Tried that but somehow that roller wouldn't rol and would remove more paint then it would apply...

Ah... That's no good.

she is a bit of a 10 footer... I painted the frame with a paintbrush instead of spraypaint. It was a bit of an experiment but it left a lot of texture on the frame.
Its a race bike so not to big of a deal

Use a small roller next time. That way the texture will be more uniform.  ;D

Go to cmsnl.com, find the right model and get the part number. Put the part number into google search and look for results.

Not sure what kind of nut it is but any hardware store usually has a pretty good selection of nuts and bolts. Some of the better stores have some pretty unusual hardware items. Just go and ask them. You maybe have tried this already. If not, it's a good place to start.

In the mean time I've reopened the cylinder head cover and installed helicoils in the holes for bolts 2 and 4. For these you need to really drill quite deep and place the helicoil rather deep. To make room for the tap you have to open up the hole a bit more on the top.
A bit of a nerve wrecking exercise but all in all it worked really well and the head cover is back on with all the bolts nicely torqued.

I've also stripped the paint from the left side engine cover now and installed the needle bearings for the pinion.
I only need to do the sump and then the engine is completely finished!

Will start to take the frame apart to get the rust of and paint it.
