You are correct also... when you copy the BBcode it already carries the [IMG] codes on it.

The links the OP posted did not have the codes around them.

Pulled the top end out ready for my Hammer 1250 kit. Now I hope I remember how it goes back together

Well she went back together but not without a fight. Snapped one of the Rocker assembly bolts Lucky it was just above the head so i could grab it with pliers and screw it out.

When it snapped all sorts of bad things went trough my head and a whole lot of very colourful language was heard around the street lol

Alright so I crossed every finger and every toe and cranked her over. Thank god nothing came flying out. I ran through the break in cycles and all went well.

Then I took it for its first ride and it ran like crap, spluttering and surging. Couldn’t work it out for the life of me.

After many hours of checking for exhaust and intake leaks - none. Checked for loose Or broken wires - none.

Finally checked the injectors and I had the plugs crossed over front to rear. Swapped them over and took it for a run - seems better so we will see how it goes tomorrow
