Update
I’ve finished fitting the new parts which were timing chain, modified tensioner blade, modified de-comp, cam bearings, water pump bearing and starter repair kit!
Along with new oil gaskets and seals etc!

Firstly the engine noise is much better now so well happy with that!

Although the starter repair kit has been fitted and for some reason the starter will not
Turn at all now? I followed the instructions with the sprague spring and the starter clutch
Only took 1 shim to bring into spec! Is there anything I could have done wrong??

Also seems to have more free play on kick starter which is making it hard to catch?

Any help or suggestions would be well appreciated! Cheers lee..

My starter is intermittently sticking! I will try to breathe new life into it tomorrow if not
Will go for the R6mod!
As for the kick starter having more free play is it possible to knock it just a fraction off
It’s ideal position? It doesn’t make any noises! But it’s possible I could have disturbed
It???

well you are more than likely one spline out on the kickstart arm. let it go on and come further forwards tot he front wheel. you get more kick then.

difficult to think you can have got it wrong inside and yet it still functions. it wouldn't work at all if it was fitted wrong - not that i can think of anyway!

That makes sense I think I’ve over worried it a bit paranoid I might have to take side
Casing back off and disturb my new gasket and seals and oil etc!

It’s currently running a YUASA YTZ7S battery!
Is that okay or is there an upgrade?

Also can anyone tell me which R6 starter I need?
A mate said he’s got one I can have it’s a 5eb!
Any good?? Cheers lee..

I've had excellent luck with Shorai batteries. The LFX14L2-BS12 is what Shorai recommends and I've had great luck with that exact battery across a few bikes - my SV1000 (custom subframe so I didn't have space for OEM), WR450F (2 of them - 03 and 14), and now on the FS570. They last a long time (next to no self discharge): I've been using the same one (first in the SV, now in the WR because I'd rather use the older one in something with a kickstart) since 2012.

Thanks for that! The one I have is brand new and it’s up to the job apparently!
Still need to know if I need a specific R6 starter or will any R6 starter do???
