I'll get moving on this lol. They will be words of joy to Jason's ears, but the truth is we are close to engine assembly. I'm still working on the rods, but not far away. Once that job is done, it is just assembly.

The delimer regarding the oil pump-alternator drive could not be resolved without the proper works kit. So I have turned the alternator drive into what is essentially now an idler gear, and we will actually end up with better oil pump flow, and I think less drivetrain friction loss due to less acute chain angles.

I'll sort out the lost photo's and we will get moving on this! Cheers.

Con-rods have been resized, each available bearing size was purchased and plasti-gauged. We have settled on a size, and ordered bearings for the remaining 3 rods. Unfortunately they don't have stock locally, so they are on their way from Japan.

I've updated the photo's FB deleted, and will have some updates on this build in the next few days. Cheers.

If Aussie is anything like here they will arrive faster and cost less than if you bought local :lolno:

Jason is getting them through the dealer, so there will no difference in price.

The Kwaka parts on the other hand are about 1/2 the price of Yamaha, for the same sort of item... go figure?
