I did this a couple of months ago. So far, no problems, but I did have to sort through some tiles with my straight-edge until I found a good candidate.solar-ex said:I have heard some people use a piece of granite tile, DO NOT DO THIS, I have been a granite installer for many years (father has a tile co. brother has a tile co. uncle has a tile co. you get the picture) and never have I seen a piece of granite tile that is perfectly flat, ever..
I raced this machine for 12 years and managed a team of three riders and bikes. This overheating problem was so chronic with these bikes I set out to find the reason. Being an engineer and owning a very capable machine shop I was able to see the warpage that occurs on this engine that would otherwise be considered OK by a typical mechanic. I determined that creating a good flat surface match was the key and have repaired maybe 50 engines in said manner.richardlwebbjr said:I am way impressed with this. How do you know all of this????
