  1. Ive got a pair from Richard Allen, like for like. we'll see how I get on with them.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Photograph everything. Memory is a bitch.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

  9. 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
  10. That is a lovely looking bike.
  11. Found them on Amazon for £35 that'll do. Although it may not be worth bothering with because so far on the strip down I've discovered; Clutch Spring holder has had a leg snapped off, it's been taken out together with the spring and bolt. When all that went pop it's broken a tooth off of the intermediate gear. Found the tooth stuck to the drain plug! Gear selector shaft is badly worn from not being tight enough. Kick start shaft is the same. Kick start lever has had its shoulder made up from weld. Enthusiasm is waning and I've not got the flywheel off yet. But at least the mains seem ok.
  12. That's the one, all my pullers are for an external flywheels. Where abouts are you?
  13. Oh joy, none of my flywheel pullers will fit the bloody machine. Must I spend nearly £70 for one from Aprillia? I'm beginning to dislike this bike.
  14. Yeah man, have a look. Cheers
  15. I'm in Cumbria b40rt I may as well give it a try pschrauber before I try to buy new cases. Could be interesting?
