The left has been absent on the 650 motors I have opened.

The right looks like the bolt which retains the right piston oil squirter.

Perhaps it was not loose enough to cause significant oil pressure loss.

I'm once again hoping to mine the rich vein of knowledge on this site.  I'm fitting a new camchain to my 1983 CX650E.  I noticed that there are two bolt positions (indicated with red arrows).  The left hand bolt is missing, and the RH one is loose.  The close-up pic shows this better (with missing bolt location marked in blue. 
I haven't been able to discover what the purpose is of these bolts.  How can the bike be running so well for four years with this fault?  There is no sign of any mangled steel in the bottom of the cases. 
Can anyone help with diagnosis and, perhaps, remedy?

Be encouraged, I found installing a Caltric G8 stator and installing a full Rea-San Hall-Effect Kit to be an easy task on my 1981 CX including setting the timing - just follow the instructions provided by Ray and have your bike's ignition system powered up. Eliminates all the old and weary components of the charging and timing systems. Cheers, Paul

General Discussion / Re: I Need a Reg/Rec for a lithium Battery
« Last post by J.C. on 16-Feb-20, 23:18 »
My understanding was that Lithium Ion batteries have the charge controller built in, JC. Because there is more to it than jujst voltage. ALl the Lithium batteries I've ever used (e.g. cordless tools) have both a charge controller and balancing controller built in to the battery pack. On the other hand, phone and laptop batteries don't the controllers in them are in the phone/laptop.... More research required I think....

Some do, some don't - or that was the case last time I checked - the last battery I bought was an EarthX one, specifically because it had the charge controller built in that many of the other ones at that time lacked.

May be different now, a couple of years on.

That is a really nice machine.

Mine's the 650 Katana & awaiting restoration (one day, I hope).

The difference is that the 650 was the only shaft drive of the series & it never had the fairing.

I've even found one for Doddsy.......a real bummer when you think about it. A guy buys a new Katana in 1985, rides it for 2K miles, goes to jail in 1986 and dies in prison in the 90's without ever riding it again.  2cry

If all else fails ...dropping the motor and replacing the stator  is a piece of cake even for a dummy like me!
Good luck with it all
Ace

I have very clear memories of your anxiety when I first suggested you do it. You have come a very long way for a humble (now retired) school principal happy0159
