Well, even a detuned Bandit make 98PS and just tons quicker and faster than a stock TR-1, so obviously you've got some stomp in your engine.

The oil-level-switch has been dead(-ish) since pretty much when I bought the bike ten years ago. After having a VERY close look myself and admittedly seeing it on another TR1, I figured that the odd dimple right underneath the starter on Gen1 engine cases is actually meant to be drilled out and tapped as it goes straight into the main oil-gallery.

And that's pretty much what I've done today, as the oilchange was due anyway. (That said, you only have to take the right engine cover off, so you could do it withou changing the oil, but it could get messy...)

I'll put the hi-res pictures on my blog and update this post once I have done so.

The oil-pressure switch is a generic item with M10x1 thread, mine's meant to go in VW Vanagon 1.6TD. Unfortunately it's a closer at 0.9Bar (12-ish PSI) pressure, which is pretty much spot on, except for the fact (as you can see in the last picture) the light's always on, when there's pressure in the system. So, I'll have to get that one swapped out, next time I am close to an autoparts-store.

Funnily I noticed that boss today and wondered about it ( I managed to swap the crank and put the gearbox back in today which means it is more together than it was when I bought it!! wohoo!!)

Let us know what switch you end up getting that works as I might just do that myself.

Cheers,

Your knowledge of these bikes is still growing apparently, nanno, from an already impressively high level :GJ: :thanks:

Right, so I've gone and got myself a Facet 7.0008 (0.3Bar) switch, which is normally closed and opens under pressure. The perfect switch would be a Facet 7.0119, which starts to open at 0.5Bar (7PSI).

The reason being the colour-code blue Facet 7.0008 is standard on nearly every VW engine from Golf to Transporter and has been since... literally even though back then it was the colour-code brown 7.0108, but all other specs are the same.

I am pretty sure, if you're in the US you would want to go through the catalogues and find something from a car, which is more common and will then have a different thread. (VW-stuff is M10x1)

Still, works a treat for now and I'll order the other switch in the coming weeks and put the current one onto the turbo-engine.

Nanno, what brand of filter would you suggest? I found a nice round K&N pancake I was gonna buy (RC-1950) but after reading your post about the mesh being to course I got a little worried.

Not too rude, I'd say. :bg:
Nope sorry dude, can't really say. I've built the exhaust for a friend's 750, which is also why all the tube diameters have been scaled down. Additionally when the guy wanted to start the bike on Tuesday, the starter failed. So it'll be a few more days until I get some feedback from him.

That was only referring to petrol filters, not air-cleaners.
