yeah got em fitted okay mick.... engines built up.... no smokin anymore, so thats that problem sorted. just 1 and 2 not firing now, which is strange seeing as thats 1 plug on each coil not firing.... i could understand 1 and 4 or 2 and 3. but still.... the joys of building bikes back up. carbs need balancing which dunt help. i better check timing again. al get theer.... not to worried yet still got chop to ride

reet...... timings spot on.... it fires on all plugs. HT leads definately on the right way round.... on tick over 1 and 2 downpipes are cold, where as 3 and 4singe my skin when i touch the bastards!!! arrrgh lol
took it out... certainly runnin on all four then... i reckon tickover or slow runnin jets are clogged up on 1 and 2 which means on first start up the pipes dont warm up. bike has bin stood a while so petrol cud'v jellified. al strip carbs tomoro... am gerrin theer

I know that feeling, been waiting ten days for a head and base gasket for mine too (not from Upperton's, I must add).

i got my new gaskets when getting the bore job done. the wiseco head gasket is one of those steel multi-layered jobbies and im fucked if i can get an oil tight seal on it, checked head at work last night and its straight so that aint the prob. think i will go for a composite one.

cometics are the way to go. i always used them on my 1170 gsx motors. not cheap, but they do the job and are never any hassle.

aye cometic will probably be the way i go john, im getting fed up building this up, ripping it doon etc etc etc.
i must also mention that none of this is roger upperton's fault incase anyone thought that, i am merely getting advice from him as he is renowned for his work on these heads.
i personally think its a race related incident in my garage.
when i work/use the bonnie the suzuki throws a fit, and vice versa.
i am sure i caught the bonnie asking the gsx "who won the fuckin war?"
