On my way back from Kelso i hit a long stretch and had Dragster flat out blasting past a few scooters ,towards the end it pulled back for a second so i dropped the revs and throttled on .It did not pull on as normal,so i decided to pull over .It would not go on the stand easily ,The reason being the wheel was wobbling about abit :shock: :shock: :shock: [URL=http://s245.photobucket.com/user/0 ... .jpg[/img][/url] Image[/u[URL=http://s245.photobucket.com/use ... .jpg[/img]rl]

oh dear, that looks a bit off a mess, i think you can buy a support for the rear wheel to prevent this happening, i belive polini make them, i bet you were pleased you pulled over to have a look, could have been a serious accident with a breakage like that, are you going to get it welded back up, or buy another casing ?
best regards,

I am /was running standard 180 ,54mm crank 2mm packer ,Scorpion exhaust was a early engine .I have a rolling nut engine case of a Diamond Geezer Rick !!!
It was a lucky escape ,Basically the belt and mudguard held the casings together till i pulled over .
Going to fit a Engine brace and a few upgrades :D
