30 Hours Of Ride Time For Top End
« on: May 08, 2009, 11:52:41 PM »
Hello New 2 The Forum and Just Bought A Fl350 And Trying To Get It Going Cylinder At The Shop Getting Bored To Wiseco 81.00 mm Piston. Doing A Complete Top End And Replacing Main Seals I Am Very Excited Since I Am In A Wheelchair Paralyzed From The waist Down And This Machine Seems Pretty Safe For Someone In My Situation. My Question Is I Was Reading Through The Owners Manual And It Says In There That You Have To Do The Top End Every 30 Hours Is This Really Necessary? That Doesn't Seem Like Alot Of Ride Time.  Any Info Wil Help To Keep This Machine Going As Long As I Own It.

No, not at all....If they bore it correctly and you jet it correctly,it should last for years...Be sure to bore it to plenty of clearance and drill some holes in the piston for the exhaust bridge, and you should be good to go...Also, don't forget to relieve that exhaust bridge!!!!
