Simon I canít make it out in your picture, but thereís a rubber molding that goes between the fan and radiator to seal the space between them. Doesnít look like you have it there.

does anyone know the difference between the .5 and the .02 speed sensor gasket? I'm building non abs and not sure what version I need. Also having a hard time locating a front muffler hangar.

Tentatively installed the cooling system. Iím having issues with both deflectors. They re catching the grooves in the lower triple tree when turning the forks left and right. Any ideas? Still need help with the speed sensors too.

The deflectors work in conjunction with the plastic lower panel that attaches to the lower triple. If you don't plan on installing the panel to the lower triple, you should be able to disassemble the spring loaded mechanism to remove the deflectors from the rad support.

I completed a scratch build last year--take your time and enjoy the experience!

Are you referring to thickness of the shims? The shims will dial-in the spacing of the sensor to the abs ring--the service manual will have the specs.

Thanks, I have that plastic lower. I will install it and that should fix it.

After filling with coolant I got a leak coming from the thermostat housing where the thermostat flange bolts together, and where the hoses connect. I am pretty sure I had these very tight but still a leak. Iíve pulled it off and plan on re-tightening, adding RTV, and swapping the oem clamps for adjustable ones (which will be hard due to the tight space). And ideas or tips?

I wouldn't recommend using RTV. It's not really an ideal permanent fix. If your thermostat housing is leaking from between it's two halves, then you will have to replace it in it's entireity. If it's leaking from between the housing and the cylinder head, then you will need a new O-ring. The torque figure for the three retention bolts is only 5Nm, so don't over-tighten them as you can easily distort the plastic and you will never get a good seal. Just smear the O ring with a little silicone lubricant before bolting it it into position. Also if you replace the crappy 'Norma' clamps with conventional jubilee clips, make sure you buy ones with rolled edges and a smooth internal band so they don't cut into the rubber hoses and finally do not over-tighten them (2.5Nm max) as you will distort the plastic tubes of the the thermostat housing. Better to have to nip them up if you get a slight weep post re-assembly, than discover you have damaged the housing by being too heavy handed.
