    Glad it has finally arrived Geoff, finger crossed on the start up.
    What you need to check are the usual things before running the bike, i suspect you may need to check on the upgrades.
    What you do not want is what I found in a 1130 Trek. During the strip,Fuel pump finally arrived-dscf1386.jpgFuel pump finally arrived-dscf1390.jpg the timing was spot on , no slack in the timing chain and the adjuster , well within serviceable tolerances ?

    Will look out that spare original screen , if you cant find one. Might be cheaper to buy a new Eagle screen in Oz .

    Still working on it Laurence.

    Bike fired and ran on two cylinders with a naturally asperated No 1 pot. No compression.
    First sign of unwell was tiny flakes of silver ali in the airbox around the trumpets (engine side of the air filter ) think this has been blown back into the airbox up the trumpets from number one .
    Air box off, pulled out the coils sticks , all good.
    Took out the plugs, left to right 3 good , 2 good , 1 solid , more pressure, snap, head comes off the plug.
    Pulled it apart , all timing marks etc good. cams out , top end strip , moment of truth "carnage".
    You can see the spark end of the plug hammered into the head, no wonder it would not come out !

    No sign of valve to piston contact on 2 or 3.

    Will expect Errol will be able to give us some clues .

    Looks like the initial failure was the head falling off one of the inlet valves. Possibly a flaw in the head-stem joint.
    With the valve missing, the aluminium flakes would have blown back through the open port. Loose valve head bouncing around between piston and head did all the rest of the carnage. I'm surprised that it broke a second valve though. They usually just bend when cobbered.
