M6x1.00 so should be the same pitch. (I definitely swapped them round with SR500 adjusters.) The length varies a bit between the various models.teazer said:That's interesting to hear. Do you know what thread size they are?
Or do as I did on my XV1000/TR1 engine and omit the base gasket and use liquid gasket instead. Got the piston 0.5mm closer to the squishband, all of a sudden making it run a lot more efficient as it got close(r) to the magic 1.00mm mark.teazer said:One trick that people seem to underestimate is getting the squish right - or at least making the squish band work. That usually requires the head and piston and barrel to be machined which will raise compression a touch. The result of getting it to work should be more power everywhere in the range. Good squish allows higher compression before detonation sets in.
I worked at custom shop briefly when I was in college. We took in a bike that was featured on Bike exif to get it road worthy. Dude paid 20k for the bike and then had to bring it to us to make it ride-able. I literally had to go through every component because nothing worked. the GSXR fork swap was so poorly planned that the front wheel would contact the header under braking among many other stupid things.Psychopasta said:Remember that BikeExif never state whether the bike is a runner or not...
Thanks for asking man! Yeah, still around and still really wanting to move ahead with the project!I keep checking in to see if there's an update here, it's been a while! You alright, man?
Yepp, still chugging away, piece by piece. A lot of time has gone into the XV535 projects we started working on as well. But hopefully will be riding this one summer 2021 (have said that 3 years in a row now )Nice! Iv been off the forums for a while... Glad to see there is still progress.
Every time I have had my bike down to the frame, I think of making a custom titanium or aluminum frame. I have a solidworks model of the frame to do stress analysis so changing to aluminum would be quick.
On a side note, anyone know the part # or connector series used for the CDI box? I working on an entire new wiring harness and that thing is my last connector to get.
