  1. Hi Neo all sorted now had to adjust spring length but all working good now. Cheers Graham
  2. Lesson learnt, this is my second refurb And I think I got a bit cocky as my first was a Honda and honda seem to have twice as many parts to them as other bikes. hopefully will sort it in morning. Will let you know cheers
  3. Nice one, you’ve got keen eyesight, I will have another try in morning. at least I now know I’ve got the right linkage. when I dismantled this bike I was too cocky thinking it would be easy to suss everything out but I was wrong. cheers Graham As for the spring I’ve got a collection of them but will look for the original in my drawer
  4. Thanks Neo I think I will get a new one but still don’t know how the linkage works. Might have to improvise a little to attach spring to brake pedal. I have posted on Facebook forum for someone to post any more photos, hopefully someone will send photos without too much abuse thanks again for your help cheers Graham
  5. Hi NEO Thanks for your reply, yeah mine is different. The brake switch is the back side of frame and the pedal has no hole for spring to attach. I have attached some photos but no matter which way I position the linkage it doesn’t work. It actually pushes the spring in when you push the brake on. where I have put the red arrow. I wonder if that bracket will help in some way? further investigation is needed. thanks again NEO
  6. Hi everyone I am trying to connect the rear brake light switch and the linkage from the brake light switch to the rear brake pedal has got me scratching my head a little. it is the linkage from the spring that returns the brake light switch plunger to normal after the rear brake has been released, there is a fixing that fits on the rear of the pedal with a connecting rod on it to connect the spring, no matter which way i position it the movement is the wrong way. it has been a year or more since i dismantled it and i am not sure this is even the right bit as I cant find the linkage on cmsnl. a photo of someones linkage would be appreciated. or a photo of where the springs attaches to. I hope this makes sense cheers Graham
  7. Hi Neo would both sides need to be removed?
  8. I’m pretty sure that’s my problem. It makes sense now, I assumed the oil found its way through oil passageways. Will drain and check it out tomorrow. Thanks again for your help as the photos. i remember when I joined this club, you were helpful then. Cheers Graham
  9. Thanks for that Neo. i think you’ve hit the nail on the head with the closed bearings. It’s my first engine rebuild and obviously didn’t think it through, I will check the bearings and open them up if necessary. Thank you for your tactful answer and not insulting my lack of knowledge. will let you know
  10. No it’s still on engine stand waiting for top end to be finished. Added oil early to see if any leaks so if I needed to strip it would be easier. I have levelled engine to replicate it in the frame and put in gear and rotated crank .so far not made any difference.
  11. Hi. I have just split my casings and replaced all bearings, I have rebuilt the casings and all the bottom end. I have started filling gearbox with oil and after 1/2 litre it reads the correct level on the dipstick, the manual says the capacity is 1.1 litres. Any ideas on what ive done wrong would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Graham
  12. Thanks for info. hopefully will have a look over weekend. Cheers
