That just means it's time to shave your legs and polish them up...

Starting to roll on this project again.

Rocker covers were the plain aluminum that easily stains. Black now.

This is high heat primer and then high heat paint (Dupli-Color low gloss black)




Picked up the wheels, brake lever and rear pulley from powdercoat.




Forgot to get this powdered, taking it by there tomorrow.

I'm really happy with how it turned out. Time Warp did a great job.

Almost finished with the NRHS 1250 conversion.

Front cyl on-




Ever wonder why each bike performs a bit differently?

This is a pic of the intake on one of my factory heads. That is a pretty significant casting anomaly.




A little dremel work got rid of it.




This is the stock head, however, I disassembled them and had them powdered, and then I polished the fins to match the cylinder.

I really like that look, but will probably never do it again. lol

Also, if you ever get you heads powdered, remember to clean out the threads and all the oil passages of any debris that may be in there from the powder prep work.

Reused the valves, springs, and keepers. The valves and valve seats were in good condition, but I lapped them anyway.



Ready to install wrist pin in rear cylinder.




This is where I stopped. Will finish up tomorrow.



My umbrella valves were working fine, however, since I am in here anyway I ordered front and rear umbrella valves.

I made a rookie mistake...I trusted the dealer, and did not notice until just now that they gave me two FRONT umbrella valves.

They do not have any in stock. Will check with another dealer and see if they have them. If not, I will swap the filter from the new one and reinstall the original rear one.
