I recently replaced my valve cover gasket, the plug hole gaskets, and the o rings for the valve cover bolts. I plan on checking my valve clearances, this weekend, or next. Then ordering shims, and hopefully installing them, (prayers to the shipping gods) the next weekend.

Should I replace the aforementioned gaskets, or are they ok to reuse?

Ok. One more question. Is the motionpro carb sync tool worth a shit, or do you have a better tool to recommend, for throttle body sync?

All those gaskets should last several years and multiple times on and off........ I do ask- why if you were in there that far and especially since you had to pull the cam cap off to change those spark plug well o-rings......... why on earth did you not do the valve adjustment then?- you were already doing 80% of the work or more....

The motion pro is fine, there are better but in that sub 100 price range it is fine.......
I would put a 4 way "t" on it and only remove one vacuum line and make sure all 4 read the same and make adjustments as needed.......good practice to do this before every use!
I have one of them I occassionally use
I have a PCCC one from the 80's with dials about 3 times the size I use far more often
I also have a couple of the "old" mercury stick with real mercury filled ones I do still use as well....... I actually like these the best, but occassionally you do get a bike so far off it will suck all the mercury up one hose and run it through the engine and since you can no longer (legally) buy the mercury to refill it.......... I only use it after I have roughly set them with one of the guage style

woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

But before pulling apart the one above.... Had to get this one started and off of my bench.

Member on here and friend of mine had a bad crank and con rods in his motor. So he found an engine and popped it in knowing that the guy before mentioned having some transmission issues in 2nd or 3rd gear slipping out. Guy thought "maybe it's the quickshifter" so our friend bought the engine knowing it may not be perfect.

It wasn't.... so here's the teardown and a look at the trans. Next video will have measuring, specs, etc. I've already shot it and the case is already back together. Just need to put the top end back together and sides on. Anyway... Enjoy.

A followup to the big ass Suzuki M109R video above.

Didn't do a full teardown video on this engine, but decided to get into the "WTF happened?" side of things. Here's some carnage.....
