Tech Talk / Re: Bassani exhaust shield
« Last post by LWC82PE on Today at 01:33:23 PM »
Looks great but i  want the hole  rows  the otherway around like below pic. I just emailed you that info now. Thanks

LOTS of places have mesh but i have not bee able to find any that have 1.20mm or 18g with 3.8 holes in mild steel.
3/8 holes only come in sheets 1.5 or 1.6mm thick
Maybe 9mm holes is the go rather than 3/8 too. Another guy is also checking his Bassani

my 700x200 allows for extra so is not ultra critical. I have a friend who wants some too so i am waiting to see what size would work for his pipes so then we can just get the sheets all one size hopefully rather than a few at different sizes.

I think 1.1 should still be ok?. I know 1mm sheet is often around .90mm but thats getting too thin.

Nope, not bent. l wonder if a different internal air pressure? Or the plastic is thicker in one?

l have another old carb here, l checked the floats in it; equal, l'll run with it :-)

Tech Talk / VM38 one float higher!
« Last post by John Orchard on Yesterday at 04:02:23 PM »
What am I not considering? The floats on my OEM Kawa VM38 live in the bowl and slide up & down on posts fastened to the bottom of the fuel bowl.

With bowl off the carb body, I filled the bowl with fuel, I wanted to take a measurement of where the lift-pins sit, that lift the arms that close the needle & seat, when the bowl is full of fuel.

One float sits about 3mm higher than the other, there is no liquid in the float, they are both the same size, they both have about 1.5mm clearance from the side-wall of the bowl.

I wonder if the uneven lift pressure on the needle & seat closing arms would effect smooth needle operation?

Ideas?  :-)

Now now boys, Real men know that Kawasaki's aren't evil,
Everything worth writing about those other brands can be found on a T shirt





wait til you see the heat guard i made for the husky...15 mins, a jig saw and a rule of thumb...im giving it 1/2 to 3/4's of a lap around blackwood...

1/2 to 3/4's of a lap eh?
Are you intending on crashing out or breaking down?
If you are able to define the spot a bit better it would be a great help to the sweeps that are going to tow you out :o
