    Bar Wires

    Hey Stew,

    I took a peek under my bar switches as a follow up to your comments. Yamaha was on top of it.
    There is a tab on the switch body that engages the clutch perch. You can see it just to the right of the 2 nuts.

    That'll stop the little bugger from spinning.

    520 Rear Sprocket

    Hey Folks,

    I'm looking for a 520 rear sprocket with 44 teeth. I'd like to get one in black. Anyone have any recommendations
    & where to purchase.

    That's right, I'd forgotten about that...

    Kickstand bumper & more

    I finally got around to sorting out my kickstand. I needed to come up with a solution for my bent bracket. I started out with a chunk of 1" tube steel & fashioned up
    a mount for the rubber bumper.

    I'd get it welded to the kickstand so that it would contact the bottom of the frame when in the up position.
    I think I waited 2 months for my neighbour to get around to it. These things tend to slow down my build.

    A bit of paint & she's good to go.

    I finally found a 44 tooth black 520 sprocket. Ito helped me out with this. It should be here soon.

    Maybe I'm dorking out on this but I ordered up a Check Brake Lining sticker for the back wheel.

    Time to rebuild a motor

    It's time to tackle the last & no doubt the most complex part of my build. My engine. She's been sitting untouched in my storage area for 4 years.
    I brought her inside to a more comfy environment.

    First thing was to drain the oil.

    Of course my catch can was too small & the first squirt of oil went all over the floor.

    I'll have to deal with the busted plug in the head.

    I was giving her a bit of a wipe down before delivering to me engine guy when I noticed this.

    I'm sure all you folks that have been inside will have a good idea what's going on. I'll find out soon.
    Feel free to chime in with some go fast suggestions.

    Oh dear, looks like the kickstart stopper and guide have let go https://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-sr500-1...4.html#results

    Updated parts are available from Yamaha to prevent it happening again, in the meantime, almost everyone who has experienced this (and there's been a few) have had good results repairing the crankcase damage with JB Weld, the area will need to be chemically clean so perhaps a full engine strip?

    That bash concavity within will make a nice spot for a gob of JB, or such. Unless, of course, you cant stand the look of it without and get it welded.

    I figured it was kick starter related. I'll most likely be taking the entire engine apart so welding will be the answer. My engine guy is also a fabricator so he
    has welding gear in his arsenal. The cases will be painted black so any fix ups will disapear.

    I'm sure while I'm making things look pretty I won't be able to resist smoothing out some of the casting marks as well.

    There will be those days when I have nothing in particular to do & I just can't help myself.

    Yes welding is the best way...I found that if you have the cases hydra blasted it gives a great even finish for either leaving as-is or as a nice base to start from for painting.
