Where does the swarfe go then?
If youre putting a bigger insert in then you need to open out the hole by at least a couple of mm, on a 15mm long plug thread thats alot of swarfe to get rid of.

That said Ive never used timeserts before

edit: Ive got a spare 750 gixxer head complete that will go straight on, just needs cleaning up and putting back together, you can have it for not alot

Except when sounding like a, or upside-down.



Sump plugs being the usual one that catches loads of people out.

Use a ratchet on em and its simpler to do right.

far to technicle for me images.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://www.timesert.com/images/sparkplug/PlugMeasurement.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.timesert.com/html/sparkplug.html&h=617&w=674&sz=81&hl=en&start=3&tbnid=gob8q2gQUvVFyM:&tbnh=126&tbnw=138&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dtimesert%26gbv%3D2%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DG i is fik innit.

as i said, i will ask if they will (can) do it.

forteh... i did find a really nice head on ebay (£100) i was going to buy it, but i asked the garage for advice .

they said i'd be better of spending a couple of hundred pounds more, as the bike is nearly on a hundred thousand miles and something to do with gaskets might not line up against a head thats done 321 miles compared to a hundred thousander

it sounded good when he explained it


thanks for the advice guys

*edit*

actually, i think he said the bolts might not line up

Well if your engine has done that mileage I would probably agree with them

Go and register on www.oldskoolsuzuki.info and ask around for a 600 ot 750 engine, someone will have one sitting there doing fuck all, if you ask nicely you might even get someone to help you fit it aswell.

I don't go around praising up my bike or other so-called classics, but there really is something to be said for a cast iron cylinder head.


Starting problems ? Just looking at your sig pic ...

Oh and you could have had my head for 30 quid
Got a brand new base and head gasket aswell but theyre for the 750 lump not the 600

If he doesn't want it, I will

I still don't know if the cams will be the best for my idea but at that price I am willing to give risk the potential loss.

I ought to mention that Ive not seen this head running but it all looks to be complete and ok. Does need a good clean and theres some fin damage to one corner though.

Postage will be silly though unless youre passing this direction

oh well another helicoil coming up


please remember....righty tighty, lefty loosey.


Nightmare when that happens.

I went to drop the oil last week and found the sump plug stripped. Managed to get another sump on ebay for a tenner. Had the same problem on a KTM LC4 once, but the sump was part of the engine casing that cost a bit more than a tenner.

Just supposing that Popadop isn't wanting it, I am only bothered about the cams anyway so postage won't be too bad

the bandit is dead.

it can be brought back to life, but with a second hand engine. i am looking for bike breakers & have contacted two.

engines are ranging between £275 & £350ish

i can get a new bike (on 0% finance)...but i am in two minds.

shall i spend £500ish on fixing a bike probably worth £600 & let it last me a few more years till i can afford a proper big bike ....or break the bitch up & sell bits on ebay & buy another £4000ish new bike<-----0n finance @ 0%.

decisions decisions

ps deej77

i will engire if it can be time sert(ed)....i don't think it can though.

i know that it can't be helicoiled twice.


That's a bummer, give me a shout if you need a hand. I'm not claiming any expertise but can lend tools, help lift heavy things, whack skillfully with large hammer if required

Is the bike in good order otherwise.... discs, exhaust etc?

timesert are better than helicoils for spark plugs.
