    Tear down

    Tore into the FXR yesterday to freshen up the gaskets and try and stop some oil leaks, rocker boxes were leaking pretty bad. So far I've found rear wheel out of alignment, motor needs lining up to make primary belt track right. The wiring absolutly sucks. The starter ring gear (on the new BLD clutch hub) has two teeth chipped. and so forth and so on. I guess the only way to make it yours is to tear everything down and start from stratch.

    Yeah, I'm changing the inerds on the lifters and making them solid adjustable, with one piece pushrods.

    Little noisy, but more power.

    Does anyone know of a cleaning agent that will eat cooked on oil off? I don't want to tear heads down to sandblast. I got them pretty clean with Krud Kutter and pressure washer.

    They are, the adjustment is on the lifter insert, the pushrods are nonadjustable.

    Heat em up and try easy off. Try it in a spot under the rocker box first.
