Hi again.


The red RS was nice, but it was stolen and left on the side. All of the plastic was damaged, and the motor had a crack under the timing cover. It had run 178.000km and the main seal was leaking and the clutch was bad.


I got my hand on another motor and started with this. Changed all seals, gasgets and o-rings on the motor. The seal on the gearbox was fine.


I hope i get the picures out in the right order, it has been a while since all of this :)

Changing simmering and clutch. Got a centering tool from motorworks. Bought a refurbished water/oil pump also from motorworks, mounted with liquid seal and new bolts.

Mounted starter and alternator with new rubber and new regulator.

Motor and gear back together with starter and alternator. Used 4 m6 studs to guide the gearboks back on the motor. Everything is mounted with torque specs from the manual.

Handlebar from lokal partsdealer. Wanted a handlebar and not strap-ons because of comfort. New rubber mountings.


Everything on the handlebar is brand new. From rubbergrips to switches.


New exhaust coppergaskets.


Mounted headlight, blinkers and horns low/high frequenze.


Rims came back from powdercoating.
