What are your plans for the bike ?

Are you gonna keep it for awhile and ride it ?







My normal pattern is to make it run and then sell it to finance the next project. I think I will hold on to this one for awhile. I am going to have way, way more into it than I could ever get out AND it would be nice to actually have a running bike when Greg calls and says, "LET'S RIDE!!" or when an EnduroFest comes along.



The next project is that original RT3 (#1) that started this whole Enduroholic adventure these many years ago now. It would be nice to have a rider while working on the next project for once.

I'll never improve my feeble riding abilities unless I put time in a saddle! Besides, I have sort of a goal to show up at a Patriot Guard Event on a ring-a-ding 2-smoker!

Lock tabs to hub splines, or tabs to hub holes like yours. The number varies from 1 to 3. Here is a kawi KH400 with one tab.



Dang, that is one CLEAN engine!!!


I think your thoughts are plausible. Certainly worth consideration if all else fails. The two prong washers are going in the misc. parts bin, so will be kept around.

Cool! Always fun to do our Gold Camp- Victor- Cripple Creek- Shelf Road- Canon City-Pizza Madness- Phantom Canyon run at least a couple of times a year and some Custer County rides for sure!

Your making some really nice progress- doing a little bit as you go along and is amazing how fast things come together...

This will be a great bike for you!
[ok]

I know huh! Supper clean. Mine had warped cases, paint in there, crack around journal boss, leaking, old rusty dowels, top cylinder gasket surface offset. I should have had a barrel of monkeys put it together for me... would have turned out better (I think!)

Due to some unexpected events, I only got a couple of hours in the shop so didn't make the progress I had hoped for, but still managed to finish the engine assembly before calling it a day yesterday.


Soaking the clutch plates








New (used) clutch hub lock washer in place








Torque down the nut and fold the washer up to lock it in place








Install the new Barnett Kevlar friction discs, steel plates and heavy duty springs

All done and ready for the cover. I could not find a torque value for the clutch pressure plate hold down bolts so used 6 lb/ft. Is this correct?










And voila, all buttoned up. (I spelled it right this time, Jim!! )









This seems to be a fairly common problem. There was a huge (ugly) wad of clear silicone sealing this all up. Any thoughts on a good repair for this?

Outstanding. After all, we don't want to be encouraging the violas at all; they're usually just lame violinists no longer able to play even the second violin part!

6 lb/ft. should be just fine, Larry. Think the book says something like 72-84 inch/lbs (6-7 lb/ft.).
