Mid grade and premium. I am sending the head to Kibblewhite Precision Machining, Inc
580-H Crespi Drive Pacifica CA 94044 USA, www.kpmius, for a look/see on repairs and upgraded valves. Maybe it is salvageable? :187:

Best of luck, fingers crossed that someone can repair/overhaul it.

Anybody thought of putting some kind of quick release fuel connector on that fuel line? I really don't like the fact that you have to unscrew that banjo bolt and mess around with replacing washers,.....I reused mine but how many times can you get away with that before they leak I'm wondering??

Hmm, I think that I'll stick with using the originals then.

Summary : I'll be sticking with Osram Nightbreaker Laser Bulbs for now !  :169:



How do you find the light output of these compared to the original bulbs, any real noticeable difference?

Looking at the placement of the actual LED's on that bulb in my link did make me wonder about the beam pattern and whether or not the electrical height adjustment feature on the Trophy would result in the same beam height range has with a 'normal' bulb.

Maybe they pre-stretch it at the factory either by running the engine in or via mechanical test equipment? /shrug Chains stretch, and they stretch the most at the beginning of their service life.

I dunno, sounds plausible I guess but I've never heard of that being done to a cam chain, whether it be for a motorcycle or 4 wheeled vehicle come to that matter.

I really don't know the specific type, but M@rcel has them in his trophy SE, but it would look like it has double the output of a halogen H4 bulb. For 99 I'll throw it in with the next service.

That seems expensive, I were looking at these ones earlier,....no idea if they are any good or compare to the ones M@rcel has??

Not that I can imagine anyone ever using a Torque wrench to fit an Oil Filter,
but it is specified in the Service Manual to be tightened to 10Nm !



Yes, that's correct, I do follow the workshop manual and torque mine down to that funny enough,....I hate the location/way that they have mounted the filter, it's difficult to do by hand or see potential leaks.
