    Zen

    Emphasizes rigorous self-restraint, meditation-practice, insight into the nature of mind and nature of things, and the personal expression of this insight in daily life, especially for the benefit of others.

    As such, it de-emphasizes mere knowledge of sutras and doctrine and favors direct understanding through spiritual practice and interaction with an accomplished teacher or Master.

    bah! sorry to see this is still unsolved. I suppose the one good thing about lockdown is that none of us can really ride anyway so not like you are missing out on much at the moment! Toshi will have her running in no time

    Bike has been fixed!

    It was an intake leak, on the front head. I wasn't torquing the nuts enough, replaced a gasket, loosened and torqued everything and she's good to go! Carb needs a bit of a fine tune but that's it!

    I've got a vid, but can't format it!

    Yeah fingers crossed dude, I need to do some run in miles, check valves etc, and then dial the carb in. Runs strong though Toshi made light work of it.

    Also makes me feel better knowing I was right with what the issue was!

    When you start to doubt yourself.

    Didn't realise how much you need to tighten the nuts..

    Done it myself 12 years ago. All I had for storage was a dusty industrial greenhouse- no place to strip mechanical parts, and a shovel needing engine work. Toshi sorted that motor good, 12 years on it still hauls ass. Thankfully, i've had a decent workshop for the last 10 years..

    None of us are born experts. Learning as we go is all part of the fun of old machines! To be fair my problem is always over torquing till the bolt snaps ha! Be good to see it out on the roads

    Excellent news!
    Did you ship it back and forth to London or Toshi came to your place to fix it?

    Glad to hear ya got it running good. Curious as to why the PEEK seals weren't sealing properly...from my experiences I use about 1/2 the torque the brass ones require to seal. Strange.

    Ele,

    It's in London, I'm going to collect Thursday, Moving house so need a van for transporting furniture. Two birds one stone!!

    Montucky, no idea. He told me he much prefers the OEM style seals. Said he has more confidence in them. Personal preference of course, but he swapped them in and they sealed it right up.

    He's far more experienced than myself, so glad he's gotten it running. He made sure to tell me it's going to need miles and then the carbs going to need a good tune, it's not dialled anywhere near as good as it needs but he's got it running and riding.

    Curious as to what you had the head torqued at and what it needed to be at.

    Not the head sir, the manifold nuts. I snugged them down very very tight, wasn't enough though clearly!
