yeah the inner looked bad enuf to cause an issue ,but is very rare issue on street bikesRedliner said:The grooves on the inner basket I show were actually causing slipping and sticking. Replacing the inner and lightly cleaning up the outer cleared the issue.
HA! Cheers bud.. That's they're there forCALfeRacer said:Your engine pictures are so much better than mine are I think I'll have to use yours as reference when putting my engine back together hahaha.

Redliner... ;D hahaha always love the advice.. Thanks!!Redliner said:Yeah put some diesel or diesel/MMO mix under there and wash it out good. Don't be too worried about getting it spotless though. As soon as things are back together and you put oil in it, the cycle begins again.
Don't remove the rubber on the front outer cylinder studs. They help dampen an annoying ringing/buzzing sound. The same reason you have rubber pucks between the cooling fins.
If you have the option, choose vapor blasting. It also makes for a very attractive satin finish. Don't worry about paint. Tests were done on intercoolers that were bare aluminum vs painted black. The black ones performed better...negligibly so. Besides, look how many air-cooled bikes had painted motors from the factory such as Honda XL's.
Just be sure to DEGREASE THE SHIT OUT OF IT and treat it like a newborn with hemophilia: meaning don't drop it, ding it, or spill brake fluid on it.
