got carried away

Recommended Posts

well thought I would do a few little  jobs on the bike, polish exhaust back up,bit of paintwork, plugs ect, new seals in carbs, the bike has been using a bit more oil than I thought was right for the milage. so pulls off carbs looks into inlet port and the back of intake valves is covered in baked on oil which is a sure sign of valve seal leakage well they probably the origonals so are 22 years old so gonna be a bit crispy now.
you can do them with the engine in but its pretty awkward so seing as I already had the rad and exhaust off I thought I might as well just drop the motor out.
so while I'm on I think I will pull the head off to do job properly and also give it a mild porting job too.
should get seals and gaskets next week, will keep me occupied for a while.

unfortunately I can't proceed with mine at the moment cos I'm getting fecked about by the company I ordered a porting kit off 2 weeks ago tried ringing, emailing and contacting him thru his website and paypal, totally ignored all them" t**t."
now I have to wait another 10 days for him to respond to paypal before I can get my money or the product turns up. feckin hate getting pissed about by arseholes.
I would buy another kit elsewhere if I knew what the fook this guy intends.
the company is called Headportingsupplies.co.uk I would not use them if I was you .

The company is marked down as "Proposal to Strike Off" as well.

First Notification Of Strike-off Action In London Gazette (section 652)

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/08742698

By the looks of things, this would be the third time his setup as a LTD company for something and got out of it fast. Not doing bad for a 31 year old Mr Szymanski!

Nice house as well.. Wonder how he managed it Clicky

cheers m8, it never crossed my mind to check out the company, first time I have had any bother buying off the net. at least I paid by paypal so should have a chance of them taking my money back of him. suppose I could always pop round and put his windows out.

well got the bike back together a couple of weeks ago and been playing about with the fueling again trying to get it spot on bike is booked into advanced exhausts beginning of may to get a reworked and better flowing link pipe made but my little bit of porting and fueling adjustments seems to have made a bit of difference to acceleration, hits a bit harder now and tries to slide you of the back of the bike so I'm a happy bunny. just need some more new tyres Sad  and some warm weather.
