    So will be fitting up the rad guards, pipe guard & cable kit tomorrow night

    Should be a good w'end on the bike I will say


    Is it spring already?

    All these new Gassers, great to see. Now thereíll be some substance to long term reports!

    Nice work boys.

    • Did the starter re-cable mod, still wouldn't start, hot or cold.

      Added an 8mm cable between Main Frame and Sub Frame, instant start up.
      Almost only have to breath on the button now, 1 crank and away.

      One of you farted just before she got here, now she thinks it was me.

      • Poor Earth back to the frame the issue then??

          Cant pinpoint it yet, just thought I'd try it as I had no new battery available.

          • I haven't even stripped mine down yet to see how they're wired up. Few days off coming up so will probably put a few hours in the shed.

            • I ran bigger leads all through the starter circuit and made an extra from the battery negative to the starter motor. Also ran a 6mm2 from the earth point of the harness on the coil mount to the negative as well. So yeah Jake I think it was/is a bad earth situation for those that occasionally donít start. Mine has been absolutely faultless on the button.

                They are funny beasts, especially when you throw alloys into the mix.

                On my 2010 I could happily earth the kill switch to the top triple where the speedo mounts.. My 2013 exactly the same wouldn't even consider it.. Had to mount back to the coil.

                I'm just going to wing it and see how she runs. Personally couldn't care less if the button works or not. But if I need to run a battery for the ecu etc, then might as well have some benefit of it.

                  Fair enough too. If you can kick from cold itíd save the life of any 2tís starter system. All are a bit light duty for my liking. Iíd just run a small gauge earth point back to the battery so you arenít earthing through a painted subframe.

                    you could try some star washers on the existing earthing points as a start if you couldnít be bothered running additional cables. It can be surprising how effective they can be for obtaining continuity / reducing resistance.

                    Put one top and bottom of the lug as shown in the picture. Donít use zinc plated ones.

                    • I know how good they are but Iíve always had a unfounded reason for hating them! I always prefer a clean full surface area contact of the lug... not sure why though!

                        Youíve got to stop the hate, star washers are the goods for earthing

                        Corrosion on an earthing point is obviously not ideal, it can be a deal breaker.

                        Paint is a protective layer assisting in inhibiting corrosion. A star washer will penetrate a painted surface allowing contact with the base material while maintaining the paint for increased corrosion resistance.

                        They work great on anodised aluminium too :grinning-

                        • Just a heads up, I've had some starter issues with my 17, from the usual culprit of poor earthing to other major issues such as the starter ring coming loose and ejecting a bolt through the stator cover! But that's all in the pass now and each issue fixed... Until last weekend when I was on a ride and the starter was playing up again, but this time it was making a horrendous noise like grinding metal. So once I got home off came the covers again.

                          At first I thought it was the Bendix being a bit sticky and not full engaging on the starter ring, but all seemed nice and smooth. That's when with further inspection I noticed that the hole for the starter gear on the Bendix cover was no longer round, giving the gear too much play and enabling it to skip off the Bendix. Well do you think there is any replacement covers in the country? We'll NO. So plan B is to machine the hole round again and bigger so I can fit a bushing in there to help reduce the wear.

                          I don't know if the 18s have had an bushing placed in there covers but it's something to keep in mind.

                          • You're not the first one to report this. I very much doubt the later ones have been changed too. I should look. I have my covers off at the moment!

                            In other news, addressing a post back on page 99, I measured some pistons up for gibnut.. The surface I had them on must have been less than ideal. Went through it all again and appears there's only a bee's dick difference in dome height between the GG 250 and 300 slugs.

                            Only measuring again for my head work after discussing with TSP.

                            • Did my top end at 9400km , so 3500km and really i could have just cleaned the power valve up and reassembled the thing ,everything seemed happy , I'm shocked cause I drowned it something bad and thought there would be some evidence , tuff as nails these motors .
