      Good to see another smoker around, I'm currently rebuilding a KR1 which my neighbours hate.
      Before I pulled it apart I also used to treat my neighbors to the aural and nasal pleasure of two stroke. Should be more of it.

        While engine is out it is a good opportunity to de-grease the engine and frame. After uncovering 20 years of oil and grime it appears the lower shock mount is not cracked which is common for this model.
        De-greasing the engine prior to removing cylinders would have been a better idea. My solution was to hang the engine upside down to avoid getting any unwanted grime and degreaser in the crank case.
        Output shaft seems to be in fair condition also as its another common ailment for this model.

          Looks awesome mate! Inspiring me to look into getting something cheap to have a play with/learn from that won't matter if I butcher

            Have been cleaning the frame...... lots.
            Went through about 12 cans of degreaser on engine and frame. First pic of webbing inside frame was black prior to cleaning.
            I new that the choke guides were prone to breaking on these so in my bc engineering order was their billet choke guides. Sure enough on close inpection one was broken.
            Fairly easy to change, just unscrew from carb body remove plunger and thread off old plastic guide and place new one on.
            Small steps at the moment waiting on cylinders but I like doing these small detail jobs.

              BC are good guys. Next time I break one of those fucking choke things, I'll get a set from BC.

                As I intend to run 1.4mm base gaskets compared to the standard 0.5mm gaskets, a few things need to change and one of them is the deck height of the cylinder heads.

                The two options are to run the standard heads sans head gasket and have a groove machined to take an oring (tz).

                The other far more sexy option is to go aftermarket. The benefits aparantly are centering the plugs, better ports for cooling, replaceable inserts and no gaskets just orings, blah blah blah I like them cause they are shiny.
                The pics show the heads with standard inserts.
                Below these are custom inserts with neg deck height to hopefully maintain about 0.9 squish and 12.00cc volume.

                In the closeup of the inserts, you may be able to se the positive height / recess of the standard and the negative height /proud machining.

                VHM make blanks so you can order those yourself or just send your specs and they will cut the blanks for you.

                The standard cylinders on the right have had the uuheels treatment pre photos are further up they look better than new.

                    Definitely a travesty. Pipes look beautiful. Also had an RGV a couple of decades ago, lol. Was a 92 model N. Was pretty sweet. They're definitely a rare sight these days.

                      Can you take some pics of the heads without the inserts installed? I'm contemplating making a set of heads for my VJ23 motor to take VHM RM125 inserts...
