Dual clutch plates

When I was working on my R42 last winter I was given some incorrect information on how thick the fiber clutch disc material should be. I was told that it should be 6mm and 1/4" should work. Not so,I ended up using 3/16" thick material to get things to work correctly. I suppose that my clutch could h...

Started the R 42

ohh, I was hoping my R42 would sound about like my R60/2. Is it all engine noise or is the exhaust loud also?

R 42 R 52 wheelbase

Peter, Maybe your fork in bent back a little from being donked. I had a Henderson fork that was bent back over 1"' and was hard to tell without comparing it to a known streight one. We put the fork center stem in a three jaw and leveled the forks horizontally and measured from the bed to the fork on...

I measured from the fork/link pivot center line,horizontally back to the frame down tube and it measured 19 5/16". My fender clears the exhaust by 5/8-3/4" or so. Excuse my "...

R42 Speedometer

Thanks for the pictures Peter and Darryl. The bezel on my speedo is a lot taller and goes almost to the bottom of the main body. Now I'm thinking that it may be an interference fit,not screwed on. Dan

R42 rear drive oil fill plug

I hav'nt tackled the speedo yet. You are the first to say that it does screw apart. It has some serious wrench marks where someone has tried. I'm thinking a quick blast with the heat wrench may help.

I can't help with the battery holder as mine is missing also,along with the regulator. I do have an original key. If you want to PM me with a surface mail address I can send you a drawing. Could you send me the deminsions of the regulator box? Dan
