up with some sparkly POR15. Hopefully this stuff holds up, got too many hours into this fuel tank right now



Getting organized for crankcase reassembly.

POR15 tank seal is the best. I had one tank with it and it looked like a factory new tank. Aaron now has my bike and I bet it still looks perfect.

No idea what's inside the tank I'm using.
 Looks terrible, sealed over the rust and god knows what else, works fine thugh without any build up in filters or carbs
 Make sure tensioner pivot is free to move while you have things apart

Got the lower and upper halves of the case reassembled. Kick start mechanism functioning properly, oil separators and tensioner push bar installed in the lower. Gearshift mechanism, transmission main shaft and countershaft with new oil seals, cam chain, and tensioner reinstalled.

Shifted through the gears and everything's nice.






@PJ - Are you referring to where the tensioner pivots on the dowel? If so it is oiled and moves freely.

Sealed the cases this morning, reinstalled the oil pump, pickup, clutch and idler gear. Couldn't find the updated oil pickup so I'll just be keeping a close eye on the oil for now until one comes up on eBay. Fitted HD clutch springs courtesy of bore-tech, keeping OEM friction plates and discs until I burn them out.

I'm deleting the electric start (save your flames, I know it's a "stupid" mod), and I've removed both of the starter gears and the starter clutch. I've seen the alternator rotor milled or filed down to "balance" it once removing the clutch. Is this absolutely necessary or is it acceptable to reinstall the rotor without removing the mounting tabs for the clutch?  Is there a noticeable imbalance when the motor is running?
