    My Main idea: if you think it's a heat issue, would it not be possible to pack ice or a strong fan temporarily around the suspect component and see if it makes a difference.

    I just use the brake itself to pump the pistons out...perhaps you take reverse that and take the caliper off and push the pistons in with a wedge of wood or clamps ..or, hook another Master cylinder...

    I can't remember if I locked the tensioner in place. Could be a big help. Can't remember how i held the cams up while I fiddled but that'll be obvious anyways. Wooden sticks come to mind but there's...

    Not for me. And, they never lose their utility. A power-failure is just an inconvenience,when there's a woodstove and a stack of wood standing by. (and, if you're flush, you can buy a cord-it's...

    ...assuming your tensioner is similar to my 650, No. If you turn the Big Knurled Knob on the side of the tensioner it allows the tensioner blade's plunger-shaft to 'go back in" if it wants. However...

    The pictures are small but you seem to have it all apart so what "piston" are you looking for that you can't get out?

    I've put the switches from a Honda GL500 on a GS650G so I'd guess it'd be easily possible. and I do like the simpler control more than the 650's on my bikes that have it.

    I'll say. I've never been caught in one but just being near one, I'd say a hardened atheist "gets religion" pretty quick when These are coming near... I hope for the best for everyone there.

    ...and thereby reduced your "power". Better to rev high. Max power from the engine is somewhere around 7500 rpm . You can't get blood from a stone and it's not a Harley.
