I decided to put in a 1200 spring chain tensioner. Ordered one from eBay. So now I am waiting for the oil pump studs and the spring chain tensioner. I know that I need to modify the chain shroud, any suggestions would be great


While I am waiting for the parts, I decided to clean and paint something else. I picked the front cover, oil filter and water pump. Inspecting the water pump, I realize that it takes two hands to turn the pump. Wow. So earlier I discussed that I thought the bike had cooling issues. One head gasket had been replaced, there was no thermostat, it really seems that the PO was struggling with overheating issues. I find a serious issue in the water pump. Try to free up the water pump, the vanes crumble, No problem, I will buy another. WOW those are a little pricey! But the water pump is a pretty important part. If I get the cooling under control it will be worthwhile.

Yes. I heard it. As it is said, education is expensive! I really appreciate that you guys keep the cost to a minimum.



Won't do that again, but YES on the moly for the head bolts?

Tried it on the pump again and it felt MUCH better.
Most manufacturers recommend checking the calibration of their click type torque wrenches yearly.

For home mechanics (Shade Tree) I would recommend a beam type torque wrench.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

I needed a success, and I saw the timing hole cover and said, "I can polish that ". Well that felt good, instant gratification polishing aluminum!

Waiting for parts so I took some time to. --- clean , paint, assemble!

Finished the front cover. Quite a PIA. Lots of nooks and crannies. As i was cleaning it I realized that the existing paint was flaking off. I had to take all the paint off from all those nooks and crannies But it is done, waiting for the new water pump

Wajulia, nice work. I will be going down the same path with my 1100. One thing I have learned, you cannot just pretty up a few parts. Once you start you have to do them all.
Do you have any comments on splitting the case halfs? How did you break the seal? Did you remove the alternator rotor and clutch? THX- JimP

You have or will need to clean each of those bolt holes so the moly is out.

Right!



In the beginning I would have said soak the cylinders.........

What you are doing is better you needed new rings.

Them water pumps only last 60,000 miles. So replace the pump anytime your unsure.

The LORD is my light and my salvation--so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?
