Moving it forward and back there was definately "click into position" feel.
So I stripped her down


Old left - new right. You can see the 2 shiny rings on the shaft. But I couldn't feel them.

The shaft could most probably have gone a bit further, but fukkit, I changed it.
The shaft now moves smoothly in and out.



The plastic gears looked untouched


Putting the motor in was actually easier than I thought. Just a little awkward at time doing it on my own


The corner office is looking a little more respectable again


Next up.....
Wiring loom
wheel bearings
sub frame

I also need to finish the frame parts in Solidworks and complete the triple clamp designs
thats a good idea to change the waterpump parts while its down. now when you get it on the road no worries!

Little bits.
I'm putting together a little montage and will post when I have a bit more.

I'm debating with myself at the moment on the pros and cons of delacing my wheels and having the hubs and rims powder coated? Or just the hubs? Or leave them?
The biggest factor to consider is the putting back together.


They say talking to oneself is fine. It is when you start answering back and having a conversation that you know you are in trouble!!!

No, no, no… the biggest „fun” is to free the rims from the old spokes. Some of them are really stuck… It took me some days to free them all. Have fun! :)

Mainly to design and build a set of triple clamps to fit my YZ forks. As well as raising links for the swing arm.

But the main reason is because I can

The main frame I found on the internet. But all the rest of the parts are made from scratch - Graph paper, vernier, protractor, square, radius guages.
