Agreed about the cross hatch pattern I did try to add some with a oiled scotchbright pad it worked quite well. Have to say I was peeved that Athena don’t include a gasket for the rear water hose to head connection what’s that all about? Top end is all built up now. I’ll finish off tomorrow, as it was bloody hot in our garage this afternoon.
She’s all finished started 3rd kick. Oil pump stroke, I don’t remember setting when I restored her I don’t know why I guess in the excitement I forgot. When I checked it it was not at .010 thou and it took some searching to find a small washer I could use as the start point and then add some of the factory shims To get it right.
I did also put LC pistons in this time, when it was rebored it came with YPVS pistons both Mikita ones 1.25 oversize but I thought I’d put LC ones as I had the choice.
Not ridden it yet WSBK and F1 on TV so it’ll have to wait for now
