Re: Right gasket set but different head gasket.

I usually make 20 mistakes for every one thing I get right, but in my defence, I put things together wrong just in case they fit better :lol:

Re: Right gasket set but different head gasket.

:lol: Wow! you're the first person in the entire history of the World to make a mistake :lol: I happen to know that just about every vehicle ever made only has genuine spare parts made for roughly two years after a particular model ceases production, they may make an absolutely huge quantity but pro...

You don't want to use a 30+ year old gasket on a 30+ year old bi...

Re: Right gasket set but different head gasket.

Hi hoops and welcome. As far as I was able to work out the differences between the gaskets is down to the carburetor types used on the engines. A cylinder head from a 79/80 engine with slide carbs won't fit on an 81/82 engine with CV carbs. I'm presuming (by my own theory :roll: ) that the gasket fo...

Re: Coil Relay Mod on 83 650

Its' just a little trick to improve your spark by a couple of percentage points. When the power has to travel though the entire wiring harness to get to the coils, you lose as much as a full volt. By going directly from the battery, you get full battery power each time. :lol: HA! next thing you'll ...

Re: any opinions on these different carburetor rebuild kits?

I rebuild carbs as a hobby, so I buy o-rings in bulk from Marcos Rubber, and stainless steel hex bolts from Bolt Depot. That is basically what I had to resort to, I bought a box of assorted size O-rings from ebay but I tested them first by dropping one in a small pot of petrol to see if they actual...

Re: any opinions on these different carburetor rebuild kits?

Hi juntjoo and welcome. What year and model bike do you have? has it got slide carbs or CV carbs as both of these sets are for CV type. If you are unsure what type they are then you can check by looking at the side of the carb, just above the float bowl for the part number. I do apologize if you alr...
