Bike is back together, 1st test ride today!
Well after my 2nd go around with the cylinder studs I got the bike together and running, so today is the 1st long distance test ride.
I did take the bike for a short ride yesterday (about 10 miles) but it started to rain so the ride was cut short.
I started the repair on Sunday and finished it up Monday, it took me a bit longer to do the repair then usual but it was DAMN HOT outside so I took a few more breaks .
I only found 1 cylinder stud that was pulled (front cylinder behind the spark plug) I did check the torque on all the cylinder studs BEFORE I tore the top end down and all the other 7 cylinder studs torque settings were right where they were suppose to be.
I only had to take the jug off the front cylinder so that cut my repair time down a little, I did replace the .030 Cometic head gaskets with .040 Cometic head gaskets so I did have to tear the head off the rear cylinder.
So I am crossing my fingers and hoping for the best and if the bike runs good then it is off to the dyno for a good tune.
