    Engine rebuild time!

    As the riding season has slowed down here on the northern California coast, I feel the need to re build my engine, which tmk has never been done (34k+ miles). So, my questions are... this:Name:  $_3.JPG

Size:  54.1 KB should be the correct gasket kit to do a complete rebuild, I think. Is anything missing? Is there anything not said in the wiki that I should be aware or or expect? I plan on getting a new g8 from custom rewinds, but is there a place to get new pulsars? My advance pulsars are gone, granted that I don't need it with my ignitech, but how long until the low set go out? I would rather have it and not need it, you know. I also intend on replacing my wiring harness... Should be fairly straight forward, and I intend on adding a 12v charging dock as power supply to a video camera to eliminate the need to replace batteries or charge it up elsewhere. The g8 should have no issues keeping up with the demand, right? More questions to follow, if I think of any that is.

    hat kit is suitable for your CDI bike and the parts are all perfectly usable..... however, I'd be inclined to use genuine head gaskets.

    Or do a retorque after the first run up to temp [burping], again at 100 miles, 500 miles and 1000.

    The replacement pulsers should be along soooooon.

    Your set also contains no oilseals.

    There is an oil seal kit you can get form a company in Canada on fleabay. It will include seals you don't need but it includes every oil seal in the bike. grab it up, and while you're at it replace your gearshift, tach, and main seal (behind the water pump mech seal). The valve cover and drain gasket (to the far right in your pic) are garbage in my experience. I have used those head gaskets and cover gaskets, the ones I had in my kit were acceptable thickness.

    Could you give me a link to the kit you are referring to, bahamadave? A link to the tach and main seals would be great as well. I replaced my shifter seal shortly after buying the bike. Doesn't leak a drop of oil, but I am pretty sure I have a bent shifting fork... Can't think of a good reason NOT to pull this thing apart though, lol.

    There will be seals in it that you won't need, and the names may be a little off, but mine included the tach drive seal as well.
