Easily done though only necessary(badly flogged).
Of course the setup for machining needs to be on the correct intended center(which can easily be established).

The thing is a lot modern engines seem to be using loctite on their bearings ANYHOW now.
So if they are only just starting to move and in actual case the journals are not REALLY sloppy?
Just use loctite. 601  ,,,, or 609...
Make sure you clean the surfaces well with acetone if you don't have the loctite brand surface primer.

good luck with your build  :)

Great LOOP. Thanks to the people who made it and this event happen.  Took my mind back to a simpler time on the old Ts/Er185. Lots of great thoughts and dreams of upgrades ;D

Lots of great help and some great people on here too,,
Seems like some of the good contributors from the past are sadly gone, though one upside is
so have some of the dickheads ;D

Its amazing how many times I google a bike question and in results it shows debates, discussion and answers of this forum.
Thanks for keeping it alive Kenneth,,

Gooday all,

Has anyone ever noticed which replacement brands are hardest or longer wearing?
Or which brands are junk and wear quickly,,, = metal quality?

I am repairing building some XR600 engine projects for myself.

The counter shafts have flogged out on the spline where the sprocket mounts on.

I am thinking cheap quality sprockets maybe wear quickly, then in turn ruin the shaft as they flog
 back and forth? ?

Wow, that's like pretty serious,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Well done Toby Price  8)

Ok Dave, a weak spark will certainly make for difficult starting and poor running.  Shows up when opening the throttle, especially under load.

You have swapped out a lot, except for magnetic rotor?

These days I test the magnetism of every rotor that pass through my hands.
I have a jar of m6 nuts.
I lightly hand engrave the result of how many on each tested rotor(then highlight with paint marker or texta). All other info on rotors is factory stamped so there is no mix up with a hand engraved figure.

I have noticed massive variations of magnetism on identical to look at OLD ROTORS.

It is no problem if you don't have a puller yet and want to compare or confirm your suspicions.
You can see how many nails or whatever while it is still mounted on a steel crank end.
I have noticed little to no difference whether testing its capacity while mounted on a crank or removed.

I also include an earth wire between all ignition components when I make harnesses.

Hope this helps a bit?
Have fun  :)
