  1. I do hope they go back to black and red for 2018, I'd love the normal 260 to be looking like the 300RR. Here's hoping 🀞🀞🀞.
  2. Is it a Gas Gas. I had one in 2013 and there was always small metal traces on the magnetic sump plug when changing the oil.
  3. Just put the Mikuni 26 on from Steve at Motocarb in Liverpool and it worked fine on the settings it came with. Also supplied were a selection of jets either side size wise of the fitted ones for fine tuning. Im 😊. Its all personal choice at the end of the day. Going to stop fannying around with it , now it's had all its faults sorted and ride the thing.
  4. Sherpa325, you were right, all that worry when she was on the bench. Got her to the trial, rode her round the field for 10 mins and it felt just right. All gears selected perfectly and the clutch was fine. Just decided to upgrade the Bing for a Mikuni. ReliefπŸ‘Œ
  5. Thanks Guys, why didn't you post earlier 😑😑 I suppose that makes sense, but I put the crank seal holders in both sides first so the bearings fell to the correct point and the bearings on the inside were flush to the crankcases. When I dropped the crank into the cases, with bearing already heated, ( the crank had already been in the freezer ) it dropped in with a beautiful thud as though it had mated with the crank counterweight. The gap on both sides of the crank to casing were almost the same when measured. It also sounds very well now it's running. Im happy at present, subject to any axial movement.
  6. I've tried both methods now, bearings on the crank then crank into hot casings, also bearings into casings and then crank into bearings. Found the later method easier, heat the casings, bearings have been in the freezer, just drop them in. Heat the bearingswith a heat gun, have the crank in the freezer overnight, just drop it in. Thanks guys.
  7. Yes spotted deliberate mistake, the Red Rose event is actually on Sunday not Saturday
  8. Got her finished today and she runs like it just came out of the Factory gates. Saying that only been up and down the drive, but all seems good. Hopefully out on her this Saturday at a Red Rose event.
  9. Ok guys, looks like I've got it sorted. But thanks goes to Woody and Bondy who identified the issue. The pawls in the selector mechanism came out as I disassembled the engine, without looking i put them back in the mechanism as I would a five speed one. But on closer examination they have a step in one side which needs to face outwards. The gearbox selects all the gears now but some are stiff, but as Sherpa325 says once it's all torqued up , ancillaries fitted and filled with oil I'm sure it'll be fine. Upward and onward.
  10. Thanks Greg, good point, no it was casing to casing, I'll give it a try.
  11. Thanks Woody & Model80. Tried to load an image of the gearbox and selector pauls but it's saying the image is to large. I've never had a problem loading images before.
  12. Does anyone have a diagram of a 340 6 speed gearbox please. Split it several weeks ago, put it back together today and it seemed to find all the gears when manually using the shifting drum. Put the other casing on ( without the crank ) inserted the gear selector shaft and shifting trigger mechanism and it wouldn't engage a gear. Done a couple of 5 speed boxes before no problem. Serves me right for not doing it all at once. A diagram would greatly assist although I bet they're like hens teeth. Its either a selector in the wrong sequence although I don't think so or the shifting trigger mech, but again they look ok. Something to ponder over gentlemen. Thanks in advance as always .
  13. I have a 2015 4rt that I bought new, I've got to say the standard clutch run on ELF HTX 40 is one of the best drag free responsive clutches I've had, it is my first four stroke but had lots of two strokes. I would have thought that with all the R and D Honda have at their disposal they would put a pretty good clutch in from day one. Im only a rider of basic abilities, possibly the expert riders need more. Just my opinion folks.
  14. Hi jrsunt, Id be happy riding as badly as you. πŸ€—πŸ€—. Not sure if your doing the SSDT, but going to watch the first two days. We'll give you a cheer if we see you, only if you go clean of course.
  15. Put it above your comment 2stroke4stroke.
