Found two cracks in my bare frame today. Same place as everyone else's and the same problem of finding someone to fix it.

If I didn't have so much invested in the engine, I would throw it away.

Don't throw it away; I'll come on over and take it away.

Tinkering away with this years upgrades - hoping to be done in about a month to 6 weeks:

Removed forks, packed up and sent off to K-Tech for a refresh, 20SSK piston kits and a set of linear springs (sorry no pics)
Installed rear Ohlins DU235 & started installing a Kaemna Single Seat...

Pretty pissed off at the quality of the seat actually - came with 4 spiders webs, poor parting and the fit is pretty kak... Some cutting & shutting, grinding & filling required... It also requires fab of a bracket for the rear light, indicators and number plate as well as making some rubber seat-to-frame spacer / supports...

If Id known it was gonna be this much work Id never have ordered it and would have gone for the standard single seat from sharkskinz or similar... grrr - oh well itll look good when its done... hopefully...!

Finally got around to painting my motor cases. Pic 1.

I used VHT SP148 primer and VHT SP139 GM Satin Black paint. It has a nice satiny gloss finish without being overly bright.

I made the block-off covers that you see in the pic out of 1/8" thick masonite board. Rather than spend a month of Sundays taping and retaping the parts I used the covers to protect the machined surfaces on the cases and covers during both the bead blasting and painting processes. Pic 2.

Next up is curing the paint. A co-worker buddy of mine works part time at a local airport and graciously offered to bake the parts in an industrial oven that he uses for baking powder coated parts.

Made the mistake once of baking some brake calipers that I sprayed with VHT high temp ceramic paint in my kitchen oven. After about 20 minutes the whole house was filled with smoke,my eyes were burning,and I had every door and window open with fans blowing the smoke out.

Whole house stunk for almost week after that. Won't be making that mistake again.

Rather than start a whole new thread, I'm hoping to do crank-case breather mod soon, could anyone please advise:
A: What K&N part number is (I'd rather buy in AUS than pay for US shipping)
B: The ID/OD dimensions of the breather hose as I'd kind of like to do something like this:
https://www.ducati.ms/forums/57-super...-hose-mod.html

Thanks - jj

Dunno what the exact part number for the K&N breather filter is JJ but the filter is 2'' in diameter,has a 1 1/2" filter height,and has a 3/4" flange I.D. Pic 1.

The only breather filter that I can find on the K&N website with those measurements is part number 62-1360.

Breather hose I.D. is obviously 3/4". You're also gonna need an adapter to connect the extension hose to the breather filter. A piece of thick wall PVC pipe with a 3/4" O.D. is one option. Pic 2.

Just a heads-up JJ,TPO Parts sells both the K&N breather filter and the breather hose extension kit which includes an aluminum hose adapter.

Here's the link to the TPO breather filter. Click me.>>>https://www.tpoparts.com/cat093/inde...&product_id=32

Here's the link to the hose extension kit. Click me.>>>https://www.tpoparts.com/cat093/inde...product_id=166

Pic 1 is the K&N breather filter that I got from TPO Parts. Pic 3 is the hose extension kit that I bought that goes with it.
