Had a go at doing the main bearing shell clearances today, used the old shells that came out when i stripped the motor,

had to start with known crank case halves and shells, but the crank has had the journal sizes machined off when it was lightened.

after doing the plastiguage thing, it would appear that they are all over size so not too much of a problem as four of them are Brown shells so
I have ordered 4 Yellow shells to replace them, but two sets of shells have no colour marking! I will change them with two of the Brown ones i am removing

and do another check to give me a datum.

as i didnt have any plastigauge left to do the crank oil clearance checks, i dug the Yoshi valve spring kit out and set about fitting it.

well it turned into a rather different to the usual job, first off i had to get google translate on the job, as with all Yoshi bits the fitting instructions were in Japanese FFS.

even with translation it wasnt easy to understand, but i stumbled on and sort of found my way as i went.

seems that you have to A) measure the valve stem protrusion from the head, B) measure the spring seat thickness C) measure the spring retainer lip thickness,* D)then assemble the valve into the head and measure the amount of valve stem protruding above/below the spring retainer.

carry out the following equation X = A-B-C-D* (X is the spring compressed length measurement = 31.8mm +/_* 0.2mm)

if X isnt within tolerance, then there is a bag full of 0.5 and 0.8 shims that will need fitting!

As it is The guy that did my valve job did a fucking brilliant job of cutting the valves in, they were almost the same depth across the whole head, so all the valves have gone in and do not require any shims as they are all within Factory spec, *

Result, well almost, as i was expecting to have to remove the valves after the measuring to fit shims, i haven't fitted any valve stem oil seals. so tomorrows job it to remove them all and fit some oil seals, before re fitting all the valve springs again*

today was a good day working on the head, removed all the valve springs and added the valve stem oil seals, then re fitted them,

but before going to far into it, I fitted a set of valves with stem seals and spring seats, then checked that the top spring seat had lots of clearance to the stem seal at full lift.

ended up with around 3mm of clearance, jobs a good un.



re assembled all the other bits like rockers and adjusters.

popped down to SNT to drop off the plates and collect my forks, great job on the calliper seats, removed 5mm from the calliper seating face, now the pads sit well below the outside edge of the disc and give me a small amount of adjust-ability for pad manufacturer differences.




i will now get some 2mm spacers sorted to finish off with the pads around 1mm from the disc edge where i want them.
