If you don't have one, it would pay dividends for you to acquire one and if you have one, you should take time to read through it.

Just a suggestion....

Save the old races. Good to press the new in with and certain other little projects.

They are standard bearings made by all the big players, SKF, FAG, etc. Get the numbers off them and you can pick them up at any bearing house.
Do you by any chance know the SKF/FAG number? Might be attending a "Boxer tinkering event" so it would be cool to try and get it sorted.

Wheel bearings and swingarm bearings are 30203. Some brands may have a suffix such as 30203Q, or 30203J but they are still the same bearing.

All the local places are quoting ~20£ compared to 10£ at motobins.

Needless to say, getting them at motobins :)

Had them looked at today with a Boxer expert. He had 28 sizes of weddingbands and we found one that worked.

The one we ended up using was 4/10ths smaller.

I see it's using the 53 Bing carburetor. Should it comes with BING CV from the factory? 53 Bing is usually used for earlier /5's.

Nope. That's the appropriate slide carb for the R60/5/6 and /7.

Not for the /6 and /7 I think, as I have no choke with the /5 carbs.

Yes, that slight variation, but definately not a cv as mentioned by the other fellow.

Keep those /5 carbs, I love mines simplicity and you'll not get anything but a headache out of a used set of /6 diaphram Bings. Here's my /5 for comparason. Mines a 1970 titled as a 1971.

Today I drained all the fluids - Might have fluid migrating from shaft to final drive.

Gave the engine mounting bolts some coppergrease too, for ease of removal later on.
