    Hi all Tried to remove the shaft securing the swingarm to the frame today, no joy, seems stuck solid. I have recently purchased the bike which was restored some years ago but not used since then, the swingarm has been re-chromed so I'm supprised the retaining shaft did not come out easily ? Any thoughts and tips on removing the shaft will be most appreciated. Regards Phil.

    RL250 exhaust

    For those who are interested the inside of a RL250 main box looks like this: http://i513.photobucket.com/albums/t336/philcbr/RL250%20stuff/DSCF2755_zps5mlqwzrg.jpg http://i513.photobucket.com/albums/t336/philcbr/RL250%20stuff/DSCF2759_zps66zpinn7.jpg Gave the inside a quick clean with a wire brush, looks ok. There is something behind the mesh which is hard enough to rattle, I’m guessing it is the remains of some sound absorbent material mixed with the oil which has formed a hard substance. Replacing the wadding? Will be difficult as the mesh is spot welded in place….more work. Phil

    RL250 exhaust

    Hi Can anyone help me with information about the exhaust system on my 1980 RL250? I'm trying to find out if the main box has any sound reducing material inside or is it just an empty box? I have cut open the rear box and found evidence of some sound deadening material, so I will clean it up and re-pack it and weld it up. Regards Phil
