By ignoring advise from other members about the rattling on idle, worn crank/damper splines, now have A2 cranks to fit.

Dammed photo bucket, now I have to retrieve and save photos and hopefully repost them, just thought I would say still here and the old girl is still waiting for the crankshaft change, whilst she has been standing on the side stand now hope oil dripping from water pump tell tail hole ???, no worries as stripping the lump down again but we're that coming from.

I Promise to finish the KR, already started to reassemble the engine, found the cause of the rattle, there was a shim missing from the gear cluster allowing the dogs of one of the gears to contact the crankcase, so the A2 crankshafts may have not been needed, well more spares to go with the bike, dating cert in place, so MOT and register left to do.
