Re: roller bearings in drive shaft housing

Managed to push the boot over the u-joint back. The bearings are too big to be from there. Searching through the parts list 91062-MG9-013 Bearing, needle, 20x35x18 could be where it came from. With no damage to the seal I am hesitant about tearing apart the final drive. -Mark Have had the FD apart ...

Re: Wing threw a timing belt ... what now?

Pistons look good, to check for impact, rotate the crank until the piston crowns are out all the way and make sure they come out even with the block. You are going to need new valves as mentioned, if so, I'd take both heads off, take into a local machine shop and have the heads freshened before putt...

Ok cool thanks a lot. Are all of these larger in diameter and are they in a metal or plastic casing?
Most if not all are larger and metal casings. It doesn't take much to modify the filter holder to fit these larger filters. Do a search of this site and you will find info on this.

Re: New to the Forum - Could use a bit of advice!

Nice ride. Power to the bike goes through the connections of the starter solenoid (obvious). When the battery is connected to the solenoid, there are two pins that are live at all times with a good fuse installed. The other two pins are for powering the internal solenoid switch allowing power from t...

Your first picture of the head shows a carbon build up under the exhaust valve, not a lot from what I can see. Carbon build up under the exhaust valve(s) is a primary source of low compression and will get worse overt time. I would recommend taking the other head off while you are at this, take them...
