    Personally, if i'm choosing between used pins, they get measured - carefully.
    3 places - the two ends which run in the pistons - and the center.

    i don't think you can point the finger at any one market over the others. I've seen TCI ignition miscalled CDI in US magazines - and Haynes manuals (British)

    CDI was new, hot and cool - at the...

    1/ No
    2/ Yes

    Yeah, cover has to come off to remove those screws. No problems removing the cover with them on.

    I have done several of the 16V heads. GSX and GSXR. Helicoils on the lot and never a problem. Once lockdown is over i can walk into at least three places in ChCh and buy the correct helicoils - I'm...

    This is the generation who've grown up with on-board technology. i doubt many would know how to ride a 500 2 stroke which had a savage edge to the power band.

    Couple of points. I'd use a helicoil rather than a timesert. There isn't much room between the plug hole and the seat inserts so the thinnest insert is the safest one to use. Closer to the seats you...

    Well, seeing as no-one's answered, I'll admit to having used 6mm socket head capscrews as replacements. OE is hard to find at this end of the world.

    Just drilled the socket head and looped around a leg of the u-joint from memory.
    Loctited - and done up with a long tube over the allen key. I'd probably use the rattle gun now.

    Very strong. I could get one readily where a 14mm hex head high tensile screw was harder to get. Memory says the shank size was an accurate 14mm too which is required. Don't think the hex head screws...

    The shaft has to come out to go in a lathe. With the nut broken off the end it all just slides apart. So watch you don't drop parts or lose the sequence of shims etc.
