  1. Well it turned out to be a leaking main seal on the dry side. all sorted. rode it a Trial on Sunday and I'm afraid it's not for me. I prefer a newer bike. anyone want to buy a Climber 280??
  2. Hey, thanks for that Ross, I'm pretty sure it's in the right position, so I'll check for air leaks on the inlet rubber. Suppose it's all fairly old rubber on there. got to say, it was nice to ride on it today, albeit briefly!
  3. The clutch is sorted. The basket I'd got from SWM Moto was the same part number, so that ruled that out. Everything else was in place. b40rt had pointed me to another link regarding clutches. I degreaser then went over the driven steel plates with emery cloth. Cleaned them off the hey presto, working clutch. just goes to show huh? thanks for all you advice lads. Invaluable!! i do have another issue though, I'm not sure the disc valve is set correctly. it revs to the moon when off the choke. do any of you good people have the set up details for the disc valve and whether I need to be at TDC or so many degrees before?? bloody hard to find details on these Climbers.
  4. spoke to Richard Allen today, he also recommends using a good light gear oil. Got some Putoline today. Martin at SWM Moto thinks I've mixed up the driven steel plates as there's one that's 1.5mm thick whereas the rest are 1mm. He's pretty sure that the clutch basket with the 6 studs in have remained the same size but I'll check them both tomorrow. Thanks for the advice lads.
  5. Hmmm, that'd be a bugger. I'll check tonight. suppose it'd run with one Spring missing if I have to put the original back in? but I'll check numbers and measure them both tonight, thanks for the info fella. its so close to being ready to trial, nearly there!
  6. After finally getting my '93/'94 Climber 280 rebuilt on Monday. The clutch is slipping like crazy. Post build I noticed gear oil weeping from the kick start/gear shaft seal so Martin at SWM Moto sorted my out. after rebuild number 3 the clutch slips terribly. Prior to this it had 10W40 in it. It now has ATF. I gave also replaced the clutch top basket as one of the fingers was missing. Nothing else has changed. any help or comments please, I'm baffled!
  7. Ive got a pair from Richard Allen, like for like. we'll see how I get on with them.
  8. Hey good people of the forum. '93 Climber: stripped out the forks tonight as part of a full rebuild, the left side stanction chrome is very very badly worn. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced company that can re chrome it or will it be cheaper to buy another set of forks....if I can find any? cheers Graeme
  9. Hi Captainvette, Took me some time but I got another bottom end from a guy in Italy. Built it up and the poxy thing still wouldn't run off choke. I relented and bought an ultrasonic cleaner. Stripped the carb, put it through the cleaner a few times, it now runs great. Although weeping gear oil so another strip down is needed.
  10. Photograph everything. Memory is a bitch.
  11. And don't just nip up the flywheel nut thinking it'll be fine, the bugger will work loose and shear the woodruff key. 100N/M or 73 ft/lbs
  12. I've got the same bike. I use standard cheap I 10W40 oil in mine and change it every other trial. Chances are that the clutch basket is stepped, which makes the clutch very notchy and jerky. You can file it down to make it better, but it's only a short term fix.
  13. Ok, been a bit busy of late but back on the job now. I've split the cases to replace the left side (cheers b40rt), I'll throw in a set of main seals too, but what is the recommended torque setting for the flywheel? 100Nm? Also top end torque settings too please if any kind souls could help me out. Thanks everyone.

  15. Ok, continuing from my previous post. Thanks to a top man on this very here TC, I've got myself a left side crankcase (Cheers Ross). My question is about setting the disc valve timing. Where does the valve sit in relation to TDC and which way round does it sit? Never been into a disc valve motor before. Cheers Graeme
