Re: Advice Required on Fitting New Taper Roller Head Bearing

Well I assembled my triple clamp, steering head bearings and forks this evening - all went smoothly and that's a pile more new and shiny restored bits added to the bike...looking good. 8 mins at 160 degrees and the inner race dropped nicely onto the bottom of the stem with just a little gentle persu...

Re: Does anyone have an original number plate/license plate?

Hi Steve,

I have found a guy in the Uk who does replica plates and can do it - he just needs some artwork to photograph or at least copy.

Re: Does anyone have an original number plate/license plate?

Can I liven this one up again and ask if anyone has a HEXAGON dealer number plate on their bike I can have a detailed photo of? I am becoming an anorak but the restoration is coming along so beautifully that it would be so nice to put a big old plate onto her just like from brand new. I have photos,...

Re: Advice Required on Fitting New Taper Roller Head Bearing

Thanks for the advice chaps - will get to it this week and keep you posted,

I like the idea of freezing the outer races and using a draw bolt - much more polite as an insertion method.

Cheers

Re: Query on 1979 900 Replica Body parts

Hi. That part appears common to the 900SS and the parts book for that more (help)fully lists it as "Distanziale (Spacer) ø6,5 x ø14 x 4". (From someone who spent ages flicking back and forth between the two parts books last year :) ) Hiya, can you help the uninitated with how to interpret the dimen...

So I cleaned it well using brake cleaner and an air line, then used a syringe and needle to fill with oil once I had depressed ...
