    Replacement Headder pipes, part 2

    So today, I bit the bullet and decided to strip the bike.
    after removing all the panels AGAIN  :172:, I worked out how to remove the radiator, I was going to just free it off, but then decided to drain all the fluid off, I will refill it with new, I don't know how long it has been in there, so it won't hurt anything.
    I sprayed some anti seize penetrating on the header pipe nuts, been there before doing cars, so I learnt  :008:..I was trying to figure out how to get the bar that runs across in front of the top set of nuts on the pipes, I have crash bars fitted. .then realised they was secured with two 6mm Allen key bolts, hey presto, access gained.
    I was surprised to find these was not tight, but the exhaust didn't seem to blow  :084:....anyway, header pipes off, waiting on my Triumph dealer to get new gaskets in.
    The next job was to replace the cable that runs from the battery to the alternator, easy job with the panels off, all terminals duly cleaned and connections made.
    Well that's as far as I got today, so just waiting on the gaskets, and next Saturday, work day's get in the way  :008:

    Wilko, how do you see the exhaust outlets inside the combustion chambers? exhaust and intake valves. Cinder?

    Sorry digital, I don't understand the question, are you referring to the ports / valves inside the cylinder head.

    Wilko, I mean you look through the windows that you see in the photos to see if the valves look clean.

    Hi digital, yes, sorry, I understand now, mine somewhat look like yours, unfortunately the header pipes are back on now, and most of the other bits, just the body panels left to fit.
    My bike has to live outside, so the British weather, and a family birthday party put pay  to finishing it off today.

    I wish my engine was as clean as yours, it looks new...but then again, your in Spain, so it lives in the sunshine, where mine is attacked by the British elements.

    What I did notice when I started it for the first time, with the "new" header pipes, is the sound it made, different to what it did, unless it was blowing where the pipes meet the block, I have used new gaskets, and torqued to the correct setting of 19nm, and also where the silencer joins into the back of the header, mine had a slight hole in it, although it was still covered by the clamp.

    Anyway, I will be glad to get it back together, I'm looking forward to taking it around Ireland in May.

    Hi Wilko, I had not seen a message.

    First congratulate the person who turns years.

    The engine you see clean in the photo is not the one that I currently carry in the Trophy.

    The Trophy, I have one of Tiger Explorer that completely, we disassemble all its interior, I changed the cylinder head, the gearbox, the shirts, the rings and the pistons.

    The one in the photo is that of miTrophy, it had 90,000 km, its interior was also completely disassembled and put everything new, shirts, hoops, pistons, water / oil pump, thermostat, connecting rod and crankshaft bearings, cylinder head that I bought in the Kingdom United for eBay 100 new (only had the spark plug thread of the number one cylinder defective). I took it to the grinder, they made new thread, new valve seals and it was perfect.

    I also changed the timing chain, the timing chain tensioner, the water / oil pump. all the engine gaskets, the cylinder head bolts and everything I saw needed replacing, so now that engine is completely new to replace it.

    The motorcycle is my work tool, without the motorcycle no money comes into the house.

    In case of a complicated breakdown, I could not spend many days without the motorcycle, then it is faster to replace the entire engine and in a weekend my son and I change it and then we calmly observe the extracted engine.
