Trying to get this thing ready for the next race season. However, one of the stud holes where the exhaust bolts on in the engine is stripped. Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? It was like that when I got it.
Also, does anyone know what jetting is recommended for uni pod filters or velocity stacks(I think 90 main 38 slow is stock)?
What gearing is ideal for Loudon? Leave it stock or change it?
Fork oil weight recommendations?


Thanks!

I would use a helicoil thread repair. Buy the repair kit for whatever size your exhaust stud is supposed to be (M8x1.25?), drill the hole to correct size as specified in the repair kit, tap it with helicoil tap, insert the helicoil, trim the helicoil and you're done.

Thanks. Do you know what other bikes have compatible sprockets? I am finding a ton for CB350s but not having much luck for the 175.. Thanks again

What happened to Sprocket Specialists? I haven't needed sprockets for awhile so I wasn't aware there was an issue.

My last order with Sprocket Specialists was a nightmare. They took forever sending the sprocket out for my MT125R. When it arrived it was not the correct dimension and would not fit. After calls and emails they agreed to send a replacement. The replacement never came. Overall nasty customer service people and crap service. I will not use them again.


I called the guy at Rebel Gears explaining I need a sprocket fast. He knew what I needed, made and shipped the sprocket the next morning. They even sent it overnight just to be sure everything was OK before the race. Way better service and half the cost of the other guys.

Got a link for Rebel Gears?
