Where did you get the ram tubes for the throttle bodies? And do they do them for the K1100 throttle bodies?

Thanks
Steve


Hi Steve,

I got the ram tube with the conversion kit from Specialist Components Click here! Yes they do them for the K1100 and K1200 heads. I know this as I was sent the incorrect ones but they exchanged them. I cannot find them for sale on the website but may give them a shout!

Hi Steve,

 

Sorry I have not replied to your email I have not been on TMF for some time. I thought I would put the 2.4mm valve lift cam timing guide that I used on the forum for others.

 

1. Set the cylinder no.1 to TDC using a DTI gauge.

2. Set the DTI gauge up on the inlet cam. Make sure that the pointer axis is parallel to the valve. (It is important to get an accurate measurement - DTI (Dial Test Indicator) gauges are precise measurement equipment that measure graduations in 0.001mm.

3. Ensure the DTI pointer is on the back of the cam bucket. (DTI needs to have a long thin pointer attachment or it will foul on the cam lobe and give an incorrect reading)

4. Rotate the Inlet camshaft clockwise using a 19mm spanner from its base circle until a lift of 2.4mm* has been achieved.

5. Repeat the same process for the Exhaust camshaft but this time rotate the Exhaust camshaft anti-clockwise.

 

*2.4mm is base set up for the 1200 range 16v RS cams and standard 8v cams. Note: For LT 16v cams 2.0mm should be used.

 

This information is a guide - use at your own risk!

 

Always be very careful when independently turning the crankshaft or camshafts to ensure that your valves do not come into contact with one another or the pistons. If you get any resistance stop and investigate!

 

Hope all are well :)

 

Warren

Hi all

 

I am using the K1200LT head and was wondering does the hole circled in read need to be pluged

 

It appears to go through to the oil gallery

 

It only appears on the 1200 head

 

Thanks

 

Bernard

Surely, the whole face is going to be covered by the sheet of aluminium with cam oil seals etc, so look and see if there is a corresponding hole that lines up.

Just noticed this, yes I would plug it, your right it's on the main oil gallery, you could loose oil pressure to your cam bearing if not plugged.
