Fowlers were good until the stupidity of Brexit screwed the prices.
Had a look at Cmsnl, looks decent site and seems to have a lot of parts.
Prob now being that I was all chuffed I managed to finish fitting a new chain - However, just the other day, I had to adjust the gear lever until it was going into all gears and thought I had sussed it (when the chain was off). When I went to try it today with the new chain on, it wouldnt go into 1st and when I put it in 2nd it cut out. My first thought being a dodgy switch for the side stand, however as it is now not going into 1st, difficult to get it back to nuetral, and into gear 3 upwars. Im wondering if my clutch needs overhauled.When I returned to my bike couple months ago before doing any work on it, the same thing was happening ie could only got to 1st and second, but changing the clutch cable and adjusting both the cable and the 'gear shift foot pedal' seemed to do the trick when the chain was off.
Its a mystery to a total DIY motorebike mechanic wannabee/noob :-D
Any perspectives on this clutch issue would be appreciated.
Is the chain over-tight?
I checked the chain after I fitted it with the guidance of Haynes manual, so I guess that bit is ok.
Back to the OP, is a UK meet of any interest.
I am up for it let us know where and when.
Skipton (Bolton Abbey Station) on Tuesday 7th September 2021.
Still working on my bike won't be ready by then still have to sort the valves and exhausts system out but will let you know when it's ready for a long trip out and about.
Ok, Skipton would make a good halfway house between Ingleby Barwick and Liverpool. If others chip in, the location may change accordingly.
