I can't see how the wool would be blocking the outlet though. I've gone through it in my head a few times. Pretty sure it would have had to be outside the main pipe. Maybe wrapped around before the packing went over the top? Not sure. I guess we'll find out soon enough.. the scenario you've provided definitely would kill the top end.

Any suggestions for the swarf? I don't want it going down the cases, and given that it's the leading edge and just about touching the crank it makes it hard to get in there to do any work. In an ideal world you'd have the cases split and dress it up properly. I'm not keen on going that far in.

Ah ok, I mis read, thought it was covering the pipe.. I'd grab the piece with some pointy vice grips and pull towards the out side of the case. Maybe even stuff a clean rag in there first incase it takes more than a wiggle. My 04' gassy cases were a mis matched poorly cast set of cases and I cleaned them up heaps with noticeable gains. But I know you don't want to delve that deep on this one.

I'm not sure I'll even have much room to grab with. I'll have a lookssee in the tool box. I'm thinking packing some grease between the case and crank. That way if it breaks or falls it should hang up. Probably even be muchos easier if I pull the jug..

Just need to decide if I can be arse opening the wallet again.

And if you're taking the jug off might as well pull the head, measure the squish band, calculate the trapped volume and comp ratio, and throw a fresh slug in too..

10 minutes to pull cylinder . It would make it easier to protect bottom end if you are touching inlet port. You could check ring end gap, bottom end movement and cylinder condition .

Just throw a new slug in there for peace of mind. Namura are under $100 delivered with bearing! You know you want to check squish & big end play!

Cheers for reed number too mate

I haven't made the opportunity to do anything with it since last update. Still sitting there with the reed block out. Still tossing up pulling the barrel or not. Don't think I will. Received a bore scope in the mail so will have a look down the plug hole soon.

Been a busy round of days off, both during the day and after hours.. all while nursing the man flu. Could be another week before I get to test ride again. This year is passing by far too quickly with not enough engine hours!!!!

Damn straight! My bike has almost been in hibernation this year. I just got it back from the doc, it was suffering from mistaken identity. Anywhoo, it lives to ride again so I'll put it back into some training.

Good luck with the inspection. Hopefully you find what you're looking for.
