Montesa 123 Service Info

Recommended Posts

I have just bought a Montesa Cota 123 (M28) and I,m after some info on, spares and servicing.

Where can I get hold of a manual (Haynes, owners, etc) if possible.

Spares, the bike has been stood for some years but after cleaning the carb, draining the fuel tank and fitting a new plug she fired up and everything seems to work OK. But I would like to give it a thorough service so gaskets, oil types and quantities are required as well as a few cosmetic items (rear brake pedal, seat/tank unit rubber stays, slow action throttle, grips, cables and carb kit)

I live in the Gloucester area.

Any advice and/or tips are much appreciated.

John

I had one of these a few years ago with a view to re-building it,but the kickstart shaft had stripped all the splines off.A common Montesa problem I believe.I phoned round almost all the suppliers and breakers I could find but could not source another.Spares in general,I was told,are very thin on the ground.I sold it on soon after.The couple of times I had it running it seemed a good bike,very light and manageable.It had very high gearing though so no idea what it would have been like in a trial.

Thanks for the replies, I will give Sandifords a call today, I also saw the discs on ebay but i think they're in Spanish but for a couple of quid I may give them a go.

Cheers
