I stuck new clutch plates in the motor the other day and noticed some lateral play in the crown wheel and also that the edges have worn leaving a sharp edge - presumebly because the brass bush behind is worn. Rich Presley sold me a ' improved' bush with grooves cut to improve oil circulation.

This leads to the above question about maintenance of a TS1 motor. The engine was built about 2 yrs ago by Diablo Moto and has covered approx 8k.

Are there any other areas I should be checking and parts re-newing whilst the engine is in the shed?

Everything is as should be but i'd rather do it now rather in 6 months time.
