Well done Nutso.

This stood out to me

I dropped the box out last nite due to Nutsos' bloody insistence & took it apart tonite.

Of course there was the usual bullshit involved. I don't have a flange puller so was going to get the local mech to whip it out with the official BMW one for the nominal fee. I figured I should really make one for home so went to my engineering customer to cut some steel & weld a nut on it. The engineer couldn't help himself watching me waste time with measurements, circles etc & wrenched the steel out of my hands & made it himself. it was all looking good however the flange was so fricking tight on there the welds holding the nut broke before the flange could be worked free. The other boys had stopped for smoko so my mate threw his hands up in the air & went for a break.

I slunk out & drove down to the local mech, tail between my legs & 5 mins later & $20 lighter the box was given back to me flange rattled free

On the workbench back home I heated & dropped the arse end off.

Damn shit piss - you know there is always that moment where it's nearly off & you slow down to make sure the shims that had been carefully placed during the last installation don't drop off without you knowing where they came from. Well one fricking popped off - aaargh

looking at everything in the box I can't see anything broken.





I shifted the gears a few times & the only thing that could potentially be a fault was the fork most of the time wouldn't sit correctly in the 1st gear notch on the cam shifter thing.
I out this down to maybe the shaft the forks slide on wasn't prefectly straight due to it floating at one end & not secured in the arse end of the cover. A good "stomp" would get it in there with a bit of a twist of the endshaft.






So I think I will button it back up with a new gasket & see what happens.

Couple of things. The gear shifter is held on with 2 bolts at the front of the box. Are those torqued up, ie is there any slop there that would stop the box shifting properly.

Your photo didn't give a clear look at the faces of the shock absorber. Any wear there?

Good call on the 2 bolts i will check those.

When you say the faces you mean the machined ends? One end you can't see but I will check the open end - I think I checked & couldn't see any marks indicating it spinning but will check.

Look on the UKGSer input shaft. The shock absorber has a rounded tip. Is yours missing a chunk (photo 2)? Or is that just poor lighting?

Also they talked about a weld in the cam plate that sometimes lets go. Worth having a look at that too.

Gearbox gasket arrived today with a new wheel nut spanner. I know -exciting aye?

I really got to get out riding this weekend. Last weekend was the first time in 5 years i haven't taken one of the lil ponies on the xmas toy run. it was shitty weather admittedly but they do love waving at the crowd - won't be too long before they outgrow it i spose.


i've been thinking about the lurching thing. I reckon it is the shock absorber thing in the gearbox spinning as that is what it feels like but I wonder if it does that cos something in the final drive or driveshaft is binding sending the tension back thru the gearbox???

yeah nah on the other hand if that was happening the rear wheel would lock up too. Oh well I'll put the box back on & see what happens. I need to save for a rebuildable driveshaft too.

Measured for shims? Correct? Likely cause...

Going to see an engineer customer of mine with the correct equipment to get it shimmed correctly hopefully tonite.

Got the RS back together now. Just need some gas in the tank, a battery in the cradle, hit the button, & hopefully I'll get some noise. Tonight. First time running in 5 years - I hope. . Then we'll see what other things crop up. I expect leaks.

When I went into the workshop the other day I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.



Since then things have gone to crap.

I shimmed my gearbox & found the gear binding - it was too tight.

I went to replace the rear pads on the mtb & chipped off the lil tits on the pistons trying to push them back in to fit the new pads. I haven't been sleeping well & feel grumpy all the time even after many coffees... It's Sunday afternoon & I feel like I haven't had a weekend...
