Some top advice from the top guys if you please

Hi all, well the bike (95 RRS) has been off the road all winter and I've went and spent a few shackles on some new bits, APE CCT, upper and lower cam chain guides, exhaust gaskets, new 200 nm NORBAR torquey, filters etc etc.

now what I'm needing is some pointers from the xperts on here, the exhaust gaskets I have are not the standard copper crush rings but the fibre type, now do these get any application of high temp sealant before installing in the ports, if so how much and where, ive looked around and cant find any tips on this.

secondly what is the correct method of installing the APE CCT? since ive bought new upper and lower guides (wont be touching these but putting her in for this as I don't have a clue about setting timing) would I be better waiting til these have been replaced (possibly cam chain and sprockets too and valve clearences) before installing the CCT............

Finally, I plan on dropping the oil pan to take a look-see at the contents of the belly (if any) and check the rod bearings, now can you get a good look at all 4 rod bearings from underneath? I will be using my ABBAS for the work so I should have plenty of room to get under her................

all help is very much appreciated, I'm pretty much on a short time scale as I need to get her going asap, my partner has been driving me to and from work for months and as we have a young baby its safe to say shes knackered.............................thanks guys

You shouldn't need sealant on the exhaust flange gaskets. If they don't stay in the ports I put some grease on them to hold them in place.

Feel how tight the chain is before you remove the tensioner, you want the manual tensioner to put similar tension on the chain.

It is very unusual to wear out cam sprockets.

When you remove the OEM tensioner, fully extend it and then poke it firmly back into the hole. If the tensioner body is more than a couple of millimeters from the gasket then the chain is probably okay.
Remember, the tensioner is not designed to keep the chain quiet, it's to keep it correctly tensioned.

I don't think it's possible to inspect all four rod bearings without splitting the cases, but you should be able to identify any obvious failure causing heat or movement.
