Woo-Hoo! I got my cylinder studs out without breaking any!  I'm so psyched!

That's good news Alan, as sometimes those studs are a bear to remove! BTW, Mike Rieck recommends using a thread locking product when placing the new ones.

I just double nutted the old studs and broke them loose with a box end wrench... "CRACK!" The engine had been open on the bench for over a year, but had never been stored open outdoors. It was my first time around and I'm very glad it was a good experience.

With a quick search of the forums I learned quite a bit, most of it from Mike.  There were a few other posters that probably have built fewer engines than He does in an average year, so I ignored their conflicting advice.

Thanks Ben, stay tuned!

Alan you are lucky as when Mike and I tried to remove my K2 studs we broke the first one at the base...took 2 hours to remove the base from the hole.... Undecided

Yes, you're right there.  I guess the bike gods must want this one finished.

I received my stainless engine bolt kit from Jim Spillane (of SOHC4 fame) today, if I'd have known that he was just up in Deerfield, NH I would have asked to pick them up in person.

Ordered on the 23rd and received them on the 27th, how great is that?

Now to order up those front end parts I need....

Very cool Andy, I had no idea where he was located so it came as a bit of a surprise. Have you been in touch lately? Maybe drop by there sometime when you're up north?  Wink

I'm probably putting in a BikeBandit order soon, if anyone would like to split the shipping costs I can probably add a few items and bring them to a BEER NIGHT....

Edit: flat rate shipping is $8.95, so if anyone wants to add anything I'll be ordering in the next few weeks.

Just picked up a nice set of genuine Granturismo grips from an unsuspecting ebayer, this is getting good.

In an act of simplification I've parted with my little blue clown car.
Next big project will be to put my basement workshop in shape to begin on my K3 again.

I've settled on the stainless Dekelvic full exhaust, carb boots from Yamiya, and a cheap pattern seat from eBay.
It's been so long since I've worked on this bike that the entire aftermarket has evolved.

Does anyone have any other suggestions to take a look at, or run screaming from?

I figure the full system would be a good choice, I'm not building a cafe racer, so sound level does matter. Sohc4 member Dino has a few good ride along videos and it sounds pretty good to me. And the price just can't be beat.
