adjusted the floats as rsss396 suggested and checked all my grounds for a clean/rust free connection.  also, modified my new swinger for a chain slider and have it at powder coater; almost forgot, having my shocks serviced.  itching to ride i must say.

Thought about it sitting in the the toy hauler in the storage yard. Looked on Powder By The Pound for something that matches what I want to do.

Does that count?

Re-seated the beads on my HiPers, both front were leaking but now i've got em nice and even and torqued properly.

Next is to figure out why my shift shaft seal is leaking tranny oil like a sieve. Brand new seal and no wear grooves in the shaft?????

May be just a bad seal from the git go?? Mine leaks also...but it was a used motor.

Is the shift shaft bent? If you put  a new seal in try  putting sealer in the boss before you install the seal into it.

All I did was order some new Steamline brake lines and a TM Designworks Super Protector for the 86's new +4 swingarm.  I have been thinking about machining my own swingarm guard out of Delrin though...   Maybe this weekend, I can have the 330R and 450R up and going.

I had one do that.  My problem was the hole was egged out where the shift actually comes thru the case.  New seal would not fix this even with some sealer on it.  The shift shaft would move around too much in it's bore.  I took a good punch when the seal was removed and peened around the shift shaft on the aluminum to tighten it up.  If that makes sense.  It worked for me.

Yes, that makes sense. You cold formed the egg shape back to round to support the shift shaft. If the surface the seal goes into is broken or has been repaired the seal just spreads the crack open allowing the thin tranny oil to come through. Sometimes can be fixed, but sometimes the motor has to come out.

I just received my new chain slide, lower slide and new case saver and chain. All of which were destroyed last weekend when the chain slide jammed between the front sprocket, chain and case saver. Bent the lower case saver bolt but cracks the case!! Sooooo close to cracking case holes for the case saver bolts. Hopefully the new one piece will do better than the jaws style that wraps around the swing arm.
So now time to assemble and get ready for Silver Lake on the 27-28.
