i still have some engine noise. Is this normal???
Yes. These engines are by no means quiet when running. You have
straight cut gears, power valve actuator and a big ole' clutch basket
whirring around half in and half out of an oil bath - there's all kinds
of noise. It will diminish a little as the engine breaks in, but it will
always be there.

Hi D

When I took it out for a ride the first and second time it took it kinda slow. Low revs with cool down periods in between. One concern though.... It still throws out coolant at the overflow pipe. After about an hours ride on the dune i have to let it cool down and then i refill the radiator. It takes about 50ml of coolant everytime. There's no coolant leakage into the gearbox or through the inspection hole. Only out of the overflow. I have replaced my radiator cap already. The coolant that we buy here is a 30/70 mix. Could that make a difference.I have bought a 50/50 now. haven't tried it yet. We are planning to go out this weekend again, but I am still unsure if i can take longer trips with the coolant issue. I am very careful with the bike so it doesn't overheat. I made sure to check it every pit stop.

What's you r expert thoughts on this?

G

You don't need any antifreeze in your coolant. Antifreeze will cut
down on the effectiveness of your cooling system. Run distiiled
water mixed with a surfactant like Water Wetter for best results.
Another option is Engine Ice.

You can also try a higher pressure radiator cap. CV4 markets them.

Keep us posted.

Brilliant..... I did a bit of reading on Redline Water Wetter. Breaks down the surface tension of the water..... Absolutely brilliant. I've never heard of it but as I can see from the forums it does work. I have already replaced my radiator cap with a new highpressure one.

Cool man. Going to Saluki Motorsport tomorrow to buy some water wetter.

Thanks for the advise D.

Cheers mate.

Bringning back an old thread but it's revelant...

I'm putting back the engine together and whenI use the puller to pull the left case over the crank that is set in the right case, it binds up ans the crank won't spin. Anyone has ever had that issue?

Thanks!!

You'll need to make sure the bearings are fully seated for starters. Was your crankshaft rebuilt? If so they may not have gotten pressed back together correctly.
