Re: Neutral/charging light cover

Jon, Originally the plastic was melted over underneath and that would hold it in. I have done it that way with a pencil soldering iron as well as using a glue gun and gluing it. If it is off the bike and I have good access to it I would use the glue gun and make two small glue spots on each end. If ...

Riddle me this racing aficionados

Hello, I was browsing around the Internet yesterday and I came upon this very strange rear end suspension configuration on a plunger frame. I am wondering if this is an "official" racing suspension or just something someone put together. I still don't fully know how it is working from the pictures b...

Re: R51/3: Space between the two sides of the front wheel - pic. inside

Micha, Apologies for not getting back sooner, I have been quite busy..... I just checked my R51/3 and the wheel is in the middle. In fact mine looks a bit to the left but its an optical illusion. It is in the middle. I would make sure the your brake drum is fully seated in the wheel. It's possible t...

Re: Kickstarter Rubber Stop

This is interesting. When I was over at Veterama last in 2019, I was actually looking to buy bump rubbers (the ones I had broke in 3 months and were poorly made) and was holding two kickstarter bump stops from a reputable parts source and they were two different sizes. No doubt about it. I told the ...

Re: Slinger service cost

That is quit high and I am sure they will be on the high side of the estimate. There are others in the area that are more reasonable.

Re: Kickstarter Rubber Stop

Is this for your R50? There are two (maybe three) sizes and you need to make sure you have the right one for the tube size. You can tighten them down quite tight as well. Let me know which this is for and we can get the part number from the library.
