  1. Hi sorry for late responce. bike back together all gears shifting nicely, neutral abit hard to find but manageable. read somewhere if chain a bit tight can cause this issue so i will loosen chain to see if improves. Thanks for everybody's help so far, cheers Graham
  2. Hi I looked into the welded part and apparently the later models came with this part welded. Must have been a mod due to problems before. the teeth aren’t tight so that’s 2 things off the tick list although I am changing the shaft for the one I’ve bought as this one is slightly bent (about.5mm) Thanks for all your help will let you know how it is when it’s running
  3. Hi Snakebite I've had a look. You are quite observant there is a nick in the change shaft but I think it’s how it’s made for clearance to stop it fouling on the drum. Have cleaned the drum now. Have put it together again tonight and it went through all the gears ok (WHAT !!!). Didn’t do anything different. Had to disassemble it to fit new shaft when it arrives so hopefully it will work .
  4. Hi The top picture where you can see the worn bits on the spider, I'm not sure if that's just some bits of the file I used. I think the selector actually connects with the dowels behind that plate. see 2nd picture. The spider like thing I think that is just a way of securing the dowels in situe, i.e bent over them to secure in place. As for the nick on the lever I will have a look at that, I have just bought a second hand replacement for that. Anyway thanks for your help. Will let you know what I find
  5. Hi Neo l have had a look, interesting but would help more with pictures. mine has not got clutch built up and not filled with oil yet. just making sure gears engage before rest of build.
  6. Hi Neo have tried on every tooth tonight and it doesn’t move the drum. I think the movement when using the file is because it is radial so it’s moving it using 2 pins (top and bottom)but when using the selector it’s a push or pull movement on one of the pins. I think the selector drum has to be addressed so the change is lighter and smoother so I think it’s cases split and further internal investigation. will keep you informed. cheers mate and thanks again
  7. Hi thanks Neo. I’ve had a look. It appears to link one tooth different to how I have it. I think I have tried it all ways but I will have a go in the morning. I have changed the internal selector drum, selector forks plus shafts. they looked ok but I thought there must be a reason why the shaft was bent! they are used but I thought I’d try them. internally I think it’s all good because when I use the file to rotate the selector it works through all the gears. Thanks again Graham will let you know tomorrow Yes got a Haynes manual but very vague description. Does look similar to how I’ve done it. Also I downloaded a manual off emanual but again a bit vague
  8. Hi I’m having problems with my gearbox after strip down. I believe the problem was already there before as it was a non runner and when stripping I noticed the gear change shaft was bent about 2mm. I have straightened it now to about .5mm. When I try to change gear when gear selector is built up I get nothing but if I use a flattened file as a selector it changes ok. see photos Any advice would be great cheers Graham
  9. Hi Neo all sorted now had to adjust spring length but all working good now. Cheers Graham
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Hi Neo would both sides need to be removed?
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. Thanks for info. hopefully will have a look over weekend. Cheers
  21. Hi I live in Derbyshire I once went on a 175, nice bike
