Hi all, I'm hoping someone here can help...

After being without a GT500 for 35 years I finally got another one. It is a pile of rust held together by scraps of chrome & paint. The guy I bought it from told me he'd used premix which I believe will kill the crankshaft bearings but....the main thing was - I got another GT500!!!!!!!!!

Can anyone recommend someone to perform a little light tune on the engine whilst at the same time giving it's internals a make-over too - preferably in South / South East England...?

Kent preferably.

The bottom of our street would be brilliant!

:)

Pete O'Dell. No idea where in the UK he is but he's a lot closer than I am. :wink:

Brilliant, I’ll give him a call. Peterborough by the look of it,

Not quite the bottom of our street but closer than Birmingham I guess :)

Hi MalkyB,

I had my T500 race engines tuned and prepared by Graham File Tuning. Graham is based in Hythe and although he does not carry the parts as Pete Odell does if you source the necessary bits he can put it together (he's had practice on my 2 engines :D ). He is really more oriented to race tuning/preparation than road builds as such but my very mildly tuned 34mm Carb engine made 54 bhp/43 lb/ft torque at the rear wheel (+pipes/ign/head upgrades etc.). Employing a top tuner to do your engines is not a cheap process however, you can justify it for racing but probably not for a road bike. All in all Mr Odell is the man for you I think.

Cheers Geoff

I should have mentioned that Pete is well capable of prepping the engine for more performance, up to full race builds.

Cheers Geoff
