Re: Gearbox locked after rebuild

Cheers Gary, gonna go for a strip out of whole gb including bearing. I'll try another combination of different layshaft, bearing and endplate, as gearbox is sfiff as f'''', even with a 1.6 shim. Maybe its due to using a new SIL gp 200 gb and an endplate with a new bush?

Re: Gearbox locked after rebuild

Having tried to see where the kickstart shaft is hitting the clutch ( covered it in marking blue) and found no marks, I have rebuilt the kickstart mechanism, found bushes protruding and corrected, re-shimmed etc. Still Jammed :? .

Took the decision to remake the kickstart mech and noticed the inner bush was a little proud, so ive fixed that and will try again when I'm back in the g...

Gearbox locked after rebuild

PX frame prep, blast or dip?

200 rebuild

Question is are there any upgrades I should consider, like I said stock ish. It'll need a new crank and top end. Is it worth fitting a 125 top gear or a cosa c...
