    action: -replaced chain drive sprockets to 17/45. result: -i havnt touched 5th gear yet even at +45 mph. :big grin: -better speed control and rpm range. -lots of torque, just what a big single is. 3rd gear likes 25/40+mph within 2500/4500 rpm so 4th and 5th will be great for mile munching...

    The gear lever on my '93 funduro is very loose, despite the bolt being fully tightened. I tried to take it off the other day to inspect the splines and failed. I've ordered another a new lever, and will bring the hammer out to take the old one off - but if the splines on the shaft are knackered...

    Has been happening more and more often - always on the change up from 1st - usually when I'm driving away from a stop... Will sometimes miss second and sit in neutral, will sometimes go into second, drive a bit, then jump back into neutral (scares the crap out of me going round corners!). I've...

    I've been surfing the web all night and I'm no closer to finding any ideas. I've got upto £500 to spend on a new jacket and trousers, I'd tried on some HG stuff this morning an quite liked it but that was before 'the boss' upped my budget. I'm going to go back to HG and try on some of the...
