    Leave the front brake alone and use the rear brake
  2. Fantic 241 oil leak from Gearbox

    The 241 is a very simple engine and has no oil filter. The sight glass does not normally cause problems. Very occasionally the casings do crack but this is unlikely. I notice that someone has fitted replacement bolts to hold the side casing on and this reminded me of when I did this myself and used bolts that were just a fraction too long resulting in the bolts bottoming out in their holes and although everything seemed tight, The casing was not quite being pulled against the other facing resulting in a very difficult to locate slow leak. I'd check that if I were you
  3. 240 Swinging arm bolt removal

    Original is definitely screwed into the frame however, it sounds as if the one you have is non standard. I would suggest the following way forward... Weld the right hand side nut to the shaft. The heat from welding may well be enough to loosen it off but if not you will need to heat the frame where the it screws into the left hand side (assuming that your non standard one does screw in. In short, heat is your friend

    Any trials on the 17th July around north Devon ?
  9. Cub Wheel Alignment

    The Cub is always a compromise simply because of where the final drive sprocket is positioned in the engine. The best compromise in my opinion is to widen the swinging arm in order to move the tire away from the chain. Offsetting the engine slightly also improves this and to some extent these two modifications cancel out the bad effects of the other.

    Sorry. Yes it was full but should be space now
  11. Alloy Hubs

    I'm thinking of buying some hubs for my Bantam. I know Alan Whitton does some but others are also available. I'd love to hear peoples comments and suggestions as to the pro's and con's of each. For example, I understand the Whitton hubs require over size brake shoes. Prices would be good too.

    What chain size does everyone use ?
  13. Beta Rev /evo 200 Why So Expensive Compared To A 250. Sh

    Have you considered fitting a 225cc conversion kit to the Gasgas ? I love mine. Beautiful soft power and more than enough for a clubman. Even one of my build !
