    I would expect that too -> less valve clearance = less noise until catastrophe, but it's worth an ask. What about "No" clearance between the shims and cam lobes? I will be pulling the cylinder...

    Cheers, thought so, but itís always safer to ask first.

    Any chance an 1100 crank would fit in a 650 bottom end? (if not it would save me pulling it apart to check)

  13. Modern Exhaust Header on 80's Vintage GS

    For curiosity's sake, are there any "moderately" modern exhaust headers that port over to early 80's GS well?

    Cafe Seat - Hoop or Straight Bar?

    I bought this cafe seat, the fitment is good, but before I go off all sawzall-happy on the frame I'd like some advice:
