We don't tolerate threats here,so don't go down that road
But you tolerate borderline abuse and all you can say is "Damn..." ?
That not a little double standards?
Yeah I've been here for some years...I've seen the 'busting balls' and sometimes its quite funny....But until you've met every single GSXR owner in the world (or would be owner)...and profiled them...You can't assume shit about someone to the level that that 750Squidiot
did, and if you do I'd expect some authority to come in and dial that back a little.
Would it be cool to assume stuff about someone due to gender or colour? Yeah it's not the same, but still...C'mon that response from him was unnecessary...Could've just said "Don't do that"
IMO...OP...Working on rebuilding a multi cylinder 4 stroke to the level of precision as any Japanese sports bike engine is likely beyond any novice's ability.
I've been working on bikes for quite a few years and rebuilt a 4 stroke single out of a 125, and a few 2 stroke top ends. I've also done valve clearances on my GSXR and basic cam timing on an old Ninja.
It's not rocket science but you need high quality (some of which specialist) tools....a lot of time and patience...And you better be good at accurately measuring things with those specialist tools.
I would just take it to someone experienced or buy a used motor....Unfortunately (and in agreement with oldgixxer
) that race motor is probably going to cause you more grief than its worth.
If it wasn't recently refreshed (and why would any racer refresh a motor before selling it)...It will likely need to be....Top end at least....Springs...Retainers...Collets...Value guides...Valves themselves all could be on their last legs and you won't really know unless you open it up and strip.
Then even if you do decide to refresh...It may not contain stock components (unless it was raced in a Superstock rules type championship)...so you may have to source exotic parts.
IMO...Not worth it...but since you've pulled the plug anyway...good luck.
