Hey there


Hey, My names rob im 21. Been riding for nearly 6 years now.
Just thought i would join the forum, had my GK76a for about 8 months now.

Currently on my 2nd engine as i blew my first one up after giving it an increase of 17.9% power. (my own fault for ragging the hell out of it after rebuild) got dyno vids and printouts.

Currently rebuilding my mates engine as he also dropped a valve. so no i currently have 4 top ends and 3 bottom ends in my garage (inc the 1 in bike) so feel like im really learning alot about this bike. (just past my level 1 motorcycle maintenance and repair)

Re: Hey there


Hi Rob and welcome to the forum.

Sounds like you are confident with the mechanical side of things. always a comfort to know for yourself what is going on inside your engine.
I'd recommend a read of the carb thread in the workshop section (that is, if you're not already aware of the o ring issues with which these bike suffer)

That piston looks ok to me - just needs a bit of a polish up surely? emoticon

Don't forget to keep us up to date with progress on the engine rebuilds.

Gary.

I do have a garage but no light so work in the flat lol. and that engine rebuild took me 5 hours to do including dinner break and bout 10 trips to the garage for stuff i forgot.

Well its not finished im just awaiting gasket material so i can put the side casings back on but thats a 2 min job.
