Pulled the rod caps on Ralfy's bike this AM.

"It's worse than that, he's dead Jim!"

Clear particulate damage same as Mark S's.

Bollocks! And still the factory sez 'Just flush it out'. What a wank!

Should I be concerned about mine?

I don't fucking know! I wish I did!

Yours though has never been as noisy after rollerising as Mark's, Ralf's or mine. I've also just done another one and it too just has that sort of 'Whickery' noise that rollers usually have rather than the louder rumble that bikes I've seen that have failed later had.

In this I'm simply learning as I go. I have no crystal ball or, unfortunately, magic bullet.

Nah, it's a perfectly reasonable question. I just don't have a bloody answer! I wish I did!

Generally an ounce of prevention is better than a ton of cure but in this situation it seems completely random. The only thing these three bikes have in common is they are all green! Very Happy

On this, are any of you Aussies equipped to do a video? Like a reasonable quality one? Going through this shit needs to be documented before herds of ham-fisted fuckwits take it into their own hands to offer a 'Cheap Fix'.

I have the location and the 'Patients', both my and Ralf's bikes. Perhaps we could at least pull some sort of gem out of this suckhole of shite!

Mine is green, oh shit!

I have a KIT B lying on the desk now, haven't check the condition my greenie flat tappets yet but I guess how the tappets wear will determine the following course of actions.

Hopefully it is just a simple and straight forward rollerisation Suspect

Fuck me drunk! Give me a break! I have four bikes in currently for rollerisation as well as the usual service and maintenance work! If you'd like to drop in and pull the engine and strip it be my bloody guest. Right now I'm trying to free up a bench to pull Ralf's motor. I'm a small, one man business in bumfuck Australia! I can't walk on water, see through metal and I don't have a magic fucking wand!

I'd love to help you out Pete, but you live on the wrong side of the fucking planet! Crying or Very sad

Well, I had planned to ride my '10 (with 12.6K miles) on it the 700 or so miles to Rose Farm Classics for "rollerization."  

But my Norgester buddy backed out, so I -- shame! Embarassed -- trailered it today.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


I think I annoyed at least a couple thou folks by doing a face-stretching, centrifuge-like 60 -- yes, a mile-a-minute -- pace on the slab the whole way.

Took me nearly 15 hours of stultifying driving and an embarrassing large number of bladder-maintenance stops to get here, but I am now ... as Kathi isn't here  queen jocolor -- eating and drinking to excess in a restaurant by my motel near Woodstock.

BUT ... after reading this thread, think I am glad I did trailer the beast.   I "stethoscoped" it before I left and it sounded same on both sides ... but what would I know, anyway?  Rolling Eyes

Will let you know what Jim finds.

Back to beer.  Smile

Nice touch with the flag Bill.

Once Jim has it tuned up and rollerised you can fling in the roller Beetlemap. I think you'll be impressed. Like 'A bit of wee came out' impressed! Very Happy

Bugger, Mine is green and Gord is putting in the rollers. Hope the randomness stays far away. Don't want to have use the Elvis off switch. (.44 magnum).

Make sure the sump is thoroughly cleaned out not just the ridiculous factory suggestion of flushing the engine with a couple of litres of oil.

All flat tappet engines are at the very least suspect. Change to rollers was mid 2012.
