    Question Doing Mods...

    Hey..

    Some Questions..??

    For the chaps that have been down this road...

    I'm about to start the Mods on my 05 GP1300R..

    What i have lined up is:... stock head skimmed for 150psi,. Fit my VF3 reeds,.
    Install my 3degree timing key from fercho,.
    Maybe do oil block-off while I'm in there..?? (gotta say its a pain in the arse premixing)
    Dplate and jetworks mod,.

    Now what i'm wondering is..??
    Will i actually be faster just yanking the motor out doing the mods then putting it back in..??

    My recent memories of re-jetting the carbs (Grrrr ) Over and over and over..
    Plus working in the space available.. not my idea of a picnic AT ALL..!!!

    Whats the recommendations Guys..??

    That Piece of Cak Has long since been changed..!!!!

    I'm just wondering about doing the reeds and keyway more than anything..!!

    My memories of skint knuckles and multiple lacerations from poorly cut tie-wraps..
    Are very vivid... Grrrr.. I'm surprised i never smashed my ski into a million bits with a hammer...!!!!
    After every freeking cut them damn carbs gave me..!!!!(thats the ONLY reason i went EFi..!!)

    gerry

    pull the engine..
    reasons..

    1. its dark 20 hours a day where you live so you cant ride

    2. your scottish and your temper wont allow you to take your time

    3. once again your scottish you have a short fuse you will put hammer through ski

    seriously its only another two hours max once you got it to the reeds stage so i would take time and save the hands and pulling your hair out holding the mirror to see the cover bolts

    Yea man... Yank that sob out! Im in the process of doing the exact same mods... And I also did the block off while I was in there... The first thing I said to myself after installing the Vf3's was... "Self, Im glad you pulled this motor out to do this work." When you do pull the engine out pay attention to what shims come out of where... Wish someone told me that ahead of time... Do the Fercho Jet works mod! It got me much better results than the actual Jetworks mod.. The other cool thing about pulling your engine is you find all the other tools you lost 4 months ago...

    Smile Hmmmm

    Well Paul...

    I'm thinking of pulling the engine for most of your reasons...

    There's more than a slight chance.. i WILL go on a kill crazy hammer rampage..!!
    If i slash my arms one time fishing around in the hull...!!!

    The other reason that crossed my mind was that i'd be able to pressure test it better/easier on the bench..??
    That and pissing around trying to get the damn flywheel off..

    quadzilla, a few cuts and wounds that bleed are good for the soul. It is time to become one with your 05. Until you have dripped blood on the inside of the hull somewhere, you have not yet bonded with your ski.

    Please go premix!!!

    Pull the motor Gerry! It only takes about 15 min with a chain hoist.

    You will be able to sit at the bench and take your time with no back pain.
