General GS500 Discussion / Re: Oil pan gasket reinforcement
« Last post by ShowBizWolf on Today at 08:26:38 PM »
I'm agreeing with sledge. When I replaced my oil pan gasket last year, I made extra extra sure both surfaces were perfectly clean and smooth. Replaced the old gasket with an OEM Suzuki one and everything has been great since.

I have a bit of a technical issue. The Daytona guage that I bought came with a Suzuki gs500f "ready" speedo drive cable. Converting the analogue signal to digital.. however it doesn't fit in my gs500 speedo drive on the forks.

The GS500 speedo drive appears to be 15mm, but the unit I have is 18mm. We're the speedo drive cables different on the gs500 and gs500f?

IIRC, when I installed my studs, they wound/threaded in the full 25mm and bottomed out there.

J_Walker, that's funny stuff :D

I was half considering trying to find some arc magnets to enact a repair but I'm fairly doubtful ones in the right curvature are available easily and I've no idea how strong the stock ones are. Neodymium ones could be a fair bit smaller for the same magnetism but its just guesswork and hoping they don't fry the RR or are too small and don't produce a big enough field for the stator to interact with.

I'll see, chipping out the old magnets will be pretty grim although a blow torch might soften the crumbly adhesive.

Next thing on the list really is to wire everything up, get it MOT tested and enjoy riding it into the autumn :) I'm going to build a new engine this winter for it.

I used JB weld to hold the old bits in place, the balance wasn't even effected, I was prepared to balance it, but it wasn't even a gram off.

Actually the magnets weigh different weights more so then the adhesive.

I let the JB weld cure for well over two weeks before exposing it to oil tho.

They are all accounted for, the large chunk was rattling around but was still in place. A couple of the slivers were ground off by me holding the flywheel shaft (access being poor) and some came away when I was gently cleaning it. They quite conveniently attach themselves to the rotor housing.

Could be the noise, perhaps it got knocked when it fell over the other day and splintered a magnet and I could hear that ticking away. Bit strange though as I don't think it hit the ground, since I was in the way...

Sourced a replacement '90 rotor that should fit which hopefully will show up this week (from Germany). I'll replace the flywheel bolt too.

Anyway, I'll look into making up a better flywheel holding tool, the spanner isn't a great fit. The proper Suzuki one is about 90... I'm wondering if a strap wrench would work?
