I have posted a link on here somewhere to a very nice looking stainless repair kit BUT it all depends if the horseshoe is free. You may be able to check that if you remove cam cover but not always.
Just a top end is possible in frame so as long as horseshoe moves ok i would repair lockbolt, fit engine and try and get it running, fitting as little as possible

Sorry dont see the point in spending that much when you have to completely remove top yoke to use it and its not necessary to use a torque wrench anyway

Both should be in manual but if light goes out oil is ok and you wont get full compression till after its been run and is warm

I am working on a members 500 and found play in the swing arm.
As usual the collar was worn more than the bushes.
Normal hours spent removing bushes and bronze ones ordered from Julie.
Next problem new collar needed Silvers and CMS  both well over £80 delivered and Silver no stock.
Found Andy Ceepoc on ebay had stock and delivered from Germany in 3 days for £69.
I know Andy has a mixed rep on here but in this case i cant praise him enough.

Looking at the pictures for that item i would fit the 1200 volt one simply because it is finned to disipated heat and its only pennies dearer

I used to use a diamond file on all Honda four points when sevicing and if not "flat" within a few strokes replace them.
If i had a regular customer i knew that all they would need is a light clean and regap

Well i just bought some

Worries me it is semi synthetic listed for a car so may have friction inhibiters that wont do clutch any good

Cranks probably are worth doing now due to short supply, maybe Alpha bearings?
