No she's a red-head:)

But seriuosly there isn't much instructions. It just basically says to line up the gasked with the cylinder head(?)....or maybe I though I knew Japanese a little better;)

gaskets

I read some other posts last night and similarly to this, were some members drunk last night? Plenty of talk of members batting for the other side (1 in 10 don't forget).
Anyway instructions are for metal race gaskets (my inlet gaskets were leaking causing overfuelling). Surely mechanics (race) know to mate the gaskets up! I wondered what the warning was before we stick them on.

Over-fuelling

Dave,

How did your over-fuelling problem manifest itself? Exhaust smoke, hesitation, poor idle?

Air Cooled

Phil

Air cooled RD400. Now their was a tame beast to ride.

Whilst on the stroker theme not as easy to live with as the old 'Green Meanie' KH750 :eek: .

Sod being a GP rider in them days.

Glen,

KH750 - was that known as the"kettle" - 2 stroke triple?
Mate used to have a tuned one - bonkers fast - sounded
amazing!
Takes me back 17yrs - not going to school - filing another
half mil off the top of my X-1 50cc exhaust port!!!

Wow never knew we had so many bike enthusiasts amoung us!!
I have been invited to attend the Moto GP practice in Motegi tomorrow(friday)
I have never actually seen the 500cc 2 strokers in action...can't wait!!
Did they really make a 750 2-stroke??

Alan...will do and I will take as many pictures as my memory sticks will take:)
Should get them up on my site by Monday sometime so click on my GTR Nismo logo on monday;)

I have a paddock pass and the person who invited me, the official Regina chain supplier, has told me he will introduce most of the Italian drivers to me...I hope so!! Just have to let Valentino know what an absolute monster driver he is...or actually he probably already knows...cocky bugger!:)

I've driven around Motegi a few times now...it's only about 30min drive from my house(...its my local:D). I managed to spin the GTR at 120kmh around the corner which leads into the first tunnel. Came very close to the barrier but...pretty scary!! It's a hell of a circuit though....so much variation, opposite cambers, up-hills, down-hills, slow hairpins and fast sweepers.

Overfuelling

Pete H......
Car starts very rich and is a bit 'wooly' and I don't mean in the sheep sense. Also uses loads of petrol (worse than usual) which is bad. Advised on this by Mark from Abbey, so I am not argueing.
