Similar to your no. 3 Steve, I’ve heard the word PICNIC used in diagnosing IT issues.

Problem In Chair Not In Computer.

Feel free to substitute the word Problem with other appropriate words.........

I've had a DSS one on my 550 K3 for a year or so. No issues. Works fine.

Thanks Paul. Going  to have a go at re-tapping, but have got a used one from Steve at 400fourbits as a back up.

Desperately Seeking!! / 400/4 special head nuts
« on: July 28, 2019, 12:44:48 PM »
Just reassembling after tightening head down after an oil seep. The thread in the top of one of the special head nuts is suspect so I am after a replacement. These are the nuts that not only hold the head down, but a bolt from the rocker cover screws into the top. Listed as not available on DSS and CMSL sites. Anyone know of a supplier, or possibly have a decent one for sale? Many thanks H.

Top tip on the red rubber grease. Rubber gasket staying in place now.
The bolts for the rocker cover are a mixture of all sorts, and thread on one is suspect.
Planning to get a set of new. Can anyone recommend a supplier? I see Nurse Julie got a full set from  Yamiya but I only need the rocker cover bolts. Cheers H

Another vote for ignition switch. Same happened in my K3. Put a DSS one on whilst the original one is being sorted.

Hi Andrew. Sorry to hear your news. Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery, and hopefully you'll be back on the bikes before you know it! Take care. Harold.

CB350/400 / Rocker cover gasket
« on: July 16, 2019, 01:50:50 PM »
I've had an annoying oil leak from top of cylinders, so I started by checking the cylinder head nut torques. Most were not to correct torque so carefully tightened and got them all to torque up. Hopefully this was reason for the leak.

I've come to put the rocker cover back on complete with new rubber gasket.
How do I hold the gasket in place whilst fitting the rocker cover? I've seen red rubber grease mentioned on here. Will that do the trick??

Many thanks

Down in Sidmouth, Devon for a long weekend. Caught a glimpse of  blue 400/4 on the seafront on Saturday late afternoon. About an hour later, saw another, red this time. Anyone on here?
