  1. I know, but I do need to move on so I bought myself a cb600f. I wanted fuel injection and something a bit lighter and more modern. I'm not dissapointed, she is lighter and faster, but lacks the soul of the bandit. Left: before Right:After cleanup I used OPTIGLANZ to clean years of crap off the exhaust, it worked really well!
  2. Final pics... Time to let her go, she is up for sale now. I will miss her.

  5. Well I finally got the engine back in! Here is a quick video of first start up... I was relieved to say the least when she started right up. No taps or rattles or clunks.
  6. cant you tap them out. Then two bolts with copper washers Dont worry, I just managed to find some!
  7. Tanks mate! I must admit by the time i was finished getting the carbon out I thought I was nearly done, then came lappiing the valves. God it's boring. I just hope it all seals properly.
  8. Almost finished head Anyone know a where I could order replacement plugs for the bit I'm pointing at?
  9. Thanks guys, I will do. Just bought a replacement head off eBay, I'll start cleaning her up asap.
  10. This isn't the head I'm going to use but it was a good way to see how well cleaning goes. Before and after. Experimented with a bit of lapping... Thanks.
  11. Just another update for you. I had an annoying oil leak from one of the oil return pipes at the front of the engine. Decided to rip the engine out and get the head off to fix it. While I'm there I'm planning on doing some cleaning/painting and lapping the valves. Problem is one of the bearings for the exhaust cam is chewed up. I think I'll just buy a used head off eBay and make up 1 good one from all the bits.
  12. Got some heated grips for my birthday.... Used a piggyback fuse to the ignition circuit so I cant forget to switch them off.
  13. good mod that. I used a gsxr k8 one for my bandit made a brilliant difference. Really? I hope it does on mine, always felt soggy before. If I may... Did you have buy longer bolts for the suspension lever? The reason I ask is I had to use washers as 'shims' to move the dog bones around the new (wider) spring. Because of that the bolt that goes through and holds the dog bones in place is a little short now. I.E the bolt does not quite reach through the nut anymore. Does that make any sense to anyone?
  14. God that was fiddly horrible work, in the cold, and the wet. I'm never doing that again. Lots of paint to touch up and the whole bike needs a good clean. Rear hugger fitted. Fender extender fitted. Hoses changed front and rear. Hand guards on.
