Many Thanks to Boxbridge (Doug)

He helped me out a lot with my questions but looks to have solved the mystery of the left/right piston mix up :P

He suggested that the circlip from the pistons would probably be missing from the "outer" side, so that would determine which bore they came from =D>

As far as I can see the only reason for Winter is to get engines rebuilt :lol: Let us know how you're getting on..

I see I posted on 30th Oct to announce I had started stripping the top end :shock:

Today it ran for the first time , well after I had to put some more juice in the battery :oops:

Just let it warm up gently on drive but haven't taken it out yet !

So still early days until I take a ride out, but they have salted the roads around here today #-o

Theres a dam site more unions and connections on that engine! The carbs look superb. 48 to 59 Is a step up in torque that looks substantial!

Yes well pleased with the torque :mrgreen:

It really makes you think what they do to these engines at the factory to get such paltry torque and horsepower figures

Must be my DIY tuning of the head with my rat tail files :lol:

Taking rear pegs off too to lighten it a bit more

So have so far
removed front and rear metal mudguards
changed the Chromed rims to alloy rims
removed centre stand
removed standard silencers
Swopped metal side panels for later plastic ones
Removed metal chain guard
Removed rear footrests

Got a Fandango oil temperature gauge that sits in the filler cap :P
These engines run hot and in traffic they start cooking so will be interesting what it reaches
In the notes it says 80 degrees is the oil running temperature :?:
