VX Project Bikes / vx800 big bore restoration...
« Last post by superturbocompound on January 03, 2020, 02:51:08 AM »
hi all, early part of my vx800 (vx950) restoration, some lousy engineering done by the local machine shop, need to do it again, and order a set of bearings for the crank.

Opps , some contact between the valve and piston, hope i didn't bend the valves.didn't run the engine long though , just a few minutes. i did change the gasket to a 1mm from the 2mm...so my fault for not checking the piston to valve clearence

just checking the contact surface of the rings and the piston ring land, upper rings are good but the lower compresson rings  not 100%...

"Sunny Summer For All of YOU!"

I hope you are all fine and you can ride like a wind again.

i can send you some photos, if posting is not an option.  if you wish.you want to stop by and pick out one?  i am talking with a guy in upper NY, a guy in AZ, and a guy in NorCal who will hopefully clean out all the bikes and parts i've accumulated, but nothing is definite.  some of the parts i have were traded for with sir brian ;-)

ps  maybe you should take my maroon bike and use yours for spare parts?

I am pretty sure I have some and can take a look by this weekend (we got a mini-heatwave): color preference? + you need it in sc?

The paint on the bike is pretty wrecked but its a 1990 dark blue.  Its super rusty then someone put a liner over the rust. Its been such a hassle trying to get all the rust and all the liner out of it. The tank is full of drywall screws and acetone and I shake it till Im dizzy every other day. It still looks nasty in there.
