The Wossners are too high compression for the coast according to reports. Pinging experienced. They needed a bit machined off the top to bring the compression down.

True, but I now know what to do and no more problems.

Dieseldawie, I think I had more Groot K@k with mine than you. My gearbox sounded like a chainsaw and it was spilling out oil at the front sprocket. Luckily good sense prevailed (not often for me), phone DocKlr and he advised me.

I took the motor out and took it over Oom Doc. The sprocket output shaft bearings collapsed. The inner needle bearing of this shaft was in a kazilion pieces in the oil strainer. The output shaft spur gears were very badly pitted. Fortunately Doc has plenty of good quality spares and he could replace what was necessary.

I was under the impression we could get away with a quick hone job on the barrel and new rings. I was advised that I would be taking a huge chance. So I ended up biting the bullet and went for a Wossner 680 kit. I am still running in the engine, but I can feel there is a huge improvement in available power = smile factor. I would advise going this route, but get to person that knows these conversions. I am referring to people like DocKlr, Groenie or CapeKlr. I also think I over capitalised on my scoot, but I learned a few things. Old saying" Never buy a car if you cannot afford the tyres" I was seriously considering getting a GS1200 or 990KTm next year. But what happens if these great machines break..I would have to sell off some limbs, wife and kid to afford new parts for these machines. KLR are cheaper(not cheap) to keep on the road/dirt. And I enjoy the scoot now more than ever.

Best thing at Doc`s place- saw the 2 "Skaapies" of Doc...wicked!

Ya that 680 is something else. Totally transforms the bike

Yes Dawie, Doc did the Dynojet conversion as well, but not using the official Dynojet kit par-say. The jets were changed and some drilling was done on the slide and mixture setting. I was quite nervous about this, but from start-up the bike ran well. But it is a s&*thouse full of work and it took forever. I took the frame apart and serviced basically everything except for the steering bearings. Leave that for another day!

I still need to mod the standard exhaust once the engine is run in. I am also possibly looking at an aftermarket tail piece and mid-section pipe. The tweety sound does not cut it anymore for me.
