I’m taking off the right crankcase cover. I was able to disconnect one of the stator plugs. I can see the other plug. The motor, motor mount, frame and tool box are all in the way. How can I unplug it? It has to have the catch depressed and separated. I can’t get tools on it.

What size is the nut on the drive (front) sprocket?
Cheers,
Bill

I measured. Looks like a 46mm.

I wish I could remember. I've done it, but didn't pay any attention.  Maybe you have to take out the engine mount? Good luck.

Gizzo - Not what I wanted to hear, but, that might be “it”.
  The hardware on the motor mount is accessible. I could off it and torque wrench it back on without the drama I’m looking at now!

BTW - The Fireball head is getting a finishing touch on the oil plugs under the oil squirting Holly jets. They’re located near the springs.

The little two way connector (for the crank position sensor) under the engine plates are always a little tricky to access, you can get to them without removing the plate and just use a small flat blade screw driver to press the release in on the plug. If its a bike that is going to have this disconnected on a regular basis, just reroute the cable to run above the plate so its easier for next time.

I received a 46mm socket. It's a honker!

This shifter pawl came out when I opened the right case cover. I can't get them rod back in the forked gear shift lever. Any suggestions?

If you remove the shifter on the other side of the engine than the shift rod will be free to move as much as necessary to be put back in the fork.

Thanks, OK! I needed that. BTW, the billet head is looking great. Cams too.

Glad you like it!
  I got the shifter off and it moves easily. I have the engine in 5th gear, to bump the piston to TDC and install our ‘new and improved’ performance cams. Then pushrods. Then the head.
  Our guys will do a cc volume check on the compression chamber AND the piston below the barrel deck. That will define any barrel skimming precisely.
Gradually, we’re coming together!

I will have to review mine, maybe the big end bearing finally gave up after about 10k miles hard riding, compression was 210psi, no pinging or any other issues. That was with 98 oct. fuel (EU) which translate to 93 oct. in the US i believe.

Something to do.

regards
OK

210 is a lot of compression.

I don't remember reading about your bike breaking. What happened?

I don't know yet, last time when I rode it, it started knocking and loosing power so I stoped. Have to open it and see.

Maybe the bike just doesn't like the somewhat cold climate over here.
