Ah rocket ... If these bikes were anywhere as finely engineered as whatever you have owned before, they would be double the price.

Speaking of piston clips, I wrote up a quick abs dirty howto somewhere on here.

Don't ask me for help. I can't be trusted.

What tools do I need to measure all these things I need to measure. I have vernier calipers but no feeler gauges. I'm guessing I need feeler gauges at the very least.


Thanks for the help so far.

Try and get some good feeler gauges. Wherever trade people get their tools from. Repco ones are ordinary, SCA and the like are rubbish. If you look after them and don't use them to clean your fork seals they should last a lifetime. Don't forget to borrow a torque wrench (optional but recommended) from a mate and get them to show you how it works. So you don't break it....

I like to measure the bore using a Bore gauge, its a dial indicater on a stick. Might be a bit hard to come accross one unless you know a mate in the fitting trade. Inside micrometers will suffice and outside micrometers are are the go too for checking piston size.

Sorry for being a bit random with my questions but I'm just putting them up as they occur to me.

With the gaskets do you just put them on dry or do you need some sort of gasket goo.

the gaskets are put on dry , but it pays to put a small amount of three bond over the area where the cases join. ;)
