Hmmm, simple. I can make it, need to make a M12 thread (edited, not M12 but 12x1.25!!), no useless spark plug around I dont need to drain engine oil to remove right side crank cover right?
I have ordered a simple compression gauge from China, one month to get it. Cant wait to continue :/
The carb to engine rubbers arrived today, they are fantastic, super fit on the carbs (bike is not here), has a small angle, the dimensions just like i measured.

Remember? I had cranking problems first, which i thought is the broken kickstand switch. Dismounted this and connected the wires. Later i found the neutral switch cable was torn and simply interwound inside the cover. So the kickstand switch was covered with silicon at the bottom which i thought is the result of tinkering. Now i found pictures showing that this is originally like that. Now i have to solder new wires on the switch. :/

One more thing. I made two heat up then let it cool cycles to make sure the fan (original switch working) and cooling system working. Topped up coolant after the cycles. First it had smoky exhaust but this is because of the remaining oil from tank (rust removal, drying, left covered inside with oil), but after a while there was no smoke at all. I think this as a good sign that the head gasket change worked

This grease pint was almost empty. The others needed less grease to fill.

Hmmm, something is missing. Is it possible to get a new one somewhere?
How is it called in english so i can search for it?
The engine and frame numbers should match right? But not on my bike. I know it had a crash, so the frame was replaced.

Nope, nothing missing. I think all the frames have this two rivets. Mine has them and I had the bike since new. I was actually looking at them yesterday wondering if they were mounting points used on another model that used the same frame and those are just blanking plugs.

As long as it has more than one wheel, I'm game.

Bowl gaskets arrived. Bought for Kawasaki (ZX600A 85-87 ZR750 ZX750 ZL900 ) for six quid, pack of four. Perfect fit for the CVK36.

No info of the taillight and indicators yet

Is this baffle the same as on my Legend? Already made six 12mm holes in the outer layer. It says there are still two more walls to drill and get that bass.

The idea is to restrict air flow, since pods letting to much air in.
Still need to figure out how many holes to cut in the plate.

I still don't get it. The engine needs air to make power. Why would you want to install pods, then restrict the air flow? Heck, just put a stop on the throttle at half way open...
