Wajulia, dang that is looking very nice. How far did you tear it down? did you remove the transmission?

Yes I took the transmission out, but I did not do anything but inspect it and use it to show my son how a transmission works. Then after I painted the block I put it back in. It looks crazy complicated, but comes out in two big chunks.

I took everything out of or off of the block with the exception of the shifter lever and the neutral switch. I just could not seem to get the neutral switch to come off, so instead of breaking stuff, I taped it all up and painted around it.

So I was on travel this weekend, thinking about what I will do next to the bike. I need to start getting the frame ready to accept my engine. So thinking about the frame.

The frame seems to be in good condition. It only has some surface rust around the center stand. Should I have it sandblasted and powder coated or just sand it and paint it myself? Opinions? I plan to ride the bike, it wont be a show bike.

Also, I noticed that some of the welds on the frame were horribly ugly. Any thoughts about dressing the factory welds??

Wajulia,I had corrosion on the bottom of my 1100 frame. I cleaned it up with a wire wheel on a drill and repainted with brushed on Rustolem oil based enamel primer and black top coat. It matched the factory paint perfectly. For $18 I had enough left over to do the frame on my CB450 K5. I had it sand blasted and sprayed that one. Give the frame a good wash down. Mine cleaned up nicely. The 450 only has 900 miles on it, but the Rustolem is holding up. It is equalvent to the factory paint.
On your teardown, did you take the oil level sight glass out? Mine is hard to see through.

Just wire brush it and paint it yourself. You won't see most of it anyway. Save some $$$ for electrical components.

No I didn't. Mine is perfectly clear and I saw no need to risk any collateral damage.

I know it sounds silly for a guy that has torn the engine down to the bearings, but I am trying to touch everything with an eye towards reducing what I call collateral damage -- breaking stuff that was perfectly fine before I screwed with it.

Finally got to spend some time on the bike. Nothing but, clean, paint, repair ... Repeat. I should get the clutch cover on tomorrow, then heads, then cam belt.

One of the parts I cleaned was the breather. Inside the breather is a screen cage with a foam like material in it. It crumbled when I took it out. Is there a replacement for the foam? It is on the left of this pic below.

Just a WAG, but would air filter foam work?

Clutch cover is back on.

The big flat rubber gasket that sits under the clutch cable cover broke. Anyone know where/if you can get one. I can piece it together. I think it is only an outside element gasket, not oil, so that should work.

Heads next.

I will start thinking about the frame soon.


Anybody have any insight to the foam in the breather?
