Re: New spokes and rims on 1975 860GT

Is that a spoke torque wrench used in the pics, what setting did you use?

Re: wider rear tyre

Its all down to rim size, 120 tyre fits a 2.5 rim. You can sqeeze a 130 on but any bigger distorts the tyre profile. So it starts with a bigger rim first. I have a 3.0 Boranai like Morad rear rim on my Laveda and now I can run a 140 T31 Radial Bridgestone. Thats the bigest correct profile spoked rim...

Re: Polished Rockers

That and really shinny Borani rims, reminds me my once a year 3-day rim polish is overdue. Might wait for till the temp reduces to below 40c though.

Re: 860GT Rear Wheel Drum Brake Spacer Quest for Clarification

By wheel swop I didnt mean a change to a completely different wheel, I was talking at a pit stop for fast work and having the spacer stay attached to the wheel and a factory part. Just a guess.

Sometimes people make spacers that become captured, stay in place to speed a wheel swop. Who knowns

Re: 860GT drum brake rear wheel spoke question

The huge rear twin leader drum wheel on my Laverda was respoked and it was done all inner, the young bloke said its fine. 6 months later when I was told I had a wobble I took the wheel off to discover 12 broken spokes. I think having the spokes pass each other in the same line and touch and bend was...

Re: 860GT drum brake rear wheel spoke question

Here is a better pic, I think each differant spoke used used alternatively on both sides of the wheel if I understand it, and maybe I dont.

Re: 860GT drum brake rear wheel spoke question

Ok on both sides of the hub is a rib that has a hole for the spoke,the spoke can come out on either side of this hole.So they should alternatly go either side. That has half the spokes on each side of the wheel differat bends and lenths. So looking at the wheel from the side, its nippel end then spo...

Re: 860GT drum brake rear wheel spoke question

Maybe its one spoke from the inside and the next from the outside of the lip on the hub, that helps to allow them to cross and not touch each other, been going through this on my Laverda. Hope your rim was drill correctly, who knew how critical this is. No idea if this helps or is correct for your a...

Re: 1974 750 GT carb question

The exact same thing happened to my Pantah with a glass tank when a mate owned it, that became obvious when the bottom of the tank came off in his garage one night.

Re: Clutch Basket Bearing Recommendations? 860GT

I have had the same issue on another Maque, the parts bloke kept sending me the latest revised bit that was supposedly better. They kept breaking till I discovered what was happening, I asked for the earlier part and never broke another one. It only took a year and a dozen broken parts and stuffed r...
