    Strange thing is I checked the camera in the other cylinders and they were dry, but this one as you can see was quite wet

    I only used like 3 little pumps of my oil squirt bottle, didn’t think to be to much maybe it was

    still learning as I go

    motor will come out regardless, and I’ll post some more in depth pics at a later date

    but for the excercise and passing on results on here for anyone interested in one of these and their current resolution will hopefully answer a few questions for some

    It’s def not a snap on scope, but happy with it all the same

    Too keen for me, I'd try running the motor in the hope that the heat would release the rings if they're stuck on the piston. Maybe a bit of penetrene in each chamber, too.

    Had a couple of deliveries today...
    Postie bike bits.. and crimping tool so I can sort out a few connections on the SRX.. I just couldnt get the right crimping dies for the other tool I have.
    I wont be using the Pod filter initially... I want to see how it runs on the standard filter setup first.
    I still have an aftermarket CDI coming as well... all jobs for the weekend... Off to Dubbo & Narromine for the next 2 days... finally getting out of the house :)

    I reckon, and some will disagree, that the standard air box, on a road bike that’s not going to the race track or the local racer road and run at 10 10/ths, is generally the best option. The guys at the factory knew a heap of stuff and had access to mountains of factory data. They knew that engine efficiency, maximum power, and what the bikes seat of the pants first impressions were, was a fairly complex balancing act. Getting a motor to have maximum low and mid range grunt and maximum high rpm horsepower is extremely difficult with pod filters.. also, I’ve noticed jetting requirements change markedly between a freshly oiled KnN and the same KnN once it’s done a thousand ks and becomes slightly more porous. It’s also highly unlikely pods are as efficient at filtering dirt as a sealed, filtered air box. The upside of pod filters is they can give slightly more top end power. They also make carburettor removal way easier which is just as well as they are going to come off a heap of times getting jetting even close to perfect.

    Yep, I have the Unifilter and am yet to oil it. I also have a kit with alternative jets that I bought to do the original carby so I will see how it goes and adjust / replace as necessary.
    I am not a fan of Pod filters on Standard carbies so it won’t be used.

    Hi to all.
    My new fuel line and 2 x clamp's have arrived. The clamp's are very small , measuring I.D 6.81mm. The new clamp's have a lot of tension on them though , so will see what happen's when there fitted. I may still leave the drip container under the carb's just to make sure.I really don't want any more damage paint work. Went through a box of tissue's on the last fuel leak :headbang:, so i don't want any more.

    My new harness arrived yesterday from Thailand for the SL125 and my SRX 3WP harness is in Sydney and hopefully will be delivered tomorrow.
    As long as it is here by the weekend anyway.

    My SL125 seat arrived today from Thailand. Longest part was After Customs clearance time delivery. DHL uses Aust Post at this end.
    My new gauges arrived in Sydney today as well. Same deal, via DHL so probably won’t see them till sometime next week now lol.
    Doesn’t matter as they are going into the shelf for now.

    That is DHL e-commerce, what I use for most orders. DHL Express still run to the usual 4-7 days.

    They show up as DHL Express. Arrival into Sydney is fine. Mine shows as a Sydney Outlying area so is taken care of by Australia Post.
    It’s still quicker than EBay out of the USA. It has now been 2 weeks since the last update through them and looks like they are using USPS so I am not holding my breath for it to turn up soon. Plenty to do before I need the rear guard so it’s all good, for now

    I recently bought a couple of bearings from Florida, 2 weeks & I had 'em in my quarantine station ;)
    2 days later, the online tracking said they had arrived in Sydney, the weakest link regarding international shipping, is Aust Post
