It's bloody cold in Melbourne right now. I got the fireplace in the man cave hot to get the engine parts up to temp before painting with VHT satin black.
Then I baked them for an hour to cure.

Well I seem to be building the bike from the oddball year. Parts for a 73 or a 75 onwards are much easier to find.....
So I had to cut most of my own gaskets

How nice is it assembling a clean and painted engine. So much better than working on my dirtbike engine.

I have not been able to find an oil pump for this model so running pre mix for now.
Bolted the exhaust back on and the carb and took it for a ride.
Gear changes work well now and overall a big improvement in power through the bottom and mid range. Top end is still lacking though.
Will need to do some work on the jetting I think.

Jetting changes are proving positive by going richer on the main jet. Ordered the next 2 sizes to keep testing.

Time to start on the front end.
Made brackets and a number plate. Planning to round off the corners of the plate little.
Ordered some smaller led indicators to replace these monster old Suzuki dirtbike ones.
Also ordered a fork brace that I will use to mount the front guard too.
Finally making some progress
