The carbs have come up rearly nicely.

What soap do you use in your ultrasonic cleaner ?

I notice you go in your garage for the day to fettle your bike, I only seem to manage around 2 hours at a time, I got to get a move on, I want to be riding the DR by the spring.

As ever, great work on your part !

Thinking I will renew my slide guides after reading this
https://advrider.com/f/threads/dr750-dr ... t-35568553

All of mine do not show those impressions so are worn and will wear the needle and emulsion. The ones on my 36's are goosed

Image
My 33's show similar wear too.

Anyone ever renew them and if so from where? All the usual beemer places I've tried (motoworks etc) don't list em.

Squeezed in a bit more rippage

The blowing exhaust left its mark.

Bits.
Delighted the rubber mud guard shield dealio came undone without any damage. Lot of the stuff I'm unbolting has never been off before.
If time allows I should have everything ready for the powder coater the weekend, assuming he's open. Want this back together fast as possible.

How's the Dr running Spen? You do any big miles on her or you use the tiger for that?

Happy New Year to you and all the gang Notags :tup:
Probably will re fit them but that's pending if I can satisfactorily reweld the rewelding that was done on them. My skills on this department are lacking but whoever had at them before is worse than me :lol:
You do know the Rd moto ones on ebay are OK and about a ton iirc? If I ain't happy with these that's where I'll go.

Trying to move this whole deal on as there's demands on my time on the horizon so after tea last night I went down the garage and said I wasn't coming out till she was bare assed.

Few hiccups along the way in the shape of a majorly seized in lower head bearing taper race. They were relatively recent as were greased and I could in fairness not fault them in riding it.

Image
Dragged the bike on the stand next to the bench and horses it up. Heavy bitch even like this. Surprisingly the bike will top forward in this orientation with the fork in.

Image
When I finally freed this it reminded me of this :lol:
Image

Image
A gift from Resi came in super handy! No screwdriver and hammer here, cheers Lars ;)

Image
Managed to remove this without damaging it and I'm happy about it as there was a bit of dribbling of hot coating on the blue Drs plate which I left on asked the coater to remove powder from before baking.
Even have the wee small rivets which I'll reuse and I'll epoxy them back in.

Image

Image
A great trick I learnt for you boys! No more wrestling the engine.

Image
Turned the frame over and dropped an appropriate sized washer down the headstock and boshed the top race out.
No such luck with the bottom one. Another feckin seized bearing part...

Image
Tiny lip you can get a drift on wasn't sufficient in this instance so necessity being the mother of all fook ups...

Image
Now I'd something to bash on and out she came:)

Image
Can you spot the mig wore from hamamatsu? Sloppy Jimmy San!

Image

Image
Ready to rock once I free both sub frames from their fairings, somehow manage to remove the rubber bushes from the foot pegs, re make and re weld the foot on the side stand and sort the engine bars.

Should be dropping them in the am and collecting next week. Seriously hope he masks all holes n threads as I can't be arsed chasing them out, takes ages. I
