sequential gear selector

Asking for a friend.... he has bought one of these for his Mk1 T5 and feels that the gear change needs to be turned too far each time he changes gear, as in to change up it's right round to the mark for 4th on the headset gear change.

Has anyone else fitted one and what are your thoughts??

Re: P200e issue!

I second the comment regarding the fuel pipe being too long, I had exactly the symptoms you describe a few years ago.

BGM Pro 10 spring clutch fitting

Anybody fitted one? What's the best practice for fitting the nut considering the tab washer can't be used? Loctite just?

PX200 timing

Ok I know about the A and IT mark but having put a crank in a rebuild I want to check the timing, It is, or rather was an electric start engine and there seems to be a bit of confusion as to the correct timing. So, is the factory setting for a PX200 electric start model 18 degrees or 23 degrees? Tha...

Re: readspeed 6 plate......

Studs, I think Shayne's s type TS1 has a Readspeed 6 plate in it. Now it hasn't been used that much but when I had the motor in my GP it was good, I'm sure I read on here that people had put decent miles on them with no issues but that was maybe 5/6 years ago.
