Re: B25S and SS pistons

The difference between 10:1 and 9.5:1 is about 1.3 cc in compressed volume or a little under 0.5 mm in crown height, with my eyesight the crown heights would look the same as well! If you start with a high compression piston (assuming there is enough meat) you can measure your compression ratio and ...

Original ones were a rolled sheet (there is a topic on this somewhere). PES who make these from new use a solid bush, I think they will sell you the bush on its own (if they have one) but it will probably be unfinished so you may need to fettle it into the gear and then ream it to fit your mainshaft...

Re: Inlet Rocker woes

The ball ends are just pressed into the arms, you have to line the oil holes up and I have seen ones where the hole do not align, so either they turn or were assembled wrong. That aside there is a topic about the sockets in the pushrods being too deep and the edge of the cups hitting the rocker arm ...

Re: B44 - Vape Electronic Ignition

Got to chip in here: hhh is correct...ish. The output from the coil is dependant on the rate of change of the magnetic field, not the strength (in this case with a fixed magnet the field strength is constant), so the faster the magnets passes the coil the higher the output voltage. This is very much...

FGF, this is a "bump" for a question you asked in your Project Bikes topic , but without your own solution!

Re: gearbox diptick

All across the range, the absolute answer is here . IMHO, gearbox oil level is not critical, the tolerance is probably +0%/-30%. So unless you are racing or thrashing it, as long as there is something in there you will be OK until the next check and top-up. (The +0% is because if you overfill it, it...
