Stay healthy and get rest while you go at 7/wk. Take extra care to avoid losing focus. :-)

I get the fcr 41's tomorrow so I have polished the inlet ports
Internally and externally, I'm still waiting on many parts from Germany S/D , they are damn slow but if they can find some obscure bits I'll be happy, like those tapered rubber hoses to the engine breather, new indicators and a couple of small bits, I guess the choke lever will become spare parts to keep with the mikuni which I will keep working on

When I get the new clutch locator piece I will remove the clutch cover and see about getting some pictures of exactly how the Barnett plates sit and fit

why did you polish the inlet ports? The surface shouldn't be too rough but it shouldn't be polished either.

Brutally honest would be cause I'm not as clever as I thought I was and a mate suggested that move, on the bright side I only used some scotchbrite and water so maybe didn't alter the surface that much, I'm living and learning , thanks your knowledge seems endless

Yeah the surface roughness helps with fuel/air mixing (micro turbulence). port matching is a bigger issue because repeals can change the air speed in undesirable ways. standard green scotchie is pretty smooth though... actually just realised i don't know if everyone uses the same colours for scotchie grades: green, cleaning things - grey, taking the gloss off paint (about the same as dry 600 grit) - red, taking paint off (about the same as dry 400 grit)?

Do you recommend refitting these inlet ports or trying to source a non vandalized set
