What Did You Do To Your Gas Gas Today?

Recommended Posts

Took my bike appart today for some much needed maintance which has been too long on the list now.

 

I will put in new crankbearings, new clutch basket and crankgear, new idler and kickstartgear, and give the rest a good cleanup! Repair the exhaust (minor leak near rearbrake mounting point), weld the frame (underneath the radiator is a small ''bridge'' which always brakes).

Probably put in the new type waterpump.

 

Notice the piston rings which are carbonised stuck into the piston!

 

and probably more!

Just stripped and cleaned carb thoroughly having had it keep stalling when I took it away. Now just waiting for my new fan rectifier to come and then ride it knowing it is cooling properly...hopefully.

Well as I mentioned elsewhere I rode my newly acquired Gas Gas 125 (2012) today.

My son was getting fed up with hanging around to kick start my old 1980s Montesa.

At age 82 next birthday it was getting to heavy for me anyway ! The old legs give out

more easily nowadays which makes me wonder how I coped with my BSA rigid 350

B32 Oh silly me that was 60 years ago !!  :hyper:

The gearbox bearing was stuck, so took some effort to get out!

Hopefully it will be going for some years more now!

Fed up with awkward oil fill (not really that awkward but anyway) total oil charge can be held in the funnel so nice and easy now!
