finished my E50 rebuild with a treats 50 kit and hi hi head. admittedly was getting very impatient at the end of reassembling it and started it up to hear the following:
Ive heard some kits rattle but I dont know what that sounds like - is that all this is or do I have a serious problem here? Definitely a metallic sound that keeps pace with RPM...I am leaning toward the latter. I installed a temp gauge with the kit which recommended to remove the crush washer on the plug. That combined with the hi comp head makes me think the increased depth of the plug into the cylinder is causing a no no even though i didnt notice anything when i turned it by hand. let it run for a while to warm up and begin the breakin process and took it for a short ride a few blocks varying throttle and staying at low rpm. when i got back the bike bogged out and died. restarted fine for a minute then bogged out again, wouldnt restart. went to check the plug to see what it looked like or if it fouled and it is now tight as fuck in the head and i busted my shitass harbor freight ratchet trying to loosen it. wont know the answer for sure till i go get a new ratchet worth using but just wanted to get a few opinions first. please be gentle. really trying to get this bike sorted so i can hit up a rally this coming weekend and im super bummed its not running right.
